I am here for for two things, to live a good life, and to throw a good party. I am looking for people in my life that understand and share my desires. I am also looking to Party/DJ for those like minded people wherever I can find a safe place for both.

Freyja Halifax - Rhythmic Flogging & House Dom (DXS Rapture | AWP) FB
Freyja has been in the scene for eight years, and has been a House Dominatrix at organizations such as BOUND, DXS Rapture, and now RISQUÉ. She specializes in impact play, needles, violet wand, and teaching to new kinksters. Want to play?

Been in the kink community for about 6 years now and she's always known she was a bratty switch. She has more than enough knowledge on how to help people feel comfortable and safe before entering the play space. Don't be shy to say hello, she doesn't bite...hard.

Persephone loves the nature of duality, the exchange of power, and being worshipped. She finds the deepest satisfaction when emotional connections blossom into trust, and from there having a bit of fun. Feel free to come over and strike up a conversation! She doesn’t bite (without permission ;3)

Ghost is a name that signifies the ethereal and mysterious. As the current interim president of House Raptim, she embodies the Black southern gothic as a budding sensualist switch with a haunting NC charm that lingers in the shadows.

🔥 Fire Fleshing by 🔥
For the last few years, I've been putting my passion for fire to good use and learned how to safely perform fire fleshing and cupping to provide a warm experience. If you've ever been curious, or you've done it before, feel free to stop by and say hi.
🔥 Cupping by 🔥
I’m Missy, I’m here to have fun and cupping is one of my favorite things to do! I do 🔥fire cupping 🔥, air cupping and wet cupping (not available at risqué). My cupping is either stagnant and/or massage depending on the scene and most of my technique is based on cupping therapy with roots in traditional Chinese medicine. And of course… Kink 😄
🦶 Foot Stuff 🦶
Caprox (Friendly Feet of DC/Baltimore)
Capriox (AKA “That guy with the ‘Ask Me About Foot Stuff’ sign”) demos various kinds of play involving feet. Foot massage, foot worship, foot tickling, foot torture - if it has to do with feet, feel free to ask him about it!

💉 Needle Play Staffed by 💉
A needle top, kinky freak and delicate flower, looking sweet and innocent while doing horrible things to good people. Their favorite scenes take planning, but simple things in life can be rewarding too - like an endorphin button resting on a clitoris.

Missing Kitti
While my kinks are many and varied, my passion is rope. My rope journey began as a bottom where I developed a love for bondage, predicament play, and suspension. When the pandemic hit, I began self-typing. It was a natural transition into tying others. As a top, I start gently to help people develop their own tastes.
