“Me and my husband are into lifestyle BDSM. I have been dominating him for number of years now, and before I’ve met him, I was a dominatrix as well. However, he came across Ms. Anne O Nomis - Seven Realm Arts class and I ended up signing in. All I can say, it was one of the best thing I have done ! Overall, I enjoyed the class very knowledgeable and professionally done! Strongly recommend!! There is no such a thing as enough knowledge, the more the better it is, especially in the BDSM world ! Ms. Anne O Nomis is brilliant in her punctuality, professionalism and easy to communicate with. If you are looking for becoming your best version of yourself in BDSM world, Seven Realm Arts is a must !!”
- Lady L
“Her years of international practical experience plus the thorough and historical research she has done shine through her teachings. Anne can not only reveal to you the hands on skills needed to safely and playfully embody the Dominatrix, but the psychological roots behind the desires the Dominatrix serves. She also highlights the ancient context of this role and its place within society, which lifts the veil on how necessary and sacred this practice really is. Her course The Seven Realm Arts is THE place to start if you are curious to embody power in the bedroom and beyond.”.
– The Procuress
“Anne is a wonderful teacher who presents the material in a structured/academic yet approachable manner. It's clear that she has multi-faced real-life experience in the subjects covered and she's obviously invested serious thought into developing and delivering the course. Anne is an engaging speaker and I found all of the course materials (both core and supplemental) to be very informative. I even enjoyed learning about activities and interests for which I don't have a penchant. This course is well worth the investment of money and time necessary to be an active participant in your own learning. I can't wait to take another of Anne's courses!”
- Mistress Alejandra Leder
“Anne’s Seven Realms Arts course was a privilege to be a part of. Her knowledge is extensive and so interesting. You can definitely tell that she loves what she does and enjoys sharing her experience with others. She was happy to answer any questions to ensure that we got what we needed out of the course. I look forward to doing more courses and workshops with Anne as I really love her teaching style and she makes us all feel like we can own our dominance in our individual ways”.
– Mistress of Melbourne
“Anne is an engaging & generous teacher. As a bit of a newbie, I felt both challenged and held during the course - its depth and breadth has given me many pathways I can now choose to walk down, along with an awesome community I feel supported by! If you’re thinking about taking this course, of course follow your truth, but I promise this teaching is second to none.”
“I cannot recommend Anne’s courses highly enough. Not only have I gained a rich theoretical understanding that most Dommes only gain after many years of professional experience, but also the practical skills to implement this knowledge in both personal and professional play. My understanding of myself and my own desires is now much greater and I also feel much more confident in meeting the needs of my play partners. You could not hope for a more generous and passionate teacher, it is a delight to learn from Anne. Thank you!”
- Mistress Ondine
In short - yes. Anne practices under a philosophy of "Large Heart, open mind" to all genders and sexualities. Anne just notes the Seven Realm Arts™ certificate course is informed by a Dominatrix tradition which has tended to be more FemDom orientated and for a largely male sub-identified clientele and which has influenced some aspects such as "CBT", and also for women stepping into Dominance coming head-to-head with gendered stigma and language which is discussed in the course. However Anne absolutely adores and welcomes diverse attendees including those who identify as non-binary, male-identified subs / slaves, etc. Anne notes that it must be understood that it is a predominantly FemDom course in terms of the knowledge tradition being taught having been derived from Dominatrix learning and practices. Anne specifically teaches around "Inanna's people" and discusses the people of the Goddess Inanna including people of gender non-binary and transgender, sexual submissives, and so forth.
