What’s your idea of kinky sex? Hot wax? Whips? Leaving the lights on? Go behind the scenes at annual International Mr. Leather competition, where thousands of men from around the world have gathered for over 30 years to compete for this title of Kink community leadership.
Once a small niche community that was dismissed by critics as a carnival of gay sexual fetishes, leather has gone mainstream, and Kink Crusaders proves why. As it delves into the lives and aspirations of its contestants with humor, tasteful eroticism and pathos, it reveals a group of men for whom spiritual connection, openness and understanding are the true definition of masculinity.
Whether you’re kinky or vanilla, gay or straight, or anywhere in between, this wildly unique – and surprisingly discreet – documentary will make you stand up and cheer.
Please join us at Machine/Ramrod for the Kink Crusaders Afterparty.
