Miss Velvet Steele & Master Todd
Miss Velvet Steele (she/her) is a dominant, cisgender, heteroflexible Leatherwoman with a penchant for electricity, scalpels, and needles. She is the proud owner of her slave, Master Todd (he/him.) They share a passion for Master/slave relationships that are built on service, commitment, and love. In the dungeon, they enjoy all manner of sharp and pointy things. As educators, they enjoy making folks think and long-held assumptions and hope to inspire reexamination of your beliefs. Miss Velvet currently serves on the board of NLA-Dallas, volunteers for the Mentors Program, and is part of the Beyond Vanilla planning committee. Master Todd is honored to have served as the 2013 Southwest Master and currently serves as the Regional Director for the Southwest Region of MAsT International. As educators, they enjoy making folks think and long-held assumptions and hope to inspire reexamination of your beliefs.
Speculums, Sounds, and Scalpels, Oh My! Infiltrating the Mind and Body with Medical Play
Not just playing doctor in the dungeon, medical play encompasses a wide array of play styles, toys, and activities. Medical play is much more than violating existing (or freshly made) orifices, and when done correctly, it offers a way to deepen the intimate connection that occurs when we exchange power. In this presentation, Miss Velvet Steele and Master Todd will discuss a variety of play ideas. Class will conclude (time permitting) with a cutting demonstration to satisfy your, and their, bloodlust.
Building Your Kinky Character Sheet
You know you’re an expert flogger, or perhaps tea service is your jam; but have you considered how your own unique mixture of background, experiences, and personality traits are part of what you have to offer? Have you ever thought about how these combine with our values, skills, and life obligations to form our kink identity? In this class, we will use the paradigm of the character sheet to help us take a look at how the elements of our personal foundation inform our availability as a partner and community member.
