Artemisia de Vine

You can tell so much about a person’s maturity-levels and intentions by how they hit on you. I have a rule I follow for both personal dates and for assessing potential clients.

If someone only references my appearance when giving compliments then I don’t let it go any further. It doesn’t matter how polite, charming and flattering they are when they express their attraction to my body type, if that is the only part of me they have noticed then… Bo-bawww… No thanks.

It is fine to be attracted to my appearance and to say so but to get past the guardians at my gate, a potential lover has to notice the person inside the body and demonstrate this in some way. Not rocket science and yet disturbingly, so few get this.

Keep in mind that most people approach me online so have access to a detailed dating profile or work website. There is plenty to notice other than/ as well as my body. Even those that approach me in person need to show interest in more than my appearance before I will take any notice.

By applying this same rule to clients, only accepting those that reference something about my philosophy about sex and/or BDSM, or who show self-awareness and a desire to explore themselves, I have ended up with a healthy throng of regulars I feel good about exploring with and a bunch of satisfying one-off bookings too. It is an essential part of my self-care process in a culture that just assumes objectification of women, especially sex workers, is the norm.

Artemisia de Vine escort Sydney CEA

“Artemisia looks like she has stepped out of an oil painting with her english rose complexion and womanly curves!  She is a Rubenesque Goddess who radiates warmth and sexual confidence in the way only a mature woman can.  I found her to not only be a delightfully sensual lover but also a fascinating companion.  She is an educated, classy and accomplished lady with a wicked streak.  She is bringing back the art of the courtesan while remaining really easy and comfortable to be with.  I could just be myself.”  – Brian 62yo, Sydney

“She is a heady mix of womanly curves and the friendly, flirty confidence that excites me.    If it is a skinny, young, super model you seek then go else where.  If it is an encounter with a real woman who knows what she is doing and is great to be with then I recommend spending an overnight with Artemisia.  She made me feel so alive and young again.”  – Mark 54yo, Canberra

Hello and welcome!

Artemisia escort divaMy name is Artemisia de Vine and I offer dinner dates and overnight girlfriend experience encounters to select discerning clients who enjoy the erotic company of an intelligent, curvy, woman in her late thirties.

Do you crave the touch of skin-on-skin and the delight of sinking into ample, silicon-free bosom?  Are you attracted to a voluptuous lady with soft, soft G cup breasts that jiggle when she laughs? Do you prefer the company of someone you can relax and be yourself with?

Do you find that you enjoy the erotic delights ever so much more if it is part of a date?  A chance to spend time getting to know each other and enjoy each other’s company, flirting, building tension over a meal together and then retiring to the bedroom to explore each other’s bodies?  Perhaps then falling asleep all snuggled up… only to be gently woken for lazy morning sex? Then perhaps what I offer is for you.

I have put together a list of answers to frequently asked questions you might find useful when deciding whether or not I am the right escort for you.

What actually happens on a dinner date? 

Dinner dates are a mixture of company, sharing a meal and play time.

We meet at the hotel or restaurant of your choice just like any other date.  We spend time enjoying each other’s company for the length of a the meal and some friendly drinks.  There is plenty of time to flirt and discover each other without stifling clock watching pressure.  We can let arousal build and enjoy the anticipation.  I really enjoy this kind of booking because sex is so much more fulfilling for both of us if we have time to seduce each other.

We then retire to the hotel or return to my private, lush play space affectionately called “The DeVinery”.  Here we have a leisurely few hours to sexplore together.  We find where we naturally overlap and enjoy discovering each others bodies, secret turn ons and see what unfolds.   I can be deeply sensual and affectionate but also enjoy helping your explore your wild side.

Length of booking: 5hrs

Fee: $1700  (Meal and hotel provided by you.)

Lady spanked mirrorIMG_7257-2How is an overnight booking any different to a dinner date?

More time to let things unfold in the evening, spending the night snuggled up to my soft curves and being gently awoken for morning sex… and possibly breakfast together.  The rest is the same as the dinner date scenario… company, shared meal on a date, seduction…  Never underrate seduction!  The more levels of us that are involved in a sexual encounter the more satisfying it is.  Sex is not just about the physical acts but about the places we go inside ourselves and with each other.

