I. Swap Meat + Pup Mosh

This Friday (tomorrow) is the Bi-Monthly Swap Meat at Urban Mo's! What is the Swap Meat? It's a Cruising and Social party where people from around San Diego bring their used and old Leather, toys, and gear to Sell, Buy, and Trade to find new homes for them! The Swap Meat is from 7-9, leading in to Gear Weekend at the San Diego Eagle!


This one will be bigger than the last two and feature a Puppy Play Mosh! If you've ever been interested in Pup Play, whether that be as a Handler/Owner or as a Pup, this is a great way of taking a look at this style of play!

IV: Workshop Recap!


Here's one of two new sections to the blog! A minor recap of our last workshop. This month we did a Food Play and Gunge (aka Wet&Messy) workshop led by Doriam! Won't go into too much detail, but here are a few photos for you!

We might have made Doriam into a Human Sundae... and it looks like he hated every minute of it.



V: Member Submissions


This is another new section for us, if you have an ad, shout out, etc. you'd like to include into the blog posts, you can email DoriamFMSD@GMail.com or FetishMenSanDiego@GMail.com and we will do our best to include them! This includes anything leading to personal blogs, reaching out to brothers for individual meetups or trying to schedule events!

VI: From ME to YOU


It's been a while since I did this, but From ME to YOU is back! I just wanted to say thank you to each of you who have supported me and Fetish Men San Diego along the way! It's been a great adventure so far, and I'm so proud to see the growth of this organization over the last year and a half.

This part is where I often babble about whatever is coming up on my end of the world so that it doesn't come up as a surprise. Right now, I am working on my Pin Run project which features my years hashtag, #LetsWalkTogether, for more information follow the hashtag link. Pins are $8 each and +$3 S&H. This goes to support Our Safe Place, a branch of San Diego Youth Services, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the SDLP2018 and SDLP2019 Titleholder Funds.


Additionally, Shilo and I have our personal title project to Reclaim, Restore, and Redistribute Leather with a History. Throughout the year, we will be partnering with Thrift Stores and local Leatherfolk to hear the stories of the Leather that they have collected over time, and bring new life and love to them. If you, or someone you know, has Leather or Fetish Gear that they no longer want/need, please have them reach out to me (MisterSDL2018@GMail.com) and I would love to find new homes for their gear. As a part of this movement, we try to get a bit of information about the history of the Leather's owner(s) so it can be shared with the new recipient.

Please feel free to reach out if you want to know more about any of these things!

Today's Workshop + Potluck moved to Eagle

March 13th Workshop

Howdy Gentleman!

Because of the weather, we've changed the destination of today's workshop to the San Diego Eagle. 4-6 and it will be a potluck in addition to a workshop! See you there!!

This month, Doriam will be teaching a combination workshop on the following topics! These skills are SOFT skills, and he is temporarily naming the workshop, "How to get what, and who, you want."

Teasing & Flirting: This workshop is about all of the work that goes in BEFORE physical intimacy in the bedroom (or wherever you happen to be!). While the skills themselves are less "outward" than what we might traditionally teach, this workshop will allow attendees to explore themselves as sexual beings, while integrating exercises designed to leave you and other attendees craving more.

Food Play & Gunge: Gunge is play that involves being sticky, covered in goopy substances, and LOVING IT. Food Play often goes hand-in-hand! This workshop will teach how to incorporate different aspects of both of these fields into your play, as well as how to avoid some of the unwanted messes that come along with them. (There MIGHT be Lube Wrestling even!)



See you there, Gents!

Finding Leather (Today 7-9!) & Sunday Workshop!

I. Club X - XMen! - Finding Leather

Thursday, May 10, 2018
7PM to 9PM
Pleasures & Treasures
2525 University Avenue, San Diego, CA 92104

Do you remember taking the first step in to your fetish, kink and Leather journey? Do you remember the energy in the room? The things you saw? The people you met? The thumping in your pants?

Or maybe you're craving the opportunity to experience all of that for the first time.

