Avalon "Swayin" Blufield Pronouns: they/them

Avalon Blufield (they/them) originates from Memphis, Tennessee where about half a lifetime ago (13 years) moved to Bellingham, WA. Although they discovered they had a kinky/sadistic side to them in freshman year of high school, they were not actually able to delve into it until 2019 at the local dungeon, the BSPC (location now closed). Avalon delved into doing what they do best in the community by offering help of any kind to hose that were in need in the community, in and out of play, as the Pink Puppy Paladin of the BSPC. Half a year later, Avalon became a “stand-by” member of the Cascade Raingers. After the BSPC local location closed, Avalon continued to keep the Pink Puppy Paladin alive within them, as difficult as it was.

Avalon is a switch, open poly relationship partner, a puppy and enjoys being both sadistic and mosaicist. Avalon enjoys impact, whips, temperature play, cigar play/service, puppy play, hypnosis play, rope play, roleplay and services. Although most of their time is spent in headspaces to get away from reality, Avalon has been focusing on bettering themselves, both as a puppy and person, but most importantly, a friend. A nerdy mother friend, in a sense, Avalon takes great pleasure in taking care of others before taking care of themselves. Although, they have been working on self-care more recently to make up for that fact. Avalon is ALWAYS ready to lend a helping hand to anyone in need and expects nothing in return. Avalon is creative and spontaneous, sometimes to the point of a learning experience, good or bad, when in the company of other people, both kinksters and friends, all while respecting boundaries to the best of their ability. Avalon learns from the past and looks to the future with hands held (or tied, depending on the scenario). In Avalon’s free time, when not working on college work, they enjoy video games, mortal and pestle work, casually playing with squeaky toys, and spends quality time with those they hold dear.

Master Kaddan Pronouns: She/Her/They/Them

I have more than 30 years experience of living the lifestyle. I spent three years of my life "training from the bottom up" to become the third generation of my Leather Family's line to come from that style of training. I currently have a Household with a mix of babygirls, slaves and property. I hold a Professional Human Services Degree (with emphasis on Cognitive and Behavioral Therapy). The forensic populations I worked with included violent offenders, those with mental health issues and those with HIV/AIDS, both on Federal and State levels. Now that I am retired from that aspect of my life, I can focus on the M/s community and volunteering. I am currently the Northeast Leatherwoman 2020, a full associate of ONYX NY/Northeast, president of the ONYX Pearls NY/Northeast, sergeant at arms of the ONYX Pearls National Council, treasurer and member of The Hard Pink Sisterhood, a member of MAsT Metro NY, a member of Leather Houses of Color Coalition (LHOCC), and former Pantheon of Leather Northeast nominee.  In the past I have presented at TES Fest 2016, NYC LGBT Community Center, Leather Leadership conference, Colorado Leather Fest, Great Lakes Leather Alliance, and the MsDs Conference. In the coming year I will be presenting for various local and national groups via Zoom. The topics I present on include Effective Communication 101 and 102, Consent, Poly Families, Mental Health and M/s, and LongDistance M/s. I use a platform called Second Life (SL) to facilitate lifestyle related discussions at my education-focused Master and slave venue, The Art of Submission (AOS). In 2011 I saw the need to think outside the box, and using the social platform of Second Life, I decided to broaden the definition of the BDSM community. After doing research I began to feel that there was something missing within the BDSM SL community and that the Master and slave dynamic was misrepresented and misinterpreted. From this the idea of The Art of Submission was born and developed. The AOS venue can be found in Second Life and what makes it unique is that all the facilitators are active to some extent in their Real-Life Community. I can understand that some look down on any platform other than Real Life, but it does not mean other platforms cannot be used for introductory information. Second Life is one of the ways that many use to explore D/s and M/s, therefore whether we like it or not it is a reality and I was taught that service can have many faces. The question is: are you open minded?

RODSBYRANE

Rods By Rane began as an idea. The concept was to build a product that would be affordable, fun to use, and create the desire to own one. While walking through a vendor’s area at a Leather/fetish/BDSM conference, the bright color of a plastic cane caught my attention, and that’s when I knew. Here was an instrument of pain and pleasure, simply constructed, with vibrant colors and that could provide hours of enjoyment. Rods By Rane was born.

Our products sold here are made from quality extruded acrylic. Each rod is carefully inspected at each phase of development. From the moment stock arrives and until they are wrapped and packaged, measures are taken to ensure that the rod remains in a pristine condition. We take pride in our work, and use only the best materials to provide quality products for you, our customers.

WELCOME TO RODSBYRANE!

We are the premiere manufacturer and distributor of acrylic rods on the West Coast.

We offer a wide selection of beautifully handcrafted acrylic rods for your pleasure and punishment; the choice is yours.

Our rods are available in magnificent colors, sizes, styles and shapes - transparent colors of the 'Ranebow' (ROYGBP); neon colors in green, pink, blue, orange and yellow, and clear. We also carry rods in solid colors of black, white and white frosted. Rod sizes run from the 'sensual touch' 1/16" bundled acrylic brush rods, to the 'Thud Sensation', ready-for-impact-play 1" round rods.

For those who love different shapes, available in 'clear only' style, we have our square rods and the infamous spiral rods, in common sizes from 5/8" to 1".

Whether you choose to give or receive, our acrylic rods will provide you with a lifetime of enjoyment.

Put some COLOR in those cheeks!

Sweetb Pronouns: she/her

Sweetb (she/her) hails from Chicago where she first ventured out over a decade ago to delve
deep-dish into the kinky world of LRA, GD2, LA&M, and CAP. After moving to the beautiful
PNW and having to put kink on the backburner for a bit, she came back in full swing to explore
this new and wonderfully deviant community, checking out several clubs and events, and calling
the (now closed) BSPC home. She serves as Secretary on the board of Cascade Raingers, a
501c7 group dedicated to providing a social space for Littles, Petplayers, and those who love
them. Her group hosts a (virtual) monthly munch, a weekly story time, and varied community
service.
Sweetb is a switch, ethically non-monogamous, a pupper, a Little, and enjoys play with sadism,
impact, edgeplay, roleplay, headspaces and service. A comedy nerd, she has studied improv
and sees a great deal of overlap with creativity and kink. She is passionate about sharing that
imaginative spark with others and tenants of improv, such as writing your own rules,
collaborating with partners, and going over the top.
Her community philosophy is to honor the pervs of the past who paved the way; provide space
and support to our current kinksters, (especially to our newer or underrepresented folx) and to
promote a future of acceptance, love, communication, hedonism and consent. She is honored to
be part of The Gathering and happy to have the opportunity to offer her educational expertise,
experiences, and enthusiasm to kindred kinksters.
In her free time, she knits one half-decent scarf per year, bakes a hell of a cupcake, attempts to
keep plants alive, and spends quality time with her chosen people.
