The concept was looking at fetish as binding a subculture together, sometimes literally. Our interests in leather, bondage, boots and gear connect us not only sexually butĀ as a gay identity. I belong to Mark Chester's Gay Mens Sketch group where sketchers comeĀ together to draw the male nude and also erotic/fetish models.
