What is SFLDG?
Founded in 1996, SFLDG has an educational mission with a once-a-month presentation of a kink/fetish/leather/BDSM skill or topical discussion, interview, or panel relevant to kinky guys and their allies. Every month, 60-150 people join us for 2 hours to meet new people, learn, and have fun. Come with a friend, or drop in on your own. With a huge audience of the most interesting folks in the Bay Area, we tend to be the best place to meet and socialize and hang out with other kinksters. You'll be welcome.
Is a leather title necessary to take a leadership role? What compels contestants to run? What do we expect of titleholders and how has that changed over time? Are titleholders meeting the BDSM/Leather/Fetish community’s expectations? Are there too many title contests? What would the community look like without titles?
Join us and our panelists for a conversation on these questions and more. There will be time for Q&A, bring your questions for our panelists. Submit question suggestions by clicking here.
Please note the new location for this program: the SF LGBT Community Center, 1800 Market Street.
Puppy play has been one of the fastest growing fetishes in recent years. Some see it as a gateway kink with its elements of dominance and submission, punishment and reward. Pups shed their human persona and live in the moment as they take on their pup identity. Pup Handlers establish dominance over their human pups. Brue will share his experience in both pup and handler roles
The evening will include an interview, a demo and Q&A. If you would like to try being a pup or handler for the first time, arrive early, a limited number of spaces will be available for demo participants from the audience.
Have you ever wanted to see the creative dungeons guys have created in their homes? This is your chance! We will visit 3 to 4 home dungeons in the city. Each stop will have live models "in action" for your viewing enjoyment.

Tickets will be available online, details are still in the works, look for more information in mid to late January.
A question about "old leather traditions" and "houses" came up on someone else's FB page and I wrote this advice: There are no "old leather traditions." There are behaviors that individuals and small, isolated groups developed...
A few years ago, your consensual kinks—being spanked, fetishizing feet, the desire to be tied up while having sex, and anything else your perverted little mind can come up with—could have cost you everything...
What questions would you like to hear at our January 2015 Program ARE LEATHER TITLES NECESSARY?
Is an age-specific social group exclusionary? Are guys in one age bracket discriminating against men in another age range because they want to hang out with guys their own age?
That may have been what made it so difficult to see where meth was taking me. I didn't meet the strung out addicts we hear so much about. The guys I met and played with weren't covered in scabs or depleted looking. They were in good shape, gregarious, and sexy as hell. Like my friend, T.
