The Man in The Black Rubber Suit

aka A Woman’s work is Never Done

This painting is a takeoff on the fifties novel and movie portraying corporate America - The Man In The Gray Flannel Suit. Here roles are reversed, man is subservient to woman. It also comments on the fact that most people who frequent the world of female domination (or the ones that pay for it) are generally from a wealthy, (mostly corporate) background. They have to be, sessions with a professional dominatrix are quite expensive especially on a regular basis.

The alternate title “A Woman’s Work Is Never Done” is from the old rhyme: A man works from sun to sun but a woman’s work is never done. Quite true if you explore the lives of these professional doms. It is a very demanding lifestyle both physically and psychologically. Often a 24 hour day job, these ladies work their butts off as well as the butts they whip.
