dv:  It’s a pleasure talking to you; I love your work.  Tell us where you're located and if your Pro-Domme career has always been at this location.

MX:  Thank you for the compliment! Back in summer of 2001, I started training as a Pro-Domme in Chicago. I worked at a commercial dungeon for a year where I refined all of my skills and talents. I worked at various commercial dungeons in Chicago from 2001-2004. In 2004, I decided to go independent working only for myself. Even then, I already knew that the commercial dungeon scene was not for me.   

dv:  I know you travel as well. Tell us about some of your upcoming travel dates and your plans for the rest of 2017.

MX:  I was just in Milwaukee (July 22-23) and will be in New York City later this month (from July 28-31). For the remainder of 2017, I plan on traveling to the following locations: Minneapolis, Boston, Phoenix, Seattle and Portland.

Mistress Xenadv:  How did you get interested in Domination?  Does your Dominant nature go back to childhood?

MX:  Yes. My Father was always the Dominant one. I was told by my parents that both of my Grandmothers were very strict with their children. I suppose it runs in the family. As a child, I would boss my sister and cousin around, always getting my way. I recall that the boys on my street became intimidated by me. I guess you can say that I was a little brat. Fast-forward to my teen years. When I was around 16 years old, I learned about S&M in my High School Psychology class. I had no idea such a world existed. I did my own research on the BDSM lifestyle via the internet. I was intrigued and instantly turned on by the stories I read and the images I viewed. What can I say? I had a great desire to pursue this lifestyle.

dv:  Were there any early mentors who helped you develop your style?

MX:  I had two mentors in early 2001 whom I met at a party. They were a married Dominant couple. I expressed my interest in learning about the wonderful world of BDSM. Luckily, they took me under their wing, and showed me the ropes, so to speak. 

dv:  Are there any other Ladies you work with in the business?

MX:  I am available for Double sessions with Mistress Alexandra, Mistress Simone, Mistress Clawdia and Mistress Mara. I am always willing to collaborate with other Mistresses across the world who share a mutual level of respect and talent for what it is we do.

dv:  Do you have a clip store or membership site?

MX:  Yes, I do. My site is called Bizarre Cinema. The store was established 10 years ago.

dv:  Tell us about one of your most memorable sessions. Do you recall your very first one?

Mistress XenaMX:  I remember the very first commercial dungeon I worked at. I assisted different Mistresses with their sessions. Whether it was a nurse/patient scene or a forced feminization scene, I was there to learn, to be trained, and to meet different clients in the process. I admit, I was nervous. I thought, "What am I getting myself into?" However, I overcame that apprehension very quickly by letting my inner 'bossy bitch' attitude out. These men came to us for a reason; to let go, to lose themselves, to let us have total control. That was the biggest turn-on, and to this day, it still is.

dv:  What do your favorite scenes involve?  Would you say you're well known for a specific fetish?

MX:  I have many favorites: whether it's placing a slave in restrictive bondage, to spanking him as he's bent over my lap, or feminizing a slave. I love playing the 'naughty nurse.' I love to be worshiped like the Goddess I am. I am particularly fond of draping my entire body in latex outfits. My sessions are either on the sensual or the sadistic side, depending on what my slave desires and what mood I am in.

dv:  Tell us about your session location and describe some of your favorite implements or equipment.

MX:  I conduct my sessions out of a private dungeon that I share with Mistress Simone. The space is fully equipped with various bondage furniture including: St. Andrew's Crosses, Bondage Tables, Spanking Benches, Whipping Posts, Cages, etc. My favorite implements include my collection of bull-whips, floggers, Et-312B power unit for electrical play, and my latex vac-bed for immobilizing slaves.

dv:  What do you think people assume about Pro-Dommes, or more specifically you, that is just not true?

MX:  The assumptions people have about Pro-Dommes are that they hate men (not true), that we always dress in fetish attire (not true), that we are Dominant 24/7 (this might be true with some people, but not me). Some people assume that Pro-Dommes are just like Escorts (definitely not true) and that we are in this business only to make money (not true).

dv: Where can people find you online?

MX:  My official website, Twitter, Instagram and My Facebook fan page.

dv:  How do you balance everything in your busy life and what do you like to do for fun?  Do you have any hobbies?

MX:  I balance everything by setting aside private time for my friends, my family, and myself outside of the dungeon atmosphere. My hobbies include working out, exploring new cities, going out for nice dinners, writing, attending concerts, dancing the night away, modeling, producing videos, and relaxing at the spa or at home.

dv:  What are some of your future goals?

MX:  My goals are to continue to travel. I would love to purchase a second home in a warm climate (so I can avoid the brutal Chicago winters). I want to focus more on my writings, so I can publish a book that I have been working on for a few years. Finally, I wish to continue enhancing my knowledge as a Dominatrix.

dv:  Thank you so much for your time and I wish you continued success.

MX:  Thank you very much!
