What we're about

We are a friendly and outgoing social group for those in and around the Athens, Georgia area who are a bit more adventurous, those new to exploring new aspects of their sexuality, and those who feel they might fit into the Alternative Lifestyle category. This primarily means the BDSM, Poly, generally kinky lifestyles, we are LGBT friendly, and open, accepting, and welcoming to just about all other lifestyles. But most importantly, we are not a hookup group.

We host regular munches, semi-private and private events to meet other like-minded people, make new friends and unwind in a safe, social atmosphere. We have been active on another site since mid-2014 with many members and recently chose to expand our group by joining MeetUp.com.

Events range from evening happy hours, afternoon lunch meet ups and weekend get together, movie nights, themed parties, to full dress and play events. In order to attend private parties and events, we need to get to know you at happy hours and munches. These often are not posted on MeetUp. While people have met and started relationships, this is not a “hook up” group, please do not use it as such. Please make sure you abide by the rules below. If you have any question, feel free to contact group leaders on here. Rule 1. Discretion is a must.

Rule 2. DISCRETION IS A MUST! Remember that you are in public and that each place will be different, so use your best judgement when conversing on lifestyle topics.

Rule 3. Respect - Respect must be given at all times within the group as well as in person.

Rule 4. Attire and behavior - Unless specified in an invitation street clothes are requested and vanilla behavior is expected! Again, each venue may be different so use your best judgement.

Rule 5. Have fun... and enjoy yourselves, safely!
