Weekly Meeting and a special announcement.

This week our meeting will focus on different forms of the Dominant and Submissive in Kink. Due to conflicts with night exams, I will be handing the reigns for the meeting over to our Vice President, Sam. This will be the 3rd of our broad, introductory topics. We will be lining up the rest of the meeting topics soon, so please bring any suggestions for topics or feedback you may have. 

In other news. Mary Khan, who you may have met at our last meeting, has asked me to pass this message along. 

" I want to hear from students that have any thoughts on my loose idea of expressing oneself sexually and mental health. I'm looking for personal stories, individual's general thoughts on the subject, and any relevant articles and research.

I want to make this work for you. I would love to meet face-to-face over coffee, but if you just want to shoot me some thoughts or send me some links through the webs, PLEASE DO SO.

I totally recognize I may have some assumptions rooted in my own perspective and experiences, but I try to suspend them and I want to hear from others to educate myself and broaden my view. PLEASE HELP ME!
*If, upon reading this, you think you have something for me, take a moment and contact me right now. Do it before you forget!* "

If anyone would like to share something with Mary, please contact her at her email address (khanmaa@iastate.edu).
