PHOTOS: Up Close And Extremely Personal At Folsom Street Fair 2013

Leather harnesses, uniforms, whips, chains, latex, and lots and lots of skin. As per usual, it was a fetish frenzy at the 30th annual Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco last weekend. Thousands of spectators turned out for the world’s largest, burliest, bawdiest leather party, which featured everything from kinky costumes to public floggings and sadomasochism–and so much more. There were even plenty of non-homo guys, although they only appeared comfortable when clutching their “girlfriends.”
