Kinky Kollege Spring Break 2017
(partial presenter list)
IPCookieMonster is a sexual gymnast. She has been a kinky pansexual polyamorous pagan freak for several years, and has written extensively about about her deliciously deviant lifestyle on fetlife and her blog, slutphd.com. In the “vanilla” world, she has one of the best jobs ever: she’s a professor of sociology who studies the BDSM scene. In the “chocolate” world, she writes about and teaches kink, is a founding member of the firespinning troupe Hubris, and is an occasional burlesque/ropelesque perfomer. Having gone through everything from ballet to tap to fire to pole, she was starting to run out of forms of dance to study in her insatiable quest for new ways to sexily manipulate the human body when she was captured by the divinely inspired ropes of Murphy Blue. And lo, she found a new form of dance to obsess about (bondage) and got some new gods as a bonus. Once she had the epiphany that bondage is fucking awesome, she decided to start preaching the artistic, spiritual, and seductive powers of rope from the bottom.
Duke of Pudding (classes)
Affectionately nicknamed “Swoop” for his uncanny ability to bring new people into his circle of influence, The Duke of Pudding has a penchant for silliness while maintaining respect for his personal history, Leather heart, and the kink community. Conducting experiments in sadism, bondage, and mindfuckery privately for many years, Duke emerged in the San Diego public scene in early 2012, and can be characterized by his affable personality and penchant for the absurd. An advocate of creative play, he often enjoys finding unique ways to reinvent “traditional” BDSM stylings and employing unconventional bondage techniques in his scenes. He further enjoys facilitating workshops and teaching people how to play safely with their chosen toys, with a particular emphasis on impact play, electricity, and fire.
Duke is the current President of Club X San Diego, a non-profit devoted to BDSM education. He has additionally served on the Board of Directors for both The Stomping Ground and Leather Realm, and also was one of the organizers who first brought the Butchmann’s Experience to San Diego. He is currently pursuing a path of mastery through self awareness, and when he’s not elbow-deep in the ass of a community event, he can be found relaxing aboard his sailboat in San Diego Bay.
