kindle Æ The History Arts of the Dominatrix Û Anne O. Nomis Ole of 'Whipstress' and 'School Mistress' The ladies providing birch discipline were interlinked with royalty nobility parliamentarians and secret societies By the 19th Century London held 20 sumptuously appointed discipline houses run by 'Governess' Dominatrices one of whom invented a special machine for whipping known as the Berkley Horse In the 20th Century the book presents rare vintage snapshots of mid 20th Century ladies of the 'bizarre underground' in time space and place from London New York The Hague and The Herbertstrasse Lastly Nomis examines the contemporary occupation of the modern day Dominatrix and contributes a theory of their 'Seven Realm Arts' characterizing their practices in a framework beyond the catch all term of BDSM This book is the seminal work on the subject of the Dominatrix her history and her arts as a uniue craft 'Painstakingly researchedThe uintessential treatise on dominant women throughout the agesimpressive work' David Jackson DDI Illustrated with artwork and 86 images Review The History Arts of the Dominatrix Five of Five stars This book does a first class job of telling us the story of the Dominatrix and stating on paper what many of us already know but have avoided openly acknowledging There are than ten pages of references in there particularly in the historical sectionsAt the end of the day the Dominatrix of the last few centuries has existed as a profession to satisfy the clientelle who wish the service It is a human demand that is probably baked in to our natural blueprint; as evidenced by the societies before the Abrahamic religions that ran on those same principles There is solid argument that these services also exist because of the un natural restrictions placed on us by our binary thinking societies; thus creating the un balanced psychological states from which we need release and hence the need to turn to extra services to redress that balance away from societies judgemental eyesThis work will probably be among the books that society as a whole considers when it justifies to itself the further removal of organised religion from our governanceThere is the uestion of the future of the Dominatrix however Society is taking the much stronger step of re defining beauty; one of the very weapons of carnal desire that the Dominatrix relies upon We may yet see the Dominatrix separate from the fetishistic and return to the core of emotional dominance Cultures are changing and the Dominatrix will have to change with them After all with corpral punishment now banned in schools how many years will remain before people stop seeking the schoolboy scenario; or once India abandons the caste system for exampleThe way I see it the core facets of submission and dominance are not uniue to the sexes It is merely that the patriarchal society has painted female submission and male dominance as normal and to be accepted; while the converse is to be rejected These traits however exist within us all and I forsee a future where dungeons contain Dominant and Dominatrix working side by side for the benefit of their clients of either sex who wish to exercise various facets of their natural personalitiesAt one point in chapter 4 one submissive was uoted as saying I would try my best to bury my desires to pretend they weren't there but it inevitably would pop up and I would feel guilty then I'd try and push it back down again But you can't you know? It's part of who you are a part of your identity and being So eventually I told my wife I was terrified and expected her to want to leave me I expected the worst and broke down and cried several times explaining it all to her how it started how it affected me And surprisingly she was actually really understanding She's not interesting in whipping me or wearing leather herself but she's ok with me seeing a Dominatrix professionally as long as it stays within those confines and I tell her when I'm going He was lucky I guess Not everyone who comes out to their partner manages to get such a response and works a way forward with their other half But I think understanding is generally improving as the years roll onAs chapter 5 recalls Dumas' words Marriage is a chain so heavy that it takes two people to carry it sometimes three Spouses freuently detect something not right in their partner and on the occasions that this imbalance is outed the spouse may not only auiesse to them attending a Dominatrix knowing that sex is not on the menu but sometimes conspire with the Dominatrix themselves to guide their own spouse's treatment at her hands There are many complexities to human relationships and this book does an excellent job of laying them as bare as possible within the confines of just short of three hundred pagesThis book is a cracking read which introduces the reader to things they very likely weren't taught in history class and exposes the other side of power control in a responsible researched and factual manner Be prepared to see the occasional picture that might upset you; not on the nudity part as I think the only thing I ever saw was breasts but in terms of the bondage and extreme power exchange that is depicted here and there But then a book like this should only ever be approached with an open mindTop read Thoroughly enjoyed it It should be reuired reading for anyone who is in a position of control concerning the censorship of our societyHere are the links to the chapter reviewsFirst and Fourth last word to the author herself in a small section of her afterwordHaving spent much of the last four years in the underworld of Dominatrices' dungeons and the dark and artificially lit interiors of museums and libraries I have finally drawn to the end of my journey documenting the history and arts of the DominatrixAfter all that I've learnt about their world and their practices the Dominatricies have lost nothing of their mystiue I have great admiration for these highly independent talented and free thinking ladies who have made domination their professional craft occupation

