Desert Kinksters Monthly Potluck Munch, 7:00 pm

We're going to start the year off with a discussion of the nature of kink and topics associated with it, like trust, power, and vulnerability led by Drew Kramer. This will include an activity to help you to think about your relation to these topics and how they might fit into your life. We encourage people to bring a curious, or inexperienced friend, who might want to learn more about kink.

The presenter will be Drew Kramer. Drew is former Vice President of Palm Springs Leather Order of the Desert and a member of Desert Fetish Authority. He’s been enjoying BDSM as a Top and a bottom since Ronald Reagan was in the White House.

Desert Kinksters (DK) is a grassroots group of kinky people living in the desert and surrounding communities. Our mission is to provide a safe space for BDSM exploration and community development by offering monthly potluck Munches and a variety of educational opportunities. A Munch is a non-play time for kinksters to meet, socialize and share food. It’s also a wonderful opportunity for old timers to mentor newbies. After each Munch, we then offer demonstrations of safe, sane, consensual and fun forms of BDSM play. We are pansexual – our group includes every gender, orientation, and experience level from beginners to lifestylers. So put on your fetish gear, bring a fabulous dish, and join us for the DK monthly potluck and demo.
