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.
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.
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.

Bio coming soon…
Goddessy has been kinky, well, as long as she has been sexual! Long active in the arts & women’s community, she is excited to add her erotic energies to the event, as well as the Columbus community. She is a wickedly sensual, predominately dominant, polyamorous, queer femme; in an open relationship with her beautiful partner of 20 years and delicious lover of 3 years.
Mr. T is a conundrum wrapped in an enigma with a tall, slender build and a dashing personality. (And one heck of a moustache!) He is a font of useless and random information and will gladly engage people in a “we can build that” hypothetical type of conversation at any time. He enjoys dark beers, mild cigars and the love of his wife/submissive Shan-Wow.
Shan-Wow has been active in the kink and Leather communities since 2009. She has served as a board member for her previous home group Lafayette Alternative Lifestyles (LAL) and for Kinky Indiana Slaves & Submissives (KISS) in the greater Indianapolis area. She served 5 years as the Event Director for both the Indiana Leather and Great Lakes Olympus & Power Exchange contests and is now the Producer for Midwest Olympus Leather. All of this community service has earned her a place in Mama’s Family with the unofficial nickname of Mama’s Fluffy Pillows. She is also a filthy bootblack whose focus is on restoration. She recently relocated back to Northeast Ohio with her husband/Dominant where they live a consensually non-monogamous, executive power exchange dynamic, working to make new connections in the local community with a monthly munch and even more community service to area groups/events.
