Fernando Berlin custom thigh highs

Vinyl Queen in her custom leather thigh high boots from Fernando Berlin.

I am fortunate that my wish list is regularly emptied by my devoted fans. Sometimes a gift is “off list” and is only communicated privately in conversation between me and a slave. Thus, the story of my new boots begins. It all started with a former Pro Domme from San Francisco: Petra Saint.

Petra had a very specific idea about how a Mistress should conduct herself. I remember her telling me that after a Lady had been in business for five years, she shouldn’t have to purchase certain pieces of fetish attire. This was now the responsibility of her slaves and clients. I took this to heart and stubbornly refused to pony up for any new boots or large leather purchases. This technique worked quite well. I have been fortunate to be gifted with everything EXCEPT custom leather ZIP thigh high boots (until now).

A decade ago, another slave and I embarked on trying to find a manufacturer for some lace-up thigh high boots. The situation ended in partial disaster when the pair that arrived were baggy around my ankles. This is such a crucial portion of the boot. I was almost in tears when I tried them on. Yes, I had sent off measurements, but the maker clearly didn’t follow them. Luckily I found a cobbler who was able to modify the boots to fit my ankles, but it felt dirty to do this. It was like they were no longer a pristine pair of footwear. I knew they had been cut and re-sewn due to a foible. There wasn’t another boot maker I could turn to so the search for THE NEXT PAIR was sidelined.

Fast forward to last year and I find myself longing for custom thigh highs again. I have the good fortune of being friends with a Lady in Belgium who is served by a supreme leather fetishist. Who better to ask about leather boot makers in Europe than he? He shared a few names with me and I started researching their reputations.

One of my personal slaves took up the cause of acquiring me the boots. This is a former client who now serves me inside and outside the dungeon. We embarked on getting my measurements accurate, sending off the photos of my legs, and then waiting for the wonderful day when the boots would arrive. The unwrapping happened in late 2014, but I have greedily kept them to myself since then (well sort of). The boots traveled with me to Germany and Belgium in April, as well as DC in May. They have received a thoroughly positive reception. It’s time for me to grace the world with more of a photo than my Easter teaser (see below). Some lucky fetishists were able to taste them as I made my way from Essen to Antwerp and beyond.

I’m simply tickled with their fit and I am already looking to what my next item from Fernando Berlin will be. There are still gaps in my Fetish Bucket List, and I intend to fill them. I highly recommend this manufacturer for their quality, service, and attention to detail.

boots, shoes, and an Easter egg

Vinyl Queen’s favorite boots and shoes in Essen, Germany during the Fetish Weekend.

I don’t often call potential clients out, but I’ve received one too many requests like this as of late, so it’s time for a little bit of education on the subject.

I understand that not every male is submissive. I also know that many fetishists find themselves in a difficult situation because they don’t want to submit, but what they seek is often offered by women who are classified as Dominant. The result is people like me receiving emails for sessions that are incredibly specific and demanding under the auspices of them being “a simple request.” I’m going to break it down for you boys so you can understand my position point by point. Below is the body of the email I received. Mind you, it was sent to a large number of other women as the “undisclosed recipients” marker showed up above my name. THAT is very classy (not) and is a good way to turn me off from the get go. I don’t like being part of your bulk call-out, but I digress:

“I put down simple in the subject because my requests are very simple and straight forward. The person who used to do this for me decided to quit the business and I’ve been out of luck. I am looking for a test session and would like to turn that into a regular thing if it works out.

I am fairly busy man running my business so I’ll get to the point. Here’s what I need:
1 – The session I require is a doormat fantasy session
2 – I like my face to be used as a doormat under large boots
3 – I need black shoe polish or something similar being applied on the soles of the boots so that every inch of my face is black after the session is over
4 – I like my mouth/lips to be wiped on heavily
5 – Finally, I would like a small amount of tooth paste to be put on my teeth and I need the soles of the boots to be used as tooth brush cleaning my teeth with the
tooth paste

If you are the right person for this, please write back to me and let me know that you understand all the points above and have no issues with any of that. If you have questions about these points, ask away.

