Lifestyles After Dark©


Lifestyles After Dark is an adults only body positivism no shaming safe zone.  BDSM education pieces, original erotic pieces, mental health awareness.​​

Mission Statement
To bring life out of the closet and to encourage free and open conversation between people.  
To tackle hard to talk about topics, some of which are considered taboo by a vocal minority.  
To bring politics, religion, sex, drugs, and rock & roll to the table for hard discussions.
To break the social walls that still prevent so many people from talking about what interests and frightens them. 


Company Information:
Lifestyles After Dark
© (LAD©) was initially an offshoot of the mixed media discussion group, Comic Book Illuminati (CBI), and was known until recently as CBI After Dark.  The founder, Archie Spires, felt that while movies and comics are fun, people needed more than bread and circuses:  
They need to be able to express who they want to be.
Archie Spires acts as head writer, editor, and meme generator.


Growth Highlights:
As a Mature Discussion group, LAD
©'s staff regularly interacts with in excess of 2,000 people daily, while its page content reaches upwards of 100,000 or more readers.  We regularly surpass larger pages with more content in terms of activity per capita on the basis that we cannot afford to undersell our readers, so we focus on quality over quantity.
All of this was achieved without spending a penny on advertising. We focus solely on quality over quantity, and unlike other populous groups we do not celebrate member counts, we celebrate people.


Our Products:
Empowerment and education.  At least once a week I am fortunate enough to receive feedback, either first or secondhand that the page and group have encouraged a person to be more inventive in their relationship, and most recently that it may have even saved a marriage.  
If I never make a penny doing this, I will still die richer than I could have ever dreamed.

Future Plans:
"I want to change the world.  I want to push everything into the light so it can be seen and judged fairly by humanity.  Too much is left to hearsay and second guesses.  I want to write and share and encourage people to read and learn.  I want to be called out and challenged on my own preconceptions.  I want to make the world better a person at a time."

-A. R. Spires, II
