Wake Up! Pay Attention!

 I am mentioning this now because I was shocked at how few guys at our last HARNESS Party knew about the BIG event coming up.

The biggest event of the last 35 months is coming up on June 1st. There are new, surrounding events, being announced here for the first time.

It would be a good idea to check it out below, because you will be angry at yourself for missing out on the fun!

This is the big one - Folks are coming to San Diego from all over Southern California to be part of this:

Saturday, June 1, 9PM: We will gather on the sidewalk outside of the Birch North Park Theater at 2891 University Ave. We will be hosting a gear contest, taking our biggest group photo yet, and introducing out-of-town guests who have arrived for this weekend's First Annual FetishMen Family Reunion.  We will be enjoying the West Coast premiere of Interior. Leather Bar:
Interior. Leather Bar. (2013) - USA (CALIFORNIA PREMIERE. – Official Sundance Selection) Run Time: 60 min | Director: James Franco & Travis Mathews The 1980 film Cruising (starring Al Pacino as an undercover cop investigating a murder in the NYC gay leather bar scene) was plagued with controversy, and its director was forced by the MPAA to cut 40 minutes of sexually explicit material. Filmmakers James Franco and Travis Mathews set out to reimagine what might have transpired in those lost scenes in this documentary-style film about the making of a film. The cameras roll as Franco and Mathews assemble a mix of gay and straight men, focusing on the actor (Val Lauren) who portrays Al Pacino. What emerges is a portrait of the fascinating dynamics that drive the filmmakers’ need to challenge normalcy, the interplay of celebrity and experimentation and the dilemma faced by actors struggling with the idea of performing in a sexually explicit, gay, S&M film. The result is a provocative exploration of a radical and transgressive society and it’s importance to challenge us with new and unconventional ideas.
After the movie, we will be bringing our ticket stubs to the Eagle (a block and a half away) for a shot of our choice… whether it's a Flaming Fart, Hot Jizz, Cowboy Cocksucker or a Bartender's Wet Dream!

It is also likely that we will be having a Sunday brunch event.  Watch for more announcements.




Saturday, June 11: International Mr. and Ms Olympus Leather 2013 is on Saturday, May 11 at the Hilton LAX in Los Angeles, CA; doors open at 7 PM and contest starts at 7:30 PM.  We have 11 contestants which is a record high for International Olympus.

June 14-16, 2013: All Male Butchmanns Experience @ APEX in Phoenix Arizona. A weekend opportunity for self-discovery...the emphasis of activities is on personal transformation and growth, particularly related to our fetishes.