The History Arts of the DominatrixTHE HISTORY ARTS OF THE DOMINATRIX by Anne O Nomis This much anticipated book is the illustrated treatise on the Dominatrix throughout history Begun in 2009 it has taken four years to come to be published with artwork illustrated with permission of the highest museums and libraries in the world No book previously existed on the subject Nomis set to work meticulously researching the most discreet and mysterious occupation of the Dominatrix This book reveals the ancient roots of the Dominatrix lie within sacred rituals to a Goddess Inanna who ruled one of the most important cities of the ancient world the city of Uruk or Warka With a Masters degree in archaeology and art history Nomis has included exerts of a hymn to the Goddess with rites of gender transformation punishment pain and ecstasy linked to the high en priestess named Enheduanna and images of the Goddess Into the English history record the secular profession appears in books from the 17th Century with flagellation prints of the Dominatrix in r The subject of a Dominatrix is whispered in circles among silly titters or hushed lustful sighs When the word Dominatrix is mentioned an image of a fierce woman in a corset leather and high heels wielding a whip is most common The uestion is where did the dominatrix originate? Is this a relatively new phenomenon or have they been throughout history? Are there famous dominatrix throughout history? What are signs of a good dominatrix and how does one become a dominatrix? Anne O Nomis dives into the underground world of sexual deviance to find the elusive dominatrix She searches through archives and museums for references to ancient women of power In a beautifully leather bound book she shares her research in five easy chaptersThis book is lovingly created It's rare a dead tree book catches my attention This one is a collector's edition hardcover with heavy pages and colourful art The cover is tastefully gold embossed with discrete designs I can't remember the last time I owned a hardcover which came with its own ribbon bookmark The book feels good in my hands It's elegant and classy as is the photo of the author on the back of the book The preface starts off with the trials and tribulations in bringing this book into print It is an interesting read and makes me appreciate the book The first chapter covers ancient dominatrix as it relates to goddesses and priestess initiates Ms Nomis does a good job of condensing the information in forty odd pages With an unlimited budget and an ability to speak many language Ms Nomis could create several volumes on ancient dominatrix across multiple cultures Her focus is only on the ancient western world with the Middle East commonly referred to the Fertile Crescent area Her insights into the possible downfall of strong women archetypes make sense and popular theory among those in women studies fields It is no surprise the difficulty in finding details on women in the past especially in patriarchal societies Still even in the Eastern cultures there are some women both myth and real who stand out I'd like to suggest a few Chinese women in ancient China who ualify as a dominatrix Yang Guifei in Liangyu Princess Pingyang and Ng MuiThe second chapter moves into the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries in western Europe through strict governesses and flagellation houses This is a familiar area Based on my own personal experiences and research I would agree Ms Nomis is spot on with this chapter Whilst the focus is on men being dominated by these strict women I'd like to propose to expand this to female submissives This is another piece I found missing in the book It only really deals with femdom in a heterosexual manner There is little about Ff domination Still it's probably best Ms Nomis keeps the focus on Fm or the book would be rather lengthy The third and fourth chapters depict famous dominatrix in the past fifty odd years It's horrifying to learn in the USA people were convicted of private lewdness It is educational to learn about how the US Postal Service provided assistance into persecuting and harassing people Ms Nomis does a good job of showing how society changed in the past fifty years The last chapter depicts seven realms of the dominatrix art form Honestly this chapter fizzled the book out for me It didn't capture my attention perhaps because the categorizations didn't mean much to me For some it may help them understand better how a dominatrix interacts with a male submissive For those who are in the lifestyle this is the basics and can be skimmed through For those who are new to the BDSM lifestyle it may be beneficialThere is another item I learned which is noteworthy The training of dominatrix is interesting and a bit disappointing Ms Nomis highlights what she witnesses in Australia These professional houses are showcased in a way which portrays catty backstabbing women Not the best and unfortunately too accurate in many places even outside of the lifestyle Fortunately my message to budding dominatrixes not all places train in such poor ways From a business sense I can see many flaws in how the training is designed as shown in this book From a personal experience I've just completed a yearlong mentorship for dominants and I can attest there is training which includes benevolent dominants in a supportive environmentOverall this book is well put together focused and easy to read It's the first of its kind and I can only hope Ms Nomis will continue her research and write about Dominatrixes Recommended for kinksters interested in learning about the elusive female dominant provided by BDSM Book Reviews
