About APEX

Arizona Power Exchange


The Arizona Power Exchange (APEX) is a not-for-profit corporation that provides education, social opportunities, and support for adults who are interested in Bondage and Discipline; Dominance and Submission; and Sadomasochism (BDSM) who value individual responsibility, integrity, confidentiality, and respect for self and others. APEX provides on-going forums for education and practice of BDSM and opportunities for like-minded individuals to socialize, explore and learn in a respectful and dignified environment. APEX welcomes all sexual orientations, consensual relationships, and risk-aware BDSM and sexual practices.

Celebrating our 27th year in operation, APEX provides over 500 events to our community each year. We are proud to partner with NCSF to help spread the message of informed consent.

At APEX we believe in:

Respect for One’s Self and Others: Individuals engaged in BDSM are valued members of society and deserve to be treated with respect regardless of the role assumed in that society.

Stewardship of the BDSM Lifestyle: The participation in community service, volunteerism, educational forums, and support and encouragement of personal growth.

Diversity: The respect of individual differences including the respect of all religious and political beliefs, nationalities, ethnicities, genders and sexual orientations.

Personal and Communal Integrity: The individual freedom to make one’s own decisions and take one’s own actions, when doing so with honesty, personal responsibility, risk awareness, and consent.

Confidentiality: The right of each member to decide how much information about their own lifestyle, activities, and words shall be shared with any other individual.
