Divinity and Lady Michelle


 

ClubFEM SouthEast Florida

Divinity, HM Emeritus, is the founding member of ClubFEM Southeast Florida, one of the many chapters of ClubFEM international, now celebrating it’s 20th Anniversary. While she has since passed the leadership torch of the local chapter, she remains on the Advisory Board and continues her dedication and support of ClubFEM and the ever expanding South Florida community of Female Dominants and male submissives. She lives in a loving 24/7 Female Led relationship imparting love, fear and discipline in equal measure.  Divinity has been referred to as wonderfully wicked as she is beautiful and she fully embraces her sadistic nature, which tends to provides great amusement for her. As her slave, who is commonly referred to as “The Bravest Man In The Room” will tell you, just when he thinks he has reached the bar, she raises it even higher. While always the Lady, her wicked demeanor shines through and she flows easily both in and out of lifestyle settings. Regardless of the setting, be it a ClubFEM soiree or a vanilla society event, there is no doubt in anyone’s mind she is a woman who sets high standards for both herself and those around her and she is a “Goddess In Charge”. Many will remember her from BL2 and BL3, for the workshops she has presented and the High Tea she has hosted.

Having been blessed with creativity, an over developed sense of humor, and value of community, Lady Michelle is involved in and has provided leadership for many aspects of community service. She has many passions - vanilla and otherwise, and considers herself a “recovering Catholic raised in a military house”. This, she believes, prepared her to be a compelling Femdom even in light of Her deceptively sweet appearance. She manages to contain (barely) a gregarious personality, a huge smile, and a powerful presence within a petite package. She brings forth years of an ever growing appreciation of the D/s dynamic for Dominant Women and adoring submissive males. Lady Michelle is the Head Mistress of the Southeast Florida chapter of ClubFEM International, a private membership based club that is devoted to building and enhancing loving Female led relationships within a dedicated D/s dynamic. She endeavors to continue building a community of mutual support where members feel comfortable and are encouraged to speak with clarity about their thoughts, emotions, actions, and experiences and to inspire self-discovery, awareness, creativity, and shared wisdom.

Sea


 

Sea has been a BDSM gypsy of sorts for over 13 years and attends social and educational events across BDSM, leather, and fetish communities in multiple cities. He is proud to call home Austin, a city where a homeless crossdresser is a local celebrity who ran for mayor, a local band bases all its songs around the lead singer’s fetish for feet, and adults gather each year to celebrate the birthday of Eeyore — yes, Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh!

Sea has done his share to help, as they like to say there, keep Austin weird. His contributions to the Austin scene include hosting and promoting a fetish night for three years, during which time he wrote and directed, performed in, and arranged music for multiple fetish shows. BDSM influences his artistic expression, which has occurred in the form of fetish photography, DJing music for scene events, dance, and writings. He has also done stand-up comedy at multiple BDSM events. Sea regularly presents at BDSM events across the country with a focus on communication and psychology, especially the psychology of submissives. After attending DomCon Atlanta as Special Guest of Honor in October 2009, in May 2010 he was invited to join and now serves on the Advisory Board for weekend conventions DomCon Los Angeles and DomCon Atlanta. His current projects include speaking at college human sexuality class, visiting vanilla forums and taking a tactful stand for BDSM as needed, and providing information to those seeking out BDSM or ambivalent about their interest. His past contributions include chairing the Austin chapter of The Next Generation BDSM group for four years.

Master Raul


 

International Sir 2008

Master Raul and his partner, George, have been in the leather lifestyle for 12 of the 18 years they have been united. Master Raul’s passion is to learn and share with others his life’s Leather journey. He shares with others technical skills as well as life-changing events someone may experience ranging from health issues to relationships. 


Master Raul bases his ideology on past experience, fetish play and relationships which comprise three very important pillars forming his foundation and direction in life. The three pillars constitute: maturity, honesty and trust. Master Raul held the title of Florida Leather Sir of 2008 and went on to win the International title in San Francisco as International Leather Sir of 2008. The main interest in Raul’s life is the guidance and nurturing of his Leather family. He faces the facts that a relationship between two is not easy, and a family is all the more consuming as it requires a lot of work and commitment. In the end, the special emotional gift derived from having a family far exceeds any challenges that may arise. On a less serious note, Raul enjoys making the majority of his own fetish toys, loves to ride his motorcycle and enjoys the sport of hunting.

 

 


Bucky


 

Bucky is a deviant switch from the Chicago area. After seeing a fetish show at a play party, he became fascinated with rope bondage and quickly learned the skills necessary to do his own tying. Finding that traditional methods don’t always fit within his scenes, he developed his own style for not only rope bondage but for other types of play as well, preferring to follow the flow of energy with his partner and within the scene rather than doing what “The Book” says. Bucky has a degree in communications and has been presenting professionally for over a decade. His experience ensures that the audience will be entertained, stay engaged, and will walk away with an abundance of new and useful information. Enjoying the quest for knowledge and always concerned for safety in play, Bucky loves teaching his skills and sharing his ideas with others.
