It seems that Femdom is showing it's presence in mainstream life more and more everyday. Mistress and i have discussed may a time about the public' fascination with BDSM. i sometimes think that is what it is, but sometimes i think that the creative folks have run out of ideas that are titillating but passable enough to make it past censors so it can be on television or the theatre. But it definitely seems folks are very curious about the lifestyle and what makes people do it.
Most recently i stumbled upon a old high school friend's Facebook post about being fitted for a dominatrix outfit. Of course it caught my eye and then i remembered Her involvement in a local theatre and that She was to play a Dominatrix in the local production of "Communicating Doors". i also noticed a post by one of Her friends to a New Yorker magazine review of a new play on Broadway called "Venus in Fur".
"Venus in Fur" is a play based on the novel "Venus in Furs" by Leopold von Sacher-Masoch. Both the play and the novel are unfamiliar to me but have definitely piqued my interest. In brief exploration of the novel, it is evident this is true Femdom, as per the wikipedia post. i don't know if Mistress and i will get the chance to travel up to NYC to see it, but it does look thought provoking.
Again, this is another example of BDSM, Femdom, and D/s coming out of the shadows and into the light of mainstream life.
