Bound by Desire is a non-profit, social, educational, and support group exclusively for women who have a positive interest in BDSM play with other women. We sponsor educational, informational, and social events. Bound by Desire is founded in the spirit of the acceptance and celebration of sexual diversity. We support the rights of women to explore their sexuality as they choose as long as they do so consensually and with an awareness of safety.

We are now in our 3rd decade of service to the leather community. Bound by Desire was formed in 1991 by a group of leatherdykes in Austin, Texas. The club continues to grow and now has members from all over Texas and a few in other states.

We hold monthly socials at a coffeehouse or restaurant to meet new people and get together with old friends. The socials are generally held on the 3rd Saturday of the month from 2-4pm in Austin (check for the schedule during the holiday season).

We have at least four parties a year including our premier event The Hunt.

Our membership requirements are stringent. The women that join our club must have integrity and uphold the safe, sane, and consensual ideals that we believe BDSM activities should be based upon. We welcome all women – Lesbian, Bisexual, Heterosexual and Transsexual.
