Dear Friends,

i put this list together after meeting some wonderful people at Sampler in October, who live in the Inland Empire and
wanted to know where to go, what to do, how to meet folks, etc. After looking for one central place where all this info
resided, i quickly found out that there is no such place and that the info was scattered over several yahoo groups. i do
need to mention however that nearly 60% of the events below were listed on

Since i needed to compile the info anyway, i thought ... why not share it? But where to put it? Sadly, several yahoo
groups do not allow members to create files, so i decided to use my free blog here on In addition to
monthly events in the Inland Empire, i also added MAJOR ANNUAL EVENTS in the cities of Los Angeles, San Diego
and Phoenix, as all are within only a 4 hour drive.

i hope this page helps those who are looking to connect with other bdsm & leather folk in the Inland Empire (ie: Apple
Valley, Banning, Barstow, Coachella, Desert Hot Springs, Fontana, Hemet, Hesperia, Indio, Moreno Valley, Ontario,
Palm Springs, Riverside, San Bernardino, Temecula, Upland, etc)

In loving service,

*West Coast Rubber Weekend

guys into rubber. Latex, hazmat, pvc, spandex, lycra, superhero, dive - all the really, really good stuff is happening
at WCR. The 4-day event kicked off the first time over the Labor Day weekend in 2005. It's been a different kind
of event from the very beginning. Yeah, there are some hot bar events but mostly the weekend is about hanging
out in gear, in the pool or in the slime pit, at dinner or at the play party. A weekend of gear and guys in to gear.
The play possibilities alone are impressive! (The event is attended almost exclusively by gay leathermen and a
few events are closed to women).

OCLA Sampler
At a Clothing Optional Resort
Come Play, Explore & Get Naked in the Desert! Taking place at a clothing-optional resort in Palm Springs, Sampler
is a weekend event for experts and novices alike and is the originator of the "1-on-1" sessions concept. Instead of
attending group workshops all weekend (we do have a few though!), attendees 'sample' BDSM related play and
concepts 1-on-1 with noted authorities in BDSM & Leather. Sampler draws people of all gender identities and
sexual orientations and is kept small (under 90 registrants) to allow each attendee the unique opportunity for a
minimum of two 1-on-1 sessions with our recognized experts. Whether you want to advance your skill levels
beyond where they are, try new kinks as a Top or bottom, or pick the brain of (or experience an SM session with!)
a noted authority in S/M or Leather, Sampler is for you! (A fun relaxed weekend. Good mix of het/gay. Offers a beautiful
sense of community).
