Munches
Here will try keep you posted on any regional munches coming up. To submit a date for your local munch, or special even please write to submission


What is a "Munch"?

It is a gathering where people meet to discuss the BDSM and D/s lifestyles. They are generally held in restauraunts which are moderately priced, and every attendee is responsible for paying for his/her own meals. The dress is usually casual, so please no fetish garb that may draw unusual attention to the group as a whole. A munch is NOT a "playparty" so please treat them as a way to meet people on a personal level and not as a place to meet your next Dom/sub. However, a munch is an excellent place to arrange a first time meeting for someone you have either met online or through a personal ad.

In general, they are a great place to meet like minded people in your local areas. And as always, play safe and enjoy!

Knot for Everyone is a newly formed BDSM group in the Central New Jersey area. Our first meeting was held November 8, 1997. The group will serve as both an educational and social vehicle for those in the area interested in BDSM (Bondage, Discipline,Domination, Submission, Masochism).

We are planning to meet once a month in the Union/Middlesex County area (we do not have a permanent location as of yet). Each meeting will have a brief lecture or demonstration on related issues (bondage, hotwax play, flogging, etc.) followed by time for socialization and play.

Atlanta GA

The best thing is to simply join the Atlanta BDSM newsletter pepnews@edtec.com. Put SUBSCRIBE on the subject line. It will immediately send you an up-to-the minute listing of the sights and sounds of the Atlanta Scene.



Vancouver Canada Munch

The location: Doll & Penny's Cafe - 1167 Davie, near the Shopper's Drug Mart (near Thurlow).

The dates: The first and third Wednesday of every month.

The times:  These are dinner munches (the restaurant has a $5 minimum order, and I do ask people to order something, they're kind enough to go out of their way to accomodate us).  They begin at 6:30pm, and end whenever the group breaks up (typically around 8-9 pm depending on who's there)..

What is this munch thing?  The munches held at Doll & Penny's are laid back social gatherings.  There will be no play and no demonstrations in the middle of the cafe.  We generally sit around and chat about the local scene, or really anything that comes to mind.  It's a great way to meet newcomers in the scene, or people who have been in the scene for a while and like meeting to chat in a relaxed atmosphere.

Contact dee@renaissoft.com for any further information.  Otherwise, see you there!
