justDerek's interest with rope began far before he realized he was doing rope. Early recollections include paying particular attention to the packing twine when his friends went for the box. He affectionately and semi-jokingly refers to ropey goodness as a "gateway kink." Sometimes referring to it as dance between participants, he draws attention to the connection being forged between the tie-er and the tied, reminding people not to lose sight of whats important: enjoying the experience. His unique perspective on rope is multifaceted and encompasses interactions from soft and sensual to firm and unyielding. With his playful teaching style, twisted sense of humor and fetishized giggle, you just might find yourself laughing while you learn!

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.

He has taught at events across the world including Dark Odyssey, ROPECRAFT, The Gathering, Shibaricon, Thunder in the Mountains, Frolicon, The Floating World, Winter Wickedness, WestCoast Bound, Rope Camp, NELA's Fetish Flea, and countless others.

sepiessa, a self-proclaimed YogaGeek, is immersed in a long-standing love affair with everything yoga (the mindspace, sense of floatiness, the squeeze and release, etc). She's practiced yoga since 1997 and was certified to teach by a well-respected school in the summer of 2003. Little did she know that years later she'd discover the many parallels between kink and yoga...

She runs her own vanilla studio in the greater Boston area and is in the process of bringing more yoga to the kink community. Her teaching style ranges from gentle to moderate to vinyasa flow, and she always accommodates her students' needs (vanilla needs, as she is quite happily collared!).

Sepiessa is also a licensed massage therapist and Reiki practitioner. Thai Massage is a favorite, as it allows her to actively work with the massage receiver. Her clients love it.

In response to a growing need, Sepiessa is currently introducing Thai 'Em Massage for Bondage & Otherwise (TEMTBO) in the community. She hopes to help kinksters become more comfortable and flexible in their bodies and thus have access to better and deeper kinklife experiences. Overall, she hopes to help people feel better in mind and body while becoming sensitive to their abilities to care for their kink partners.

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 When not on Fetlife, she can usually be found tweeting up a storm under the name silverdaydreams.

Twitch-the-Switch's rope fascination began early on while watching episodes of Wonder Woman. Duh... He wanted a hot woman in sexxy boots to tie him up and make him tell the truth. Hell, he still does! But his fascination with rope goes much deeper. Through his years of learning to tie he discovered that rope meant more to him than just restraining or being restrained. From rough and tumble, to sexxy and sensual, he feels that rope speaks to all of the senses as it encompasses a body and brings two people together in a scene. His teaching style focuses on learning to "tie the person" not just "tie the tie". And always with a focus on having fun while you learn. Because, hell... Isn't that why we all want to do this stuff in the first place?

Vivienne was Chair of the New England Leather Alliance (NELA) from 2001 through 2006 and had served as NELA's Treasurer from 1996 through 2003. She also holds the position of Chair of the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom and was one of the Co-Chairs of Leather Leadership Conference - Seven held in April 2003. In addition to leather activism she squeezes time out to be the Treasurer of the Greater Boston chapter of NOW, something she's enjoyed doing since 1989. Vivienne identifies as bisexual Jewish feminist and would like to be mistaken for Cher. Barring that, she'll settle for being known as a dedicated sexual freedom activist.
