The Femdom Diaries

This astonishing collection of a dominatrix’s adventures will bury you deep inside the mysterious, exotic and thrilling world of power exchange.

Years in the making, Mistress Darcy has finally taken the time to distill some of her exhilarating and, at times, shocking experiences as a Mistress and express them with unprecedented grace, sophistication and clarity. The Femdom Diaries will entice your mental, emotional and physical arousal and help you to understand your own hidden kink like never before.

mistress_darcy-the_femdom_diaries-smAlthough most of her client experiences span traditional kinks like corporal punishment, humiliation, and bondage, some of her most exciting memories involve personal slaves and the unique bonds that are created from that dynamic.

“The nervous system needs to enter a state ofrest from time-to-time, and giving up control under the guidance of a gorgeous, powerful woman can be the perfect antidote to the demands of [a stressful life]”  Mistress Darcy from The History and the Arts of the Dominatrix by Anne O. Nomis.

A personal slave must cultivate this lack of control, along with a profound trust in his or her dominant, in order to go through with risque activities like full wet games, slavery, cuckold marriage, brainwashing, and enforced-bi gangbangs, all of which are explored in Mistress Darcy’s new book. While shocking to individuals not familiar with the world of BDSM, it is her wickedness, ingenuity, and flair for the extreme that make The Femdom Diaries essential erotica for 2017.

Meet Mistress Darcy

Mistress Darcy is one of the most well-respected D/s (Dominance and submission) practitioners in the professional domination industry today. Infamous for her intense and deeply psychological approach to BDSM, Mistress Darcy has built a reputation worldwide as an intelligent, compassionate, but uncompromising dominant.

“Professional domination is, for me, about helping people. Helping them find themselves, express themselves, release shame, and embrace joy,” said Mistress Darcy in an interview with London’s Telegraph. The article goes on to praise her as someone “who has built an empire around domination, and refuses to be shamed for it.”

A formally trained, internationally acclaimed dominatrix and alpha female, Mistress Darcy is both a professional and lifestyle kink practitioner. She first began as a dominant at The Dungeons of Mistress Elizabeth’s in New York nine years ago, and has since built a career as an independent that has taken her around the globe. Currently based in New York, Mistress Darcy at one time lived in London, but now travels back and forth between the U.S. and Europe.

As an educator, Mistress Darcy has taught adult and BDSM-themed salons for the luxury lingerie brand Coco de Mer, was recently interviewed for Vogue Magazine, and featured in an abduction fantasy documentary on Vice. In addition to offering workshops and performances at DomCon and London Fetish Weekend.

As an author, she writes both fiction and nonfiction, and keeps a BDSM-themed blog at her website www.mistressdarcy.com.

Smotherly Love – The Femdom Art of Namio Harukawa

Namio-HarukawaThe Femdom Art of Namio Harukawa

There are very few femdom artists in the world and even fewer whose work is instantly recognisable. The illustrious Sardax would certainly be one, the other would be Namio Harukawa whose name is less well-known, however, femdom enthusiasts will instantly recognise his work.

Namio Harukawa was an artist born in Osaka, Japan in 1947. His drawings exclusively depict generously proportioned dominant women sitting on, possibly sexually using or smothering the faces of weak, small, submissive men. The men are often bound or trapped in some kind of contraption while the women’s Rubenesque figures totally overwhelm and envelope them. He was most certainly a master at depicting erotic female bottoms and is much admired by the world’s bottom loving and face-sitting fraternities.

His most common motif is where the men are somehow, and always rather humorously, turned into human furniture for the comfort and service of these curvaceous goddesses. In his pictures the men are literally ‘objectified’, we don’t even see their faces (unless it’s their grimaces) as they are usually disappearing beneath a powerful women’s bottom. Thus the men exist as nothing more than useful household additions – inoffensive, faceless and ignored little men.

Harukawa’s voluptuous woman have huge breasts but even larger bottoms and super strapping gigantic thighs. This shape is then more ‘pear’ than ‘hourglass’ and the effect creates a powerful looking, strong, hyper-sexy women. (Certainly at odds with today’s sexualised image of a top-heavy, stick thin woman  – how does she stand up?)

