Jenny Nordbak was a dominatrix for Hollywood A-listers

Jenny Nordbak is a mom-of-one, a wife, and has a B.A. in Interdisciplinary Archaeology from the University of Southern California.

She’s also a retired dominatrix for Hollywood’s rich and famous.

“I was just about to graduate from USC and was at that crisis point that I think a lot of 22-year-olds reach where I wasn’t’ sure what I was doing with my life,” Nordbak told Fox News.

That’s when Norbak came across an ad for a BDSM dungeon in Los Angeles.

“I kind of went looking for trouble and happened to find it at a dungeon,” she explained saying she took a job there “on impulse.”

It didn’t take long for Nordbak to get hooked on the dominatrix lifestyle. After a series of bad relationships, the then 22-year-old was ready for a change. It didn’t hurt that a few of her clients were well-known actors, even one she had a crush on.

“I had one particularly famous actor,” she told us. “It was surreal and it was definitely distracting at first because you’re supposed to be this aloof and powerful, put together character and starstuck doesn’t have any place in that. So I had to put that to one side.”

Aside from the A-list stars and powerful Hollywood executives that walked through Nordbak’s doors, she did have several D-list clients that were maybe there for the wrong reasons.

“We sometimes saw…D-listers we thought they were coming in, in the hopes that they’d make the news and become noteworthy again [for being spotted at a dungeon].”

Nordbak quit her job as a dominatrix after two years. She hopes that her book, “The Scarlett Letters: My Secret Year of Men in an L.A. Dungeon,” will help women have a more positive view on their sexuality.

“I think the world needs more sex positivity, particularly from women and I think more openness around sex work as well is a good thing,” she said. “There are women out there who are doing it and are not desperate or being exploited. They’re put together driven women who happened to be in a profession that’s outside of the norm.”

Nordbak has already received positive feedback from her moms’ book group in L.A. who had tons of questions for her after reading her book.

“[Women] are curious but don’t know how about going about something like that in their own lives, especially if they’ve been married for a long time.”

Questions Nordbak doesn’t particularly enjoy answering is how her work as a dominatrix holds up to the “50 Shades of Grey” book series.

“I think it’s clearly the work of fantasy versus a reflection of an authentic experience,” she explained. “I think the presentation of the BDSM relationship could be better especially in terms of consent…it’s presented [as if] he’s got some sort of affliction and there’s something wrong with him…versus they’re both [consenting] and both interested in exploring.”

However, the popularity of the “50 Shades of Grey” series helped Nordbak’s family relate to her former profession when she told them the truth about her old job.

“It was terrifying…but they were supportive,” she said.

When it comes to telling her son, who is now one, about being a dominatrix, Nordbak will cross that road when the day comes.

“I’m not ashamed of anything I’ve ever done and I don’t think it should be too tough of a conversation…when he’s old enough to understand.”
