Grande Mistress Carla - Queen of Domination

In a magazine article by Kyle Swenson from the Palm Beach New Times from November 25, 2014, with the title:

author Dr. Charlayne Grenci's experiences from the last 30 years are recalled:

"Thanks to the literary chart-topper called Fifty Shades of Grey, the BDSM corner of the fetish universe is no longer off-limits in the mainstream. Average Joes and Janes don't have to keep their leather-riding crops and cuffs hidden in the closet anymore."

50 Shades of Grey is just fiction - but this is the real life story!

"Back in the '80s, when Dr. Charlayne Grenci slipped into the role of Mistress Carla, at the time South Florida's most in-demand dominatrix, folks were less understanding. In fact, Grenci's pioneering dungeon moves landed her in a legal battle with Broward authorities.
"It really became a witch-hunt because it was so controversial at the time," Grenci says today of her court tussles, which are covered in her recently released memoir, Queen of Domination, for sale on Amazon or http://drgrenciphd.com.

Grenci was born and raised in an upper-middle-class family from Maine. But she didn't find out about the domination world until the late '70s, when she was living in South Florida. "A friend of mine told me about the existence of this underground scene," she explains. "It was beyond taboo to me. I was extremely vanilla.”
Grenci says she just recognized the need for the fetish. "Why would prominent and successful CEOs and lawyers and doctors be interested in doing it? There's a basic need in our society for this.”
Between 1980 and 1983, Grenci had about 500 customers come through her dungeon, she says. Before every session, her assistant would interview the customer about his likes and dislikes. Later, Grenci scribbled detailed notes on the answers, creating a PhD-caliber study of human kink.
The brakes slammed in February 1983. Likely tipped off by nosy neighbors, the Broward Sheriff's Office banged on Grenci's door with a search warrant. She was eventually arrested and charged with a handful of charges, including keeping a house of ill fame. Altogether, she faced up to a 25-year jail sentence. Grenci, who felt this was unfair, was determined to fight the charge on the grounds that she was providing a therapeutic service. The trial ended in mistrial. Before her second scheduled trial, Grenci accepted a plea deal, eventually serving 90 days in jail and 500 hours of community service.

She attended a school called Maimonides University and got a degree in clinical sexology in the 2000s.  
Her research has been based on observing, interviewing, and working with thousands of people.  Her research study has focused on various sexual practices, and alternative lifestyles, sexual preferences, sexual human behavior, and most relationship issues.

Still, Grenci's case made headlines all over South Florida and was part of a larger pattern of underground lifestyles smacking against sanctimonious authority.

Dr. Charlayne Grenci's Queen of Domination: My Secret Life is the gripping, poignant true story of a courageous woman who has always lived on the edge of society and sanity for being herself, with a fate to never fit in. 

Grenci's endless perseverance and imitable strength in her convictions unleashed her passion to explore her own sexual desires and to perpetuate her mission to study human sexual behaviors. Living in a powerful drama of fear, anguish, and rejection since childhood, to suffering the cruelty of persecution and a prosecution turned into a sensationalized "witch-hunt," Grenci risked it all again and again to challenge the system where others feared to tread.

Queen of Domination: My Secret Life reveals the shocking and graphic details of her risqué sex life and taboo professions, embroiled in sex, kink, corruption, deviance, and debauchery.