And, in his world, women’s superiority to men is a given, his dominant women are self-assured and contented, usually sporting a looks of haughty disdain or a slightly sadistic smile while astride the faces of these hapless males.

So pull up a face and take a look 🙂   Here’s a little example of his work…

Femdom Summer Garden Party Pt2 – Sunshine, Service & Suffering

Sunshine, Service & Suffering
The Mansion Summer Garden Party Pt2

blog-femdom-garden-party-01Yes there’s more…we love a party at The English Mansion and with all the hot weather last year we thought we’d throw a Summer Garden Party. So here is the second installment of our wicked exploits from the later part of the afternoon…

blog-femdom-garden-party-08

After the endless rounds of human-pony racing our slaves were nicely sweaty, exhausted and lying helplessly broken on the ground – such a lovely sight 🙂 The real suffering, however, was just about to begin for one unlucky slave…the loser… as he was to be tied to a post and bull-whipped simultaneously by all four of us!

blog-femdom-whipping-garden-party-0107In attendance were the beautiful Mistress Lola, Mistress Evilyne & Miss Annalieza each flaunting impressive single-tail whips, that could be heard loudly cracking away over the moans of their victim, “OUCH!”

blog-femdom-garden-party-04

The ‘2nd place loser’ was also dished out a few lashes and as he was a pathetic wimp, he begged and grovelled at our boots to be spared.

blog-femdom-whipping-garden-party-0103After a cigarette break with a useful ashtray slave, we decided to split up. Mistress Annalieza & Mistress Lola decided to have some cruel entertainment taking two slaves down to the milking shed. One was strapped up in tight bondage while the other was enticed into a little ‘messy’ enforced bi 🙂blog-femdom-whipping-garden-party-0105

Mistress Evilyne and myself took another slave into the side paddock and made him stretch his arse-hole up with some huge toys while we gave him some needed ‘encouragement’.
blog-femdom-whipping-garden-party-0106

Femdom parties are always SUCH fun with lashings of… well… lashings!  The dynamic is totally different from the intensity of a 1 on 1 session; parties have their own potency with an exciting layer of exhibitionism and humiliation. And, I have always found a gathering of dommes far more sadistic when together, I don’t know if its latent competition or just a kind of group blood lust 😉

And you can watch all the action as it unfolded, right now inside The Mansion in non-stop footage of the whole afternoon as it unfolded in The Mansion’s Summer Garden Party.

DDI Domination Directory International – A Glorious Revolution

DDI-Magazine-Domination-Directory-International


DDI Magazine – A Brief History

Domination Directory International was an American contact magazine that described itself as “The Ultimate Source For Meeting A Mistress”. It was first issued in 1984 at the cost of $7 and then published sporadically until about 1989 when this became biannually. Domination-Directory-International-prodom-advert-Mistress-Sidonia-von-BorkInitially, it was a basic magazine with only a few colour pages and snapshots of prodoms. In a short time it became a much more glamourous affair – all colour, the page count expanded and the number of dominas wanting to advertise was growing every issue and these professional dommes now ranged from the whole of North America and Europe.

Right: One of my ads inside an early Euro DDI. You could have a 1/4 , 1/2 or full-page advert but mainly each featured domme took a page.

With its success growing and the need for more distribution in Europe, in 1995 to address the number of Mistresses from England, Holland, Germany wanting to be included; the USA publishers joined forces with the publisher of Massad magazine in Holland to create an exclusively European edition. So DDI split in two: a North American edition, which carried on with the sequential issue numbering from; and Euro DDI, which began fresh with a premiere issue.

DDI-Magazine-Early-Issues-Domination-Directory

DDI’s North American edition went quarterly with issue #29 in 1998. While Euro DDI was published three times per year, with issue #14, in 2000. However, with the advent of the internet and the decline of the printed magazine industry (pervy & mainstream) in 2003 the North American and Euro editions were once again merged into one combined edition. This now allowed domina’s to advertise worldwide and created a bumper world edition of over 200 pages. In the mid ’90s the DDI publishers managed a huge coup – distribution in more mainstream and prestigious retail locations such as Tower Records, Borders Books, and other non-adult venues; this was a boost to both the magazine’s sales and prestige.

