Imagine being out for drinks with friends, posting a photo of yourself having a blast, and then suddenly money is pouring into your accounts. Financial domination, or findom, is a fetish based on the dominant/submissive dynamic, usually with little or no physical contact other than an exchange of cash. The submissive, or paypig, pays tributes to their mistress because it excites them and just for the satisfaction of her spending their money — and obviously because they have some extra cash lying around (I hope).
VICE’s Inside The Kink Of Financial Domination covers way more than findom as it follows Mistress Marley — founder of the Black Domme Sorority and Mistress Marley’s Sexcademy — with her friends and fellow dommes Goddess Rue and Goddess Bria to capture a day in the life of a Domme in NYC. Mistress Marley tells her story of learning the ways of a successful dominatrix, how little guidance she got as a Black woman in BDSM, and how she now teaches other Black and Afro-Latina dommes to start their own successful sex work businesses. These three Goddesses also have their own lingerie business, Pynk Matrixx, offering awesome lingerie for all body types and sizes.
Feel any kind of way you want about seeing a woman walking two men on leashes down NYC streets in order to fulfill their public humiliation kinks (and people in the comments really do), but I assure you, as someone who’s lived in NYC this is not the strangest or most disturbing thing I’ve seen on those streets. Clearly, most passersby are enjoying it, so hide your wife and kids if you’re upset about it. And definitely don’t watch this awesome documentary Inside The Kink Of Financial Domination.
