Ms. SouthWest Olympus Leather 2012

Master Trish started her BDSM journey in the lifestyle in 1999. She quickly became very involved the local BDSM club Desert Dominion, where she is a founding member. She first served on the governing council in several positions including President.  She was the main coordinator for the first ever fetish ball held in Arizona, and continued to Chair this event for three more years. She is a member of MAsT Tucson. Master Trish is grateful for the three years she was the Volunteer Team lead for Southwest Leather Conference and still actively works to support this event and volunteers as part of the piercing team for the Dance of Souls, a signature of Southwest Leather Conference.  In January 2012, Master Trish became part of a very small team that provides oversight to the Leather Quilt where she is honored to bring awareness to our leather history through the various clubs and BDSM organizations.

If asked, Master Trish would probably cite her work with the Butchmanns Weekend Experience as her single most important contribution to the BDSM and Leather community. She has been an Instructor for the past five years and enjoys teaching that BDSM and risk aware kink is a valid part of “who we are” when we engage in our fetishes. It took her years to learn that while S&M activities are exciting, it is power exchange that is her true fetish and where she sources her passion for kink.
