Join us as we welcome NE M/s Titleholders Raven Kaldera and Joshua Tenpenny.
This meeting is open to all who are interested.
This discussion tackles the issues of Master/slave relationships that are controversial even among M/s demographics. What right – and what ability – does the master have to deeply change the slave, and how should this be negotiated? We’ll explore different levels of consent and the lack thereof, and the tricky problems of ethics and communal fear that they bring up. We’ll talk about collusion and conditioning – or is it brainwashing? – as well as how to tell what’s realistic and what’s fantasy. While we welcome a wide variety of opinions, please come with an open mind and remain courteous.
Raven Kaldera is a queer FTM transgendered intersexual shaman. He is the author/editor of 39 books, including “Dark Moon Rising: Pagan BDSM and the Ordeal Path”, “Dear Raven and Joshua: Questions and Answers About Master/Slave Relationships”, and “Power Circuits: Polyamory In A Power Dynamic”. He and his slaveboy Joshua have been teaching and presenting workshops regularly for many years to the BDSM, Neo-Pagan, Sex/Spirituality, transgender, and other communities. Raven is currently the 2014 Northeast Master titleholder, and lives with his big poly family on a homestead in Massachusetts. ’Tis an ill wind that blows no minds.
Joshua Tenpenny is Raven’s Boy, and his devoted assistant, partner, and slave for life. He is a massage therapist, Shiatsu practitioner, and yoga teacher. The current 2014 Northeast Slave titleholder, he is the author of “Real Service” and the creator of the Service Notebook.
