Master Cecil has been involved in the lifestyle for about 30 years, when at 18 years old he was picked up by a submissive and shown that a flogger, properly applied, is a VERY good thing. Since 2008 he has been living his dream as the lucky owner and lead volunteer of The Woodshed in Orlando.
Master Cecil became part of the public community when he attended the 2nd ever Orlando Munch in 1993.
Since December of 2006 he has been joined on his life path by his wonderful submissive, helpmate, and the real brains of the operation, his lovely Darcy, who has supported him and has made his dreams her own for the betterment of the community at large, and particularly Central Florida.
For several years, he owned a company called Dungeon Designs Inc. and ran the circuit of Leather conventions throughout the southeast United States as a vendor and sometime speaker.
The Woodshed is a dream that originated in the mid 90s after his first public play party that was held in a townhouse of about 800 square feet with at least 40 people packed into it. It was easy for him to ascertain that Orlando was in dire need of a safe place to play. His dedication to SM education was the other driving force in his desire to open an SM community center providing the community with a safe place to learn. Thus the dream of The Woodshed gelled in his mind and was refined by conversations with many people over the years and finally became a reality in January of 2008.
He has presented on the local, regional and national level and is now serving the Central Florida community as owner of The Woodshed and Producer of FIRE. He also works to make himself available to groups, munches and TNG gatherings throughout Central Florida and to conventions all over the Americas.
Darcy has been active in the public lifestyle since 2005 when she went to her first Orlando Munch. A year later she and two fellow newbies created the Newbie Roundtable group associated with the same munch, through which she met her dominant, Master Cecil. Together they have owned The Woodshed Orlando since 2008.
She is currently the event and education coordinator for The Woodshed, Producer of FIRE, and a member of NLA-Orlando, and in the past has been the class coordinator for the Orlando Munch, and a member and officer of
Safe Words Toastmasters. She has presented on topics as varied as bootblacking, relationships, and massage at events from Florida Power Exchange, to Spanksgiving in St. Louis and COPE in Columbus, Ohio.
She describes herself as Master Cecil’s submissive, partner, and general “bitch what gets shit done.” Master Cecil describes her as “the brains behind the operation.”

This class starts beyond the different types of whips and basic throws to get into targeting, use in play, safety, and adding an interchangeable cracker to any whip. It concentrates on techniques for short (3 foot signal) whips. Practice will be at the end of the class for as long as time allows.
You may have heard it called cell popping, dragon’s fire, or snake bite branding. Whatever you choose to call it, microbranding can be an intense and artistic experience. Learn the potential and limitations of this technique to ensure you get the desired effect, as well as how to care for your cell popping afterward. Wanna try it??? Bring a design as he will be picking one or two people out of the audience to get popped!
We’ll talk about the multitude of ways in which a submissive can provide service, from the purely practical to the purely pleasing. We’ll also discuss ways a dominant can encourage service, and how to graciously receive it. This class will discuss the nitty gritty of day to day life with a service submissive and their dominant and how it can be one of the most mutually satisfying relationships you’ll ever find. It’s time to delve beyond house cleaning and blow jobs (not that there’s anything wrong with that)!
Massage can be a wonderful form of service to a dominant, a delightful reward for a submissive, or even just something you enjoy doing for others. In this class Darcy will demonstrate the basics of massage, focusing on Swedish relaxation techniques and some of the best areas to massage from head to toe. She will also touch on some other common forms of massage and the different techniques they use.
