Wednesday–Saturday, August 15–18
FistingFist Fest
Murphy’s Circle (Guerneville, CA) / $109 ($30 per day pass for Friday and Saturday)
If you’re kinky, or even if you’re not sure yet, come and join us.  We are a friendly bunch. Don’t worry about what you’re wearing either.  Whether you’re into leather, rubber, latex, fetish gear or you’re just a “jeans n’ T-shirt” kinda guy, it simply doesn’t matter.  It’s you that matters and you we want to see at our event.  It’s not about what you wear — hell, many men are naked all weekend.  It’s not about your body type or age, or even your level of experience.  It’s not about BDSM (bondage, discipline and sadomasochism) or leather or gear.  This is a weekend specifically for and by men who are into butts,holes, and hands (and other related stuff).  So leave your friends who faint at the thought of sticking a hand up someone’s butt at home!  If you’re into assplay, this is the weekend for you.
Wednesday–Monday, August 15–20
BearsKamp Kodiak
Miller River Group Camp (near Skykomish, WA) / $50 (or $15 per night)
The Northwest Bears have reserved the Miller River Group Camp for five consecutive nights in the summer of 2018.  The Miller River Group Camp is a tranquil, forested campground on the banks of the Miller River in the Cascade Mountains outside of Skykomish, Washington.  This will be our 27th annual Kamp Kodiak, one of the Northwest Bears’ longest-running traditions, with some of our members attending annually since the event’s inception in the early 1990s.  New, returning, and existing members from Washington, out of state, or anywhere in the world are welcome to join us for all or any portion of Kamp Kodiak.  Whether it’s sunbathing in the nude by the riverbank or reading in the cool shade of the tall trees, hiking with a small group up to nearby Lake Dorothy, or sitting around the campfire visiting with friends old and new, each Kamper gets a chance to create his own paradise.  Many of us wouldn’t miss Kamp Kodiak for anything, and we return year after year, some travelling in from out of state, just for another chance to connect with each other in this idyllic natural setting.

WorkshopAll The Demos!
Private location in Seattle, 7:00–10:00 pm / $35 (buy in advance)
Presented by Max.  This is a highly interactive event, mostly comprised of demos on attendee volunteers.  It provides a safe and informal space to observe, experience, learn, and discuss a number of kink activities.  After a brief introduction covering scene dynamics, negotiation and safety, volunteers have opportunities to bottom to Max for demos which may include: 
• Rope bondage
• Electrical toys — violet wands, TENS/ErosTek, stun guns and zappers
• Needles / temporary piercing
• Pressure points
• Floggers
• Singletail whips
• Canes
• D/S and service dynamics
• Leather & metal bondage (including hoods)
• Cages
• Erotic hypnosis
Each demo will include some time for a debrief and Q&A.  This is a great workshop for anyone curious about kink, as it’s an unusual opportunity to see many different types of play up close and personal.  It’s also valuable for more experienced kinksters who would like to see a professional demonstration.  And it’s a great opportunity to meet Max and to do a demo scene with him, of course.  This workshop assumes no previous experience, and is appropriate for all genders and orientations.  You can bring a partner or a group of friends, but coming alone is completely comfortable and appropriate.  If you miss this workshop or want a deeper experience, Max also offers private instruction for bondage and many other BDSM techniques.  Class size is limited and preregistration is required.

