Doctor Bubbles and KitKat Ann met at Beyond Vanilla in 2018, and found a kindred spirit in each other. Since then, they have gone from playmates to best friends and eventually established an M/s dynamic and romantic partnership together. Their dynamic is based on mutual respect, trust, self-improvement, and dedication to increasing their knowledge and helping improve the world around them.
In 2021, they were named the Texas Power Exchange titleholders and went on to be named the 2022 International Power Exchange titleholders. As titleholders, they view it as their duty to help promote positive and healthy power exchange dynamics.
