NP Knockout Jocks are Back!
Celebrate the Season with a few of our favorite Holiday things!
Whether you're in the locker room or the playroom, be a sexy superhero in Nasty Pig's Knockout Jock. Sold out everywhere until just recently, now they're back just in time for gift-giving. Their low rise fit, bold colors and masculine edge will please any athlete (or athletic supporter!)
Available in red, black and blue, but only in the Palm Springs store.
DungeonBeds Fetish Tees
The guys at DungeonBeds asked the artist who illustrated their super-popular Devil Tees to create a hot new fetish collection and it's only available in Southern California at Gear. Pictured above are the new Moto-Guy, Fire Fighter and Wrestler. Flag your favorite kink in a premium quality American Apparel tee! Their flattering cut and superb workmanship make them one of the best shirts you can buy, and that makes them another of our favorite things.
The World's Most Comfortable Sling
Ever since we first discovered Buddy's Slings, we knew that we had to carry them. In fact, we've never kicked back in a more comfortable sling!
Made of two layers of Marine Grade Canvas (the same material used for boat covers), they resist moisture, grease and stains and clean up easily with a simple hose-down. Two layers of seat belt webbing are fused together to create the straps which connect them to your chains or to Buddy's amazing adjustable rigging system (sold separately).
It's a super-special present for the discerning ass-player, but isn't that what the Holidays are for?
Available in red, blue, gray and army camo, and only in the Palm Springs store.

Black Friday Web Sale!!!
Thursday, November 24, 2011
We didn't make a big deal about it, but last month was our sixth anniversary as Palm Spring's store for men who play hard. A lot of businesses in our town have come and gone over that time. Some were new, like us. But many were beloved Desert institutions that no one expected would ever disappear. Because of that, we count our blessings every day.
Your wonderful support has allowed us not only to survive, but also to grow to serve you better. You inspire us. You let us share our passion for education and great sex. You make shopping and working in our store fun! It has been both a privilege and pleasure to have you in our lives, both as customers and as friends.
Thank you for six wonderful years! We wish you a fantastic Thanksgiving filled with delights and surrounded by the people that you love.
Gear will be closed Thanksgiving Day, but we'll be open our regular hours for the rest of the weekend.

Rough Trade Now at Gear!
We've always admired Rough Trade's creative and colorful leather work, but lately we've been blown away by the stunning re-creations of their original designs in sexy neoprene. Now we carry a handpicked collection of both: leather armbands, wrist cuffs, knee pads and football pants; plus neoprene pouch shorts, gauntlets, hoods and caps. We can't wait to show you this new stuff!
Rough Trade Gear is only available in our Palm Spring store--and nowhere else in Southern California besides their LA headquarters.
New Gear Tees
Every one of our Gear Tee designs has become a collectible and our 2011 version is sure to be another favorite! On the front is our Gear logotype, highlighting our Palm Springs roots. On the rear is our new red gear design. They're made of 100% super-soft combed cotton in a special cut that's super-flattering. For only $14.95, they're the perfect souvenir!
Gear Tees are only available in the Palm Springs store, but if you give us a call we can specially ship one to you.
Kinklab Neon Wand
We just love this new Neon Wand from Kinklab. Vintage versions can be fragile and dangerous in the wrong hands, but this new, lighter-weight model features durable, solid-state electronics and a maximum intensity setting that's high enough to provide excellent stimulation without being too sharp. It's also priced hundreds of dollars less than similar antique versions!
Kinklab Neon Wands have been bestsellers ever since we first introduced 'em, but we've brought in a special supply just in time for your Leather Pride shopping.

Welcome to Gay Pride!
Leather Pride Reading and Book Signing
It's a Leather Pride tradition! Kick off the celebration with Alex Ironrod, reading from his new book, Leather Nights.
Kink. Cops. Detectives. Murder in Los Angeles of a former porn star. More leather that you can strip from a stockyard, and enough spunk to coat a condominium. Fast cars and expensive bikes. A privately run underground sex-slave auction. When two members of the LAPD find themselves wrapped up in a deadly and sadistic undercover crime ring, they may find themselves in deeper than they could have imagined. Will Detectives Danny and Mark survive this case to foster their own newfound BDSM sexual relationship? And which will be Dominant and which submissive? Leather Author Alex Ironrod (Highwaymen, The Leather Masters and Slaves trilogy) again fills his pages with intrigue and hot, kinky sex. Leather Knights is one hot, sticky crime thriller.
Alex will be joined by special guest Nick Williams, who will discuss his new book "Ascent into Submission."
Books will be available for sale and signing by the authors. Please bring cash if you'd like to get one!

The Stacker, From Oxballs
You can always count on Gear to have the newest and best stuff from the nasty pigs at Oxballs. One of our very favorite new toys is The Stacker ball stretcher. They’re about an inch tall and tight enough to grip your sack no matter what size nuts you pack. Start with one. It's super stretchy, yet comfortable, like a warm hand grabbin' your balls. Then add another (or more!) for a low n' swingin' feeling.
And the fun doesn't end with your balls! The Stacker also makes a tight thick cockring too.
Stackers are made of Tech-TPR, the stretchiest material around. They’re compatible with all lubes and easy to clean. Just use detergent and warm water.
Get yours in the store or online!

Web Deal of the Week: Free Boy Butter!
Boy Butter Original is an oil-based lubricant made with two powerful, yet gentle ingredients: a coconut oil and an organic silicone blend. They're homogenized just like real butter, resulting in a luxurious personal lubricant that will last as long as any synthetic or silicone lubricants, yet washes off with water alone (from both skin and fabric!). Boy Butter Original is long lasting, hypoallergenic and is safe on all toys.
This offer will last only as long as our supplies do and is not redeemable in our store.

