On shame

I am erotically obsessed with shame. Shame – the emotion that Silvan S. Tomkins defined as one of the primary ‘negative affects’ – is a uniquely physical thing. Shame is felt in the pit of your stomach, and is often manifested through blushes, prickling skin and an increased awareness of …

On film

Just in time for my 27th birthday last week, I chopped off some of my hair and decided it was time for some new pictures to reflect the change. I’d also been looking to shoot with the wonderful Jennifer from Run Deep for a while, and this seemed like the ideal …

On the city

There is a side of the city you will not be able to see until you have done this job. There is a whole separate world mapped alongside the one you occupied before; the city and its double, revealed to you only gradually as you wind your way down another …

On neon

It was Foucault that posited that power would eventually be located in “just the inspecting gaze”, and as an exhibitionist, there always been something thrilling in playing with notions of performance, spectacle and voyeurism. These ideas inspired my latest teaser, a neon-drenched homage to Tokyo Decadence and the all-seeing eye …

On feedback

I’ve always been a little ambivalent about review culture. This may be the age of Uber ratings and Trip Advisor stars, but when it comes to something as subjective as desire, overly-simplistic definitions of ‘positive’ vs ‘negative’ seem wholly inadequate. This uncertainty prevails in parts of the adult industry, with …

On boundaries

As a BDSM practitioner, few things make me more sceptical than when a lover tells me they have “no boundaries”. As part of the negotiation and communication that I do with anyone I play with, I like to have a candid conversation about our mutual desires and preferences, and boundaries form a …

On latex

I’ve just shot some rather gorgeous new content featuring exquisite pastel latex from one of my favourite designers, William Wilde. I’ve always loved latex. It’s not a material one takes lightly, and there’s an undeniably ritualistic component to getting dressed in it. You need to prepare yourself before you put it on, …

On film

Due to a slight ongoing technical issue, my promo videos aren’t functioning my gallery currently. Rather than deny you all these visuals, as an interim measure, you can see them all below. I’ll be refreshing my site in early 2018 (along with even more new content), so we should be …

On Exposure

When you’re a receptionist at your husband’s office, you don’t see much glamour. But the newest client was a rare exception. I drank her in as she leaned over my desk, signing a cheque. In her red lipstick and white fur coat, she was a raven-haired vision. “Is it real?” …

On hunger

Even before I saw it, I knew it was from you. It was on the doorstep, when I got home from work: a brown box, with my name written on it. I opened it in the kitchen, pulling at layers of tissue, my breath coming fast. I’d been denying myself—no …

On glimpses

For those of you of an aesthetic persuasion, i’ve just added some new images to my gallery. I’ll let them speak for themselves, but I wanted to create some photos that included both the polished, formal sexiness of lingerie, along with the more casual ‘t shirt and white panties’ look that I feel …

On play spaces

Commercial dungeons are an endangered species in London right now. With fetish spaces like Murder Mile and The Hoist recently shutting up shop, it’s increasingly difficult to find stylish, suitable spaces for indulging your kinks. However, hope is not lost for those of us with more niche tastes. As someone …
