Alan Alda once said, “Your assumptions are your windows to the world. Scrub them off every once in a while or the light won’t come in.”
With that in mind, I have one question: what do you imagine when you think of a dominatrix?
I don’t know about you, but I don’t immediately think of a former elementary school teacher who got her PhD in education from Berkeley and writes a popular blog around spiritual and personal growth. After all, those aren’t the kind of details we’ve been told around people who pursue sex work.
But that’s exactly what I discovered when I met, Colette Pervette, a professional dominatrix who has dedicated her life to dispelling assumptions around sexuality, identity, and the human condition.
In this episode of Touchpoint, she walks me through what would be my first consultation as a new client, she challenges many of my assumptions around things like getting kinky, sex work, and fantasies, and ultimately draws a profound parallel between buddhism and her work with BDSM.
