Last Chance for Local Fashionistas

Just a few weeks remain to admire the creative genius of fashion designer Anna Sui at NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale, 1 E. Las Olas Blvd. in downtown Fort Lauderdale.  

With over 100 looks, “The World of Anna Sui,” closing on Oct. 3, explores the glamorous and eclectic world of one of New York’s most beloved and accomplished designers, and invites viewers to step inside Sui’s imagination to discover her creative process and the diverse influences that contribute to her signature aesthetic sensibility.

The ‘Art’ of Sexual Extortion

Some days we just scratch our heads at the press releases that land in our inbox. Seriously, we just can’t make this stuff up! Take this one:

Mistress Marley, aka “The Chocolate Domme,” is set to host an informative and inspiring seminar, “FinDom 101 - Practical Steps for Beginners,” Saturday, Sept. 18 at 9 p.m., exclusively for 2021 eXXXotica Miami Expo attendees.  

Marley will go over the basics of financial domination, a popular fetish that involves the consensual practice of psychological humiliation while demanding gifts and/or money from a submissive. Aspiring domes will learn how to properly establish a high-profile online presence and mentally condition a sub during a session.

“While it takes a lot of time and practice to hone your craft as a financial dominatrix, it’s important to understand the basics of the profession and find out if this lifestyle might be — or might not be — right for you,” said Marley. “With this seminar, my goal is to offer helpful, real-world advice and recommendations that can get you on the road to a new career and explore the possibilities of mutual fulfillment with others while making the money that you truly deserve.”

“FinDom 101 - Practical Steps for Beginners” is one hour long and will take place on the show floor of the Miami Airport Convention Center. To purchase tickets, go to eXXXoticaexpo.com/tickets.
