Sherry Lever, 68, says she’s been inundated with requests from women wanting to learn the art of domme ever since appearing on the British TV dating show First Dates.

Her alter ego, Mistress Sofia, reinvented herself after watching a documentary about phone-sex workers.

The mother-of-three, who charges up to £120 a session, maintains she doesn’t have sexual intercourse with her clients.

Sherry told Barcroft TV: “We are labelled under sex workers, sex business, sex industry and I want to dispel that fact.

“I want people to understand we are not escorts; I don’t have sex with my subs or slaves.

“They are only allowed to worship my feet, nothing above the ankles.”

An up-and-coming dominatrix named Mistress Ruby reached out to Sherry wanting to perfect her cane work.

After a few lessons learning the art of spanking, the South African mistress feels more confident with her technique.

Mistress Ruby told Barcroft TV: “Mistress Sofia has empowered my by bringing me into her playroom, by teaching me how to do the caning.

“I’m a dominatrix in training even though I do most of it on my own, there’s still always room to learn a whole lot more.

“I enjoy the element of transforming someone and watching them become someone that they are too afraid to tell people they enjoy being.

“I enjoy caning and seeing the red marks coming, seeing the person so happy when they leave.”

In the BDSM world Sherry and Mistress Sofia are something of a legend receiving many messages and emails from women wanting to be like the 68-year-old.

Sherry told Barcroft TV: “It makes me feel humble to think from a female’s point of view they want to be like me.

“I get hundreds of messages from subs telling me how wonderful I am.

“But it’s always special when it comes from another domme because then I know I’m doing a good job if they’re saying how great I am.

“It makes me feel good.”

The retired grandmother has built up quite the client base – everyone from road sweepers to surgeons, barristers and everyone in between.

It’s abundantly clear to her slaves and protégées that Sherry loves her profession and shows no signs of slowing down in the near future.

“Subs really like an older domme, so the older I am the more popular I am,” she continued.

“I could be a grey-haired little lady but as long as I cane them and spike them, they’ll still come to me.

“I think I’d like to be doing this for another 10 years.

“I’ll probably stop when I’m 80.”
