Casgraux’s Career as a Dominatrix
Courtney Casgraux worked for many years as a professional dominatrix, starting in her 20s while based in Los Angeles. Dominatrices engage in BDSM (bondage, discipline, dominance and submission, sadism, and masochism) activities with clientele at specialized fetish clubs known as “dungeons.” Casgraux provided domination services to an exclusive clientele, commanding up to $500 per hour. While details remain scarce, she seemed to keep this work private even from friends.
During the pandemic, Casgraux left her current home of Portland to stay with a friend in New York City. There she occasionally returned to dominatrix work at Donatella’s Dungeon, an underground establishment in Manhattan. The discreet, password-protected club contains BDSM equipment and themed rooms for alternative escapism. But Casgraux could not prevent exposure of this secret part of her past.
Courtney Casgraux Leaked Onlyfans Video
In late August 2022, a video surfaced on Reddit showing Casgraux’s dominatrix work at Donatella’s Dungeon. It displayed her in revealing attire interacting intimately with a male client. Casgraux first reacted with panic and distress when she discovered the leak on August 31, fearing damage to her reputation. She desperately tried to identify the source, contacting associates in case any harbored malicious intent.
Casgraux refrained from publicizing her history as a dominatrix, anticipating judgment. The non-consensual exposure seemed intended to shame her. She described her anger to the New York Post: “It felt like an attack on women, not just an attack on me.”
Rather than hide, Casgraux reclaimed her past by launching a Playboy profile to sell tasteful nude photos. She reframed her work as empowerment and resolved to strengthen advocacy for privacy rights and marginalized groups.
Congressional Campaign and Platform
Casgraux currently challenges incumbent Suzanne Bonamici in the Democratic primary for Oregon’s 1st District. Her platform emphasizes voting rights, abortion access, decriminalizing drugs, small businesses, and unions.
Casgraux controversially advocates fully legalizing drugs, not just decriminalizing possession. She argues Oregon’s partial drug decriminalization has increased addiction problems. Her solution is legalizing supply and using tax revenue to fund treatment.
While bold, Casgraux faces an uphill battle against the well-funded Bonamici. But Casgraux believes she can overcome financial disadvantages through grassroots passion and engaging non-traditional voters.
