Collarspace.com - Welcome
Welcome to Collarspace
Collarspace is an online community comprised of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual, and heterosexual persons all of whom share an interest in activities collectively referred to as BDSM.
While you're here we'd like to take a moment to mention two central concepts in BDSM:
SSC - Safe, Sane, and Consensual
SSC is a cornerstone principle of BDSM and it stands for Safe, Sane, and Consensual. When a person makes the choice to engage in BDSM activities with another person at the helm they're putting trust in that person just as one does when choosing to be a passenger in a car whilst another person is driving. In both cases the person behind the wheel has a responsibility to keep the other person safe. That's what SSC is all about.
Tolerance
Members of the BDSM community hail from many different cultures and backgrounds, each adding their unique perspective on what that word means to them. Your path may lie in a different direction than another person but wherever your travels take you we ask that you be tolerant of other members of the community.
First Steps As you're getting your bearings on Collarspace here are some steps which we recommend you consider:
Create an Account
Collarspace operates a little differently from some other websites in that you can have an account with or without a profile. Creating an account is simple, just click on the "Join our Community" button on the left-hand side of the website. Once created your account will allow you to interact with other users in the chatrooms, post on the Collarchat discussion forums, and access all areas of the website. It's a step we encourage you to take.
Create a Profile
If you decide that you're ready to start getting to know other members of the BDSM community, nearby and around the world, that's the time to create a profile. You can put as much or as little information about yourself in your profile as you'd like. Along with your profile, your account will give you the opportunity to keep a journal of your BDSM explorations and experiences.
Discussion Forums
The Collarchat discussion forums are the public square of our community where you'll see people expressing themselves on a wide variety of topics. On Collarchat you'll find that the interests of people in the community, while inclusive of BDSM, extend to everything from politics to religion to nano-technology.
Chatrooms
Our chatrooms are the place where you can interact in real time with other members of the community. Regular users in chatrooms sometimes take a little time to get used to a new face so if you decide to go to the chatrooms, we recommend that you observe the conversation for your first few visits, be patient, and seek out assistance if you need help.
A few words about online safety
We provide information throughout the site to help you stay safe online. You'll also find important safety information on our Help page. We encourage you to take advantage of these resources.
See you out there!
Again, we welcome you to the site and hope that you enjoy your time with us.
