DaDoc is a physician practicing in New England within a primary health care setting. As such he advocates heavily for safety within play scenes (in a reasonable way) and advocates for a relationship with your physician should things go really really wrong and even if they don't.

That said, he is also an avid player and oft intense Dominant, described by friends in the lifestyle as persistently Dom. There's little he doesn't enjoy and little he won't try, given some bounds of reasonability. He is active in several groups and feels it is important to support teaching and bring another generation of folk into the lifestyle.

Midori is one of our favorite presenters at at the Fetish Fair Fleamarket(TM) and a NELA fan. Frequent sightings of her from around the globe make us wonder if she ever sleeps or if she's cloned herself. A sex-positive activist, she's made an improbable career out of being the world's traveling sexpert on the art of creative and sensual living.

Don't miss the groundbreaking book Seductive Art of Japanese Bondage which first cracked open the mysteries to Westerners, the hot essays in Wild Side Sex: The Book of Kink and twisted dark science fiction in Master Han's Daughter.

Murphy Blue is always prepared with a smile, a joke, and a length of rope. He has been bringing his kink knowledge and signature style wherever he could since the turn of the century. A self-claimed "American Rigger", Murphy tries to focus not just on the hows of tying, but the frequently forgotten whys. The interplay of people and energy through rope and gestures is something that should be passed along, and Murphy does his best to assist with that.

While most well known for his unique ropework, creative performances, bouncy demeanor, and intense love for Transformers, "The Blue" is also a scholar of different kinky skills, a skilled photographer, a budding writer, a practicing energy worker of multiple traditions, and a pretty darn good dancer. This world-famous rigger was recently recognized as "The Face of Amercian Bondage" at an international event. He is on a constant search for more information about the art of Shibari, experience of different fetish environments, and new skills to learn. Murphy travels the country with the lovely ladies of "Team Blue," sharing insight, gaining knowledge, and saving the world, one knot at a time. He has been welcomed to speak at various events and locations, including Shibaricon, TESFest, The Society, Albany Power Exchange, Rochester Kink Society, Black Phoenix, Bound in Boston, Wicked Faire, and others.

There is a tale of him being trapped and his only chance to survive was to suspend multiple women to please a dark council. When asked about this, Murphy only grins.

Silverdreams has over two decades of experience in BDSM, which gives her insights into what makes bottoms and submissives tick. She enjoys helping people new to the scene find their way, giving them the benefit of her years in real-life D/s relationships, as well as learning from others. She believes that knowledge shared during frank discussion, combined with a sense of humor, provides valuable tools and techniques so that bottoms can learn how to safely enjoy the entire experience, with emphasis placed on the responsibility of the bottom and coping with physical and mental issues bottoms experience. She is an opinionated, self-avowed bratty bottom who enjoys predicament play and rope bondage. Owned and collared by Septimus, she is an incurable shoe slut and has a blog exploring her love of footwear, various D/s dynamics and her own D/lg relationship at nakedconfusion.com. When not on Fetlife, she can usually be found tweeting up a storm under the name silverdaydreams.
