onward christian leathermen

Nerve has an interesting article this morning about some gay Christian leathermen in Los Angeles:

This is Skip Chasey's leather playroom. More yoga studio than dungeon, it perfectly encapsulates his multilayered identity as an openly gay Christian leatherman. The contents of the room signify no mere hobby: there is a St. Andrew's cross with leather straps, and a "puppy" cage, big enough to contain a few crouching people. An infrared camera - not used very much, Chasey notes - is poised in the corner near the ceiling. Butt plugs and cock rings are discreetly tucked away in cabinets. For Chasey and Tim Hamilton - "Master Skip" and "Pup Tim" to each other and the leather community - the room is "sacred space."

A pretty good read, and if nothing else, it’ll take you one step closer to having seen everything.
