Fetish Society

Welcome to Warwick Fetish Society!


 

Coronavirus Update: We have made the difficult decision not to run any in-person events in Term 1 as a result of the ongoing outbreak. However, we've still got lots of things going on! Have a look through the "Events (Coronavirus Edition)" section on this page to see an up-to-date list of upcoming events, or check us out on Facebook. We look forward to virtually meeting you!

Ever been curious about what BDSM actually involves? Had a question about kink but nobody to ask? You've come to the right place!

Warwick Fetish Society is an inclusive and accepting community aiming to encourage safety, consent, and destigmatisation of BDSM and fetish activities. A 2005 survey by Durex found that 37% of UK respondents had used "masks, blindfolds, and other forms of bondage" as part of sex, yet BDSM is still not widely accepted in society. We believe everyone should have somewhere to express themselves without fear of judgement, and to learn about how to safely engage in their interests.

Events (Coronavirus Edition)

Socials: Every Wednesday during term time, via our Discord server from 3:00pm. These weekly socials are great for getting to know each other in a non-kink-focused environment. While conversations do sometimes stray onto BDSM related topics, we spend most of the time chatting about entirely unrelated things, and you don't have to divulge anything you're not comfortable telling people. The pandemic-friendly version of these socials are group voice calls via our Discord server (see "How to Join" if you're not in this yet).

Talks: Every other Monday during term time, streamed via our Twitch channel. This term's talks are:

Film Nights: Ever wondered how well the media represents the BDSM subculture? FetSoc film nights are a great way to explore this! Our first film night (at the end of Term 2 of last year) was a screening of Fifty Shades of Grey, accompanied by a lively discussion of its many entertaining flaws. Not all films we show are related to kink, however - previous showings have also included popular crowd pleasers such as Inception and The Cat in the Hat. Our film nights are currently facilitated by the Netflix Party Chrome extension, however we endeavour to release film titles in advance so you have time to find the film elsewhere if you don't have access to a Netflix account (please don't pirate anything). This term's films are:

Quizzes: A range of interesting questions, of varying relevance to BDSM and fetish. You can participate alone or in a team, and we'll be collecting and marking answers to find an overall winner! The quizzes will both be streamed via our Twitch channel.

Game Nights:  A chance to relax and enjoy a range of online games from the comfort of your own home. We've got two planned for this term:

Events (Normal Operation)

Socials: We run weekly socials for our members which are great for getting to know each other in a non-kink-focused environment. While conversations do sometimes stray onto BDSM related topics, we spend most of the time chatting about entirely unrelated things, and you don't have to divulge anything you're not comfortable telling people. We don't publicly disclose the locations and times of our socials for privacy reasons. Instead, details are posted in our private Facebook group and Discord server (see "How to Join" if you're not in either of these yet).

Talks: Most Mondays during term time, at 6:30pm. Recent talk topics have included Consent & Negotiation and An Introduction to Impact Play, and we're always open to new ideas! Our talks are usually followed by a related discussion and occasionally a trip to the pub (non drinkers welcome).

Bondage for Beginners: A couple of times a term, we transform a university lecture room into Warwick's very own rope bondage workshop. Taught by experienced members of our exec, our hugely popular Bondage for Beginners classes will teach you the basics of how to safely tie up your partner, and how to safely get tied up - the latter is more complicated than you might think! Rope and safety shears are provided, no previous knowledge is required and you're very welcome to sit at the side of the room and observe from a distance if you don't fancy getting involved yourself. Note: due to high demand, you must sign up before attending a bondage class. Sign up information will be made available a few weeks in advance of each class.

Film Nights: Ever wondered how well the media represents the BDSM subculture? FetSoc film nights are a great way to explore this! Our first film night (at the end of Term 2 of last year) was a screening of Fifty Shades of Grey, accompanied by a lively discussion of its many entertaining flaws. Not all films we show are related to kink, however - previous showings have also included popular crowd pleasers such as Inception and The Cat in the Hat.

How to Join

We have two lively, friendly online community spaces in the form of a private Facebook group and Discord server - each of which have over 80 members! To join either of these, contact our exec via our website, email or Facebook page. If you're unfamiliar with Discord, don't worry - our President was at first too! We can talk you through setting up an account. If you don't have either Facebook or Discord, but would still like to attend our socials, email us to let us know and we'll find a way of connecting with you!

Only the exec can give out Discord invites, so if you want to join you'll need to ask one of us directly.

Any Questions?

Contact us via our website, email, or Facebook page! We should be able to get back to you within a few days.

Important

We are not a dating forum. Please do not join expecting us to provide matchmaking services, or to harass or stalk our members.

Due to the nature of our society, you must be 18+ to attend our events or join our community.
