WHEN YOUR PARENT CALLS YOU A WHORE

Personal notes from Domme Danielle, Denver’s Intuitive Dominatrix

When my transgender mother tells me that she would have a lot more respect for me and my work as a BDSM/fetish specialist if I labeled it for “what it really is” – which to her is no more then prostitution, and it is completely invaluable because “it is not 40 hour a week job…” I tell her that her dumbing down my 10 years in the industry as a professional dominatrix to being no more than prostitution – which I have nothing against – would be like me telling her that she’s a man in a dress.

I also remind her that it was the open-mindedness that I derived from my job that encourage her to come out of the closet after 50 years of playing dress-up on the weekends and at hotels. The next thing I do is put her Christmas presents which are already wrapped in a nice package – since I won’t be seeing her in person – and sign it from hers truly, the proud “prostitute,” BDSM specialist, entrepreneur, creative force, honest “bitch” and assertive woman. Some people actually value those characteristics, and my work.
