Raven is the 2018 Mx International Olympus Leather Title holder and anything sharp and shiny piques their interest. As the gateway to sensuality, brilliant minds are especially compelling. Believing that what one thinks affects what one feels and what one does, Raven has explored the intricacies of flirtation and seduction as well as chivalry and gallantry. These two seemingly disparate avenues led to discovering the power of intention and focus. Raven makes it easy to learn the keys to attaining both quickly and consistently.
Of course, razors and blades are sharp and shiny as well. Beginning 15 years ago with the acquisition of a vintage 1960 Gillette Fat Boy adjustable double edge razor, a fascination has blossomed into an extensive cut-throat razor collection along with the skills in their care and use. Raven's passion for the alchemy of heat, steel, water, stone and flesh turns a simple daily routine into a ritualized spiritual journey not to be missed.
Presentation appearances include Apex, Desert Dominion, Southwest Leather, Desire, Leather & Leis, Dark Odyssey, Behind Closed Doors, DomCon LA, DomCon NOLA, and Sin In The City.
Samsara is best known for her affinity for the color orange, mediocre drag beards, and a trail of glitter and tears everywhere she goes. Having entered into the BDSM and kink community as quickly as possible, Samsara soon found herself ravenous for knowledge and guidance, which culminated in a passion for leather principles and play. Through the years, she has experienced roles varying from little girl, femme daddy, masochist, sadist, and general weird ass bottom. Samsara is active in the DFW leather community and a proud member of the Leather Heart Clan family. In 2017, Samsara was granted the title of Ms. Great Plains Olympus Leather, and over time and lots of spilled secrets, nurtured a relationship with her title husband that continues to grow through both kink exploration and a shared devotion to diversity education. In 2018, Samsara was named Ms. International Olympus Leather, and solidified her desire to speak on the power of vulnerability, allowing your fetishes to be fun, and learning constantly how to dismantle privilege both in the leather community and the surrounding world. If she could pass on any hope to her fellow leather folk, it would be to make every day a little braver than the past, and to always make it weird.
Ben is a 27 year old leather man enjoying the roles of pup, slave, and Daddy. He has been active in the DFW community for the past six years, which he considers to be the best five years of his life to date. While he grew up around Baltimore, MD, Ben made Dallas his home about seven years ago.
After entering the rope scene in 2013, Ben fell head over heels in love with kink. His love of puppy play led him to create the DFW Kennel Club group in 2015, hoping to create a community that was more accepting and accessible, and with better discernment and consent practices. He is now grateful to see a flourishing pup community full of race and gender diverse people blossoming between the monthly bar moshes, quarterly play party moshes, and annual Woofstock Texas pup & handler retreat in Cameron, TX.
His life was transformed when he experienced the Leather community for the first time. Now, Ben enjoys his responsibilities as International Mr. Olympus Leather, sharing his experiences as a trans man and helping to educate people about their privilege by pointing out his own. He can be found bootblacking at various events around Dallas, teaching wherever he isn't asked to volunteer as security, or chilling at the Eagle.
After a whirlwind of a year spent with his Great Plains Olympus Leather title partner, Samsara, he has found himself in an amazing relationship with her which he could never have expected to have. His relationship with her is a surprising and fulfilling dynamic that swings wildly between Daddy/girl and simple lovers.
For the past 3 years, Ben has been under the consideration of his owner, Katrine. Although both of them are polyamorous and pansexual, their relationship is entirely based on service; devoid of sexual or romantic energy.
This might sound odd to some, but for him, it's perfection - his family born of mingled partners is precious to him, and he couldn't be happier with the life he’s been blessed by.
