#IOL2018 Mr Contestant: Ben Workman

April 5, 2018



Competetitors for the 23rd Annual International Olympus Leather Contest have submitted their applications and are preparing to to compete in San Diego during Olympus Leather Weekend at the Events new venue the Crowne Plaza Mission Valley.

Ben Workman is one of three male competitors vying for for the International Mr Olympus Leather title this year.  He lives in Texas and is sponsored by Stray Toys and Woofstock Texas.

Here is Ben's Official Bio:


"Ben is a 26 year old leather pup and service slave who has been active in the DFW community for the past five years, which he considers to be the best five years of his life to date.  While he grew up around Baltimore, MD, Ben made Dallas his home about six years ago.  Even though the relationship he moved across the country for is long over, his love for the city has only grown over the years.  

After entering the rope scene in 2013, Ben fell head over heels in love with kink.  His love of puppy play led him to create the DFW Kennel Club group in 2015, hoping to create a community that was more accepting and accessible, and with better discernment and consent practices.  He is now grateful to see a flourishing pup community full of race and gender diverse people blossoming between the monthly bar moshes, quarterly hotel moshes, and annual Woofstock Texas pup & handler retreat in Cameron, TX.

His life was transformed when he experienced the Leather community for the first time.  Now, Ben enjoys his responsibilities as Mr. GPOL 2017, sharing his experiences as a trans man and helping to educate people about their privilege by pointing out his own.  He can be found bootblacking at various events around Dallas, teaching wherever he isn't asked to volunteer as security, or chilling at the Eagle.

For the past 2.5 years, Ben has been under the consideration of his owner, Katrine.  Although both of them are polyamorous and pansexual, their relationship is entirely based on service; devoid of sexual or romantic energy.  This might sound odd to some, but for them, it's perfection - the little family born of their mingled partners is precious to him, and he couldn't be happier under Katrine's hand."

Come see him compete May 4-6, 2017 tickets and informaiton available online at OlympusLeather.com.
