- 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.

How did You get into professional domination?
I had a friend who was a pro domme and she recommended I try going pro because I was between jobs. I started working as a Professional Dominatrix shortly after and I’ve never looked back.
What attracted You to the profession?
I’ve been attracted to domination for a very long but never had much exposure to it. I thought I was vanilla until I learned that what I was doing was definitely not vanilla.
Once I got a little exposure to the world of BDSM I felt like I had found my calling. It was just perfect for me.
What cities have You worked in?
I am based in New York City but I spend a lot of time in Los Angeles, followed by Dallas and Austin. I have also made stops in San Francisco, San Diego, D.C. and San Antonio.
I also have upcoming plans to make my debuts in Philadelphia and Chicago very soon.
I enjoy a lot of travel but NYC will always be my homebase.
Would you consider yourself a lifestyle dominatrix?
I would. I don’t date submissive men but I do play in my personal life and I do date men who can be a partner in dominating submissives for both of our enjoyment.
How long have you been a professional dominatrix?
I have been a Pro Domme for about a decade.
How are you different now than you were when you started?
I’ve learned sooooo much over the years. I have grown in huge ways as a person and a dominant. My skills have are exponentially more developed now and my style has changed.
I used to think the only way to be a strong dominant was to be the meanest person possible and hit the hardest all the time. Now I understand there are so many other ways to inflict pain that don’t have to include physical punishment.
What types of sessions do you specialize in?
I specialize behavior modification. As a dominant I believe it is my responsibility to better my submissives. I use a lot of military boot camp and disciplinarian style tactics.
How are you different from other professional dominatrix?
Every mistress is inherently different. I think that my personal brand of sensual and strict w/ a lack of empathy and a focus on improving you makes me different.
How would you describe a typical session?
There is no such thing as a typical session. Every session is a brand new experience because my session plan depends on my mood and current interests. The interaction then depends on our chemistry.
The way it is all received depends on the slave’s mood, emotional state and current interests. All of this affects how I conduct the session.
What is your style? Are your sessions more strict, or more fun?
I like to think my sessions are fun but I am always very strict. I require a high level of protocol from my submissives.
When they are on top of their training I am having fun and I will laugh and smile.
What is your opinion of the business today?
It’s evolving so much all the time. It’s becoming so mainstream and at the same time it is under attack so often that it’s almost hard to keep up with what we can talk about and what we need to hide.
It’s really a guessing game each day what the state of the business is. It’s had a lot of up and downs lately with Fifty Shades of Grey and the current political climate.
If you had advice for someone just getting into professional domination, what would you tell them?
This is not a way to make quick money. You need to work very hard to hone your skills and develop and maintain a positive brand image.
What advice would you have for a submissive who is trying to get in touch with you to set up a session?
Read my website carefully. Pay attention to my social media. All of your questions are answered if you take notice.
Also, use the contact form on my website. I list all the things required of you there. Just pay attention and follow the directions, they are right in front of you.
Do you accept personal slaves?
I do but very rarely. I am extremely picky. Having someone that involved in your day-to-day life is like dating.
I need to have to enjoy your presence and know that you are skilled enough for me not to need to micromanage you.
Do you attend fetish balls, conventions or events?
I don’t go out much in NYC to the parties but once in a while I’ll attend an event to support a friend.
I love attending DomCon, both LA and New Orleans. I have been a Guest of Honor in LA and a Mistress of Ceremonies at the inaugural New Orleans convention.
Do you offer videos, photo sets, online chatting, etc. in addition to in-person sessions?
I do. Links and info on how to get all of these and how to book online sessions can all be found on my website.
I offer phone and webcam sessions on NiteFlirt. I sell my clips on NiteFlirt, ManyVids, Clips4Sale, FascistFemDom.com and FetishMovies.
What is something that almost no one knows about you?
One of my favorite hobbies is to crochet.
What are your plans for the future?
I plan to keep dominating for as long as being a professional makes me happy.
I plan to expand myself as a producer and continue creating sexy, kinky porn until I am too senile to find the camera.
Anything you’d like to add?
If things doesn’t tell you enough about who I am as a person start following my social media accounts on twitter, instagram, snapchat and tumblr. @elenadeluca

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?
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).
How 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.
