Well, It’s been a long time coming, but we’re back to see out the rest of 2011 with a bang.
Our next gathering will be Monday November 7th at our brand new home
Level 2 / 267 Little Collins St. (CBD)
(Look for the lime green door.)
Since previous host venue 24 Moons shut its doors, we have been looking for a new home to host us, and the good people at Tony Starr’s
Kitten Club have kindly offered their premises to us. Fabulous food, full menu and cocktails, we are thrilled and honoured to have access to this wonderful new space. Sadly, this venue is not wheelchair accessible. We are still open to suggestions for a new home, so please send us your ideas for places that
- serve food and liquor
- have a space for us
- have stages, mics, projectors etc.
- are wheelchair accessible
- and in the CBD
As you may have been following, we are revamping PSM’s format starting with our November gathering. November brings you 2 special

Summer time start is now 6.30 pm for a 7.15 first presenter.
Melbourne performance artist Jessi Lewis joins us for a presentation like no other.
Exploring what it means to be only 22 and HIV positive, in a world where the death of face to face flirtation is imminent after the rise of Grindr, & what this new technology means for his generation while weaving this in through his own personal story of performance, gay beats, paying rent and moving to Melbourne at age 18.
Having performed Australia wide, Jessi is thrilled to bring us excerpts from his dance pieces, and engage in a Q & A with our audience at PSM.
Melbourne Rope Dojo
Our feedback has told us that you have all been VERY keen to know more about rope play and we have found you one of Australia’s best rope
instructors; Melbourne Rope Dojo!
The head instructor at the Melbourne Rope Dojo is Scott, one of the most experienced practitioners of Shibari outside of Japan. Scott started studying Shibari in 2004, which lead him to visit Japan starting in 2009 to continue his studies. He has been to Japan three times now to study under his Sensei, Osada Steve, and one of Osada Steve’s teachers, Yukimura Haruki-Sensei.
Whilst experienced in all aspects of Shibari, Scott has a particular love of newaza, or the intimate and connected tying typically performed on the floor. For Scott, the connection that can be achieved through rope is unique and forms the heart of Shibari. There is therefore an emphasis at the Dojo of learning how to obtain this connection.
Scott will be providing a demonstration of his work, along with a full suspension demonstration and a history of Shibari (Japanese
