about master switchybutch & slave bahari
(he/him & he/him)

A Queer Transmasculine Master with a heart for service, SwitchyButch (he/him) is privileged to receive the service and surrender of his devoted slave and Owned property, Bahari, and the tenacity and loyalty of his shieldmaiden of over 16 years, Itazura. He is delighted to serve as the Director of Family and Community Services for the Atlantic Leather Family Alliance and is proud to hold the title of Bluegrass Leather Bootblack 2016. 


Finding sacred in the profane, SwitchyButch serves as Ordeal Master to those beloved to him, acting as alchemist and mirror so that they may see their own unspeakable power and beauty in shattered moments of utter destruction. Both a sadomasochist and a tireless learner, he particularly delights using his psychology education for nefarious purposes (Skinner boxes, anyone?) SwitchyButch revels the filthier things in life; has a penchant for sharp shit; and spends an abundance of time relishing in the finer pleasures this world has to offer, particularly cigars with good bourbon, boot worship, indulgent coffee service, and well-executed high protocol.


Bahari (he/him) is a Black Transmasculine Leather slave and Owned property of SwitchyButch. He is more than a little bit of a cigar slut, deeply passionate about the crafting and service of coffee, and equal parts devoted emotional support puppy and willing masochist to his Master’s sadism.


Equal parts mischievous puppy and devoted student of the Universe, Bahari is as likely to be found deep in soul conversation with other growth-minded individuals as he is to be laughing delightedly at the results of his latest shenanigans. Bahari resides with his Master and his metamour in beautiful central Kentucky, where he lives his life with intentionality in surrender to his Master.


Together they are sacred sex practitioners, Brothers to the members of their Leather family, and feed their soul by disappearing into the woods with their family to dive deep into energy work, bonding, and exploring beyond the edges of their comfort zone. Profoundly committed to authenticity and living their truth, their authority transfer is rooted in radical vulnerability, a mutual commitment to growth and to stripping away that which does not serve, and shared values. They are both dyed-in-the-wool activists and are deeply invested in the intentional cultivation of equity and justice.
