I am a life-long learner; well-traveled, adept at 5 languages, but fluent in whit. When I studied at one of the top universities in the world, I was enamored by the spheres of influence of literature and art. My hunger for knowledge was insatiable. I would learn new languages solely for purpose of translating texts, so that I may devour the histories and stories buried within. But no greater subject has seduced me more than the art of kink. 

 

Kink has a long history, dating back to our most primal of inclinations. I believe in an informed approach to BDSM, drawing reference and reverence to these often hidden histories. A necessary companion to text is technique. I am regularly taking workshops and courses so that I may further advance and broaden the diversity of my kinky practice. Below are the books and courses that I have learned from thus far in my ongoing sadistic scholarly pursuits. I take the duty of care as your dominatrix very seriously. This commitment to a constant learning coincides with a much greater commitment to your safety, physical, and mental submissive state. I believe it is the right of any submissive to be informed of the knowledge and skill of their potential Mistress when entrusting the fragile yet precious nature of their submissive space.
