I am the dom. The DOM!



Hello everyone. Ridiculously late post, am very sorry, as always. I've been Mrs Busy, and haven't been in England much. And I'm rubbish.

But I've been experiencing some interesting things at work this month! I've been in Spain with the BDM, shooting for www.restrainedelegance.com with my friend Sammie B and Elle Tyler. And very fun it jolly well was. I try to direct 50% of the stuff we shoot on location trips because it's too much for one person, really (even when he is a DOM). So I made up a couple of stories, and off we went. Whee! Being a director at the same time as trying to act is not ideal, because it's very uncomfortable to criticise someone else's performance when there's no one there to do the same to you. But it certainly was interesting...

We started off with a harem themed story. Because the dom tends to drive the action somewhat, and the story would obviously be most familiar to me (because I'd, like, WRITTEN it) I reluctantly decided to cast myself as the 'head girl' of the harem, who bullies everyone else. Ouch, this meant I was going to miss out on getting tied up, which was a sacrifice, but it did mean I got the fanciest costume in compensation... Elle and Sammie played run-away harem girls who get re-captured and blackmailed by EVIL ARIEL into being her slaves while the Sultan's away. And did I abuse my power? Oh yes I did.

A few hands-free pedicures, cruel punishments and gratuitous insults later, Sammie and Elle turned the tables on me (the relief! I have no words to describe it!) and tied me up so they could escape again. Whereupon the BDM over-rode my original ending, and decided that Evil Ariel should be whipped. Hello? Why? Does this happen to real proper doms? Errrr, no, it doesn't. I, however, got tied to a St Andrews Cross and flogged. Hmmm, I don't think it did my status as director much good...

After taking a break from any kind of authority while we shot the BDM's Indiana Jones themed story, our third day of shooting found us trying to shoot a Roman Epic. With 4 people. This was my idea again, I'm afraid. I'd been very taken by the film 'Spartacus' when I saw it as a teenager, especially the beginning, with poor Spartacus staked out to die in the sun. So in what I'm going to call 'a sensitive re-creation of the original', Elle got the same treatment. Whereupon she was rescued by two seriously kinky Roman ladies, who, instead of training her as a gladiator or anything boring like that, invited her to join their bondage-orgy...

I did NOT enjoy giving up the best part (from a Damsel in Distress point of view) to Elle. Oh no I did not. But I really was trying to be professional... I got into my stride a bit with domming (I think I'm quite good at being a nasty, bitchy, bullying type, but RUBBISH at being a sensual or genuinely authoritative type....). Hooray for real doms. That's all I can say.
