ONYX PEARLS SOUTH EAST (OPSE) LIFETIME HONORARY MEMBER
Mistress Mir is one of the greatest personal Dominants, of our time, in the Leather BDSM world. If there was a BDSM Hall of Fame, she would be the top of tops. As a Lifestyler, She has trained more submissives than anyone using her sensual erotic manner, of training. She has been a true lady of the BDSM scene for over thirty-nine years, both personally and professionally.
Trained in the Old Guard tradition, Mistress Mir brings a sense of honor into her play. Her expertise lies in her erotic sensual play and her knowledge of bondage and corporal punishment. So where does all the training start? With her using her Old Guard techniques, this was started with the gay motorcycle men after World War ll. This was the start of our leather scene in the U.S., very military and strict. This style is still in the hearts of the older players.
In Her Own Words:
“For my first five years, I served Two Masters, which helped establish my respect, for my clients today. If I were not a slave, I truly believe, that I could not have developed into the person you see now. It was truly a plus and I would not change any part of it! The past allows us to understand our path, upon which we travel today. Some people take the negative and others toss it aside. I found myself looking inward for answers. By using my submissive and dominant sides with my Masters permission, it allowed me to achieve a greater understanding, far beyond others.
My dungeons consisted of two rooms, with ten structural pieces; it was one of the best equipped privately owned, establishments, in the tri-state area. My personal code of ethics was simple. It circled around the health and safety of my clients. I treat all my slaves with respect. They are all valued for their individuality. I would not do anything that would jeopardize them or me. The well-being of my clients took precedence.”
