We want to build a safe space where all kinky and curious people can comfortably interact with each other while being sober, hence the Brighton Drug-free Sober Munch (BDSM)!
Everyone is welcome; you don’t have to live a sober lifestyle to attend (not all the organisers do, for a start). That said, please do not arrive intoxicated and do not bring or take any substances during this event.
While this event and venue are safe, sober spaces to discuss kink openly with like-minded individuals, this munch is not a play munch. Please do not engage in play during the event.
You’re welcome to join us anytime between 6-10pm.
The organisers will each be wearing a reflective band so you can identify us. Feel free to approach us anytime during the event with questions, concerns, or just to be introduced.
We reserve the right to ask people to leave at any time if they violate the safety of the space, venue, community or any individual.
This event is inclusive, and as such we have a zero-tolerance policy for abusive or derogatory behaviour toward anyone attending.
If this is your first time coming to a munch, feel free to show up and start mingling – we’ll be delighted to see you there. You are also welcome to message us in advance; we will be happy to help you feel welcomed and can introduce you to people when you arrive. If you’re a little unsure of what a munch is, or if it is for you, then check out this helpful article.
Please do not hesitate to contact us at BrightonDSMunch@gmail.com with any questions/suggestions/feedback! It would be fantastic if you fill out our feedback form so that we can improve future sober munches.
The BDSMunch is NOT a support group. We are not professionals in supporting those in recovery. If you need support, please check the LGBT Switchboard Directory.
Join the munch group to hear about upcoming events and interact with fellow munchers.
Please make sure you wear a mask, unless you are exempt or are unable to.
Please take a covid test and do not come along if you have any viral symptoms. It’s important we consider how to protect one another, especially the most vulnerable among us, including those who are multiply marginalised.
Masks and tests are available inside The Queery to use for free. If you cannot find any, please ask a volunteer.
Thank you for doing your part to help protect your community!
