Sir Luke and His victor
Sir Luke and his slave, victor, have built a devoted, long term Master/slave dynamic on a foundation of service, protocol, and Leather ideology. As individuals living on the queer spectrum, they believe in expressing authenticity and are convicted and passionate about LGBTQIA+ and intersectional politics. They hold the Florida Power Exchange 2016/2017 title.
Within their dynamic, they balance their dichotomous desires for unbridled, heavy S&M, structure and ritual, and deeply passionate empowering sex. While their level of authority transfer isn’t for everyone, the skills they have learned on their journey together are applicable to all who explore diverse, intimate exchanges. Through education, they strive to encourage others to discover and live their authentic self, without shame or fear.
They have presented internationally on eroticism in leather care, deepening devotion and surrender, and the positive aspects of structured lifestyles. Sir Luke has a strong connection to Leather history and aims to build a brighter future for the queer Leather community. slave victor is a devoted slave who speaks against the stigmas surrounding mental health. Together, they stand behind the phrase, “Be authentically you.”
DaddyKenyon and SwitchyButch
A queer, Butch, Leatherdyke bootblack, educator, and Leatherboy, SwitchyButch has been fiercely kinky for nearly two decades. Active in the public BDSM community since 2002, and kinky a bit before that, Daddy Kenyon is a queer, polyamorous, genderqueer, Leather, dyed-in-the-wool switch and a passionate educator. From the first time they played, sparks flew. Although an early conversation consisted of SwitchyButch telling Daddy Kenyon “I don’t do submission, and I don’t do service,” he has been collared to her since 2013. Both are covered Leather Masters, and SwitchyButch continues to kneel in service, as well as owning his own boy. Together these two troublemakers enjoy sadomasochism, boots, anticipatory service, cigars, and tea. They live their power exchange with a focus on connection, mindfulness, and growth. Daddy Kenyon and SwitchyButch devote much of their free time to serving and educating in their local kink and Leather community, as well as across the US and abroad, presenting at events such as Twisted Tryst; COPE; Spanksgiving; GLLA; Freyja’s Fling, and Power eXchange Summit.
