Testimonials – Personal

In Their Own Words...

The testimonials you are about to read below are all absolutely genuine, spoken from the hearts of women who have trained at The Crow Academy, some for a short while, some for years. The entirety of the their experiences of training at The Crow Academy cannot be contained here for the sake of brevity, yet each one of these immaculate women felt strongly enough about their time spent with me that they volunteered to put their experiences into their own words, their own voices, for you to read.

These are women from all walks of life and it was my pleasure to show them the deep velvet warmth of the reality I call The Crow Academy. Though these are their real photos, some candid, some taken by professionals, for the sake of their privacy I encouraged each woman to use only her initials, a pseudonym, or her slave name.

“Honest, Passionate, Intense, Gentle, Knowledgeable are some words I use to describe Master Arcane. I consider myself especially lucky to have had Master Arcane as my first real Master. Being brand new to the BDSM scene, He shared and guided me through all of my “firsts” with Him. I couldn’t of dreamt up a better Master to go through so many wonderful experiences with. Not once did he take advantage or get impatient with my green-ness. Instead he handled my head and my heart with the upmost care. I will always look back on our time together with such fond feelings and memories. Through his special, alchemical type of training, He has given me inner strength and confidence that will honestly last me a lifetime.” — (Eva)

Thank you to slave Eva for many beautiful laughs, great conversations, and for proving how beautifully the connection of a Master and a slave can transcend limiting factors while remaining powerful and strong when both people are committed to the experience. — A

“I can truly say Arcane is one of the most intelligent and interesting people I’ve ever met. I have the utmost respect for him and enjoyed exploring with him and having my limits tested. Arcane will honor your boundaries and carefully attune his play to your comfort level, but also know when to appropriately test you and take you gradually beyond your comfort zone to discover new things about yourself and deeper D/s. He is one of the very few Doms I trust completely to be in his hands with complete confidence and peace of mind. He is an amazing person both inside and out and indeed one of the few true and rare Masters of his craft.” — (Persephone)

Thank you to Persephone for honoring me with your complete trust, and for your unbridled enthusiasm for any and all of the bondage games we shared. I also want to thank you and extend my sincere gratitude for your exquisite essay regarding your love of bondage which you graciously provided as a gift to The Crow Academy (“Why I Like Bondage” on Arcane Advice).

“Master Arcane is very dedicated to the art of bdsm. His style evokes visions of another time when romance and passion were the theme. He has a raw intensity I have yet to see rivaled. He will make you cry, scream, swoon from the magical execution of his masterful skills. A lover of tight bondage, He breathes life into the ropes as if they had no other design than to bind lovely submissive flesh. Everything is done in ritual — everything has purpose. His games are well thought out . A degree in psychology makes Him most formidable in the dungeon. He listens to every word, analyzing, calculating His next move. It is remarkable to experience His art directly as though a psychic gift was possessed, intuiting insights that surpass logical interpretation. Whether you desire an amazing fetish performer, an excellent rigger, an expert dominance trainer, one of the most well-informed bdsm consultants, or the most sincere and focused Master I have had the pleasure of …Master Arcane is true to the essence of male domination, and highly regarded in the community.” With Love… — (Ginger Savage)

Thank you to Ginger with whom I had the privilege of exploring the realities of how BDSM and the Fetish Arts could become not just a mental and physical journey, but a spiritual one as well.

“I had the pleasure of submitting to Arcane while his infamous dungeon was still standing up in San Francisco. He is a highly experienced, natural dominant who understands D/s on all levels….physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual. He is a beautiful male animal, a top-notch Dom, and unlike any other you will ever meet. If you are lucky enough to be contacted by Arcane, I wholeheartedly endorse him and encourage you to seize the adventure!” — (From E.)

Thank you to E whose bright energy and clear mind were such a joy to interact with as we devoted long hours delving into the immaculate connection of the Dominant and the submissive.

“I had never given much thought to exploring the BDSM world. I heard very little about it, just the popular misconceptions that everyone hears. But I had started getting a glimpse of that world through the club scene and was intrigued. When I met Arcane my curiosity got the best of me and I decided he would be my first Dom. I was not to be disappointed. It was a very erotic experience, and I was welcomed with open arms. I felt I was part of a family. Each experience seemed to open roads to new possibilities and sensations. I learned things about myself that were completely unexpected and fulfilling.” — (From S.)

Thank you to S with whom I learned new levels of how a body can be taken into a state of bliss through S&M play alternatively both fantastically light-hearted as well as beautifully intense, a truly wonderful celebration of the BDSM Arts.

“Master Arcane is everything that He says He is. 😉 The best piece of advice i can give any potential sub is to read His words carefully, take to heart what He has written and understand that He means every word of it. That said, i am lucky enough to have had Master Arcane as my first Dom and he is a Master of true quality that treats His body as His temple and frequently engages in intellectual flights of fancy aka great conversations. His knowledge within the BDSM realm is staggering and He is a firm believer and practitioner of safety. He is also a good man, kind and fun to just hang out with. His bondage skills are exceptional.” — (From R.)

