dominatrix, (aka: dominatrice)
a dominant woman in sexual roleplay or in BDSM fetish lifestyle. Most dominatrices are found in the kinky section of your weekly newspaper selling their services to boiler suited executive males who suffer guilt for their own corporate or social power. But these are usually not the real thing, Real dominatrices do it not so often for money but rather for the pleasure of control, some to point of abuse. The dominatrix is not merely an isolated niche freak as so many seem to believe within counterculture. She is a driving force in underground fashion because she, at her best, is a veritable and essential art criminal by virtue of defining her own world whether you choose to agree or ignore her. And while most dominatrices are flat boring to most of us, there are those who rise to a high art form where undeniable beauty cracks the whip that whips the asses.

The dominatrix as high art, is immensely essential to the fall of the imperial American empire but at the same time is now as quintessentially American as apple pie. She is in films, in fashion and everywhere, usually in benign imitation or fashion knockoffs. But the real dominatrix is an important element of the drama and theater that exists in every art criminal mind.
