HOW DID YOU BECOME INTERESTED IN FETISH/BDSM?
I can’t say that there was a defining moment when I got into fetish. It had always been around, I heard about, read about, listed to music about it, watched movies with fetish in it. Somehow, as I evolved as a person and a woman, I became more aware of myself as a person with certain needs and desires. That’s how fetish/BDSM came into my life, as an extension of that.
AND HOW DID YOU TRANSITION FROM AN INTEREST TO IT BEING A PROFESSION?
This I remember clearly. One day I was hanging out with my best friend Inga Larsson, also a domme). She told me how she wanted to become a professional domme. I was like “no way!!”, thinking that you were expected to have sex with your clients (like in some European countries). That one fact would defeat the whole purpose of being “the superior one” and that’s why I had never considered it before she explained it to me how it really worked. I was excited to be able to make my interests into a profession. After that I got more training from the world famous Isabella Sinclaire and Mistress Simone Justice. I learned a lot from them!
WHAT CAN SOMEONE SEEING YOU AS A PRO DOMME FOR THE FIRST TIME EXPECT?
Hmmm? They should expect the unexpected within their interests.
WHAT KINDS OF PEOPLE BOOK SESSIONS WITH YOU?
All kinds: men, women, from different age groups, from all levels of society. But I guess the majority would be very successful professionals who are in charge 24/7. When they come to see me, they are looking to be taken to another place where they can completely let go of control and let somebody else be in charge, without being judged. The “not being judged” factor is very important”, since most likely they had been judged at some point by somebody. When they come to me, they feel safe on one hand, but then not so safe on the other…
WHAT ARE YOUR SPECIALTIES?
Corporal, domestic, humiliation, role play, slave training, bondage, fetishes, foot worship, Goddess worship, teasing and tormenting, smoking, cross-dressing, electricity, flogging, play piercing…
DO YOU ENJOY FETISHISM/BDSM PLAY IN YOUR PERSONAL LIFE, AND IF SO WHAT ARE YOU INTO?
All of things that I do professionally. I wouldn’t do it if I didn’t enjoy it myself.
DO YOU THINK FETISH IS BECOMING PART OF THE MAINSTREAM CULTURE?
A lot of people looking from the outside in think that S’n’M is some weird and scary scene. I would just tell them that BDSM is fun, safe, and consensual. They should go for it and have fun! Plus it’s always fun to have a little “dangerous” secret! :)
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
I think it is. It’s hard for me to answer this question because I am in the scene and can’t observe it objectively. It all depends on who you ask. When I tell people what I do, they are either completely shocked or they love it and want to hear more about it.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
From classical to Heavy Metal (you know, we Eastern Europeans love our metal!! J). But lately I’ve been listening“Arcade fire”, “The National”, “Archive”, “Cooper Temple Clause”, “Interpol”, “Devotchka”, “Radiohead”…
