I have been involved with the leather and kink communities for 20+ years. I consider myself an endorphin enthusiast and a silly sadist who enjoys a good laugh when playing. My sadism is more about my entertainment through your pain; it has very little to do with sexual pleasure, if at all.
In 1997, I founded Power & Trust (a kinky education and support group), with encouragement from my mentor and friend, Goddess Lakshimi. I founded Knotty Knowledge (a rope bondage peer study group) in 2010. Kiltgrrl and I founded Toledo Leather Care (a leather care education and event group) in 2015. Over the years, I have been a member of several groups and clubs (Stocks & Bonds, Ohio SMART, and NWOH TNG to name a few). I was an honorary member of La Fraternitié du Loup-Garou (beta 2013, alpha 2015). I served the club as Webmaster, was the featured presenter at CampOUT Revival 2014, and was the Programming Coordinator for and a presenter at both CampOUT Reunion 2015 and CampOUT Courage 2016.
Being a judge for Mr. Ripcord Toledo Leather 2013 was both an honor and a delight as well as helping out with the R&J Leather boy 2016 contest as Tally Master. The People of Kink podcast interviewed me on Episode 37 (released 08.04.13) and I was interviewed on TPOK Radio 11/198 (released 04.17.16) and 206 (released 06.12.16).
My partner and I bring laughter to the adventure of learning by sharing our life experiences, both the successes and mistakes, and blend our skills and knowledge to present on a variety of topics including communication, energy work, connective practices, alternative relationship styles, and conflict resolution in relationships.
It has been said I am “the sweetest, most innocent looking sadist you would ever want to meet.” When not tying people up, playing with fire, or teaching hula hoop classes, I love to sew, bake, and amuse my Bear with my antics.
