An Interview with Lady Sally Rudston-Chichester : Mistress Of The Air by S. Nano

An interview with Lady Sally Rudston-Chichester about her airship

Today I’m delighted to announce I have a guest on my blog page. I’m interviewing Edwardian dominatrix, Lady Sally Rudston-Chichester, about her airship, ‘The Corseted Domme’.

I’m also lucky to be able to give you an exclusive view of the plan for Lady Sally’s airship which she’s shared with me.

A book about her adventures entitled ‘Mistress Of The Air’ has just been published.

Roxanne Rhoads (RR): From the plan your airship looks amazing.

Lady Sally (LS): ‘The Corsetted Domme’ is a marvel. She is the largest and fastest dirigible ever to take to the air – a veritable ocean liner of the skies. She has a sleek, phallus-like shape and is an object of beauty.

RR: I’m curious about the name on the plan though, I thought your airship was called ‘The Corseted Domme’?

LS: Indeed, that is the case. Of course, the plans were produced at the development stage for my dirigible when it had the working name of ‘R100’. Naturally, I gave her a name more in tune with my personality. Being a strict dominatrix with wardrobes of corsetry, ‘The Corseted Domme’ seemed perfect.

RR: The plans are extremely detailed. I understand your airship has a number of innovative design features.

LS: Indeed, yes. My designers and engineers have come up with some amazing innovations. The frame of the airship is made from a brand-new material, duralumin, which is an incredibly light aluminium alloy. Then, the geodetic construction is a marvel; it increases the torsional load bearing capacity and enables such a massive length and huge girth. Each transverse frame of her construction consists of an erect, hard girder that penetrates a series of polygonal structures supported by radial wires.

RR: That sounds fascinating, your ladyship. How fast can she fly?

LS: The Corseted Domme has a cruising speed of between 80 and 100 mph but can attain a top speed of 120 mph. The injection of dimethyl aether into her fuel gives her added propulsion.

RR: That’s incredibly fast. Did you fly her at top speed?

LS: Well, yes. You see I did have to make one or two hurried escapes on my travels. I had to leave Potsdam in a hurry because I was being pursued by the Prussian Empire’s airship fleet. Then there some unfortunate incidents in the Russian Empire which required quick getaways. Oh… and I had to escape from the Ottoman Empire because of a ‘do’ with the Sultan. So, yes, ‘The Corseted Domme’ was certainly put through her paces on my travels.

RR: Did you fly her yourself?

LS: No, I had my airship pilot, Captain Wyndham to do that. I recruited him after watching him flying at the Doncaster flying meeting of October 1910. I was impressed by some of his moves in the bi-plane trials and, besides, I am an excellent judge of character. He proved to be a courageous airship pilot and a loyal servant. The Captain also had a co-pilot – one of my brass, automatons who I named Clarissa. 

RR: I understand you have lots of adventures across Europe. Where did you travel to?

LS: There were several of my aristocratic relatives I wanted to visit…in Vienna, Potsdam and St Petersburg. Then I simply had to do some shopping in the bazaar in Istanbul, before going to look at the erotic frescos at Pompeii, and then onto the French Empire to receive an award given to me by La Societé D’Aviation Et Les Dirigeables.

RR: And lastly, perhaps you can tell me about the worst experience you had on your travels?

LS: Well, that’s easy. Whilst visiting the Princess Maria Labiastein in Vienna I was served coffee…and at tea time! How disgusting. Her apple strudel was good though… but, I ask you, what’s the point of a fine patisserie if you don’t have a decent cup of tea to wash it down. I have vowed never to visit Vienna again!

RR: Thank you Lady Sally, it’s been most enlightening.

Book Description:

Mistress Of The Air is a Comic, Steampunk, Erotic Adventure.

Lady Sally Rudston-Chichester owns a brass mine in Zanzibar, a Lapsang Souchong tea plantation in China, a rubber farm in Malaysia, trunk loads of corsetry, and the country’s largest collection of antique whips.

Larger than life, and itching to find new and inventive ways to punish her submissive gentlemen, the Edwardian dominatrix has a vision. Embracing the spirit of the age of aviation, she embarks on a series of adventures on her airship, ‘The Corseted Domme’, with her transvestite maid, Victoria, her airship pilot, Captain Wyndham, and her automaton sex-doll, Borghild.

A select group of submissive gentlemen, consisting of a duke, bishop, lawyer and banker, is invited to join Lady Sally so she can try out her dastardly, electric and steam-powered devices on them. She spanks, whips, and punishes her way across the Empires of Europe, dropping off to visit her aristocratic relatives and friends for afternoon tea.

But Lady Sally’s journey is not uneventful. War is threatening to break out and the Ministry of Aviation want to commandeer her airship for the war effort. And when ‘The Corseted Domme’ has a crash landing, Lady Sally realises there is a stowaway on board intent on sabotaging her airship.

‘Mistress of the Air’ is a genre-crossing comic, Steampunk, erotic adventure as Lady Sally delivers a BDSM kick up the back-side to the Edwardian country house novel.

Extract 6
Borghild’s movements were a tad mechanical, which was only to be expected. Indeed, she marched in a military style goose-step, which contributed strangely to her kinkiness.
Lady Sally asked Victoria to summon the captain to the playroom, on the grounds he would be fascinated by the technological advances manifested in her new automaton.
Her slaves gazed upon the pair in awe at the gleaming, scarlet rubber in matching outfits. Lady Sally’s elegant and shapely legs were on full show in the short dress alongside the shiny, brass ones of the automaton.
Lady Sally proceeded to introduce her, “This is Borghild. She has been especially designed for me by Ernst von Siemen, the renowned automation manufacturer. I made the diversion into the industrial wastelands of the Ruhr to pick her up from the manufactory. She will be my accomplice in punishment for the rest of my travels and has been designed specifically with my needs for sadistic domination in mind. I expect she will play a full part in assisting me. Remember, though, there will be no point pleading for mercy from her, as she’ll take no notice. This will mean more fun for me and double the pain for you!”
The springs and sockets behind Borghild’s eyes clicked and whirred, swivelling her sockets from side to side with a gaze of disconcerting perspicacity as her photographic cells took recognition of the images of the four men.
Captain Wyndham made an appearance before this announcement.
“Ah, there you are captain. I trust things are quiet in the control room.”
“For a change, madam, yes.”
“I hope my adventures are not too exacting for you, captain?”
“No, not at all Lady Sally; it was intended as a compliment not a complaint.”
“Excellent. There’s no point asking the opinion of this bunch of miscreants: bankers don’t know about anything useful, bishops have no appreciation for technological achievements, judges are hopeless, except for contesting an argument...”
“I say, that’s unfair,” interrupted the judge, “I believe I can make a strong case for arguing for the intellectual capacity of a judge. The evidence is very strong…”
Lady Sally gave him a withering stare.
“And as for dukes, well they are useless.”
“Fair comment mistress,” acknowledged the duke with a nod of his foppish lock of hair.
“But I know you, captain, will appreciate the technological marvel of Borghild.”
Captain Wyndham inspected the automaton with considered curiosity. He looked into her eyes to examine the photographic cells, he examined the construction of her joints, and studied the control panel that operated the automaton.
“Truly remarkable,” Lady Sally. “She’s a work of art. I’ve worked with Clarissa and she’s marvellous, but the quality of the brass moulding and engineering of the limbs are more sophisticated in this model. And her eyes… it’s as if she’s alive. Can she talk? Has Herr Siemen mastered that technology?”

“No, regrettably not captain, though that’s just as well. I couldn’t put up with anyone who contradicts me, not even an automaton.”
