Howdy kinksters - We have a lot of fun things coming up this weekend! If you're in the SF Bay Area, we have a very special half-day sensual service intensive with traveling instructor Lady V. I'll be there. Will you? It's come to our attention that it's Masturbation May, and we are here to help!

Many of you have already seen that we're fundraising in an outrageous attempt to retire the next big chunk of our cafe debt and get beyond our periodic budget panics. (Some of you may not have seen it yet; you can find my first email here.) As of this morning, I have two updates! For the first: we're past the $12k mark, which is phenomenal. For the second: our attorney isn't sure about pulling off a $9k offer to get this huge chunk settled, but thinks they might be able to get an agreement...

Many of you have already seen that we're fundraising in an outrageous attempt to retire the next big chunk of our cafe debt and get beyond our periodic budget panics. (Some of you may not have seen it yet; you can find my first email here.) We're approaching the two-thirds mark on our immediate goal. I cannot overstate what a difference that makes to Wicked Grounds' ability to focus on the long term. I'd love to push beyond that and try to get this whole mess sorted. It would be phenomenal to...

I cannot overstate what a difference that makes to Wicked Grounds' ability to focus on the long term. If you'd like to take a moment to be part of...

Hi, I'm Mir and I'm the owner of Wicked Grounds. Some of you know that we've gone through an enormous saga trying to pull our way back out of debt incurred from keeping our old cafe & boutique open much longer than we should have post-pandemic. In the process, we incurred well over $80k in gnarly high-interest debt. Cut to the chase; take me to the fundraising. In late June 2023, we pivoted to lean into our role as a leader in kink education. We offer dozens of classes, playshops, and...

Mondays. Am I right? Maybe you're having drop today. Or maybe it's just the blahs of facing a desk after a relaxing and fun weekend. Mondays make a mess of us. But I have some good news from the realm of happiness research. Your brain produces the neurotransmitter dopamine. It's a "reward center" for many body functions, including motivation, mood, and attention. What's the good news about dopamine? When we do something pleasurable, our brain releases it. But it also releases when you plan...
