Our group is an active one. CUFF was first formed in 1993, and our membership consists of hetero, gay, lesbian, bi, poly, and transgendered adults. Our goal is to provide a safe, comfortable, and discreet environment where one can meet other kinky-minded folk.

CUFF provides educational information on a variety of topics along with friendly support and a social network of men, women, not-sures, and in-betweens who share our interests in the context of informed consensual relationships. We are an organization which provides a forum for the many different expressions of power in love and play.

Whether you are newly discovering your kinky side or have been actively involved in the BDSM scene for years, you are welcome. If you are interested in bondage and discipline, dominance and submission, sadomasochism, spanking, cross-dressing, fetishism, bootblacking, needleplay, rope bondage/shibari or other forms of alternative sexual activity, then consider attending one of our many open-to-the-public events. You will find that CUFF is a great place to learn and a great place to have fun.

Attending Events

If you are curious as to what we are all about, feel free to visit us. You won't be put on the spot to introduce yourself, although you might be approached by members who will offer their greetings.

Please keep in mind that above all else, we respect your right to privacy. We realize that you might be nervous at your first meeting or munch. We are there if you want to talk with us. Typically there are about 15-20 people at a meeting and ten to twenty people at each munch. One of the obvious benefits of getting to know us is learning that you are not alone with your fantasies or "unusual" practices. You won't be judged and you will be accepted.

Lastly, we would like to make it clear that we are very much an "in-person" group, not an "online" one. While we do have an email list and a FetLife presence, these are primarily announcement tools. So if you're coming from the online world and have gotten the impression that we're not too chatty, that's because we're busy chatting face to face. Make the leap and come join us.

So, browse the web site, contact us if you have any questions, and we hope to see you soon!
