Our Purpose

"She was a fine woman. A perfect gentlewoman. She had taken life, as she liked a cup of tea--weak, with an exquisite aroma and plenty of cream and sugar."

-Henry James, De Grey: A Romance

Atheris also was one of the training Mistresses for the tea society.

She currently runs FantasyMakers' Academy and schedules classes. She lives in the East Bay with her dog Toby.

To Meet Dominant Ladies...

The best way to meet dominant ladies is to attend munches, events, classes, and parties in the bay area. If you look at the Society of Janus Calendar, you'll see that there is something going on in the bay area just about every night. Pick your event and attend it! If you're nice and polite, chat with everyone, and don't lead with your fetishes, chances are that you'll make friends and start being invited to things.

If you go to things and wait for people to talk to you, well, you may wait a long time. You're going to have to make an effort here.

Volunteering is a really good thing for those of you who are shy. It gives you something to do, makes sure that you'll interact with others, and also causes people to think well of you. Mikey Smilinguy volunteered at all sorts of events when he first got into the scene. He's one of the most respected gentlemen in the bay area. Everyone knows and likes him. This is someone who would make a good role model.

Sitting behind your computer and waiting for your princess to come isn't going to get you anywhere. This is the bay area. If you looked at that events calendar, you will see that your potential princess can find something to do every night of the week. She isn't going to need to sit at home waiting for you. And she's probably not going to be all that interested in some guy she met online who won't attend anything in public. Public is safe for ladies. Plus, it's non-threatening. So get out there and get involved.
