We realize that there has been a good deal of conversation regarding the future of our upstairs studio space at Mr. S and we felt it was important to provide an official statement. Mr. S is not closing! Quite the opposite. With the available space at the building we have found it necessary to restructure the studio so we can accommodate our growth – something we are very grateful for. The new plans will move our latex production team to the upper level of the building as well as increase the size of our R&D team. These changes are intended to help keep up with demand for our gear and improve how quickly we bring out new designs. Our ultimate goal with these changes is to continue to bring you the best gear available.
Unfortunately, the space as it exists will be cut in half. With such a small space now being available we felt that it would not be an appropriately sized venue for the play parties that everyone has been used to attending. We’ve enjoyed being able to hold our own fisting parties as well as host numerous other parties, classes and events over the years. The final party will be an RMSF party over Dore Alley weekend. It truly does sadden us that we need to make these changes but in order to move forward this difficult decision is necessary. Once the construction and department moves are completed we will see what future events we can accommodate. Any opportunity to keep kinky sex happening is incredibly important to us!
We will, however, continue to host the monthly LDG meeting as well as the LDG mentoring meetings. We feel these organizations are an important part of our community and offer outlets to help continue and grow the leather community.
We were fortunate to be able to develop the space a few years ago into the sex-positive play area and thank you to all that have attended.
All of us at Mr. S
