Clothespins, clips and clamps are great BDSM toys. Innocent looking and fun for beginners, they can also bring down the heaviest bottom with their ability to cause excruciating pain. You can put them on others, put them on yourself, even direct others to use them on you. And they double your pleasure, because they hurt both when they are put on, and when they come off.

This class will explain various types of clothespins and clamps, how and where to put them on and take them off, their potential dangers and how to use clips and clamps safely, and the always-evil clothespin zippers. There will be plenty of hands-on demos!

Presented by Rio, Marilyn, and Simcha.


Rio is a butch leatherdyke, a hopeless romantic, and a masochistic slave who’s obsessed with service. She was Ms. San Francisco Sober Leather 2016, and the female Leather Marshall at the 2015 San Francisco Pride Parade. She currently serves as an officer of the Exiles, is an organizational director of the San Francisco Bay Area Leather Alliance, and is on the Board of the Friends of Eagle Plaza. Feeding her passion for both education and exhibitionism, she has presented at Folsom Street’s Playground, the Northwest Leather Celebration, Southeast Leatherfest, and at numerous regional events. She also demo bottoms across the country, usually under the hands of her sadistic Mistress, Marilyn.

Marilyn has been active in the San Francisco Leather/BDSM community since 1986. She is a sadist, a bitch, and a mistress. She likes to play hard and has a special affection for slut masochists. Marilyn was a member of the Outcasts and a charter member of the Exiles, and has spent many years as an Exiles officer. She has presented at International Ms. Leather, Foundations, Leather Leadership Conference, Northwest Leather Celebration, Southeast Leatherfest, Sin in the City, Dark Odyssey: Surrender, San Francisco State, Leather Traditions, Black Rose, Venus’ Playground, Leather Levi Weekend, SF Citadel, Butch Voices, The Group In Fresno, and the Exiles. She loves her leather family which includes her slave and her boi. In her vanilla life she is a computer professional with two queer adult children, and is a Trustee at her synagogue.

Simcha has been active in the Leather/BDSM community since 2014. She found the community a little later in life but jumped in with both feet to make up for lost time and knew she had found where she belongs. Simcha identifies as a leather dyke, slave boi, feminist, masochistic slut, romantic and is very happy when being dominated by a fierce femme domme. She likes to play very hard, have her boundaries pushed, and loves being in service to her Ma’am, especially as her demo bottom. She is polyamorous in a leather family that includes her beautifully sadistic Ma’am and Ma’am’s slave. Simcha is an Exiles officer, and has been the assistant producer of the Ms. SF Leather contest for several years. She has taught at Sin in the City, Foundations, FLAG, Southeast LeatherFest, IMsLBB and the Exiles. She is a member of Mama’s Family as "Mama’s Naughti Boi". She has taught throughout her professional career, and is an award-winning trainer.
