Louisville Munch

The Louisville munches have been running continuously since October of 1997. We meet on the first Friday and first Saturday of every month, from 7pm to 10pm. We also gather on the fourth Sunday of every month, from 6pm to 9pm. Munches are social gatherings for those interested in BDSM. They are not play parties or singles clubs. There is no formal membership, and the only cost to attend is the cost of your own meal and the tip. They offer an opportunity to find others in the community who share your interests. Those who attend are male, female, dominant, submissive, switch, novice, experienced, single, partnered, married, straight, gay, bisexual, transgendered, queer, and everything in between.

Munch Buddies!

New to the Louisville BDSM Community? Shy about meeting people, have lots of questions you need answered, or just plain confused? Munch Buddies are established community members who volunteer their time to help new people get involved, who act as your own personal Welcome Wagon to answer questions, or to just be a familiar person you can sit with at your first munch or event. You will be assigned a Munch Buddy of similar age, sex, and power orientation as yourself (submissives get assigned submissive Munch Buddies, Dominants get Dominant Munch Buddies, etc.). We have many diverse people who are glad to help, so don't miss out on our vibrant and welcoming community any longer!
