Master Jim and slave marsha

Master Jim, International Master 2001, is a leatherman who has been involved in the SM/Leather community for over 25 years. During that time, he has presented seminars and weekend programs on Master/slave relationships across the U.S. and Canada. Master Jim is one of the owners of South Plains Leatherfest-International Master/slave weekend ( held in Dallas each year and is a co-owner of the International Master/slave title contest held at South Plains.

Master Jim identifies sexually as a gay leatherman; however, he is comfortable being served by persons of any gender or sexual orientation. Currently, he is the owner of a biological female slave, slave marsha, who has been in service to him for almost 20 years. Master Jim, slave marsha, and slave marsha’s mate, Cougar, live together as a leather family. Master Jim also has a Sir/ boy relationship with boy alex from Toronto and he has Keith aka “Beast “as his man in service.

slave marsha, International slave 2001, has been involved in SM for nearly 18 years. She has been in service to Master Jim of Dallas for almost 20 years as his slave, and prior to that, another 1 ½ years as his “woman in service.” slave marsha frequently assists Master Jim in presenting seminars on Master/slave relationships across the U.S. and Canada. Among other projects, slave marsha is a co-owner of South Plains Leatherfest –International Master/slave Weekend ( in Dallas, and is one of the co-owners of the International Master/slave title contest.

slave marsha has long viewed slavery as a “calling.” Those who are called to slavery do not respond to the call because they can do nothing else – they respond because for them, nothing else will do. For slave marsha, slavery offers a way of life in which she can best use her strength, talents, and intelligence in service to another.

slave marsha identifies sexually as a Femme leatherdyke, however, her desire to serve transcends sexual orientation, making it possible for her to happily serve Master Jim, a gay leatherman. As a Femme leatherdyke, slave marsha is grateful that Master Jim allows her to have a romantic partnership relationship with Cougar, a Butch leatherdyke. In July 2006, slave marsha and Cougar were united as life mates in a Union Ceremony officiated by Master Jim. Since early 2007, Master Jim, slave marsha and Cougar have lived together as a leather family. One of slave marsha’s favorite forms of service is riding her 2005 Harley-Davidson Softail Deluxe with Master Jim, while singing “Born to be Wild” and playing with Maximum Red Storm “Ryder” (a miniature Australian Shepherd) – the only one in the family who has to do what she says.

Master Jim and slave marsha were recipients of the Jack Stice Memorial Award in 2006 and the Guy Baldwin Master/slave Heritage Award in 2011. Master Jim received the 2004 Southwest Leather Conference Leadership Award and the 2012 Pantheon award for the South Central Region in 2012.

Always prepared with a smile, a joke, and a length of rope, Murphy Blue has been bringing his kink knowledge and signature style wherever he could since the turn of the century. An “American Rigger", Murphy tries to focus not just on the “hows” of tying, but the frequently forgotten “whys”. The interplay of people and energy through rope and gestures is something that should be learned, and Murphy does his best to assist with that.

Mr. Blue is also a scholar of different kinky skills, a talented photographer, a budding writer, a practicing energy worker of multiple traditions, and a pretty darn good dancer. He is on a constant search for more information about the art of Shibari, experience different fetish environments and learn new skills. Murphy travels the country with the lovely ladies of "Team Blue", sharing insight, gaining knowledge, and saving the world, one knot at a time.

slave jerri

“Wild at Heart”, fierce femme, tomboy, SAM with a crooked cracked halo balanced upon the tiniest of horns horns, and mischief maker extraordinaire, I am an owned slave! A proud member of Clan SnowDragon Leather family, Mama’s Family, producer of WILL Weekend, IMsL staff, and President of WILL.

I am very independent, yet simultaneously crave human “contact.” I have a service heart that would rather give than receive, I believe in fairness for all. I am intensely loyal with a strong dose of compassion and nurturing, and I wear my heart on my sleeve.

My Leather journey contains many twists and turns, which has made me stronger, wiser and more forgiving. It also allowed me to become more aware of who I truly am, what I want and what I need to do with my life. I look forward to the rest of my Leather journey with a smile and open arms.
