9780988230200: Playing Darlene: The True Double Life of a Public School Teacher & Professional Dominatrix

In this eye-opening true story, one woman recounts the double life she led working in two very different professions...one revered and the other reviled. Darlene spent over twenty years being thought of as a well-mannered teacher in a Southern California public school district, but her colleagues and students would have never imagined that for eighteen of those years she also worked as a professional dominatrix in a dungeon. “Playing Darlene” lets the reader take a peek into the mysterious lives of professionals in the sex industry and some of the jaw-dropping encounters she had with the thousands of clients whose fantasies she helped come true. With everything from roleplaying a shopaholic wife being spanked by her husband to wrapping up a muscular cross-dressing client in plastic and watching him wiggle, Darlene helped men realize their most secret desires...while she wasn’t grading school papers on her breaks. Darlene's true stories of balancing her two different personas are frequently shocking, at times hilarious, and occasionally touching, but at the heart of the story is a woman on a personal journey not only to reconcile with her past, but also to discover the full potential of her own sexuality. "It’s all entertainingly laid out in Playing Darlene: The True Double Life of a Public School Teacher and Professional Dominatrix, a 109-page book that will no doubt benefit from the current appetite for all things Fifty Shades of Grey-related. And in this case, all the more intriguing because it is gender-reversed and purportedly all true."- Richard Horgan, Media Bistro "Playing Darlene is a must read if you are going to write about the lifestyle. It will take you beyond the stereotypical scene and introduce you to characters and situations that you likely have never encountered before unless you have been there." - Erzabeth's Enchantments "This book is about more than just a school teacher living a double life, this is about one woman's journey to self-discovery and emotional healing."- Mommysreading.com