Whatever your rate is, I’ll be able to pay.
Please let me know.”

1. So this guy’s provider (I’m using that word since I don’t know what her classification is as a sex worker, and yes we are ALL sex workers when it comes down to the nitty gritty) has retired and now he doesn’t have anyone to literally fill her shoes. What most likely happened is they started off with a different version of this session that revolved around boot trampling. He figured out he was really into face-centric boot play and things evolved to their current state. My advice: Don’t get this specific in your requests guys. You aren’t leaving any creativity on my part. This is what we call “SCRIPTING.” Your little male brain doesn’t see the problem with it. I do. I’m not your waitress. I’m not here to cater an order to you. We need to meet half way and this session sounds like it’s all about you and nothing about my happiness (that just sort of matters).

2. Don’t tell me how busy you are. I assume EVERYONE is busy in this day and age. Am I supposed to give you a gold star because of this? Do you think that I will respect you more because you run your own business? If anything I think you’re pathetic for needing to tell me about this fact. Your ego is leading the way and you want me to recognize your accomplishments. Yawn…Once again, once you walk through my door I could care less what you have DONE and it’s all about what you WILL DO FOR ME.

3. There is too much about YOUR NEED. Wrong. I am the one who says I NEED. I know. You’re not submissive so you forget about this and you just get into laundry list mode. Even so, strike that word from your session negotiation vocabulary. “I would like it if” is a much better phrase to enter into a discussion about your interests. Ultimately I will decide what you need. I am the trained professional here.

4. Once we get to the third point, all aspects of simplicity have left the building. What makes you think that I want black shoe polish ON THE BOTTOMS OF MY BOOTS? This sounds messy and a real pain to clean up post-session. The polish won’t stay on the bottoms of my boots, it will migrate elsewhere on the footwear, and I’ll have to make sure it doesn’t get on my flooring. There will need to be towels (which will be ruined after that crap gets on there), and more clean up than usual. Speaking of clean up, you will need to mess up my shower afterwards attempting to remove all of the polish on your face. Great. More work for me. More ruined towels…Also, this whole “every inch of my face is  black” wording is a harbinger of trouble. I can see it now: woman attempts to accommodate this request, but a small patch is NOT covered. Guy sees this and flips out and accuses woman of not doing a good enough job. Leaves her a lousy review and stalks her by sending her nasty emails about how terrible she is. No thank you. I don’t need the potential for that kind of aggravation in my life.

5. The whole toothpaste situation. Once again, I don’t want toothpaste on the bottoms of my boots. This just sounds like more of a sticky mess and problematic clean up.

6. No, you’re not going to pay whatever my rate is. Ultimately you foot guys are cheap and whine incessantly about money. Almost twenty years in this business has taught me that. I don’t believe this statement you’ve made whatsoever.

So now you boys are saying to yourselves, “Thanks for tearing this guy’s request up. You’ve told us what NOT to do. Can you at least tell us what we SHOULD do? You betcha:

If your provider has retired and you grew into an incredibly specific scenario with her, keep in mind that you are NEVER going to be able to 100% recapture what you had together. That’s just the way life goes. If you try to do the same sessions with someone else, you will only see what the current Lady isn’t doing correctly instead of what she IS doing accurately. It becomes a nitpicking scenario that is devoid of joy because “you just want her to get it right.” Instead, when you contact someone new, frame your interests in broad terms. For the guy in this email: “I am into a doormat type fantasy. The provider I saw for x years has retired and I’m looking to establish a relationship with someone knew. I’d like to discuss my fantasy with you and see if we can meet on common ground based on our mutual interests.” Listing every single aspect that you’d like to happen is a recipe for dissatisfaction for both parties. It also means that many of the more experienced Ladies will file your email in the trash immediately.

