Is monogamy is a valid choice for people who can, and do possess the capacity and desire for a committed relationship? For the single person, we cover strategies for becoming known and developing a good reputation, even if you don't play casually. For couples, we will discuss ways for couples to preserve and enhance their relationship despite the ever present poly pressure. Lastly, we will discuss strategies for how to say “No” politely, but more importantly, how to convey your monogamous status to reduce unwanted cruising of you or your partner.
Michael is a largely monogamous dominant man and something of a private player who has been in and around the scene for well over a decade. He owned and ran Dragon’s Keep, one of the few N. California public play spaces outside of the bay area. Over a decade ago, he formed Sacramento's oldest and largest BDSM group, PleasureBound. The group is very dynamic and includes International Leather Title Holders, a nationally recognized leatherworker, and MAsT International leadership in its membership. He is also a co-director and occasional host of MAsT Sacramento Valley. Combining his passion for woodworking and BDSM, he created Torturewood.com and has supported a wide variety of leather title holders, community events, and groups with donations of time, money, and his art.
