JaSMinBerlin meets once a month to talk, experiment, play … or watch.
Most evenings we have a specific topic: either in the form of a theoretical exchange or with the opportunity for practical try-out. You can find our future topics on the left side of this page.
The Berlin get-together JaSMinBerlin has existed for many years in different locations. JaSMinBerlin exists through the people who come to it and who contribute to it. We are an open group for women, lesbians, trans and intersexual people, new members are always welcome..
|Who:||Invited are all women, lesbians, trans and intersexual people.
Cis men (people who were assigned male at birth, feel like they are a man and live in a male gender role) are not invited.
|When:||1th Wednesday of the month
doors open from 7 p.m.
topic begins at 8 p.m.
Mehringdamm 51 (4. Yard), 10961 Berlin-Kreuzberg (U Mehringdamm)
Meeting point is in the bar area, the whole location is exclusively reserved as play-space for women, lesbians, trans and intersexual people. The bar and play areas are non-smoking areas, there is a separate smoking room. No dress code.
Language and communication
Usually the evening’s topic will be covered in German. However, if there is a need for it, we will conduct the evening bi-lingual. From our experience there is always someone who will translate (into English). We make a special effort to communicate in a calm and respectful manner in order to create an atmosphere of esteem. Everyone should have the chance not only to listen and understand but also to speak, to ask and to share experiences.
As you like it
What’s special about our get-togethers are the varied possibilities how to spend the evening. It’s not necessary to be particularily interested in the topic of the evening, it’s also possible to chat privately at the bar or in the smoking room or to find a space for a play in the play area even if there’s a practical topic at the same time.
On the topics
Please note that the topics up for discussion and/or the people who present a topic may change, also on short notice. In that case, for instance if a presenter is ill, we cannot promise that we find replacement and/or that we publish this on the website or on SchMacht or that we manage to send out an e-mail in time. In any case the meeting will take place; if necessary those who attend decide spontaneously how to spend the time together and what inspiration the wonderful Quälgeist location can bring.
JaSMinBerlin mailing list
Because of the subject matter we find it very important to safeguard privacy and be discreet—in personal contact as well as online. Therefore we only add those to our mailing list who have introduced themselves at one of our get-togethers. This is for data protection reasons for the safety of everyone and this will ultimately be in your interest, too.
The lesbian-queer BDSM scene desires not only sensual encounters but advocates responsible interaction. In order to ensure this, we have discussed “play rules” and established a code of conduct. The current play party agreement is consensus at JaSMinBerlin, as well as at the Easter conference and many other events, please check: SchMacht Playparty-Agreement
Other locations and events in Berlin
Aside from JaSMinBerlin and the Internet there are plenty of other locations and events in Berlin.
Many of us are regular guests at queer play parties, for example at Quälgeist.
There is also the annual Easter conference in Berlin as a non-profit event organised by and for the BDSM-lesbian community: workshops and exchange of information on kinky themes, play parties, sensually shaping the days and nights around Easter together.
The new website for the Easter Conference 2016 is online and you can ask questions about the Conference to this mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
SchMacht is an an independent, non-commercial internet network for BDSM dykes and everyone who is connected to the lesbian BDSM community.

„Collected experience and tradition“
During all the years of JaSMinBerlin regulars have developped a common understanding of many things. We have recently(03_2014) written down the most important points and from now an want to check around every one and a half years if these “traditions” are still valid and up to date.
