The Kink-Collective is a leather family. We are an ever-expanding group of people who are connected as a family by choice. What binds us together is the belief in and practice of the philosophy of People Before Kink.
WE exist to carry the philosophy of People Before Kink to the community at large and to embody this principle in order to promote personal growth and responsibility in ourselves and others.
People Before Kink is the simple belief that who we are should always come before what we do, particularly as it relates to the BDSM/kink/fetish lifestyle. We practice getting to know each other as people and caring for one another on a deep level BEFORE we engage with each other as players. We believe that achieving and maintaining these kinds of relationships require effort and dedication and as a group we are all committed to this kind of work, with ourselves and each other.
WE believe in the importance of trust, communication, loyalty, and respect. The energy is always growing at the Kink-Collective events. The bonds tighter, the family larger & the community bigger. We seek to make an imprint on every guest that attends, not just for the evening, but throughout their whole fetish journey.
Based on our philosophy of People Before Kink, all the Kink collective events start with a 45 minute social period. This time allows us to connect with those around us and gives us time to connect with others as PEOPLE FIRST, not facilitators. We believe if you know the people around you, your inhibitions will lower and your curiosities rise. The chances of experiencing those deeper connections multiplies, and connections happen.
Who is the Kink-Collective meant for?
The Kink Collective welcomes all who seek meaningful connection, open communication, and continuous learning. We are a community based on inclusivity and personal responsibly. We engage and support one another on our journeys through kink and fetish, as well as gender, sexual orientation and all the other areas of our lives.
The Kink Collective is also an all-inclusive space for those who feel homeless and disconnected from the community. We embrace those who are looking for more than instant gratification and transactional play, those who seek more authenticity and genuine connection in their relationships with others.
The Kink Collective is for anyone in this community, or interested in becoming part of it.
Are you in a polycule? The Kink Collective is for you. Are you a nonbinary transgendered person who is looking to be surrounded by understanding and acceptance? The Kink Collective is for you. Are you brand new and looking to dip your toes into the big world of BDSM? The Kink Collective is for you. Are you a seasoned Daddy or Mommy looking for a supportive environment in which to play? The Kink Collective is for you.
If you seek to connect, share, socialize and play with conscious intent, to forge deeper intimacy and meaningful bonds with others who are on a personal journey of discovery, then the Kink Collective is here for you.

Adult Play, Harm Reduction and Psychological Health Despite the prejudices of some, an authoritative Psychology Today article explained that “BDSM may serve as both a healing and harm reduction approach to trauma and emotional pain.” The article states that BDSM is not pathological, but it “can also be used in a therapeutic sense, both in trauma healing and for some, as a harm reduction approach.” Membership in the Kink-Collective assures that all bdsm activities will be refereed and conducted under safe conditions between fully consenting adults. Further, a 2015 article in The Atlantic reports a “dramatic improvement in mental health” from consensual bdsm activities. The article describes how bdsm activates “repressed emotions in order to process them in a safe and supportive environment.” It continues: “A study from the Netherlands found a greater prevalence of positive psychological traits in BDSM practitioners than in the general public. The practitioners were less neurotic, more extraverted, more open to new experiences, more conscientious, less rejection sensitive, and had higher subjective well-being.” Changing lives one spanK at a time!

While this is the standard at most events, I find it’s important to remind people of the rules when attending an event of ours. We do it as a clear reminder to al6l in attendance so there aren't any "Oh, I didn't know" instances. It’s important we host an event drama free and with safety first in mind. If there are any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding our rules and regulations please feel free to inbox us. Your input is valuable to us.
