It’s Mixtrix’ World by Miss Kate

It’s Her World, She Just Lets You Live in It

A Profile on MixTrix by Miss Kate

I don’t idolize Dommes because I’m afraid that I’m going to unconsciously (or consciously) rip off their style. This isn’t to say that I don’t admire or enjoy other Dommes work. I would be lying if I said I didn’t. There are a handful of Dommes that I admire greatly and who inspire me to explore things I may not have previously thought of. MixTrix is probably number one on my list of Dommes that inspire me. She so graciously allowed me to ask her a few questions on her world as a cruel with a sense of humor lifestyle and pro Domme.

A Lesbian Domme Who Dominates Men – Guest Post by Goddess Cassidy

 

 

How Can a Lesbian Dominate a Man?

Guest Post by Goddess Cassidy

Of all the ways I surprise strange men on the Internet, being a lesbian Domme is the one thing that shocks them the most. Although I am not an extreme rarity, I have noticed that lesbians who dominate men are a minority. Yes, it is unconventional. But it is completely and totally worth it.

Let us get something out of the way right now . . . Dominating men does not get me sexually aroused. That should not come as a surprise, but I have encountered many men online who were downright appalled that I would be a Domme for a living and not enjoy it sexually. I have even been called fake for it. Here is the thing though: There are tons of Dommes who are attracted to men and do not get turned on by their sessions. Why? Well, because it is their job, and it is not necessary for us to get turned on to succeed at what we do.

I always tell skeptics that, if anything, it is a strength. Never chancing the distraction of attraction makes it easy to keep a level head and concentrate on my job. Of course, that in no way means I think I am better than Dommes who are attracted to men. But I also do not think I am a lesser Domme because of my sexual orientation.

For some subs, it makes it even more exciting knowing that they would never in a million years be able to have me. Whatever little fantasies they come up with in their heads have absolutely zero chance of becoming a reality. It can sometimes be an extra fun way to torment them. However, for other subs who attempt to contact me, it can make them irrationally angry.

 

"For some subs, it makes it even more exciting knowing that they would never in a million years be able to have me."

 

For instance, I once did a Kik session with a man and before we began, I asked what his limits were and I told him mine. Then in the middle of the session, he starts making me quite uncomfortable. He asks me if he can touch himself, and I tell him not yet. Nothing out of the ordinary there. Just being a Domme and exercising my right to tease and torment. Then he starts saying rather inappropriate things to me. He tells me that if he was with me, he would fuck me. I immediately shut him down and told him exactly what I thought of his nasty comments. He apologized, and I decided that if he could behave himself, the session could continue. He agreed, and then starts getting angry that I have not let him touch himself. Before I can tell him to go to hell, my timer goes off and the session is over. He is extremely angry and tells me that I am awful at my job. I tell him that if he would have behaved himself, he would have had more time to enjoy the session.

Now, this situation would not have been okay in any case, even with a straight Domme. However, I firmly believe that having the knowledge of my orientation made him attempt to push things further than he should have. There are always men who think they can get away with things and love trying to push lesbian Dommes to do things they are not comfortable with. I have even had strange subs on the internet threaten to track me down and force themselves on me to turn me straight. Quite an unsettling DM to receive.

Being a lesbian Domme who dominates men is an interesting ride. We are a small group, often accused of being fake, threatened, etc. But we are also incredibly strong women who know that, for some subs, we are adding to the excitement, therefore making our careers thrive beyond our wildest dreams.

My name is Goddess Cassidy! I'm a sassy, smart, and sexy 21-year-old American girl. I've been a dominant lady my whole life, but I've been a professional online Domme for a couple years now. In addition to domination, I've been selling panties and other fetish items since I was 18. My career as a clip producer began at that time as well. I'm great at what I do, and I have such a fun time doing it!

Top Dropping – Dommes Can Drop Too by Miss Kate

Yes, a Domme is a Real Human, with Real Human Emotions

By Feature Writer Miss Kate

I am sure anyone reading this is well aware of the term “sub dropping”. For those of you who are new, it is the state that can happen after a sub leaves subspace. During subspace, the body releases all type of feel good hormones and chemicals, often giving them a “high” feeling. It can last anywhere from hours to days. And they usually do not want to leave the wonderful blissful state they are in.

However, what goes up, must come down

As the sub’s endorphins drop, there can be a mixed bag of things going on from physical to emotional. A drop can happen even after just one session. They may get the blues, they may feel aches and pains, tiredness, and the list goes on. The way the endorphins leave the body so rapidly can be likened to a hangover or an opiate withdrawal. Sometimes, it can even lead into a depression. This is why aftercare is so very important. There are different degrees of drop, but I will save that for another time.

The Top Drop

What is often lesser known or talked about however, is Top dropping. Yes, Tops can drop. I will be honest, in my whole six-year career as a Pro-Domme, I had never even heard of Top drop. That is, until I dropped myself. I had no clue what the hell was going on. All I knew was that, out of nowhere, I got deeply upset. I started to rant and rave to a few close friends that I was a terrible Domme and that I was quitting altogether. I was truly baffled by my feelings. Until someone in my group privately messaged me and told me what was up! She said “Look, you’re fine. You’re just dropping.”. Of course, my natural reaction was, “What? No, I am not. Tops don’t drop”. She then gently explained to me how and why Tops can drop.

Well of course Tops can drop. Sometimes, it is easy to forget that we are, in fact, mere humans. Whether you are a lifestyle, pro, or both, sometimes it is easy for your ego to get inflated, especially when you are constantly being put on a pedestal. When you are constantly the one in the driver’s seat, calling all the shots, it is easy to go on a power trip. It itself can give you a high. A lifestyle Domme can feel it a bit more roughly because play sessions are going to have a huge element of intimacy to it. But even a Domme who is strictly pro can have an intense session where emotions run high, endorphins a-flowing adrenaline a-pumping. Afterwards, something just seems . . . amiss. I have heard Dommes describe it as feeling “weird” before.

Symptoms of  Top dropping?

Essentially, they are the same as a sub drop. Both Tops and subs experience euphoria during a session, and both can experience sadness, anxiety, and worry afterwards. But there is one glaring difference: Top drops often include feelings of guilt. Perhaps there are feelings of crossing a line, or that you may have been to rough, possibly you were a little bit too intense.

What Can a Top Do?

So, if aftercare is important in easing a sub out of subspace gently and hopefully minimizing the chance of a drop, what can a Top do to prevent or while dropping? I am not too sure if there are many preventive measures, per se, since you never know how a scene will play out. But while your dropping you must primarily recognize it for what it is; a drop. Take part in activities that engage you; read a book; watch a comedy; occupy yourself with your hobby; take general “me” time. This, too, shall pass. Do not think of giving in or up. Do not change your practise of doing things if it is what works for you. And if you are feeling super intense or depressed, communicate with your sub (if possible). Despite them being your submissive, they do realize you are human and have human emotions.

And lastly, just like you would make sure your sub was well hydrated and has had a healthy meal, make sure you do that yourself.

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.
