“Feeling kinky is my soul while wearing fetish gear is my life blood” by Steve, Mr GEARED IRELAND 2016
I have always explored my love for all things kinky. As a child of the 1980s I was very much influenced by Superheroes like Superman, Batman, Spiderman, He-Man all showing nicely shaped male forms in tight figure hugging material. Especially Christopher Reeve’s bulging crotch showing through the tight spandex suit he wore, this made me love the bulging male crotch.
In my late teens I got a computer and the fetish world really opened up for me; I was introduced to websites such as Gaydar, Gearfetish, M4Mkink, Spandex Party etc. that lead me to other guys who loved fetish gear, from there I arranged meet-ups and club nights at R.U.L.E. to see their gear and have some kinky fun. This also introduced me to Leather and Rubber gear. My mind was being broadened with every meeting and then in August 2012 I moved to Manchester where I became very active in the fetish community there co-founding and nurturing fetish groups such as BLUF Northwest and Manchester Leather Men which allowed fellow BLUF members and fetishmen to be themselves in a social setting.
Manchester was my home till 2015 and I attended many fetish events from Manchester Rubbermen events to UK Prides to ALERT! Club nights meeting guys and celebrating who we truly are meant to be.
Returning to Ireland recently, I attended GEARED IRELAND and I am very proud to be an active member of this amazing group of guys. Wearing the Sash this year is a huge opportunity for me to meet in the flesh with the fantastic fetish community in Ireland and internationally, help nurture the strength to climb out from the shadows while standing tall and proud of who we truly are as fetish men.
