Great name, eh? Why Andromeda and not something more BDSM'ish? Well, Andromeda is the name of the princess who was chained to a rock as a sacrifice to appease the Kraken in Greek mythology. In classical art, she was the first female to be depicted in chains of bondage. Can you see where I am going with this?
Why not call my dungeon studio after her. I think that it is a fitting name as I hope lots of maidens and men end up in chains and bondage within my dungeon.
Climbing a mountain
It is going to be a huge slog. I already have a business plan that I am continuously tweaking, and I am saving like mad to enable me to get started on this important project.
But, as you can imagine, it is going to be a slow project as what I am planning isn't going to be cheap. Just the rental aspect is scary, and that is before any internal work is carried out or equipment purchased.
Getting financial help from corporate institutions in a non-starter, I have had the door slammed in my face numerous times now due to this being a "dirty idea". Anything sexually-orientated is complicated to finance through traditional channels which is why it is having to be self-funded in the main.
It is like climbing a mountain, you take two steps forward and then slip back a step. But I do have time on my hands and will keep plodding along until I reach my goal.
A dungeon you say?
Yes, I want a fully equipped dungeon where people can explore, learn and fulfil their fantasies in private. I also want to be able to use it for kink photography as a studio, and this is a good thing.
I want facilities like a wetroom, darkroom, little play space and maybe even a pony play area.
It will also have chill space, where aftercare can be administered as well as a kitchen for snacks, drinks and cooking meals if needed (think munches).
Changing rooms, lockers, toilets and showers will also be needed for obvious reasons.
I badly need a place where I can work undisturbed, an area where I can field phone calls and do business without prying ears hampering me.
I want to have a small studio for product photographs and a storeroom too. Have you any idea how many sex toys a sex toy reviewer amasses?
I am always tweaking my plans, but here is a very simple mindmap showing some of the problems and factors that I need to consider.
There is a lot to think about in a project of this size
As you can see, there are lots of factors under consideration, but I think the idea is tenable. It should be an excellent facility for the kink and vanilla community alike.
If anyone wants to chip in towards the project, then I am accepting donations in any form. Wealthy benefactors welcome LOL.
I am not begging for help, but it would be gratefully accepted.
Let me know in the comments form below if you think this is a good idea or not. Maybe you have some suggestions for extra facilities that you would like to see. It would be nice to hear from you.Joanne is going to open an inclusive dungeon space, wish her luck. Click to Tweet
I will keep everyone abreast of the project as it evolves here.
