Sunday, December 1st is World AIDS Day

From Aaron Duke:

If you or someone you know has ever felt ashamed of being gay or HIV Positive, please read this and pass it on.

Sunday, December 1st is World AIDS Day. World AIDS Day is held on 1 December each year and is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died. World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day and the first one was held in 1988.

With Thanksgiving quickly approaching and most of us sharing what we are grateful for, let's not forget the tireless work of David J Watt and the Mr. Friendly Campaign.
Mr Friendly is an international, yet grassroots movement to reduce stigma of HIV, encourage testing for HIV, and improve quality of life for those living with HIV.



*Disclaimer: This is my personal experience. Please do not judge my parents. It was a different time and many people were uneducated about HIV/AIDS and scared.

I remember it was 1986. A distant relative of my mother had passed away, and we made the trek to San Diego for her funeral. My mother had a cousin. I don't even remember his name. I just remember him. He was, well, you know - gay. I remember within three to five years, he died of "cancer". It was what they called it back then. Their was this unspoken shame of knowing someone who died of AIDS. Years later, I remember my mother confessing that it was probably AIDS, but no one wanted to say it.

My grandmother had a charming home in the White Rock Lake area of Dallas, which has become a popular location for gay and lesbian couples over the years. I remember a poly-triad "family" of gay men moving in next door. These three men had a beautiful home and yard. From time-to-time, they would even mow my grandmothers lawn for her. I remember one of the men died of "cancer". At least that is what we were told. Of course, my mother always said, "It was probably AIDS. They are gay."

These experiences taught me attitudes and beliefs about gay men, HIV/AIDS, and myself. I was taught being gay is something shameful. It should never be talked about. If people found out you were gay, what would they think? I was taught that HIV/AIDS are a gay disease. I was taught HIV/AIDS was something to be ashamed of. Don't ever tell anyone you have it. Just tell them you have "cancer". It was these beliefs based on ignorance and fear that taught me as a young, gay, man to be ashamed of being gay. IT TAUGHT ME TO HATE MYSELF.

People like, Mike Harrell identified this internalized homophobia and self-hatred. Mike helped me walk through it to the other side of freedom. I have learned to surround myself with people who support and love me.

I dream, that programs like Mr. Friendly will end the stigma associated with HIV, so others don't have to have these experience. If you are in one of those dark places, reach out and ask for help. Remember, The Best is Yet to Come.

VENUS IN FUR, Thursday, November 21


From Russ:

Dear Friends,

We have a wonderful opportunity to participate in a special leather/kink/BDSM event. The San Diego Repertoire Theater in Horton Plaza is honoring Leopold von Sacher-Masoch (the “m” in S&M.) with a production of his play, “Venus in Fur.”  The play’s run is from November 9 to December 8.


I am inviting you to join us on Thursday, November 21, before the play for a special activity that should be of interest to members of our Leather, Kink and BDSM communities.  There will be a panel talking about “All the Flavors of Kink.”  This panel features such luminaries as Dr, Jenn (Jennifer Gunsaullus), Jennifer Rehor, Suzy, Ms.San Diego Leather 1997, Alex West Moreau and the well known BDSM expert and leader, our very own, John McConnell.


The great thing about this event is that for every ticket sold, using the code: LEATHERFOUNDATION, during the run of the play the San Diego Repertoire Theater will donate $10 to The Leather Foundation. And this will apply through the run, not just on November 21.  Tickets for the evening cost only $39 per ticket.  So, now you can see a fine play and at the same time donate to your favorite charity.

You may purchase your tickets online, by calling the theater or going to the box office.  But whichever way you purchase your tickets, please use the code.  And by the way, there will be a full bar and complimentary hors d’oeuvres before the show on the 21st..

There is plenty of parking in the towers at Horton Plaza and you will be validated for four hours.

Please join us for this event.

Please let me know if you are going to be with us on November 21 as I have a limited number of seats set aside for our group and I anticipate that they will go fast.  If you want to reserve your seat with me and pay on the night of the show, please call me at 619-985-5385 or send me an email at mortensonboyd@ gmailcom so that you seat will be reserved for you.

Thank you and hope to see you there.

of Downtown San Diego, this event is open to all levels of experience,
and beginners are particularly welcome. If you're new to this sort of
thing, you can always trust that you'll end up with a positive
experience. You'll be surrounded by very, very nice folks who have a lot
of expertise and a deep level of trust with each other. We've been doing
this a long time, and we like to share what we now.

This is not your typical BDSM event, it's not a fundraiser, a workshop,
or a class really. Even though teaching and learning will be involved,
Friday Night Beat and Greets are just a pleasant way to share some good
times in a relaxed kinky setting. We all need to get the heck out of the
house once in a while - why not hang out with some folks that enjoy
doing what you enjoy doing?