If you have specific clothing/shoe requests that are super important to your fantasy, then offer to procure them for said Lady. You can inquire as to whether or not she possesses such items, but if not, it’s on you to make props happen.

In closing, keep your initial email requests simple. Understand that I require respect when being contacted. If you’re not submissive, then let me know. I can work with you, but only if I feel like you’re meeting me halfway.

patent leather pumps with stockings

Fan favorite patent leather pumps

Some of the items in my fetish wardrobe are more popular than others. The shoes pictured in this post are by far the most discussed accessory in my possession. I’d like to address their origin as well as their manufacturer so that I can reference my blog when the question arises in the future.

These patent leather pumps were a gift from a long-time fetishist I know. He decided that I simply MUST have a proper pair of pointy-toed high heels. He set out to acquire them for me, but it was no easy task to accomplish. He kept me abreast of the ordering process as time passed. The delays were one after another. At one point, a utility bill dispute threatened power to the factory where the shoes were being made. Imagine that! At this point in my career I’m not surprised as it doesn’t seem like ANYTHING you purchase in the fetish world arrives on time and without discord. Well, anything that’s unique and that you really desire, as opposed to banal good that are everywhere.

The shoes finally arrived and I was thrilled. I wear them in session on a regular basis, and they’ve done their time on the street as well. Unfortunately they are no longer available for purchase. The shop they came from was Leatherworks UK. Here is a link to their description on another site: http://www.shoebidoo.com/174-Leatherworks-UK-CLOSED-DOWN/View-details. I no longer take these shoes out on the street as I want to preserve them for as long as possible. Luckily I’ve found another manufacturer that constructs patent leather heels with a pointy toe, but that is a topic for another blog post.

I am the hostess of the San Francisco Footnight foot parties. This position puts me at the forefront of fielding complaints from foot lovers on a regular basis. I have to hear exactly why the parties aren’t this or that, and how I could do better. Everyone’s a critic within the foot fetish community. I’ve learned to take it in stride (no pun intended), and focus on what works when organizing events. This brings me to my latest gripe: Foot models and their bullshit excuses for last-minute cancellations.

I’ve reached the tipping point with this crap folks. Rather than waste my time individually admonishing you people (yes, I said you people), I’m taking my feelings public. It’s time that the guests and potential new foot models find out what the real story is behind organizing a foot party. I will do my best to keep things general, but I will most likely end up getting very specific. If you’re reading this and feel like I’m calling you–GOOD. Maybe you’ll understand the gravity of the situation your lack of reliability is causing. Maybe you’ll finally get it through that thick, albeit, pretty little skull of yours that your reputation is your word. Without that, you’re nothing in my book.

