Sinical Magazine: Do you remember the first fetish magazine or erotic book you came across? Do you have any favorites?
Domina Daria: I can remember the first nude magazine I saw and of course I was quite young and it was quite shocking. But I don’t have favorites and like a very wide variety of erotic material. My interests go through phases and reflect obsessions or moods I become enamored of in any given season.
Sinical Magazine: Clothing wise, what are your fetishes and why?
Domina Daria: I love leather. It’s my first love. The smell, the fit and the feel. It lasts forever and never goes out of style. I’m also a lingerie addict. I’m very comfortable in the full range of luxury lingerie. I love the way latex feels, but some of the drawbacks are prohibitive and annoying. Nonetheless it’s so breathtakingly beautiful I make whatever sacrifices must be made to get to experience that beauty. I also love having latex polished while I am wearing it and have a huge fetish for the sensory aspect of that activity.
Sinical Magazine: What are your measurements?
Domina Daria: 44-31-38.
Sinical Magazine: When did you first realize you were dominant?
Domina Daria: There was no grand epiphany. I’ve been the way I am my entire life. As I get older I have been able to conceptualize what seems to be a somewhat unique personality. Gaining a vocabulary for the difference has been very liberating.
Sinical Magazine: How did you get started in a career in professional domination?
Domina Daria: I answered an ad Mistress Montana had placed in the observer and gained a very valuable mentor. She am I are still friends and business partners. We share a satellite location in Austin that we visit frequently as our home away from home.
Sinical Magazine: What are some of your specialties?
Domina Daria: I have a true passion for corporeal and cross dressing. I go through different phases concerning training methods. But I am always seduced by a sweet and submissive crossdresser or masochist. They are definitely my favorites. I have a wide variety of interests though and my passions are ignited by different phases I go through at any given time.
Sinical Magazine: Do you have any favorite BDSM devices or toys?
Domina Daria: I certainly have two favorite implements for impact play. They were both gifts. One is a very small paddle made of English Oak to look like a cricket bat. My Welch friend made it for Me years ago and it’s still like new. It looks mild but it really packs a punch. The second is a single tail made of black and red leather. It was made by Victor Talla and its exquisite, for anyone looking for this implement known as the Scorpion it’s a short single tail that is both expertly woven and weighted. You can feel the quality when you swing it and it has a little leather snake tongue at the end that makes a delightful snap.
Sinical Magazine: What can a client expect from you in his first visit?
Domina Daria: True passion.
Sinical Magazine: Is S&M a form of psychotherapy?
Domina Daria: No. But I have know some therapists who use replacement therapy and the role play works wonders. Since I am not a counselor I cannot make a comment about this legally. But under the advice and direction of other professionals I have seen clients use it for their betterment.
Sinical Magazine: Besides fetish modeling and Professional Domination, what do you like to do for fun?
Domina Daria: Travel. Write. Camping and outdoors activities. Live music performances. I ride horses and motorcycles when I can. I would love to learn to fly small planes.
Sinical Magazine: What type of music do you listen to?
Domina Daria: Mostly electronic and trance these days. But I love classical also. I have time for classic rock sometimes. And I have an interest in world music also.
Sinical Magazine: What are some of your favorite books and who are some of your favorite authors?
Domina Daria: I love To The Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf. I have recently spent a lot of time buying books, starting them and then stacking them around the house unfinished. Smile. I have a huge library and I still love books that I can touch and turn the page. But I have a massive kindle collection too. It’s always hard to pick favorites when you like a lot of different genres. I love Shroud of the Gnome by James Tate. And The Wasteland by T.S. Elliot.
Sinical Magazine: Do you have any upcoming projects or events you will be appearing at you would like to mention?
Domina Daria: Goddess Ashlee and I will be revamping the subspacemagazine.com website for pros to advertise on and we are developing workshop retreats we plan to teach in California. |
