Psychological Edge Play

I deeply enjoy pushing you toward that which makes you uncomfortable or fearful, including: 





Trauma History

 This type of play can be transformative, deeply satisfying and healing if you practice rigorous self-awareness and honesty. My extensive training in therapeutic technique, including trauma-aware practices, allows me to guide you along the edge of an intense experience while avoiding negative outcomes.

Play is extensively negotiated beforehand, may be adjusted within the scene, and always includes aftercare.


I create highly controlled environments that feature realistic details, such as:


Reform School

Psychiatric Hold 

Conversion Camp

Prison Experiment

My goal is for you to become immersed in a scenario to the point of experiencing genuine fear, powerlessness, and shame, but also the desire to obey and the opportunity to prove yourself. To accomplish this, I will take away your phone and the privileges of your day-to-day persona, and enforce the deference and respect that I am owed within my role with punishment if necessary. You may discover you find comfort in dependence on a strong authority figure, or at least become aware of the erotic possibilities of strict control.


Role plays are extensively negotiated beforehand. Once this negotiation is complete you may safe word out of the experience as a whole, but you may not pick and choose which elements of the experience you will submit to. 

Role plays may extend up to 24 hours with an overnight stay. 

All Other Activities

Review my session application for the full range of activities I offer.




I do not engage in AB/DL, brown showers, body worship (other than feet), submitting, or sex.

(Note that I am also not engaging in spitting during the pandemic).


If you inquire about these activities I will assume that you did not take the time to thoroughly review my website and thus consider you an incompatible play partner now and in the future.

Black Thorn
The Black Thorn property is located in the Lake Merritt area of Oakland. Available playspaces include a multi-room Victorian house, a large studio and a cozy attic.
I offer outcall appointments to SF Bay Area hotels at my discretion to returning clients. 
I am available to accompany you to play parties, workshops and other community events, and sometimes sponsor events of my own with my sisters, the Alphas. Note that all events are currently on hold due to the pandemic.
I have no travel plans at this time and am not accepting sessions outside of the SF Bay Area during the pandemic.


Typical sessions range from 1.5 - 3 hours, which allows time for thorough negotiation & unrushed play. Extended/overnight sessions are also available up to 24 hours.
I require 24 hours notice and accept bookings up to 1 month in advance.



A deposit is required for all sessions. It is applied toward your total tribute & is transferable to a future date in the event of rescheduling with at least 24 hours notice. Providing less than 24 hours notice will result in forfeiture of deposit. Deposits can be transferred only once.

Extended/Overnight Sessions

Extended sessions are available in time blocks including:


Half day (5-6 hours)

Full day (10-12 hours)

Overnight (12-18 hours)

Full 24 hours

Sessions include breaks at my discretion; overnight sessions include 8 hours of sleep. 

I most enjoy playing with those who identify as submissive, but also spend time with select fetishists and those who are exploring gender identity or expression. I do not discriminate based on race, sex/gender, age, ability, or religion. As long as you are over 21, respectful, communicative, understand the risks inherent to BDSM and commit to safe and consensual play, I am happy to meet you!
