So tonight on CNN/Don Lemon there will be a small feature which includes images from my studio of domination, The State. I specifically asked them not to use my professional name and to keep the location very hush hush. Initially we discussed my going on camera or being a more direct part of the story but my concerns about being indiscreet got the better of me and I chose to be a background story instead. Still, those familiar with The State will recognize some things, I imagine!
The reporters who I met with were really lovely, curious, open minded and seemed to be headed in a direction that was less about the "ooh sex workers!" element and their angle was very interesting, at least when we spoke. I gave them backstory (without any names, just education and pointers) on the overall story and tried to give some broader depth to the context for those who seek FemDoms.
They really wanted to know which companies some clients worked for in the tech sector, on my end I didn't give any names, not even on background, and I never mentioned a company that had less than 250 employees. They respected my choice, I hope it's a good piece.
Here's the write up I just saw about it, so check it out! I'll be watching : )
Prostitutes using Square to accept mobile payments, sex workers who code and market to Silicon Valley clients with geeky t-shirts, and a high-tech dungeon in a nondescript office building near San Francisco - Erica Fink and I took an inside look at the growing sex industry in Silicon Valley. As money pours in, folks from one of the world's oldest professions are catering to the geek demographic and taking a couple notes when it comes to their entrepreneur clients. We'll have the full story on Don Lemon's 10pm show tonight with a sneak peak in the 7pm hour. Set your DVR!
