Our performers from 2019
Headmistress Shahrazad has been an established Professional Dominatrix in the Toronto scene for fifteen years and counting, and is currently the owner and Headmistress of The Ritual Chamber dungeon. In this capacity, she passionately oversees a team of nine other Dominants whom she mentors in risk-aware, consensual, professional kink. She is honored to hold the titles of International Person of Leather 2016 and Ms. Leather Toronto 2016, and was awarded the 2016 Heart of the Flag Federation Leather Pride Award for her contributions to the local and international communities in that year. She acted as a mentor to the fledgling kink community in Budapest, Hungary which contributed to the successful birthing of the first ever Hungarian BDSM Conference, drawing attendees from all over Europe, the UK, Canada, and the United States.
Thanks to a long-standing passion for teaching kink both locally and internationally, Shahrazad has been a featured presenter at such events and venues as Toronto Bound, Toronto Leather Pride, Unholy Harvest (Toronto), Good For Her (Toronto), The Everything To Do With Sex Show (Toronto), Queering Power (Ottawa/Toronto), Montreal Fusion Weekend, Rocky Mountain Rebellion (Salt Lake City, UT), Beyond Vanilla (Dallas, TX), Purple Passion (New York City, NY), Leather H.E.A.T. (Los Angeles, CA), Keeping It Kinky (Rotterdam, Netherlands), and the First Hungarian BDSM Conference (Budapest, Hungary). She also teaches a full roster of over 50 unique workshops out of her Toronto dungeon, The Ritual Chamber.
Shahrazad’s 15+ year apprenticeship to a matriarchal shamanic spiritual path contributes to her fascination with the spiritual, mystical, and personal growth potential held within the practice of leather/BDSM/kink. She holds honours degrees in Social Work and Sexuality Studies.
Tifereth's introduction to rope bondage came in 2011 in the form of a surprisingly enjoyable futomomo tsuri. Since then she's drawn on her dual background in high-performance athletics and figurative arts to push herself physically and aesthetically on both ends of the rope. Known for her dynamic style of sadism, performative rope and creative approach to harness construction, she loves conveying her passion through engaging hands-on methods of instruction. A veteran educator and performer with credits including Prague Shibari Festival, Bondage Expo Dallas, Eurix, Helsinki Shibari, Shibaricon, as well as weekend workshops and performances all over the globe, she is most often found wherever the weird stuff is.
