Sir Luke & his victor

Sir Luke and His victor manifest a sacred exchange of will and surrender as Master and slave, combining Leathersex and bloodlust, intentional structure and discipline, and shared personal truth. Their dynamic is flavored with notes of consensual nonconsent, depravity, and defilement. They live on the edge to uncover hidden purpose and empowerment, undeniably conquering fear and hesitation.

Sir Luke and His victor are Southeast Master/slave 2019 - 2021 and Florida Power Exchange 2016/2017. They have presented internationally on the healing aspects of authority-based dynamics and advocate for pulling back the veil. When they're not doing work in the community, they enjoy their home sanctuary, where victor can sit at Sir Luke's feet in their dungeon and they can simply exist as Master and slave.

Master Kaddan Yue

Master Kaddan Yue, Northeast LeatherWoman 2020-2021 and founding sister of ONYX Pearls NY/Northeast, has more than 40 years’ experience living the lifestyle.  After spending her initial seven years in the lifestyle "training from the bottom up," she has become the third generation of her line. Specializing in long-distance power exchange dynamics and outreach, Master Kaddan identifies as a Transient Transgender woman who has very strong masculine energy, I choose to dress masculine, my honorific is Sir.  Master with a primary love is for fem lesbians and currently owns the House of Yue with a mix of females and a male. The structure of the house is trainees, slaves, and property who reside outside of the NYC Metro area.

Master Kaddan emphasizes strong communication skills in all aspects of the lifestyle. She holds a Professional Human Services Degree with emphasis on Cognitive and Behavioral Therapy and previously served for more than 18 years federal and state-level forensic populations including violent offenders, individuals with mental health issues, and individuals coping with HIV/AIDS.  Now retired, her focus has shifted to being a Life Coach Consultant, building her household, the M/s community, and volunteering. 

As part of her advocacy for healthy power exchange relationships and desire to broaden the definition of the BDSM community, Master Kaddan embraced technology to help share best practices, practical application, and mentoring beyond the bounds of real-time traditional Leather settings.  

“While some may dismiss any platform other than Real Life, there are millions of individuals around the world unable to access real-life interactions safely or easily connect with the elders in our communities. Younger generations use technology to connect over time, distance, and cultural divides. The BDSM and Leather communities should also embrace technology to share critical introductory information concerning our lifestyles.”  

In 2011, Master Kaddan’s outside the box thinking led her to the Second Life (SL) platform, where she identified a gap in the online virtual world’s BDSM groups, Master/slave dynamics were often misrepresented and/or misinterpreted.  To help fill the gap, she developed within the Second Life platform The Art of Submission (AOS), an education-focused Master/slave venue to host unique lifestyle-related discussions with facilitators who are active in their Real-Life Communities. AOS does 4 discussions a week, I am currently doing Thursday reaching 10 to 25 people per discussion.

“I was taught that service can have many faces, so I’ve harnessed Second Life as one of the many ways to explore and promote healthy D/s and M/s dynamics. The question is simply, ‘Are you open-minded?’”

Bosch

Bosch is a bookseller and collector of 18th, 19th, and early 20th century antique erotica and sex-related books and kinky antiques. He enjoys chasing down rare and clandestinely published books. Many of these books at one time or another were ordered destroyed by religions and governments. They often have false and misleading imprints, which allowed their publishers to avoid prosecution and were freely pirated, which makes identification tricky. If Bosch has learned anything from his research of erotica it is that sexuality, in all of its glorious diversity, has been a part of literature and art throughout history. When it comes to sex there is truly nothing new under the sun. Bosch is also a Bondage/BDSM presenter, musician, music teacher and web developer. Teaching and mentoring is an integral kink for Bosch, and he receives pleasure from watching others learn and grow.

She is the only out, open, and practicing attorney in the southeast that specializes in the issues that are unique to the BDSM and ENM communities.

Lady Steele is the proud co-producer of the Southeast Power Exchange (SEPE) title, one of the feeder contests for the International Power Exchange (IPE) contest held every year at Beyond Leather in Florida.

Furthermore, Lady Steele’s Bachelor’s degree in Microbiology uniquely qualifies her to speak on the topic of safety where the breaking of skin is involved, so another passion of hers include presenting on the topics of bloodplay, needle play, and cuttings.

(House Amor, MAsT International, MTTA, The Poly Exchange, Our Leather Legacy)

 

Master Dante has been formally active in M/s for 20 years and owner of Slave Gaia Amor for 16, a polyamorous Master/slave relationship by design from its inception. This expanded into a polyfidelitous household when Sarah Amor joined his leather family and again when Coco entered his service in 2020.

 

Loquacious instigator, tipper of sacred cows, and a certified clinical hypnotherapist for over two decades. When it comes to authority-based relationships, Dante has always focused on the emotional, psychological, and interpersonal dynamics first and foremost.

 

A firm believer that mastery is a continual work in progress requiring ongoing self-inquiry, personal development, vulnerability, and a willingness to support others, he is currently in service to the community as:

• Host - Our Leather Legacy

• Founder - The Poly Exchange

• Board of Directors - MTTA, Inc.

• Director - MAsT: Metro New York

• Board of Directors - MAsT International, Inc.

Slave Gaia Amor 

(House Amor, MAsT: Metro NY, The Poly Exchange, Onyx Pearls NY/NE) 

 

Slave Gaia first came to understand her slave heart eighteen years ago in South Africa where she was born, raised, and active in the local community as both a participant and presenter. She then moved halfway around the world to New York City to be collared by Master Dante Amor, who she has had the privilege of serving for sixteen years. 

 

She possesses a deep passion for community service, an outgrowth of embracing it as her chosen family. Her dedication to loving and caring for others is one of the most natural expressions of her slavery as evidenced by her being such a shameless hugging whore. She currently serves as Secretary/Treasurer of MAsT: Metro New York, Education Liaison of MsC Worldwide, Workshop Coordinator for the Master/slave Conference, Associate Member of Onyx Pearls NY/NE, and proudly supports House Amor, her polyamorous leather family in all its endeavors.

She has been involved in the BDSM/Kink scene for four years and has had the privilege of connecting with some truly incredible folks along the way. She considers MAsT: Laurel her “home” chapter, and also regularly attends MAsT: Metro NY and MAsT: DC Pan when it’s not a school night! She is the Accessibility Lead for MsC Worldwide, founder and Coordinator of the POC Special Interest Group for the Baltimore Educational and Social Society (BESS) as well as the secretary of BESS from 2018-2020.
