My voice will magically become the lasso that wraps around you, controlling every muscle fiber in your body. My wish will be your body’s command. Sensuality is at the heart of BDSM. I love watching my slaves tremble as I inflict just enough pain to bring thier senses alive. Then I’ll ease that pain with my gentle, soothing voice. To tease you mercilessly with my exquisite toes then ease you back down again, over and over. The ultimate dance between pleasure and pain; it’s very erotic. I love looking deeply into my slave’s eyes and watching them struggle and wriggle in painful ecstasy. Using your own drugged mind as my weapon to wield, my aura will pull you into an unfamiliar, but comfortable zone–a realm that is more powerful than your most intense dreams.

ZanyM (or Morgan) has been in the BDSM scene for over a decade. A silly playful toppy sadist, a mischievous alpha geek and a reaction junkie, her first love kink-wise is rope. Morgan is a co-coordinator of the TES Hypnokink SIG with her partner-in-crime MrDream. She has taught classes at The Eulenspiegel Society, TES Fest 2013, Fetish Fair Fleamarket, NEEHU and at Deepmind Darkwood (also known as Camp MindFuck.) If you want to get on her good side, bring her dark chocolate. “She seemed so sweet and innocent, until I got to know her.”
