Sagacity Alternative Lifestyle Society
Founded in 1999...the longest-running registered, not-for-profit, alternative, fetish, kink, BDSM organization in British Columbia!
Sagacity is Evolving
We still play...we still have fun...and we still create and present events! We just do it in a more distinctive way...and on a smaller, more intimate scale.
To stay informed about what we are up to, be sure to subscribe to the Sagacity Mailing List (if you haven't already), check back here occasionally, and drop by the Sagacity FetLife Group when you're in the neighborhood!
You can find us and many other kinky and interesting people at the Community Munch, every second Monday at 7pm at the Tap House on Yates.
Recent events at the CBC have highlighted how BDSM affects the broader community. Ladyfish speaks out on radio about how we fit in.
The recent firing of CBC personality Jian Ghomeshi has brought intense scrutiny of our lifestyle to the media. We do play on the fringes, but most of us, as Ghomeshi claims "do nothing wrong" when we play our somewhat extreme games with consenting partners. Many of us pursue vanilla lives without ever having our two sides clash.
When this kind of conflict between employer and BDSM practitioner comes to light, it's an opportunity to speak out for those of us who want ensure acceptance of our choice of lifestyles. It is important that we take sides in this debate, and present and support what we believe in: negotiation, consent, and the freedom to do what we enjoy without doing harm.
Ladyfish has been asked for a number of radio interviews in the last two days, and has presented us in the best light possible. Please speak out yourselves on this issue with your friends in our community and outside. We do not take sides in this without knowing all the facts. It is, however, important that people understand that we are a large and growing community that will not stand by and see one of its own unfairly targeted. Let's at least expect that we be held innocent until charged and convicted, that that conviction is not obtained in the court of media opinion.
What's Going ON?
