Anne O Nomis spent four years researching the Dominatrix to write the first ever book on the Dominatrix’s history and practices. Her framework ‘The Seven Realm Arts’ has become the training curriculum used in dungeons around the world, to teach trainee Mistresses.
She began with a one year internship in one of Australia’s most famous dungeons in 2009, under tutelage of some 15 Dominatrices, before travelling to Paris and onto London. There she researched the Dominatrix in dungeons and in the “forbidden books” of the British Library, prints and artworks in the storage vaults of the world’s top museums and archives.
Gaining a Masters degree in Archaeology from UCL (University College London), she traced the ancient roots of the Dominatrix and BDSM from ancient Goddess religion, to the female flagellant Governess of the 17th – 19th Century, to the bizarre ladies of the 20th Century underground. Travelling to Hanoi in Vietnam to write the book, she requested and was granted permissions from museums and galleries around the world to reproduce historic images of Dominatrices for the first time.
Her book ‘The History & Arts of the Dominatrix’ has become regarded as the Dominatrix’s bible, favourably reviewed in fetish magazines and by Dominatrices themselves.
Anne O Nomis teaches the Dominatrix Diploma Seven Realm Arts course in Melbourne, in Tuscany at ‘Villa Domme’, and is an invited speaker at Oz Kink Fest and other fetish events around the world.
This is the first time Nomis has given a Dominatrix talk in Sydney, and comes after receiving many requests to do so. It comes ahead of her teaching the Dominatrix Diploma in Sydney on the 4th-5th March 2018.
The fascinating talk comes with Powerpoint presentation of her research and of Dominatrices through the ages, and she will be answering questions at the end of the talk.
