Welcome to the Shelter Basement

The Shelter Basement is the oldest user supported BDSM chat room in Cyber Space.

This room first created in August 1995 and opened to the general public in September 1995. Since its beginning, this chat room, as with the rest of State of Submission, is operated completely due to the support of the people who use the facility.

There is no corporate sponsorship.
