Upcoming Events

An additional choice is happening for this big, BIG weekend:


I had plumb forgotten that this Friday is also the Men-Only Beat and Greet downtown. Lots of flogging, paddling and any other form of Percussion Play.

Folks who are interested should gather at 9PM at the front entrance of the DMV in Hillcrest at 3960 Normal St. for ride-sharing.  Parking is horrid downtown (it's free and very available in the DMV parking-lot), and the experience is more brotherly if you ride-share. Why am I not posting the address?  because they don't want random strangers just showing up without friends to vouch for them.  It's a small, intimate space.




Worth repeating: A LOT of men have been asking how they can pre-purchase movie tickets to our biggest event ever. The direct purchase link is here, and the cost is ten bucks a ticket, with a service fee of $2.  The reason why I am recommending this, is because we filled the theater 2/3 full last time in August, and this time we have a LOT more guys attending, including plenty from out of town.

I want my FetishMen brothers to get first priority!




Our brother James is in Kuwait today, KuWAITing for an exit visa so he can come home to us… He is now permanently away from Bagram in Afghanistan, where they were mortaring the base when he left.

Incidentally, way in the back you can see the Patriot Missile erectors. There are 2 of them. As a 57-year old man, I could use one of those sometimes.

He should be home Monday or so. He is going to need some quiet, private time to unwind and get his feet under him (and to get over some SERIOUS jet-lag from 8,000 miles and 12.5 hours of time-difference away), so let's just let him be for a bit. We will have a nice, big Welcome Home party for him after a couple of weeks.

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 FartHot JizzCowboy Cocksucker or a Bartender's Wet Dream!

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