C.J. Asher Interviews Madam RavenRae, Foot Model and FemDom Starlet

awedd fMadam RavenRae is a foot model and professional dominatrix based out of Los Angeles who I met at this year’s Adult Entertainment Expo. I recently had the chance to speak with her and learn more about the foot fetish lifestyle, as well as her own experiences within the industry.

C.J. Asher – First of all, tell me a little about yourself and the types of services you provide.

Madam RavenRae – I am a ProDom (professional dominatrix). I own a few companies and run a few others like a true boss, including two (video) clip stores. I offer many types of services from smelly hockey goalie foot worship sessions to full pain and BDSM services. My sessions are custom tailored, so pricing is always personalized! I also am a professional model and actress with stage and improv acting experience. Being good in front of the camera comes from winning awards behind the camera. I’ve had reconstructive spinal surgery with two metal rods, nuts and bolts and my entire back is fused together. No lifting, bending, twisting, sitting or doing much of anything for two or more hours is what the doctors wants. I can’t just call into my “job” and say “hey my back hurts, I can’t come into work today because I can’t fucking move” … that just doesn’t work. So I have found a way to work for myself since I was 18. This gives me the sadistic emotional satisfaction I need. Recently, I found out I have some very extreme health issues. I’ve been riddled with osteoarthritis at a very young age due to Crohn’s disease that I found out I have. It’s been a very interesting battle, but it definitely has shown me that I’m going on the right path in life; being a female dominant is exactly where I’m supposed to be. I have never been on disability… the world has wanted me to be on it since I was 18 and I told the world to fuck off. I’ve been telling everybody else fuck off since then; however, my mother will argue and say I’ve been saying fuck off to everybody since the day I was born. And I have to say I get my sexy feet from my mama.

C.J. Asher – How did you decide to get into the foot fetish model industry?

Madam RavenRae – I’ve been a professional mainstream model for over six years. After shoots, the photographers always had a “personal project” they were working on and asked to take a few shots of my feet. I would laugh and say to myself “sure, why not.” My first fetish shoot was over ten years ago and it was a tickle shoot. I had a lot of fun and learned a lot. Being an aggressive stripper when I was younger felt right and brought me into a whole new world. When my ex-husband wanted to fuck my feet all the time I got a clue that they were pretty sexy.

C.J. Asher – How did you come up with your name “RavenRae”?

Madam RavenRae – It is the name I’ve been called by my hippy mother whose favorite bird is a raven. Also, her middle name and my sister’s middle name is Rae and I really liked it so we added it together years ago and it’s been my name ever since. To us as a family thing, it’s a respect thing.

C.J. Asher – How do you primarily obtain new clients, through people on social media finding you?

Madam RavenRae – For now, I have a lot of traffic from Twitter and Facebook. Clients can see my interaction with past clients and producers so they know I’m the real deal! I advertise on BackPage, but I only take sessions for who places a deposit. This weeds out the non-serious lookie-lues. I will be on Eros once a slave pays for it; meanwhile, my money goes towards my grand lifestyle! Winning Foot Night International’s “Most Photogenic Feet 2015” helped a lot too and people can always find me through their website.

sertgdfxC.J. Asher – How has your work as a fetish model impacted your personal life?  Are the two intertwined or are they separate?

Madam RavenRae – I have always been very open but, for the first few years as a pro-dom, I told family and friends they were just modeling gigs. My life has completely transformed into being a full time goddess to worship and admire. They never used to intertwine; however, now my mom sends me anklets and toe rings and my sister has me post photos of her feet. My mother has really learned to take her power back and all my friends who haven’t disowned me think it’s so rad and the right thing for me. I have my “vanilla” stuff that I keep separate, but it is slowly losing a place in my life next to my slave, the hot lights of filming and long travel across the country.

C.J. Asher – Is this a full-time job for you, if not what type of work do you do?

Madam RavenRae – It never used to be, but now it’s all I ever want to do! I live, eat, sleep and breathe fetish now! I have a new view of female power and I can’t wait to educate more females and train more males to make this world a much more inhabitable place full of respect and people who know their roles. Right now it is a full time job putting people in their place, and I wouldn’t change it for the world. This happens to have been the path of least resistance in my life. I don’t feel like going against the grain anymore; if this is my life path and the way I’m supposed to go then so be it… It’s not too bad you know?!

C.J. Asher – Tell me a bit about your clients… demographically speaking, do they share anything in common or do they come from all walks of life?

Madam RavenRae – All walks of life, but most of them are very well-off men. I don’t like cheaters, so most are single older gentlemen who know, after years of great wisdom, that a man’s place is under foot. Most travel to me in L.A. from all over the world. I also have couples and females as well. There’s no real way to answer; since sexuality is based on a continuum, my job will always have a revolving door of steady clients who evolve as well. Most know exactly what they want and, usually, it’s my soft beautiful feet. I’m starting to get more and more young people, around nineteen- to twenty-years old, who are seeing a mistress for the first time. Sometimes I think it’s kind of odd and sometimes I think it’s really cool that they have no fear. The young kids don’t have the shame that the older people grew up with; it’s quite interesting to see the difference between the younger mindset and the older generation. Even though they are younger, they are usually pretty well off and have no problem paying my fees and placing deposits like good boys. My clients are pretty freaking cool; I have to admit, I have some of the coolest clients in the entire world. I love my clients to death and I treat them as if they’re my children. They’ve been coming back very steadily for a reason.

