Dominatrix: Gender, Eroticism, and Control in the Dungeon

Danielle J. Lindemann


Our lives are choked with small tensions, our closest relationships filled with fight: among girl and guy, artist and purchaser, purist and commercialist, expert and client—and among the dominant and the submissive.
 
In Dominatrix, Danielle Lindemann attracts on huge fieldwork and interviews with specialist dominatrices in ny urban and San Francisco to provide a refined portrait of those strange execs, their paintings, and their consumers. previous study on intercourse paintings has centred totally on prostitutes and so much reports of BDSM take in pro-domme/client relationships with no exploring what makes them special. Lindemann satisfies our interest approximately those paid encounters, shining a mild on essentially the most secretive and least understood of non-public relationships and unthreading a heretofore unexamined patch of our social tapestry. Upending the concept that those erotic employees have interaction in uncomplicated exchanges and revealing the healing and analytic nature in their paintings, Lindemann makes an incredible contribution to cultural experiences, anthropology, and queer experiences together with her research of ways gender, strength, sexuality, and hierarchy form all of our social experiences.
