MTTA, Inc. is an all-volunteer, non-profit 501(c)(3) educational organization dedicated to consensual Master/slave and other alternative authority-based relationships. MTTA is based in the Washington, DC Metropolitan area and incorporated in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
“To provide education and support through a variety of methods concerning the Master/slave lifestyle.”
“To be a world class organization in providing educational, training, social and networking opportunities for adults interested in alternative relationships.”
MTTA was founded in 2004 by Master Taíno, who became the organization’s leader, serving as President of the Board of Directors and pro-bono Executive Director. A Board of Directors comprised of leaders in the Master/slave Community governs the organization.
When Master Taíno was asked in 2003 to create an event as a regional feeder for the International Master/slave Contest, he made two decisions to comply with this request. First the event, which eventually was named the Master/slave Conference, was going to be an educational event primarily focused on relationships. Second, a non-profit organization needed to be created to run the event.
Steve Desdier, a prominent gay accountant from San Francisco with vast experience with non-profits, offered his pro-bono services to get the non-profit status from the Internal Revenue Service, something he was able to accomplish very quickly.
After MTTA was approved as a 501(c)(3), it took over the Master Taíno’s Training Academy, which eventually became the MTTA Academy.
Since then, MTTA has become a major educational organization in the Master/slave community providing educational opportunities through a variety of programs.
- Master/slave Conference – An annual educational event attended by approximately 500 people from the United States, Canada and overseas.
- MTTA Academy – A program that offers weekend educational events for Masters (all genders), male slaves and female slaves since 2001.
- Master/slave History Program – Through this effort, MTTA was able to create and publish in 2016 “Our Lives, Our History”, an anthology on Master/slave relationships through history.
- M/s Development Center – A program founded by Sir Stephen and based in New Jersey, which was incorporated to MTTA in 2012.
- Master/slave Legacy Project – This project’s goal is to video record elders in the community to preserve it for future generations.
- MTTA CommunityFest – This is an annual chosen family reunion held in Baltimore since 2015 with the purpose of providing a social venue for our community to gather and raise funds for MTTA educational endeavors.
In addition, MTTA has been a strong supporter of MAsT International as well as MAsT chapters in the Northeast Region.
