Interview With Dominque Dvita
Dominique Dvita: Fetish & Pinup Model, real life nurse and one of my favorite people!
How did you become interested in fetish/BDSM?
I am always intrigued by things that are not considered "normal" by society standards. I was born on Halloween and am a Scorpio and drawn to things that are dark and mysterious. I was curious about Fetish & BDSM & desired to learn more about it. However, I was raised in a small town in Texas. So, it wasn't until I was older that I was able to visit LA & go to my first "Bondage" club. I was fascinated. Unfortunately, I continued to live in Texas until June 2008. Now I am pleased to be living in LA & have LOTS to learn and experience!
Coincidentally, within the last year I have been asked by numerous people if I am a Dominatrix. I have been a Registered Nurse for many years & while working at a hospital in LA; my coworkers and strangers would ask. Initially, this caught me by surprise. I wondered; "Why would anyone think I am into hurting people for pleasure?" Since this was repeatedly asked; I decided to take some time and give this some deep consideration. Then I realized....F*CK...I am a nurse and I have been doing f!cked up things to people for YEARS...all in the name of "making them feel better"!! WHOA! What a realization. So, now I am wanting to delve deeper and begin a journey of discovering and embracing my inner Dominatrix! Watch out world....here I come!!
Do you enjoy fetishism/BDSM play in your personal life, and if so what are you into?
"Sticks & Stones May Break My Bones; BUT Whips & Chains Excite Me" ~ Unknown
Initially, I enjoyed the power of my sexuality. The power I have over men and making them weak. Making them beg sexually...
For me, it is a huge turn on to have sex with very strong and powerful men (CEOs , lawyers, doctors). I'm not a gold digger, but to be able to bring a strong and successful man to his knees is an aphrodisiac for me!
I love fetishes that center around stockings, heels, corset, latex, rubber & bondage!
Other fetishes I have are as follows:
Scoptophilia- watching others be sexual
Troilism-watching ones partner having sex with someone else
Autagonistophilia-being on stage or on camera (thus part of my love for performing Burlesque)
Are there any fetishes you don't find appealing?
Infantilism, Necrophilia, Gerontophilia, and Scatophilia to name a few! I do respect that each of us have different fetishes for various reasons and I consider myself a very open minded person; not judgmental.
What excites you about fetish modeling?
I had my first fetish/bondage shoot with photographer Ken Marcus, and it was such an exciting experience! I am thrilled to bring my fantasies to life via fetish fashion. Latex and rubber wear are so sexy & I love the way they fit my curves! I love corsets, high heels, and stockings!! One of my personal faves is Atsuko Kudo clothing since they combine Pin Up fashion with latex, it's the best of both worlds!
Classic pinup has become a huge phenomena lately, what about it first captured your interest?
About eight years ago I stumbled upon one of Olivia's beautiful Bettie Page paintings. The painting was of Ms. Page as a nurse and I felt a connection with it instantly. I am a nurse and I felt that I had a faint resemblance to her. Over the next few years, I was repeatedly told that I did look like Bettie. Of course, such compliments were greatly appreciated but did not spark any ideas of modeling until one day in February of 2008. I was shopping in a lingerie boutique and the owner kept commenting on my shocking resemblance to Bettie Page. She took me to a salon next to her shop to be styled as Bettie so that evening we could do a mini photo-shoot! Consequently, a "monster" was born, the rest is history!
What is it that excites you about pinup modeling?
The femininity of pinup excites me most.
I love the feeling of "playing dress up"! Modern day women are so busy juggling the demands of both work and parenting that we have little time to indulge in the beauty rituals of years past. Back then, women would get "dolled" up and their make up was so glamorous with beautifully coiffed hair. All of the details like corsets, garter belts, stockings and gloves were worn daily! I love to indulge myself with pinup glamor; it makes me feel alluring.
What are your favorite types of outfits to model?
I sold lingerie in a department store during high school and I fell in love with all of the beautiful garments. It was hard to resist not spending my entire paycheck there! Now that I have the figure to wear it, I have an even greater appreciation for lingerie. I love modeling beautiful bras and panties, corsets, garter belts and stockings. (I also LOVE polka dots!)
What are your least favorites?
Thus far, I don't have a least favorite.
Do you think pinup and fetish are becoming part of the mainstream culture?
Recently, Bebe clothing has featured Pin up style clothing and their ads have models that look "pin up"; hair, etc. However, fashion always repeats itself. So, this may not be indicative of it becoming mainstream. The majority of people are still clueless regarding the following subjects: Bettie Page, burlesque, pinup, & fetish. I think more people may have a misconception about pinup and fetish. However, I don't feel it has reached the point of becoming mainstream culture.
What kind of music do you like?
IO Echo, Sade, She Wants Revenge, Madonna, Front 242, Depeche Mode, The Cure, Nina Simone, Portishead, Emiliana Torrini, Bjork, Baxter, Sia, Jill Scott, Peaches, Prodigy, The Beatles, Led Zepplin, Jimi Hendrix, Garbage, Deftones, Gaelle, Beck, Santogold, Uffie, Miss Kittin, and Bitter:Sweet are some of my current addictions. I love music and have a very diverse taste!
What do you like to do for fun?
Visit art galleries,travel, model, dance, perform burlesque, and reading are a few of my hobbies. When time permits I plan to take Scuba lessons.
