MasterAaronMaster Aaron (He/Him) began his journey in 1998 travelling throughout the Southeast looking for education and experiences that he had only read about. Being in the Eastern part of North Carolina, which only had a small community at the time, he started to frequent the D.C. area forming friendships when life took a turn and he had to step away for about 3 years to focus more on himself.

Coming back into the Southeastern NC Community at the time was the reawakening he needed, in not only finding his future slave on Bondage.com and then gathering the courage to admit needing a Mentor, whom he found in Master Roy Gladson. Over the course of mentorship and evolving into one of a father/son, Master Aaron and his slave jennie started Crystal Coast M/s D/s as a means to bring together those in authority based dynamic relationships in support of one another. That group transformed into MAsT Jacksonville NC, which was granted its Charter in 2015 and still running strong along with Coming Together, a monthly play party open to all with hopes of bring together those that seek like minds and safe space.

2022 ElevenEleven I've been exploring the possibilities Leather, BDSM and Kink create my entire adult life. My coming out story includes a childhood game of caging my toys and only letting them out if they do what I say. It's still pretty much like that, but more enduring, passionate and subversive.

I'm grateful to be rooted in justice, witchcraft, queer, BDSM and polyamorous communities in Amerika and Australia, that support and shape me and my connections to extraordinary people, like my noble and devoted Tomo and my beloved paramour of 10 years, face sauvage.

I tip my hat to all those who've carved the paths I walk and work to keep the trails warm for those that will come, especially the creatives and non-conformists. I've educated, informed and entertained for over 20 years from on stage, behind a radio desk or typewriter, and continue to find affinity to folks with a radical analysis of Empire, Patriarchy, and Capital.
