Damcho Dyson’s spent the last 10 years in her plain religious clothes but now she has transformed it for something more flexible.
Damcho was once an attendant to the Dalai Lama. But while she was on a trip to India, a massage changed her life, and now, she has become Britain’s naughtiest nun.
After quitting her Tibetan Buddhist Monastery in France, she currently enjoys her weekends capering in latex at a fetish club.
The 45-year-old told the Sunday People,
I’d been celibate for 10 years and, as a nun, my practice meant my brain was able to override my bodily needs. Lying there having that massage I had an epiphany. I suddenly had a sense of the vitality within my body and decided the time was right to leave the monastery.
The first time I tried on latex I felt empowered. It complements the female form and somehow felt reminiscent of the ritual wearing of Buddhist robes. The shop owner and I became friends and she introduced me to the latex scene.
She was 23 when she first thought of becoming a nun. She stayed in her native Melbourne, Australia for six years, then left for Nepal. She says,
I still feel a bit like a naughtiest nun. But I am a middle aged woman who has always liked to express herself so why not? I’m finally letting my hair down when I once used to shave it all off.
