Mentoring & Training
I entered into a life of Leather back in 1972 in New York. I was blessed to be mentored by a true Old Guard Leather Man with deep insight and personal integrity. He instilled this way of life in me, and in so many others. I was called to take over his house when we lost him to cancer in 1982. Now over 40 years later I still hold true to the traditions of my Mentor. I strive to pass knowledge and insight along to others with a true and serious desire to live a leather life, a life of personal integrity, dignity and a compassion and concern for others.
I further believe that life has changed since 1972; some for the better and some NOT SO MUCH! So, with that said, I recognize that there needs to be a current and relevant presentation of the traditions and values my Mentor taught me. For me that means looking at each person seeking mentoring and take into consideration their personal reality. It is not hard to teach the traditions and respect one need to hold for a mentor and for the lifestyle when you are living it!
The Master's Spartans
Spartans – Those men for whom there is no question of their service to their Master.
Starting as a numbered slave and when and if they prove themselves into the role of sir under the directions of the Master.
This is a select and limited number of men who have proven themselves worthy of the Master’s time, trust and respect.Master
Stephen may approach a man about the Sparta Community and if he is interested he may request an interview with the Master.
If you are a man 21 years of age or over, regardless of orientation, yet open to fully be in service to and bonding with other men. If this is you, then approach Master Stephen and request an interview into the Spartan Community. This is a community built on respect and a bond of trust between our brotherhood.
I know that there are female members of our community who may want to be a part of the Sparta community, and to them, my apologies – this is a community I mentor in honor of my Mentor it will remain all MALE.
