COVID-19 Announcement – in-person events will be announced

Based on policy and recommendations of numerous state and federal health agencies as well as advice of medical professionals in the APeX community, the APeX Board of Directors had made the decision to suspend all in person events.
The BoD will now announce in-person APeX events individually based on an evaluation of COVID circumstances at that time and as conditions merit.
Sincerely,
The APeX Board of Directors

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’ll meet people from all walks of life and all kinds of interest in kink. You’re sure to find someone with similar interests (both in the vanilla world and in the lifestyle).

At each event, you’ll be greeted by APeX’s friendly hospitality and someone to welcome you in and introduce you to others.  If you have specific interests, let us know! We’ll try to introduce you to someone who shares them.  If you’re just curious about everything and anything, you’ll find that most people are delighted to talk about the kinks that interest them and might introduce you to something new!

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.
