My book is factual
What got you interested in writing about BDSM?
I am a Dominatrix, and have been for three years, so my book is based on real life accounts of my sessions. Initially I had no intention to write a book, but a man I met by chance (who is now my editor and business partner), said, when I told him what I did: “Adrianna, I bet you have some really interesting stories to tell about being a Dominatrix. I am sure people would love to read your real life account, as opposed to the fictional ones that are now so popular.” I thought about it for a week or so, then started writing. 6 months later, my book, The Story of Control is on sale on Amazon, both as a Kindle E-book, and as a paperback.
What research, if any, have you done into BDSM to make your stories realistic?
Being a Mistress, I can draw inspiration for my sessions. For example, if I have a client who has a very interesting persona, or is outlandish in their wishes, they make interesting characters to write about. Or if I try a new activity in my sessions, I can write about that too. I like to portray the realistic side of BDSM, as it is not all dungeons and PVC. My clients are real people who rely on my making their fantasy a reality, either for their sexual gratification, or just to lay to rest a nagging fantasy. What differences or difficulties, if any, do you see in writing D/S stories as opposed to your typical romance?
With my book, The Story of Control, I have successfully combined enough of the BDSM kinky element, but have also added other threads, an important one being romance. In my opinion, if written well, romance and BDSM can go together. Everyone, whether they admit it or not, has a kinky side. But often they may just not know how to let out and satisfy it.
Do you get any sexual gratification from being a Dominatrix? From reading your book, it’s obvious that your clients do. But do you?
Personally I don’t get sexual grafication from dominating a client, I enjoy having control over someone but see it more as a strict boss-employee situation.
What does your partner think about you being a Dominatrix, and seeing men without clothes on, and spanking their bare bottoms?
Most of my clients are a lot older than myself and certainly not what I would consider attractive. My partner has always been very supportive of me and is completely fine with me seeing clients, and on occassions has also watched a session on request by a client
Adrianne has been a mistress for three years. At the age of 23, disillusioned with the world of modelling, I entered the world of BDSM. Being a young Mistress wasn’t always easy, as I would often be scrutinised by older Mistresses, and older potential clients. Some said I was too young to understand corporal punishment, as could not understand how a person would feel being summoned up for the cane. I agreed to an extent, but I knew what fear felt like, growing up with an abusive father and walking on eggshells, never sure which character would be coming home at the end of the day was something I feared. I liked acting, and I enjoyed taking on characters and giving them my own twist, as the strict school mistress or head girl. I was certainly not your typical mistress; an older matron type, or a raven-haired PVC-clad beauty working from a dungeon, I was small, blonde, and busty, working from a domestic setting with a hockey bag of implements and the knowledge and skill to create a character and improvise a setting. But I was a hit.
