How did You get into professional domination?

 

It was after I had been a bottoming for a local shibari wiz. While I found some of the pressure points to be pleasing, I also found myself bored by not being in control. He mentioned that I would make a good top, and that planted the seed in my mind. A couple weeks later I was showing an acquaintance of mine a painting I had done of a woman seated on top of a mound of numerous naked men. After he looked at the painting he asked me if I had ever considered being a Dominatrix, because he knew one who was looking for an apprentice. It was too serendipitous to pass up. I dug right in. It quickly became clear I was a natural sadist. I continued my mentoring until I was released into the professional world.

 

What attracted You to the profession?

 

It’s in the shadows of society yet I can tell most people. When pedestrians meet me in vanilla life, they get the impression of a charming, cool as a cucumber, albeit adorable, young woman. When I tell them what I do, they are always taken aback, followed by intense curiosity.This is a profession that allows me to express a side of myself that I enjoy keeping separate. What is forbidden, is fun. I love seeing high profile men shake when they walk through the door. I love how their mouths are always a bit dry from nerves.The arousal that comes from fear is fantastic. Also, I just love watching men in a state pleasurable pain. It gives me a certain warm zingy feeling like nothing else and it allows me to exercise my innate creativity. 

 

What cities have You worked in?

 

Portland, but I have a short term goal to become mobile soon and plan on making travel a regular part of my schedule.  

 

Where are You located now?

 

Portland, Oregon

 

How are You different now than You were when You started?

 

I’m not too terribly different, but I can say I am more evolved in many ways. As a business woman, and in my personal day to day activities I am more thorough and confident. I’m in a near constant state of ruminationmover the sexual and non-sexual power dynamics between people, and what it is that ultimately leads subs to contact me. 

 

What types of sessions do You specialize in?

 

CBT/Creative torture, Sissification (“girl” time), and humiliation through acts (as opposed to verbal).

 

Domina BastHow are You different from other professional dominatrix?

It goes without saying every Domme is different, but I am a bit younger than the average Domme. There is an advantage to being older in this profession and I love that, but I’ve jumped in a bit early. That is mostly because I am confident in my abilities and I had a great mentor. The other noticeable trait that often sets me apart is that I’m not always willing to sacrifice my femininity to fit into the classic leather clad, Hellraiser-chic S&M mold we’re all accustom to. Sometimes I am, but on my terms. It obviously holds it’s place (and do not get me wrong, I love Hellraiser and I love leather), but truly I revel in the thought of ball busting while wearing my favorite sun dress, then heading over to a cafe or cocktail bar still humming from the session, surrounded by patrons who are none the wiser as to what I’ve just done. If I want to trample you in a schoolgirl skirt, there will be no arguing. In short, I enjoy blending my girl next door charm with my sadistic side. 

 

How would You describe a typical session?

 

I wouldn’t, it’s a secret. But you can catch glimpses from my website under the tab Happy Boys

 

What is Your style? Are Your sessions more strict, or more fun?

 

It really depends on the dynamic that evolves between myself and the sub. But I’d say mine err on the side of fun, often therapeutic. Getting into this I accepted that some sessions would be light and playful, while some would be heavy and more serious. I enjoy the entire spectrum and I’m prepared either way.  

 

What is Your opinion of the business today?

 

I’ve been watching this underworld of BDSM/FemDomme slowly integrate itself into normal society, or more specifically youth culture, for a few years now. Once a taboo topic becomes normalized within youth culture, it’s in the first phase of becoming an accepted part of the wider population. I noticed it really started to pop up in the online fashion industry. I’d like to see the numbers on how many pink faux leather “Daddy” chokers were sold in 2016. It may not seem like true BDSM but it’s easy to see where this is all going in the next 25 years. I think the Professional Dominatrix industry will definitely feel the effects of this shift. 

 

If You had advice for someone just getting into professional domination, what would You tell them?

 

Never do anything out of your comfort zone, and be wary that fetishists aren’t always submissives.

 

What advice would You have for a submissive who is trying to get in touch with You to set up a session?

 

Follow the directions on my Contact page. Don’t be afraid to give me too much information in your introduction email. It’s much more annoying if I have to probe you for information. In fact, I probably wont try at all. Do your part. 

 

Do You accept personal slaves?

 

Not at this time. 

 

Do You attend fetish balls, conventions or events?

 

As much as I can, yes, and only if they sound interesting. 

 

Do You offer videos, photo sets, online chatting, etc. in addition to in-person sessions?

 

I do offer skype sessions. I would be open to discussion in regards to other forms of communication. 

 

What is something that almost no one knows about You?

 

I do a set of naked planks every night before bed.

 

What are Your plans for the future?

 

To Dominate subs all around the world, continue my education in and out of school, obtain a Chinese wedding bed, and explore my gifts so I can ultimately help better the lives of others.

Interviews

Interview with Mistress Olivia Vexx

 Hooper-Salutation-112

 

1.How did You get into professional domination?

After years of social play in my teens and twenties as well as being in kinky relationships I chose to offer my skills professionally. Knowing a lot of people (primarily men) who would not be able to or would not want to bring kink into their personal relationship made me realize there was a void to be filled.


2.What attracted You to the profession?

Being a kinkster myself I was attracted of course by the nature of the “work”. But there is a creative and psychological element to each session; an opportunity to intuit where that person needs to go. Knowing I brought them there is very satisfying.

 

3.What cities have You worked in?

I have lived, played and worked in NYC, Atlanta, Raleigh, Charlotte, NYC again, New Orleans and now Boise. I do enjoy the portable nature of being a Pro Domme and exploring life in new places. But once I am settled in a city that is where my play space stays.

 

4.Where are You located now?

