Devyn Stone


Devyn Stone is a self-awareness and BDSM educator, author, and alternative lifestyles coach. He dreams of globe trotting and helping folx achieve the connections they desire, while they learn themselves more deeply. He believes in diversity not division, and actualizes that idea by promoting strongly affirming spaces and interactions. Devyn has a passion for giving and receiving education - his favorite topics are psychology, negotiation, consent, relationship construction, and organization. His “Quick Reference” books covered affirming gender, creating protocol, negotiating authority in relationships, and more. He is the Founder of Pragmatically Kinking, where members discuss the practical aspects of BDSM, and THRIVE, a virtual conference dedicated to the intersection of mental health and BDSM. Devyn’s been actively practicing authority transfer dynamics since 2004. Today he lives in Colorado Springs, CO with his property, Guan-Xuan, who is unquestionably devoted to his will. Devyn is an extrovert, a Sons of Anarchy fan, and a foodie. Learn more at!


slave joy


Hello, my name is slave joy, she/her pronouns please. I am a student of life on an open-minded journey of self-discovery and growth to be my best self. I am a strong open-hearted spiritual woman, have a few soul parts that are that of a soft feminine baby girl, but most of all what drives my life passion at the core of my very being is that i am a joyously loving slave. I have come to understand in my soul knowing that my slavery is an orientation, just like my pansexuality. It is simply who I am.

I seek to learn, grow, and be my best slave self while supporting those in our community the best I can. Since a young age, my service heart has been my purpose-filled grounding anchor. My life is a work of service to the earth and her children’s healing and my Master’s highest good.
