Munches, or get-togethers at restaurants or other locales involving food and drink, are a big
part of socializing amongst BDSM afficionados in Southern California. Fetish wear and any sort of SM gear
are not usually permitted, and the atmosphere is relaxed and informal. Unlike parties, munches are meant to provide
a casual atmosphere for socializing apart from play. NOTE: All munches listed are monthly
unless otherwise noted.
As far as I know, there are no munches scheduled on Mondays at this time.
The SoCA Sanctuary Email List hosts a potluck munch with a moderated discussion group on the first Sunday at 11 AM.
This event is restricted to submissives and switches in submissive mode only. The SoCA Sanctuary Munch is located in the Long Beach area. The group also has a list on egroups.
Note: If you don't know much about body modification (i.e., body piercing,
tattooing, corseting, etc,) please make sure to visit the General Resources page
for specific information about them as safety and quality are paramount concerns, especially in these areas.
