The purpose of the Lodge of Athenor is power exchange on a group level utilizing education, ritual and formality. Understanding the power of BDSM within a D/s relationship is our goal. We have formed a group within which we can do so safely and with trust in one another. Practicing D/s on a group level, pursuing an education for ourselves, and seeking to educate others is the means to this goal. The formality of our rituals and protocol gives order to all of this.
