Something New In Kink: The FLOG SWARM.  This article has now been read worldwide in eighteen countries within 12 hours of being posted on Facebook.  It is one of the most viral articles I've ever posted. Pure excitement and potential for future breakthroughs!

Leather Realm Itinerary for 2013 - Lots of workshops!

Spa For SaleThis is not my usual sort of posting.  Here is why I'm including it:  We are in a TERRIBLE economy right now.  Due to the sequesters, things are getting WORSE for many of our brothers.  Ron is selling his spa, but he's not just some random dude.  He is a leatherman, as well as Mr. Bear SOCAL 2011, and Mr. Bear San Diego 2007.

From Race Bannon: My friend and Race's Bar group member Patrick Mulcahey wrote a rather brilliant article published recently in the Society of Janus' Growing Pains newsletter. He addresses the issue of "coming out" as a kinkster in one of the most beautiful, eloquent and sensitive manners I've seen to date. Treat yourself and read this article. It's important.

An inspired homage to every Hollywood film ever made about nuns. Written by the comic genius behind such classics as The Tale of the Allergists Wife, Die, Mommie, Die!; Psycho Beach Party; and Vampire Lesbians of Sodom, this gleefully twisted tale tells the story of an indomitable Mother Superior trying to cope with a young postulant experiencing "visions," a sensitive schoolboy in need of mentoring, a mysterious nun visiting from Berlin, and a former suitor intent on luring her away from her vows.

Saturday, August 17, 7:30pm @ Birch North Park Theatre. FilmOut presents "FIRST PERIOD" - SAN DIEGO PREMIERE!  Director: Charlie Vaughn. Description: If John Waters were to direct a John Hughes film – this outrageous new comedy would be that film! New girl Cassie (Brandon Alexander III) and school outcast Maggie (Dudley Beene) are easily the most unpopular girls at their high school. Together, they decide the way to win the hearts of cute boys and popular girls is to enter--and win--the annual Talent Show. But rivals Heather (Lauren Rose Lewis), other Heather, and their popular boyfriends Dirk (Michael Turchin) and Brett (Leigh Wakeford) will stop at nothing to keep Cassie and Maggie the laughing stock of the school. It's going to take courage, a make over, and maybe even a rap battle to beat them in true 80s style. With Jack Plotnick, Cassandra Peterson & Judy Tenuta! Running Time: 100 min, Unrated Check out the teaser here. Get tickets here.
