The Arizona Master/slave Contest Announcement

It is our sincere regret to announce that our current titleholders, Master Gallad and slave Nixie, are unable to complete their title year for 2014.

We are grateful for their continued demonstration of the values at the core of this contest: authenticity, excellence, and exceptional service.

Master Gallad and slave nixie stepped up to represent this wonderfully diverse community and we appreciate their willingness to open their lives to us as our first titleholders. We especially want to extend our appreciation to Master Gallad and slave Nixie for reminding us that being true to ourselves is rarely easy, and the road less traveled takes some occasional sharp turns.

Please join the Arizona Master slave contest producers in wishing them both the very best in their new endeavors and thanking them for all their hard work in our amazing community during their tenure as our first AZ Master/ slave titleholders.

We look forward to supporting both Master Gallad and slave Nixie in their continued journeys.

The Arizona Master slave contest has provisions for this kind of event as suggested by SPL Enterprises, LLC to agree with the International Master/slave contest rules.

The Contest rules state:“In the event a winning pair cannot go on to the Southwest Leather M/s contest, and if the Arizona Master/slave contest owners choose to select a replacement pair, the title must be withdrawn from the original Arizona Master/slave titleholders who cannot compete and be awarded to the replacement pair.”

The great news for Arizona is that our Runners Up in the Arizona Master slave contest met the point requirements in this very close contest and have agreed to step up as both our 2014 Titleholders as well as agreeing to enter the SouthWest Leather Conference Master/slave contest.

Please help us to welcome new 2014 Master slave titleholders: Justin and Cheryl.

More information will be available over the next few days at the Arizona Master slave contest website.

About Justin and Cheryl:

Master Justin and slave cheryl met on Fetlife in the fall of 2008. After a couple months of hours-long phone conversations, they were able to meet for a few hours at the Atlanta airport. Six weeks later, Justin traveled across the country to claim his girl. They live a 24/7 Authority Transfer dynamic in their home, Serenity House, with their Leather family.

Until Justin’s heart attack and anoxic brain injury put life on hold in December 2012, they were both very active in the Phoenix BDSM community. For the past year cheryl has served in whatever capacity was needed to assist with His recovery. Theirs is a consensual non-consent relationship where service is a core component, both cheryl’s service to Justin and their combined service to the community.

Justin spent his 20s and 30s deeply involved in the BDSM world of the South, including time spent on boards, assisting with running groups, and occasionally presenting. He has a passion for humor in the scene and the female ass, not necessarily in that order, and has presented classes on both topics, as well as others. He is a past board member of SC-LOCK in South Carolina, and spent time in service to Master Doug Harris of The Sanctuary in Atlanta while also owning human property.

cheryl has been involved in the public BDSM community since 2003. She has a passion for leading submissive discussions and mentoring new submissives. She is proud to have served as past President of Arizona girls of Leather, as a Board member of Phoenix Area Lifestyle Society, and is currently a member of Women in Leather International. Together they are also members of Arizona Power Exchange, Masters and slaves Together – Phoenix, Phoenix Area Lifestyle Society, and are supporting members of National Coalition for Sexual Freedom.

They both have a passion for sharing M/s experiences with others and they have a new-found desire for educating the M/s community about end-of-life care decisions and being prepared for medical crisis. Thankful that they decided to marry in June of 2012, they were lucky to be legally covered during Justin’s medical crisis. Many in the M/s community, and beyond, are not so lucky. One of their goals is to share their experiences so that others may be able to protect themselves and their partners in times of crisis.

About the Arizona Master slave Contest:

This contest celebrates the Master/slave dynamic and is a positive outreach to the community at large in an effort to promote, educate and build upon healthy Master and slave relationships. The contest is for couples who self identify as Master and slave or Owner and property, regardless of age, race, religion, gender or sexual orientation. Contestants must be at least 21 years of age and have been in a declared Master and slave  or Owner and property relationship at least one year prior to the date of the contest.

The holders of the Arizona Master and slave 2013 title will be the Arizona State spokespersons for the Master and slave community through 2014. Title holders must have the ability to effectively communicate to the community what it means to live and identify as Master or slave.

It is expected that title holders will actively seek venues to educate the Leather/BDSM community on the Master/slave lifestyle. Presentations should include: speeches, seminars, panel discussions, etc. It is also expected that title holders actively pursue fundraising for the charity of their choice as a way of giving back to the community.

The Arizona Master and slave titles are not about a particular “look,” dress, body type, gender or sexual orientation. There is no required set of protocols the winners are expected to follow. Contestants are not required to have a formal “platform”; however, questions from the judges regarding any specific plans or goals the contestants might have should they win the titles are quite appropriate.

This title contest is an exclusive feeder from Arizona into the Southwest Regional Master and slave Contest held in January, at the Southwest Leather Conference in Phoenix, AZ.  The Southwest title is one of five feeder titles that compete in the International Master and slave Contest held at South Plains LeatherFest in Dallas, TX.
