Mistress Silk Candy

Mistress Silk Candy

I’m a biologist. Therefore, I work in a laboratory. It is a well-paid job, and everyday is a challenge to my abilities. On the other hand, it is competitive and stressful. Everyone wants your job, and you have to work really hard to get a promotion. That is, you must deliver the best results, or you’ll be substituted. It’s really hard. That doesn’t sound like Mistress Silk Candy, does it?

I would never quit my job. It’s what I want to do. However, after a very ugly crisis, I had to acknowledge it was getting on my nerves. I had to do something to compensate for what my job was doing to me. It had something totally unscientific, wild, crazy, playful. 

And that’s when Shibari came into the picture.

I had tried bondage a couple of times before, but this had to be way over the top. Lately, I had been reading about Jung’s psychology, and I had loved his idea that we are not just one I, but rather, that we are made up of different aspects of our personality. There is the “person”, which is our social mask. In my case, it is Cindy, the biologist, or, better yet, Dr. Cindy Richter, a skilled professional, specialized in microbiology.

There are other aspects of personality in Jung’s psychology, but the one that called my attention was the “shadow”. You see, the shadow comprises our darkest desires, everything we hide from the others, our wildest, darkest fantasies. And that’s exactly what I took to create my alter ego: Mistress Silk Candy, a bondage enthusiast who loves to tie men and women, and experience intense power dynamics in dark Shibari scenes.

You can’t imagine how much fun I’ve had with this character! You see, Silk Candy doesn’t have to be precise and professional, she can be wild and spontaneous. She can be dominant, even unfair, not objective and rational. She is the dark side of me, and, now that I know her, I will never let her go. Besides, all this “secret identity” game is the funniest experience I’ve ever had.

This is my Shibari story.
