Leather daddies, bootblacks and rubber aficionados unfurled their cat o’ nine tails and enjoyed Southeast Black & Blue Weekend, including a round of title contests on Saturday at the Eagle.
It was a weekend of four kinks wrapped into one fun weekend that included a Meet & Greet on Friday, a Find Your Kink Barbecue on Saturday and four title contests later that night (photos). Yes, Atlanta’s “Dirty Boys” were out in force.
