Masters And slaves Together International (MAsT) is an association of adults interested or engaging in personal relationships that are based upon the conscious exchange of power and/or authority. MAsT Portland (formerly known as MAsT Pacific Northwest) serves the Portland, Oregon metropolitan area, including Southwest Washington.
MAsT provides social, educational, support, and community advocacy opportunities for its members and fosters the beneficial exchange of lifestyle knowledge and experience.
Meetings are the third Sunday of the month.
Dress Code: Street attire please.
MAsT might be for you if:
- Your life is guided by M/s, D/s, O/p, or other forms of consensual power exchange;
- Power exchange dynamics are the filters in your decision-making life processes;
- You voluntarily express your lifestyle / lovestyle with power exchange;
- You are interested in life-long learning with different people;
- You hope to cultivate an existing or future power exchange relationship; or
- You are curious about the M/s, D/s, O/p, or other power exchange lifestyles; and would like to learn more.
MAsT is different from other local BDSM / kink groups; in that our focus is solely on power exchange topics and relationships. Discussions primarily focus upon power exchange relationship dynamics. Discussions are enriched by participants’ diverse lived experiences of culture, privilege, oppression, relationship type, experience, age, sex, identity, orientation, and much more.
MAsT meetings are not a play party, munch, nor a meat market to seek short-term partnership. How power exchange might be embodied through sexual behaviors (play) is secondary to MAsT Portland’s discussion focus. This is a space to connect with and support community, create friendships, and mentor individuals / existing partnership. Please be respectful of these intentions and all participants.
If you have a topic you want to discuss, please message us or comment in the monthly event thread, so others can consider it thoughtfully.
