About us

Scandinavian Leather Men Oslo was established as SLM Norway in 1976, a fetish and BDSM club for gay men, inspired by similar named clubs in Sweden and Denmark. The club was from the very start a part of an international fetish community. Several guys from Oslo visited the same year both the very first Baltic battle arrange by SLM Stocholm, and some guys also ventured by train through DDR to West-Berlin for one of the first “Easter in Berlin”. Back in Oslo they decided that Oslo also needed a meeting place for leather men. This happened only four years after decriminalization of gay sex in Norway and shows how rapid society evolved back then.

Since 2009 SLM Oslo has had its club quarters just outside the walls of the old medieval royal castle in down town Oslo. We run our own fully licensed bar, and downstairs, in the old 17-century basement we have an intimate but well equipped play-dudgeon. The club is open one or two nights every week, for fetish club nights, or different thematic parties as fisting, rubber, sportswear, wet, bdsm and so on. Every second month we turn up the heat and invites to naked parties, which never fail to attract a large crowd. Large crowds are also to be expected at our annual birthday party; Valhall, our Halloween party; Red Devil, and during the week of Oslo Pride.
