ADVERTISMENT

So, what are you wearing this weekend? Straps? Chaps? Drag? A bag? It seems some kinky folks get more creative each year, from cosplay to animal fetish fun. You can check out all the kinky leathery events going on this week in our newly merged BARtab weekly section, which includes Leather columnist Scott Brogan's expanded rundown of kinktastic events, as well as On the Town columnist Donna Sachet, and John F. Karr's saucy porn review.

For now, here at Out & About, we remain a tad vanilla, if not a bit skittish about the Folsom-fest. The possibility of once again viewing a dom dressed like a giraffe flogging a sub dressed like a Smurf is... Not that there's anything wrong with that. It's just... different.

For some, funny costumes can be a turn-on, if you know there's a hunk or babe underneath. As a kid, Creature From the Black Lagoon fascinated me so much, it was one of my first handmade monster masks. Now, if I'd only known that the guy under the suit was hunky stunt man Ricou Browning, I would have had an even greater appreciation of his talent.

Whether you enjoy your thrills in the cinema or the sin-ematic streets, have fun, and dress up, or down, however you like. You can dress like a dog or a baby. Just don't bring any real dogs or babies, mm-kay?