There is no charge to attend the event, we just ask that you leave any
Attitude outside the door, be playful and open-hearted!

Things to keep in mind for this event:

This event is held in a private space; however, you are responsible for
your own actions at all times. Safety measures will be in place during
the event. Please bring a valid ID and be prepared to sign a liability
form. All information given will be kept confidential.

Because Dungeon Servitus resides within the confines of a residential
and commercial building, we ask that you act and dress appropriately
anywhere outside of the dungeon.

Anyone behaving in a manner that is considered inappropriate will be
asked to leave the property and may not be allowed reentry for future
events. The decisions of the Dungeon Servitus staff and hosts are final.

Please note a few things about the Beat and Greet:
1) The maximum capacity is 50 people. There is a chance you may be asked
to wait until someone leaves before being permitted to enter.

2) In order to allow everyone a chance to try things, we ask that you
limit your time on the play equipment to a short time. If there are
people waiting, we may ask you to wrap up your time on the equipment
after 10 minutes.

3) This is a community event that is hosted by members of the community.
Membership in any club or organization is not required.

Huggybear Contest

From Aaron:

Hi there. For those of you not going to Palm Springs Leather Pride, or you just want to do something a bit different, you're invited to come to the HuggyBear 2014 contest (and perhaps even run for the title). The HuggyBear 2014 Contest is at Numbers on Sunday, November 10th at 6:00 (but join us at 5:00 for the Bear-B-Q, cooked up by the incomparable Blue Montana).

Awesome entertainment by Dylan Pristiq Delusions. Emcee magic by RubyEmpress Ajax (as AJ). And contestants all vying for your hugs to help them become HuggyBear 2014. All proceeds benefit the Bears San Diego Charities for 2013 Being Alive San Diego HIV/AIDS Services and Special Delivery San Diego). I'm still looking for contestants--if you want to make a difference in the world just by giving hugs, please contact me via Facebook or at (619) 890-9182. Thanks so much.

No door charge--use your money to pay for hugs from your favorite contestant. Each candidate will also auction off an item that will count toward their "hug" total. The one who raises the most money wins the title!

Make a difference--one hug at a time.

Upcoming Events - Big Weekend

This weekend is Palm Springs Leather Pride 2013. I'm under the impression that a LOT of San Diegans will be joining me there, based upon what I'm hearing.

San Diegans at the Formal Leather Kickoff Dinner
during Palm Springs Leather Pride, 2012

San Diegans at the Toolshed Party during 
Palm Springs Leather Pride, 2012

In addition to all of the other, official events, there is the annual Parking Lot Party at the Tool Shed on Friday night. We have GOT to get one of these for San Diego!

C-R-U-I-S-Y, sexy, testosterone-laden, and there will be a ton of vendors who want to cater to our specific needs, selling boots, leather, toys, masculine bling and beer. There will be an entire lusty culture’s worth of explosive sensuality, and it is not to be missed. Same sort of energy as the Vendor Fair at IML, or the Parking Lot Party at the Faultline during Leather Pride. It was surprisingly cold in 2012, so bring lots of heavy gear if you’ve got it!

Review of Hallow's Eve Spanking Demo & Impact Butt Play, Oct. 30, 2013

Photos by our superb Documentarian Photographer Scott Smith, and Magnum!

From Magnum:

Our final event for October; the much anticipated..."Hallow's Eve Spanking Demo & Impact Butt Play" was a HUGE success!


There were 38 excited, hungry and gluttonous TOPS and bottoms ready to try our alternative demo night "play space"!

Patrick, (a member) graciously offered his home for our "trial run".


Patrick's home perfectly accommodated all of us and it's one of a few homes that has a cellar which created a cavernous and dungeon feel and energy.


While Patrick served as host, Papa Tony, Magnum and Mister Timothy "stepped up" as Dungeon Masters.


These men showed off their collections of paddles, floggers, canes and other devices for our spanking pleasures.


After a brief explanation of safety protocol, men eagerly "jumped in" to play, socialize and make connections.


Some men couldn't wait to be spanked, while others watched or asked questions and was encouraged to indulge all their senses of the evening festivities.


There was a palpable sense of intimacy and camaraderie throughout the evening.


Papa Tony confidently demonstrated the power of intimacy and surrender with the use of his "slave bob", using the more advance floggers and paddles in his collection.


As the evening came to a close, we all gathered, embraced and acknowledged a night of "delicious" fun that was filled with tricks & treats!

We all agreed that we're looking forward to more of these "demo night specials"!
