Interview with the CEO of worlds most famous BDSM Club

Interview with John Storij, AEN team member and owner of worlds most famous BDSM club: SM Club Doma.

John has been a true icon in the BDSM entertainment scene for decades. He founded his company Club Doma in 1979 with the aim of offering a low-threshold, woman-friendly environment for BDSM enthusiasts. A place where people could experiment and experience the BDSM lifestyle in a relaxed and non-committal way.

For that time a taboo-breaking concept that attracted visitors from all over the world. It gave him and his club world-wide fame.

Doma’s 39 years of adult industry experience in combination with all the positive changes he has helped achieve in and for the bdsm scene, he can really be seen as a true porn pioneer.

Club Doma is located in the quiet flower district in The Hague, The Netherlands. It is fully furnished and equipped with the most common BDSM attributes and toys. From there he produces films, organizes live BDSM shows and (private) BDSM sessions.

How did you end up in the BDSM industry?
I found that there was a great need for a safe place in the world where like-minded people could meet each other. I already discovered my preference for BDSM for 16 years so at the age of 32 I was ready to give shape to this meeting ‘s place. I founded SM CLUB DOMA on September 16, 1979 at Asterstraat 107 in The Hague with the knowledge of BDSM and my commercial experience in the retail trade.

What are the biggest misconceptions about BDSM?
When people hear the word BDSM they think of sadism, hitting, violent and pain. It goes too far to explain everything extensively, but there are certain rules. An SM experience happens with mutual good finding. The participants must show respect for each other. Both persons who experience the SM game with each other serve mutually a lot of fun to experience. Nothing will happen against the will of the other. There will be no permanent injury and the hygiene will have to be 100%.

Do you have specific goals when it comes to your BDSM company?
In 1979 our goal was to gain recognition for the matter. Here is still our focus. We use all forms of the written press and radio and TV. With this we came out publicly for what we wanted to achieve. We have also been active for 10 years for the training school of the police, which has generated much appreciation for our company.

Do you also love the BDSM lifestyle?
Yes, I am involved with BDSM from my own interest 24/7.

What kind/type of persons visit your BDSM club?
Visitors in our studio come from all walks of life. Both high and low educated people.

Do you also have female customers?
Definitely. They often come with a partner and rent the studio for a certain time.

How long does a standard session take?
A standard session lasts 90 minutes. This can be extended by 30 minutes.

What is the most important thing in a standard BDSM session? Achieving an ultimate orgasm, the feeling of submission… or?
In a session with 2 people, one will be Dominant (active) and the other will undergo it. Both will enjoy their own role in this. An orgasm is subordinate to the session. It can occur but is not a fixed pattern. If we talk about Kinky BDSM then an orgasm is part of the game. This is a game that is more focused on the physical than the spiritual.

Is there real sex (sexual intercourse) during a BDSM session?
In a classic BDSM game there will be no sexual intercourse. However, with Kinky BDSM there will be sexual intercourse, off course depending on the customer’s wishes.

Do you test your mistresses yourself?
No. But I always have a conversation with the ladies where I discuss the legal matters and the house rules of our company with them upfront.

How do you distinguish yourself from other BDSM companies?
We are looking for quality at the highest level. We are critical about the hygiene, safety and quality of the BDSM games we offer. We also give advice about BDSM in general.

Do you think the movie Fifty Shades of Gray has helped the BDSM industry?
Certainly it has become more open for discussion. We also experience this in our booking amounts. It has increased a lot. For many, the film is a reason to discuss it within their relationship, often with positive developments.

What was the most surprising request you ever received from a customer?
Many people come with wishes that only exist in fantasies. These are often extremities that we can not and are not legally allowed to realize.

What is the most risky about BDSM?
Lack of knowledge concerning safety and hygiene.

Have you ever refused a customer?
Yes, many times: if one violates our house rules or comes with fantasies that can not be realized, or when somebody shows no respect to us.

Why do you think people are attracted to BDSM?
It is a form of relaxation, both physically and mentally. You choose the form in your life that you speak to in order to relax. This can differ in various types of sports and hobbies. For many, that is BDSM.

What were the highlights of your career so far?
The fact that in all those years I have been able to help and make many people happy with the opportunity I have created for them. I received a lot of appreciation for this from the whole world. The name Doma is still a concept in the world and is talked about with great respect.

Why did you decide to participate in the AEN crypto project?
First, I have faith in the team. Secondly, this is the solution for our company to create sales without the intervention of credit card companies, they do not accept adult companies like ours.

What can people expect from you in the near future?
Doma SM Suite will become available for live broadcasts at the Pornscope project. I will connect our TV channel (Doma SM TV) to the AEN platform and in time customers will be able to rent and pay for the Doma SM Suite with AEN tokens.
