Palm Springs Leather Pride needs you!

We're looking for volunteers to help make the weekend happen. When you give a few hours over the course of the weekend, we show our gratitude with free admission to all of the weekend events (except the dinner and the play party) and a volunteer t-shirt.

It's a great way to meet people and enjoy the weekend, especially if your budget is tight right now. You can sign up through the website (

Leather Pride is Halloween Weekend, October 29-November 1.

The Magister Circle Returns

Another cycle of the Magister Circle is beginning.

The intention of the Magister Circle is a different way of doing BDSM education based on two premises. First: that we all have something in our own experience to enrich the experience of others; and second: that the best way to share and learn is in a small group with other men with whom you are comfortable.

Each circle is composed of eight or fewer men. We meet once a month for six months, December through May. Ideally, at each meeting, each man is given the opportunity to demonstrate or talk about some aspect of BDSM. By way of example, men in previous cycles have explored candle wax, electricity, urethral sounding and catheters, vac sacks, bondage, and flogging. However, there is no set format and the group is yours. In the last cycle, a (very) special guest was brought in who was not part of the circle to demonstrate scrotal inflation at the request of the members.

If you would like to participate, please send an email to Let us know a little bit about you, your interest, and your experience. Also--very important--During the months of December through May, please list any week nights or weekend days that would not work for you.

For example, if you work every Sunday or bowl every Monday night, then Sunday during the day and Monday night would be a no for you. And, if you plan on going on a cruise the third week of March, list that, too.

Hopefully, there will be a regular evening or weekend afternoon that will work for everyone for all six months, so instead of remembering six dates we’ll just have to remember “the second Tuesday of the month” for the duration of the circle.
