“Getting dressed before a session is a ritual,” says Mistress Adrienne. As a dominatrix, what she wears helps create a fantasy for her clients, who engage her in sessions for all sorts of personal reasons.

But above all else, she says, “I want something that I want to wear. I’m not someone who takes detailed requests from the clients, because then I’m not going to feel in my power.”

That may be a bright and colorful latex dress or a dark and intimidating leather jumpsuit. No matter what, she draws on her mood and what makes her feel good to dress in a way that taps her own inner strength.

“Confidence attracts, and confidence is power.”
