The 2020 Folsom Street East block party, which was scheduled to take place this coming June in New York City, has been canceled, according to an email announcement sent by the organization today (March 25, 2020)
The event’s official website is here
Hey fellow prisoners, please be advised that, in an effort to help keep everyone safe and healthy during the current COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic, a number of kink/fetish groups and events — including the New York Bondage Club, the Southern California Bondage Club, LA Leather Pride and Desert Fetish Authority (home of the Palm Springs Bondage Club) — are canceling or curtailing their upcoming events.
The New York Bondage Club said they are canceling their play parties scheduled for the next two Sundays (3/15 and 3/22) and the So Cal Bondage Club said they are canceling all upcoming events, including their play party on 3/14, until further notice. Desert Fetish Authority says they are evaluating each event on a case-by-case basis.

You can expect to see a lot of bondage at Rubbout 2020 — the theme this year is “Bonding”

Official website here.
You can join the men of the New York Bondage Club tonight — and every Sunday night:
The New York Bondage Club says:
“Each week we play and have new guys coming to the party and getting into kinky fun. Some are first-time visitors, others have been there before but haven’t played, and of course many play all the time. Some come for a free massage, others to get off in the back. Some get naked, some just in underwear, and some stay dressed. You can chat at the soda bar, or get frisky around the club. Experience your fantasies. Don’t be shy, tell the guys what you want. That’s what makes the club work. See you on Sunday.”
The fine print:
“You must be over 18 years of age to come to the club and have a valid state ID in order to attend any of our parties. Please remember that no drugs or alcohol are allowed in our space.”

For those who are in Palm Springs, LeatherSex Conversations, presented by the Desert Fetish Authority, are held the first Friday of every month. On Friday, Dec. 6, 2019, Mark I. Chester will present “Street Sex Photos and Other Perversions,” which is described by organizers as 40-plus years of images from San Francisco’s gay radical sex underground.
“Mark I. Chester’s work work is politically provocative, artistically taboo and socially conscious,” an announcement from the Desert Fetish Authority says. “In documenting his life, Mark has also documented these tumultuous times in San Francisco, giving a glimpse of the people and times that we have lived through. One focus of this presentation will be Mark’s new project, Street Sex Photos, which documents gay men being sexual on the streets of South of Market in San Francisco.”
The presentation will take place Friday, Dec. 6, 2019, from 7-9 p.m. at the LGBT Center of the Desert. It’s not to be missed, if you are in Palm Springs!

If you are in Berlin, you might want to check out a presentation, “Hojojutsu, the warrior’s art of the rope,” taking place on Saturday, Dec. 7, from 7 to 8:30 pm at the Samurai Art Museum.
Quote: “Using hemp ropes, Hojojutsu taught soldiers and policemen how to tie up and control prisoners during arrest, transport, capture and interrogation. In medieval Japan, where ropes symbolized a connection between the material and spiritual realms, hundreds of aesthetically refined rope-tying techniques thus came to be developed and respected not only the religious beliefs of the times, but also took into account the Confucian sub-division of society into castes.”
Then, on Sunday, Dec. 8, Yanagi Berlin will host a “practical introduction” to Hojojutsu with author Christian Russo, author of a book on the subject:
