Local Dungeons?

SydneyScreams SydneyScreams
Here in Orlando, we have a dungeon (The Woodshed) open for (semi) public play Thursday-Saturday nights. That holds classes, workshops, roundtables, photography nights, and more.

Do you have a dungeon in your city? Have you been?

I'm an active member at the Woodshed, though I don't go as often as I'd like to

I've never heard of a dungeon before... they sound like fun! I'm pretty sure we don't have one though. What are they, exactly?

I know of one in Chicago called the Leather Rose, I have wanted to go but I have never been able to.

We have 2 actually. We have been to one of them several times, but only to the other for demos, not play.. It just doesn't fit our vibe.

how do you find out about these things? If there was one near by would I know about it?

Sounds interesting! I'd like to see what it's like

I am not sure if we have one in the area. If we do, it might be interesting to check it out some day.

I second the question...

We have one relatively locally in my state. It's a two to three hour drive from where I'm at, and I've never been, but might go on my birthday or something this year.

I have never heard of one close to us.

FetLife is a popular social networking site for kink & BDSM. Most of the dungeons I've been to have groups on there

Dungeons tend to have equipment/furniture made for various types of BDSM play (cages, St Andrews cross, spanking benches, etc). They often provide a safe space for playing

I don't think there's one near here. I would probably check it out if there was.

To those who don't think such a thing exists in your area, i can almost guarantee that there is, in some form. There is almost certainly a venue or event for kinky play near you. I'd be surprised if there was an area that didn't have some BDSM presence, at least within a couple hours drive. They aren't always called "Dungeons" and are rarely advertised thusly. They are somewhat underground. Not illegal in any sense but kept under wraps a bit to keep it a safe space, to keep it safe from people who are unfriendly to kinksters or who might accidentally stumble into it not knowing what it is. They aren't something you'll see just walking down the street. There won't be a big sign that says "Kinky BDSM Dungeon". It's done this way to keep it safe for the people who want to use it and to keep it safe for people who don't want to see it. It wouldn't really do to have someone wander in not knowing what it was and freak out because they weren't expecting what is inside. It's done in such a way that people who attend are those who want to be there for the right reasons. Connect with your local kink community, Fetlife is a good resource. Find munches, workshops, classes, demos, socials, etc. Yes, these almost certainly exist reasonably close to your area, whether you know it or not. People who attend these events are usually friendly and welcoming and will almost certainly be happy to tell you how to find safe, local playspaces, dungeons, and parties. There may also be a local BDSM club in your area. Again, don't assume it doesn't exist because some form of a group almost certainly does, even if you don't know about it. We have a club here and they host play parties in a space that they rent a few times a month. A city about 2 hours away has at least 2 local dungeons and other parties. And there's literally hundreds of events a month within a couple hundred miles of my home. If you're within a few hours of a decent sized city, there's something kinky going on. If you're in the boonies hundreds and hundreds of miles from a city, BFE nowhere, it might be harder, but otherwise, it's there if you look.

I know the Woodshed it's not to far from me. I would love to go, but I'm a chicken and would never go alone and definitely a place I would NEVER take my service dog.

There isn't one around here, the play events are almost always at private residences. and other events like socials and munches are at restaurants and bars, but they don't have any kinky stuff going on

I personally world love to go to one but the closest one I've found is too far to drive unless I get the car for the whole weekend (which normally doesn't happen) not to mention my girlfriend would be highly against going since she's told me many times she will never get involved with local crowd meaning I'd have to go by myself anyway which is no fun

I go to The Woodshed as well, live about twenty-five minutes or so away. How funny!

We also have Pheonix Club and The Web in the Tampa area. I really enjoy dungeons, though The Woodshed has been a bad experience for me. Too much closed-minded behavior.