C.J. Asher – What’s the oddest request you’ve ever received for Dominatrix services?  How about as a fetish model?

Madam RavenRae – This is a pretty hard question to answer actually because the requests I’ve received are all over the board! From getting tied up over an entire weekend to putting an entire foot up their ass to shitting all over the place to farting for an hour to you fucking name it! Anything you can think I’ve gotten a request for; I’ve actually had a legitimate request to shrink somebody and eat them. This is the giantess fetish that I do quite well at; however, it is a fantasy in a fantasy world and some people can’t distinguish the difference. But recently somebody requested to mail me an endoscope camera, have me swallow it and gave me directions exactly how to do this medical procedure so he can watch my stomach muscles digest for 10 minutes. All I can do is shake my head at these kinds of requests because I don’t get paid enough to listen to his medical procedure advice.

C.J. Asher – What do you like to do for fun in your down time?

Madam RavenRae – I play roller and ice hockey as a goalie, drink at the pub, play video games such as Halo, 420, am active when I can with skateboarding, bike riding, horseback riding, ice skating, sunbathing with a cocktail on the beach with half naked women… everything a Goddess can learn to expect from life! I do have a passion for being behind the camera as well; I’ve been working a lot more as a videographer. This truly is a passion of mine and, since the clips I film always go to the top ten, people have no problem handing me the camera. I also do quite enjoy gardening… watching my plants grow and being able to feed the neighborhood is always fun for me. It always makes me feel like a true goddess. I love music and can’t be away from it for too long. If a submissive would love to send me traveling to new and exotic locations that’s always the most sexy way to pass my time.

we4rtserC.J. Asher – What adult entertainment conventions do you attend?

Madam RavenRae – I attend the AVN Expo. Since it’s in Las Vegas and I’m located in Los Angeles, it makes it really easy just to hop over whenever I need to. I will be attending EXXXOTICA in Chicago and I’m going to try to also attend Houston EXXXOTICA as well. I’ve never attended EXXXOTICA, so that should be very fun for me and, if all goes well, I will be visiting more of them. And of course Fetishcon! I love Fetishcon; it is the best time of the year… I wouldn’t miss it for the world. I went last year and I fell in love, but I have to say it’s the only time you’ll see my ass in Florida… I hate that state! I haven’t really ventured over to DomCon yet… the sissies that come to L.A. have been more annoying than profitable. I do quite enjoy the Los Angeles Fetish Film Festival as it was quite entertaining and definitely highlighted the talents of the industry. I would love for the Fetish Film Festival to really grow and develop into something that recognizes the talents of the fetish world in production so not only can we win awards for in front of the camera but also for behind it as well.

C.J. Asher – What do you charge for Dominatrix services?

Madam RavenRae – Like I stated before, all of my services are very custom tailored. Everyone’s different and everyone takes up a different part of energy from me so your session depends on how much energy I have to put out. Generally speaking, I start at the most basic level of foot worship for $200.00 and I charge a $50.00 deposit on top of that. If everything goes smoothly, I take the $50.00 deposit out of the $200.00. So it actually pays you not to be a dick through email. More strenuous BDSM sessions and dominatrix services start at $300.00 with a $50.00 deposit. So my services are basically $200.00 to $350.00 and up again depending on the exact content of the session. I don’t take any session without a deposit; it’s just not worth it for me since I don’t need to sit around and wait for some loser to flake. Also, I have two different prices because they’re two different completely sessions altogether! I never do anything for less than hundred dollars so, as far as web camming, a half hour foot worship session and anything that was requested for a lesser price all of my pricing starts at $100. That includes webcam, custom clips, foot worship, modeling… anything! It’s the biggest pet peeve of mine for somebody to offer me $50.00 or $80.00 for my time.

C.J. Asher – One of the biggest trends in adult entertainment these days is the Fifty Shade of Grey phenomenon; how has this impacted your work as a Dominatrix?

Madam RavenRae – First of all let me say that I fucking hate the movie! It’s a sick and twisted codependent relationship based on immature feelings and unaware psychosis. This is not BDSM; this is not fetish. And now every man thinks it’s my place to be under him! It’s completely fucking backwards and it can’t disgust me enough because the submissive men that come to me really aren’t and then, when I tell them no because they clearly said something that is “topping from the bottom,” and I deny them, they go off on me as if they’re entitled to superiority. That movie does not teach about specific roles such as a sub, dom or switch; it doesn’t teach about gender fluidity (which is a huge role in our community), it doesn’t teach about all the things that encompass fetish being okay with who you are and being accepting of other people and finding your way through mutual respect. Now, it’s one thing if you’re a naturally submissive female, but I am not and the fact that that movie has made it so that every young asshole has approached me to try to beat the shit out of me disgusts me. On the other hand, I feel it has brought to light something that has been the shadows for a very long time and the seed is now planted which I am very thankful for because, with the right nurturing, you can actually grow into what it’s supposed to be. So, a lot of first-timers don’t do their research and expect something totally different…I’m still waiting for the sequel where she fucks him up!

