New to kink?
For some, jumping into kink is easy. But for a many of us, it can be scary to explore the kink aspects of our lives.
The Society of Janus has been helping people explore kink for more than 40 years and we remain committed to providing a safe, structured, and comfortable way for people to learn more about BDSM.
We have two officers dedicated to helping newcomers enter the kink world and find their way: the Mentoring Director, with their Mentoring program, and the Welcoming Director, through the Welcoming program.
Under the Welcoming program, we provide several special events and programs just for those entering the world of kink:
If you're new to the kink community (1 year or less) or new to the San Francisco Bay Area, feel free to contact us or come by a Newcomers-Only Crash Course in San Francisco or on the Peninsula (see our listing of events for upcoming dates). It can be intimidating in the beginning. The Society of Janus is here to help welcome you to kink!
