"In Professor-Dominatrix Scandal, U. of New Mexico Feels the Pain"

on Monday, 20 September 2010. Hits 2022

"In Professor-Dominatrix Scandal, U. of New Mexico Feels the Pain"

Chronicle of Higher Education

In some ways, working as a phone-sex dominatrix is a lot simpler than being on a college faculty. Your relationship with others is clearly defined, no one formally complains about anything you say to them, and you stand little risk of getting caught up in messy struggles over power.

It gets complicated, however, if you try to do both jobs. Life has become extremely complex in the University of New Mexico's English department in the three years since Lisa D. ChÃvez, a tenured associate professor, was discovered moonlighting as the phone-sex dominatrix "Mistress Jade," and posing in promotional pictures sexually dominating one of her own graduate students.

Creative Loafing

 "We no longer have patience with an administration that fails to take
a strong stand against police misconduct — and for the civil
liberties of all of its citizens, no matter their sexual orientation.
Reed and Turner must immediately make clear that all members of the
police department will cooperate with the CRB in its investigation,
wherever it may lead. And those who don't must be fired."

NCSF Press Release

on Wednesday, 15 September 2010. Hits 1745

In an indictment rendered by a Grand Jury in the Western District of Missouri on September 9, 2010, five Missouri men allegedly participated in torturing a mentally disabled woman online or in person over a multi-year period when the victim was between the ages of 16 and 24. Among the charges are: Sex Trafficking by Force, Fraud or Coercion, Forced Labor Trafficking, Transportation for Sexual Activity, and Conspiracy. The allegations involve sex with a minor, drug and firearms possession, forced prostitution, sexual abuse, and torture to the point that the victim suffered a heart attack. 

These activities should not be confused with consensual BDSM. People who engage in BDSM and other similar activities do so as consenting adults and in a safe, sane, and consensual manner. BDSM activities are not violent specifically because all participants can stop any time they wish. Millions of people engage in BDSM: according to the Kinsey Institute's New Report on Sex, between 5-10% of the adult population engages in BDSM on at least an occasional basis.

NCSF strongly condemns criminals who commit violence and engage in non-consensual activities. We encourage the media to remember that the large community of consenting adults who engage in BDSM activities should not be conflated with these alleged crimes. Ordinary people do BDSM – parents, co-workers, friends, and neighbors. But because of the stigma against BDSM, most people are closeted and don't speak out about their interests because they fear condemnation and discrimination.

"N.Y. Records May Help to Answer the Question: When Is Bondage Prostitution?"

New York Law Journal

A Manhattan judge has ordered the New York City Police Department to shine a light on the hazy legal line separating bondage, domination and sadomasochism from prostitution.

In a decision last week, New York County Supreme Court Justice Carol R. Edmead (See Profile) directed the NYPD to provide the Urban Justice Center's Sex Workers Project with documents regarding police investigations of several Manhattan bondage, domination and sadomasochism clubs between 2006 and 2008.
