Jenny Nordbak takes us to a place that few have seen, but millions have fantasized about, revealing how she transformed herself from a USC grad lacking in confidence into an elite professional dominatrix who finds her own voice, power and compassion for others.

On an unorthodox quest to understand her hidden fantasies, Jenny led a double life for two years. By day she was a construction manager, but at night she became Mistress Scarlett. Working at LA’s longest-running dungeon, she catered to the secret fetishes of clients ranging from accountants to movie stars. She simultaneously developed a career in the complex and male-dominated world of healthcare construction, while spending her nights as a sex worker, dominating men. Far from the standard-issue powerful men who pay to be helpless, Mistress Scarlett’s clientele included men whose fantasies revealed more complex needs, from “Tickle Ed” to “Doggie Dan,” from the “Treasure Trolls” to “Ta-Da Ted.” The Scarlett Letters explores the spectacularly diverse array of human sexuality and the fascinating cast of characters that the author encountered along the way.


  • Amazing Read, Really Eye Opening Into That World!

    By WarlockTriqz
    I had first heard of the book through the podcast "Sick Addictions with Joclyn Stone." It was a great interview and really sold me on reading the book. But, after reading it, it was better than portrayed in the interview. It's not simply about working in a "dungeon" even though there are several stories about this in the book. It's also a tale of learning who you really are as a person and learning that others have their own personal struggles, so rushing to judge others is never a good idea. I was also pretty amazed that we have been conditioned by the media, movies, and TV that coming out about who you really are is almost always met with rejection. While she describes the fear of that rejection, she was always met by support with friends and family about it (at least, that's what it read like), even her mother said she was glad that she had found a way to be happy. So, it's always reassuring to hear tales of people wanting the best for their friends and family, no matter where that road takes them. All in all, highly recommended, even if you don't consider yourself "part of that world."
  • Incredible read!!!

    By CharRose5
    This book was an incredible read! I loved the point of view of this author, which is very authentic and honest and shows a perspective of a world most don’t get a chance to see in a light that is very realistic and matter-of-fact. Through her self-discovery we learn about many of Jenny's insecurities and vulnerabilites and adresses many themes about the world that many would rather ignore and shows many facets of human sextuality in a way that makes you reevaluate your own perspectives on sexuality. There has never been a more open, heartfelt, and inspiring story about self-discovery and learning to live and love without fear from judgement! Absolutely loved it!
