Manimal @ Beaux – Oct. 17, 2014

Manimal @ Beaux

October 17, 2014 Andrew Christian model Murray Swanby and adult star Ryan Rose were the special guests at this edition of Manimal, the Friday night party at Beaux in the Castro. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to stay long enough for the midnight “strip down,” where the hosts planned to strip selected guests down to their skivvies. But we got a few go-go boy pics before it was time to leave. [Show slideshow]

Balls Out Ball 2008

Full Monty Strip Show

April 26, 2008 In April of 2008, the SF Fog gay and gay-friendly rugby team had their third (and final) Balls Out Ball, an annual fundraiser to help the team raise funds to go to the Bingham Cup. The fundraiser was held at Danz Haus. It was emceed by Trauma Flintstone with Fernando and Greg the Gay Sportscaster, and featured a comedienne and bachelor date auctions. But the big draw was the rugby boys’ full monty strip show. Eight of the guys in jeans, white collar shirts, and ties (but barefoot) got on stage, dragging four people from the audience … Continue reading

2014 Castro Street Fair – Part 2

The cast of the Monster Show's performances at the 2014 Castro Street Fair.

October 5, 2014 We just posted nearly 200 photos and a few videos from the 2014 Castro Street Fair, the neighborhood festival that Harvey Milk founded in 1974. (Read this for more about the history of the Castro Street Fair.) One of the big productions on the Main Stage was a medley of numbers from the Monster Show, the now-weekly drag show hosted and organized by Cookie Dough that started off at Harvey’s and is now every Thursday at the Edge. They did two sets with different performances in each, but we only have videos — eight of them! — from … Continue reading

2014 Castro Street Fair – Part 1

The streets were packed at the 2014 Castro Street Fair.

October 5, 2014 Last Sunday was the 41st annual Castro Street Fair, San Francisco’s longest-running street fair founded by Harvey Milk in 1974. (Read this brief history of the Castro Street Fair for more.) Market Street was blocked off down to Noe, Castro was blocked off to 19th, and 18th Street was blocked off for a few blocks going east and west of Castro. The Main Stage on Market at Castro & 17th was hosted by drag queens Honey Mahogany (season 5 contestant on RuPaul’s Drag Race) and by Vivienne Forevermore. We got photos and videos of Rory Davis and Monica … Continue reading

The Crib – April 24, 2008

Contestant in the Crib's male amateur strip contest dancing in just his undies.

April 24, 2008 For many years, Gus Presents held a weekly Thursday night party 715 Harrison called The Crib — notable because it was one of the few bar parties that were open to guests 18 and over. (Guests who were 21 or older received a wristband to alert bartenders that they had been carded and could purchase alcohol.) Many guests — guys and girls alike — went to the balcony where they could strip down to their underwear to dance above the crowd. And this night, this big draw was the male amateur strip contest. Guys danced before the … Continue reading

2014 Folsom Street Fair – Part 6

Performance artists at the Folsom Street Fair doing something that resembled Tai Chi (a little bit) wearing stilettos and nothing else.

September 21, 2014 Last set of photos from the 2014 Folsom Street Fair. (We’ve posted 965 photos taken at the fair, and that doesn’t even count the ones we’ll post later of the Castro after the fair.) In this last set: more people getting spanked, paddled, and flogged at the Spanking Booth. Performance artists — male and female — doing something that looked a bit like tai chi wearing stilettos and nothing else. The play pen for adult babies. And lots and lots of cute guys. Shirtless. Flip-flops. Underwear. Jockstraps. And some cute guys that went full cock-and-balls-out naked. History of … Continue reading

2014 Folsom Street Fair – Part 5

A clusterfuck of guys in jockstraps (and less) playing Naked Twister at the 2014 Folsom Street Fair.

September 21, 2014 More cute guys at the 2014 Folsom Street Fair. Some shirtless. Some in underwear. Many in jockstraps. One even briefly took off his jockstrap as I was passing by (yes, peen). Spent some time at Steamworks’ Naked Twister booth. There’s no spinner at this Twister game. The barker calls out whatever he damn well wants, and it’s certainly not limited to a hand or foot on a colored dot. Pro tip: if you decide to play Twister while wearing a kilt with nothing on underneath, you will be exposed. It’s like a Universal Law of Nature. The Law … Continue reading

2014 Folsom Street Fair – Part 4

Stripped nearly naked for a public flogging at the 2014 Folsom Street Fair.

September 21, 2014 More time at the spanking booths for this fourth of six parts of our photographic recap of the 2014 Folsom Street Fair, where tons of cute guys stripped down to their underwear, jockstraps, and even totally naked to get spanked and flogged in public. I guess we spent a lot of time at the flogging booth this year; every time we were about to meander on, another cute guy would go up to get spanked, and we just had to wait to see just how undressed he would get for his corporal punishment. History of the Folsom Street … Continue reading

2014 Folsom Street Fair – Part 3

Somehow this guy's girlfriend persuaded up to get strapped down for a bare ass spanking at the Folsom Street Fair.

September 21, 2014 So much going on at the 2014 Folsom Street Fair! In our third of six posts (with nearly a thousand photos!) we have photos from Steamworks’ Naked Twister, some nude (except for high heels) performance art, more spankings and floggings, and a totally naked guy caged up. One of the guys playing Naked Twister in this set actually got completely naked. Also in this set: a straight guy is persuaded by his girlfriend to receive a bare-ass spanking. History of the Folsom Street Fair Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5 … Continue reading
