Sagacity History

When originally founded in October 2000, Sagacity was called the Submissive Sagacity Support Society and consisted of seven submissives getting together to share experiences. Over time, our membership has evolved to include Dom/mes, subs, slaves, tops, and bottoms, hence the name shortening to just plain "Sagacity" in January 2001. Sagacity has grown from eight nervous members into a successful, well-respected organization that has met and shaken hands with over 575 kinksters. Our website has welcomed and added over 800 members and it grows every day. In May 2005 Sagacity Alternative Lifestyle Society became a duly registered society in the province of British Columbia.

Sagacity is fortunate to have spawned several sister organizations, here and in the United States. We have an extensive network of kink-friendly people scattered all over Canada and the world that are always willing to provide info and/or help to Sagacity folks when they travel.
