2008 Up Your Alley Fair

Steamworks' Naked Twister game at the 2008 Up Your Alley Fair in San Francisco.

July 27, 2008 In 2008, it was a rather overcast day for the Up Your Alley Fair, also known informally as the Dore Alley Fair. That didn’t stop people from stripping down for various kinky, BDSM-themed shenanigans. That particular year, I seem to have spent most of my time at Steamworks’ Naked Twister game. Many guys played fully dressed, but lots were in underwear, towels, jockstraps, or completely naked. [Show slideshow] 1234789►

Boy Bar – July 18, 2008

Go-go boy at The Cafe in San Francisco.

July 18, 2008 There was an adorable new jockstrapped go-go boy at this week’s Boy Bar, the Friday night party that Gus Presents throws at The Cafe. Sadly, I never saw him again. Always wondered if he danced that one time as a lark, or was a regular dancer who happened to be traveling through or just usually danced at other parties that I missed. [Show slideshow] 123►  

Booty Call – July 16, 2008

Photo installation at Booty Call Wednesdays in San Francisco

July 16, 2008 Booty Call Wednedays — Joshua J and Juanita More’s party at the bar then known as the Bar on Castro (now QBar) is famous for their photo installation in the back. Every week there’s a new set, often designed by a guest artist, and party-goers can get their photo taken by the official Booty Call photographer. This week the photo booth was set up with a faux bed attached to the wall, complete with satin sheets, so that guests could pretend they were sleeping in bed when their picture was taken.

Lucky Pierre – July 4, 2008

After this guy lost at strip poker, he was dared to do naked push-ups on the pool table in front of everyone.

July 4, 2008 It was a sparkling Independence Day at this Fourth of July Lucky Pierre at The Stud in 2008. Artemis Chase’s drag daughter, Baby Chase-Dix, was the special guest hostess. Cute go-go boys did their thing while in the front room, Artemis dealt games of strip poker to cute guys willing to risk losing all of their clothing. Several guys wound up completely naked, and two even did dares before they were allowed to get dressed again: one did naked push-ups on the pool table after he lost while the other did naked sit-ups.

Most Popular Posts of 2014

As part of our countdown for our “Tops of 2014,” here’s our coverage of our most popular articles of the year. They’re listed in ascending order. If an article was part of a series, we’ve listed the highest-trafficked one, with the others in the series (even if they are in the top 10 in their own right) grouped with them. It’s not surprising that the ten posts that were the most popular involved a lot of nudity and other risqué antics. Notably, none of them were in the Castro. All but one were in the delightfully debaucherous South of Market … Continue reading
