Want to gawk at the locals? Like public whippings, bondage, ripped men in leather chaps? So do a lot of other people. This Sunday, the city of San Francisco plays host to Up Your Alley Fair, a.k.a Dore Alley. Leather enthusiasts, daddies, BDSMers, exhibitionists and voyeurs like yourself will prowl booths and blush a smidgen or two.

Located on Dore Alley between Folsom and Howard streets, the fair will last from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The day is guaranteed to be kinky, and the whole weekend has leather/male-only events raging. The best part (besides the intoxicating smell of leather)? It’s free.

i passed through this! it was intimidating for sure but a cool new experience. it’s not that interesting for someone who’s not into BDSM though…and there were a ton of beer stands (boring)…

but the ‘costumes’ (or lack thereof) were interesting. there were lot of middle aged white dudes there. I’ve never seen so many middle-aged white dudes en masse.
