In 2007 he explored and took his first baby steps into a different scene and began his journey as a Leatherboy. Despite protests, he refused to "put away childish things" and is proud to be a Leather little boy. He enjoys serving in whatever way that is, as well as finding any excuse for cuddles. He has presented for events and organizations across the country. He has also served as a Judge, Judge's boy, and Emcee for a number of contests and events as well. Including being the Leather Ambassador for CAPCon. He is the historian of Oklahoma Leather Association and an Associate Member of the Lonestar Boys of Leather. When having to be out in the "vanilla" world, he spends most of his time working in the theatre, teaching, gaming, and watching far too much YouTube.

Give the Lady a Hand
This workshop will discover the erotic art of hand balling as done with a female partner. Vaginal fisting has long been practiced in the lesbian community, but there is no need to be lesbian to enjoy giving or receiving this intensely intimate gift. As a gay man, Hardy has been long familiar with male anal fisting; even though the anatomy involved with a female is different, the intimate and powerful experience makes this one of his favorite kinks. Step outside your comfort zone and join us. Safety, preparation and active demonstrations will make this a memorable session.
The Male G Spot
An exploration of the prostate and how it can enhance and super-charge your sex. Once thought to be just for gay men, ass play has moved into the mainstream as more and more men regardless of sexual orientation, learn the pleasures of the "Male G Spot". This class will discuss hygiene, physiognomy and techniques and there will be demonstrations, so this is not for the shy. Be prepared to find a few surprises.
NEW & RETURNING PRESENTERS
Hear Ye, Hear Ye! Her Royal Highness SourPatch (she/her) is a demisexual Brat (with a capital B) and switch. SourPatch failed miserably to keep her mouth shut as an s-type and now embraces being the center of attention and finding trouble wherever she goes. She naturally fell into an M/s dynamic with her Daddy, Metalbyte, when they first met during a 3 am pancake run after a local munch; the rest was history. SourPatch takes pleasure in having run of the house and being an “Alpha slave” who bosses others around.
SourPatch has been an active member in her local community since 2016 and currently serves as the leader of East Texas TNG and Little Scouts Troop 903. As an educator, she has been able to teach on mind fuckery and ethical bratting, and facilitates discussions for new members to grow in their own journey.
Mind fuckery is a form of power exchange that allows the bottom’s mind to travel to new places and create their own narrative. But how can that be done without inducing fear? It is still possible to tantalize and tease the mind without scaring the bottom in the process.
Sacred Intentional Rebels Space is an intentionally cleansed and curated space for those who seek to find, or already have, the Sacred and Divine healer within and outside of them selves. How and what is sacred to You? How do you rebel in your life? How do you take up space? And how do You manage it all? These are questions we will talk about and process through together. This safe and creative space is presented by RebelKhaoSwXtch, pronouns are they/them/GoddXxX, is an always evolving, intuitive Being with focus on empowering and inspiring others on their own self healing journey through service to community via service to Self. This will be an organic and fluid space to fullfill the intentional and healing desires and necessities of those who are present. We dont do cookie cutter, twoo way structure here. Bring your vulnerable & authentic self and any WooWoo you gots to share. Bring comforting things like blanket and pillow/stuffie. Be comfortable in your clothes, and able to move and stretch freely.