  1. Let’s learn some reading comprehension ladies! When the subject line of the email you receive says, FOOT PARTY IN “insert city name here,” read the name of the location and THEN figure out if you can travel to it. Subject lines are there for a reason. Imagine that? They are present to communicate vital information that usually gets glossed over within the body of the email. If you are a big baby and can’t possible drive yourself beyond a very tiny radius (OMG I HAVE TO DRIVE 20 MILES I THINK I’M GOING TO DIE), then make sure to inquire at the time you agree to attend as to whether or not the city of the event is within your comfort zone. We are so spoiled in the Bay Area. It’s like we need wooden boats to cross the Bay or something. If you add fifteen miles to crossing the Bay Bridge, then it’s like asking someone to circumvent the globe. I get it. You ladies are delicate flowers that can’t spend a lot of time in cars. Thus, you need to double and triple check that the city of the event is somewhere you can manage in your carriage. Yeah yeah, you  might not possess a worthy carriage and so that precludes you from more suburban destinations. I expect this so I purposely leave your group out of certain invites.
  2. Canceling on the same day of the event is bullshit. I guess no one fully understands how our model list works. It is based mainly on attempting to maintain a specific ratio of models to guests. Too many models, and we have disgruntled cats, I mean models, standing around looking sullen. Too few models and I get grumpy guests bitching to me about the lack of women there to worship. Mind you, I DO plan for these last minute cancellations since it seems that THEY ALWAYS HAPPEN LIKE CLOCKWORK. What really blows is when, despite having my back up models in place, I still end up short-handed. What gets me infuriated is when the excuses come in, and I know they are just complete baloney. If you “get sick” consistently before the parties, and you tell me this via email–I think you’re lying after the second time around. I have a news flash: if you are really ill, you’ll CALL ME and either speak to me in person or leave me a voice mail so I can at least hear it in your voice. Please put that type of effort into your lie, I mean excuse,  if you’re going to say you’re sick. Then are the all the boyfriend reasons. “My boyfriend said I can’t go.” “My boyfriend found out I’m a foot model.” The best one of this category is when “the boyfriend” emails me and tells me to take the model off the list because he doesn’t approve. IS THIS 1955???? What is WRONG with you ladies? We have all dated jerks, but if you keep doing it, then you need to examine your life. Why are you letting this man control your activities? If you’re not being honest with him, then don’t bring me into your bullshit relationship. When you use boyfriend excuses at 7:03 pm (party starts at 7 pm mind you), I see red. To sum things up, whatever excuse you tell me on the day of the party, I will think it isn’t real and that you’re unreliable. I will ban you from the next two parties, and most likely never request that you attend in the future. I don’t care how hot you are or how great your feet look. You’re not worth this organization’s time.
  3. Not showing up on time is inexcusable. EVERYONE is usually late to the parties. This includes guests and models. For the guests, it’s their dime so they show up when they are able. The models are a different story. I give a certain amount of leeway for traffic, or when there is a specific reason for tardiness. I expect most of the models to have figured out the finer points of Bay Area road congestion by now. There is 511.org as well as various apps (waze is one), for finding out a pretty accurate time of arrival to your destination based on current conditions. Not sure why everyone doesn’t use them, but I guess the “internets” is still a very scary place for some…
  4. No call, no show. Then there’s that…It means that I don’t receive any type of warning/excuse about not showing up. They are just magically absent. Unfortunately it’s usually the best-looking and most in-demand models who pull this crap. It happens after their second or third party. If you have ever wondered why we don’t have more blondes at the foot parties, this is why. EVERY SINGLE hot blonde foot model has ended up becoming unreliable after her third party. I currently only have one blonde model that I can count on–and she is amazing. I’m still stunned that she continues to show up, and even brings amazing friends with her.

This isn’t a complete list of what I have to deal with in the run up to a foot party, but it touches on the most irksome points. I’m hoping that my rant educates potential foot model applicants as to what NOT to do. Just because you’re pretty ladies, doesn’t mean you can get away with being unreliable!

Oh No: The P Word!!!

I engage in something that I only talk about when asked. It’s been a bit of a taboo subject but now I think it should come out in the open. I like wearing pantyhose. I realize that the nylon fetishists who follow me will be aghast at such an admission. They already know my feelings about fully-fashioned stockings and should feel secure knowing I have no intent to abandon wearing them any time soon. What I DO intend to do is wear pantyhose more.

Pantyhose have an extremely bad rap. I view them as the Pit Bulls of the leg wear world. They are perfectly nice once you get to know them, but your first reaction is usually revulsion. Pantyhose are associated with utility. Women MUST wear them in work places that dictate the legs need to be covered. Pantyhose aren’t really a choice for many. When you have to don something everyday, it tends to lose it’s sexiness. If you have to purchase an item in mass quantities due to a lack of durability, then you certainly won’t take the time to seek out a higher quality line since that would seem a waste.

