New: Desert Kinksters Munch

Our friends at the Desert Center for Sexuality Awareness have asked us to share that they have started hosting a new pansexual Desert Kinksters Munch on the first Friday of every month from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm.The next one is next Friday, October 4.

A munch is a kink social event that is not for cruising, hooking up, or playing. Rather it is an opportunity to meet other kinksters in your area, network, make friends and connections. It's a place for kink-newbies to talk about their concerns and questions, and for old-timers to show up, answer questions, mentor, and have a good time.

This is a drop-in potluck for a pansexual crowd of kinksters: every gender and every orientation is welcome. Dress however you want to (as long as it’s street legal), and come express your beautiful self. The Center provides paper plates, utensils, beverages. RSVPs are appreciated.
