The History of Femdom

PANDORAS BOX DUNGEON NY

Female domination has existed in written and pictorial history since the time of ancient Mesopotamians, when worshippers would flock to their goddesses’ temples and submit themselves to both pain and self-induced pleasures. Those ancient times are not so different from BDSM today – with flogging, male-to-female crossdressing, and scenes similar to those painted into murals in Pompeii with femdoms allowing men to be their submissive slaves.

Even Aristotle was dominated by a powerful woman, and knelt to her so she could ride his back while whipping and humiliating him. We know of severe disciplinarians, governesses, flagellants, and other famous female dominants from the 10th century and on – some using bondage equipment, chastity devices, spanking benches, and some more wildly creative and sinister – collecting tributes from both men and women. 

As one of the best known BDSM studios, our New York dungeon echoes these stories of the past with historic use of suspensions and various tools for corporal punishment. Sensory deprivation, model foot worship, medical fantasies, rope bondage (shibari), fetish play and plenty more are also a part of daily life here. After a visit to a New York Domme at Pandora’s Box Dungeon NY, you may even be lucky enough to walk home with a new, discreet, submissive collar under your clean, pressed, button-up shirt and tie.
