Bad Girls is an SM/Leather club for women. Based in Portland OR, Bad Girls offers workshops, discussion groups, socials, special events, and play parties. Online we offer an an email list for members, and publicize our events to the public via Facebook and FetLife. It is not necessary to join Bad Girls to participate in our events, but membership allows a deeper sense of community and participation. Your support of Bad Girls helps strengthen the community of leather women in Portland and beyond.

Members must be self-identified women 18 years or older. In addition to everyone who identifies as female, we also welcome people who prefer to describe themselves as butch, femme, dyke, boi, agender, genderqueer, and more. (We are working on a clearer statement of our gender policy; if you would like to participate, let us know via the contact form.) Former members who now identify as male can remain friends of the club.

Bad Girls is not a political organization, although we may support organizations that work for causes such as the defense of sexual freedom and the empowerment of women and sexual minorities.

What we offer:

Workshop / Play Parties

Recently we have been offering four educational workshops a year, each followed by a play party. Topics address a range of interests and levels of experience. In 2016 our workshop-play party combined events are in February, May, August (in conjunction with Oregon Leather Pride and open to self-identified women and all who identify as queer), and October. Occasionally we will have additional stand-alone educational events.

Discussion Groups

Our primary in-person discussion is the monthly Full Moon Friday meetup at Bare Bones Cafe, open to all self-identified women. Members have an opportunity to join targeted discussion lists as well.

A Kinky Women’s Munch

On the 2nd Tuesday of each month, from 7 to 9 pm, we sponsor an opportunity for kinky and questioning women of all orientations and interests to meet in a safe public space.


The club sponsors two fundraisers yearly, from which 100% of funds raised go to our chosen charity. (Voting members choose a different charity each year.) This year one fundraiser will be a Bad Girls sponsored Inferno, and “Down & Dirty” in November.
