Britain's Longest-Serving Dominatrix Retires Her Whip

At 66, Susan Dawson is hanging up the old handcuffs.

Nope, we're not expecting a retirement gold watch to be sent to Mistress Susan Dawson, who at age 66 is packing up her handcuffs and whips. Britain's longest-serving dominatrix, who has been paddling the bottoms of Britain's finest for more than 25 years, is retiring, according to the Daily Mail.

Dawson has closed up her seaside guesthouse in Great Yarmouth from where she offered her bed, breakfast and bondage services to some of the country's more prominent citizens.

As she told the Daily Mail: "I might not see them in my dungeon anymore but I see them on television all the time." Dawson, however, is not a spank-and-tell kind of gal. "I’d never give names but it’s safe to say I’ve spanked some very well-known men." The property, including her famed dungeon, is being converted into apartments.

Dawson didn't intend to go into the bondage business, but fell into it by accident after searching for ways to make extra money. Her husband, Paul, fully supported her. He says she's a natural because she's so "bossy."
 
But like many who hit the double-6, her reason for retiring is simple: She's simply tired of working.
 
Dawson isn't the first dominatrix over 50 we've covered. One grandmother of three known simply as Ms. Robin said earlier this year that she didn't discover her sexually adventurous side until she was in her 40s.
