Message from the Chairman

Hello Brothers,

WOW, what an amazing Dore weekend! Many of our club brothers from near and far remarked at the energy at the party. Some said it was the best party we’ve had in years. There were a wide variety of kinks, ages, and types of play represented. Every square inch was being used in some twisted way. Many people remarked at our use of ambassadors, and we will continue that practice and work to make them even more visible and approachable.

We followed up our party with a huge outdoor dungeon at the Up Your Alley fair on Sunday. Taking up almost a quarter of a block with crosses, tables and spanking benches, there was non-stop play for our brothers as well as a place for all of the fair-goers. Our booth has become a real staple of the fair, and Folsom Street Events is vary pleased with us bringing visible, proudly out in the open, BDSM to Dore Alley.

Probably the most important part of the weekend is the number of men who are becoming interested in joining our club based on the play and brotherhood we demonstrated. Thank you to everyone who showed our guests a good time!

This month, for those who aren’t on an August vacation, our party will have a return of the SF Grapplers demonstrating some very HOT wrestling in the dungeon. There will still be plenty of places to play, if you aren’t distracted by hot sweaty men in wrestling singlets.

Get your ticket now for The 15 Association’s Pre-Folsom Play Party! Members are encouraged to purchase their ticket now for The 15 Association’s Saturday Play Party! Tickets are Pre-Sale ONLY, no tickets will be sold at the door and are limited in number. We sold out for Dore Alley Saturday, which is a smaller event. Guests will have an opportunity to purchase their tickets as of Sept 1st.

Wrestling Demo at the August Party

Wrestling Demo at August Party

SF Grapplers are coming to The 15 Association Play Party to show the fun of wrestling. Whether competitive, sensual, or erotic, the body contact and strain of muscle-vs.-muscle can leave the question of who is Dominant and who is submissive to be determined on the mats! Bring your singlet, speedo, spandex, or jockstrap, or any sports gear, really, and discover the fun of wrestling.

Not interested in wrestling? We will have all of our usual filthy, sadistic activities going on too!

More information about the men’s wrestling group SF Grapplers can be found at facebook.com/sfgrapplers.
