NOLA Kink Community Update & The 2020 Agent of Influence Awards

2020 has been like a story right out of the B movie reels and pulp fiction noir. It is my sincere hope that with your assistance, we can end this on one high note after another, but we are going to need your help to do it. This year I will be working with N.O.B.L.E. as a neutral party to award members of our community The Agent of Influence Award. This award is to give recognition to the actions and strivings of people and organizations that made a positive impact on the local and nation kink community and furthering the culture of our community. In bestowing this award to key members of our community, I'd like to announce that this effort will also establish the Noble Petition Fund. The Noble Petition Fund will allow members of good standing to petition the leadership to get assistance with fees associated with attending virtual or in-person events. This award process will encourage more people to take part in the ongoing events and thereby opening up minds, hearts, and experiences that allow them to feel part of the community. There will be more on how you can help and shortly. Let us begin by introducing this award next.

This award began as I began teaching my style of erotic hypnosis and power exchange concepts to a select few. We formed a tight knit group that moves internationally and in all circles today. These awards began by recognizing each other's work, their progress, and their contribution to BDSM, Hypnosis, relational kink, and began extending out to our favorite authors, speakers, trainers, and community members so we can invite them to drink with us and tell them stories about how their words, works, and strivings inspired us. What would follow was a masquerade round table and a party of which all are sworn to secrecy. That is the spirit of these awards and how I encourage all of us to embrace being cultural agents that promote and embody the changes that they want to see in the world.

Appreciation is a fundamental human need, and all of us who practice the art of influence know that it is work. The bulk of that work often goes unnoticed, and the challenges often remain behind the scenes. I believe appreciation and celebration expressed through these awards honor an individual's work as being valued and meaningful in our lives and the culture of our communities. In celebrating the upcoming end of the year 2020, I will be bestowing Agent of Influence Awards to individuals and organizations who have used their influence to improve culture, visibility, depth of knowledge, and the lives of others through their efforts in the fields of hypnosis, influence, BDSM, and relational kink culture. The Agent of Influence Award can be conferred on the individual or organization. This recognition allows others to more readily discover the outcomes and their works, struggles, and strivings in a larger context that we are all part of. It also inspires others to make a difference in the world, challenge themselves and others, and encourage this work to remain visible in the mainstream culture. The first Agent of Influence Award of 2020 goes to New Orleans Bondage & Leather Enthusiasts (NOBLE). NOBLE is a BDSM pansexual support, play, and social group for the Greater New Orleans area. They are a not-for-profit, adult social organization devoted to the practice of BDSM dedicated to supporting this lifestyle through education and social activities.

I will be partnering with NOBEL to establish the Noble Petition Fund through the awards this year. To nominate someone, go to NOBEL's website and click on donations. A minimum of $5 per nomination is requested. Their website is and please take a screenshot of the confirmation of your receipt.

All monies from award nomination will go directly to NOBLE and will allow members of good standing to petition the leadership to get assistance with fees associated with attending virtual or in-person events. Recognizing those in the community will help establish a legacy that allows more of us to connect and be active within our connected communities. The awards are beginning early for NOBLE community members, and all awards designated with donations will be delivered to NOBLE, who will distribute them to the correct party by email or their private group by December 19th. Agent of Influence Awards will also be posted in my private discussion group on Facebook.

Think it through, and I ask you to post your story in the discussion groups, share this link, and talk about how people in these communities have inspired you and changed you for the better. Please ensure you keep this post with instructions and share your story to attract the energy and people emphasized in your nomination. This effort and this fund cannot be fully realized without you!! Please use this time to share your voice, share your story, and leave your mark by promoting our communities. There will be more updates on this coming soon.

My work is created to interact with those that enjoy themes of hypnosis, influence, and power exchange. Please share them as this brings others attracted to these themes into our circle. These words were created with passion, kindness, and appreciation in order to share what I enjoy with those seeking the right fit, together. That's just part of the benefit and pleasure of sharing.
