I checked out the first class of Master Gabriel’s Dominant Training Series at Sanctuary LAX on Wednesday. The start of a new 8-part training series, the first class was fairly high level and introductory. The turnout was great – there must have been about 60 people in attendance. In the words of Master Gabriel:
“We all have different roots that have brought us here. We as a community have an opportunity to define what it means to be dominant, and an opportunity to define the next three generations of kink. The future is watching us!”
On Thursday, a dominatrix was spotted in Birmingham, England walking her human dog through the streets on a leash. The now-famous-in-England domme is 21-year old financial dominatrix Paige.
According to the mirror article, the man puppy paid her £1,000 for the puppy training experience, which also involved having his hair shaved and an egg cracked over him (slightly random – I hope she doesn’t crack eggs over real puppies!). Sounds like a fun scene, despite the non-consensual inclusion of vanilla passer-bys, which I generally think should be kept to a minimum.
Despite her being outed to her family by a vanilla co-worker, I hope that Paige’s new-found fame will bring her lots of business for her other job!
Also last week in the UK, a man has reportedly died in a BDSM accident. The Manchester Daily News reported the incident, in which an unnamed man reportedly died wearing a “bondage suit”, following an online hookup. Further details are scarce, and UK newspapers are known for their sensationalism, so I’ll reserve further commentary until we know more.
Have a great week – may your Valentine’s Day be full of joy and kink!
