- Fourth Fridays are "monthly happy hours for those who are interested in the D/s lifestyle." An April 1999 posting to soc.subculture.bondage-bdsm reads that "It's a social event. No play, no fetish wear, no need to worry if you are new to the scene. As a matter of fact, lots of newcomers will be there ... so come and meet a new friend. Representatives of the local play organizations will be there, too. You can meet them, ask questions and find out about the 'local scene.'" It takes place in a family restaurant and fetish wear (including corsets) is not permitted.

- TSD is an American collective, organized for the artistic demonstration of body suspensions and to disseminate any information pertaining to such. Often referred to as a performance art group, our public and private demonstrations consist of temporary and sometimes dangerous deformation of the human form. Though often shocking these shows are in no way designed to promote ourselves as freaks nor as religious zealots.
