Dominatrix 'Mistress Tia' banned from village hall
Professional sadomasochist Sophie Allen, 27 – stage name Mistress Tia – hired the hall in Waters Upton in Telford, Shropshire, for sessions.
She offers caning, verbal abuse, flogging, waxing, whipping and boot worship to her slaves.
Blogging on her website, she said: ‘Been getting ready for my production shoot tomorrow, can’t wait, got loads of new slaves coming, putting some really great ideas into practice.
‘Hired out the village hall again in Telford which is a really big place with nice wooden floors which really accentuate the sound of my heels.’
She charges £80 for 30 minutes or £150 for an hour, with photos available as mementos for an extra £20.
Darren Morgan, who runs the local butchers, said: ‘I am shocked to hear of such lurid activities.’
Another villager added: ‘As long as they keep away from us, they can do what they like.’
Katrina Baker, chairman of the hall management committee, confirmed the sessions had been banned.
She said it had been booked by a man ‘for auditions’ so the true nature of what was going on did not become clear until managers realised he was Mistress Tia’s business partner.
