Alli has been in the BDSM lifestyle since 2007. She served in leadership of The Red Chair from March 2009 until November 2016 as an Officer, on the Board of Directors, and as Secretary of Operations. Alli educates on numerous topics. Those dearest to her are Lifestyle Accident Recovery and Bootblacking. She believes in and follows Leather traditions which became a precursor to her love of Bootblacking and leather care. She began her Bootblacking journey in December 2007 and in 2012 set out on the public aspect of her journey. Her favorite things include getting her hands dirty while she teaches and shares knowledge with anyone desiring that knowledge, rekindling passions for the magic of Bootblacking, and helping others realize the power they have in their hands to not only heal and preserve leather, but to create amazing energy. Some of her leather care talents include taking care of exotic skins, dye or ink detail/repair, micro-repairs, and the always popular erotic boot worship. Her Master, Craig, seems to always request the erotic boot worship…
Over the past 6 years Anne has been grooming and cultivating her idea and self-expression within the concept of BDSM and power-exchange dynamics. She believes that there should be a very deliberate Path of one’s own choosing, and then pursue that Path with faith and humility. An integrated life is paramount and all areas of her life inform her dynamic, and vice versa: Hours with a personal trainer and on the mountain bike trail (admittedly, she loves both) prepare her for the physical demands of her dynamic; as do her Faith and continued pursuit of personal growth (she recently began studying Nonviolent Communication with the patient suggestion of her sister).
She has chosen to be a slave and has patiently journeyed to find a Master to help her on that path. Starting in September of 2016, she entered a M/s Consideration with a sadist; Pursuing a Master/slave dynamic with a Sadist offers context for all aspects of M/s (traditional service and protocols), however it is especially the physicality of SM interactions – for her, only to be had at the hands of an experienced Sadist – that she finds most challenging and rewarding and which provides the framework for Suffering as a Service.

With travel to events and participation in various clubs and organizations either as a leader or a member she is quite busy, but in her down time Riches also enjoys in no particular order: gardening, biking, camping, kayaking, baking, rocking or chilling out to all sorts of music, being goofy, throwing puns around, watching movies, facing down fears of public speaking and being a warm lap for her cats. Oh yeah, and being a target for impact and intense sensation whenever possible, consensually of course.
Scarlett is a 42 year old, cisgender hetero-flexible slave. Introduced to the lifestyle two decades ago. She spent the first 10 years wondering what all the fuss was with the “public lifestyle”. After 10 years in the hearty Atlanta scene she knows the answer. She started volunteering with Sadistic Engineering which led to leading the first Little’s program for Frolicon for 3 years and a seat on the Whippersnapper’s board which she proudly retired from at the ripe age of 40. She co-founded SUBMIT (a yearly Atlanta based s-type only 2 – day event) in 2015. While teaching has always found it’s way into her life, clearly it is facilitating the learning of others that really yanks her chain. Her current self-improvement goals include growing her self-care skills, Acceptance Therapy, Belly Dancing, Paper-Mache taxidermy and hanging with her “Producer” posse. She has embraced being single and is very busy living the most important love story of her life, learning some pyramids are meant to be climbed alone.
