New to the Scene?

If you are newer* to the scene? Join us for a fun and informational meeting!
With the huge influx of newer people to the scene, we see a dozen new people at each Meet-N-Greet! Plus it’s just getting bigger! In Columbus alone, not counting the peripheral cities, there are over 5000 kinky people – and over 28,000 in Ohio, who are on FetLife. It's amazing! More and more people are joining the Columbus Community on a daily basis, and lots of those people have questions.

The cost?....Nada! (If you want some eats, you buy your own food & drink...)

topic 3: Scene Etiquette & Protocols

The AIS Staff does our best to answer the queries that come up, between the Meet-N-Greet, our Articles, the AIS Main FetLife Group, and the BS'ing Podcast, but sometimes stuff doesn't get answered! We know that you've been probably doing what we did when we were new - scouring the online resources like FetLife, reading books, tying up your teddy bears, and flogging yourself and/or your partner – and you think you have gone as far as possible without getting out into the community.

You have been asking for it, and here it is - an on-going orientation the AIS way! If you have been in the public scene for *less than 6 months, this meeting is for you. It's a great way to learn what happens, and how to interact in many of the environments you will encounter within the community. We have designed a rotating series of four ongoing meetings for new people. Each monthly meeting will address a specific aspect of the public scene and will have a designated time for open questions.

topic 3: Power Exchange, Etiquettes & Protocols; Scene Vocabulary & More
This month we will be discussing Etiquette in the scene along with some common protocols. We will also be addressing scene vocabulary, we will also shed some light on some of the various scene roles and how to discover yours!

One of the best ways to learn about what it is that we do is to be able to have some face to face interaction with kinky people both in and out of kinky settings! So if you are new – come on out! Bring your questions, and join us for a fun, informational meeting in a safe and non-judgmental environment.
