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.

Over 1600 Kink Lovers Flock to DomCon LA 2017

Los Angeles, CA – DomCon Los Angeles, the world’s premier professional and lifestyle domination convention was a huge success this year with an attendance of over 1600 people. The crowd was filled with BDSM enthusiasts, the kink curious, and high profile adult stars Nina Hartley, Irene Boss and Jewel Marceau, just to name a few..

Walking about the convention floor were fetish models wearing latex catsuits, dresses and hoods. Dominatrixes were clad in custom leather and boots. Vendors offered novel and perverse sex toys, along with electrifying fetish fashions. In the crowd were cosplayers, human pets in a variety of animal costumes, and elegant cross dressers. Regularly appearing onstage were rope bondage suspensions, whip demonstrations, spanking and burlesque dances.

“This was Flirt4Free’s first time attending DomCon, and it was such an amazing and fulfilling experience,” said community outreach manager, Karly Kroft, Fetish Community Manager of Flirt4Free. “We were able to recruit some really great fetish broadcasters who we are very excited to have on our network.

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.

I have been in the BDSM lifestyle for 7 years. I am a animal activist, and political activist. I fight for animals rights everyday. I prefer being a vegetarian. I do have respect for our military, they do put their lives on the line everyday, but I will never have the respect for our president or government. I do take on submissives or slaves. I come with a open mind. I do not tolerate close minded people. I wont put up with ignorance! If you have a question ask it honestly and respectful. I love to push my slaves or submissives to the edge of pleasure and pain. I look for your soul through your eyes. I do not tolerate laziness. Live your life to your fullest, take chances in life. I ask only for your sincerity, your honesty. This lifestyle is about love, devotion, chances, domination submission, creativity, beauty. If you are interested in the lifestyle and want to be educated and experience we can discuss. Always enter everything with a open mind.

Approaching The Mistress by Mistress Didi

Approaching The Mistress
Used with Permission by Mistress Didi

Understand your needs.

Most people are thrilled by the idea of serving a Domnina will give them some kind of satisfaction on a psycho-emotional-physical level. They are excited by the “idea” of serving, but not completely aware of the time, energy, and how much control must be relinquished in order to serve properly. The fantasy element of serving a Mistress often blinds the submissive to the fact that his/her hands will get dirty while doing chores that s/he does not want to do, but is instructed to do. The goal is to do the will of the Mistress; your desires are of no importance unless the Mistress is concerned about and chooses to address them. For many, once the reality of all that entails proper service becomes clear, they do not actually wish to serve; they wish to be thrilled.

Training for proper service requires the Mistress’ time, energy and skills and She should be rewarded by your complete obedience and your tributes. Should you determine that the thrill was more important to you than proper service, you must be certain not to have wasted the Mistress’ time and energy and that should She release you, that you leave Her well compensated. It always annoys Me when cheap people do not even bring Me a bottle of wine as a tribute and dare to think that to clean My bathroom is actually something special that I should be grateful for from them. They fail to realize that My bathroom is already being regularly cleaned and has been for a long time before they even thought to approach Me to offer service. Because of their own selfishness and their actual desire to be thrilled, they either do not realize or care that their attitude and actions are insulting to the fact that I am a Professional Dominatrix, an artist in the Lifestyle and have devoted My time, energies and belief in being a true Goddess. Herein lies the yin-yang aspect of the Lifestyle: you are served by serving Me and the person that I have cultivated Myself to be gives you the pleasure of fulfillment in service to Me.So, you do not wish to insult a Mistress because you are the one who will lose — whether now or in the future. The Mistress will immediately have another person to serve Her. People who want to keep the Community a place of nurturing and fulfillment will not appreciate behavior that brands you as a loser and no one will want to waste their time with you. This is why you must have your thoughts clear and focused. Mistakes can be avoided with proper preparation.When you make the conscious choice to serve a Mistress, you must be clear on:

1. Why you want to serve; what do you believe you will receive from serving Her? What do you want from the Mistress as Her servant?
2. What service means to you: this includes what tasks you wish to offer before you even speak with a Mistress;
3. How far you are willing to go in your training. This should include what type of servitude you desire, e.g., 24-7, to become collared, etc. This should also include an honest look at your fetishes. The Mistress may be into public humiliation, but you may not believe this path is for you; and
4. What type of service you do not wish to offer. This is crucial because if you are engaged in an activity that does not offer you the opportunity for personal growth in service, you won’t be happy and the Mistress will not be pleased.

