is a sex-positive social and educational group for men in Utah with Leather, Kink, BDSM and Fetish interests since 2013. blackBOOTS hosts social events, munches, workshops/classes and an award winning bar leather gear night CODE on the SECOND FRIDAY of each month at Try-Angles in Salt Lake City all for adults only 18+

For three years in a row, 2015/2016/2017, blackBOOTS was awarded two QSaltLake Fabby Awards: Best Social Group and Best Monthly Bar Night (CODE)

blackBOOTS strives to unite the men's Leather/BDSM/Kink community through creating safe places to meet, network, learn and share experiences with other men. The curious are welcome, as well experienced kinksters. In order to help achieve our mission to help men learn, communicate more effectively and play more safely with each other, blackBOOTS has created blackBOARD, our educational program. blackBOARD hopes to create a stronger sense of fellowship and camaraderie in the Utah men’s Leather/Fetish/Kink community, foster ‘Leather’ ideals and values; and promote the core belief that BDSM play should always be Risk-Aware and Consensual. Our classes/workshops strive to help men better understand the wide varieties of physical and mental play, increase safety by improving BDSM play skills and risk assessment aptitude, refine communication/negotiation abilities, as well as encourage the proper etiquette and protocols of our Leather/BDSM culture.