Boise, Id.

Hooper-Govern-112

 

5.Would You consider yourself a lifestyle dominatrix?

Yes. In my personal relationships I have been fortunate to have partners both comfortable with and into my dominant nature and seeing it as a good fit for them.

 

6.How long have You been a professional dominatrix?

I have worked professionally as a Domme for over 20 years.

 

7.How are You different now than You were when You started?

Not too different at all. I have of course developed in terms of skills but am still the same high school girl who cajoled her boyfriend into a date consisting of bondage, tickle torture and forced foot worship 🙂

 

8.What types of sessions do You specialize in?

I would say my specialties are discipline, medical scenes (with an emphasis on enema play), scat and water sport play and tickle torture. While I do enjoy all my listed interests these are among my very favorites.

 

9.How are You different from other professional dominatrix?

I would say we are all different from each other; unique in our own ways; offering essentially the same things yet coloured differently by our individual personalities and appearance.

Hooper-Ratchet-103

 

10.How would You describe a typical session?

No session is ever typical. Different people can approach the same fetish or kink from a very different perspective. I do like to chat a bit in person before the session begins (unless it has been negotiated that we begin when I open the door…) and I always offer time afterwards to “come down” and then freshen up before leaving.

 

11.What is Your style? Are Your sessions more strict, or more fun?

I like to approach my sessions from the psychological aspect first – what is your kink and how do I manipulate that and take you places you may have never dreamed of going. From there my style can range from fun and sensual to extremely harsh depending on the scene. Some scenes such as tickle torture are inherently fun yet sadistic in nature and can even be sensual but not what I would consider a “harsh” scene. To sum up I enjoy variety and would not want to limit myself to any one type of style. I switch comfortably from one to the other sometimes even within the same session.

 

12.What is Your opinion of the business today?

I think kink has gone more mainstream and that it is a good thing. It gets people talking; gets them interested in trying new things and affords women who have an interest to carve a niche for themselves.

 

13.If You had advice for someone just getting into professional domination, what would You tell them?

If you are kinky yourself play socially first if you have not already. In any event, educate yourself; there are many great books out there that can help with both the physical skills as well as understanding the mindset. Get on Fetlife; it is socially oriented but a great source of support and knowledge. Get to know yourself and what you enjoy. Don’t do sessions you do not enjoy. Ultimately that will show. Understand that while you are the Domme and in charge you are also in charge of providing the best possible session for your client. Every client is different and should be treated as such. Lastly don’t get hung up on being a “name” or getting the most attention. It is fun to be a leader and be in the scene. But just as with great musicians, writers and visual artists there are great Dommes you have never heard of in every city that have a devoted following.

 

14.What advice would You have for a submissive who is trying to get in touch with You to set up a session?

Read my site; thoroughly. Then call me or send me an email.

Hooper-FreakAlley-113

 

15.Do You accept personal slaves?

I have always kept a cleaning slave; generally a service oriented sissy or submissive male longing to serve. In this respect I am a harsh and very particular Mistress with high expectations. At this time I do not but should I have an opening for this I would post on my site/blog.

 

16.Do You attend fetish balls, conventions or events?

I attended more social functions when I was in my 20’s and 30’s. Now I tend to be more of a “homebody” and prefer to concentrate on my business and clients although I still attend the occasional function.

 

17.Do You offer videos, photo sets, online chatting, etc. in addition to in-person sessions?

I do not offer items, photos or videos for sale. Distance training is available; information is on my site.

 

18.What is something that almost no one knows about You?

That I play the upright bass in a band and adore and basically work for my rescue dogs 🙂

 

19.What are Your plans for the future?

To keep working at what I love; offering a safe place to explore BDSM and fetish play.

 

20.Anything You’d like to add?

Embrace your kinky side. Many of my clients have waited decades to explore. Whether you see someone socially or professionally take the plunge and give it a try.

Mistress Daria’s Obsession with Leather and Latex

Dallas Dominatrix Mistress Daria Shares Some News About Recent Events and A New Gallery on Her Site!

 Couture-Hooper-9619

I have so many BDSM stories at this point in My life, I really believe I should become a writer!

I have long had an obsession with leather, but lately latex has been invading My life. I say that fondly. I really attribute this to finding the perfect fit and texture with Syren latex. I had tried on much latex before, but never found the experience pleasant. After meeting Athena Fatale and beginning to work with Her on a regular basis  and because of Her affiliation with JTs Stockroom, I decided to try out Syren Latex. I’m very pleased. I continue to add to My collection regularly and highly recommend their work.

Recently I visited Germany, to work in Berlin at one of the most awesome Pro-dungeons I have ever seen called Studio Avalon. There I was fully impressed with their rubber room and decided I need a vacuum latex bed and cube! I was enthralled with their lifestyle accommodations called The Rezidenze in close proximity to the pro-dungeon studios. Along with collegues  of mine here in Texas, I plan to start an invitational event where we visit this wonderland with Dominas from the states! If you are interested you may contact Me via My email address. All inquiries welcome (Dominas & slaves)

I am strongly certain I will attend the German Fetish ball in the spring. Adding to My collection and fueling the fire of this growing fetish inside, I am looking for rubber ponies and equestrian gear also. Perhaps you share this passion, or you are curious? Come let us take this journey together!

These photos were taken by Dirk Hooper, one of My new favorite Fetish photographers! Truly an awesome experience and I will shoot with him again. Dirk hosts a podcast called The Fetish Show (TheFetishShow.com) that Goddess Ashlee and Myself will interview within a short time. Please tune in so that you can hear all the updates and discussion of all the exciting events and parties we are planning both here in Dallas and abroad! Dirk’s website is www.DirkHooper.com.
