Community Groups

The Kink Karnival is designed to educate about our Community and lifestyle. We couldn’t accurately represent our lifestyle without bringing together the lifestyle groups that make up our robust and diverse community.

National Coalition for Sexual Freedom:
NCSF advances the rights and advocates for consenting adults in the SM-Leather-Fetish, swing, and polyamory communities. We pursue our vision through direct services, education, advocacy, and outreach in conjunction with our partner organizations to directly benefit these communities.

Butchmanns Experience:
The Butchmanns Experience is an intensive educational weekend designed to provide an opportunity for self-discovery in pursuit of self-actualization. The event includes hands-on training in basic SM practices, protocol and rituals, and a view of leadership and obedience through the lens of Master/slave dynamics.

Butchmanns Experience allows us to explicitly visit areas that challenge and soothe us for the purpose of identifying who we are. Happiness comes from living authentically. When we are ready to be who we truly are, we encounter the next step on our path.

The emphasis of activities is on personal transformation and growth and includes intentional flogging, ritual temporary piercing, the call to serve and be served, and transformational mummification. These activities are further explored through in-depth discussions. The environment is structured to encourage safely entering new experiences, with the instructors and staff supporting each individual’s unique experience.

The 2016 Arizona Master Slave Contest Judges, Tally Masters, and Assistant

Facebooktwitter

To further support diversity in our community, we do our best to find all different flavors of judges, each bringing something unique to the judging panel. Below are our 2016 judges. We would like to take the opportunity to thank them for supporting the Arizona Master Slave Contest and the Master Slave Community in Arizona.

Our Head Judge for 2016: 

cheryl-beach

Cheryl identifies as a sexually fluid, slave-wired, Leather girl. She stumbled upon the BDSM community in an online forum, and for the first time knew she wasn’t a freak of nature. She ventured into the public scene in 2003, and has never looked back. The BDSM world opened new doors to exploration and authenticity that she never imagined existed. Her path is one of mindful service with a lot of ‘woo’ thrown in for good measure. Since the passing of her owner in late 2014, she has been learning how to navigate the kink world on her own again.

Cheryl is proud to have served as the Arizona slave 2014, past President of Arizona girls of Leather (AZgoL), and past Board member of Phoenix Area Lifestyle Society (PALS). She is also a member of Edgewalkers, Arizona Power Exchange (APEX), the Phoenix Chapter of MAsT, and Women in Leather International. She has served as a volunteer at SWLC and Behind Closed Doors in Tucson, and likes helping out with groups and events even when not officially volunteering.  She enjoys presenting on a variety of M/s topics, and will be presenting for the first time at an International event this fall. When the mood strikes, she can be found on her lifestyle blog at www.submissivecircle.com.

2016 Judging Panel

bio

Judge: Master Tiffany entered the BDSM lifestyle in 1999. She started on the submissive side but quickly found her Dom side. She found her love of the Master/slave life at her first Butchmanns Experience in 2012 and has not looked back since. She currently enjoys two collard slaves who help make her life wonderful. She has been an active member of local BDSM & M/s community since 2001 and enjoys traveling the country to conferences to expand her knowledge of the BDSM & M/s lifestyle.

 

20091003-ladyjol1

Lady JoL is a Sadistic Mistress who enjoys extreme play. Her motto is “It has to be done…” She’s been in the lifestyle 18 years and has learned some amazing things in the art of BDSM. Her favorite is extreme cbt. She has years of M/s experience and commands respect, protocol, obedience, submission and service. No disrespect, jealousy, lies, games or drama – period.

She is a founding member and Executive Mistress of ClubFEM Arizona, Phoenix chapter. She’s also a founding member and active in the Ladies from Hades. She is a member of APEX, MAsT, PALS and NCSF. She serves her lifestyle community in many ways.

In her vanilla world, she is a retired Certified Legal Assistant (CLA) with 25 years of legal experience. She’s twice divorced and enjoys her single life. She has five daughters and 8 grandchildren.

oblivionFather O’Blivion’s interest in the lifestyle started many years ago while growing up on the east coast, and continued once he moved to Michigan in the early 90’s and found like-minded souls on the bulletin board systems that existed in the days before the internet.

Since moving to Arizona in 2005, he has been a member of APEX, Phoenix MAsT and served as a Team Lead for Southwest Leather Conference. He has owned his slave sg_d since 2008 and enjoyed 24/7 owner-property status since 2011. He is a grumpy cantankerous SOB who enjoys bucking the system.

Anniversary Party Keynote Speaker: Master Cecil

Facebooktwitter

anniversary-featuredAs the weekend approaches, we want to give a shout out to our amazing keynote speaker who has come all the way from Orlando to spend our anniversary with us.

 

About Master Cecil:

Master Cecil has been involved in the lifestyle for about 30 years. At 18 years old he was picked up by a submissive and shown that a flogger, properly applied, is a VERY good thing.  Since 2008 he has been living his dream as the lucky owner of, and lead volunteer of The Woodshed in Orlando.

Master Cecil became part of the public community when he attended the 2nd ever Orlando Munch in 1993.

Since December of 2006 he has been joined on his life path by his wonderful submissive, helpmate, and the real brains of the operation, his lovely Darcy. She has supported him and has made his dreams her own for the betterment of the community at large, and particularly Central Florida.

For several years, he owned a company called Dungeon Designs Inc. and ran the circuit of Leather conventions throughout the southeast United States as a vendor and sometime speaker.

The Woodshed is a dream that originated in the mid 90s after his first public play party that was held in a townhouse of about 800 square feet with at least 40 people packed into it.  It was easy for him to ascertain that Orlando was in dire need of a safe place to play.  His dedication to SM education was the other driving force in his desire to open an SM community center, providing the community with a safe place to learn. Thus the dream of The Woodshed gelled in his mind and was refined by conversations with many people over the years and finally became a reality in January of 2008.

He has presented on the local, regional and national level and is now serving the Central Florida community as the owner of The Woodshed.  He also works to make himself available to groups, munches and TNG gatherings throughout Central Florida and to conventions all over the Americas.
