BDSM stands for bondage/discipline, dominance/submission and sadism/masochism.
The book club thread on fetlife is awesomely active, btw
How much information they ask for and how much you give them is entirely up to you - but there are obviously means by which you can be circumspect if you choose.
The site has grown at an incredible rate since its inception as it has been seen to offer a viable alternative to some of the more established kinky sites that are purely designed as hook up platforms!
There are a number of people here who are also members of Fetlife - authors and readers alike.
I still haven't gotten used to how the groups work, but yeah, if creepy oversexed dudes with bad grammar isn't your thing, fetlife is the best online thing to happen to BDSM in a while. It's quirky and relaxed.
John Warren is a member and there is also a group built around his book, The Loving Dominant http://fetlife.com/groups/5446 That's just for starters!
The groups work pretty much the same way as they do here - you click to join the group and select any thread topic of interest to read and post within. Your personal pages keep tabs on the action in the group and your threads of interest.
Fetlife is no different to any other in that respect.
I cannot tell if it anything like Facebook as I am not there, but somehow I think not
The justification for videos only being available to paying members was based on the financial cost of supporting having the feature available - it was an expensive addition to the Fetlife site and it was felt that those that wanted it could put their hands in their pockets!
I have been a member of Fetlife since not long after it hit the scene and I have never felt as if I had been ignored or treated differently because I chose not to ante up.
I have joined the groups I am interested in and participate in the discussion where I feel I have something to contribute. I have formed some interesting friendships with locals and been lucky enough to have them translate into real life experiences. Its definitely a place where you get out of it what you are prepared to put in.
Message me privately here and I will give you a link to my Fetlife profile if you are interested in chatting in that environment.
If you are new to the scene, I would recommend looking for munches in your local area. Munches are held usually at restaurants, and are generally street clothes attire, where kinky people can talk.
I was at a munch last night and wound up talking to a guy who had done some reading, but hadn't been to a munch before.
Feel free to message me with questions. :)
Are you sure we're talking about the same Fetlife?
Becoming a paid member is cheap and the only difference between paid and unpaid is paid members can view and upload videos and they have a little note in their profile. I've been a very active member for years now and have never paid (due to lack of funds... I'd love to give them money.) There's a LOT of women on FetLife (yes, "real" ones)... possibly more than any other altsex site out there, and there are a number of active groups for intellectual discourse. Are you sure you're not talking about Alt.com or Bondage.com?
I find FL is very nice for coordinating and socializing with our local group.
The number of groups is frustrating and hard to navigate; I have tried to bookmark some in hopes of putting together my own personal guidebook at some point. However, one tip I *can* give you is to find leaders (in your local area or overall) and skim through their profiles for what groups they belong to to find general resources. Not only John Warren but also Jay Wiseman, Midori, Gloria Brame, Tristan Taormino, Douglas Kent, and I'm sure others, have FL profiles if you need somewhere to start.
I have not ponied up the $5 a month to support FL yet but since I rarely run into anything it would help me with (occasionally limits to history; less often a video someone has linked to; YMMV) I figure that it can wait until I have more finances. A lot more expensive than LT but then LT doesn't stream video, which really drives up hosting costs (lots of bandwidth).
Would the purpose be to chat about books or lifestyle? Can anyone form a group or must you be a paid member(on FL)? Anyway please invite me as soon as its formed.
(I have a different name on FL)
I'll look at the group formation guidelines and get back to y'all tonight or tomorrow.
