Marius de Sade


My adventures in this lifestyle started as a self exploration. I was looking for something new, something more meaningful and satisfying than the everyday. I always knew I had particular tastes and I started exploring them. However, it wasn’t till I found an event called BMSL that I truly understood what I was looking for and that it was ok to want it. During that event I stepped on to a rollercoaster and I have yet to step off. Over the years I have learned and self explored many things like the pressure point control training (PPCT) that I was taught young in life as a police explorer. I trained for awhile to do mixed martial arts. I have devised my own methods and ways I have incorporated all the training and experience from my life into the play I do and love. About a year ago I decided that I needed to give back to the community that welcomed me and allowed me to develop within their folds.


Now with my submissive selene who has been with me thru thick and thin for nearly 20 years, so yes she is a saint, and the family I have recently Co-founded - Croi-an-Fhaolchon (English translation: Heart of the Wolf). A leather family devoted to helping, preserving and educating within the BDSM lifestyle. I am a former member of Stl3 and served on the events committee for Spanksgiving and Beat me in St Louis.

For the past 7 she has presented her workshops to great reviews in Vancouver, Chilliwack, Victoria, Edmonton, Bellingham, Seattle, Portland, Palm Springs, and Phoenix. While some of her workshops teach physical skills, she is most interested in the mind as the seat of power, so many of her workshops explore the psychological aspects of play.

 

As a presenter she gathers her information from her experiences both bottoming and Topping, as well as from the people in her life, the scene she has been exposed to, and the many workshops she has attended over the years.  River is committed to creating engaging, fact-filled and thought-provoking experiences. It is her intention that every workshop bring something new to each participant, no matter what their level of experience is – whether it be a new way of looking at play or simply a creative idea that they have never heard before. It is her goal for every workshop to be dense with information, supportive of the participants and fun to attend.
