The Academy has been providing a place for Leather and BDSM education since we opened in 2012. Our goal is to provide both a superior playspace experience and valuable source of reliable guidance and information for our members.

The Academy is dedicated to providing a safe environment for people of all races, gender identifications, gender preferences, and relationship types to play and learn together without fear of judgement or harassment.

Our Founder, Christian V, has over 35 years of experience in Leather and BDSM Education and is passionate about exceeding your expectations.  As President and Educational Coordinator he has worked to make the Academy a place where people can feel confident in the information they receive and comfortable in putting it to use in our play areas.  A guiding hand is always available, so there is no reason to feel around on the internet to find information of unknown providence.  That is why we are here.

Our Mission:

“We are pending as a 501c non-profit corporation dedicated to providing education and support for adults that practice alternative lifestyles, particularly the BDSM lifestyle. We provide this via educational seminars, lectures, hosted group discussions, and free-form meetings. We welcome all sexual orientations, consensual relationship types, and risk aware consensual BDSM practices without discrimination.”

We respect our members, prospects and the rest of the community so we welcome your feedback and suggestions. Use our Contact Us page to tell us what we’re doing right or what we can improve on.
