Members provide each other with various types of help, usually nonprofessional and nonmaterial, for a particular shared, usually burdensome, characteristic. Members with the same issues may come together to share coping strategies, advanced techniques, to seek peer advice, to feel more empowered through social support, and/or for a sense of community. The help may take the form of providing and evaluating relevant information, relating personal experiences, listening to and accepting others' experiences, providing sympathetic understanding and establishing social networks. Such a discussion group may also even also work to inform the public or engage in advocacy. '''Within the realm of [[BDSM]] some types of discussion groups are typical:''' *[[Rainbow Culture| LGBT]] *Survivors of [[Rape]]/Abuse *Groups for [[Power Exchange]] *Groups for [[D-types]] *Groups for [[s-types]] *Groups for [[Spiritualism]] *any other topic that might relate to BDSM that has a wide enough appeal to generate regular and meaningful discussion. Discussion groups held in real-time often have the same etiquette and [[protocols]] of a [[munch]]. Discussion groups for d-types and s-types are often held on the same nights/times in different locations so that both types may experience their respective groups at a time that is convenient for their partners as well. Many of these discussion groups will have a specific topic or topics of discussion to help direct conversation for a single meeting. [[Category:BDSM Events]] Return to Discussion Group.
