SpankerSam and Sam'sGem


Been around a long time (collectively, 95 years in the Lifestyle), together for 20 fabulous years, and in a happy, successful polycule for the last four years. 

We’ve been involved in various groups in multiple states, founded a BDSM group when we saw a need in the community, co-lead a Little Scouts Troop, and admin groups online - and these are only our kink involvements. 😁

Constantly learning, having fun, not taking ourselves too seriously but always giving physical and social safety a high priority.

Sirena and Kitty

Sirena and Mischief Kitty

Sirena(they/them) and Kitty(she/they) first crossed paths at the DFW Dungeon in 2019. 

Sirena's journey into their connection unfolded through the mesmerizing allure of Kitty’s ass which caught their initial attention. Meanwhile, Kitty_Mischief was drawn in by Sirena's bouncy energy and charisma. They were eventually introduced by a mutual friend who discovered the two Puerto Ricans in the heart of DFW.  They quickly bonded over the irony of identical looking feet and ultimately captured each other's heart. 

Kitty_Mischief began her BDSM journey learning and enjoying various forms of bondage and sensory deprivation. Kitty once served as a submissive pet to a Mistress from Houston for about 5 years before leaning into her more dominant side. She is a well regarded femdom with experience with chastity, sounding, figging, fisting, edging, and cbt. In 2020 Kitty entered a mentorship with Sir Tressa and has become a successful fire top. She can regularly be seen at local and regional events volunteering and feeding her insatiable appetite for learning and lust. 

Sirena entered the community in 2019 and it was like finding a true fit that they could be a part of. They are well known to be a chaos-infused, creatively energetic, force of nature. It's Middle Daddy energy can be found enjoying their artful crafts of single-tails, needles, clowning around, and key holding.  Their talent for nurturing education has led them to teach at DFW Dungeon, OKLF 2022 and VISION 2024.  

Sirena and Kitty are contrasting ends of a scale. Sirena is a goblin of pure mayhem and Kitty is more reserved in her mischievousness. Their dynamic extends beyond the superficial as they've co-topped, co-bottomed, and frequently switched roles to accommodate each other's desires — a testament to the fluidity and strength of their connection in the world of BDSM.

Mama Gail pic 2022

Hi, I’m Gail (she/her). I’m a leatherwoman and kinkster that’s been kicking around the scene for a while. I’m known for my #LovingLeatherSpaces, and I hold the title of Women’s International Leather Legacy 2018. While my leather history began in the gay male bar scene, these days I find that I’m more drawn to women and trans inclusive queer centered spaces. I enjoy a great conversation and hearing what you’re passionate about. I’m low-key and go with the flow, but I do have a wicked kink streak that is snarky AF. My mind is absolute filth.

He has been kinky for over two decades and enjoys single tails, needles, floggers, paddles, and rough body play, not to mention bootblacking.

When not bootblacking or at leather events, Ursus enjoys tabletop RPGs, board games, and disc golf, not to mention annoying those around him with obscure movie quotes.


Reverse suspension : Hanging things from people

Not everyone is up for being lifted off the ground during a scene. However, the sensation of being pulled and tugged upon can still be achieved without leaving the floor. Through clamps, clips, staples, needles, hooks, and other fun supplies, we can hang different weights off the body to create new and interesting sensations! Class participation is encouraged (but not required)

Erotic Bootblacking

Bootblacking can be made sexy by doing more than just licking boots. Sitting in the stand doesn't have to just be sitting back and letting someone love on your leathers. From exotic and erotic ways to pull out a shine, to fun and distracting methods to wash and condition garments, this class focuses on heavy sexual play while bootblacking.

Scarlett rose

Scarlett Rose (she/her) is the current Ms SouthEast LeatherFest. Her journey in the kink community began over 20 years ago in New York City. She started out as a quiet, shy submissive who wanted to learn seemingly everything that she could get her hands on. As she grew with in the community, who she was evolved and changed as it often does. Within kink, Scarlett found her origins, but it always felt like something was missing.

Leather’s sense of service and community was what had been missing from the kink part of her life. She started to put one foot in front of the other and walk along her leather path right away. Through the years, she has enjoyed getting to serve her community by helping to organize SELF, teaching classes in her local community and serving her partners to the best of her ability.

Scarlett identifies as a bi-sexual, polyamorous, owned babygirl switch with a service-based heart and a sadistic streak. Also, she may not have a foot fetish herself, but she definitely is a shoe whore so will indulge yours. Look out for the Louboutin’s!
