Dov is a NYC based artist, photographer, sculptor, educator; Japanese rope bondage and single tail whip fanatic, computer geek and just has way too many hobbies. He has been in the NYC scene since 1993.

He has been involved for years both politically and artistically, creating works at Burning Man and other venues and is one of the the Two founders of Shibaricon rope event. His work varies from installations to performance art, both vanilla and fetish. His work was featured at Diesel Denim Gallery in SoHo NYC, where he created a Shibari rope window to highlight a photo series of their jeans by Japanese erotic photographer Araki.

As an international educator he has given numerous presentations and classes on everything from rope bondage and Japanese rope bondage to canes and whips at TES , Bondage SIG at TES GMSMA, Black Rose(DC), Shibaricon, Bound In Boston , Leather Retreat, The Tannery(Philly), Passional (Phily), TES2000, Purple Passion, Silk at Bard College, Conversio Virium at Columbia, Montreal Fetish Weekend, Hong Kong, Australia, Uber, The Gathering, and many other events.

As a Top/Dom and equal opportunity sadist, his areas of interest in BDSM and fetish and kink in general are a bit broad and include, but are not limited to: flogging, single tails, rope corsets and rope bondage in both Western and Japanese Styles, pony play, objectification, humiliation, knives, fire play, impact play (punching slapping etc.), pressure points, breath play, water sports. And that's just the short list. He's been tying things up since he was 5 and just keeps buying more rope for nefarious purposes to feed his passion for rope bondage.

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.

Trialsinner is a journeyer and creative explorer of rope. He is an innovator, a theorist, a philosopher, a practicing rope dominant, an educator, and a photographer. Distinctly focused on the innovation of rope bondage, he thrives on the coalescence of the physical and cerebral, and strives for expanded views and understandings of rope ideas both new and old. He maintains strong roots in the rope community in both Boston and New York, while participating in the greater community on an international level. The Flea was his first scene event, and he looks forward to it every year.
