Master Cecil has been involved in kink for over 30 years, when at 18 years old he was picked up by a submissive and shown that a flogger, properly applied, is a VERY good thing. Some time later he discovered Leather and has been on a journey of growth ever since. He has presented on the local, regional and national level and has been serving the Central Florida community as the owner of The Woodshed since 2008. He also works to make himself available to groups, munches and TNG gatherings throughout Central Florida, and to events near and far.
Darcy has been active in the public lifestyle since 2005 when she went to her first Orlando Munch. A year later she and two fellow newbies created the Newbie Roundtable group associated with the same munch, through which she met her dominant, Master Cecil. Together they have owned The Woodshed Orlando since 2008. She is currently the event and education coordinator for The Woodshed and a member of NLA-Orlando, and in the past has been the class coordinator for the Orlando Munch, and a member and officer of Safe Words Toastmasters. She has presented on topics as varied as bootblacking, relationships, and massage at events from Florida Power Exchange, to Spanksgiving in St. Louis and COPE in Columbus, Ohio. She describes herself as Master Cecil's submissive, partner, and general "bitch what gets shit done." Master Cecil describes her as "the brains behind the operation."
TwistedLily is a dedicated top-leaning rope switch. She serves as an organizer of Rope Bite Atlanta and is an active member of MAsT Atlanta, the Atlanta Ritual and Protocol Society, Whippersnappers and Hitchin' Bitches Atlanta. The focus of her personal kink is power exchange/authority transfer, which she expresses on both sides of the slash. Having practiced rope for around four years, Lily is focused on advancing her own skill set while sharing her passion for intentional, connected rope play with beginners. Her rope style is practical, control-focused and influenced by eastern concepts of Kinbaku. Lily's career involves adult learning and she hopes to capitalize on that experience to best support her regional BDSM community.
