Check out Leatherati's own Co-Editor in Chief, Leland Carina's, new blog column for PQ Monthly. Leland has been a major contributor to Leatherat's success and it's awesome to see her share her voice with the kinksters in Portland. I <heart> Leland!
For 20 minutes he made nasty, sweaty, greasy love to my boots. He ground the soles against his crotch. He licked them. He kissed them. He probably applied Pecard's with his tongue as he made sure that not a single inch of leather escaped his attention.
Recently one of my Facebook friends re-posted a question about whether or not educators and activists in the alternative sexuality communities should use their full name and not hide behind screen or scene names. It's not a new questions for sure. I hear various forms of it at almost every event I attend. On that [...]
So, a trash-talking drag queen, a pretty-boy boy stripper and a senior Elvis impersonator walk in to a bar... It kinda does sound like the opening salvo of a nasty joke but really it's just the tip of the iceberg to one of the funnest events I've been to in a long time - Sin [...]
Although no female contestants stepped up for the 2014 Ms SW Olympus Leather competition, on the men's side there were three guys who took the challenge: Steven, Papa Bear and Mr Dark. Each had to survive private judge interviews, an on stage pop question as well as present a speech and a fantasy. I can [...]
Check out TC's stepdown speech delivered at the 2014 SW Olympus Leather contest during the Sin in the City 2014 weekend event.

The comparisons aren't much of a stretch: acres of beautiful flesh, rows of glittering white teeth (with maybe more than [...]
The weekend of February 21-23, 2014 found me at the 3rd Annual BOLD Conference in Burbank, CA. Specifically targeted to the Male Dominant Heterosexual Leather (MDHL) community, BOLD is the brainchild of the Monarchs, a Southern California MDHL exclusive group. The BOLD conference is organized around the familiar education track accompanied with socializing opportunities an [...]
Coming up in less than two weeks is an event which is unique among the numerous lifestyle conferences offered in the kink community - the BOLD weekend conference at the Burbank Airport Marriott, February 21 - 23, 2014. Now in it's 3rd year, BOLD is specifically targeted to the MDHL (Male Dominant Heterosexual Leather community) [...]
