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. Kashiko Black is actually an alias originally created for this website. Since its creation, she has branched out to start Explore Sex Talk, which is focused on other forms of sex education.
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.
