September 2014 Growing Pains

Folsom Street Fair 2014 - Sunday Sept 21, 11am

It's the most wonderful time of the year - the High Holy Days of Leather in SF.

On Sunday, September 21, a few hundred thousand kinky leatherfolk and curious tourists descend on a few blocks South of Market in SF for a day of fellowship, outreach, and of course, the hot, sexy fun that is the Folsom Street Fair.

Janus will be once again putting its best face (and other sexy body parts) forward at a booth on 11th between Folsom and Harrison. Yes, we now have our own street!

We encourage members to come out and participate.

BDSM Must Haves For Any Relationship

Whether you're new to BDSM or have been part of a slave/master relationship for years, you must be properly prepared to get down and dirty when you play.

Even couples that are only interested in adding a touch of it to their bedroom routines can benefit from learning about the necessary toys. Read more...

About the Program

SOJ Picnic was August 16, a SATURDAY!

Today's picnic in Golden Gate Park was a huge success!

Our thanks to SFTNG for co-hosting; we saw lots of old friends and made lots of new ones.


Summer time fun in the sun (hopefully) in Golden Gate Park! EVERYONE IS WELCOME, you DON'T need to be an SOJ member.

If you can, bring food for a dozen or so to share. If your finances are tight, I'm sure that there will be food to share. Make new kinky friends or visit with old ones. It's always amazing to see who comes. We'll be playing games (kinda naughty ones too) too.

Lots of details at on Fetlife