WorkshopWorkshop: Demystifying STIs and Safer Sex
Ballard Public Library Meeting Room (5614 22nd Ave NW Seattle), 6:30–7:30 pm / Free
Whether you’re new to sex or jumping back into dating, having good information about sex and the related health concerns is important.  What is Safer Sex and how can we make it fun and easy to incorporate into our romantic and playful encounters?  Prepare to learn: how to decide what Safer Sex protocols are for you; an overview of available supplies (as well as how to make your own in emergencies); when and how to easily bring up “the talk”; and how to make Safer Sex sexy!  We will focus on solid facts about Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) and dispelling the stigmas that are often attached to these infections so you can make informed and rational decisions regarding your health.  All sexes, genders, ethnicities, sexual orientations, relationship orientations welcome and celebrated.  Attendance is limited to 40 people.
Occurs bi-monthly: February, April, June, August, October, December.
QueerPDX Queer Munch
Radio Room (1101 NE Alberta, Portland), 6:30–8:30 pm
This munch is for anyone who identifies as queer and their partners.  By queer, we mean gay men, lesbians, fags, dykes, bisexuals, pansexuals, and polysexuals along with transfolk, those who are genderqueer, gender flexible, gender fluid, and gender fuckers.  If the word queer feels like home for part of you or all of you, you are welcome.  And when we say “partner” we mean everything from play partners to life partners.  The Portland Queer Munch will happen every month on the first or second Thursday (depending on scheduling options).
The space is wheelchair accessible and the menu has lots of vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options (and all clearly labeled!).  There is plenty of free street parking and the 72 bus will drop you off within a block of The Radio Room.  The munch will meet on the main floor instead of in the lounge areas so that we won’t be limited to 21+.  This does mean that we can’t be too demonstrative about our kink so as not to scare off their other patrons, but the venue is completely aware of what our group is about and is happy to have us there!  Please buy something to support the venue so that they’ll keep having us back.  They do know that not everyone will be ordering food/eating full meals, but please do get a drink or a snack.  Bottomless coffee is $2, and an order of fries is $3, to give you an idea of the prices.

This information is aimed especially at the Seattle gay male leather community.  Some events are included which might be seen as non-gay, non-male, and/or non-leather; they are included due to the perceived breadth of people who may visit this web page and the crossover nature of events of those types with the gay male leather community.
About Out-of-Town Events: These events are listed below a green line for each date, and include both events throughout the Pacific Northwest (Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and British Columbia) and larger-scope national events (especially those which will be attended by some members of Seattle Men in Leather).  For out-of-Seattle events, we typically only list the most prominent ones (socials, board meetings, and the like).  Activity listings for those groups and those regions may provide a broader listings of events.
About Bear, Rodeo, CW Dance, etc., Events: As above, we pick and choose which of these events to include.  All Seattle-area events are included, but only prominent regional and national events are listed.  (As a rule of thumb, we list board meetings and events at leather bars, but not munches, non-leather dances, etc.)  Activity listings for those groups and those regions may provide a broader listings of events.
About Pansexual and Workshop Events: Also included in the calendar are a selection of events primarily aimed at the kinky straight or pansexual community, but appropriate for or welcoming of gay male (and GLBTQ) leatherfolk. Typically, these are workshops which are not specifically heterosexually themed, but a fewplay parties and weekend events are also included where appropriate. Keeping in mind the gay male leather intent behind this calendar, we list events which have an obvious attraction for and are clearly welcoming of the gay male leather crowd.  (Many “pansexual” events really have nothing to recommend them to gay male leatherfolk: we might not be turned away, but why would we attend?)  Decisions about what to list are informed by the text and imagery of websites and event announcements; if you feel that your event truly should be of interest to gay male leatherfolk and is not currently being listed, please contact us (and check the text and imagery you make available).

Send your event details to us. We will try to list all leather/fetish events expected to be of interest to the GLBTQ leather community, including both one-time events and recurring ones.  Include the event name, date, time, location, cost for the event, and contact info, plus a short description if available.  Deadline for sending items to be included in the weekly e-mail version of the calendar is Monday at 6:00 pm (Pacific time).  Items and corrections provided at other times will be inserted into the online calendar as they are received (and as we have time).
Disclaimer #1: SoundsKinky is not responsible for either the events listed here nor for the accuracy of the information included.  We apologize if we fail to include your event, but we’re only human.  Sometimes events, vacations, work, and life get in the way.  And you darn well better get it to us before the deadline if you want it in the listings!
Disclaimer #2: Seattle Men in Leather (SML) includes events from other organizations on this list as a service to the community.  Only events which are specifically hosted by Seattle Men in Leather qualify for the SML activity rewards program.
