Respect is something earned. And while most of us would wish to be respected in our community, it takes much more than great technique and posturing for others to truly want to trust, honor and follow you. Come hear Master Hines discuss in depth the mindset, attitudes and behavior any Dominant or Top needs to demonstrate for longevity and respect in this lifestyle.


BDSM Educator and Professional Dominant. Master Hines formally joined the BDSM community in 1992 in Atlanta Georgia and moved to the bay area in 2003. Core to Master Hines’ BDSM philosophy is spirituality through power exchange. His technique and approach to SM puts heavy emphasis on the spiritual connection between Top and bottom. His play ranges from sensual to sadistic, incorporating many styles, toys and fetishes. Master Hines has presented demonstrations, classes and private workshops throughout the Southeast since 1997 and in the Bay Area since 2000 when he was first invited to the Bay Area to present for Folsom Street Fair weekend. He is well respected for his flair and artistry with floggers and has given classes on many topics including Flogging, Spirituality and SM, Erotic Knife Play, Rough Body Play, Resistance Play, The SM of Hands, Sensuous Caning and more. Master Hines is also an accomplished artist specializing in contemporary painting.
