CIPEX FAVORITE BARS
Our primary goal is to promote ethical values and knowledge in the
local BDSM community, through educational programs and by the general
exchange of information.
Our secondary goal is to provide a forum where people interested in BDSM
may associate with one another and form friendships with BDSM as a
DADG was started by Lady Nemesis; originally called DMAD or Des
Moines Area Deviants. She started the group in answer to the lack of
munch groups local to the Des Moines area. A list serve was set up for
DMAD and the group would meet at restaurants to chat and spend time with
like-minded folks. The group grew quickly and Lady Nemesis felt the
group needed more direction with people in charge who would lead the
group with more focus; around 1998-1999 she stepped down and took a
break from the group. During that time the group underwent a name
change and became DADG and had a three-person board. Since then
the group has grown further, created a larger board, and focused on
providing education and fellowship for the local BDSM community.
Recently the board and the group of people from the DADG list that meet
for munches, play parties, and other activities has become a NON-Profit
Organization and adopted a new name, CIPEX,
which stands for Central Iowa Power Exchange. The DADG list and
membership is still active and will continue to provide information to
the local BDSM community.
