Welcome to the Resources page.

With the current ease of finding things on the web, the need for Janus to maintain a list of national and regional Clubs, groups and e-groups, general BDSM history, SM humor and the like has been greatly reduced.

We suggest you use the search engine of your choice to find BDSM resources in your area of interest.

But, there are a number of groups that SOJ as an organization supports in the form of membership, some local resources and some national organizations which can be of value to members. See the list below.

SOJ supports

Organizations we support with membership and annual contributions (as of May 2009)

As you notice above, the majority of the resources are not-for-profit organizations that often provide education and support for those involved in alternative sexualities.

If you have a group that you think should be listed, please use the contact form and write to the Liaison Director.

We will be adding to this page as time and resources allow.
