BROOKLYN (PIX11) -- Miss Lady Wednesday has a cache of weapons from whips to a stun gun to stiletto heels, all of which she uses to inflict pain upon men who pay her to do it.

Born Lena Marquise, this dominatrix works from her Brooklyn apartment. When PIX11 arrived Monday afternoon, a longtime client was crawling on his hands and knees, naked, doing chores.

“Over the two years, he’s proved to be obedient and punctual and to follow instructions to the greatest detail, so he’s now become more of a houseboy though he’s still a client,” Marquise said.

She said this particular client performs tasks she’s rather not, like putting gas in her car, taking out the trash or going grocery shopping. A married man and a working professional, he leaves wearing business attire.

The subculture of bondage and domination, sadism and masochism is getting increased attention thanks to the film “50 Shades of Grey,” based on the best-selling book of the same name. It hits theaters Valentine’s Day weekend.

Marquise suspects the upcoming release and the incredible hype surrounding the film are response for as pike in calls from potential clients.

“People are so excited by it that they’re reaching out without exploring what it is they want from themselves or from me,” she said.

The NYC dominatrix, who charges $400 an hour for her services, said she’s looking forward to seeing how “the masses” respond to a glimpse into her lifestyle, long hidden beneath taboo.
