October 13, 2015: "A Working M/s Household"—James Gordon, Rebecca Doll, and Miranda Jade
Guests: James Gordon, Rebecca Doll, and Miranda Jade
In some literature, M/s households exist primarily to serve the physical needs of a Master or Mistress. In the real world, some entertainers, educators, and others use their M/s households in an "active" way to travel, present events or entertainments, handle conference organization, or support charity or even a business. The Master may not always be the subject matter expert, project lead, or person in charge. How does the "work" ethic merge with M/s dynamics?
Tonight's guests are James Gordon, Rebecca Doll and Miranda Jade, who share membership in the House of Artemisia, a poly household which works and plays together.
James holds a certification in clinical hypnotherapy and over the past decade has built an interpretation of power exchange which focuses on the individual taking power for themselves to bestow where they choose without dictates from state or society.
Miranda Jade is a kinky intellectual slut with nerd credentials that include a degree from MIT. As a librarian and researcher she brings a high standard of fact-checking, as well as an excellent lemon-basil gin and tonic.
Rebecca Doll, a self-described "exhibitionist pain slut," delights in tweaking minds and leaving her audience with mouths agape at the end of her scenes. She puts an academic background, including a master's degree in education, to work studying the more twisted desires of the human mind such as the need for control, violence, and self-destruction. Together these three focus on an understanding of our darkest motivations that is firmly rooted in modern understandings of psychology and supported by peer-reviewed research.
