Biography

blackBOOTS, a sex-positive group for Utah men with Leather/Kink/BDSM/Fetish interests.

blackBOOTS hosts social events, munches, workshops/classes and an award winning bar leather gear night CODE on the FOURTH FRIDAY of each month at Try-Angles in Salt Lake City.

blackBOOTS strives to unite the men’s Leather/BDSM/Kink community through creating safe places to meet, network, learn and share experiences with other men. The curious are welcome, as well experienced kinksters.

In order to help achieve our mission to help men learn, communicate more effectively and play more safely with each other, blackBOOTS has created blackBOARD, our educational program.  blackBOARD hopes to create a stronger sense of fellowship and camaraderie in the Utah men’s Leather/Fetish/Kink community, foster ‘Leather’ ideals and values; and promote the core belief that BDSM play should always be Risk-Aware and Consensual.  Our classes/workshops strive to help men better understand the wide varieties of physical and mental play, increase safety by improving BDSM play skills and risk assessment aptitude, refine communication/negotiation abilities, as well as encourage the proper etiquette and protocols of our Leather/BDSM culture.

What are the different types of events that blackBOOTS hosts and how do you get invited to a blackBOOTS event or class?
