Within the BDSM subculture, the words “leather” and “family” have a variety of meanings and constructs. We’ve gathered members of several households to share their insights and experiences with these types of hierarchical households. Panel members are from a podcast ”Structured by Design” where a variety of M/s topics are discussed openly with very little edit. This event is for those who are curious about what drives people to seek these type of dynamics and structures as well as how one goes about creating and maintaining a leather family. There may also be some myth busting about what a hierarchical leather family is not! This discussion will be moderated and questions will also be taken from the attendees.
I have had more than 30 years in the Lifestyle. Beginning by “training from the bottom up”, I became the third generation of my Leather Family’s line, now heading a Household with a mix of baby girl, gurl, slaves and property. I have used the virtual platform, Second Life, to facilitate lifestyle-related discussions at my education-focused Master and slave venue, The Art of Submission (AOS). I am an Associate in Onyx Northeast, a presenter at TESFEST 2016, LLC XXI 2017 and CLF 2017. I am currently working on an educational project with Master David Walker.

Like all things our relationship continues to change and grow.
