About Master Trooper Frank

Master Trooper Frank is a retired police officer who has served both in New York and Portland, Oregon for 30 years. His involvement in the BDSM community began in college and progressed over 40 years to include mentoring, teaching, and his greatest achievement - the creation of a Leather Family with Master Paul, slave willie and slave-candidate steve. Trooper Frank has been a regular presenter at KinkFest for many years, and presents at many events and venues around the West and Canada. His interests include emphasis on edge play and interrogation sessions, along with the psychology of mindfucking. The application and preservation of the philosophy of the "Old [Leather] Guard" is something that Trooper is passionate about, and that which is followed by his slaves and boys in training. That the application of sensation play is only half the equation if psychological and emotional connections have not been established is a firm belief. In June 2013, Master Trooper Frank, along with the members of His Leather Family and others, founded Bridgetown Leathermen, Portland's Men's Leather Fraternity.

Master Trooper Frank is the proud owner of slave willie and Master Paul (fka slave paul), who wear His bootprint on their hearts, and whom he watches over with a firm hand and a passionate heart.


About Master Paul

Master Paul has been involved in the Leather community since meeting his Master in 1995. After acquiring experience and demonstrating adherence to Old Guard principles, he was formally Collared by Master Trooper Frank 12 years later in 2007. In June 2014, Master Paul was formally Capped by His Master after earning the right to that title. Master Paul has participated in many of Master Trooper's workshops, and has also become a presenter in his own right at events such as KinkFest, PLA workshops, The 15 Association's Boot Camp, Bad Girls, Metro Vancouver Kink, Talking Kink, In the Woods, Leatherwoods, RCDC and Tribal Instincts, among others. He is frequently asked to present on a variety of subject including Master/slave relationships, boot blacking, and CBT to name a few. Master Paul regularly trains, cultures, and mentors boys and prospective slaves in the Old Guard traditions, and for possible integration into the Family. Master Paul works hand-in-glove with Master Trooper, slave willie, and slave-candidate steve in the administration and operation of the Family. In June 2013, Master Paul, along with the members of His Leather Family and others, founded Bridgetown Leathermen, Portland's Men's Leather Fraternity.


About slave willie

slave willie first served Master Trooper Frank during the 2003 Folsom Street Fair weekend in San Francisco. In the years that followed, slave willie became a slave-in-training, experiencing various BDSM activities under Master Trooper's hand, while learning the joy of submission. In 2007, after working to demonstrate his focus, service, devotion and obedience, slave willie was formally Collared by Master Trooper Frank. His commitment to Master Trooper Frank's precepts of Honor, Integrity and Loyalty help him to navigate daily life. slave willie relishes spending time with his Leather Family and is fully devoted to Master Trooper Frank.

As a member of the pre-eminent 15 Association of San Francisco along with his Master and slave-brother, slave willie attends various 15 Association events of which Boot Camp is his favorite. slave willie has the pleasure and honor to participate in Master Trooper Frank's instructional demonstrations at KinkFest and other events. In June 2013, slave willie, along with the members of his Leather Family and others, founded Bridgetown Leathermen, Portland's Men's Leather Fraternity.

KinkFest
March 29-April 1, 2013
Portland, Oregon

Sure, time in the dungeon is great, isn't that the point... or is it? For most of us, the time available for play is less than 5% of our day-to-day existence, so what about the other 95%? Is it possible to nourish your power exchange dynamic while you're working, doing the laundry, grocery shopping, or polishing boots? Come join us for an interactive workshop that will help you keep the intensity and passion alive 24/7 by looking at the mundane world from a purposeful Old Guard perspective. Make small changes in your mindset and behaviors and you'll see things in an entirely different way that will help your power-exchange relationship flourish whether you are deep in the dungeon or scrubbing the floor.

Second Annual Leather Dinner (Master Trooper)

KinkFest
March 29-April 1, 2013
Portland, Oregon

In an age that promised to bring people closer together through the use of technology, we are clearly seeing signs that humans are further apart from one another than any time in recent history. Technology, while a marvel to behold, has actually driven us into more isolation rather than togetherness. This is as evident in the Leather and BDSM community as it is anywhere else in society. We need to return to more traditional means of connecting with one another, and "getting real"- developing relationships that lead to connections, networking, cross-training, and most importantly- real, hands – on experiences with one another, so that we will be able to perpetuate and keep alive the traditions and practices to which we all are drawn.

Cock and Balls - They're not just for sex anymore (Master Paul)

Bad Girls presents Sunday School
August 5, 2012
Portland, Oregon
www.pdxbadgirls.net

Just when you thought they were safely tucked away in your pants, gentlemen, warped minds have concocted myriad ways to "awaken" the nervous system that serves the cock and testicles. In this session, I will utilize a sub who will undergo exquisite torture as well as downright visceral and "crude" ministrations. Percussion, electrostim, sounding, heat, ice, compression, binding, nerve wheeling, and creative use of SM equipment to arouse as well as punish the subject, will be demonstrated. Every seat will be close to where the whimpering, moaning, and groaning can be heard. Attendees will get to witness me using my stun gun to get a "rise" out of my boy.

Although these techniques will be demonstrated on the male anatomy, many can be adapted to trans and female bodies.

