2014 International Power Exchange Title Holders

Stefanos and Shay

Stefanos & Shay (StefanosandShay.com) are a vivacious, unconventional D/s couple who have spent the last 8+ years educating, hosting, performing, volunteering, and advocating together in the BDSM community. Their entertaining, information-packed classes have been called "better than a Vegas act.” They are thrilled to represent the Pacific Coast region as the 2014 International Power Exchange title holders! Shay is an ER nurse by day, education director for the San Francisco Citadel by night, while Stefanos is all kink all the time as the Producer/Steward of The Upper Floor on Kink.com and DM & CEO of Bondage-a-Go-Go. Stefanos & Shay identify as pansexual polyamorous playsluts (and probably a few other P's they haven't thought of yet). Together they created the bondage education website remedialropes.com. Issues they are passionate about include risk awareness and healing/recovering from abuse. They are based in San Francisco and have performed, presented, and hosted around the country, including at Dark Odyssey (Winter Fire, Surrender, & Fusion), Thunder in the Mountains, KinkFest, Northwest Leather Celebration, WestCoast Bound,  OpenSF,  Kinky Kollege, Beyond Leather, the SF Citadel, Mission Control, the Exotic Erotic Ball, and Cum & Glitter. They've also been featured on KinkAcademy.com, PassionateU.com, Discovery Channel’s Oddities, and in over half a dozen documentaries across the world.

2014 International Pony Play Championship Grand Champions

Master Randy and Pony Just One Kiss

 

Pony Just One Kiss ("Kissy") has been in the lifestyle for many years, and has enjoyed pony play since 2003. Kissy was lucky enough to learn from a very experienced and well-known pony and trainer in the Northeast. Kissy enjoys anything her Master/owner will allow her to do (or try to get away with...frisky pony).  Kissy is a Connemara, which is indigenous to Ireland.  Connemaras are a short-legged but sturdy breed and are willing for the most part--which is a perfect representation of Kissy. 

 

Master Randy has been involved in the lifestyle for many years as well, but is relatively new to pony play. Being jenny's Master and gaining a better understanding of her enjoyment in pony play, He began to explore pony play as well as an additional interpersonal dynamic.  Master Randy and jenny enjoy the control and intimacy pony play contributes to their overall dynamic.  They are very proud members of the South Florida Pony Coral. The friendship and bonds built in pony play are lifelong and we treasure all of our friends we have made along the way. Best of luck to all the contestants and pony on!
