NEW YORK, NY — On Saturday, February 16, Julie Simone will head to Houston, TX to start her Domme educational tour and will be there through Thursday February 21. The series will be conducted in dungeons across the country and Simone will provide up-close and personal private classes in femdom bondage, femdom anal play, spanking, and a breath play class that incorporates other fetishes such as latex, gloves, smoking, and more. 

Domina Shannon, HeadMistress of Houston's The Vault and longtime friend of Simone said, "Education is an important element here at The Vault and we are super excited to be learning from one of the best in the business." 

“I can’t wait to get this Domme educational tour started,” says Simone. “I've taught at lots of events, but wanted to do something with a more personal touch so that everyone in the classes gets more one-on-one attention. With the success of 50 Shades, more people are curious about bondage and fetish, but don’t have all the correct info — this could lead to serious injury, instead of extreme pleasure, and I want to keep that from happening. One can't be certified and considered an expert after just one class. We're all constantly learning and sharing new techniques, which is a beautiful part of it.” 

Simone will be available for sessions at Domina Shannon’s The Vault for the duration of her stay. For information on sessions and rates, go to

Be dressed to impress for the best-dressed couple contest, get your photo snapped in the photo booth and listen to DJs spinning Goth, EBM and Industrial all night long.
