Monthly Social Events

Join us at one of our social Munches, or Meet and Greets so you can meet us and find out more.  APeX runs several monthly gatherings where all are welcome to stop by, say hello, grab a bite, and stay for some interesting conversation with like-minded people.  Check out Events to see our current offerings.  You will meet Tops, bottoms, Dominants, submissives, Masters, slaves, and switches. We vary in sex and age and come from all walks of life: teachers, secretaries, doctors, lawyers, business people, computer and technology people, social workers, etc.  You’re sure to find someone with similar interests (both in the vanilla world and in the lifestyle).

At each event, you’ll find one of APeX’s friendly hostesses or hosts to welcome you in and introduce you to others.  If you have specific interests, let us know; and we’ll try to introduce you to someone who shares them.  We also understand not everyone is ready to dive in and meet everyone in one fell swoop.  If you’d rather quietly observe until you feel more comfortable, you’re more than welcome to do so.

Become a Member

If you find you enjoy your time in APeX, we invite you to join us as a paid member.  Your membership helps support the classes, demos, and other events that APeX puts on throughout the year.  While membership is not required for our public social events, some of our play events and classes may be restricted only to current members.  APeX membership provides many benefits including discounts to APeX events, early RSVP opportunities, reciprocation benefits with several other groups, and discounts at several local and national BDSM & fetish retailers.  Once you have attended a couple of public gatherings you may request membership to APeX.

    I went to look at the membership page and it seems to not be active anymore. I was looking for the address to the Fandango. I’d also like to rsvp for The poly educational and will pay someone at the Fandago to attend if that works.

    Thanks in advance

      Greetings Kandyce:

      The Fandango information was sent to all members via email.

      Please clarify what you mean about the membership page. The members information should be accessible to all members.

      RSVP’s for the Raven Kaldera & Joshua Tenpenney educational event are not taken here. Please send an email to and you can pay any EC or BoD member to attend the 1/31/14 event. Please be advised that openings are filling up fast.