Look Who Dropped By!
Three little bears wandered into Gear yesterday! They're part of a great new collection of consignments that include a Fetters canvas sleep sack, authentic fraternity paddles, vintage Hiatt Darby Handcuffs, and classic books like The Leatherman's Handbook and Ties That Bind.

Summer Toy Blowout!
You've always been able to count on Gear for the Desert's biggest selection of toys at the best prices, but right now that's truer than ever!
One of our distributors just offered us some super deals, so we made a huge buy and are passing the savings on to you! We're stuffed to the rafters with a giant, new collection of butt toys, cock and ball wear, restraints, pumping devices, J/O sleeves and more at prices that can't be beat. And it's all from brands you know, like Doc Johnson, Rascal and Colt! Drop in now for the best selection. Some of this stuff will never be available at prices this low again!
The summer toy blowout is in the Palm Springs store only, but we've got special deals for our online shoppers too. Check 'em out here.
Ruff Pig Sling Stand
This sling stand is so awesome that a famous online pig store re-branded it as its own and debuted it at this year's IML—where it sold out in record time! Before that happened, however, the original product run was made available to a few select retailers (like us!) and we were able to score three. We believe that we're the only brick-and-mortar store anywhere that has any left, and when they're gone, they're most likely gone for good!
Ruff Pigs are built by kinksters in the back room of a world-famous off-road racing parts fabricator. They're made of strong, lightweight 16 gauge steel tubing that's been powder coated in sexy black, so they don't rust or tarnish like other sling frames. They're also taller than most, so you have more room to play, plus they have eight restraint points so you can also use 'em for bondage! They assemble in less than five minutes, and thanks to their tight, precision fit and adjustable feet, there's less shaking when you're ass-up and ready to get plowed!
Walk out with your very own Ruff Pig for only $299, which is WAY LESS than the online direct-shipped price.
Ruff Pigs are exclusively available in the Palm Springs store.

Bonus! Order $30 worth of merchandise and get a free Oxballs Powerball Cockring! Plus, Spend $100 and get free ground shipping in the continental U.S.

Web Deal of the Week: 20% off Cocksling/Nuttsling Combo
IML 33: Kinksters Gone Wild
At check-in, we were disconcerted to receive a letter from the hotel stating that no bare chests or butts would be tolerated in the lobby, bars or vendor market. Well I can tell you, we were pissed! One of the major reasons we attend IML is for the ability to hang out, socialize and cruise in our bar wear and if that wasn’t going to be allowed anymore, then this would be our last trip for sure.
As it turns out, it was all much ado about nothing. Apparently the letter had been written to appease certain union workers who were protesting against the hotel. Also, we found out that President George Bush, Sr. had been in residence on Tuesday night and the staff didn’t want him to be shocked! On Friday the privacy drapes went up, the rules were dropped and the butts and gear were in full view for all to appreciate

Are You Ready for IML?
For those of you not familiar, IML (imrl.com) is one of the largest gatherings of Leatherfolk, Kinksters and Gear Fetishists in the world. It’s always held Memorial Day Weekend (May 27-30 this year) in Chicago. Our city will be represented in this year’s competition by Drew Kramer, who won the Mr. Palm Springs Leather 2011 title during November’s Leather Pride (desertleatherpride.com). Good luck Drew, and have fun!
It seems like every year there is always some sort of political uproar or controversy surrounding the contest (and last year was no exception!), but I choose not to get swept up in such things. The reality is that everyone who competes is already a winner and when you’re trying to select one representative from such a talented, dedicated and sexy group of entrants someone is always bound to be disappointed with the result.
The real reason I attend IML is for the brotherhood and friendships, amazing vendor market, no-attitude dance parties and the incredible feeling that comes from having thousands of men just like you gathered together to celebrate their sexual freedom – all while decked out in their coolest gear.
I can’t imagine staying anywhere but the host hotel, which this year is none other than the world-famous Hyatt Regency Chicago (bit.ly/jRJA0B). The hotel environment is always electric and fueled with testosterone. The lobby itself is a sight to behold as it begins to fill on Thursday and remains packed all weekend with the hottest Leathermen on the planet!
Any time you travel to a major leather event, it’s worth prepping ahead of time to insure that you both look your best and have the most fun. Here’s how I get ready for IML, along with some of my favorite things to do at the event.

Oxballs Powerball and Splitsling
If you like jelly cockrings, then you’ll love the new Powerball ring. You can stretch it to gigantic sizes and it won’t break, plus the three anti-slip balls at the bottom are engineered specially to make it stay put. Finally a jelly ring which doesn’t slide up your balls and lose effectiveness! Available in all eight colors shown.
The Splitsling is another variation on the world-famous Cocksling, this time with an added ball splitter (very much like the Oxballs Splitz). If you always wished your Cocksling had some added ball support and enhancement, then this is the perfect accessory for you! Available in Black, Clear, Red, Blue and Yellow.
At the moment these toys are a Gear exclusive and only available online (click the links above for more pix and to order), but we’ll also have them in the store later in the week. And don’t forget, because of our special relationship with Ox, our web shop always has every new toy the minute it is released, plus it’s just about the only place there is that carries the entire Oxballs line. Shop us first for all of your favorite butt and cock and ball toys!

Oxballs Dick Plugs
The silicone ones are soft enough to mold to the shape of your piss-tube, but are firm enough to slide inside or even fuck your pisshole like a dick-dildo. They’ll even flex while you stoke! The metal ones are made from mirror polished aircraft aluminum and can be electrified for an incredible sensation!
The pictures here are just a sample of the colors, sizes and shapes we have available. They’re available both in the Palm Springs store and online.
