How does a professional dominatrix differ from an amateur? Skill, experience, time, energy, expertise and practice. Lots and lots of practice. It takes ten thousand hours to become an expert doing anything. Even a really enthusiastic lifestyle mistress plays maybe a couple a times a week? I practice my craft significantly more than that and with far more variation.
