Folsom Street Fair 2012 - September 23rd

The Folsom Street Fair is one of the many events that make San Francisco such a wonderful place. This year will be my 18th annual.  I discovered the Folsom Street Fair by accident in 1995. I was standing on the corner outside of Bondage-A-Go-Go and I saw a flyer. How funny is that? One of the biggest fetish events right there in my own city and found about it from a piece of paper on a powerpole.
It was a lot of fun though. There is something for everyone. It is a truly wild event. It's the largest street fetish fair in the world. The fair is is five long blocks. It is on Folsom Street between 7th and 12th streets. It lasts from 11am to 6pm.
The weather can vary quite a bit. Most years it is clear and warm to downright Hot (SF standards for hot is 75 degrees). It often rains. Both rain and heat keep the big crowds away. The fair is only a few weeks after Burning Man and many of the boots are still covered with playa dust. The playa tastes great and the smell makes you feel as if you are still in the desert.
Of coarse, I go for the knee-high boots and there are Millions of them! I have been known to kiss over 50 girls knee high boots in 7 short hours. It is one of the most open events I've ever attended. Ironically, I have been photographed thousands of times at the fair kissing knee high boots, but I have only a few of them! If you have a photo of me kissing a woman's boots, please share it with the 'Nation. 
Two years ago, I ran into some friends and we ended up going out to eat afterward. I didn't have any cash on me at the time and my friend Adam kindly picked up my tab. Last year, I saw him said hello and handed him a $20. Adam is someone I go way back with to the early days of Bondage-A-Go-Go. It's always great to see him and so many other friends. 
Whatever your fetish, Folsom Street Fair has it for you. Knee-high boots, feet, shoes, socks, whipping, etc. The whole week leading up to Folsom Street is called Leather Week. Bondage-A-Go-Go is alive with excitement leading up to the fair and the night before is one big party.
Below is a picture of me kissing a woman's knee high boots at the 2006 fair. By the way, notice the placement of hands, very close to my body and Far from the girls boots. Posture speaks volumes, even when kissing boots. Also, I try to keep most of my body lower than the top of her boots. This is a very odedient position. These girls know they are in charge and can kick me whenever They want. Chicks like power, that's why they put on knee high boots!
