Born to kink on 6/9, The Rabbi is a Sadistic Bratty Daddy Dom, and has been called the "Prince of the Pervertables," "The Pied Piper of Brats" and "The Carrot Top of Kink." He thinks that the last one was a compliment. He creates his own unique toys including ceiling fan paddles, lego nipple clamps, and a mop head flogger to name a few, selling them in his online store, SINagogueBDSM on Etsy (and Fetlife). He's electrocuted people with slinkys, broken all Ten Commandments (over some's ass), and hit people with everything including a literal kitchen sink. Currently, he's working on the first of two Master's Degrees to follow in the steps of the early psychologist pioneer, William Moulton Marston, who was the creator of DISC Theory (Dominance / Inducement / Submission / Compliance) and Wonder Woman, which was originally intended to bring BDSM to the masses in a digestible format.

A thrilling introduction into fisting that will leave you thinking: "Isn't that too much lube", "So that's what's happening when I do that", and "Does my face look like that, too?" Be ready to hear OOOhs and Ahhhhs and HRNNNNGGG as Tugger takes to the sling to talk you through how to communicate what you want out of a fisting session and works against his better instincts to tell you EXACTLY what is happening to him. Teaching this entire class from the bottom, we'll discuss fun things to do with your fingers, the importance of lube, and how deep does this thing go? The only instruction that Tugger has given his top prior to this class is "I want you to make this class really difficult for me". So come prepared! ...With questions, but I'm sure if you want to clean out before hand too, no one is going to complain.
Tugger is the definition of a lady on the streets but a freak in the sheets. With a long list of kinks; from high etiquette to fisting, a poodle dog can keep you guessing (he also knows how to get jlube out of fur). Originally born in Wichita, KS, he began his journey as an "old guard" trained submissive at the age of 20. Feeling the urge to find out more about himself and Leather, Tugger moved to the Valley of the Sun to find personal growth in both his personal and fetish lives. Phoenix readily provided both as well as membership of the Phoenix boys of Leather, Arizona Pups and Handlers, and the title of Mr Phoenix Leather 2015.
Tugger is the proud puppy of the 2015 International Mr Bootblack, Bamm-Bamm and recently moved to join him in Cincinnati; where he has since joined the Cincinnati Sisters and the Titans of the Midwest to follow through on his passion of teaching and learning from others. Beyond his cutting wit, he is known for pushing the envelope in the Leather community by blurring the lines of what makes a man a man in a new "avant guard" way.

Active in the kink community for over a decade, Kinsey is a member of Indy Pets and Handlers and MAsT: Tippecanoe. When not lifting up a room with her enthusiasm and joy, she is likely cuddling her human pup Echo and her four legged dog Dexter.
In her vanilla life Kinsey is a dog groomer and that shows in her life as a trainer. Kinsey enjoys giving hot wax massages, grooming Echo, and is absolutely not a sadist, she promises... look it was just that one time. Okay, maybe twice, and she only punched that puppy a little.
As Indiana Trainer 2019 Kinsey’s mission is to share her passion for education, service and training, all while raising asexual awareness within her community.
Body drumming is a form of massage like rhythmic impact play where the drummer hits the receiver with drumsticks of different textures, sizes and shapes in sync with music, in conjunction with sensory deprivation via headphones and blindfold to create the illusion to the receiver that their own body is the musical instrument creating the sounds. It looks like this: https://go2.vpml.net/BodyDrumming The class will cover technique, equipment needed, music selection and more.

One of the hot topics in our community right now is around the definition and application of consent. This class seeks to move beyond the foundational ideas of "no means no," "yes means yes," SCC, and even RACK to try to look at healthier, more robust models in the exploration of a fluid topic. Come prepared to share and discuss!