This type of booking requires a minimum of 6hrs sleep time.  It is a mixture of company, play time and snuggles.

Length of booking: We can begin anytime from 7pm and enjoy each other’s company unhurried until 9:30-10 ish the next day.  The cost is the same even if you start later or finish earlier to fit around your schedule.  The point is I allow up to that much time for things to take their natural course.

Fee: $2500

Do you do longer bookings for trips?

Yes I do.  However we need to have seen each other before on a shorter booking to ensure that we are suitable play mates.   Trip rates can be negotiated together in private.

How about shorter bookings?

Yes you are most welcome to come and spend a couple of hours with me in The DeVinery.  I prefer booking lengths that allow us unhurried sexploration time.  I do occasionally offer 1 hr bookings but much prefer a minimum of 90mins-2hrs.  If we are going to do it, we need to do it properly.

1 hr $400
90mins $550

2 hr $700 

Special rates: negotiated for those who want a regular monthly (or more frequent) play date.  I only offer this once I have seen you at least once.

 Do you tour?

Yes!  My most common touring destinations are Melbourne, Canberra and hopefully Perth.  I am open to touring elsewhere if there are enough enquiries.  Please join my mailing list to receive discrete updates about tours as well as sexy pictures and erotica that I write.  I also publish the odd useful blog on how to explore even more pleasure in your sexuality.

wild hair escort Artemisia bustyI follow you on twitter and you talk a lot about kinky stuff and I am not into that, can we still play?  

I am a complex sexual being.  I sometimes like to explore my sensual side and other times like to explore my kinky side.  Sometimes I want pizza for dinner… sometimes I want a minestrone soup… sometimes a spicy curry…  I cannot be boxed into categories like “sensual” or “kinky” but have a greedy appreciation of the lot.

The thing all my sessions have in common is a desire to help you explore your unique erotic wiring, just the way it is.  Each of us has a unique erotic fingerprint.  No two lovers are the same.  With me, you can let the masks fall off and be exactly who you are.  We can have an honest chat on the phone before you book and see whether or not we have enough in common to be suitable playmates.

I’m kinky as all get out, can we do the girlfriend experience and be kinky too?

Possibly.  It depends on the scenario.  If I am in my Mistress or Dominatrix role, I do not have sex with my slaves or submissives.  It just doesn’t work for me.  However, if we are doing a kinky role play I may be up for it.  So ask me.  No harm in asking right?

Do you do role play fantasies?

Oh yes I do!  Feel free to ask me what it is you really want to experience and I’ll be honest about whether or not that is something I can provide.  Some things I enjoy are role plays:

  • Teacher/Student
  • Boss/Employee
  • Age Play
  • Tie and Tease scenarios
  • And a whole variety of really creative scenarios… Email me your ideas and I’ll let you know…

I heard you do erotic massage can that be included in our evening?

Yes it can!  I am well-known for my erotic massages.  They are designed to drop you down deep into a blissful erotic state of consciousness, and I draw on tantra and other erotic embodiment techniques to make the experience so. much. more. than just a rub and tug.

However if you want this very special erotic massage, you will need to come to my space as I need certain equipment to make it work.  If this is a feature you particularly desire, then when I am on tour, make sure you ask me whether or not I have this with me before you book.

What other sexual activities do you do?

I am very well-known for being fantastic at pegging (strap-on play) and have a wide variety of toys.  I have introduced many men to the joys of male G-spot massage over the years.  Pegging can be deeply sensual or naughty and dirty…  I wrote a blog to help you discover your pegging style on my other kink-centric website.  Check it out here…

There are also a lot of activities I am fond of but for discretion sake do not want to publicly list.  Please drop me an email and ask if there is something specific you are hoping for.  I negotiate activities from person to person depending on what feels right.  (That strap on pic is not me but the rest are all me).

Please note that all my play includes safe sex practices.  This is non negotiable.

You say “select” gentlemen, what criteria do I need to meet for you to accept a booking with me? 

It’s pretty simple, if you want to do something, I try to create the space for you to explore that, but you need to show respect and get consent first.

