For almost a year I have been practising financial domination (FinDom) in the virtual world. I have an avatar in Second Life. She is my alter ego, a dominant woman who has financial slaves and submissive men. The relationship with my subs is virtual and they let me drain their wallets and ruin them financially.
The money I got was a virtual currency exchangeable to real money. My submissives know this as well as the fact that we will never meet in person. They do not know or care who is behind the screen as they just follow a fetish, a 3d Domme, no matter who is on the other side.
I’ve always been interested in the relationship between what could be true and what is just an illusion or a virtual entity. But also the relationship between the role of genders and power is a constant in my work. In this specific project I am interested in money having an active value in a virtual society, people exchanging money and data power been conscious they will never get to know who is actually behind the computer. The territory of virtual FinDom is full of hope, fantasies, fetishes, scams and egos.
