COVID-19 Announcement – events through August suspended

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 has made the decision to suspend all in-person APeX events through at least August.  The Board will continue to evaluate the risks of holding in-person event and make further announcements about schedule changes as merited.
The Board additionally asks that all community members do their part to help lessen the impact of COVID-19 wherever possible.  Wear a mask that fully covers your mouth and nose when in public and wash or sanitize your hands frequently.  We’re all familiar with making certain sacrifices in terms of safer sex practices to limit the spread of STI’s.  Please consider this virus in the same vein and practice social distancing where ever possible until this threat is under control.
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.
