Sir Luke and his victor - 2019 - 2021 SouthEast Master and slave
enact their Master/slave dynamic with a consensual nonconsent structure. They have discovered divine purpose in their exploration of leathersex, sacred S&M, and elevated service. When victor’s petition reached Sir Luke's hands in 2013, they took a leap of faith together, overcoming fear and shame, and have built the most intense, passionate expression of love and authenticity they've known ever since. Their blood is shared on the collar victor now wears permanently.
They have presented internationally on eroticism in leathercare, deepening devotion and surrender, and the healing aspects of structured lifestyles. As a second generation Leatherman, Sir Luke has a strong connection to Leather history and strives to carry his uncle's legacy by building a brighter future for the queer Leather community. slave victor is a devoted slave who speaks against the stigmas surrounding mental health, expression of gender, and fragility in slavery. Together, they stand behind the phrase, "Be authentically you."
Sir Luke and his victor earned the Florida Power Exchange title of 2016/2017. Sir Luke currently serves on the board for the Leather Leadership Conference. When they're not doing work in the community, they enjoy their home sanctuary, where victor can sit at Sir Luke's feet in their dungeon and they can simply exist as Master and slave.

June 2019 Column
Has it really only been two weeks? Sir and i really hit the ground running. We attended a meeting with MAsT Kissimmee as well as video called into the MAsT Ft. Lauderdale meeting. We had some great discussions about butler books and what it takes to travel as power exchange and M/s partners. Did you know that we almost always travel with plastic zip top bags, or that the index for our butler book is three pages long? It’s always such a pleasure to participate in these group discussions and really see how, in all our differences, we all want to be successful and seen in our chosen flavor of relationship.
Master/slave is such a particular segment among the widely diverse spectrum of BDSM, Kink, and Leather lifestyles. Add into that the further diversities of the LGBTQIA+ and neurodivergent communities, finding peers and partners can seem like a mind-boggling undertaking.
Even when i first met Sir and we both had a desire to enter this dynamic, things weren’t at the right place and time for either of us. It took two more years of growing and learning for us to really find that ideal space of being ready to lay out all our cards, be transparent, and take a leap of faith together. We both knew what we wanted and in what order our priorities fell, and as soon as we found that critical compatibility, we were off!
Over the years, we have had all sorts of ups and downs. Amazing moments, sad days, and even times where we just held tight to each other and waited out the storms.
After our speeches Saturday night at SELF, all we could do was wait. We had done what we came to do. We said what we wanted to say and were authentic to ourselves. Months and months of planning, preparing, and practicing came down to this heart pounding, breath-holding moment. Would we win? Would we lose? If we lost, would we regret or question what we did or how i looked?
Sir took me into His arms, and we took a moment to breathe. We reminded each other that we were deliberate, vulnerable. That no matter what, we were proud of one another. i told Him how amazing it was that He didn’t falter in His speech, knowing that He was so nervous beforehand. He told me how proud He was that i was able to overcome my fears and be who i have become.
Just backstage, as they called our classmates to the stage to take their mantles, we held each other and knew that, no matter what happened in that moment, we would go home together, that we would still hit the road, and talk about the things that impassion us, that drive us to be vocal and visible, that we would not give in to the fears and pressures of the violent world at large.
This feeling of standing at the edge, with our breath held tight in our chest, has always been a part of who we are together. The waiting for the moments that life would take us, the leaping into play and sex with wild abandon, the knowing that every single moment is all the more precious when the things outside of our control might tear us apart.
So we intertwine, take on the forces together, as a single unit. i am an extension of Him, and He is the soul that drives us both. With that tempered, indivisible strength, we move forward, no matter what. We did not falter when i fell into my mental illness, we did not break when we faced the realities of home security or job security, we did not surrender when we felt the heavy weight of too much grief.
Here we were, at another precipice. Waiting to see what would happen next. But we knew that whatever happened, it would be us together, always.
And then, in that wonderful moment, we were called to stage, and given the chance to rise up and accept the gravity and joy of the Southeast Master and slave titles.
There was a sort of hum in my ears: stunned, delighted, and overjoyed that we were able to connect not just with the judges, but members of the community there. That we would move forward with an incredible opportunity to carry our message even further.
We want to encourage and further people’s right to sexual liberation, empowerment in diversity, recognition of intersections, and education surrounding mental health and neurodivergence. We plan to do this by having earnest conversations about our experiences, histories, and endeavors as Master and slave, as well as teaching as much as we are able and making genuine connections that help strengthen the bonds between broad spaces of the community.

Oct 2019 Column
From Washington, D.C., to Salt Lake City, Utah, and back to Washington, D.C, all within a month’s time, and then to Atlanta and all over Florida. That just barely touches the surface of how steeped in community my slave and I have been these past few months. I’ve been getting back to work for the new school year, and my slave has been keeping the house together throughout my busy schedule as we travel back and forth. The events we’ve gone to have been new, wonderful experiences that have given us a renewed appreciation and hope for our future.