And A Thank You

The prodom community owes a considerable debt to DDI as it sought out and brought together ardent, elite dominas from all over the world turning them into an exclusive group of dedicated professionals. Looking back at the advent of what we would call today a ‘prodom’ throughout the late ’70s and ’80s she existed in a secret and underground world. The only way to find her was through free adult listing papers, box cards and contact magazines. These small A5 contact magazines were cheaply produced and associated with a sordid, seedy scene and could only be purchased by mail order or at sex shops. DDI seemed to obliterate them – its large A4 format, its glossy cover, stunning models in designer fetish wear, inside colour pages, beautiful binding, all giving the contents inside: the services of prodoms, an authority and glamourous status – and importantly a new credibility.

DDI-Magazine-most-recent-issue-79The final DDI – Issue #79 Published early in 2015

An Ending
DDI was last published in early 2015 and its future seems uncertain. The ever omnipresent search engine ‘Google’ allows anyone to search the world for prodoms. And, dominas are no longer dependent on a page in a contact magazine or listing websites, they don’t need to answer endless question by phone as they can put up extensive websites showing any prospective subbie what to expect and the diverse range of services many of them now offer. I still think that the prestige of appearing in DDI was worth its weight in gold and hope that it might make a come back, even in a new web-based form or format.

Who Was the World’s First Dominatrix?

So who was the world’s first Prodom – Professional Dominatrix? Who I shall define here as a woman who had perfected her art, had her own chamber with specialist equipment and a generous clientele. Well the word ‘dominatrix’ was not used in its modern sense until the 1960s where it was 1st coined in erotic pulp fiction and B-movies which brought about its more mainstream use. However, if we put that aside the first documented, established domme, then called a ‘female flagellant’ was the infamous Theresa Berkley… but before we meet her, let’s first set the scene for how the role of today’s dominatrix came into being.

Le Vice Anglais – The Flagellation Brothels of Victorian London

flagellation-brothels-victorian-london-330The Victorian era (1830 – 1901) was one of strict and rigid morals, refined sensibilities and repressed sexuality. It was also a period obsessed with erotic corporal punishment evident from the flagellant pornography, erotic literature and  documented accounts from the period. So it’s no surprise that a flourishing network of prostitutes offering flagellation to their clients existed, (prostitution was, interestingly, legal). According to Prof. Van Yelyr in The Whip & The Rod (1941), it seems that female flagellants “supported 20 splendid establishments’ in London and was known as ‘the English vice’ ”.

The ‘English’ in The English Mansion, the name of this website, is actually a wordplay on this notorious expression and not, in fact, declaring that all our dommes are English, we welcome and showcase dominatrixes from all round the world 🙂

Having surveyed the number of whipping whorehouses in London, the Berlin psychiatrist Iwan Bloch (under the pseudonym Dr. Eugen Dühren) in 1909 concluded that, “England today is the classic land of sexual flagellation”. (His studies on sexuality went on to influence Sigmund Freud.)

victorian-crueltyThis interest in algolagnia (deriving sexual pleasure and stimulation from physical pain) appears to be the result, in part at least, of experiences of flogging at public school. Ronald Pearsall in Night’s Black Angels – The Forms and Faces of Victorian Cruelty (1975) writes, “The outcome of the public school predilection for flogging, was that in later life … there were considerable numbers of young men anxious and often desperate to recapture the lost sensations, and for them the flagellation brothels thrived.”

The highly respected 19th century British poet Algernon Charles Swinburne (1837 -1909) was well-known to be totally obsessed by corporal punishment as a result of his experience at Eton College, a public school (public schools were actually independent private institutions) and a number of his poems make reference to flagellation including this verse,

S W I S H I N G
swishing sounds just so
the birch’s kissing
blessing bottoms
so they glow
brightly blushing
even bleeding
from the mighty bushy blows

It is known that in the late 1860s he was a regular visitor to a flagellant brothel, believed to be Verbena Lodge at 7 Circus Road in St John’s Wood and whose proprietress was Mrs Doris Addams. So the stage seemed set in Victorian London for the begins of the fledgling world of the Prodom.

