Bio of Master Gator:
Master Gator has been an active member of the Leather community since he came out to his first NLA meeting September of 1999. Though he has looked back several times over the decades, he has never regretted the decision. Since then, he has been involved in several groups including NLA-Dallas, NLA-International, Leather Honor Guard, DFW Leather Corp, ERD, DFW Bound, and Dallas Mentors Program. He serves the community by volunteering his time and resources to support, promote, and work several kinky and leather events & gatherings.
Gator found a taste for the kinky lifestyle at an early age when he found that the books and stories that included domination, bondage, or disciple were the ones that interested him the most. In his early twenties he stumbled through the trappings of the kinky lifestyle with his girlfriends, make a lot of the common mistakes. He could tell that there was a part of this that spoke to him, but it was not until he came out to the NLA meeting that he found the support, guidance & examples, he was looking for to understand and accept who he is.
During Gator’s time in the leather community, he has been honored with his leather Master’s cover, presented by several of the covered Masters of the Dallas area in November 2010 for his steadfast support of the leather and kinky communities.
Ava Night Dancer found the kinky community in Dallas in 2015 and is in an M/S relationship with Master Gator. She is actively involved in the Women of Leather group and has served as the Program Director for NLA Dallas. In her time in the kink community she has grown and learned a ton about herself and others. She has taught several classes outside kink and is beginning to bring her love of knowledge sharing to the kink world.

This is a rich physical form of play that gets everyone’s blood moving and can be funny, dirty, bloody, giggly, primal and scary. Having an understanding of some of the pitfalls and safety concerns of this form of play can open a great pool of fun that does not have any real need for a heavy play bag. You have yourself and someone to play with? Then you have all you need. No heavy bags, expensive toys, or fancy tight fitting outfits…

What feeds them, what makes them want to come back and keep doing this? How can we encourage them and make them feel strong? Come hear the perspectives from both sides of the slash on how our M/S relationship stays strong and what we do to feed it.
