The Next Generation of Philadelphia Kinksters
TNG stands for “The Next Generation” referring to the fact that we cater to the younger crowd. Although TNG groups exist in cities around the globe, it is not a national organization.
The kink community can be intimidating, especially for our younger members. TNG groups step in to provide a safe and welcoming atmosphere for people aged 18-35. Our munch exists for kinksters to meet other like-minded people, to learn more about BDSM, and to introduce them to the larger Philadelphia kink community. We welcome all orientations and genders, no matter what your level of experience. If you’re new to the scene or just curious about BDSM, our events are a great way to connect with people and learn.
Attend Our Munch
Munch n. (pl. -es) a munch is a casual social gathering for people interested in BDSM. They are often held at places like a restaurant, bar, or coffee shop. People are free to arrive and leave within the specified hours. The primary purpose is socializing and to help those who are curious about BDSM meet others, become more comfortable, and better informed. They are informal affairs that discourage fetish attire or BDSM play. Some munches may have a specific focus and others may be targeting a specific group. Each munch is different and reflects the personality of the group that attends it.
