So You Want to be a Professional Dominatrix?


Presented by Mistress Montana

So You Think You Want to be a Professional Dominatrix?

Do you have a bitchy and pushy personality? Do all of your friends say you should be a Dominatrix? What does a professional dominatrix really act like? Do you need to yell and scream to be a dominatrix? What are submissives expecting out of a professional dominatrix? Is being a Dominatrix just an acting job? What are the legalities of being a professional dominatrix? Even if you are currently in the business it is always best to get your legal information from an expert instead of Twitter. If these are some of the questions you ask yourself and you have wondered how do I get started? This class will attempt to answer all of these very questions for you.

Becoming a dominatrix is an exploration in self. Who are you, what do you want to be, and how do you want others to see you? These are the life questions that all of us are constantly asking ourselves. It is a daily growth process to be our best self and to provide the best service to our clients.

There are as many different types of Dommes as there are people. It is not my attempt to sway you in any given direction, but to give you information that will help guide you to answer these questions for yourself. If you don’t know yourself then how will you know what you want? These are some basics that everyone must address when getting started.

This class is being postponed due to the outbreak of COVID-19. The new date/time has not yet been determined, but will be announced here as well as other places where the class is listed.

Does asking for 350 “roses” protect me?


Who is my target market?
Where do I advertise?

This is NOT a class on technique, training, style or any of the details of using equipment & toys. This class address the bigger topics of how to get started and what to expect so you can determine if this is the right choice for you.

My business philosophy has always been the same. Hire the BEST people in the areas you are the weakest, step back and let them do their job. They will make you look good! In that vein, in addition to myself, I will have subject matter experts in the following fields presenting and answering your questions: This is my dream team. They help me to navigate the sometimes murky waters of this business.

Today that could not be a more accurate statement. An exciting part of social media is getting to craft a meaningful story that connects your brand with the right people.
