Jay Falcon was born and raised in Puerto Rico where he was introduced to bootblacking at a young age. In his early teens, Jay was a member of a Police Academy where he began his training and love of bootblacking.

Jay began his public bootblacking career in 2011 and quickly developed a reputation for excellence, attention to detail, and superb technical skills. It was these qualities that earned him the titles of the 2011 and 2012 Northeast Community Bootblack and the 2012 International Community Bootblack 1st Runner-Up. He is the resident bootblack of the Providence Eagle and, yet, still finds the time to travel to and to bootblack at different events throughout New England such as Mates Leather Weekend In Provincetown, Cruisers bar nights in Connecticut, NELA's Winter and Summer Flea Market in Rhode Island, Albany Bound in New York, Mr. New Jersey Leather, Centaur's Mid Atlantic Leather (MAL) Weekend in DC, and CLAW. Jay was even approached and asked by the manager of Frye Boot Company on exclusive Newbury Street in Boston to provide services to the patrons of the flagship store, which he now does when he is not otherwise booked.

A member of the leather community since 1990, Jay is also a member of The Bay State Marauders, Fits Like a Glove (FLAG), and Mama's Family. He produces and tirelessly promotes many of the Providence Eagle's leather events. Jay coordinates the leather contingent at PrideFest Rhode Island, bringing many of the area's leather clubs and organizations together to march as one. Jay's service and dedication to the leather community have been recognized through several awards including the 2015 Rene Beaudoin Memorial Glove Award for Community Service, the 2016 Mates Leather Weekend Brotherhood Award, and the Pantheon of Leather 2017 Northeast Regional Award. Jay makes his home with Roy, his handsome, charming partner of fourteen years, in Boston, Massachusetts.

Sara Scalper is a genderfluid, queer, nonmonogamous ethical sadist who has been topping since 2002, has been involved in the kink community since 2004, and has been a part of the Boston community since 2010. They self-identify as 75% intersexed being, 20% Amazonian woman, and 5% primal male (these identities are constantly in flux), but are always 100% ethical sadist. Primarily a physical sadist and impact top, they trained in muay thai kickboxing for 5 years and dabbled in other martial arts, and tend to utilize these accumulated skills, along with a variety of implements, in their scenes on the regular. They also get great pleasure from being a "scene aunt" to newer folks in the scene, teaching them how to top safely (via classes or one-on-one instruction) and/or how to negotiate so they have safe, satisfying scenes. Sara has taught for NELA at several Fleas and at/for NH Kinky Con, Bound in Boston, Boston Invasions at the Society, Trans Spectrum Kinksters, Paingasms at the Society, MOB, Boston TNG, BKC, and Wicked Women. They can often be found with their lovely wife and collared submissive, AJ (who often helps them present their classes!), and their extended "kinky family," and love to talk ethical nonmonogamy as much as they do BDSM.

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.
