Vintage Dominatrix Photos

START

While the dominatrix has existed since ancient times, the leather and latex-clad image that comes to mind didn’t develop until the 20th century. As the women who assumed the sexually dominant role have largely operated in discretion, there is a limited visual history of dominatrices. The fashion staples of these women, also called mistresses, were established in the early 1900s as pin-up photography and erotic illustrations began to circulate. From cat suits to kinky boots, the dominatrix became a sexually liberated figure supported by an erotic wardrobe consisting of bustiers, fishnets, and other traditional lingerie pieces, boosted by fetish-friendly leather accessories and PVC heels. While they have become an influence on popular culture, with the popularity of Bettie Page and fictional figures such as Catwoman, dominatrix-inspired fashion still skirts the line between trendy and taboo. Click through the gallery to see how dominatrices dressed in the 20th century.
