Nah, never been. It sounds fun in theory, but the couples that my boyfriend and I have met who have been into BDSM are...well...they're sleazy. Period. I kind of don't want to be around them for extended periods of time. I know that there are lots of people into the lifestyle that are awesome (and a lot are here on EF) but going to an event/munch just doesn't appeal to us.

I have been going to events since I was 18... off and on here and there kind of a thing...

It's appealing but not. I'm incredibly awkward in social situations and generally I get anxious about being with large groups of people.

I've never been to one. I was invited to go, but I'm undecided for the time being.

I've gone to sex education workshops that focus on it, but never a club. Heard there's some good ones in SF, but I'm not quite sure what a "good" BDSM club in the city entails exactly.. besides old dudes beating off on your chest while you're tied up, because ASWEALLKNOW, that just comes with the territory.

I've been to a lot of educational BDSM activities - some of the programs put on by EduKink in SF are my favourite, as well as Society of Janus events that I've been to. I haven't been to a play party yet, but I plan to attend one at the Citadel before I move out of the Bay Area.

There isn't any events even close to this kind of thing in the rural area I'm living in, but once I get back to the city I'll be searching some out

I went to a fetlife munch without knowing it, a room mate at a convention took me along, but I didn't know anyone, so I just sat there. I'd love to get into a local group and start to make friends. My SO is very vanilla, but I'm working on it with him and I feel like groups would show him more of what I want.

I've been to only one, Folsom Street Fair in SF. Both my boyfriend and I highly enjoyed it. I wish they were held more often!

I would go, but I've never been. I live in a very conservative town 10+ months out of the year. I don't even know who'd be into it in my town. :/ I don't know if I'd want to go to one by myself. I think I have one friend who'd go because she's also into BDSM

I love it! I'm a natural born exhibitionist and I love to play in public, meet new people, and just be amongst like minded people for a while. It's really freeing.

Synthetik and I are actually planning on going to one in April.

You see, there was this BDSM event called Purgatory in Charlotte, about a 5hour drive from where we live, and when we started dating, we told ourselves that we would go to it someday.

Well, that year, they had their "Ragnarök" event and that was going to be their last one Synthetik and I proceeded to "has a sad"

Then, I checked on the Single Cell Productions website, hoping to see if the "Purgatory: The Making Of" Documentary had been made, when I saw that there was going to be a Purgatory Reunion coming up in April So, he and I are definitely counting on going to it

Folsom St. Fair's the only place I've ever seen someone get fisted on a public street.

Never been to one, although it could be fun to go. Don't know anyone else into the life style around here, so I wouldn't know where to start.

No, but I wouldn't say no.

I have but Alan hasn't. I'd love to go to one together but haven't found any in our area yet.

I attend events on the regular basis here where I live and participate in other communities as well. I enjoy it, for the most part, though real life often hinders me attending social events other than parties.

I've never been to one and don't think I'd like to go. I'm not really hardcore. I like a little pain, but not too much.

I think I'd be too shy to go and even if I did go I think I'd be really awkward and uncomfortable.

I am curious though. I hope one day I will feel comfortable to open up to that some more

I'd love to, but a small town in the deep south is not the place to find one

It's not all about the pain. There are plenty of people who enjoy sensual play and do that on the regular basis. Lots of sensuous massages, waxings, and other things happen outside of beatings. It's quite relaxing, actually

You don't have to be hardcore to go to a party. That's just based off of my experience.

You ...
At some parties, you can simply be a voyeur.

I'm a voyeur most of the time and it's cool. People love being watched. Hell, I know I do when I'm being played