Thank you to slave R for showing me how powerfully uplifting it can be when a Master and slave connect at the heights of intellectual exchange, and the creative magic that occurs when a Master and slave vigorously explore elaborately rich role play.

“Arcane is Great at a lot of things. It was pure pleasure being dominated by Him. The fact that he is honest and trustworthy made it easy to leave my life in his hands and beautiful ropes. If you should get an opportunity to be His sub consider yourself lucky.” — (From C.)

Thank you to C for adding to my ever growing understanding of the wonderful elegance of even the most basic components of the BDSM Arts.

“Master Arcane is an incredibly experienced Master in ways that Others can only hope to be. If you are truly ready to learn, and experience the real side of D/s, and able to fully commit yourself, then you certainly can’t go wrong with Him! Though it’s not always an easy path, it’s one that you will never regret.”

Naughty thoughts, deviant dreams… — (Rebecca R.)

Thank you to slave Rebecca with whom I explored a new mix of the most purely intense D/s and S&M interspersed with some of the most hilarious Fetish games I have had the pleasure of enjoying.

“i consider Arcane to be a true friend and a wonderful example of all that a Dom can be. Which is even more remarkable given that we reside in different hemispheres! But it is amazing how much closer people can seem thanks to webcams and telephones. He is many things, but one thing that initially drew me to Him and which i still admire about Him perhaps the most, is that He is perfectly balanced. He is exceptionally experienced and insightful and no doubt naturally talented *wink* with regard to the world of BDSM, and i have no doubt He is also a Master beyond compare… but He is also incredibly thoughtful, keenly interested (and experienced) in SO many other facets of life, and He is also dangerously funny! He is, at all times, HIMSELF. And that is what is so special about Him. He just happens to be a perfect combination of intense kink and genuine, honest to goodness fun. The first time i sat down and started to read His website, i was thoroughly impressed by His honesty and His wisdom. And i thought “what a cool Dom”. But when i saw who His role model was “(Shrek)”… i smiled and thought “what a cool MAN.” That was 1.5 years ago, and i’m fortunate enough to still call Him my friend. Arcane is one of a kind. =)” — (From L.)

Thank you to L for a magnificent friendship and exploration of BDSM concepts which truly and genuinely inspired my own evolution as a Master.

“Arcane was the best play partner I’ve ever had. He took me to even deeper depths of S&M through domination and submission. Through the looking glass he would say. We fulfilled many of my wildest fantasies and found some new ones. I became his slave and experienced a side of the world that is only known to the public by overly dramatic movies. I found that the connection between two vanilla people, non kinky, is not nearly as strong as the connection of a Master/slave relationship. The amount of trust and communication…in short, it’s intense! Arcane took absolute care of me and paid very close attention to me while I served him. It was a beautiful exchange of energy.” — (Helena)

Thank you to slave Helena with whom my own appreciation for Owner & pet Animal Play increased dramatically through a variety of legendary scenes. An extra thank you to slave Helena for the beautiful, original design of The Crow Academy logo. She was actually able to see the Dragon within the Crow, and magnificently express that energy through her artistic talent.

“Master Arcane was my Master. I have been in the fetish scene for many years, so I have seen how other Doms are like. I feel lucky to have hooked up with Master Arcane. I still think he is the best Master that I have ever met. He definitely has the presence of a Dom, which is important. I do not regret spending so many years of my life with him. I have grown and learned so much in those years. I have become a much better person from training with Master Arcane. So give him a chance to show you what he has to offer. You won’t regret it.” — (Jasmine)

Thank you to slave Jasmine for showing me truly and honestly just how deep a Master-slave relationship can really go.

      This Is An Educational Site:

      If you are looking for porn you will be very disappointed.

      The Crow Academy style is one of Romantic Domination & Submission, BDSM, and Fetish Performance Art. The lessons of The Crow Academy are based on Tradition handed down by word-of-mouth and obscure texts, then blended & refined through Master Arcane's personal emphasis on extreme utilitarianism. We do not claim the foundations of these techniques as solitary to The Crow Academy, but rather that through decades of Real World trial & error these techniques have been re-forged into a Modern, Unique System that WORKS. Master Arcane explored into the depths of BDSM & D/s, separating the wheat from the chaff so that students of The Crow Academy can benefit from the road map created as a result. It would however, be against the beliefs of The Crow Academy to claim that this style is "the absolute best" or "ultimately superior to all others" as we very much appreciate & applaud other styles of BDSM & D/s that are equally evolved.

      The Crow Academy style centers around Romance & Connection with one's partner, generating the very best Relationship possible in such an environment. It is Safe, it is Sane, and it is always absolutely, mutually Consensual. It is very much about Love, Energy, and above all that BDSM and D/s are ART FORMS to be perfected by the individuals with no upper limit to the Excellence one can achieve in this world, and in the depth of the Connection two people can create together.
