Ilsa's mean as hell, but real low-key. No shouting, barking or other histrionics. Just pain and restraint. To wit: very complicated rope bondage, suspension, caning and heating up Jade's nipple rings with a cigarette end. Jade starts off smart-assing Ilsa, but that business stops pretty quickly. What's best though is Strix's good-humored, restrained Domme style.
