London Dates & Mastery at The Backstreet

I’m very excited to be attending Brew Hunter’s Mastery at The Backstreet in London, the UK’s only strict dress-code Leather Bar. If you are attending would be great to say hello – but introduce yourself as I have a terrible memory and won’t recognise most people I follow. Sessions Available 18th & 19th January in London I am also taking bookings for subs or slaves looking to serve in London. If you have always wanted […]

Folsom Street Fair 2019

This year I returned to Folsom! But not Berlin, which is what most people in the UK think of when I mention Folsom. I returned to the original San Francisco Folsom Street Fair, my 4th visit to this iconic event. The worlds largest leather/kink event attracting around 250,000 visitors (for reference that is ten times larger then Folsom Europe). I’ve never done Folsom East or Folsom Berlin so cannot compare the events, but I know […]

Event Review: Kinky Consent

For a long time I’ve been looking for a kinky fetishy bdsmy club night of pervery that is local. I will admit I’ve never been a big one for most clubs, the exception to the rule has always been Backstreet. Most gay fetish events don’t interest me because most just seem to be mostly a sex club with crap dress code. If that is your thing that’s fine, for me I want to socialise, be […]

Something New

With January now firmly upon us, many start to think about what they want to do in the new year. So this year lets all try to do something new to expand our interests. Visit Somewhere New This year I plan on doing some new bars, clubs and events, how about you, why not try somewhere new. That could just be a visit to a new city, a new cafe or new bar or even […]

Stompers … A Boot Worshippers Paradise

Since posting this image Instagram I had planned on making a blog post about these boots. But news today has led to a change of subject. Mike McNamee, probably not a name you are familiar with. But one that the Leather community the world over will know the influence of. Mike was the founder and original owner of a store many have visited or certainly heard of – Stompers Boots in San Francisco. I was […]

Bar Review: Boltz Birmingham

I’ll admit it, I don’t go out too much to the kink / fetish scene in the UK. Sometimes if you spend too much time on Twitter and Instagram etc you can get the impression you are only a real kinkster if you go out on the scene loads. Nothing could be further from the truth! The gay fetish scene really doesn’t cater for all tastes, and unfortunately like most niche markets is very focused […]

When my first sling got lost in the hotel …

I saw a post on twitter that reminded me of my very first sling, and associated sling stand! At the time I didn’t have anywhere to permanently hang a sling, or at least fix attachment points to that I was confident would be safe and secure! So I looked at doing what lots of people do in that situation and buy a portable sling stand. The problem was … not many places sold them in […]

Review: SM Apartments Berlin

I’ve been looking back at an old blog and a few years ago I wrote a post about the SM Apartments, owned by SteelCollar, in Berlin. I thought it was worth sharing a slightly updated version of this post as some of you kinksters may be interested in it. I’m very lucky in that I have my own permanent dungeon space, but appreciate that most people don’t have that luxury. And so quite often look […]

Help Send The King To IML

For a long time now I’ve felt in a minority … a proud active Leatherman. But one for who the majority of the gay fetish “scene” in the UK hasn’t held much interest. I’ve always enjoyed my trips to Leather events and bars in the USA – CLAW (Cleveland Leather Annual Weekend) is a favourite event, and The Eagle in San Francisco a favourite bar. And one of the reasons I have always enjoyed them […]

Manchester Pride 2016

Thankyou Manchester for not just a Big Weekend, but an amazing weekend! And thankyou to all my friends who were a part of it and made it so special. I last went to Manchester Pride a three or four years ago, and had quite a mixed experience of it. But was determined to make the best of it this year … it’s all in the planning. I have quite a love / hate relationship with […]
