This Week: DFA at Hunters

It’s the third Thursday of the month, which means that it's time for our DFA Night at Hunters. Don't forget the new time: 8-10 pm. And don't forget our extra special deal: wear your DFA tee or pick up a DFA tag at the door and get Happy Hour drink prices all night long!

There’s no particular theme this time around, so just gear up and enjoy a good time with your DFA brothers.

Kink Exploratorium 4: Mummification

New Date!

We really goofed when we first publicized this one. We had the wrong email address for RSVP's, so we never heard from all the guys who wanted to attend! This event has now been rescheduled for Sunday, November 24 at 2 pm. Get all the details, including the correct place to RSVP, below!


About the Session

We will provide hands-on experience in mummification using materials that are easy to obtain and use. This is a form of bondage in which the bottom experiences the full restriction of being wrapped, but has the option to break out at any time. The kind of experience the bottom has once wrapped is negotiated with the top who is wrapping him.

We will demonstrate the technique of wrapping with plastic wrap and duct tape.  Given we have enough people, we will wrap anyone who wants the experience and who has brought the necessary materials. It takes at least two people to wrap one. It is best to be naked while being wrapped.


Bring Your Own Supplies

Materials you will need are: at least 100 feet of plastic wrap, 50 feet of duct tape, four wash cloths, blindfold or a mask, ear plugs, safety scissors, massage table or some place to be laid down comfortably, sheet and pillow if you need one.


The Details

This Mummification Workshop will be held on Sunday, November 24 at 2 pm. The location is the Desert Center for Sexuality Awareness, 71777 San Jacinto Drive Suite 204, Rancho Mirage. The Center is located next door to Planned Parenthood, just west of The River. Your instructor is Nick Tancredi.



Due to limited space, you must RSVP to attend. Please message Nick at to see if there's still room!

Pride Week Erotic Reading

The tradition continues! Once again Alex Ironrod offers the premiere reading of his latest BDSM mystery at Gear Leather & Fetish as a salute to Palm Springs’ Leather Pride and Gay Pride Weekends. This year, the free in-store event will be at 6 pm on Wednesday, November 6. After the reading, Alex will chat with the audience and sign copies of his books. (Books will also be for sale. Please bring cash!)

LEATHER DAYS is Alex’s second novel involving two young LAPD homicide detectives - Mark Farrell and Dan Fortunato. They are both professional police partners and private gay men trying to sort out their complicated personal BDSM relationship.

This time a gay body-builder is found dead – naked, roped and raped in his LA apartment. Is it an accident, suicide or murder?

In the fast world of television stars, high-priced lawyers and sadistic wealthy businessmen, the two detectives try to solve the vicious sex murder involving some of their old enemies in Group7 while facing challenges to their own evolving leather relationship. But their efforts are checked at every stage by the unknown killer, while a leather-sex weekend in New York comes at a high price.

Can Mark and Dan track down the murderous kingpin? What price must they be prepared to pay to find the answers to their case and also to their own desires?

Join us for a clue or two, plus lots of fun and fellowship!
