In the past few years Scout has spoken at many venues and on online forums about suicide prevention, coalition building, and pup and handler play.

Master Scott

Master Scott

A lifelong native of Indiana, Scott has been active in the Indiana Kink and Leather communities for a number of years. He and his slave/co-pilot/best friend, lyon, have been exploring all things kink, leather and power exchange together for nearly 20 years. Ultimately recognizing that their relationship had always contained an underlying element of power exchange, they began a Master/slave relationship in 2012 and have never looked back!

Scott believes wholeheartedly in demystifying the M/s lifestyle. Aiming to dispel notions that his life with lyon is a never-ending series of debaucherous delights, he regularly shares their everyday experiences with his community to illustrate that every M/s relationship is a work in progress and that there is always room for a bit of silliness.

Along with his slave, Scott has had the honor to present on various topics for groups across the Midwest and beyond. Scott is a supporting member of the Indiana Leather Club and also serves as the current administrator and webmaster for MAsT: Indianapolis.

Scott is incredibly honored to have served, along with his slave, as the Great Lakes Leather Alliance Master/slave couple for 2017.
