MAsT is an International organization with local chapters that provide support to those in, and those interested in, the M/s lifestyle through Frank Discussion and Social Opportunities.
The focus of the meetings is on The M/s relationship in everyday life, not SM skills/techniques/play or sex, although those may certainly be facets of some member's lifestyles.
We are a pan-sexual Chapter of MAsT: International serving the Central New Jersey area. We welcome anyone of legal age, with an interest in the nature of M/s Dynamics and/or Relationships.
Our doors are open to adults, whether in a relationship or single, without regard to gender or sexual orientation.
* We meet the second Saturday of each
month from 2 - 5 PM
* Every 3 months we host fun pot-luck style dinners
***There is time set aside at each meeting
We are organized and operate exclusively as a non-profit organization for educational purposes under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
(From MAsT: International)
MAsT believes that power exchange relationships can be a valid path to authenticity, self-actualization, and happiness.
MAsT is open to all adults interested in consensual power exchange relationships.
MAsT welcomes people of every sexual and gender identity, race and ethnicity, body type, socioeconomic status, physical capability, and religion or spiritual practice (including those with no spiritual beliefs).
MAsT's respect for inclusivity and diversity does not preclude each MAsT chapter from assembling according to the desires of the chapter director, and from determining the criteria for membership or participation in that chapter.
MAsT encourages the healthy development and support of power exchange relationships through the sharing of knowledge, experiences, perspectives and ideas among its members.
MAsT believes that the individuals who enter into a power exchange relationship do so as equals and that, as with other types of personal relationships, power exchange participants have an obligation to support the well-being of the relationship and that of those with whom they’ve engaged in such relationships.
MAsT believes that every individual who engages in a power exchange relationship has a primary obligation to their own well-being and is therefore responsible for taking appropriate action if such relationship becomes detrimental to their sense of well-being or is otherwise no longer personally satisfying.
MAsT believes that the protocols created by those in a power exchange relationship apply only to the individuals engaged in that relationship. The individuals in the relationship do not have the right to impose their protocols onto others, and those who are not a part of that relationship have neither the right nor the obligation to participate in such protocols when interacting with the individuals in the relationship.
