Leathermen's Discussion Group

The Leather Alliance Weekend is proud to have Leathermen’s Discussion Group as a Bronze-level sponsor. Without their generous support, this weekend would not be possible.

The San Francisco Leathermen’s Discussion Group is an all-volunteer men’s social and educational organization dedicated to sharing the knowledge, skills, values, ideas, and history of the men’s leather/kink/fetish/BDSM community, locally and nationally.

We meet, with some exceptions, on the 4th Wednesday of every month, in the studio above Mr S. Leather, at 385A Eight Street in San Francisco, from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. All meetings are free. Many presentations are video-recorded, with ample seating out of camera range. Meetings are a safe place for fetish behavior, including nudity. While our topics and demos are geared toward men, meetings are open to all adults of legal age (unless otherwise specified in the event description).

Our venue is donated, thanks to Mr S.’ generosity, and our presenters donate their time as well. Your discretionary donations support our few costs.

The Ms. San Francisco Leather contest celebrates our diverse and dynamic Greater San Francisco Bay Area leather/kink/fetish community, and raises money to support the work of relatively small non-profit organizations. Each year at the Ms. San Francisco Leather contest, an esteemed panel of judges selects a leatherwoman to represent our community. This representative is a leatherwoman who exemplifies the principles of honor, service and community commitment.

Leather Alliance Weekend 2017

The 2017 San Francisco Bay Area Leather Alliance Weekend will be March 3rd through 5th, 2017.

Plans are in process to hold major events at SOMArts, at 934 Brannan Street in San Francisco.  Additional related events will take place at other locations around the city.

The Leather Alliance Weekend always includes the Mr San Francisco Leather contest, the SF Leather Community Awards ceremony, and the Victory Party.   This year we are looking forward to a special Titleholders Reunion party on Friday evening, a day of classes and workshops on Saturday, and one or more play parties.

Mr San Francisco Leather contest on Saturday night will have the theme “Reunion”, bringing together the “Band of Brothers” from past San Francisco and International Mr. Leather competitions.  We will have seven contestants, from a range of San Francisco institutions, presenting themselves for our consideration, and for judging by a distinguished panel.

Expect to see an array of fascinating items in our silent auction, and some selected vendor offerings as well.

Plans are still being made, so please return to this page soon for more info!  One thing is certain, though: Volunteers will be needed to make this year’s Weekend a success.  Please write to Volunteerslaweekend2017@gmail.com to become involved.

A Vibrant, Worldwide, Human Community
Sex is part of human nature, and cultures surrounding sex have been around since before written history. With the melting pot of humanity brought about and accelerated by globalization, there is no better way to discover what the locals do than to get out there and travel. Sex tourism is a growing trend, and we view our hosts are not only our valued partners but as authorities on the local sex positive scene.

Local Color
When you’re on vacation, it’s good to know that your host has the same dirty mind as you. We encourage our guests and hosts to interact to share knowledge about local amenities, such as:

  • Local Nightclubs and Private Clubs
  • Local Adult Toy Stores
  • Local Restaurants
  • Local Clothing Stores (adult or otherwise)
  • Local Services (massage, hair, manicurist,etc.)

The Tools to Find Your Kink
Here at KinkBNB we strive to help you find your kink. We’re constantly improving our website, adding amenities and features. Some of the latest features to KinkBNB are:

  • Request a property – Going somewhere but can’t find a place there? Put the call out and make sure hosts in that area know they could be making money.
  • Search – Search based on location and time is cool, but we’ve added searching by vacation type – Romantic, Kinky, Getaway, and more.
  • Improved Reviews
  • Your KinkBNB Wallet – A comprehensive system to easily manage transactions between Guests, Hosts, and KinkBNB.
  • Make money- As we roll out more options, future offers enable guests and hosts alike the chance to make money through affiliate programs and referrals.
