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. 

You can sign up for class here: bit.ly/interlockingsystems

If you'd like to inquire about receiving or funding a scholarship, pls Inquire via email: info@darkscience.co.

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?

Hypnotic Propaganda. 1 by OSD.

imbalance of power.gif

For a few months, I've been quietly searing minds. I still prefer to stay outside of the "scene" elements of financial domination and fetish, my business models are non-standard and so there's little upside in "competing" categorically. But my clip stores still draw viewers such that I end up on top lists...oh 

Of course, I can always have more money, from any source. So I can't say it's not pleasing to see. 

I've produced about 111 clips in the past year or so. With so much unrest in the world, having an artistic outlet has been therapeutic. Many of these releases are uniquely terrifying, blurring the lines of fantasy and reality. True mind fuck. Some fall into more established genres, safer, if that's a thing...

Sales have been steadily increasing, particularly on PSYCHOKINK.com (IWC) where I have the best cut of sales and tributes. Some of my content is also available on NITEFLIRT and CLIPS4SALE

Top Sellers by month so far...


five dollar financial domination.gif


Because I know that the internet is teeming with cheap perverts, both anecdote and analysis tells me that baiting is an effective strategy. This clip sold almost 100 copies, so by far the highest in number. But what's more important is that it triggered several weeks-long binges in unwitting would-be addicts who thought they'd just drool over a cheap clip of my legs in pantyhose. 

Oops. 

By dollar amount, WEAPON OF CHOICE - HYPNO POV 

I don't care what your substance is. I don't care if it's just me. I think we both know it's me. 

Honestly, don't buy this. It will destroy you. Not only is it a aesthetic masterpiece. But my words are wound so tightly that you will put it on repeat and brainwash yourself into oblivion. Your life will never be the same after you watch this and you'll only have yourself to blame. It's expensive because it's too intense to be left out like a toy. You're my toy. Aren't you? Good boy. You're a very good boy. 

 

FEBRUARY - FINDOM GFE

0b1c13eca418e5a47d0c74d29108265c.gif

Near and dear to my heart, just a little Valentine's day romp about a high-end call girl setting you up and turning you into her little bitch, just like you've always secretly dreamt of. 

MARCH - Pussy is Not For You

pussy denial.gif

Just because society conditioned you to think every man deserves sex doesn't mean it's true. Pussy is not for you. You know it. I know it. So we might as well enjoy it. 

Obviously I enjoy locking men up in chastity, whether mental or material. Keeping you out of the trouble that comes with having no control over your cock is a luxury service and should be compensated as such. You're welcome.

APRIL - BLACK WIDOW BRAINWASH

blackwidow brainwash.gif

It's been hard lately for you. You read every clip description. You can feel the pressure building. I know the patterns, too. 

Nothing about you is new to me. I've lived this cycle a thousand times. So when you finally break down and come to me ready to hear about what's happening to you, you should know that I have been expecting you. I designed it that way. 

And as you sit beneath me now, you notice you are calm. If giving in a little seems to relieve, imagine what else I could make you believe.

This is a classic, dark induction. 

MAY - WOUND UP FOR ME. TRANCE POV. 

You understand implicitly that every word I write is engineered to one end: To control you. You can feel that I've done something to you, even just by reading these descriptions. You know the only way to save yourself is to run...but you can't move. Did I slip you something? Would I even need to?

To reiterate your captivity, I have a single ribbon. I've bound you so tightly that no restraint is needed. 

This series was filmed in a haunted hotel in New England. The creepiness is palpable. 

JUNE - EXPLOITS:  MIND CONTROL POV

bardot smith exploits.gif

The more I let you see, the more hopeless you get for me. 

Filmed in a high-rise in Soho, I explain to you more about what you've been feeling and why I'm doing this to you. 

New York City subs who may remember me well....or simply with reverence...will be pleased to learn about my return to the city that made me. All inquiries for appointments or offers of service will be received with tribute, as usual, so long as they are submitted respectfully.


These are all essentials for a devoted admirer to own. Though obviously, the most dedicated supplicants own all of my art works. I plan on escalating the rest of the year. I've been ghost producing for years now, behind the scenes of this stunning, lucrative, and nearly-opaque cover (thanks sex work stigma). I see no reason to relent now. 

Being indirect has never yielded results. If you've been dying to meet me (some of you for years), I will be in Los Angeles from July 14-20. Be a big boy and say hello. 

xx, Ms Smith

Photographic Evidence. Los Angeles. by OSD.

I've been updating less, on the phone less, taking fewer appointments. I have spent most of the winter in Boston where I have a core of loyalists and business to attend to. 

