Kinky Kollege Spring Break 2018
Kat and Dhyana have been tying and performing together as Bad Kitty Bondage since 2013. Kat has been tying privately since her mid teens and publicly since 2012. While Dhyana started out primarily as a rope bottom in many of the BKB projects, she soon began tying after the duo made BKB official. Now we both share the primary rigging and photography roles. In 2016 we asked our good friend and bad ass rope bottom MedullaOblongata to be part of our group. She dove into the rope scene headfirst in early 2014 and started tying with Kat not too long afterwards.
Our influences come from both Japanese and Western styles of rope bondage with our tying style gravitating towards asymmetry, imperfection, and fluidity while maintaining practical and functional forms. Kat and Dhyana are both kinda sadistic so don’t be surprised if we throw in some sadistic side notes and advice in our classes as well.
As a group we have presented at both local and national events, done rigging for film, and have participated in a number of live bondage performances. Our classes have included topics ranging from basic to advanced shibari forms, rope bottoming, suspension, and impact play. We enjoy being silly and sharing our fun and sometimes quirky tying style with people in the community.
Coco identifies as a submissive, a little, a leather girl and a bootblack. She’s been an active member of the community for a little over seven years and has recently earned the Southeast Bootblack 2017. She is also a Southeast Onyx Pearl Soror. Coco has a lot of passions in this lifestyle, but she considers bootblacking, ageplay, and emotional masochism to be her top three. Over time, Coco has learned how to merge her little with her leather and kink, which follows through to her bootblacking. She truly enjoys being able to provide care to the community by providing leather care to those who need it. Beyond all of that, she is a glitter addicted, rope loving, cigar smoking, and overall fun loving girl.

I am called Rob, Sir or Alpha. I identify as homo-flexible. I began my leather journey around age 17 when I met a Sir who took me under his wing and taught me several fundamental lessons. I was trained in old guard protocols, negotiations and consent. The lesson I hold dearest = “You must learn to be a good bottom before you can become a great top”. This lesson has allowed me to become a true switch. Over the years I have been pup and boy, and now I am Sir and Alpha. I am thankful to the men who have taken the time to train me as I go forth to do the same for others. I am an active member of House of AndOr, Club X San Diego, Fetish Men San Diego and a Delta Brother. My list of kink is extensive but above all I am an experimentalist. I have presented at SD Leather Pride, Fetish men, Delta brotherhood, Club X San Diego & Drummer Palm Springs
