The BDSM Munch

bdsm munch

This is a post for those who don’t know what a munch is, as well as those who do and would like to find one in their city or even start their own.

So what’s a munch? Sounds a bit kinky but it’s actually less kinky than most bdsm activites. It’s a social meeting for those in the bdsm community to get together in a casual, public setting and have open discussion and socialize with new and old friends. These prearranged gatherings usually take place in a restaurant and are a great way to meet people in the community, learn more if you are new or just curious, or  give and receive advice. Generally people will not be wearing fetish attire or engaging in BDSM play but this is not a fast rule. BDSM munches can vary widely and reflect the group that attends them.

The term comes from ‘burger munch’, after an early manifestation of munches in Palo Alto, California which took place at a burger restaurant. That was one of the originals which you can read more about on the munch wiki page which has some great information on the development of munches.

Want to find and attend a munch near you? The internet will help you! Simply do a google search, something like: Munch New York, or Munch Portland, or wherever you are. I had more success with this method than trying to find a resource that listed them all.

If you plan to find a munch near you and attend for the first time I suggest you check out the link below first..
