Sir Robert Helms
Sir Robert Helms was born in Anchorage, Alaska to a father who served as a Staff Sergeant in the US Army and a mother who was a registered nurse. Shortly after being born, the Army moved his family to San Antonio, Texas where his father retired from the military, then to Beaumont, Texas for his mother to take a position as a hospital administrator. Sir Robert holds a B.F.A. degree in Studio Art with an emphasis in Ceramics, Photography, and Art History. After graduation from Lamar University in Beaumont, he became a sign language interpreter and shortly after, moved to Houston, Texas where he lives to this day and works as a nationally certified Sign Language Interpreter.
Sir Robert walked into his first Leather bar in 1995. Standing at the bar he looked to his right and saw a Sir drinking a beer and getting his cock sucked by a very handsome boy and looking to his left saw two other hot Leather men talking about Martha Stewart and knew he had found his home. It wasn't until after he moved to Houston in 2000 that he actively joined the Leather community. In 2002, he co-founded the Leather Tourists group and in 2003 he joined the National Leather Association-Houston chapter and shortly after became President where he brought the chapter out of a slump bringing the membership up to over 50 active members as well as presenting two nationally recognized conferences (including one that hosted the controversial Guy Baldwin speech "Birds of a Feather.") He is the current president of the National Leather Association-International and is completing his second and final term of office and is a proud member of Mama's Family as Mama's "Quick Fingers."
He has presented various workshops at Spring Iniquity and Beyond Vanilla as well as for private groups ranging from rope bondage, Egyptian Style Mummification, Gay Leather vs Straight Leather, Generational Issues in Ms/Ds relationships, Generational Issues in leadership roles, and Playing with People with Disabilities. While primarily a rope top, his passions include electro play, Egyptian style mummification, flogging, whips, wax, humiliation, and race play.
