The Leather Oaks Update Page

Everyone has one, it seems, and I wouldn't want you to feel shortchanged!!

2/25/2018     The 2018 Holiday Card is already up, can you believe it? Danin came over again, and he got some closeups and some broader views. There is one of each featured on the single card sent this year. Of course, there are some VERY interesting Web-only poses too. The 2018 Holiday Card.

2/25/2018     The 2016 card was devoted exclusively to my new Leather Oaks sign, and somehow I never got them online. Last September, my good friend and professional photographer Danin again came over. This time our session had a distinctly aquatic feel. As there was only one card produced for both years, The 2016 and 2017 Holiday Cards share a page.

2/22/2018     Three years of Christmas Cards finally get their place on Leather Oaks, the Web Site! I actually had posted the 2015 photos over a year ago, but forgot to post an entry in the Updates: Christmas 2015. Other than the Leather Card, my friend Danin provided the camera magic for most of these cards.

11/13/2014     My good friend and professional photographer Danin has made several visits to Leather Oaks. A few years ago, he finally got to see the Rubber & Rawhide Railway. Somehow, he didn't pay much attention to the trains. Seems there was this harnessed rubberman cavorting around the place. In the first new entries to the Harnessed Drawer in a Decade, you get to see the results!

12/30/2013    The Christmas Section has been brought up to date! There were only six cards in the three years being added, but I've found about four times that many to flesh out the experience. I really like the first “Twenty-Teen” page for this year, 2013!

01/16/2013    The Hot Garden has been updated, completing pages that I thought I had done two years ago! Seems that while I had selected most of the photos, I didn't build all the pages. There's eleven new sections, totaling around 200 photos! You really ought to check out the Earthy Rubber Page, for sure!

01/01/2011    The Media Page has been updated, featuring Leather Harold's own "channel" on YouTube. If you'd rather just cut to the chase, the tumultuous Thunderboots video is ready to reprogram your concept of the limits of climatic events.

12/20/2010    The Alin Steglinski Story Alin's Site   A while back, I received an interesting request from a young man, asking me where I get the belts I use on some of my wildest pseudo-bondage photos. The ensuing dialogue has blossomed into a rewarding friendship. We're collaborating on a special rubber bondage page that focuses on the more therapeutic side of bondage, but until then, please visit his site to find out more about this most interesting guy and how bondage helps him live a better, more relaxed life!

12/19/2010    The Christmas 2010 photos are up and ready! Leather Oaks Christmas Section, 2010   Wow, it's even before Christmas!  Once again, there are a few "Web Only" poses! !

4/21/2009     See the Spring Tour from a Railway Coach! The Rubber and Rawhide Railroad visits most all the better Garden Sites at Leather Oaks. Here's that link: 2009 Railway Azalea Trail.

2/14/2009     A Valentine Card from Amy to Brian, but anyone can enjoy it! Here's that link: Valentine's Card.

12/29/2008     The old "Home Page" and "Main Page", bless their cluttered, little hearts, are Pixellated History! You've no doubt already found entering Leather Oaks is a whole lot less bewildering. Separate pages have been created for Navigation, MediaFiles, Policy, just to name a few, so hopefully we can keep things simpler.

12/23/2008     All of the pages are now complete in the The Posted Katrina Section! These include a thick, snug-fitting drysuit that O'Neill called their O'ASIS ! Then my old Ironman wetsuit gets a visit to the recovering Leather Oaks Pond. And most disgusting of all, two jockstraps are all I wear while getting down in the red earth!

12/20/2008     The Rubber and Rawhide Railroad, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Leather Oaks, the Rural Location, now has their own page hosted by our site! At this time, the staff is concentrating on uploading the several dozen Press Releases they've issued since last February. More interesting content will follow, we're assured!

12/20/2008     The Posted Katrina Section, our collection of humorously sensual pages deriving from the Post Katrina period (get it?) continues to grow! Just added are a remarkable 37 photos of Harold's experimentation with February Mud, his excuses for not skiing and a remarkable excursion into rootball spelunking, just to name a few! Don't miss the Earthy Butterfly, or the Dirt Burial, either!

12/18/2008    The Christmas 2008 photos are up and ready! Leather Oaks Christmas Section, 2008   Hi-Res Alert! !   Almost full-size versions of the photos are available.  And, there once again are "Web Only" poses! !

02/21/2008     Hot Garden is being revitalized and greatly expanded! Ten pages are already available for your sensual edifiction, with three or four times that number to follow. We should warn you, there is considerable garden content behind the frolicking rubberman and layered leatherman.

02/07/2008    The staid and stale Garden Section has been upgraded! Stroll through thirty-five years, endure three major hurricanes, thrill to burbles of ponds, chuckle with wisecracking statuary and more. Not your style, and you KNOW what you want? Hot Garden may stoke more than your botanical interests and perhaps fulfill needs you haven't realized formerly!

12/03/2007    The Christmas 2007 photos are up and ready, on their very own two pages! Leather and Pleather Cards, 2007 and Rubber Card, 2007will take you there.   Hi-Res Alert! !   Almost full-size versions of the photos are available.  And, there once again are "Web Only" poses! !

02/18/2006    A new Leather Jockstrap story, but it's hidden under Padded Leather!   If you can't stand searching, here's the link, Butterscotch Leatherman Bulge. . . . Enjoy!

01/20/2006    The Monster upgrade of the Rubber Themes Department is all done!   The Dry Suits and Working Rubber Pages were almost tied in completion tardiness!! For those who might miss him, here's a special link to my temporarily sidelined Muybridge Jumper!

01/07/2006    The Monster upgrade of the Rubber Themes Department is ninety percent complete!   Forty-nine of an estimated 56 pages are now up and running, which means my jumper is not nearly as busy as he was!

12/18/2004    The Leathers Section has been restored after many years of absence!!  More than 160 photos on 18 pages, with most of my riding leather alternatives more fully investigated than you'd probably rather have seen!   Laced, Padded, Earthy, One-piece and many more.

7/15/2004    The Night Garden Page has been added at the beginning of the expanded Garden section!  

7/05/2003    The Rubber Themes Page has been updated with a new "Litter Patrol" image.!   Furthermore, a link there now provides access to four more Litter Patrol photos, with really phenomenal latex and jockstrap bulges, ensconced on the top of the Working Rubber Page.

7/03/2003    The Bulge Tutorial Page has been reworked, to include five more linked pages.  Since some may find these too racy, I request that you look for them by visiting the Bulge Building Applications Page!   Repeat visitors to may recognize some of the images, since the first three pages feature jockstrap photos I first shared with that site.  The last two pages are all new material, and very laminar, in a way!  Forty-eight new and reclaimed photos were added on these pages.

6/17/2003    The Garden Page now has a companion Sweaty Garden Section!   Those who found the former too BORING (you know who you are <G>) will rejoice, while the bulgeophobic detractors will have to search for the Green Rubber Door!!   Twenty-four new photos were created expressly for these pages.
