Kinky and anonymous?

Getting started in the local kinky / Fetlife community - with a real-life reputation to keep completely disconnected. How to do it?

29, male, straight, familiar enough with kinky stuff to make past girlfriends very happy. OKCupid works quite well at finding dates and girlfriends, but it's just a little too vanilla. I recently signed up on Fetlife and am getting familiar with the local (if fairly small) community. I'll be at the next munch in the area, that's for sure - going forward, getting involved as the schedule allows.
The issue is that I'm positive I'll run into people who know me. It *must* be possible to keep the 'real world' reputation untouched whilst enjoying what the community has to offer (and of course, what I can offer the community).
FWIW, there's zero connection between my username on Fetlife and anywhere else, and I've carefully ensured it would very difficult to impossible to ascertain who I am from that profile.
So, fellow kinky MeFi's, how do you enjoy yourself while keeping your anonymity?
