A la de Sade
As you read this, I am training women interested in becoming Dominatrixes. So let me stir your imagination with this surprising article in Vanity Fair.
I really enjoyed Toni Bentley’s visit with Catherine Robbe-Grillet, the French Grande Dame du Sadomasochism in February’s issue. Titled “The Thin End of the Whip,” this journalistic writing captures a different reality than most BDSMers practice. I am sure Mme Robbe-Grillet would not use the term BDSM. Read her story from erotic slavery to consummate non-professional Dominatrix.
I had the pleasure to meet her some fifteen years ago when she visited Fakir and me. She is now 83, does not speak English and owns a petit chateau! She’s the total Mistress to her submissive partner, Beverly. Take a look at their limitless agreement! Amazing I’d say. What do you think?
On the subject of published material, I got an email a couple of days ago from my dear friend, Michael Rosen, letting me know that “Sexual Portraits: Photographs of Radical Sexuality,” is now online at http://michaelrosen.com and it’s annotated! Click on the picture of Fakir and me with all those clothespins to read our interview!
Michael Rosen’s first book was the groundbreaking “Sexual Magic: The S/M Photographs.” Here are 3 of my photos from when I was a sweet wicked young Mistress and a dominant masochist!
Many thanks to Janis, Amy and all those intriguing new faces who came to Pure Pleasure in Santa Cruz last week for Playing with Strangers! I certainly look forward to seeing each other again!
And to Patrick Mulcahey at LDG for inviting me to present my woman’s point of view to a 90% gay male audience, many thanks! Woof. I’ll tell next Saturday…
In kink with heart,
