River Dark is a poly dyke Top/switch, a writer and educator hailing from Vancouver, BC. She has been teaching for over 10 years, out as a pervert for over 25, and thinking about it all her life.
She is trained as an actor, but expresses herself artistically by writing and reading porn, teaching workshops and by creating a scene. While some of her workshops teach physical skills, she is most interested in the mind, so many of her workshops explore the psychological aspects of play.
River is committed to creating engaging, fact-filled and thought-provoking workshops. Her slave domenique has been River’s property for almost 6 years, but claims to have belonged to her from the day they first played. It came out into kink when it was 19 and embraced it with mind, body and soul. It spends a lot of time running around in its head, and enjoys sharing those thoughts with a wider audience.
Tifereth’s introduction to rope bondage (and the fetish community) came 6 years ago 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, her teaching and performing credits include Bondage Expo Dallas, Eurix, Helsinki Shibari, Shibaricon, FapCon, Dark Odyessy, Bound in Boston, and many more.
If you want to track her down at a con, just look for the group of people talking foot bondage; you’ll probably find her there with a handful of bottle caps.
