Azereael: I have been a proud member of the BDSM community since the late 1990s, and began teaching on the topic out of my own passions and fantasies, and a deep commitment to the practice of BDSM for health and happiness. Kinky play involves a relationship dynamic that requires intelligence, responsiveness, and communication. When practiced well, I believe BDSM is a ritual of intimacy that provides those involved with cathartic enrichment and pleasure. All erotic exchanges should be grounded in mutual consent, communication, and trust,and the practice of BDSM can elevate these ethics into an art form.
I like to introduce novice explorers and veteran players alike to a style of kinky exchange that is graceful, intense, loving, and skilled. I do not consider dominance to be tantamount to the right to act irresponsibly or in a negative manner. I consider the negotiated, consensual exchange of power and pain to be innately positive. I love to smile and laugh when I play, and inspire people with my love and deep enjoyment of all that kink has to offer.

Lady D: Greetings. Many of you know me but for those of you who do not; my name is Reverend Deborah Harrison but I am better known as Lady D. I am a Lifestyle Domina and the owner of D&S Lifestyles Inc. I am an ordained minister, a spiritual Life Coach, consultant and a certified Master Hypnotherapist and I truly believe in holistic healing of mind, body and spirit. In all of these capacities; I counsel and help those in complimentary lifestyles acknowledge their divine nature and accept who they truly are. For almost fourteen years I was the leader of P.E.P Atlanta (People Exchanging Power), a pansexual support and social group. This organization hosted weekly discussions and demonstrations. Support and a safe play space to help educate those interested in power play relationships. In 2000, I created PEP4POC (People Exchanging Power for People of Color) an inclusionary group created to enlighten, empower and dispel myths and misconceptions concerning BDSM and People of Color. I founded Onyx Pearls Southeast in 2006 and I also helped to relaunch OPSE in 2015.

My vision has evolved since I first entered this Leather lifestyle journey over 30 years ago. P.E.P. began as a heterosexual group with little to no tolerance and through the years it evolved to include all and developed a community consciousness. My path now is to continue to educate and enlighten and to help bring healing to those doing detrimental and destructive things in our community and the world at large. I want to help them heal and achieve dignity, acceptance and live up to their full potential. I am now free to educate, share my knowledge and mentor those who have a sincere hunger and thirst for this lifestyle. I will continue to serve in whatever capacity that I am needed. My personal commitment is to help make this community stronger and better and to continue Jill Carter’s philosophy of “Each One, Teach One”. I offer my services if you would like me to teach, be a judge or a guest speaker. I can be reached at the information below. Please remember to give your money, your time and your love to all of those in this community that selflessly give to you.

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, she embraced technology to help share best practices, practical application, and mentoring beyond the bounds of real-time traditional Leather settings. In 2011, her outside the box thinking led her to the Second Life platform, where she identified a gap in the online virtual world’s BDSM groups, M/s dynamics were often misrepresented and/or misinterpreted. To help fill the gap, she developed within the Second Life platform The Art of Submission, an education-focused M/s venue to host lifestyle-related discussions with facilitators who are active in their Real-Life Communities.
Ms Noël: Ms. Noël has been training large animals, hitting people with whips, and practicing formal dining etiquette for nearly all of her life.

Unsurprisingly, most of those skills translated easily to humans on her introduction to the BDSM world at age 19.