Interrogation Scenes and Techniques (Master Trooper)

KinkFest
March 23-25, 2012
Portland, Oregon

Come join MASTER TROOPER FRANK and Master Paul for an intense and intimate workshop on interrogation scenes. Watch the sparks fly as the powerful chemistry between MASTER TROOPER and Master Paul develops in this balls-to-the-wall battle of the wills.

The purpose of any given Interrogation is to retrieve information from the interrogatee. For purposes of those of us in the BDSM community, we can broaden the definition of an interrogation to include the recreational pursuit of dominating, captivating, physically abusing, torturing, and most importantly, psychologically mind-fucking the prisoner to the point that he or she gives up the previously planted information. In the process of extracting that information, the Interrogator is free to use the infliction of pain, electroshock, forced abnormal prolonged positions, food and sleep deprivation, beatings, mock execution, breath control, hypersound generation or sensory deprivation, painful bondage, and whatever you and the prisoner have negotiated prior to the session (if that is your relationship). Counter to this list is the most crucial tool in the Captor's pocket, and that is psychological manipulation, to include becoming the prisoner's friend and attempting to obtain cooperation. This workshop is a very involved and intricate class with the goal of giving the attendees the skills needed to negotiate, set-up, institute, produce and successfully complete a session with the interrogatee surrendering or "breaking" under the administered pain, pleasure or both. The psychological and physical dynamics will be discussed and demonstrated with my subject strapped into an interrogation chair. Aftercare and pitfalls and benefits of this type of activity will be addressed.

Warning: this workshop is not for the faint of heart. Be prepared for raw, powerful, intense, and emotional interaction between Master and slave, Interrogator and prisoner. At past workshops some attendees have been moved to tears as a result of the experience.

Trust, Loyalty, and Devotion (Master Paul)

Metro Vancouver Kink's Westward Bound
February 3-5 2012
Vancouver, B.C.
www.westwardbound.org

Trust. We hear that term used over and over again in BDSM and experiences in the dungeon, but what does it really mean? How does it develop and how can it be destroyed? How does it impact the quality and depth of interaction between partners in the dungeon? Why does it matter?

Loyalty is among one of the most powerful principles which can have a profound impact upon our emotions, either positively, or when faced with a lack of Loyalty, negatively. Learn how to conduct yourself with Integrity and how to effectively earn and maintain the Loyalty of others.

Most Masters and Mistresses ultimately want a devoted slave; someone who dedicates their heart, mind, body, soul, and even their life to their Master or Mistress. A true slave wants and needs to devote themselves to another person as an inextricable part of who and what they are at their deepest core. Learn how to be worthy of this devotion and how to give it unconditionally whether you are a Master, a Mistress or a slave.

In these days of instant gratification and "Velcro collars" it is becoming increasingly rare to find a Master, Mistress, or slave willing to invest the time, energy, effort, and thought into a power-exchange relationship that will give it the best possible opportunity for success. Learn how to utilize effective screening methods, how to actively listen and interpret both what is being said and what is not being said to make an informed decision before a Collar is locked into place. At its core, a power-exchange relationship is still a relationship designed to fulfill the real needs and desires of all parties involved. Learn how to openly discuss the terms of both short-term training contracts and lifetime contracts. Discover the purpose and meaning behind a slave's petition to a prospective Master and why the petition and a formal Collaring ceremony are so important.

Come explore that question with a panel made up of bottoms, Tops, Doms/Dommes, switches, and others. What are the roles and responsibilities of the bottom? What makes someone a bottom with whom Tops are eager to play with? We'll discuss how bottoms enhance the scene, negotiations, follow up and aftercare, energy exchange, and more. You'll have a chance to ask questions publicly or anonymously. It's expected to be a lively discussion! Tops, bottoms, switches, and everyone inbetween are welcome to attend. Who knows, you may meet a future scene partner!

In this session, I will utilize a sub who will undergo sensual arousal, exquisite torture, as well as downright visceral and crude ministrations. Rubbing, flicking, twisting, clamps, percussion, electrostim, heat, ice, nerve wheeling, weighting, and creative use of other SM equipment to arouse as well as punish the subject, will be demonstrated. Every seat will be close to where the moaning, groaning and whimpering can be heard.

Cock and Ball Torture

Cock and Balls - They're not just for sex anymore

Just when you thought they were safely tucked away in your pants, gentlemen, warped minds have concocted myriad ways to "awaken" the nervous system that serves the cock and testicles. In this session, I will utilize a sub who will undergo exquisite torture as well as downright visceral and "crude" ministrations. Percussion, electrostim, sounding, heat, ice, compression, binding, nerve wheeling, and creative use of SM equipment to arouse as well as punish the subject, will be demonstrated. Every seat will be close to where the whimpering, moaning, and groaning can be heard. Attendees will get to witness me using my stun gun to get a "rise" out of my slave.

Dungeon Safety, Skills and Etiquette

Whether you are a seasoned or novice member of the wonderful world of BDSM, it is sometimes a wise choice to expose yourself to the rules, practices and "etiquette" of dungeon behavior. In doing so, you can protect individual health thru the use of universal precautions and barrier protection, build better trust and relationships, assure a smoother and more intimate scene, understand how to handle emergencies, provide appropriate aftercare and how to coexist in a "public" or multi-user playspace. I recommend this workshop highly for new entrants into BDSM as well as more established individuals who may have gotten into a "rut" and can use a refresher course. Come join me for the foundational workshop upon which those that follow will build upon.
