About us

Both in Leather in September 2006

Both 58 years old and we have a relationship since 1993.

We live about 90 kms (55 miles) South of Amsterdam.

Our wedding

We married in 2001. We were among the first in our city. We both wore black leather pants with a white stripe on our wedding day and even our best man wore leather pants: his idea!

Media adventure

By coincidence our wedding plans became world news after we were present when the "law on the opening of marriage for people of the same sex" was passed in Dutch parliament in 2000.

Where we go out

We don't go out as much as we used to. But over the years we did manage to visit leatherbars in Antwerp (Belgium), Paris (France), Berlin, Hamburg, D sseldorf (Germany), London (UK), Phoenix (AZ), San Francisco (CA) and even Milan (Italy).

L Whip Cracking

After a couple of seasons practice L is now quite good in handling his bullwhips. You can see him on video doing four different cracks with the 8 Feet bull whip.
