You know what’s so great about Tumblr? It’s like a time travel machine, because in the quest for new content, people scan and post all sorts of things; stuff they found in attics, old magazines, Polaroid snaps, and half-developed rolls of film from 1984.
Here’s Countess Denica in her heyday. There’s no question this woman is a confirmed Domme, of course. Head to toe in black, tight, restrictive leather, high heels (not boots, but passable shoes), a neck collar, and a braided flogger. And of course, she’s a Countess.
But the instructive point about this shot is that Countess Denica is at the edge of the… kitchen. For some reason, swanky bedrooms and chrome/glass living rooms take a back seat to kitchens when it comes to BDSM scenes, shown more often than any other room with the exception of bathrooms.
I love Countess Denica, because she’s often shown in enough leather to upholster a small sofa.
Tropes: Leather, leather, and more leather.
