Mad Patter is one of the founding organizers of BTNG. Mad_Patter is a relative newcomer to the public kink scene having only joined the Boston public scene in late 2009. Since then he has worked hard to become a fun and approachable sadist that prides himself able to walk the line between being laid-back and intense. He follows a personal motto of being an edge player that even non-edge players can play with. While he can often be seen cotopping (especially with his partner in crime DrSlashBlight), performing card tricks, lighting people on fire, and generally creating ruckus, his main drive is to constantly learn more about other kinky people while simultaneously exploring a variety of new, fun, and consensual experiences.

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.

Strap-on Jo (aka Jo Whole) is a pansexual switch woman whose love affair with other people's anuses went from private kink to a professional calling four years ago when she transitioned from being a statistician to being a non-domme professional ass fucker. She is only partly joking when she says is conducting an antropological study of heterosexual men, in particular their relationships with their own asses. Over the last 15 years, Jo has also had various jobs teaching people how to do things like ski, use a computer, and use electronic medical records software, usually not all at the same time. Lately, she has applied these skills to teaching classes on anal sex, sex toys, and strap-ons at MOB New England, TESFest, and the Urban Tantra Professional Training Program. In the last year Jo has made a hobby of producing and performing in porn as a form of artistic expression.
