We’ve written before about how we live a certain lifestyle and it’s not always easy meeting other people who are like minded. I mean you can’t just walk up to someone at church and be like “Hey, are you a kinky fucker, too?” Though that would be kind of funny, it would also be totally inappropriate in that situation. It’s not like people walk around wearing at T-shirt advertising their style of kink like they would their favorite sports team. Being kinky or living an alternative lifestyle, such as having an open Relationship or enjoying others together in your relationship isn’t something you can generally bring up in just any conversation.
So… How CAN you find other people who are into something not so mainstream? There are a few different ways to do this. Recently, cagedmonkey and I were introduced to a website called SwingTowns.com and it’s definitely a place where you can meet real, local people in your area for free, who are into kink and other fetish-type things. It seems like such a wonderful place for kinksters. If you are a Mistress or Master seeking a slave or vice versa, this is the place for you. Their Fetish community is full of open-minded singles, couples and groups. You’ll find men and women looking for erotic BDSM, bondage and fetish play (in addition to the submissive and Domme roles). Not only is it a site to meet other kinky fuckers, they also have a great blog with awesome information-filled articles. The articles cover so many different subjects and if you check it out you’ll notice some pretty popular bloggers who contribute. (Wink, wink) Now, there is always Fetlife, or collarspace, or even the BDSM reddits but one of the best ways is to just get out there and met people at your local munch.
Just today, I was asked how we get so lucky meeting all these new kinky friends and play partners. Really, we aren’t lucky! We’ve just gone to munches and met people, in real life, who we can talk about the everyday stuff with or have over hanging out on the back patio while teaching a newbie how to use a paddle the correct way. Sometimes it takes breaking out of that comfort zone and just facing your fears… What are you afraid anyway?
