For those of you who might be unaware, there’s a whole world of domination out there devoted to finance. A financial dominatrix will take money and gifts from their clients, who derive sexual pleasure from the act.

Inevitably, the world of cryptocurrency has merged with the sex industry, resulting in many services now accepting it as a form of payment. One such person is Paris-based financial dominatrix, Theodora, who even has nerdy clients mining crypto for her 24/7.

“It’s a form of psychological domination where money is the tool for the transfer of power,” she told MarketWatch. “It’s quite common for powerful men like politicians or CEOs to look for a form of sexual release by submitting to a woman — they are in control all the time during the day — and giving up control financially is a more tangible instrument of power for them.”

Some of Theodora’s clients even become a “human ATM,” giving her complete control of their bank accounts. Her clients are all men aged from late 30s to early 50s and are usually from the US and UK. 20 to 25 of them make donations as large as $100,000 in one go, and between 200 and 300 of them make smaller donations online and never meet her in person.

You can even pay her 25 bucks a minute to call and be ignored, or 69 (nice) bucks a minute to call and actually chat.

As a result of insane boom in bitcoin, Theodora’s profits have gone way up. She estimates her earnings from crypto alone are between $7,000 and $10,000 a month. She reckons she’s made well in excess of $1 million in cryptocurrencies since their rise.

“I take a lot of geek clients who like new technology and they were really excited when I taught them how to build a mining rig for me so they could mine 24/7 from their home,” she said.

While you might think this is all pretty fucked up from the perspective of the submissive party, it’s all totally consensual. Financial therapist, Debra Kaplan, says this form of domination is considered a kind of release for heaps of people, particularly those in high-paying jobs.

“There are many people who feel it’s an exploitative relationship — but ask most submissives if it’s exploitative and they will say it is not. They are willingly engaging in this,” she said.

So as weird as you think it is, some blokes are getting off on it like you wouldn’t believe. As for Theodora, it’s one helluva way to make a living.
