KuF was not created to promote ageism or to segment a community. It was to create a safe space where one was very much needed.
Most of us play with people of diverse ages and we encourage those who don’t to try it out–the experience is usually great! We do not ask our members to exclusively attend KuF events; on the contrary, we invite them to share about and attend any good kink event in the area, regardless of who is hosting.
KuF was created as a direct response to a story that was repeating itself over, and over, and over again. Young Bay Area men (particularly the leaner guys who identified as dominant) were trivialized at other kink gatherings and play parties. They were told they had not yet “earned” their right to be themselves. Some were told they needed to “eat a few burgers before you call yourself a Dom.” Young Doms and subs were met with Old Guard protectionism and treated like shit. Seriously. It was disgusting, and it didn’t stop.
Fuck that. We celebrate you and your sexuality! KuF is a forum to find peers and to build networks with others who help us discover (or remember) we’re not alone and we don’t need to feel that our interests are strange: there are other young guys out there who like bondage, guzzling piss, rough sex, puppy play, and soooooo much more. So let’s have fun!
(We’d like to note that the organization that unintentionally gave birth to KuF has changed their board. They’ve reached out in ways that show a definite change from the mentality we experienced before. That’s awesome, and we look forward to building more and more bridges between all our groups!)
