Founded in 1981, the Lesbian Sex Mafia (LSM) is one of the oldest women s BDSM support and education groups in the country. We are located in New York City, with a membership primarily in the tri-state area of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. However, we also have members along the East Coast, across the country and even in Europe!LSM is a support and information group for lesbian, bisexual, heterosexual, transsexual and intersexed women who live their daily lives as women and all female-born transgender persons who feel they have a place in the women's community interested in fantasy and role playing, bondage, discipline, S/M, fetishes, costumes, alternate gender identities and uninhibited sexual expression in a safe, sane, consensual and confidential way.We are not a social service agency. Furthermore, we are interested in providing information, encouragement and general support. Our principles are few, but basic: confidentiality, consensuality, safety and the right of women to explore their sexuality as they choose.
This is NOT a space for male-born male-identified people, even nice pansexual or gay ones - there are many other groups better suited to your tastes and we ask that you join one of them instead.
