Pup Havok, IPC International Puppy, 2019

Pup Havok is a slutty, sex positive St. Bernard who now calls Indianapolis, Indiana home. This boot-licking boofer lives up to his namesake in many different fashions!

Not only versatile in clubs and organizations, she is also versatile in the dungeon and the bedroom as Princess, hu-cow and lil bun to her Daddy.

Dodger is a huge advocate for mental health and believes we should not let our infirmities define our lives.

 

If you can’t find Dodger just look for the green puppy wrestling around with the other pups, dancing his tail off and being his mischievous self. Or if all else fails just yell “Squirrel” and he will come running and howling. 

 

Dodger has sat on puppy play panels, taught classes and judged numerous contests, most recently Mr. Puppy Europe 2019. 

 

Dodger is a member of the Michigan Band of Brothers, North Star Kennel Club and Titans of the Midwest.

Preston “wexx” So, Mr. International Rubber 20 (2017) and Mr. New England Rubber 2016

Preston “wexx” So is Mr. International Rubber 20 (2017) and Mr. New England Rubber 2016. He is the first male international fetish titleholder of Asian heritage and a member of the New England Rubber Men, Rubbermen NYC, Emborrachados (Rubbermen of Brazil), and Taiwan Rubbermen. Preston is the co-founder and master of ceremonies of the Mr. Rubber Mexico (est. 2017) and Mr. Rubber Brazil (est. 2019) contests, respectively the first rubber events in Latin America.

 

Preston has been interested in rubber since 2007 and has practiced the fetish since 2010. He was resident materials expert at Harvard College Munch, the BDSM student organization at his alma mater. In this capacity, he helped other students explore not only safe, sane, and consensual kink but also leather, rubber, spandex, and similar fetishes, at a time when the group was publicly vilified by Bill O’Reilly on Fox News and the Harvard College Republicans as a university-funded “sex club.”

During his title year as Mr. International Rubber 20, Preston evangelized latex fetishism on five continents, in 13 countries, and in 24 cities. The first MIR to visit Latin America and East Asia, Preston believes being a rubberist is inextricable from one’s person and is proud to practice his passion by wearing rubber out regularly, especially where fetish gear is taboo or seldom seen.

 

He enjoys mentoring new rubberists regardless of their gender or sexuality, especially through workshops at CLAW (2017, 2018, 2019) and DV8/Purple Passion (“Latex Fetishism 101”) about latex care, latex fetish practices, and the experience of people of color in the fetish community. Preston delivered the keynote at International Olympus Leather 2018 in San Diego, where he spoke about Asian and Asian-American experiences in the kink world. He has appeared in Box Magazine, Vice.com, iGay (iG), Watts the Safeword, NoSafeWord, and BLUBR to promote latex fetishism and inclusion in the fetish community.

 

As Mr. International Rubber 20 and a rubberist of color, Preston’s mission is to rubberize the world—to bring the latex fetish to places further afield and especially to unawakened rubberists. He still gives his time to these efforts today as a volunteer interpreter in multiple languages and as a co-producer of new events around the world.
