About us…

Why are we all here then?

Well, in 2004, there was only one munch in Central London, and a mere three around the very outer suburbs of London, that involved an hour or two of travel at least to get there.

Secretly Vanilla and Lionheart both lived around Docklands at that time, and so travelled out of town frequently to attend munches, but after a day at work, who wants to spend an hour or so on a train to get to a munch?

So, we scouted around and started Docklands on 14/02/2005. Hey, it is always good to have something on your doorstep!

What is a munch?

Munches are non-play informal events that help bring the local fetish community together. They are designed as places that you can branch out, meet your local community members, make good friends and generally have a good time with some like-minded kinksters.

The first “Munch” was held in San Francisco Bay Area, America around April 1993. The term “Munch” is short for “Burgermunch”, since STella’s original Meeting arrangement was called “Palo Alto Burgermunch” and was in Kirk’s burger bar in the evening.

When Munches came to the UK, we transplanted the concept to meeting in pubs over a beer! So I suppose, technically speaking, the UK mostly has “Slurps”!

However, at any Munch you attend, you will find sparkling kinky company and exciting repartee to make up for the lack of grub.
