I am Mistress Martine Phoenix and I have been interested in the dynamics of power and control for as long as I can remember, even before I knew how to define those terms. It wasn't until 1996, when I viewed a documentary by Nick Broomfeld, that I realized there were spaces where my impulses could be safely explored.
I soon learned that my need to invade others personal space, elicit a reaction and cause pain, meant I was attracted to basic sadomasochism. With that knowledge, I began experimenting with corporal punishments, tortures and torments. In those early years, I was surrounded by extremely talented riggers and my love of restriction and bondage was quickly revealed as a more enveloping physical expression of my desire for control; it was another medium I truly adored. In these safe spaces, my various fetishes of interest (especially my love of all things foot related) kept expanding as, thanks to my fellow Dominas and clients, I was constantly exposed to more and more decadent and delicious things.
As my physical sadism developed, so did my adeptness at more psychological aspects of SM play. It became delightfully apparent that humiliation and degradation broke through the surface of physical sensation to become a truly invasive tool to have in my developing arsenal. More time passed. I found myself hungering for a more complete manifestation of all that I had experienced thus far. Through voracious reading and careful personal exploration, an affinity for Old Guard training and structure came into view. Within a classic household structure of clearly defined roles, there was the crystallization of all that I enjoy about training slaves, protocol, and structured D/s.
In short, I am fascinated with the power exchange inherent in D/s. My all-time favorite listing of enjoyable explorations include:
* corporal punishment
* breath play/control
* verbal and physical humiliation
In addition to My kinky outlets, I am a obsessive photographer and movie buff, lover of 1940s style nylon stockings and quirky Converse sneakers, caretaker of a diverse selection of orchids and succulents and all around curious individual.