Finding Leather will be the debut discussion led by this years Mr. San Diego Leather and Eagle Titleholders, Doriam and Jody respectively. This round table style event will let attendees tell the stories of their first time finding Leather, and for those who are curious ABOUT Leather, will be an opportunity to talk to Leathermen both established and new about how they navigated this Subculture of LGBTQ+ life.

I. Panorama + March 13th Workshop

Howdy Gentleman!

We've moved our workshops and socials to our venue in La Mesa, California (94141)! The venue is located just off the 94 Freeway and is lovingly named The Panorama in reference to the area it's located in. And with the weather changing, we are hoping to take advantage of the beautiful, warm weather by moving our workshop time to 3PM to 6PM! This will give us the opportunity to use the venue for mid-day socials by the poolside during the summer as well going forward!

Howdy Gentleman! This last month has been exciting as Mr. San Diego Leather, but it has brought to my attention how my attention has been divided. I am asking for assistance from you, the members of FMSD. #LetsWalkTogether if you are able, and offer your hand to help your brothers and sisters in Leather whenever possible! I am currently looking for someone to take over the content writing for the blog, it takes approximately an hour and the ability to check a calendar!

If you're interested in learning how to help, please Email me at DoriamFMSD@GMail.com! And, shamelessly, follow my title page on Facebook to learn more about #LetsWalkTogether, my Title Campaign for the year!

Other play is welcome in all spaces, including (but not limited to): fisting, water sports*, and sex play.

9PM to 1AM
House of Black, San Diego
Cost: $20, payable via Paypal or by contacting DoriamFMSD@GMail.com
Address Provided with Will Call up to 24 hours before the party.

CRUZE is a new party we're hosting! Unlike our Members-Only Play Party (MPP), CRUZE is a Mens-Only Night of Fetish and Cruising! This party starts a little later in the evening from 9PM to 1AM and will have a designated Bartender on staff handling drinks for those who choose to indulge.

SM IS NOT THE FOCUS OF THIS PARTY.

CRUZE is a night where men can explore their fetishes and cruise as they like. The playrooms of House of Black will be set up to accommodate pick-up play, socialization and fetish exploration instead of our traditional dungeon setup. If you choose to engage in SM-style play (flogging, whips, electro, etc), please keep such play in the designated area. Other play is welcome in all spaces, including (but not limited to): fisting, water sports*, and sex play.

Want to explore a certain fetish, or looking for people interested in what you enjoy? Be sure to bring out your hankies, lube and condoms! CRUZE is scheduled to happen the Fifth Weekend of each month, when applicable.

Come out and join us for the very first:

This month's discussion has swapped to the second Sunday and will be led by Sir Jerry M! With the ever growing fetish, kink, and Leather community, we find ourselves adding new words to our vocabulary day-after-day. This month, we wanted to take the time to talk about some of the terms that have sprung up seemingly over night, and see if we can find even some clarification on the words we thought we knew coming in to it!



Sunday Skill Share - Fisting!

You asked and we're delivering! Two of our Men have made themselves available to teach about one of the most highly sought-out skills in kink: FISTING. Nathan and Jeremy are well versed in the techniques and practices involved in both stretching someone to the point where they can be fisted safely, and how the bottom can help their fister. You certainly DON'T want to miss this one!

CRUZE is a new party we've chosen to test out this month, unlike our Members-Only Play Party (MPP), CRUZE is a Mens-Only Night of Fetish and Cruising! Also unlike MPP, this party happens a little later in the evening from 9PM to 1AM and will have a designated Bartender on staff handling drinks for those who choose to indulge. (Tips appreciated)

SM IS NOT THE FOCUS OF THIS PARTY.

Unlike MPP, CRUZE is set up to be a night where men can explore their fetishes and cruise as they see fit. The playrooms of House of Black will be set up to accommodate pick-up play, socialization and fetish exploration instead of our traditional dungeon setup. If you choose to engage in SM-style play (flogging, whips, electro, etc), please keep such play in the designated areas, SM-style play in other spaces will be directed back to that area. Sex-Based play is welcome in all other spaces, including (but not limited to): fisting, water sports*, and sex play.