However. I did get to the west coast briefly where I met an old friend and talented photographer, Eric A. Reid. We spent a lazy afternoon shooting before heading out in Hollywood for the evening. 

We have collaborated in the past and 2015 will bring more developments from this artistic partnership. 

A voyeuristic sliver of the day...

A reminder of your general unworthiness...and everything that I am.

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.

Dominant vs. Dominate - The Vocabulary of Identity by OSD.

Dominant is a status. Dominate is an action.

With the proliferation of the underworld thanks to the internet, themes emerge. And with themes come assumptions and misconception. The number of individuals who are touched in some way by fetishism and expressions of alternate sexual identity is rising. While expansion is a beautiful thing, it also ( by definition) introduces complexity to a system. In an effort to stem the inevitable tide of entropy, I offer my perspective on popular points of confusion. 

This is the vocabulary of identity. 


Dominance. 

Some of the most egregious misconceptions center on the concept of dominance. There are no hard and fast rules for what contributes to the presence of a FemDom. Dominance sits at the nexus of her carriage and her attributes. How she expresses her value to the world. 

Dominance is also not inherently linked to sadism, just as not all submissives are inherently masochistic. These status identities are merely a reflection of the presence and natural proclivities of the individual. 

 In essence, dominance is a state of being; it is not an act. 

Dominate / Domination.

Domination is more performative. There are, of course, multiple ways to approach this task, from traditional bondage, interrogation and mind control, sensuality, etc. Its efficacy depends on the charisma and confidence of the domme, naturally. 

A domme may use subtle methods of domination in the world at large, but the idea that a domme is constantly marauding and domineering is a complete misconception. In my own opinion, bratty and manipulative behavior is a sign of insecurity, rather than dominance. I enjoy the natural interplay of energy more than scenes, games, etc.

Besides tangles are best enjoyed consensually, individually, privately. Though, my penchant for efficiency does make me a terrifyingly deserving rinser for those so inclined. (And, if that's you, you know it's only a matter of time, darling. I will see you soon.)

The dynamics at play in the microcosm are merely a distillation of the unspoken dynamics apparent in society at large. 

In the world, you would find me relatively mysterious, with calm reserve. A beautiful and dynamic woman, poised and confident. I choose to share My presence and fetishism with individuals who are like-minded.  

Of course, opening up your presence to a broader environment requires aggression in term-setting. My attitude reflects the strictness of my standards. My insight and leadership are reserved for those who avail themselves to it through demonstrated understanding and respect.

I choose to capitalize my time and attention as a reflection of the dynamics of supply and demand. It's my prerogative to do so in whatever manner makes sense for the individual and engagement. How you are greeted is a function of your energy, and your approach. Do you now understand?

Concisely, I spin a web. 

I will not tell you where the snares lie, only that they exist. Engineered and executed masterfully. And, if this resonates, it is no accident.  

xo, Bardot.

American Mistress. by OSD.

You may know me. I am am a Mistress. Sovereign.

And, despite pageantry and many overwrought notions and confusions, what this means is that I belong to no man and I rest in no city. 

Having navigated a course through some of the grittiest male-dominated environments, I have run the risk of sacrificing femininity in order to be considered viable professionally. In these worlds, being attractive is a double-edged blade. Leverage attraction and walk the line between objectification and advantage. Playing down attraction has its own set of risks, and conveys less upside.

I don't play games that i can't win. 

Earlier in my career, My natural sexual and social dominance frequently disarmed (or upset) my male superiors. I began my career in the pre-crash private equity landscape. The Wild West.

The men whom I worked with could be categorized in two ways: Brilliant and misunderstood alpha males. And the others slightly more bitter drones, the betas, who would never achieve the pinnacle of success in the industry. They lacked that je ne sais quoi. The distinctions were obvious to Me, even as a 22 year-old, and they would be to anyone with passing interest in power dynamics.  

Representing not only intellectual force, but having the distinct advantage of sexual magnetism, I was a direct threat to the latter category. And a thrill to the former. 

I enjoyed my unspoken role as a crowbar. I grew into My social position.

Front row seats to the American Financial Apocalypse and a World Class education in owning the minds of men. In the proverbial American West, there are no rules. The one Law is "Do what must be done." There is no refuge for the weak. 

As I became more experienced in my Power, I naturally moved into more esoteric chains of industry where my skills are properly leveraged. It's only natural that I have been tasked with carving out a completely singular niche. My natural abilities and evident status have rendered it impossible for Me to live a prescribed life.

I live a freedom not available or fathomable to most. I hold the key to your most profound fantasies and your most-concealed fears. But, I enjoy the company of men only on My own terms. The most-deserving relish their role in My life as servants, benefactors, or fellow wolves with which to run.

