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.

RKO Army is the shadowcast performing in the Rhode Island, eastern Connecticut, and southern Massachusetts area since 1981. Known primarily for their legendary performances of the Rocky Horror Picture Show, they have added other fan-favorite productions including REPO! The Genetic Opera, Dr. Horribles' Sing-A-Long Blog, Buffy the Vampire Slayer's "Once More with Feeling", Serenity, Firefly's "Out of Gas" and "Jaynestown", The Devil's Carnival, and the Rocky Horror spinoff Shock Treatment. They have had on-going runs at two dozen cinemas over the decades, and they have also performed as guests at a long list of of theaters, conventions, universities, clubs, and parades. In 2013, they threw the National Rocky Horror 38th Anniversary Convention in Providence. The event hailed by many in the national community as setting a new standard for such events, so much so that they will throw the National Rocky Horror 41st Anniversary Convention in 2016.
RKO Army is all about having fun, but they are very serious about that fun. The cast's chief mission has also been their biggest reason for growth - Reaching out to people who feel the same. This has been accomplished thru three primary avenues - Contact, Venues, and Awareness.
The common theme within the Rocky Horror community emanating from the movie is "Don't Dream It, Be it". RKO Army has put that theme into practice by enriching themselves thru association with similar communities who also do the same, most notably in the Cosplay, Steampunk, Gaming, Rave, LGBT, Browncoat, Gothic, and Club communities.
While still performing at regular-run cinemas in the traditional method, the cast now has established itself as a highly effective road cast in multiple types of venues in Southern New England. They have become major parts of conventions and parades, and sometimes are called in as entertainment for local business organizations, causes, or even weddings!
RKO Army's operational focus will always be awareness of its audience. They love performing, but what will always supersede that is the relevancy of the entertainment to the audience. The RKO perspective is to never lose sight of the view from the seats you the audience are sitting in.

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.

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?