In his book, Index of Forbidden Books which was penned in the 1880s, Henry Spencer Ashbee describes how at the beginning of the 19th century,

“… very sumptuously fitted-up establishments, exclusively devoted to the administration of the birch, were not uncommon in London; and women of the town served, as it were, an apprenticeship in order to acquire the art of gracefully and effectively administering the rod. It would be easy to form a very lengthy list of these female flagellants, but I shall restrict myself to mention a few only. Mrs Collett was a noted whipper, and George IV is known to have visited her; she had an establishment in Tavistock Court, Covent Garden…”

So given the King, allegedly was visiting a female flagellant we can see how widespread and acceptable, well in a typically hypocritically, secretively way, it  had become to visit a female flagellant who were also called ‘Governesses’.

Theresa Berkley – The First Lady Of ProDomination
The most famous of these female flagellants (and one of the earliest, she pre-dates the Victorian period) was Theresa Berkley, born circa 1750. She ran a high-class flagellation brothel, the ‘White House’ at 28 Charlotte Street (now Hallam Street) Marylebone, London from around 1787 until 1836. She was described as an expert with all implements of torture and her talents became highly sought after by the aristocracy of the day.

forbidden-books-indexAll the following quotes are further extracts from the ‘Flagellation’ entry in Ashbee’s Index of Forbidden Books, which I think place Miss Berkley as most certainly, the First Lady of professional domination.

“Her instruments of torture were more numerous than those of any other governess. Her supply of birch was extensive, and kept in water, so that it was always green and pliant: she had shafts with a dozen whip thongs on each of them; a dozen different sizes of cat-o’-nine-tails, some with needle points worked into them; various kinds of thin bending canes; leather straps like coach traces; battledoors, made of thick sole-leather, with inch nails run through to docket, and currycomb tough hides rendered callous by many years flagellation. Holly brushes, furze brushes; a prickly evergreen, called butcher’s bush; and during the summer, a glass and China vases, filled with a constant supply of green nettles, with which she often restored the dead to life.”

“Thus, at her shop, whoever went with plenty of money, could be birched, whipped, fustigated, scourged, needle-pricked, half-hung, holly-brushed, furze-brushed, butcher-brushed, stinging-nettled, curry-combed, phlebotomized, and tortured till he had a belly full.”

“Mrs Berkley has also in her second floor, a hook and pulley attached to the ceiling, by which she could draw a man up by his hands. This operation is also represented in her memoirs.”

The Berkley Horse
In 1828 she began using a custom-built flagellation frame which she referred to as a ‘chevalet’ although it subsequently became known as The Berkley Horse.

berkley-horse-350“A notorious machine was invented for Mrs Berkley to flog gentlemen upon, in the spring of 1828. It is capable of being opened to a considerable extent, so as to bring the body to any angle that might be desirable. There is a print in Mrs Berkley’s memoirs, representing a man upon it quite naked. A woman is sitting in a chair exactly under it, with her bosom, belly, and bush exposed, she is manualizing his embolon, [wanking his hard cock] whilst Mrs Berkley is birching his posteriors.

In one surviving letter, a customer hearing about the Berkley Horse proffered Theresa Berkley this pricing for her services, “a pound sterling for the first blood drawn, two pounds sterling if the blood runs down to my heels, three pounds sterling if my heels are bathed in blood, four pounds sterling if the blood reaches the floor, and five pounds sterling if you succeed in making me lose consciousness.”

After her death in 1836, her memoirs, which had long been announced for publication, were held back by the executor of her will, Dr. Vance. And, sadly like so much erotica and sexual material from the period was destroyed. It was rumoured to contained compromising letters from certain members of the establishment. The Society of Arts at the Adelphi (now the Royal Society of Arts) took possession of the Horse in 1837, with a public exhibition promoted by radical publisher George Cannon. An illustration of the apparatus is reproduced in the original 1880s edition of Index of Forbidden Books, however, it is unclear what happened to the device.

She left her considerable estate to her brother who had been a missionary in Australia for over 30 years. When he learned the source from which the money had been derived, however, he renounced all claim and eventually the whole estate, valued at £100,000 (about 11 million pounds in today’s money) was handed over to the crown.
