Panelist

AJ Renard

(she/her)

Panelist Bio

AJ Renard (she/her) has been involved in the BDSM world her entire adult life, although she was a dark little thing far before that. AJ works in the mental health field and has a deep passion for teaching about BDSM and consent. She finds her happy place when there is rope, electricity, knives, boots, fear, and a lot of crying involved. In her limited free time she makes custom chainmaille for her shop, Foxy Feisty Redhead.

 

AJ teaches a variety of classes about consent, negotiations, perspectives on D/s, bottoming for intense scenes and edgeplay, mental health and BDSM, and behavioral science in PE dynamics. She also loves demo bottoming for Violet Wand demos, and things that make her shy in front of groups of people.

Panelist Bio


Goddexx Symphonee

(Yo, She Set, They set)

Panelist Bio

Goddexx Symphonee (Yo/She/They) is a Black, Bisexual, Non Binary, LeatherFemme. Since entering the scene over 9 years ago, she has sought out pleasure, pain, and liberation in the Kink/Leather communities from Baltimore and DC to beyond. Presently, she is Ms DC Eagle 2020, the creator of N.E.S.S.T, and an astrologer and initiated ATR practitioner. She currently identifies with the labels of Dominant, Sadist, Leather Auntie, and Cat.


Leo

(He/him)

Panelist Bio

Leo (He/ Him) is unapologetically authentic in how he lives his life, that is the cornerstone of his foundation. Embracing it with enthusiasm and a twisty sense of humor. This idea touches every aspect of who he is: Leather, Queer, spiritually focused, sadist, trans-masculine, Master.

Leo entered the BDSM scene in the late 1980s as a Leather Dyke. Self-mastery has always been at the forefront of his passions, of which he has many - including blood play, facilitating hook pulls, energy work and body modification, to name a few.  As the owner of Beyond Piercing, he has more than a passing fancy to all sharp things. He loves sharing his knowledge and skills with others.

He has been mentor, teacher, friend, student, Sir, Daddy and Master (to a select few) and is honored to facilitate spiritual journeys. He’s been an active member of MAsT, COLLAR and a variety of other organizations. Leo is in long-term addiction recovery and has worked as an addiction counselor, victims advocate and in crisis intervention.  He’s been practicing authority exchange relationships since 2005. After an 8-year sabbatical while recovering from a car accident he is thrilled to be back more passionate than ever.


Magic

(it/they)

Panelist Bio

Magic (they/it) is a queer, disabled, neurodivergent leather slave. They’ve had a passion for the community since they first joined nearly 7 years ago. A passion so strong that it even found its way into their studies. Magic completed their undergraduate program having written a thesis on the leather community in France and continues to study leather history in their graduate program.

Their passion for leather has shaped itself into providing education and service for the community. Over the past several years they have volunteered for various venues and events, virtual and not. Today they live in Chicago, the city its family calls home.


Ms. Cat

(She/her)

Panelist Bio

Ms. Cat is a fierce Femme Leather Mommy and a Service Mistress that enjoys nourishing her community through mentorship, education, leadership and producing events. Residing in the SF Bay Area, Ms. Cat's influence in pet play and play piercing can be seen nationally. If she's not out poking, whipping or setting someone on fire, Ms. Cat is best known for her passionate talks on BIPOC advocacy and Femme Solidarity.


Mxstress

(They.Them/We)

Panelist Bio

Mxstress Reba (aka Rowen) works to spread understanding, awareness, and empathy about the experiences of individuals with historically marginalized identities; particularly focusing on queer, transgender, and gender non-conforming people of color. Mxstress works as an educational consultant and public speaker; a cooperative co-owner, tutor, mentor, and curriculum developer, and a professional nonbinary Dominatrix. They strive to educate, empower, speak truth to power, challenge, and learn in collaboration with those around them! Mxstress loves coffee, trying new things, and spending time in the sun!


Pill

(She/Her He/Him)

Panelist Bio

Iris “Ire” Mansur (aka Pill) is a Queer radical neurodivergent multiracial feminist activist on a constant journey to achieve his most authentic and transparent self – he/him she/her. Along the way he’s faced himself time and again, eventually coming to celebrate the raw humanity in violence, the empowerment in control, the transcendence in focus, and the overwhelming voracity that can only be evoked by upturned eyes and dirty knees. Fortunate enough to be adored by one very devoted bunny, to everyone else she is simply a loud and lascivious Leatherperson who strives to create an inclusive space within the community and form lasting bonds with other outcasts like herself. Uniquely afforded the ability to be “out” completely, she utilizes her platforms and privilege to advocate for equity, justice, and liberation.

A sadomasochistic Owner-type with a love for 24/7 Authority Transfer relationships, Ire hopes to have a future filled with presenting on topics such as mental health in power exchange, behavior modification, emotional sadism, and all things internal. He is a graduate of the Dallas Mentors Program 2013, an active NLA-Dallas member, volunteer coordinator for Beyond Vanilla 24 & 25, and a Queer youth mentor who has been in the public BDSM community for 10 years.


Sophie Kay

(she/her)

Panelist Bio

i'm an owned slave who is also a bisexual (more correctly pansexual, but that term wasn't around during my identity development) as well as polyamorous.  i am married to my Master and have been for just over 20 years.  My Master and i have always had an open relationship. My Master and i have been active in the lifestyle for about 10 years with about seven years of that being devoted to living 24/7.  We transitioned from D/s to M/s about 6 years ago.

My interests within the lifestyle include all types of bondage (especially rope), electric play (estim and violet wand) as well as impact play. 

i am working to blend my vanilla life and my love for BDSM and kink.  I am a licensed  therapist early in my career who is working diligently to bring opportunities to those in the LGBTQ community who do not have options in my rural area.  I was a part of the inaugural year of the Kink Aware Therapist Training Program at the Kink Therapy Certification Institute. 

I am especially interested in working with those in the lifestyle who are married to their D/s or M/s partners, have been abused or have a mental health issue, those living 24/7 and those who have a difficult time transitioning from the vanilla world to kink (i.e. putting yourself in the mindset after getting home from work).  I find peace living as a slave, and love helping others achieve the same - regardless of which side of the slash they are on!

Vanilla interests include a menagerie of animals - my two beautiful yorkies as well as the leopard geckos and ball pythons that I breed.  I love the beach.  I'm a huge nerd and love to read - especially anything horror!  I'm pretty much a home body when I'm not working.


The Rabbi

(he/him)

Panelist Bio

Born to kink on 6/9, The Rabbi (He/Him) is a Cisgender, Ambimorous, Gynesexual, Sadistic Bratty Daddy Dom. He has been called the "Prince of the Pervertables," "The Pied Piper of Brats," and "The Carrot Top of Kink.” (The last one was a compliment, right?) He creates his own unique toys with a sadistic flair that would make the prop master on Cutthroat Kitchen jealous, including ceiling fan paddles, Lego nipple clamps, and a mop head flogger to name a few, selling them in his online store, SINagogueBDSM on Etsy (and Fetlife). The Rabbi has electrocuted people with slinkys, broken all Ten Commandments (over someone's ass), and hit people with everything he can get his hands on, including a literal kitchen sink. Currently, he's a mental health professional working on certification to be a sex therapist. The Rabbi is hoping to follow in the steps of the early psychological pioneer, William Moulton Marston, who was the creator of both D.I.S.C. Theory (Dominance/Inducement/Submission/Compliance) and Wonder Woman, the latter of which was originally intended to bring BDSM to the masses in a digestible format.
