VILLA DOMME 2020
Villa Domme is a place where students come annually from around the world - to be taught by renowned Dominatrix author and archaeologist / historian Anne O Nomis (Author of 'The History & Arts of the Dominatrix'), to play, explore and socialize amongst like-minded people in a unique setting.
For 2020, Villa Domme is being held in a 17th Century villa around 35 mins drive from Verona, Italy. The villa has 8 large bedrooms and 8 bathrooms. A nearby building within the property serves as "sub quarters" to accommodate submissives attending, a short walk from the main villa.
The course is unique in the world, and attendance limited to 16 people. Last year's attendees - Mistresses and subs - came from the USA, UK, Canada, Netherlands, Denmark, Germany, Hong Kong and Australia to attend.
Domina Mystic Muse Course - 7 days or 9.5 day option (for those taking Dominatrix Foundation course)
Running 3rd / 6th June until the 13th June, 2020
Anne’s course attracts both newcomers, lifestylers and professional Dominatrices, with many attendees returning year-upon-year.
While this is wonderful and flattering for Anne, that people want to keep coming back, it was proving a challenge to keep things exciting for returning students WHILE ALSO covering the basics for newbie Mistresses and aspiring pro-Dommes.
Domination Foundation Course: 3rd - 5th June 2020
For 2020, Anne is offering a 2.5 day supplementary intensive ‘Domination Foundation’ course on the front end of Villa Domme, from 3rd - 5th June. Aimed at newcomers, this will cover: BDSM, scene negotiation, ascertaining interests, consent, medical conditions and risk mitigation, checking-in, sub-drop and aftercare. As well as an introduction to the Seven Realm Arts of the Dominatrix, expanding on the framework formulated in her book. Taking in the Dominatrix stepping into power and elevation, lowering the submissive, corporal punishment, sensory deprivation, cross-dressing, fetishes and the like. It covers the full spectrum of Domination activities over a 2.5 day intensive.
(Those with experience or returning who wish to come early and “dip-in and dip-out” are also welcome to do so.)
Domina Mystic Muse Course - 6th - 13th June 2020
The main course this year is themed ‘Domina Mystic Muse’. The content for 2020 has been pared back to go deeper into special interest material, as well as allowing for social time and free play. It covers Anti-Houdini entrapment with layering-effect for enhanced captivity (and optional hoods for head-trip effect), Pompeii techniques (based on evidence from Roman sources and art, with sorcery included), ‘Vagina Dentura’ operation effects, and Disciplinarian FemDom practices from teacher to consequence executioner (from birching to tawses, martinets to canes).
For the professionals attending, there is also a class on Erotic Entrepreneurship - history and projected future, examining the way in which women operated in the taboo occupation practising Dominant arts. It will cover constructed image identity and marketing, a discussion of generalization versus specialization (pros and cons), cultural specificity of fetishes and markets, and Dominance in the internet era.
In the evenings we dress up for fun-themed evenings of ‘Sausages and Skin’ (latex), ‘Velvet & Lace’ and a ‘Night of the Huntress’. The highlight evening is a Bacchanalian with women-led mystical rites and hedonism taking inspiration from ancient Roman tradition.
There is a day trip arranged by Anne mid-week trip, which will be announced shortly.
Each morning of the trip, there will be available for use - yoga and pilates mats, and a guide to local hikes and jogging for those keen to stay active. (Equally sleep-ins encouraged.)
Food is prepared and cooked this year 2020 by a dedicated chef-in-residence, klaus. He has formerly served Other World Kingdom, and is used to the nuances of demanding Dominant women.
The last day is a Dominatrix Demands day, left blank in the itinerary for Anne to respond to requests and desires of attendees, of anything they wish to know or learn that has not already been covered.
Strict cut-off dates for enrolment booking
As Anne has to order equipment pack components months and months in advance, flying equipment over at weight per person of material, as well as bookings for rooms in Villa Domme, this year we are being incredibly strict on cut-off dates and deposits for enrolment bookings.
2020 will be the third year we have run Villa Domme. Last year, Anne’s empathy and kindness in allowing people more time to organise themselves backfired by causing problems for equipment being flown and for accommodation bookings for 2019, so this year no wiggle room will be permitted.
Those dates are:
Earlybird cut-off: 30th September 2019
Midcomer cut-off: 30th November 2019
Latecomer cut-off: 29th February 2020 (Yes that’s a real date - it’s a leap year.)
NO ONE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES ALLOWED TO ENROL BEYOND FEBRUARY LEAP YEAR 29th. ONCE MARCH 2020 CLICKS AROUND - WE ARE LOCKED IN AND ENROLMENTS ARE CLOSED.
For any queries about this or anything else, you can email Anne on: firstname.lastname@example.org
Strict class scheduling
Anne is also running much stricter class time scheduling this year, in terms of time that classes begin and end, special events planned etc. While there may be the odd thing outside of our control that can come up, such as the air-conditioned coach running slightly late in traffic, Anne is determined that everything that can be brought under tight control - will be brought under tight control!
This will ensure the itinerary runs to schedule, and it’s clear where everyone is to be at any time, and smooths the wheels for everything to run on time. (Slaves watch out!)
