SF LDG Presents: An Evening with Guy Baldwin

Host: San Francisco Leathermen's Discussion Group (SF LDG)

When: Wednesday, 27 May 2020, 7:30-9:30pm

Where: Online Event - https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89777151624


Connection, physical touch, all the things gay men have repeatedly been told not to do en masse—for various reasons—in the last fifty years; they are being told not to do again. Refreshingly so is everyone else this time, but still.

Ironically this virus, while capable of being deadly to anyone of any age or gender, is most dangerous to the survivors of the last epidemic—older men with compromised immune systems. As with any epidemic, the toll isn’t merely on the physical health of the infected, it is on the mental health of us all. What's more, evidence suggests that it is men aged 18 to 43 who are finding these isolating times the most challenging.

Given all that, we thought who better to talk to than someone who has more than a few times in his life, in more than a few ways, helped to lead his people - leathermen and kinksters, through difficult times—Guy Baldwin.

We’ll speak to Guy from his home in LA, and pick his brains on how we get through this without making it worse for ourselves, as we once again deal not only with managing our own needs and the risks we’re prepared to take to meet them, but also vastly diverse views on what constitutes responsible, respectful behavior and what doesn’t.

Wednesday, 18 March 2020, 7 PM – 9 PM 

Upstairs at Pleasures & Treasures

2525 University Ave, San Diego, CA 92104



Rope is nice to look at and feels great, but when you're ready to take someone down and use their hole(s), there just isn't enough time for the pretty shit.
Join boy doriam in this class for take down play and aggressive style rope, inspired by Hojojutsu, used to capture the bottom and keep them there. This class will cover two basic knots and several hitches used for quick and dirty rope and how to safely and securely bind your bottom.

*note: Class will be divided into theory and practical application, please be prepared to tie/be tied by bringing rope and/or stretching before the class itself.

Bio - boy doriam

boy doriam is a LatinX, Poly, Homosexual, Panromantic, Leatherman and Full-time College student by day, and by night he is ALSO a Full-time college because college is hard.

In 2018 he represented the San Diego community as Mr. San Diego Leather and the boy traveled sampling conferences nationwide, and bringing back his learnings.


He now is incredibly fortunate and thankful to continue travelling across the country to conferences and events teaching a variety of classes between hard skills, soft skills, and discussion panels. boy doriam was honored with being the 2019 Man of the Year during the San Diego Leather Community Awards, and was a Pantheon of Leather nominee the same year.
