This month, we’re trying something different: Godless Perverts is having a game night! As regular attendees of the Godless Perverts Social Club may have noticed, Wicked Grounds (San Francisco’s legendary kink cafe) has a huge stash of games including chess and checkers, Cards Against Humanity, Scrabble, Fluxx, Gloom, Slash, and much, much more. Feel free to bring your own games if you’re not sure that Wicked Grounds has a copy of your favorite.
(Note: If you decide to play Cards Against Humanity, please be cautious; it can be a really hard game between people who don’t know each other and aren’t familiar with each others’ limits and triggers.)
We meet at Wicked Grounds, 289 8th Street in San Francisco (at Folsom, near Civic Center BART), 7-9pm. It’s free, although we ask that you buy food and/or drink at the cafe if you can. All orientations, genders, and kinks (or lack thereof) are welcome. Community is one of the reasons we started Godless Perverts. There are few enough places to land when you decide that you’re an atheist; far fewer if you’re also LGBT, queer, kinky, poly, trans, or are just interested in sexuality. And the sex-positive/ alt-sex/ whatever- you- want- to- call- it community isn’t always the most welcoming place for non-believers. So please join us! We meet in San Francisco at Wicked Grounds on the first Tuesday of every month: we also meet on the third Thursday of every month in Oakland, at Telegraph Beer Garden.
Godless Perverts presents and promotes a positive view of sexuality without religion, by and for sex-positive atheists, agnostics, humanists, and other non-believers, through performance events, panel discussions, social gatherings, media productions, and other appropriate outlets. Our events and media productions present depictions, explorations, and celebrations of godless sexualities — including positive, traumatic, and complex experiences — focusing on the intersections of sexuality with atheism, materialism, skepticism, and science, as well as critical, questioning, mocking, or blasphemous views of sex and religion.
Godless Perverts is committed to feminism, diversity, inclusivity, and social justice. We seek to create safe and welcoming environments for all non-believers and believing allies who are respectful of the mission, and are committed to taking positive action to achieve this. Hope to see you there!
