PRESS RELEASE (4/28/2023)

The Kinky Tavern, hosted by three neurospicy individuals who are passionate about accessibility in kink spaces, is delighted to be sponsoring Southwest Master/slave sensory tent for 2023!


You might be asking, “What is a sensory tent?” or “How does it help?” Those who experience sensory overload for any number of reasons, of which there are countless, can often find themselves overwhelmed and anxious when interacting in a public space, a crowd, or just a rowdy place such as at a convention. Cons are busy! They're full of energy and noisy and so much fun! But, because of this, someone who is sensitive to sensory overload may be very  uncomfortable after a little while in such an intense space. In order to counteract these effects and to help people have a more comfortable and fun time, SWMS 2023 is offering a sensory tent! A sensory room or tent is basically just a space that is a little slice of cozy calm in the midst of the captivating chaos. It can allow for someone who is maybe feeling a little overwhelmed and needs a break so that they can continue, who may have had to leave the convention otherwise to take a break, listen to music, listen to nothingness, close their eyes, scroll their phone, watch a projector lightshow, play with fidgets, cuddle up with stuffies, and relax, knowing that once they feel better, they can rejoin the fun! The Kinky Tavern’s tent will be providing headphones which can be checked out, fidget toys, blankets, stuffies, pillows, and a light show projector/speaker combo to help whoever might need just a little comfy cozy time.

PRESS RELEASE (5/10/2022)

The Southwest Master/slave producers are excited to announce your 2022 titleholders, Master Michael and slave Rebekah. Master Michael and slave Rebekah were the Southwest Title Holders for 2019 and 2020. They graciously agreed to hold the SW title through 2020 when there was no contest held that year. They were unexpectedly forced to withdraw from the International M/s contest in 2020 because a member of their house became ill just days before they were to travel to South Plains Leatherfest. They feared this illness could be COVID so they decided to withdraw from the contest to protect the South Plains family and care for their household member through the illness. They believed they had lost their one opportunity to compete at International, due to this difficult decision.

Master Michael and slave Rebekah have stepped up and will serve as our Southwest Master and slave for 2022 (now, 2019, 2020, 2022), and will compete as our SW Regional Title Holders at International in March of 2023. Please give them your support and help as they step back into a Title Holder role to represent the SW Region for the remainder of this year and at the International in March of 2023.

Master Michael and slave Rebekah received their Southwest Master and slave Title Patches at Colorado Leather Fest on May 7, 2022.

Additionally, Master Trent and slave kelly feel this decision is in the best interest of the contestants preparing to compete in the next SW contest by giving couples in the Southwest region an opportunity to take time to prepare for the title run, which we are planning to hold in summer of 2023. As we get past this transition year of starting things back up post COVID, baring another world changing event, we believe we will have the Southwest M/s contests back on track on a regular schedule that will continue to foster support for the State, Regional and International Master/slave Title Contest track.
