…..the whoosh of the flogger as it flies through the air.
…..the sharp crack of the whip.
…..a gasp of pain.
…..strong inhalation of air as the submissive breathes through that pain.
…..deep meditative breath to clear your mind.
…..the sigh of contentment.

With its emphasis on education and the interpersonal and spiritual dynamics of D/s relationships and SM practices, SWLC provides its attendees with opportunities for a profoundly deeper experience of BDSM, irrespective of sexual orientation, gender identity, age, nationality, or religious/spiritual affiliation. SWLC also provides a vehicle for regional leather clubs, organizations and individuals to gather and celebrate the leather tribe of which we are all a part.
Although SWLC is not directly affiliated with any other group or organization, the weekend is made possible only by the efforts of many individuals, leather clubs and community organizations throughout the world, the United States, and from within the Southwest region (Arizona, Southern California, Colorado, Hawaii, Southern Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah).
