South Bay Bears Fetish & BDSM Club
The online home for the South Bay Bears of Silicon Valley.
A social organization serving the care and feeding of two legged bears in Santa Clara County and beyond.
Information about our history, mission and events can be found here. Have a look around, we’re a friendly group. We hope to see you in person sometime soon.
Many of the members we looking for other Bears and Bear events in the South Bay. The group was founded on April 15, 1996 after a meeting to determine the interest level for forming another group in the South SF Bay area. The founders hoped for a dozen bears/friends at this first meeting but only expected 5 or 6. They were quite surprised when 32 people attended the meeting.
The organization currently has about 100 members and has already held hundreds of events. One of our first more ambitious events was a food booth at the San Jose Gay Pride festival in 1996. It was both a lot of work and a lot of fun. In November of 96, the first annual South Bay Bear Hunt was held. It was a double first. We were privileged to be responsible for choosing not only the first Mr. South Bay Bear, but we were the first bear group in the world to have a Ms. South Bay Bear.
The majority of the events sponsored by the South Bay Bears are held within the Santa Clara County, but some events are held in other locations to either publicize the organization or to allow the group to attend attractions or other functions.
