A Regional Listing of Area Groups

For Washington DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Richmond, & the Mid-Atlantic Region


Regional Guide for area Groups is focused directly toward those more private venues for active participation &/or on-premise play. More public meet-&-greet or open forum opportunities are placed to Clubs. Mainstream opportunities are listed specifically in Mainstream.

Listings are segmented by region, then coded & categorized by the nature of their interest:

  • Alternative Music & Culture in Rust.
  • BDSM & Fetish in Red.
  • Lifestyle & Swinger in Green.
  • Gay, Bi, & Transgender in Wine
  • Mainstream in White.
