BESS Education Meetings are generally held the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month, starting at 7:30 pm. They cover a wide range of topics related to BDSM, from play techniques to lifestyle issues and more. Prior to each meeting, an orientation for those new to BDSM or new to BESS begins at 7:10 pm. These meetings occur at the Baltimore Playhouse and are open to all who wish to attend; there is a small fee for each educational meeting.

BESS occasionally holds Socials and they are a chance to party. They are lively play parties with fetishwear, food, and fantastic opportunities to play! Socials are open to all BESS contributors, reciprocal group members, and their guests. RSVPs are required and there is a fee for attending.

Special Interest Groups, known as SIGs, are groups with distinctive areas of interest, such as the Power Exchange SIG, the submissives/slaves SIG and the POC SIG. Each SIG holds its own meetings, generally once a month.