At the beginning of August, we attended Woodhull Sexual Freedom Summit and met a whole new demographic of folks in lines of work parallel to what we do in the lifestyle and equally as important. We made so many connections, and attended classes that were truly enlightening. Our class, “Queer Leathersex,” went well and was well received by attendees.
Rocky Mountain Rebellion felt like the family reunion we didn’t know we needed. We saw so many folks from our Sin family (Sin in the City in Las Vegas!), met folks from the Salt Lake City MAsT chapter, and had great conversations surrounding mental health, leathersex, behavior modification, and total surrender in power dynamics.
At the end of August, we attended the Master/slave Conference for our first time. What an experience. My slave and I were able to express ourselves without question, without withholding parts of ourselves we sometimes do to assimilate. It felt so natural and free to have him serve without him being interrupted, and we reveled in the opportunity to do so.
But with all light, there must be dark. Alongside the beautiful experiences we’ve had during our travel, sadness and pain have been prevalent undercurrents, both in smaller communities and the community at large. Regardless of where you stand in the current affairs, I am guiding us as we learn to answer a simple, but ever prevalent, question: What can we do to make change?
We started our official personal fundraiser for our title year to be able to afford suicidality educator certification courses. We sold shirts, and within a day of releasing them, sold all 100 of our first batch of pins. If you would like to support our mission and goals, we will have pins on us at all of our travels for $10 each. We have been able to afford for one of us to take the course, and we are so grateful to all who purchased to show their support.
Just this past weekend, we hosted a live video on our Facebook page regarding how we overcome the barriers of mental illness in our dynamic and work with them instead of working against them. Over two hundred people have watched our video, and about fifteen were watching consistently throughout and chatting with us, asking questions and having the moments we all love: the “ah-ha!” moments that gives a spark that someone can use to enrich their own dynamic.
My slave and I always talk about the story with the kid and the starfish, the one where the older folk tell them to stop trying to save them because it doesn’t matter. Still, they keep throwing starfish after starfish back into the ocean to save their lives. So how do we make change? It isn’t about how many we save, or about how big the beach is, or how hot the sun is, or how little time there is in the day. It isn’t about the people who tell us we are wasting our time or that our efforts are unnoticed. It’s about the one person whose life we changed for the better.
If we can, through living authentically and truly to who we are as Master and slave, by telling our story and not apologizing for what we are and how deeply our desires for control, dependency, and surrender go, show a person that what we do is possible, healthy, and can be safe and liberating, then what greater joy is there? And further, if we can encourage people to live their truth, without shame or silence, by including people different from ourselves but not other, then how much more diverse and rich would our community be?
Southeast Master 2019
January 2020 Column
Hello dear readers,
victor here! So much has happened since our last column. What we thought might be a quiet season for us turned out to be quite bursting with opportunities to connect and forge relationships with folks from all over the region.
In November, we spent some time in Jacksonville, FL to raise money for the Leather Heart Foundation and share a late-night meal with great friends. We road tripped up to Milton, FL and shared two classes: “Protocols and Rituals: Making the Mundane Magic,” and, “On the Edge of Consent.” We shared some of the functionality of how protocols and rituals enrich our lives as well as how we thrive within consensual nonconsent as a structure of our dynamic.
The following week, right before Thanksgiving, we flew to Raleigh, NC to speak with the MAsT: Raleigh chapter about mental health and the tools and perspectives that keep us strong. We spent much needed time with our title grandparents, Master IceDog and slave ravyn (Southeast Master/slave 2017). They were wonderful hosts and we are grateful to have had more conversations with them and exist freely in the same space.
December started off with an all-day string of fire play demos at the Woodshed in Orlando, FL. Sir and i both lost count of how many folks were willing to let us show them what fire play means to us as a medium and are humbled by that trust. Later in the month, we had a wonderful evening eating Pho with MAsT Kissimmee, sharing in holiday joy. We began our winter holiday break with a hike up to Gainesville for a close contact, extended fire workshop for their TNG.
Dotted among all these wonderful days on the road were some amazing and intimate conversations with friends and acquaintances. Zoom calls and meetings have become an excellent route to reach folks outside of social media and have what feel like more face to face discussions.
Sir and i spent the last week or so at home snuggled together and ate more sweets and yummy food than we could stand. Baking and cooking are one of our favorite ways to spend time together. Well, at least, i’ll cook, and Sir sits with me as we have intentional conversations about where we are and where we’d like to go.
We together discovered a love of plum wine, added some wonderful books to our collection, and really dug into what the next year would look like for us.
It was the first time we really looked back at our 2019 in its totality and acknowledged that we have put our hearts into what we do so fully. Since January last year, we have been a part of over 50 events, discussions, and meetings.
We, in a moment, sighed, and allowed ourselves the liberty of feeling content over this winter break, and then together, with renewed passion, embraced our rituals for beginning the new year. We look forward to another exciting year with so much potential.
