How to quit your shit job … and become a dominatrix!
March 28, 2020 By Elijah Others

Work is shit. Goddess Leo thought so too, until she quit her job at a financial services company and became a professional dominatrix. Today she is happier than ever – and also earns more money. We talked to her about her career change.

What jobs did you have before you became a dominatrix?
Goddess Cleo: I worked for a large financial service provider in the research department. Before that, I had management and research positions in a variety of areas, including retail, hospitality and entertainment. For a while I even worked in a call center. It was by far the crappiest job I’ve ever had. I really hated it and when I was there I felt physically ill. I held out for eight months, after which I was finished.

Why were the jobs so bad?
There was little flexibility and I found it extremely monotonous. The working days were long and the egos gigantic. I also didn’t like working with stressed and finished people. As a woman, you are particularly vulnerable to discrimination in the workplace.

And how did you get out of there?
The short version: I came across the blog of a woman who reported very openly and honestly about her life. She wrote about her job as a stripper and about her first experience in the Findom fetish, where you control the sub’s finances. Her name is Madame Says and she inspired me to consider dominatrix as a profession. I was totally fascinated by the world that she described in her blog.

Then one day I came across an ad that just said: “Would you like to become a professional dominatrix?” I have inevitably loud “but hello!” called out and replied to the ad. When I met the guy who ran the ad, there were two other interested women. We all got along really well and then went to the Torture Garden Party together to better familiarize ourselves with the fetish scene and BDSM. That night changed our lives – for the better. And finally I became a professional dominatrix, event planner and life coach.

What do you like most about your new job?
To be the one that leads others into the subspace. This is the noisy state that a sub can achieve in a session. Most people are unaware of the positive effects that the subspace can have on your mental health. It’s actually pretty sad. Do you know this endorphin high that fitness fanatics always talk about? The Runner’s High? Then multiply that by 20 and you know roughly how the subspace feels. You are floating, deeply relaxed, happy and full of trust. It’s like therapy.

The community is also extremely open to people of all sexualities and the entire gender spectrum. That’s great. Oh, and I also earn a lot more money than I used to.

Are there any negative sides?
The working hours! They are really long. And since I live it too, I work around the clock.

Have you experienced particularly funny or unusual things as a dominatrix?
Funny things keep happening in the sessions. I literally beat the shit out of a guy once. He was into ballbusting, the maltreatment of his testicles, and I kicked him so hard that he shit on my foot.

Do you feel safe
Definitely! I work with several security precautions. It’s always clear who I’m where with when. So far I have not had any bad experiences. TOI Toi Toi.

What would you have liked to know about your new job before you started?
Nothing! I was simply open and attentive from the start. I only regret not having made the change earlier. I feel like I have wasted so much time in a job that I hated. Instead, I could have had a lot more fun. I would have felt respected earlier in my role.

What was the worst moment in your old job?
To be released only two weeks after an intervertebral disc surgery, while another person in the company got six months after the same surgery. That was when I decided to look for another job. The recovery from the operation then took three to four months.

Rate your life before and today on a scale from 1 to 10.
It used to be about 4 out of 10. I was dirty. I had persistent health problems and had to work in pain. My employer hardly supported me. I felt like I was trapped. Today I rarely get under 8, even on my worst days. I really hate my new job. On the best days it is definitely a 10. Finally I have the freedom I always wanted. And I do what I love.

Do you feel sorry for your friends who continue to work in shitty jobs?
I’m not like that. But I’m definitely a big supporter of quitting your shit job. I would support anyone who wants to do that.

What advice would you give other people who hate their job?
The only person who can change your life for the better is you.
