FifthAngel has spent many of his non-working weekends traveling throughout North America teaching at BDSM events for the last 12 years. He has written two books, “The Finer Points of Pain and Pleasure,” a how-to guide for using pressure points in BDSM scenes, and “Your Pain, My Pleasure: Inside the Mind of a Sexual Sadist” as well as many magazine articles and interviews. FifthAngel and his wife Katie, live a “power-balanced,” monogamous marriage that is very much SM-oriented.
“Edge players” in all aspects of their lives, they enjoy vertical rock and ice climbing, blasting Zombie Clowns at the gun range, as well as whitewater rafting. When not dangling by a rope off the side of a mountain they stay at home on the outskirts of Denver, Colorado on their 5 acre farm. On the farm they care for a growing brood of animals.
