Master Dart's interest in leather and BDSM play can be traced as far back as his early childhood years, citing a huge fascination with what was being done to Robin on the Batman television series…and to the furry cowboys on Gunsmoke. When other boys were caught with porn magazines under their beds…Dart was caught with a roll of duct tape. Since then he has developed an immense passion for rope bondage, not to mention the men he likes to tie up with it. Dart began his leather journey as a collared boy and gradually developed into the dominant he is today. 6 years ago he met the love of his life, Sir Bart and together they became the teaching force (and husbands) they are today. They both believe in the importance of “balance” when exploring one’s dominant and submissive side in play, and that great benefit can come from experiencing both elements. Their kinky interests in addition to rope bondage include puppy play and training, chest and gut punching, and most recently, fire play. Among the cities, organizations and events they have presented in include sitting on the educational board for Mr. Leatherman Toronto, Fetish Week London, Thunder in the Mountains in Denver, GEARED Ireland in Dublin, Leather Pride in Amsterdam, and the Rome BDSM Conference.
Jack has been involved in the public BDSM community for 3-4 years. While Jack is a sadistic S.O.B. who enjoys many flavors of BDSM, his passion is Rope. He has been handling rope since he was a child and because of this rope can be seen as an extension of him. Jack’s interest in rope revolves around the control and versatility of its use along with the artistry of contorting his models to his will. The Atlanta Eagle is Jack’s home bar and he is known to have his rope with him for a spur of the moment demo or suspension. Jack is the coordinator for Atlanta’s Men in Rope. AMiR focuses on introductory rope skills with male identified persons participating as rope bottoms being tied by those who want to tie men. AMiR occurs monthly at Jack’s home and is his way of giving back to the community.

Kevin (Rubrr) and Hunter's journeys to finding their inner pups crossed two years ago in the best possible way. They had previously kept their kinks relatively private. Their first mummification was a direct result of open and honest "communikinktion": once there is a mention to try something three times, it gets done. Their philosophy is one of a passion to learn, a willingness to try new things, and an unapologetic attitude that the kinks they explore be fun. As they have grown and become more comfortable in their pup skins, so has grown an interest in sharing a broader variety of their experiences. Recognizing the importance of fostering connections between pups globally, whether they are in thriving local packs or isolated and remote, Kevin (Rubrr Rubrrpup) and Hunter (Hunter Draufganger) own and produce International Geared Up Pup, an entirely online contest which has as its primary mission "to promote human pup play with the highest regard for integrity."
