JoshInTheBox & Bri Burning
JoshInTheBox (they/them) and Bri Burning (she/they) are two leather people who began building their authority exchange dynamic in 2015 after a community service potluck at their local dungeon. Both Josh and Bri started their individual leather and kink journeys in 2010 in the San Francisco Bay Area where they have volunteered, hosted events, and presented a spectrum of classes. Bri serves Josh and is owned by Them in all aspects but one of their dynamics where Bri is Josh’s Ma’am. These two love getting nerdy about dynamics, neurodivergent perspectives, and gender and sexuality spectrums. From titleholding and handling to behind the scenes, you’ll find them connecting and seeking to grow within many parts of our community.
