In terms of kinks, he is experienced with rope, bondage, violet wands, spanking, sensation play and kink photography.

Daisyloves (bio coming)
StellarJay has been a kinkster as far back as he can remember, and has been an active member of the kink communities of Vancouver and Vancouver Island for more than a decade. He’s a self identified sadomasochist that enjoys experiencing and understanding both sides of topping and bottoming. He’s an extrovert, and very much enjoys meeting and collaborating with new people and loves sharing his knowledge and expertise with anyone who is interested.
Js_deeva has been a locally active kinkster for roughly 15 years, can usually be seen with her partner J_ hanging out in the dungeon at MVK, and at other events and munches when able. As a switch, she has experienced a variety of relationships, roles and play styles, and is always open to mentoring newbies as they explore BDSM in risk-aware ways.
Redrobin Queer. Kinkster. Nerd. Slut. Educator. Activist. Redrobin is a Vancouver based international presenter of alternative sexuality and identifies as a queer, genderfluid (she/her), polyamorous, sex/body positive, top heavy switch. She’s been involved in her local sex and kink community since 2007. She began teaching lap dancing classes for The Bachelor Plan in 2010, then in 2014 taught her first BDSM class for MVK and was soon teaching regularly for the BDSM, polyamorous, sex, swinger, and queer communities. Formerly Vice President of Metro Vancouver Kink and organizer of the Queer and Trans event known as The Rainbow Connection. Her medical background has fueled her passion for the human body and mind, and she enjoys exploring her own as well as others. She wants to give back by helping others discover and explore their sexuality without shame or judgement, and is a firm believer that you can never stop learning!
Daremo has been around the local Vancouver scene since the late 90’s. He used to make and sell leather gear for many years, possibly even some braided ones. Daremo has taught single tail workshops in the past for Sagacity and MVK, and still enjoys giving some one on one instruction to friends.
He has always had a fondness for rope, but now rope has become his focus and passion. He has attended many workshops and intensives by many local and international presenters. He has chosen to focus on just one style of rope now.
something_wicked been switching with rope since 2014. She started out bottoming, but swiftly fell in love with self-suspending and topping as well. She founded Tied Up Vancouver, and also helps organize and lead the local chapter of Hitchin’ Bitches.
Wicked can commonly be found cackling beneath a hard point, on either side of the ropes. So if you follow the sounds of screams intermingled with laughter, there’s a good chance you’re going to find her. Outside of play, she’s happy to chat with newbies and experienced people alike to help build and improve the local community.
River_Dark is an international presenter who started playing in Vancouver almost 30 years ago when kink was still kinky! Starting out as a bottom who sometimes topped she is now a Top who sometimes bottoms. River has done massage as far back as she can remember and by the time she was in her teens everyone presumed she would become a massage therapist. Instead she continued to do it simply for the pleasure of it and that pleasure because sadistic a few years back.
akaSalisha has been a part of the Vancouver community for about 20 years. She identifies as a bisexual sadomasochistic switch, with a strong penchant for dominance and sharp, stingy sensations. She has always tried to incorporate joy, love and laughter into her play, often in ways the more serious find disturbing. Uncontrollable giggles are her kryptonite.
BoundbyBeauty (Scott) hails from Victoria and is a founder and past Vice President of Indigeo. He came into the Victoria scene several years ago and quickly developed an uncanny skill with single tail whips after being introduced to and mentored by a number of local and international whip experts. Though he is a playful yet sadistic top, he is often seen in the dungeon providing first time experience to those new to whips and impact play.
Xanthine identifies as a queer, sadomasochistic science nerd with a fondness for rope, ridiculousness, agony, and release. They focus their community efforts on education and promotion of responsible edge play with a goal of safer, more accessible spaces and a more diverse and welcoming crowd of weirdoes. They have taught at Kinkfest, Conception, Fapcon, Westcoast Bound, Dark Odyssey and other conferences. As a massage therapist and energy worker, they focus their play style towards channeling pain into healing, transformation, and empowerment for both bottom and top. As a clown and activist, they seek to smash the patriarchy by dismantling ego and promoting laughter, connection, and sincerity in the dungeon.
Ben is a member of the growing bootblack community in Vancouver (Unceded Coast Salish Territories). He’s been doing kink since 2002, and learning leathercare and bootblacking since 2012. He’s pleased to share basic techniques with anyone interested in the care and enjoyment of leather. Local bootblacks will be attending the MVK party in the evening, for further opportunities to explore bootblacking–get your shoes shined, boots blacked, gloves gleaming, and we also do jackets!
