Dominatrix Bush Fire Relief Round Up

During January, I decided to turn my hand to helping with bush fire relief after seeing – and being impacted by – the bush fires here in Australia.

After all my hard work, I don’t have a final fund raising total because a number of people told me they donated but didn’t send me info (maybe privacy concerns?) but I know I raised more than I earn in a month for bush fire relief and that’s more than what most people can say. 


In the middle of my fund raising efforts when I was beginning to feel a little overwhelmed and overworked, I received a message from a member of the femdom community, a submissive man who at the time was sleeping on a friend’s couch after he had been evacuated from a town hit by the bush fires.

We messaged back and forth a bit about what he was going through and how happy he was to see my fund raising efforts. It was really heartening to read that, and to feel like what I was doing, even if it was small in the larger scheme of things, was helping members of the femdom community. My work was helping members of my own community. A community which is incredibly close to my heart.

Of course, that’s not why I did it in the first place. I raised funds because of the wider implications of these fires. But to see that my work would help members of my own very small – and often misunderstood – community lit me up.

Watching the news and seeing the impact of the fires on communities, Wildlife, the environment. That broke my heart. Knowing though that members of our community were impacted like that really bought things closer to home for me and made them a little more real, even as I had been impacted directly by the fires in a smaller way myself. 

As much as dommes delight in playing the bitch, taking those social conventions of what is acceptable female behavior and burning them so we can be harsh when we’re told to be sweet or sensual when we’re told to cover up, we are just as human as everyone else. Tragedies like this break our hearts. They hit home when our community is directly impacted.

Overall I am really glad I did this. I do volunteer and donate money in my vanilla life. When I started this though I had my hesitations as I wasn’t sure I could raise anything, and was imagining a backlash that never came. 

Raising a heap of money and hearing from members of my own community who that money will benefit, that makes a big difference. That makes it all worth it.

Perhaps in the future I could lend this small platform to other important work. Right now though, I am going to pick up my whip and make some submissive boys very happy! 


Until next time, 

Victoria
