LOUISVILLE – This past weekend was the Louisville Munch gatherings in Louisville.
It was a busy weekend.
On Friday we went to a wedding of a couple of lifestyle friends.
My most interesting conversation was with the mother of the groom.
She asked us which of the two we knew and I said that we knew them both, though we had known the groom for longer than the bride, three or four years.
His mother was very nice, and said, “Oh, do you know him from the life… What is it you call it?”
I said, “Lifestyle?”
She said, “Yes, the lifestyle, is that where you know him?”
I agreed that it was and then said, “I have, in fact, a couple of times shaken my finger at him,” and demonstrated. “Well, actually, it was more like this,” and raised my gaze about a foot, because the groom is 6’4″ at least, tall and skinny, and had a freshly dyed purple Mohawk for the wedding, which makes him closer to 6’8″.
He often wears a pair of platform boots, though not at the wedding, that add at least another 4″ to 6″ to his height.
Anyway, his mother told me she was sure he deserved it – he did – and that I should feel free to continue.
After the wedding, we were off to the Friday munch.
Then on Saturday we had the Saturday munch.
One thing that’s really amazing is the amount of things available in Louisville.
There are three munches a month, the first Friday, first Saturday and fourth Sunday. The Saturday munch has been running continuously for 15 years, without a single cancellation or missed monthly gathering.
There is a group for those 18 to 35 that meets monthly.
There is a special interest discussion group with separate discussions for submissives, dominants and switches, and combined discussion after.
There is a coffee gathering every week.
There is a kinky book club that meets monthly.
There is a chapter of Masters And slaves Together that meets monthly.
There is a group for people interested in pet play, like puppy or pony, that meets monthly.
There is a Club FEM group here, Females Enslaving Males, that meets monthly.
There is another new group that’s just forming and will have, I believe, monthly meetings.
There are occasional special things, like our upcoming Fringe Elements party, the Bizarre Bazaar, on November 30, or my own Bluegrass Leather Pride contest, March 2.
There are bar events, too, usually every month or two.
It’s really fairly amazing, isn’t it? And I may have missed a group, if so, please forgive me, I think you might be able to see WHY I forgot a group.
People who live in Louisville or visit are really in an enviable position in the kink community. We have so much available to us.
You would be hard-pressed, I think, to attend every event that’s available to you here.
I think it works out to about 15 gatherings a month – sometimes there are meetings scheduled for Saturday or Sunday afternoon AND Saturday or Sunday evening, too.
And we have really good tack shops, too.
