Over the course of a few years Conversio Virium has grown from an insular group of five or so regular attendees to a whopping thirty-odd people showing up to meetings every Monday. Those Monday meetings are some of the best sources for BDSM education for younger people in New York City, and they’re a great place to meet fellow kinky students. But since kink is also a social activity, we also want to encourage people to have fun with one another outside of CV meetings.
And indeed, don’t many of us do so already?
So to take that to the next level, I’d like to briefly direct your attention to the Conversio Virium LiveJournal (LJ) Community, a place where a few of us in CV are hoping we can begin to organize semi-regular social outings just because they’re always a lot of fun! We’re thinking coffee shop get-togethers, bar nights, maybe the occasional “let’s totally take over a restaurant” dinners (Summer CV style), or whatever else we come up with. For instance, a bunch of CVers and their friends hit the movies a few weeks ago to see Sweeney Todd, because just think of the possible kink innuendoes with all those knives on screen. Also, evidently, Johnny Depp!
Everyone is invited to join or watch the Conversio Virium LJ community; it is an informal group started by CV members and has no official affiliation with Conversio Virium. It’s just that a bunch of us want a place in cyberspace for group socialization. Obviously, LJ rules do apply:
- You must have a LiveJournal (LJ) account. LJ accounts are free.
- In your profile, you must have a registered birthdate that implies that you are at least 14 years old because the community will deal with adult concepts, including various forms of human sexuality.
As an opener, we’re inviting everyone out to a bar night:
So, a few of us have done this before and it turned out to be such a huge success that, largely thanks to The Professor, it’s happening again!
A bar night (for those 21 and over, of course), will be tonight, Tuesday the 29th, at O’Connells Pub on Broadway at 108th Street at 8 PM. They’ve got pitchers of beer for $8 and a lot of space to hang out in. So if this sounds like your kind of thing, drop on by and have some fun with us.
Expect drinks, conversation, possibly lots of finger foods, and whatever else we all decide to bring along.
See you then!
