Southwest Master Orpheus Black

Orpheus Black is a published author and erotic educator specializing in hierarchical dynamics, non-monogamous relationships and extreme sexual encounters. This two-time Bawdy Storytelling champion has been traveling the country teaching his fun and light-hearted educational events for more than a decade. Orpheus is a regular presenter at DomCon: LA and is the founder of Cirque de Sade - a high profile group of Dominants whose mission is to advance the art of BDSM through a commitment to innovation, excellence, and active leadership in the D/s, M/s, and fetish communities.

Southwest slave Indigo Black

Indigo Black, wife and property of Sir Orpheus Black, has been not only a sub and slave to Orpheus, but also his lifelong companion and inspiration. Her journey into BDSM and the fetish lifestyle began when she volunteered to be Orpheus’ bottom and submissive in early 2000. Like Orpheus, Indigo got her start co-hosting the Severe Society radio show. Soon after that, Orpheus and indigo began their dark journey onto the fetish stages, performing at countless Hollywood hotspots such as the Viper Room, Club Blue, the Music Box, and Dragonfly, to name just a few. During this journey, indigo was not only an amazing bottom and submissive, but also an invaluable asset behind the scenes. Recently she participated in the Tyrant Thinks podcast together with Orpheus and his co-host Recks Robert interviewing people from all different aspects of the fetish world. Currently she co-hosts the Orpheus Black Show every Sunday afternoon on Chocolate Radio.


Xiaoyi is a slave at heart and a bootblack at large. She teaches about consensual slavery, bootblacking, BDSM, relationships, poly, and many other topics. She is most fulfilled in a 24/7 TPE style relationship and is poly-play and omni-sensual. Xiaoyi loves Leather, Leather, costuming, pain, and protocols. She flags orange and Leather Worship. Xiaoyi earned her BA from MSU in Chinese Culture and Lore. Her mission is to help create understanding and acceptance among people for each to learn and grow and be as they are. She works to do this through education and demystification. She serves her community before herself. She is a lifestyle coach and mentor who openly shares of her journey in hopes that she might help others who face similar challenges.
