Munch

A munch is the name for a social gathering of people who are interested in fetish and BDSM activities.

These gatherings are organised informally by region and will often be free to attend.

Munches are not like fetish clubs, in that play will not tend to take place at them and they are often held in vanilla venues, usually at a restaurant or bar.

When available, munches often use a private room. In the UK, the venue is usually a pub, and people are free to arrive and leave within the specified hours. The primary purpose is socializing, though some munches also have announcements from local organizations. Munches often help those who are curious about the lifestyle meet others who may be able to help them become more comfortable and better informed. Munches can also be a place to get advice about or pass on anecdotes about BDSM experiences.

Unlike a play party, most munches are casual affairs that exclude fetish attire or BDSM play, though a rare few include covert Master/slave interactions or other play. Some munches may have a specific focus, such as spirituality or whips. Others may be restricted to a specific group, such as women or submissives.
