Mitch

Mitch


Mitch is a self described "Leather Man" who is preferential to latex, more or less straight and mostly sadistic. While he is not always serious about himself, he is very serious about the magic element of what we do, something he simply calls "It."

A fixture of the BDSM public scene for well over a decade, Mitch has been involved with, supported and directed numerous straight and gay lifestyle organizations and presented workshops locally and across North America. To know him is to share his passion for play, for engaging the mind and pushing his own limits and those of his play partners. An admitted obsessive-compulsive, Mitch loves a challenge, and is recognized as a "Jack of all trades and master of many" within the community. But, he doesn't consider himself as a "technical" player, "The skills are just tools in the tool box," he says, "The art is in being the architect with a plan, not just being good with a hammer."

Mitch lives in Florida with his beautiful wife and submissive Sybil, whom he refers to as vice president of the universe.


Sybil

Sybil


Sybil is a lifelong devotee to the dynamics and passion of BDSM, and also honored to be the 24/7 submissive to her Sir, Mitch Herman. While happy to beat the living daylights out of a good friend or play partner (male or female), on occasion, she is largely wired as a devoted submissive to the one and only man that inspired her to inform her friends she had finally "met her match." Dragged forcibly from the private lifestyle to into the public scene by her Sir's preferences, she has found that some amazing experiences, kindred, and even dear family were to be found in the adventure.

Her contributions in a presentation forum usually focus on the psychological, rather than technical, aspects of what makes a good (or bad) scene (this, of course, means aside from the contribution of blood, sweat, and/or tears that often accompany any co-presenting with her Sir).

With a penchant for analyzing the internal wiring of what we do, she offers an insight based on years of experience and reflection - not just on the reasons for the adrenaline soaked highs of an extreme version of our lifestyle, but also the very unique emotional complexities of it. She lives a charmed and happy life with her Sir and their small menagerie of quadrupeds, in Florida.

He has previously given presentations for GMSMA, Leatherfest, TES, TNG3, Black Rose, TES's Queer SIG, TES Fest, Leather Retreat, Thunder in the Mountains, South Plains Leatherfest, International Ms. Leather, Beyond Leather, and the Southeast Erotic Cultural Conference, but he is perhaps best known for his former website, http://lthredge.com/, a collection of links, essays, and kinky resources.

He also spearheaded 100 Bloggers, an effort to get more kinky folk writing blogs. As his name and online moniker would suggest, he enjoys a wide range of edge play activities, from breath control to weaponsex to anesthesia and knockout play, though he also has a passion for stogie scenes, clean classic Japanese hemp rope bondage, and prolonged, intimate inner thigh beatings.
