There are countless faces to the coin that is human sexuality. And in the spirit of celebrating each and every one of our erotic inclinations, Dazed had a sit-down with London-based Kawaii Pro-Domme, Princess Almighty. And the fascinating findings will only serve to broaden your horizons.
'Kawaii' is Japanese for 'ultra cute' which is basically their way of referring to the Lolita, the 'Over The Top' (OTT) girly-girl.
A known face in the London, Amsterdam and Berlin BDSM scenes and a fetish model for brands such as Kink Canary, Catronia Stewart Latex and The English Mansion, Princess Almighty takes the idea of the uber cute kawaii girl and "fucks with it".
In her room, riddled with Hello Kitty franchise all over - stuffed toys, posters, decora - Almighty spoke to Dazed about her journey into kawaii culture, and the transition into the world of erotic domination.
"Growing up I was a bit of a tomboy. I wasn’t really a typical girl. I wasn’t into clothes or make-up. I was into dinosaurs. Then, when I was 11, I went to a car boot sale with my Mum and Dad and I bought my first Hello Kitty. That started me off."
She does obviously get a lot of requests for age play, but makes it a point ot keep everything kosher. "Everything is age of consent which is 16 in the UK." Sometimes, though she gets requested to play a 10 or 11 year old, sometimes even younger - and she simply terminates these requests.
She revealed that life bores her sometimes and she's always looking to make things more exciting - and she really has found a way to do it, that may ensure she's never bored again. Since this just might be the motherload of exciting.
The one thing to take away from this would have to be - be who you want to be. 'Cause in the words of the Princess herself, "Fuck all of this."
