In New York City’s Lower East Side there’s a dungeon with whips, swords, and a slave in chains where Conrad, a male dominatrix, carries out his work at his client’s request. On Working this week, Conrad talks to Arun Venugopal about the impact the Rent Boys bust had on his profession, one of the best places to meet clientele, and some of his safety concerns in the industry. Plus, Conrad talks about accidently hurting a few clients and how he’s finding a second sexual peak as a “Daddy.”

 

In a Slate Plus extra, Conrad talks about how he came out as a dominatrix to his parents and how it isn’t always easy to tell people what he does for a living.
