H3rself - Workshops

H3rself is a career academic scientist from multiple disciplines. In addition to probing the deepest natures of reality with her science work, she's spent many years exploring and documenting the psychology of transitioning genders and journeying through the worlds of kink.

After many years of teaching what she's learned from these worlds in smaller settings, it’s clear that this knowledge isn’t limited to being beneficial in their respective niches but play fundamental parts in human nature. Unfortunately, or fortunately, science hasn’t had the proper ability or resources to explore these realms, so most of these lessons aren’t nicely outlined in textbooks as she’d like.

As a kinkster, H3rself enjoys heavy SM play, playful DS, and exploring just deep this dark rabbit hole goes.

Kruella and Cat - Workshops

Kruella (Fet: KruellaA) and Cat (Fet: Litigatrix) have been prowling and growling around the Tampa Community since 2014. Their primal dynamic begins from the idea that every person in the Pride must undergo constant personal evolution to adapt and overcome repeated power struggles to prove that one has earned their place in the dynamic.

As the Pride Alpha, Kruella earns the right to rule the dynamic through force of personality, ethics, intellect, and will. The Pride operates on a “power with,” rather than a “power over” model, meaning that while the dynamic contains elements of traditional Dom/sub power structures, their dynamic centers around the Pride Alpha pushing each member of the Pride to grow individually and as a part of the relationship.

Kruella and Cat have been active in the Tampa Bay community, running Tampa Coffee Time from 2016 to present, presenting a trans* 101 class at FPE 2015, and taking part in socials and discussion groups from both the leather and fetish communities. Kruella and Cat have been honored to hold the 2019 International Power Exchange title, and represent the Tampa Bay community as the 2018 Florida Power Exchange titleholders.

Kruella and Cat have presented on primal and evolutionary dynamics, LGTBQIA issues, and primal play styles at Florida Leather and Fetish Pride, Women of Leather Florida, the Tampa Leather Alliance of Women, the Tampa Bay Leather and Kink Social, Kinky Camp-Out, and Critter Camp.

Whipmaster Bob - Workshops

Who is WhipMasterBob? Leatherman. Sadist. Pig. Owner. And too many other things to mention here. Suffice it to say, overly simple and incredibly complicated. His journey, in this thing that we do, began in 1974.( Yes, he's been around for a minute) Like a kid in a candy store, he's sampled and tried every flavor and sensation that he can. (PIG) Realizing very early on, that he was a sexual sadist, and having always been a dominate personality, his course was set. The tools of his craft vary wildly, but his love of and skill with whips, were what earned him his name. An unyielding need to give back and pay it forward, is what drives him. Honor, Integrity, Respect and Humility are the cornerstones of his foundation.

Who is WhipMasterBob? Seek him out. Say Hi. Have a conversation, and you decide.

Kimi Basil - Workshops

When you can’t control what’s happening, challenge yourself to control the way you respond to what’s happening. That’s where your power is!-unknown source

I have worked in the social work field for over 25 years with most of my experience centring on communication, learning strategies, behavior modification and pro-social development. Emotional intelligence is an area of personal interest. The processes around “drop” fascinated me when I notice similarities across several different experiences and sought more information specific to drop. I have been in the local kink community for only a short couple of immensely interesting and amazing years. Coming from an open relationship and finding navigating the complexities was not enough (insert LOL here)and having a historical interest in kink, I began exploring kink with my spouse. In my vanilla life, I am the mom of two, work and volunteer for a local children and youth organisation. I am honored to be invited to share knowledge at Wicked!

Frenchie and Phoenix - Workshops

His past experiences of gas lighting hindered his ability to be vulnerable. Some deep issues have been discovered through his journey especially while with Phoenix. Gaining confidence while smartly leading Phoenix, everything blossomed and intensified between them.

With her husband's support, Phoenix started her venture unknowingly finding unsafe situations. It was then suggested to go to a munch and discovered her local community had nice people. Here she found her voice and her passion for communication, transparency, and consent.

She continues learning from others in the community by attending workshops and classes and sharing what she has learned.

They started with a slow build of a strong foundation. A real approach to getting to know each other, unlike any other she experienced as it made vulnerability front and centre. Trust was slow but strong and has proven to be one of the necessities for their relationship to flourish. Words and actions matched, making growth super real.

Their journey has been a bumpy one, partly due to having 3 different languages between them... one might think that it would be easy to communicate......come and find out what their tools are and what has helped them to communicate in their D/s dynamic.

Going deeper...beyond words.
