Welcome To The Group With No Name
The Group With No Name (or GWNN-pronounced Gwen) is Central Texas based pansexual, social, and common interest organization that serves as a gateway organization focusing on education, advocacy, acceptance and social interaction for the alternative sexuality and kink lifestyle. It is non-commercial, not-for-profit, and dues-free. It exists to provide a positive and dynamic environment for people to meet others with a similar social interest in bondage, domination, submission, sadism, masochism and other related topics. Toward that end, GWNN attempts to foster community and encourage interaction through social events and functions.
Originally, we started out in 1993 with just organizing dinner socials for interested people. At that time, we did not think there was sufficient interest in a full organization here in Austin. Other attempts at starting full BDSM organizations had fallen flat. Because of this, we decided not to make up a full organization, complete with a snappy name right at the outset. As it turned out, there was in fact sufficient interest, but by the time we realized that, people had grown used to us being "The Group With No Name".
We are here to have fun! The primary purpose is social, along with support and education in a social setting. To this end, we host monthly socials (munch) so people can meet and get to know one another in a comfortable setting. In addition, we host BDSM play parties for our members in the Austin, Texas area. The parties are open to all members and their guests. Note that we ask that people attend at least one munch before coming to a party. This functions as our orientation to the group, as well as a chance for new people to meet some of the others so that their first party experience is more comfortable.
