This text is created on the basis on that you, the reader is Swedish, and apparently you are not….. But I’ll bet that if you look around there will a kind of BDSM subculture in your country as well. So general advice might still be valid.
The Internet is obviously a good start, but both as brand new, couple or single, who has been within the subculture of BDSM a while we really want to strike a blow for you to meet like-minded people in the real world.

These are an exemplary way to meet others, talk, immerse yourselves, and in a less dramatic way to give you or your partner more impressions. No matter where in Sweden you live, there is currently only one site that constantly updates what’s going on so instead of lining all the possibilities which in time will become outdated, we recommend:
