I AM DOMINA ESMÉ CRANE

YOU MAY CALL ME MISTRESS.


I can still remember the stiff embrace of the first corset I ever laced Myself into. It was the decadence and femininity of the hourglass silhouette that had initially drawn Me to it. As I tightened the laces, the strength of the steel bones seduced Me. I fell in love with the painstaking artistry of the corset's construction and the luxury of wearing something so divine. Most of all, I was captivated by the sense of ritual and discipline it imbued Me with. In that corset I felt powerful for the first time.

Since that day over a dozen years ago, I have indulged My love of costuming by becoming an accomplished seamstress; My passion for power by becoming a Domina, Disciplinarian and Gardener of Kink. Bring Me your fetishes and I will nurture them, encourage their growth and help you to curate your kinkiest self through conscientious discipline and education. While I am based primarily in San Francisco, I also travel occasionally and offer consultations via telephone and correspondence. My San Francisco sessions take place at Maison de la Maîtresse, an exquisitely appointed private space in the heart of the city. 



When I am not padlocking restraints in The Dungeon or disciplining naughty submissives in Mother's Room, I have a variety of interests and hobbies that inform all aspects of My life, including My practice of professional BDSM. As an avid motorcyclist, I appreciate precision engineering and fine design — properties that lend themselves so wonderfully to the intricacies of inescapable bondage. As a lifelong lover of literature, I adore the craft of storytelling and its influence on immersive role play. With nearly two decades of experience as a classical ballet dancer, I possess a fine appreciation for the various ways that the human form can be pushed to its physical limits. My fetish for costumes is a limitless source of personal enjoyment, and an interest I always bring to My practice, whether you seek a Venus in furs or your own radical transformation.

My style is warm and elegant, whether I'm binding a submissive with ropes or a softly spoken command. I believe in compassionate dominance and in guiding individuals toward deeper expressions of their submissive selves through a mutually respectful practice. This ethos is reflected in My graduate studies and academic work around personal growth, healing, and transformation— qualities I bring to each session. If you are seeking a space to explore your submissive self under the firm hand of a bewitching disciplinarian, do consider introducing yourself.

Let's Play


“WE DO NOT GROW ABSOLUTELY, CHRONOLOGICALLY. WE GROW SOMETIMES IN ONE DIMENSION, AND NOT IN ANOTHER; UNEVENLY. WE GROW PARTIALLY. WE ARE RELATIVE. WE ARE MATURE IN ONE REALM, CHILDISH IN ANOTHER. THE PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE MINGLE AND PULL US BACKWARD, FORWARD, OR FIX US IN THE PRESENT. WE ARE MADE UP OF LAYERS, CELLS, CONSTELLATIONS.”

WHICH PARTS OF YOURSELF DO YOU SEEK TO GROW AT LA MAISON?

 

As a Domina, I seek to help My submissives grow in a variety of dimensions. Dominance and submission, when practiced conscientiously, have a wonderful capacity to nurture neglected parts of ourselves. I enjoy many varieties of bondage and discipline— be sure to express your particular areas of interest when sending a submission request.

I feel a special affinity for those who are finding their voices and learning to express their kinky desires. I'm thrilled to encourage others to dig deeper inwardly to develop an increased sense of confidence and acceptance through domination. Like a personal trainer for your super-ego (with a much better wardrobe), I will push you tirelessly toward your best self.

As an Asian American woman, I have received many requests over the years to embody stereotypical race-based roles. I am not interested in sessions involving racial fetishism or superiority. I am interested in sessions with those who appreciate statuesque feminine beauty. A former runway model, I stand 5'10" in My stocking feet and over 6'2" in a pair of stilettos. I wear a 22" corset, a size 6 dress and size 8 shoes. My classic red nails, razor sharp winged eyeliner and plump lacquered lips are inspired by timeless style— equal parts Dianna Vreeland and Dita Von Teese.

I have a soft spot for cross-dressers, sissies, and boys looking to please Me by wearing panties or expressing their inner princesses. La Maison offers a superb wardrobe for these purposes, with or without the incorporation of traditional Bondage and Domination. I offer comprehensive sissy training, cross dressing, feminization and all manner of role playing, both in-person and long-distance.

I am happy to conduct sessions with novices, women and couples as well as sessions involving more than one Mistress. I welcome people of all sexual and gender orientations. A number of frequently asked questions are answered below. Please read them before requesting a session or submitting an inquiry.

F.A.Q.

 

Q: Which types of play DO You enjoy?

A: My interest in BDSM is deeply rooted in the psychological. 

I believe that the power play inherent in Dominance and submission holds the capacity to transform. My goal is to facilitate personal exploration, growth, healing, excitement and humor through bondage and discipline. No two sessions are perfectly alike— I craft each one with the interests and abilities of the submissive in mind.

———

Q: Which services DON'T you offer?

A: Ah, I'm so glad you asked.

I do not tolerate sexualized body worship, nor do I offer girlfriend experiences, knife play or harmful emotional degradation. If you wish to submit yourself to Me, I'll need you and your mental faculties in tip top shape.

I am a BDSM professional and do not offer or imply any sexual services of any kind.

———

Q: When will you be visiting [place that isn't San Francisco]?

A: Soon, I hope. I absolutely adore traveling!

Any upcoming travel plans will be posted on My Travel page below. Be sure to follow Me on Twitter to stay abreast of My travel plans. You may also join My mailing list by checking the appropriate box when requesting a session.

———

Q: Do you do sessions with couples?

A: Yes!

I am honored to work with couples of all gender and sexual orientations to facilitate and evolve their kinky desires. My only requirement is that I speak with both partners prior to booking a couples session. Please mention your interest when you contact Me.

———

Q: Do you do sessions with other Mistresses?

A: Yes!

I am fortunate to have a strong sisterhood of delightfully devious, talented professionals with whom I truly enjoy collaborating, both in San Francisco and abroad. If you are interested in a session with more than one Domina, be sure to mention your interest when you contact Me.

———

Q: Do you do public outings? What about overnight sessions?

A: That depends entirely upon you.

Whether or not I am interested in accompanying you an outing depends entirely upon your sweet submission, impeccable manners and the outing in question. Outings may be social in nature, fetish-related or a bit of both, but keep in mind that I do not engage in public humiliation or harmful emotional degradation either in or out of the dungeon. I only negotiate overnight sessions for those with whom I have established an established professional relationship.

———

Q: Will you wear [specific outfit] for my session?

A: No, but I can assure you that you will be delighted by whatever I choose to wear.

While it pleases Me immensely to tantalize My submissives by dressing to their tastes, I do not take specific wardrobe requests. If you have a fetish for latex, leather, corsets, fur, evening gowns, lace, boots, or the like, please let Me know in your submission request and I will keep your likes in mind. If you wish to see Me in a particular outfit, consider expressing that desire most considerately by asking if you may bring it as a gift.

Speaking of which...

———

Q: May I bring you a gift?

A: Absolutely!

Gifts are always appreciated, but never required. Gift certificates and items from My wish list that contribute to My self-care are always well received. If you would prefer to pick out something more personal, visit the Indulge page below for a list of My favorite brands, non-profit organizations and sizing information.
