View Full Version : Review: Mistress Madelaine Bates

07-17-2007, 06:27 PM
I finally got lucky today and caught Mistress Madelaine on the phone after a couple of weeks of trying. I knew that she had been out of the country but I wasn't sure for how long. Either way, as I was getting desperate and starting to contemplate CL TOFFT's I was a very happy boy to catch her on the phone :D This is my 4th or 5th session with Mistress Madelaine over the past year and a bit and I have to say I have never left feeling disappointed.

I was able to make an appointment within a couple of hours of speaking to her on the phone. Her house is in East Vancouver, between Commercial and Boundary, north of Broadway. It's in a quiet, family oriented, neighbourhood. Easy to get to, easy to find.

Her playspace is a dedicated dungeon in the basement of her house. She has several different items of furniture, I can't give the names of the different bits and pieces because I don't know them :p but lots of padded benches that a disgraceful pervert such as myself can be bent over. It looks as though suspension is a possibility and I'm fairly sure I remember a cross against the far wall. It's a big room, a dedicated playspace, not cluttered.

We sat and talked for a few minutes before the session about what exactly I was looking for and then she had me undress and things got underway. I'm not going to go into graphic detail about the session... But one of the things I like best about Mistress Madelaine is her skill with ropes and ability to completely restrain me so that I can barely move. All the while she is threatening, teasing, stroking, slapping, poking, probing... And this is just while I'm being tied down, never mind what she does to me once I'm immobilised :D

The session was mostly centred around CP and anal play and she pushed my limits. Maybe I was just *really* in the mood today but her playing with my ass while simultaneously teasing me had me in heaven. She kept on breaking off for more CP, and we finished with a hard caning. Previously the most I had taken from her with the cane was a good old fashioned 6 of the best - this time it was announced I was going to get a dozen. As I was gagged, blindfolded and exquisitely restrained by then there really wasn't a lot I could do about it. It was a really beautiful predicament scenario. She spent a long time telling me exactly what I was going to be getting and why. My mind was racing with "a dozen?!" but after the sting of that first stroke the submissive part of me kicked in and just knew that I could, and would take it, no matter how much it hurt. And, of course, I did. And loved it :p But that was her judgement, not mine, her pushing my boundaries. That, to me, is the sign of a natural Domme.

Probably because we have sessioned together a few times now she is able to read me more and more and know what I can and cannot take. Whatever it is, for me Madelaine Bates is top of my "Dommes I have sessioned with in Vancouver" list.

As this is my first stand alone review I guess i should resurrect L-A-S-H-E-D, so here we go:

Looks - make up your own mind: http://madelainebates.com/ what matters more to me is....
Attitude - She is a nice person, accommodating, willing to talk through pretty much anything, non judgemental, and probably most importantly, personally motivated by what she does. This is no "SP with a whip", nor someone who thinks that being a Mistress means just being a bitch.
Service - I'm not going to reveal just how ridiculously perverted I can be, but I have always found Mistress Madelaine to be extremely understanding and accommodating :p
Headspace - I have never had a problem finding that floaty subspace in her dungeon. If you like being restrained she really is like nobody else with those ropes ;)
Equipment - She has everything I have ever required for a session and I am quite sure much besides :p
Dungeon - She has a dedicated dungeon space, uncluttered. Full of toys and furniture.

Would I go again? Of course. Would I recommend? Of course :p probably not for you if you are looking for a spinner type but if it is attitude that matters most to you (as it does for me) I don't think you will be disappointed. She can be very hard to get a hold of, but told me she will be in Vancouver until mid-late August so just keep trying I guess. I got hold of her eventually and it was worth the wait ;)

Interesting topic.

I looked at her site. It is quite comprehensive and well-written.

I am not a BDSM guy, but if I ever thought of going that route I would keep her in mind.

Thanks for sharing the review. I saw Mistress Bates about 6 years ago. I still remember the suspension swing. :) She does have extensive equipment and a really pleasant attitude.

Mistress Madelaine has been in the kink community even longer then I. I meet her when I lived in Vancouver 1995, and she was WELL established then. Little boy, you did good on being persistent to meet her. She is a well rounded, even keeled person who TRUELY loves the kinky arts. It is apart of her, her life and her philosophys. She isn't acting, it is truely her.

She like me is from the old school where the word 'Domme' drives shivers up our spins. ;)

She use to, with a partner hold workshops for people who wanted to learn bdsm and what it truely means for our life and your soul. I just looked at the site and it seems to be not working, so I would suspect she and her partner have found other things to keep themselves busy.

Glad you had a good time !!

That's what I'm talking about!

But might I be so bold as to point out it is "spines", not "spins" *extremely cheeky grin* :p
