ANNE O NOMIS
ANNE O NOMIS is an Historian, Sexuality Educator, Speaker and Authoress.
Known as the 'elusive authoress' on the history of the Dominatrix, Ms Anne has a Masters degree from one of the UK's leading universities, UCL (University College London), and is winner of the Auckland University prize for Legal History writing.
Her first book, titled 'The History & Arts of the Dominatrix' has appeared in the world's top magazines on BDSM and fetish, received positive reviews and is one of the most cited books on the topic worldwide. It forms the basis of the curriculum training in dungeons around the world, and has been described as the Dominatrix's bible.
The book traces the history of dominant women through the ages, from the ancient world, to the female flagellants and whip-wielding governesses of the 17th-19th Century, to the bizarre ladies of the 20th Century underground. It goes on to theorize what a Dominatrix "does" in a framework set out as "The Seven Realm Arts".
Her second book, 'Flight of the Goddess' is due for completion shortly (watch this space!), after three years of research on the island of Cyprus, Berlin's Museum Island collections and the British Museum in London. Nomis explores ancient sex Goddesses, symbols and artwork across three thousand years of history, and powerful hymns in honour of the Goddess, and documentation of sex Goddess rituals drawn from texts and archaeological artifacts.
