Master Ami

Master Ami is a complex combination of brains, brawn (yes, even at only 100 pounds), and “woo.” A self-proclaimed lifelong student both in and out of the classroom, she has an insatiable appetite for learning. Her education includes a Doctorate (D.H.S.) in Human Sexuality; Master of Arts (M.A.) degree in Human Behavior; Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in English; and she is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Cultural Anthropology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, where she researches the evolution of human bonding strategies and social construction of intimate relationships. Master Ami uses her passion for personal growth and development to drive her exploration of human behavior—particularly involving sexuality and culture, and language and communication—primarily focused on polyamory, BDSM, and foundations of intimacy. She’s a board-certified sexologist and has been trained as a Master Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Hypnotherapy, and a Level 1 facilitator of Practical Application of Intimate Relationship Skills (PAIRS) workshops. She works diligently behind the scenes for a number of events in the BDSM community, such as Butchmanns Experience (nationwide), Southwest Leather Conference (Phoenix), and Sin in the City (Las Vegas). She's also been a U.S. Marine for over 15 years. Most importantly, she wants you to ignore everything you just read and come say hi, because she's on the verge of wearing pink tu-tu's to events so that she never has to hear another person say, "You are intimidating!"
