Ms. Bonnie has been in the lifestyle for over 25 years and has been a slave to Master Dennis since 1997 when she met him online. She is the 2017 Southwest slave and is active in her local community and many events, APEX, SWLC, Sin in the City, and the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence – to name a few. She has presented educational classes on M/s and other subjects both nationally and internationally and she is the Mother of her loving family – the Dragon Clan.
She believes strongly in sharing the truths of her M/s dynamic with others. She tells anyone that will listen that slaves do not need to be perfect but are constantly evolving beings, and each dynamic is unique to those involved within them. She walks her path learning from others around her and from her own mistakes. Always being willing to stumble on her journey to being true to herself in her service to her Master and the universe.
Slave neeka is an avid believer in living life to its fullest by deciding what’s important and then making it a priority, being present in every moment, not spending energy on haters, and loving with all her heart even though it’s been crushed a few times. She is loyal and trustworthy to those she holds close, a true Hufflepuff who will no longer compromise her own values for anyone. As a slave, she believes in the Master/slave dynamic because of the extreme intimacy that’s shared when two souls can find near-perfect compatibility and compassion for each other to be and do their best. Slave neeka considers herself a power service slave that enjoys protocols and rituals that enhance any dynamic even if it’s not M/s.
Slave neeka has been part of the BDSM world since 2006. She started online with very little to no information. More information became available online and, as a result, she started going to local clubs and classes in 2008. Through these learning experiences, she was able to explore and learn more about herself. As a result, she passionately fell into power exchange and the satisfaction it brought to surrender to another. Slave neeka was in a long-term Master/slave dynamic from 2008-2020 and is grateful for those experiences that make her who she is today – an independent, strong, capable woman, aware of what she wants and needs from a partner in love and life.
Slave neeka holds the title of Colorado slave 2015 and has represented Colorado at Southwest Leather Conference in 2016 and 2013. She has attended and taught at events around the country including, but not limited to: Thunder, South Plains Leather Fest, Southeast Leather Fest, The Master/slave Conference in Washington DC (MSC), and Great Lakes Leather Alliance, and Behind Closed Doors. Slave neeka loves learning and considers herself lucky to sit among her peers to learn from their experiences and wishes to continue for a very long time.
