Our Vision

Desert Fetish Authority

What We’re About

We envision a Next Guard fetish organization built on five principles:

>

Brotherhood

We are a fraternity of like-minded men who truly enjoy hanging out together. We’re just as likely to grab a workout, meal, or movie as we are to hang at a bar, event or play space. We like each other, we grow together and we support one another.

>

Gear

We are attracted to masculine fetish attire and we like to wear it. We don’t, however, have a specific dress code or door policy. We are leathermen and rubbermen and skinheads and skater punks and pups and athletes and MMA fighters and more. We embrace the broadest spectrum of gear and welcome whatever attire connects with your body, mind and spirit.

>

Education

We want to learn more about being kinky players. We seek out hands-on learning experiences from both our brothers and other experts in our community. We don’t pretend to know all that there is to know, but we endeavor to be a leading kinky resource for other gay men and for our city.

>

Play

We are men who play. Sex is an important part of our lives, and we love to have it in and out of gear. We actively foster opportunities for men to engage in play and support the events and venues at which play occurs.

>

Pride

We are proud to be fetish players and embrace our nature without shame. We celebrate our brotherhood and our diversity. We share our pride through our activities and events.

What We’re Not About

It’s probably just as important to say what we don’t stand for:

>

Complexity

We have many fetishes, but none for complicated bylaws and procedures. We do not use Roberts Rules of Order to conduct business. We don’t have officers—we have organizers. And anyone can step up to organize something!

>

Fundraising

Our organization is a not-for-profit which supports our community through social and educational activities. We do not raise money for charity or make philanthropic grants, though we may sometimes lend support to other organizations which do.

>

Politics

We do not play politics in our own organization, nor do we worry about the politics or policies of other fetish organizations. We do not do things just to be politically correct.

But Above All

We have fun! We gather because we enjoy hanging out together and learning more about gear and play! We actively seek out opportunities to incorporate fun into everything we do. If being part of our brotherhood is no longer fun, we shall either fix it or disband.

So What Do You Think?

What do you think about our ideas? Is there something you’d add or change? Make a comment!

    Thanks, we have needed this for so long, I have met so many men who want to learn more about various fetish areas, kink, and to have a good time with others who are like minded, this is great!

    If I can help in any way let me know, I am hoping that this will bring men from every area of out fetish community together and that in this environment of freedom they will find the release and action they crave.,

  3. Ken01-25-2012

    Thanks guys! I’ll make sure to let you know ways you can help. Right now the best way is to tell others about on February 9 launch. You can do that by sending them here or to our event page on Facebook!

    Great vision! I give it many likes! I intend to be at the event on the 9th barring any work conflicts.

    On a side note, I love the look and feel of this site. Good Job!

  7. Ron Arden02-04-2012

    Our site looks great. It is something we fetish men can be proud of. An organization of like minded guys with similar interests with no complicated by-laws and rules! Can’t wait for yur first meeting which I know will be the first of many!

    Sounds like something that is much needed and will benefit the community in Palm Springs. Sorry that I was in Colorado for the first gathering…but hope to be of support in the future..

    For Guys like me who want to explore the Camaraderie of Masculine fetishes, we are limited to maybe another Big Bearish Muscle buddy who takes interests to us at the gym, We don’t ever get satisfied in the local gay scene or specialized sites, We are the Branch Warren type o muscled guys who want Man contact on a level thats as intense as our dedication to lifting, But the so called Muscle bears fall short of knowing what i want done to me and if i speak it they assume I’m some BDSM freak, The guy that going to satisfy doesn’tME have to be a Big of Brute as I am he just needs to know what I need done to me

    I think this could a good group of guys for me to join.

Brotherhood. Gear. Education. Play. Pride.
