More About The Scarlett Letters by Jenny Nordbak
 
 
 
Overview

Jenny Nordbak takes us to a place that few have seen, but millions have fantasized about, revealing how she transformed herself from a USC grad lacking in confidence into an elite professional dominatrix who finds her own voice, power and compassion for others.

On an unorthodox quest to understand her hidden fantasies, Jenny led a double life for two years. By day she was a construction manager, but at night she became Mistress Scarlett. Working at LA s longest-running dungeon, she catered to the secret fetishes of clients ranging from accountants to movie stars. She simultaneously developed a career in the complex and male-dominated world of healthcare construction, while spending her nights as a sex worker, dominating men. Far from the standard-issue powerful men who pay to be helpless, Mistress Scarlett s clientele included men whose fantasies revealed more complex needs, from Tickle Ed to Doggie Dan, from the Treasure Trolls to Ta-Da Ted. The Scarlett Letters explores the spectacularly diverse array of human sexuality and the fascinating cast of characters that the author encountered along the way.

In this entertaining read, Nordbak sets the tone early: I was having a typical Monday. My foot worship client had been late. For more than a year, while working a day job as a construction manager, Nordbak spent her nights working at one of the most popular dungeons in Los Angeles, a similar idea to a brothel, except no sex happens there and it specifically caters to fetishes. But no sex really just means no penetration, and Nordbak details a wide range of sexual appetites being satisfied in an unassuming residential house where pleasure and fantasy were sacred. She deftly explains how she learned the difference between a submissive and a dominatrix as well as the complexities of the work itself: I had to be confessor, therapist, and temptress while in the space of a few minutes negotiating a business transaction... and reading the subtext of a clients fetishes. She also introduces the reader to a range of customers, such as Doggie Dan, an elderly man who liked to be led around on all fours while wearing a dog collar, and an unnamed Hollywood star who was into urethral sounds, metal rods originally used by doctors to open blocks in the urethra. Throughout, Nordbak is sympathetic in describing her clients as well as frank and funny about her own kinks. (Apr.)
