It's hard to improve on the title of this article from the New York Law Journal: So a Nanny and a Dominatrix Walk Into a Courtroom...
The article describes a lawsuit pending in the Southern District of New York brought by a Brazilian nanny, in which she seeks over $47,000 from her former employer based on allegations that her former employer, Scarlet LeMay, violated the Fair Labor Standards Act and the New York Labor Law.
My favorite part of the article is the description of the defendant, Ms. LeMay:
Ms. LeMay has had a long career as a dominatrix and advertises under "Ultimate Encounters" in the escort listings of the Yellow Pages. She also goes by the name of Vampyra in her role as lead singer for the goth band Mantik.
Man, is my life ever boring! But, I digress...
After a little sleuthing I was able to locate a Mantik CD, which can be sampled and purchased here, should you be so inclined. And, if you're feeling particularly adventurous, feel free to visit Ms. LeMay's MySpace page.
Personally, my favorite Mantik song is "Pleasure of the Whip." What's yours?