I suggest writing your answers so that you can review and revise them for deeper self-understanding. The last thing you want to do is to misrepresent yourself to the Mistress and displease her because you cannot live up to what you offered. On a personal level, to misrepresent yourself to yourself is a sure path to unhappiness, failure and despair.


Educate yourself

Part of the joy of this journey of self-discovery is the opportunity to enhance your knowledge and awareness. Before presenting yourself for service, know who and what you are in this moment. There are numerous BDSM sites which offer excellent educational tools and resources, such as BDSMU, and info on Master Steelow’s site. The Community is full of wonderful people who will freely answer your questions and assist you on your path. By knowing what you are talking about when you present yourself to the Mistress, you will show your respect for Her experience and show that you are worthy of the time She gives to consider you.

Warning: Perhaps this is my personal peeve, but I do not find most of the videotapes that are readily available to be more than just (bad) fetish-type fantasy filmed for profitability. Before you purchase or rent a tape to learn about the Scene, do the research on reviews, author/producers, etc. to see if there is anything of value to you in even bothering to investigating the product.


Make A Good Impression with your Inquiry

First impressions are lasting. Nothing annoys Me more than a poorly presented inquiry and I usually dismiss the petitioner. Some rules to follow:

1. Greet the Mistress with respect and honor Her with your words. A simple example is, “Greetings, Mistress, may I present myself to You for service?” NEVER just start with your requests of what you want from Her.
2. In either the first or second paragraph, tell the Mistress why you are worthy of Her consideration for service, e.g., your past experience, what your talents are, etc. Use this opportunity to show your sincerity in desiring to serve Her.
3. In either the first or second paragraph, tell the Mistress why you wish to serve Her specifically. Careful not to go overboard with the flattery. When someone praises My beauty too much, he appears to lack creativity. I am also not interested in how my physical attributes inspire you to want to serve Me. The honor of serving Me should be your inspiration.
4. Choose words that “offer” rather than words that demand, e.g., “As your humble servant, i would be honored to shop for your groceries,” as opposed to saying “i want to” or “i will do your food shopping.” Remember, when presenting yourself for service, your goal is to please and serve the Mistress and attend to Her desires.
5. Offer personal information including your physical description, job, where you live, whether you have a car, etc. It is also an excellent idea to let the Mistress know when you are available for an interview — “i work Monday through Friday from 9:30 to 5:30 and am available at any time on weekends for an interview at Your convenience.”
6. Make certain that your request is personalized to the Mistress. If I should receive something that looks like a form letter, I dismiss the petitioner.
7. Make certain that your request is neat, correct spellings, use paragraphs and punctuation. This is another way that you will show the Mistress that you are taking the time to present yourself properly and that you are capable of proper service.
8. Pay close attention to what the Mistress requests of applicants. I only allow people who take the time to care about themselves into my personal arena and I instruct applicants to be creative and offer Me some insight to their personalities. See My slave Application.
9. Give all of your contact information including phone number(s) with times to reach you. ALWAYS give your cell phone number. Include this information in the body of your request as well as at the end beneath your signature.
10. Take your time. I can always tell when someone has rushed and thrown together an application. I will not take you seriously in your desire to serve Me because you are showing that you will rush your duties. I have no patience for half-way anything. I want what I want done correctly and when I want it. So, if you do not make a good presentation, you will not be responded to.
11. If you send an actual physical application, be certain to use nice paper and either neatly type or print your text. If you send an email, DO NOT USE STATIONERY ATTACHMENTS. HTML text is OK, but since you do not know when or where the Mistress may read your email, keep it simple and easy to download. NEVER SEND AN ATTACHMENT.
12. It is a good idea to provide the Mistress with at least one photograph of you. Again, NEVER SEND AN ATTACHMENT. Take advantage of free online photo album services — http://photos.yahoo.com – sign up, upload photos and you will be given a link to cut and paste into emails that will take people you invite to your photos.


Generate Interest in you

It is important to give the Mistress a reason to want to give you an interview. Do not rely on your income, what services you request to offer, or anything material to interest Her. Good D/s relationships happen with chemistry. If you believe that you truly want to serve this Mistress, there is obviously something about her that inspires you. Therefore, you must give Her something to feel that you would be a good match in service to Her. Let your personality come through in your application for service so that it will not feel like work for the Mistress to consider you.