My Continuous Dynamic Equilibrium. 

I straddle the line between the demimonde and the mainstream world on a daily basis. It's part of what creates a sizzling edge to all of my interactions with men. It's part of what gives me perspective to both sides of the table (if you will). For this reason, I specialize in discrete, bespoke arrangements. 

The missing element in your existence. The edge. Nature.

Order out of Chaos. 


Stunning, isn't it?

Alpha Status - The Vocabulary of Identity by OSD.

Humans are social creatures. But how you see yourself with respect to the pack makes all the difference. 

What is the nature of the Alpha? 


With the proliferation of the underworld thanks to the internet, themes emerge. And with themes come assumptions and misconception. The number of individuals who are touched in some way by fetishism and expressions of alternate sexual identity is rising. While expansion is is a beautiful thing, it also ( by definition) introduces complexity to a system. In an effort to stem the inevitable tide of entropy, I offer my perspective on popular points of confusion. 

This is the vocabulary of identity. 


Despite mainstream assertions, Society will never be classless. Stratification is real, acknowledged or not.

Previous to the advent of the web, it was easier to see the contours of classes, while seeing into them was a more difficult task. Increased transparency at the hands of omnipresent media has created the illusion of a more flattened society. Where the platforms and infrastructure necessary to propagate ideas were once more tightly held by the ruling class, social media and the relative cheapness of web development have drastically lowered the barrier of entry for individuals with social purpose or agenda.

But this is far from equivalent to leveling the playing field.  The effects are double-edged: 

  • Channels open to Ideas that would previously have little to no chance of reaching public consciousness, and
  • Increased clutter and conceptual replica. 

The arm swings both ways. It's no more evident in an arena where there's money to be made and won such as financial domination. As the fetish itself breaches mainstream consciousness, the influx of interest and participation can be understood with a simple search on twitter for #findom. 

The array of results will fall into several categories. Established practitioners adapting their presences to the web, new entrants focusing on carving niches for themselves, and a herd of replicas in their likeness. In a game where individuality makes all the difference, the use of vocabulary and syntax in communication can be particularly useful as a divining rod. 

Today, the term Alpha. 

To conflate "dominance" with "alpha" status is tempting. At face value, the share some similarities. However, in both theory and practical application, they are independent axes. 

The axis dominant/submissive requires relationship to be defined. While alpha/beta status is an identifier that can be applied to individuals themselves.

A beta individual can be dominant in relation to other betas, for example. While one may be categorically dominant or submissive, the exercise of that status does not manifest completely except in relation to the complement.

The axis Alpha/beta, however, is status-independent. In terms of social organization, an Alpha will default to lead over betas, whether the betas identify as dominant or submissive. Their power is intrinsic and a result of an internal locus of control. Their self-concept is not inspired by relation to others. Therefore, the mark of an Alpha is independence and self-mastery. 

In the social context, both males and females can be alpha. Though the natural alpha female is comparatively rare and behaves differently than her male counterpart, leveraging a different array of skills and talents.  

Alphas are naturally designed to sit atop the social hierarchy due to the strength inherent in their presence. 

Self-mastery on the Order of the Alpha is formidable. For that reason, interacting with an alpha can be a thrilling and mind-expanding experience. You will see that the most elite circles are occupied almost exclusively by natural Alphas. This is true across industry and interest, which is why you will see social (and sexual) overlap at the top. 

The clarity of Mind that comes from inner peace and confidence gives them the perception to navigate any circumstance. For this reason, they will always find their way to the forefront of their chosen fields and social groupings. They are unstoppable. 

Regardless of sexual or relationship proclivities -- which are frankly more fluid in this echelon -- Alphas run society. And you were wondering how it could be so simple for me to penetrate your mind? We are wolves, yet. 

So despite the increased insistence that we live in a classless society, increased transparency has only clarified the true Nature of the stratifications. It was never about wealth and power. Though those naturally follow social dominance. (To the Victor, goes the Spoils.) Instead...

Alpha status has always and will forever be a matter of mastery. 

Now. bow down.

Your Undoing. by OSD.

You are...shaking. A loop plays over in your mind. Again... again... again...

Nerves? Exhilaration? Or the volatile reaction to my presence searing the edges of your consciousness? You never saw it coming.  

All the minute forces, the sticky glue that previously sustained your world disintegrating into the void. There is nothing to be done.

Your unraveling is inescapable. It's only just begun. The initiation is swift. Your trajectory is inevitable.

When I think of how your mind spins, the corners of my lips turn up. First one. Then the other.

Poor little creature. Welcome to your undoing. 

 

Two can play this game. 
xo, Bardot.
