Club X is a non-profit organization (incorporated in California) serving as an educational, charitable, and social group. Based in San Diego, Club X is composed of a very diverse group of people, all enjoying some area of a lifestyle involving Leather, SM or Fetish interests.
We are a pansexual fun-loving, caring, well-adjusted, educated, focused, and dedicated organization serving our community. We are actively working in our society to reduce prejudices about people's personal choices in life.
Our group is one among many such groups across the nation showing by example how positive and healthy the Leather/SM/Fetish lifestyle is. We act as a clearinghouse for information of related community events around the country and in San Diego. We provide fund-raising for related charitable organizations in order to strengthen the community both internally and externally.
Club X also meets monthly for educational workshops and demonstrations along with various social events so that our members can become better acquainted and share ideas and to create a sense of community within its members. With the exception of the monthly board meetings and X-clusive play parties, all of our events are open to non-members.
You are welcome to join no matter what your experience or degree of interest. We also encourage any interested like-minded adults to just attend any of our workshops, discussions or socials/mixers! We range in life experience from the very novice and curious to the very seasoned and informed, but we are all searching and joyful persons sharing common interests. We don't care about your gender, sexual orientation, color, politics or religion, just your healthy interest in SM and your desire to learn more about it. We are warm and real.
On the forefront of our thinking is that all SM or sexual play activities among adults must be Safe, Sane, Consensual, and Fun.
- Safe: we educate our members and the community on how to reduce the risk of AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases.
- Sane: activities must be governed by sensible and sober guidelines and limits.
- Consensual: activities continue only as long as all the persons involved give their consent to its action. This keeps us healthy and mature in our body and self-esteem.
- Fun: while it may seem obvious, we also try to remind ourselves of the joy that can be found living this lifestyle.
Here are the bylaws by which we do these things!
