Dore Alley | Dore Alley at Folsom Street, San Francisco, CA
This is no indie hipster fair with hand-knit scarves, folk music or a baked goods; the 2014 Up Your Alley Fair is full of vendors to satisfy your needs – so long as it’s bondage, animal role play, kink, leather straps, whips, paddles, latex outfits or suspension.
In their own words, you won’t find a filthier event in the States. If you’re into it, there’s a scene for you.
