It’s a rare relationship where your kinky interests match up perfectly with your partner’s interests. Maybe you are in a new relationship and one of you is really interested in BDSM and the other one is reluctant to play. Or perhaps you are in a long term relationship and thinking about how to keep it hot, what to do when the kids get older, or could it work to be polyamourous. Join Beatrice and david, who have over the years successfully worked through plenty of real world issues in their kinky relationship, as they lead the group in a discussion of what works and how to make it over the hurdles you're likely to encounter.

The group is gathering at The Armory, which is located at 1800 Mission St, San Francisco, CA 94103.

Enter at the main entrance on Mission Street, free parking in the rear of the building. BART access from 16th St / Mission Street Station.

Bend over, boardroom!

From the April 3, 2013 edition of the San Francisco Bay Guardian:

Beatrice Stonebanks wants to teach you how to be a corporate dominatrix

All too often in the workplace, women fight to hide their sexuality. In Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg's Lean In, the controversial feminist-treatise-of-the-moment on combating sexism in the corporate world, Sandberg references a tech worker who goes so far as to remove her earrings before coming to work, so fervently does the employee wish to minimize her gender lest it distract her male cohorts.

Beatrice Stonebanks takes a different tack. A sales consultant for 25 years now, and a member of the San Francisco BDSM scene for 16, she strode into a partners' meeting at her job in 2010 and wrote two words on the dry erase board for all to see. They were: corporate dominatrix.
