Scorpion ONYX joined the Midwest chapter in 1998 after relocating from Virginia to Chicago and meeting Ed Gregg, a full member of the chapter. Ed convinced him to pledge and the rest is history. He serves as the current chapter President of ONYX Southwest leading the organization into its current phase of growth, community education and increased presence across the Southwestern region. He also serves as a member of the ONYX National Council.
Scorpion strongly believes in the Brotherhood and sets as his goal to help other people of color embrace their kink. He believes everyone’s leather journey is catered to fit their specific needs, but also believes all of us can contribute in some way to the growth of others. Scorpion is committed to the Leather/BDSM/Kink community and enjoys spending his free time exploring different kinks and getting to know other kinky folk from all over the world. He constantly challenges himself and his Southwest ONYX family to grow and serve within our region and abroad.
Scorpion's kink/fetish interests include Fisting, Dildo Play, Flogging, Spanking, Role Play, and Water Sports.
