Miss Velvet Steele

Miss Velvet Steele (she/her) is a dominant, cisgender, heteroflexible Leatherwoman with a penchant for electricity, scalpels, and needles.She has a wide range of life experience that helps her feel at home everywhere from the boardroom to the opera to the dungeon and all points in between. Miss Velvet is proud to have recently accepted her scurrilous, yet devoted, slave Todd into her service. She encourages curiosity, values everyone's contributions, and demands high standards from those in her purview. Committed to serving her community, Miss Velvet currently serves on the board of NLA-Dallas, volunteers for the Mentors Program, works on the staff of the NLA-Dallas NewsLeather, and is part of the Beyond Vanilla planning committee. As an educator, she has a passion for sharing her knowledge with others and believes in taking a holistic approach to BDSM that addresses the needs of the whole self and not just one’s kinky desires.

Building Your Kinky Character Sheet

You know you’re an expert flogger, or perhaps tea service is your jam; but have you considered how your own unique mixture of background, experiences, and personality traits are part of what you have to offer?  Have you ever thought about how these combine with our values, skills, and life obligations to form our kink identity?  In this class, we will use the paradigm of the character sheet to help us take a look at how the elements of our personal foundation inform our availability as a partner and community member.