I am in the fortunate position of only wearing pantyhose when I choose to. I must admit that I had a very negative reaction the first time I was asked to wear them for a client. This was due in no small part to the brand being L’Eggs. These are really the bottom of the barrel pantyhose. Upon further research I was able to narrow down that my client enjoyed the color and shine of pantyhose. After discovering such information, I made the leap to higher quality leg wear and it was a HUGE upgrade. Lower quality pantyhose are uncomfortable to wear, but the better brands are a delight. The material is also MUCH softer and actually feels good on the leg. Then we have to discuss HOW they make your legs look. A nice pair of pantyhose are like makeup for the legs. Any slight imperfections magically go away and all you are left with is the shape. Add some shine to it and you have pillars of worship.

Now when I mention shine, I’m not referring to the type of hose that figure skaters wear. Those are a bit over the top. No, I’m takling about just enough shine that a softer material imbues into the legwear.

So the bottom line is if you enjoy pantyhose in any capacity, let me know. I have worn them for looks, for worship, and for activities such as trampling, etc. Stockingstore.com has a great selection. Right now I’m in love with the Aristoc brand. Their Ultra Shine variety is really tip top in my opinion. I’d be interested in hearing about any other brands that have the qualities I’ve described. Feel free to contact me or comment with input.

SF Foot Party Recap

In case you didn’t hear the news, I was named the new hostess of the San Francisco Foot Parties back in June of this year. It was a great honor for me to be able to take over such a fabulous event, but I was also nervous at the thought of taking over the helm. Well I am happy to report that the event we had last week exceeded my expectations on ALL fronts. We had more guests than I had anticipated, more girls, and everyone looked stunning. The Ladies really outdid themselves with attention to detail via their outfits and shoe choices! I want to thank my “crew” for all of their help before, during, and after the party: Eric, Leeta, Squonk, and Tom. You guys (and girl) made everything run so smoothly that all I had to do was be myself. I’m looking forward to next time already! There are many others who made the night special and safe. I won’t mention you specifically, but you know who you are. Of course, a big “shout out” goes to Steve Savage for making it all possible by starting the foot parties in the first place.

What else could make a great day even better? How about LATEX? Yes, my ever expanding collection has been added to by the lowly squonk. My chauffeur arrived bearing the gift of a latex nurse’s outfit, complete with stethoscope. I guess flu season won’t be so miserable after all now will it? Make sure to get your “vaccinations” early–and often by Nurse VQ. I promise that it will only hurt–A LOT! He he.

Schedule Update: I won’t be available for sessions from this Thursday until after September 20th. I’m making my annual trek to Europe on September 5th and will be spending time in Sweden and The Netherlands. I will be sure to update here when I return, or possibly while I’m traveling–if I can find a spare moment. Also, I’m heading to Berlin for the Venus Fair in the middle of October. Europe twice in two months? Yes, those would be my plans.

Most of my trips to LA are lots of fun, but this last one just couldn’t be beat. I won the Footnight Model of the Year award and I can’t begin to describe how good it feels.

Leata Lee–For showing me that women can enjoy my feet too!

squonk–For all the rides and rooms and massages during our LA journeys. Thanks for contributing to my shoe collection too!

Ron in the East Bay–for your tickly mustache and encouragement during our car talks.

Mike in Vegas–for the fun times at the LA Parties and our horse discussions.

Steven S–For the way you say, “Goddess! Majesty”

Mr T–For teaching me how to move my feet FAST all those years ago at the Y!

Nail5us–For just being you!

Dave in Nawlins–For your diligence

René in Amsterdam–For showing me that rubber stockings are great for trampling!

Nico in Germany–For being such a good slave.

Nick in Italy–For making sure that my visits to Europe are always enjoyable.

And last but not least, to my personal foot slave who has been a constant source of encouragement. The road to self-improvement wouldn’t have been so easy without you telling me I could always do better!

If you weren’t mentioned in this list, then you mean nothing to me and you should go slit your wrists–NOT. The folks who have been part of the Foot Party process should know who they are and that I am thankful to everyone who helped out in my journey to this title. I am only human and my memory can never be 100% complete :).
