Yearly Master/slave Conference to see over 500 attendees this Labor Day weekend

From August 29th to September 2nd, MTTA, Inc. will host the 2019 Master/slave Conference (MsC) at The Westin – Tysons Corner in Falls Church, Virginia.

Since its inception in 2004, MTTA, Inc., an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) organization providing education and support to consensual Master/slave relationships in the BDSM and leather communities, has produced MsC. The conference, which takes place every year over Labor Day weekend, is the largest, longest and most comprehensive educational event dedicated solely to Master/slave relationships.

Now its 16th year, the event has grown to over 500 attendees, and will include five days and four nights of educational and networking opportunities. The keynote speaker for Friday evening’s opening ceremony will be Richard “slave Rick” Levine, author of Jolted Awake: An Unconventional Memoir, which details his personal journey through Master/slave relationships as a valid path toward self discovery, enlightenment and spiritual awakening.

Other speakers for the event will include Blue Frost – winner of both the 2017 Northeast slave and 2018 International slave competitions, and Guy Baldwin – therapist, author and winner of the 1989 International Mr. Leather contest.

In addition to educational opportunities, MsC will also host the Northeast Master/slave Contest, which takes place on Sunday, September 1st. The winner of the contest will represent the Northeast region next year in the International Master/slave Contest in Dallas, Texas.
