Financial Domination.wm.square

The only thing that cools me off is cold hard cash.

I’m delighted to have been asked to be a speaker at the 2016 New York City Porn Film Festival. The Festival dates are June 4-5 in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and there should be a broad assortment of fascinating pieces playing. The festival was quite controversial when it debuted last year, and although pornography itself is a very divisive subject, the festival will no doubt raise local (if not national) awareness about sex positivity and sexual expression.

I’ll be speaking about financial domination. Although not the focus of my D/s practice, it’s something I have experience in and which I’ve been interviewed for in the past for The New York Observer and other mainstream publications. I think financial domination is fascinating, and I’m excited to bring the subject of kink to a mainstream event like this.

One of the things I’ll be discussing is the crux of how and why giving money to a woman can be erotic, and why financial domination goes beyond transactionalism. There are many sides of financial domination, just as there are myriad aspects to the eroticism of most BDSM activities, and it’s one of those kinks that is so easy to write off as “extreme” without actually going deeper and understanding the dynamics of giving money and losing money.

Anyone interested in attending the New York City Port Festival can acquire tickets here.  If you’re interested in financial domination, please contact me appropriately here to start a conversation.

If you didn’t catch it already, the New York Observer did a front page story on Wednesday about financial domination. I thought the article was intelligent, respectful, and had a lot of very insightful angles to the discussion, especially for a mainstream, vanilla publication. I’m not crazy about the cover, but I suppose they had to at least make an attempt to sell papers. The photos inside though, well…I have to say that mystery woman is quite alluring!
