The Kink Karnival is designed to educate about our Community and lifestyle. We couldn’t accurately represent our lifestyle without bringing together the lifestyle groups that make up our robust and diverse community.
NCSF advances the rights and advocates for consenting adults in the SM-Leather-Fetish, swing, and polyamory communities. We pursue our vision through direct services, education, advocacy, and outreach in conjunction with our partner organizations to directly benefit these communities.
The Butchmanns Experience is an intensive educational weekend designed to provide an opportunity for self-discovery in pursuit of self-actualization. The event includes hands-on training in basic SM practices, protocol and rituals, and a view of leadership and obedience through the lens of Master/slave dynamics.
Butchmanns Experience allows us to explicitly visit areas that challenge and soothe us for the purpose of identifying who we are. Happiness comes from living authentically. When we are ready to be who we truly are, we encounter the next step on our path.
The emphasis of activities is on personal transformation and growth and includes intentional flogging, ritual temporary piercing, the call to serve and be served, and transformational mummification. These activities are further explored through in-depth discussions. The environment is structured to encourage safely entering new experiences, with the instructors and staff supporting each individuals unique experience.
We invite you to spread your wings and let your passions Soar.
Elevate your body, mind and soul with innovative workshops, panels, and discussion groups. Watch the community blastoff at the Southwest Master/slave and Southwest Bootblack contest. Ride the currents with your tribe in our signature Our Place for rituals and meditation. Indulge your flight of fancy in our exclusive nightly dungeons, community sponsored hospitality suite and the rollicking bootblack lounge. Skyrocket your heart and soul at the powerful Dance of Souls.
Soar at Southwest Leather Conference and reach new heights of Leather, Sex and Spirit with your tribe.
