Keeping it Kinky has been the ambition of Mistress Kashiko for quite some time. She was inspired to do this site after many years personal research and frustration in finding appropriate resources for learning about BDSM and seeing others make terrible mistakes because they did not have the appropriate resources at hand. She founded Keeping it Kinky in the fall of 2011. While she is an avid advocate for BDSM education and openly acknowledges her involvement with the website, for unfortunate work reasons she does not publicly post her photo in association with the site. She hopes that this site will contribute to the general acceptance of alternative lifestyles so that she may associate her photo with the site.
Aside from her tendency toward alternative behavior, the Mistress is a huge animal lover and has taken care of a wide collection of animals from ferrets to snakes. She enjoys a wide variety of hobbies including leather working, chainmaille, computer programming as well as a laundry list of other crafts. The Mistress is an avid reader of a number of informational topics; she enjoys learning about crime, languages, poi, and a variety of other subjects. When she's not reading informational books, she enjoys fantasy novels, especially those written by her favourite author: Anne Bishop.
Kashiko Black has also completed a Bachelors of Psychology from University of Fraser Valley and plans to complete her Masters of Psychology but right now she is taking a break from the academics to pursue some other dreams including this website.