I state on my initial webpage that I dislike lackluster slaves and being bored. I also state that I like intellectual stimulation and amusement. Good ideas to interest Me are to offer a short poem that speaks to you, state your favorite books/movies, tell Me a joke. Don’t just blurt out the obvious. Think about what I must always hear from applicants and give Me something better.


Follow Up

After presenting your application, and unless otherwise instructed, the smart things to do are:

1. Call and alert the Mistress that you have complied with Her request and sent your application for service. This is taking care that your application is not mistaken for junk mail.
2. Be patient. If after 3-4 days you have not received a reply, it is permitted to call and/or email the Mistress to let Her know that (i) you are making sure that She received your application and that you will happily send it to Her again, if she desires; and (ii) you will patiently await Her response.
3. How you handle yourself during the consideration period is of the utmost importance. Many times I will not respond to an application for days just to see how the petitioner behaves. Polite and considerate behavior ALWAYS gets My first consideration and shows Me that you have good social skills. I do not allow people to make demands upon Me in any way.
4. If you are not accepted for service, DO NOT BEHAVE RUDELY. Thank the Mistress for Her consideration in a follow-up email or letter. Smart people know that good things happen to good sports. There have been many times where I have referred applicants to other Dominants to whom they would be better at serving than they could have served Me.

Tale of 3 applicants

subA and subB provided applications to Me that were creative, showed their intelligence, interesting and gave Me reason to decide to interview both of them. I did not respond to either application for 7 days. subA sent a polite, follow-up email to ensure that I had received his application, to which I responded and told him that he would be contacted. subA was very smart; he thanked Me for responding to him and told Me that he would “anxiously-with-patience” await contact from Me.

subB, on the other hand, is an idiot. 2 days after he’d sent his application, he called and left a message complaining that he hadn’t heard anything from Me, that he didn’t feel he was being treated fairly, that he’d spent the time to give Me what I wanted and I was not giving him what he wanted. First, subB merely followed instructions for what he must do to apply to serve Me. Since he had not even had an interview, he did not know what I wanted and he clearly did not educate himself to the fact that My consideration for his desires must be earned. I ignored him because I had made my decision that he, like all of the other applicants, would be responded to in 7 days. Within the next 5 days until I responded, subB called twice a day to complain. I wrote him a 2 sentence email which stated, “Due to your extremely poor behavior, I choose not to have you serve Me. Good luck with your search for a Dominant.” If his behavior had not already been bad enough, he called and emailed to demand that I reconsider him to serve Me, that I would certainly miss out on not having him serve Me, and that he would do whatever it took to get Me to reconsider him. subB is not ready for the Lifestyle, completely unworthy of any attention from Me, insolent, and was trying to top from the bottom — which I absolutely despise. I told him that he would have to pay for My time to interview him, fully expecting him to disappear because subB’s behavior clearly indicates that he is cheap on every level, a quality that I equally abhor. I am satisfied that he has not contacted Me since.

subC presented a wonderful application, had a good phone conversation with my assistant, scheduled an appointment for an interview, and the day before the interview, called my assistant to “negotiate” the tribute required — a mere bottle of wine. subC argued with my assistant that he was not interested in a professional session and that he did not think he should have to purchase or bring anything to the interview! I allowed subC to hear Me instruct My assistant to hang up the phone and have no further contact with him. However, he thought he would barrage Me with emails and phone calls. This upset My assistant terribly, who requested to reply to him and explain how he ruined his opportunity to be referred to a Dominant who may be better suited for him. I gave her permission to respond ONLY because this made her feel better.

Because of childish, self-centered, spoiled behavior, subB and subC not only ruined their chances to enjoy service to Me, they also ruined their opportunities to be referred to a Dominant situation that could have been just what they were looking for.

The moral of this tale is to always, always have respect and be gracious. You never know what the future holds — or doesn’t.


Conclusion

It should now be clear that if you truly desire to serve a Goddess, that you must exhibit divine grace yourself. Otherwise, how can you dare to think yourself worthy of consideration? Again, I am a benevolent despot and believe that education is the key to success and that knowledge is for sharing. Now you have the tools to approach a Dominant properly. I wish you well and you are welcome for this Gift.*
