Jerry
10/1983

Jerry was the sometimes gay and sometimes bi bondage guy who started the San Francisco Bondage Club and ran it for years.  This photograph was actually done in the basement of Alexis (whose portrait is part of this show also) who had also been burnt out during the Folsom St. Fair.  He and his friend Jerry roomed together, and they had turned their entire basement into a dungeon.  It was small and cramped with low ceilings and jam packed with gear.  Alexis and Jerry both belonged to the 15 Association, a gay male sm play group, which also met for a monthly party in Alex's basement.
