The Piss Pool at “Up Your Alley 2023”
The Yellow and Black Group was pleased and proud to offer its infamous Piss Pool at the Up Your Alley Street Fair, in San Francisco, on July 30, 2023.
Our booth was located on Folsom Street, near 11th Steet. Over a dozen people, of all genders, choose to enter the pool, and well over a hundred folks (also of all genders) made use of these eager piss pigs. And, of course, thousands looked on!
Thanks to everyone who helped make it happen. Kudos to the stalwart folks who stayed on duty in the pool even after the shadows came and it got a bit chilly. Thanks to the photographers and others who donated generously, either at the event or to me here. Very special thanks to the folks who helped with setup and teardown.
History of the Piss Pool
The notorious piss pool makes regular appearances at both of San Francisco’s kinky street Fairs, “Up Your Alley” (on the last Sunday in July) and “The Folsom Street Fair” (on the last Sunday of September).
For many years, it was hosted by the Rubber Men of San Francisco, and after that group closed down, it was taken up by the the Yellow and Black Group. For a few years, it was a joint project of the Yellow and Black Group and Arizona’s “House of Black Dragon”.
Although the fairs themselves — and the use of the piss pool specifically — were cancelled in recent years due to health concerns during the COVID-19 and Monkeypox emergencies, we came splashing back in 2022, and had a great time at the 2023 “Up Your Alley. We look forward to having the pool open for all to use and enjoy at the upcoming Folsom Street Fair as well!
Thanks to everyone who has contributed (financially or fluidly) over the years, and a special thanks to the folks who have joined us in the pool! We hope you had as much fun as we did!
The Rules of the Pool
The rules of the Pool are simple:
Anyone can climb in, dressed any way they want.
Climbing in = consent to be pissed on.
Photo-shy? Loaner hoods are available.
Pee-shy? Take your time; piss pigs are very patient.
Not used to standing up? Ask for a disposable “female urination device”.
Please limit your time in the pool to one hour at a stretch.
Keep the piss in the pool and off the street.
We discourage body contact during piss play (i.e. no “sex”, please).
Climbing in or pissing is free, of course!
Folks taking pictures or video are encouraged to donate, just to offset our costs.

Dore and Folsom 2019
So here are some pictures from the “Up Your Alley” fair (7/28/19) and the Folsom Street Fair (9/29/19). I wish we had more — if you have any (or are able to find any online), please share them with us! After all, at the FSF you shared roughly ten gallons with us! *
At the 2018 Folsom Street Fair, it was a beautiful sunny day, but it was pouring down wet on 12th Street. But I am pleased to report that our cleanup was complete: over 5 gallons of piss safely deposited in the portapotties, no piss on the street, on the sidewalk, or on the lovely tapestries of the booth next to ours, and no complaints from fair management.
I am also pleased to report that at least 20 persons, of various genders and orientations, joined the fun by climbing into our piss pool . Over 200 people used them as piss targets, while over 2,000 enjoyed the view and took pictures.
Here are a few of those pictures*:
You might also enjoy this interview I gave, back in 2016, when the Piss Pool was run by the Rubber Men of San Francisco:
We expect to keep coming back, for both fairs. So please remember: don’t use the honeybuckets to piss! Enjoy your beverages, stay hydrated, and visit our booth as often as necessary! Or strip down and climb on in!