It is true that I do not accept everyone who applies for a play date with me.  However, you need not fear that I am judging you on your appearance, cultural background, age, dis(ability).  What is important to me is that we have a certain level of rapport and respect.  We need to be able to get along or it’s not going to be fun for either of us!  We can work out whether or not we would like a booking together by a chat on the phone.

Mutual respect is vital.  I treat you as the valuable human and sexual being you are.  I care for your well-being and strive to create valuable experiences that allows you to express your true sexual self.

Artemisia ecstatic conscious sexIn return, I expect to be approached in the same manner that you would a non paid date.   Acting like a gentleman is an absolute must on my criteria.  If you approach me in a crude or degrading way then no, I will not share my vulnerable sexual self with you.  If you want to play dirty games that include dirty talk then you need to negotiate that first, not just assume its ok to speak to me that way.  I might love it!  But only if it is consensual.

Cleanliness including oral hygiene is vitally important!

Do you see older gentlemen? 

Yes I do see older gents and very much enjoy mature company.  I see people from 18-100 and meet them where they are at.

What about younger men?

Yes for sure!  I am surprised and delighted to discover that now I am more mature, I am attracting lots of younger men who want to enjoy the sexual confidence of a mature woman.  I’m having a lot of fun in my cougar years!  Each age group has their appeal…

In your experience, what makes someone good at GFE

The girlfriend experience is about acknowledging that sex is more than just a physical act.  We are sexual beings body, mind and soul. Truly satisfying sexual play takes the time to unfold and drop the masks.  It is about including all levels of us in our play.  I believe that at our core we are all the same.  It is easy for me to see that when I look into a strangers eyes… So it’s not about play acting, but taking time to connect and create a moment together..   It’s about holding the safe space to draw out an aspect of us that needs to be expressed.

That could be a moment of affection and laughing companionship… It could be playfulness… It could be intense sensual surrender… It could be a profound moment of sexual realness…   It is what it is in the moment.

I am good at allowing you to be yourself.  I create a lush atmosphere where the rest of the world drops away and you can let your guards down.  Play time with me is about recharging on more than just a physical level.

Ok I’m interested, how can I apply for a date with you?

Great!  The best way to get a feel for each other is to have a chat on the phone.  If you are shy, you are welcome to start with an email enquiry but we will need to chat before we confirm the booking.   Contact me here…

temptPleased to announce my upcoming workshops at the Celebrating Sexuality Conference  just outside Melbourne in Feb 14-16.  It is a two-hour introduction to my more in-depth 2 day workshop on this topic.   If you are interested in attending the more extensive version of this or other workshops, be sure to join my mailing list to find out when they are being held.

Artemisia de Vine Goddess of Conscious Kink & the Erotic Arts presents: Embracing our Erotic Shadows through Fantasy & Role Play.

Professional dominatrix, switch & practitioner of the conscious erotic arts, Artemisia brings her expertise and passion for entering into the deeper realms of kink play to life in this workshop.

In this workshop, Artemisia introduces the idea of consciously using role play to engage our vulnerable, hidden, erotic shadows and “forbidden” sexuality in a way that benefits ourselves and our loved ones and allows us to form a deeper, more aware relationship with our shadow selves. She guides you through fun but potent exercises and provides practical tools for creating role play scenes and rituals. There is no nudity and you do not have to share your personal erotic fantasies. Engage in the practical exercises only to whatever level you choose to.

Fantasies often get a bad rap amongst tantra circles as something that takes us away from being fully present and embodied with ourselves and our lovers. Sexual fantasies are toted as acceptable in popular culture but very rarely is their potential to access healing, personal growth and spirituality ever talked about or explored. Often our sexual fantasies are different to our lovers and it can be quite scary to share them. We quite often don’t want to admit we have them ourselves because the nature of fantasy is that of strange dream-like desires, images and urges that drift up from our unconscious mind only when we are aroused. In fantasy we act in ways towards ourselves and each other in way we may not really want to in everyday life. This can be confusing and a source of shame. Artemisia presents an accessible but powerful ways of embracing our shadow selves through fantasy, erotic role play rituals.

