Last Sunday, BDSM fans and curious spectators descended upon Western SoMa for the annual Folsom Street Fair. More than 200 exhibitors lined Folsom Street to showcase their BDSM toys and perform acts of bondage to enthusiastic crowds. Many attendees came dressed in sadomasochistic attire and participated in whippings, spankings, and other role playing activities. The festival was flanked by two dance areas filled with attendees and professional dancers moving to the rhythms of EDM music. The event ran from 11am to 6pm and was expected to draw more than 400,000 people. Photos of the event are posted below.
