SM Resources on the Internet
- Society of Janus - The website of this San Francisco-based SM organization features outstanding links and information for players of all experience levels. Highly recommended for new players looking to build a vocabulary, as well as kinksters who want to connect with a community.
- The Euilenspiegel Society - The oldest based leather organization in the US, this NYC-based organization hosts an informative site with great links and community resources for those on the East Coast.
- Good Vibrations The on-line home of my favorite, co-operatively owned erotic boutique. A fantastic place for on-line book and toy shopping.
- Toys in Babeland The on-line home of Seattle and New York´s premiere erotic boutique. Women owned and operated!
- Kink Aware Professionals A fantastic site for finding a kink friendly psychotherapist, social worker, pastor, doctor, chiropractor, acupuncturist, massage therapist, lawyer, accountant or computer professional! Features international listings.
These are the women who use Maison de la Maîtresse. I enjoy playing with all of them, and highly recommend them as individuals.
In New York City, I can't speak highly enough about the whip-smart, beautiful, and talented Mistress Troy Orleans. Her studio is my favorite place to play in the City.
I also recommend the Eros Guide for links to BDSM providers around the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada.