Artemisia is a professional and lifestyle kinkster, sex worker, somatic sex coach, workshop facilitator, public speaker, blogger and aspiring author. Trained in sexological bodywork, various forms of neo-tantra, lomi lomi bodywork, BDSM and draws on various esoteric erotic traditions. Her whole life is dedicated to passionately exploring and sharing the erotic arts in aware and delicious ways.

Should you enjoy this introductory workshop and want to explore deeper, Artemisia offers more in-depth one-on-one sessions and lessons and a far more in-depth 2 day workshop on this topic.  Join her mailing list to hear about upcoming opportunities and browse her Conscious Erotic Arts and Conscious Kink websites for current offerings.

Finding ways to channel the archetypes far more than skin deep… Creating images of power, vulnerability, ecstasy, and the sexual version of the hero’s journey… images that reflect the inner work of truly accessing our sexuality… art that calls to the core of heart, cock and cunt, not just tickles the eye…

FanAs a whore, I don’t want to be treated as a pretty pet to pass the time with.  I choose to be seen as the skilled practitioner in her sexual power and beauty who is capable of taking clients on erotic journeys and experiences into themselves… giving them a chance to feel what it is like to be with a sexually empowered and embodied woman.

Many whores I know are fiercely fabulous, self-aware, connected sexual beings.   The thing is, we are so limited in where we can advertise and get our message out there…  The brothels and the adult services directories frame sex work in a way that is counter to the above implying we are there to simply physical vessels to pleasure submissively… that we are an item on the menu…  sets of physical features with polite customer service formulaic conversational styles.

I see us as more akin to tango teachers and expert dance partners… part counsellor, part companion, part playmate, part sex educator, part priestess to guide you into the erotic mysteries…  Someone with a skill to share and respect.  I see myself as a representative of the archetypal woman,  who knows how to help you explore you inner world through sexual play.

Self discovery… Play… Pleasure…Comfort…. Holistic connection with our whole beings through sexual energy… 

Some advertising sites have done a semi effective job of countering the image that we are merely physical bodies with submissive, pre-scripted phrases but they still don’t quite get it right.  It’s still a case of us having to present ourselves within a framework that assumes certain values and ways of being.   There is still internalized whorephobia and sexism coded into the framework that disadvantages clients and sexuality professionals alike.

Imagine how much would change if we re-framed that whole culture of representation.   What if we choose to think of a whore as a sexual life coach who you approach with respect because they are an expert in their field?  Or a holistic companion to engage with you on all levels?  Then perhaps you can consciously negotiate sexual power roles together… Maybe she or he is more than happy to be the sexual submissive on their knees to please and treat you like royalty… Maybe she or he prefers to be the one who takes the lead and guide you to pleasing them… Or guide you to discovering aspects of yourself you didn’t know were there… Either way is fine.  There is the world of difference in being a sexually submissive woman when that role is consciously negotiated compared to when it is just assumed that all female whores are sexually submissive and subservient.

I draw to me clients who think along those lines.  Many men truly adore women and are respectful, genuine clients who are delighted to discover what is possible down the erotic rabbit hole but the culture of industry itself  makes it hard for them too.  The way we frame sex work needs to change so we can all access juicier play.

Artemisia glamI sit all my clients down on the couch for a chat before we begin a conscious sexuality session of any kind be it an escort, erotic massage, erotic ritual, kinky session or a lesson in deeper pleasure. I say, “Tell me why you are here. What do you *really* want to experience? You were drawn to have a session with me because… Why? What are you hoping will happen? If you were to leave here saying “Wow! That was a fantastic session I really had an amazing experience!” what would have happened to make you feel that way?”

They don’t just describe the physical activities they hope for or the parts of my body they are attracted to… We get into a discussion that allows them to explore what they *really* want deep inside. We then discuss where I am willing and able to meet them and where I can’t. We set boundaries, create safe space where we both agree to explore and the session begins from a conscious place.

This makes the session a lot more satisfying for both of us. It shifts it from being a routine experience to something more real and potent. We get to actually engage as holistic sexual beings not just bodies. – Artemisia de Vine
