As some of you know, California is my favorite state that I don't live in. 

I'll be there next week July 14-20.

It's largely a business development trip, with some filming/appointments, AND some relaxation planned. I'll be taking meetings with some people in the cannabis x tech space, terrorizing some local supplicants, hiking in the sun, and eating all the food. 

At this point, my schedule is nearly complete, but I still have some time to spend Sunday or Thursday evening. I especially have time to trips to the dispensary and/or extravagant shopping for lingerie, fetish gear, or whatever else I decide that day. Plus, a rare outside shot at convincing me to have brunch with you somewhere in or around Santa Cruz on Sunday the 22nd. You can inquire about an appointment here

On Wednesday, July 18, I will be taking over the iWANTCLIPS Snapchat account for the day. This is an opportunity for you to see some of my day, possibly interact with me directly, and of course, to be inspired to send me all of my money. <3 Look for an official announcement on their channel and on my new twitter account, @iconoclastiae. You can access my IWC store directly through iWantBardotSmith.com

Speaking of clips, I am in the midst of releasing a series of clips designed to be consumed together, a mental binding sequence. Several short- and mid-length clips designed to open your mind and reinforce your own inclinations and desires.

But there's always a catch, isn't there?

I have about 20 clips queued at this point, and between planning for LA and losing my main twitter & a google index page in one week, I've not had time to process them. An opportunity for you to get caught up on the...uh...material...while you wait. 

Still need a design done for my new Niteflirt & to update my C4S. $end Motivation$.


Finally, I'll be teaching the 4th section of INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX with Lauren Chief Elk. The class will be held online on *TUESDAY* July 17th @ 9pm EST. We are using a Pay-what-you-wish policy w a minimum tuition of $12. We use any overages to fund scholarship spots for students and people with low-income, as well as to fund admin help to produce this class more frequently.

By the way, my cell phone is on 24/7....it's just that it might at times require its own budget line item. You understand. <3

Alright, kids. What do you have for me? 

Xx, Smith.

Brave Enough to Change the Worlds of Business & Sex by OSD.

 I was recently A guest poster for MAKE LOVE NOT PORN.

headed by Cindy Gallop and curated by her Madam Curator, Sarah Beall. 

I chose to focus on the business of the sex industry and how my work here intersects with the financial, technological, and social issues at play.  


An excerpt: 

basically.jpg
I am an analyst turned hustler, and a…Mistress. My work presides at the intersection of financial technology, psychology, behavioral economics…and, the dark pool of the adult industry. I am the proprietress of BardotSmith.com and Mistres.se, a think tank and advisory firm for the intersection of adult industry and financial technology.
At the beginning of operating this enterprise, I chose to embody the ideals of feminine power at all levels of my existence, up to and including my business model. In effect, reversing the concepts of supply and demand in the adult industry to challenge the notion that women who work in any type of “adult” context are only able to operate as a result of male desire, and therefore subject to male power hierarchies, even within the industry.
From the outset, I adopted a unique strategy.

To read the rest of my thoughts on #SEXTECH and the business of KINK, FETISH, and FINANCE, read the full article on their blog. 

If you're not familiar with the MLNP project, it is worthy of the investment of time. Female-powered and innovative, challenging old world views of power, sex, and capital...Just how I like it. 

xo, Bardot.
