SILENT AUCTION COORDINATON
PrurientGent is assisting bat with this year’s BTL silent auction before taking over the reins. He and his wife of 20-plus years, RavenWitch, began their journey into ethical non-monogamy over a decade ago. While they aren’t “out” publicly yet as polyamorous, they want to provide encouragement and support to others in the poly and kink communities whenever possible. PrurientGent considers himself vanilla – with a twist – and a bit of a sensualist. He works in healthcare administration and fundraising/event planning. He and Raven are active in community theatre.
Sarah, a consummate social butterfly with a background in marketing and public relations, enjoys community outreach/activism and connecting people with interesting and meaningful experiences. She and her husboi Kris travel extensively presenting classes and workshops on a wide variety of topics, and she's delighted to be able to leverage their connections and experience to increase awareness of amazing opportunities such as Beyond The Love!

ASSISTANT ENTERTAINMENT COORDINATOR
bio coming soon
Marcus has always been possessed of three qualities; a deeply passionate polyamorous heart, an indomitable spirit, and a creative, kinky, and so very logical mind. A combination that resulted a dominant poly man trapped in the same body as a goofy, game obsessed, ageless boy. That said, he didn’t discover the world of BDSM, or that his dominant side had a name, until he turned 20. But once he did there was no putting the genie back in the bottle.
More recently he has been active in the local Indianapolis and Regional communities for the last 10 years and openly pursuing poly relationships for the last 8. He is currently in a polyamorous relationship with his devoted submissive partner, who is pursuing a path towards slavery with him.
They are also dating and playing with others as life allows.
He wholeheartedly believes in doing all he can to make the community more welcoming to all, and is thrilled to share his love of games and talent for teaching in this pursuit.
RavenWitch and her husband of 20-plus years, PrurientGent, began their journey into ethical non-monogamy over a decade ago. While they aren’t “out” publicly yet as polyamorous, they want to provide encouragement and support to others in the poly and kink communities whenever possible. Raven is active in the Lexington (KY) kink community as a charter member of the Lexington Leather Hearts Club and Dames of Leather Lexington (DOLLs). She and her “other hubby”, EruditeHayseed, celebrated their commitment in October of 2015. After 20 years of raising a family and working in healthcare, she is now studying to become a massage therapist. She is thrilled to be a part of the BTL staff and considers the Columbus community her second home.
