A long-time veteran of NYC’s domme scene, Mistress Ariana Chevalier has been a fixture of the fetish scene since way before domme-ing had become a pop cultural fascination. From helming the city’s biggest, woman-run dungeon to being on the frontlines of Bloomberg’s infamous brothel crackdown — which shut down dungeons on the basis of New York’s antiquated sodomy law — Chevalier has seen it all.

A rubber specialist, Chevalier has traveled across the globe to meet clients who had heard of her legendary skills. Armed with an arsenal of hoods, catsuits, and whips accumulated over several decades of working, Chevalier is, arguably, the person to call when you want to explore rubber play.

After all, she’s been in the game since the mid-90s. While searching for a second job, Chevalier dove headfirst into the femme domme world after getting hired at a dungeon purchased by a husband-wife team. The only downside? The man in charge overtly told Chevalier that she “wouldn’t be able to make as much as any other women because of [her] skin color.”

That said, she spent this formative period honing her craft and making sure that every client who came her way always had the best time — to the point where she “eventually was booked the entire time.” Unfortunately, it also soon became apparent to her that “money was going missing.”

Fast forward to Chevalier’s decision to break away from the male-owned dungeon and start her own with two other women. And she hasn’t looked back since.
