Diamond Level Business Partners
We’ve always been passionate about great gear. Whether it’s the stuff you wear to flag your fetish or the toys and equipment you use to enhance your play, great gear makes sex better. And great sex makes your life better.
In 2005 we opened our retail store, Gear Leather & Fetish, to share our passion for great gear with the world. Our unique shopping environment, outstanding service and exceptional curated collection of quality fetish products quickly earned us widespread customer and industry acclaim.
In 2014, two of our favorite suppliers chose us to advance their founders’ legacies into the twenty-first century. That’s when JIMsupport and LeatherStock joined our family, and our new corporate entity—Fetish Locker—was born. Today Fetish Locker is a leader in retailing, manufacturing and distributing fantastic fetish goods.
Please take a look around and learn more about us. Whether you’re a business that’s interested in carrying our products or a retail customer who wants to find out more about what we do, we’re eager to serve you with our renowned excellence and care.

The Desert Fetish Authority is a brotherhood of men who are into fetish gear and kinky play and who want to learn more about both. We embrace the masculinity and the eroticism of our gear and seek to grow as men by incorporating advanced forms of sexual play into our lives. We want to find, hang out and have fun with guys like us, in real-life settings away from internet hook-up sites and chat rooms, where we can build true bonds of fraternity and friendship.
We’re a New Guard group of guys who are striving to create the Next Guard: one that respects the knowledge and foundations laid by our forbearers, but applies them in ways that are more meaningful to our generation. We’re men for whom trust, honor and respect are important, but excessive protocol is not. We believe in the value of living a disciplined life, but not without having a lot of fun too! Newcomers and curious guys are especially welcome!
