Polyamory, or consensual nonmonogamy, is the practice of having multiple intimate relationships, whether sexual or just romantic, with the full knowledge and consent of all parties involved. Consensual nonmonogamy tends to require more work than a marriage, since it involves meeting the changing needs of more than one other person at a time and may evolve in unexpected and complicated ways over time. Issues can occur when jealousy, lack of communication and openness, and ignoring your primary partner when NRE (New Relationship Energy) is present.

Let’s discuss some of the challenges that can happen and learn what Polyamory is not.

The percentage of female master/male slave relationships in the M/s community is quite small. Have you wondered why a man may want to be mastered by a woman? Why would a man follow a woman in an authority- based relationship? The male slaves will share their insight and will answer questions about the joy and value they have found living in total power exchange relationships with a female Master. They will be sharing their insight and answering your questions about the value he has found living in a total power exchange (TPE) relationship with his Master. 

Everyone over the age of 18 years needs an advanced health-care directive — to let others know how you want to be treat- ed if you become incapacitated — as well as a will to convey your wishes regarding property left behind when you die. As a Master or slave, what are your specific concerns regarding medical decisions to be made on your behalf or the disposition of your possessions? 

As time goes by dynamics shift and evolve. Often we are faced with life changing circumstances that make the collar just a little bit heavier to wear. Join us for a discussion of the challenges we face in long term dynamics and help each other stay the course with gratitude and humility.

This roundtable is for s-types that have experience in longer term collared dynamics of 5+ years.

This is a great opportunity for an honest conversation regard- ing what it takes to compete for the Northeast Master/slave titles, or any other Leather competition. Discover the reality of what the contest is all about and get answers to all your questions. 

The Northeast Regional Director of MAsT International will assist those interested in forming a MAsT Chapter in their communities.
