The Dominatrix in the Theatre of Fantasy
by Mistress Margaret
Unlike a stage actress portraying a character with prescribed lines, a
dominatrix is an actress with authority to be creative. I write the play,
based on the client's ideas. I choose appropriate words and actions and
interact with my audience of one.
It is my work to bring the action alive,
incorporating erotic key- words, theatrical movements and pace. I may construct
a whole new act in the middle of a session in response to some insight. While
few playwrights would appreciate such a liberty, my actions in a session are
both pro-active and responsive.
Other responsibilities in a session are
safety, scene shifting, mood-creation and re-entry back to everyday life.
In a session my actions and language are congruent with my usual standards of
behaviour. As a stage actress I could be called upon to say the most foul and
demeaning lines. As a dominatrix however I will not shout or use abusive
Dungeons: my view
As a dominatrix I fit into the sub-group of mummy-figure / aunty / strict
disciplinarian. Aunty type sessions favour a domestic setting and rely on
emotional and mental control as opposed to shackles. These sessions include
visits to the headmistress's study, sex education by aunty and humiliating
examinations by matron. These are intimate role-plays involving little
Although being a mummy figure is my primary role, I do have some clients who
like the dungeon activities and atmosphere.
A dungeon setting removes the client from domestic reality. He may feel more
vulnerable to the control of the mistress in an atmosphere of darkened mystery.
Dungeon equipment, such as a wheel, rack or suspension equipment supplements
the power of the dominatrix.
I enjoy the play and reaction of men in both situations and having both types
of facillities essential to my style of working.
I prefer the term domination/submission to BDSM. Under this rubric sessions
can either be painful or painfree.