C.J. Asher – What type of gifts and “tribute” do you enjoy receiving and how can your admirers support you?

Madam RavenRae – MONEY MONEY MONEY! I can go out and live my life, I can be happy, I can go to the movies if I want to. In a dominance world, men don’t really have much of a role and, since they love to flaunt their money, that’s all I want from them. They want something from me like my feet or my domineering personality and all I want from them in return is all of their money! Tributes are best and straight cash as well; however, Southwest gift cards are fucking amazing because I can travel whenever I want if I have an event like EXXXOTICA to attend. I have quite a few different wish lists, one has a bunch of high heels… I absolutely adore my huge shoe collection, it’s absolutely ginormous! Anything I need as far as production and stuff would be nice so I can keep filming. I also put on my wish list some tributes just to show me that you appreciate what I do, just to say “hey, I jerked off to your pictures a hundred times and I’ve never given you a dime so here’s a new camera lens” or “hey, I bought a million of your clips and I jerk off to you every single day and I think your feet are amazing here’s a pair of sexy sandals to wear in your next clip.” Those kinds of things are very much appreciated! In order to keep my feet sexy, I have to get a $60.00 pedicure every week and I have to keep my shoes nice. There are a lot of expenses that go into everything and the more money and tributes that my fans give me, the better and sexier my pictures and my clips will be.

wvr zsretC.J. Asher – What advice do you have for a first-time client or someone interested in learning more about the foot fetish lifestyle?

Madam RavenRae – Do your research! Figure out which mistress does what since we all do something different. Go on to fetlife.com, find a mistress and review her writings to see what’s going through her head. For me, it’s super annoying for somebody to ask me a million questions that I’ve already answered in my profile. Foot Night International… go go go! Don’t be a little sissy bitch, grow a pair and attend a foot night! Everybody there is for the same purpose; if you see somebody you know it’s actually going to be really cool for you guys I promise! Don’t be scared, it’s just a really great place for you to learn about foot worship and meet the models. Don’t go on CraigsList, I promise that you’ll be disappointed. For your first couple of experiences you will have to pay a professional… you’re going to have to suck it up and do it until you are comfortable enough to have this happen in your everyday life since nobody wants to just volunteer their time so you can explore your sexuality. Send me an email with a tribute or call me on NiteFlirt if you are seriously interested and we can talk all about it. I understand the psychology behind foot fetish like nobody else!

C.J. Asher – Without giving away any secrets, how do you keep your feet in tip-top, performance shape?

Madam RavenRae – Oh this is easy… it’s daily maintenance! Girls don’t understand how important it is to add that extra two minutes into your shower routine to pumice stone your feet! It’s like two minutes and they always just “forget.” I get a pedicure every week which does add up so that’s why tributes help. I am constantly filing, shaping and pampering my feet. I have to say a few boyfriends had mentioned that semen is a good moisturizer. Playing hockey as well as wearing high heels can be very difficult on the feet, so my slave gives me constant foot rubs and cleans them with his teeth amongst other things that I do, but I’m going to leave you wondering…

C.J. Asher – What is the most difficult part of your job?

Madam RavenRae – Honestly, it’s the instability and the constantly getting flaked on, hence why I had to implement a security deposit. One week I waited an entire week at home… I didn’t go to the movies with my family and I didn’t go to dinner because I had sessions that were booked that never showed up so I waited around with nothing to do and no money to show for it. That was one of the first years I started doing it professionally and I promised myself I would never do that again. Also, people misconstrue fetish for porn! I don’t do hard-core porn, I don’t do insertion and I don’t do a lot of things that would constitute as normal porn, but yet I’m constantly being criticized for being a “porn star.” To me it’s ridiculous and ignorant; however, I do feel that this is why I’ve been placed here: to educate the masses. I do feel that there needs to be another subcategory and fetish needs to break away from porn and be its own separate entity; however, that’s very far down the line. It’s still a very big pet peeve of mine for people I know and family to look at me as if I do hard-core porn when I don’t. I have lost several friends that don’t understand and have family members I just choose not to talk to, but the most difficult thing I think is to keep my mouth shut to people that I really shouldn’t tell. But to me it’s such a big part of my life that I really don’t care, so a lot of people in my personal life have very mixed feelings about me personally.

C.J. Asher – Do you prefer male or female clients or does it not matter?

Madam RavenRae – I will always prefer female clients! I love females and I love everything about females… and, yes, I love to dominate females! I really do think of man as a lesser species, a workhorse if you will not an intellectually superior being. So, when I do foot worship sessions, I truly am dominating them in my head. To me, it is their rightful place to be underfoot, to worship a goddess to smell her, clean her feet and bow down to a more in-depth life producing being. Besides, who will get me and her a sandwich after?
