Isabella Sinclaire

“Easy on the eyes, hard on everything else.” This tag line defines the woman who has become an international pillar of the fetish community since 1993. Highly regarded amongst her fans and contemporaries, and having been featured in many areas of the public eye, including television, magazines, lectures, seminars, radio, public events and performances, she remains one of the world’s most sought after Dominas.

Isabella Sinclaire kick started her career while in her early 20’s as a professional dominatrix and fetish model in NYC. Upon realizing her persona was a highly marketable product, she began producing custom videos for those who dreamed of experiencing her sessions in person, but lived too far away. These video productions grew into her company, Ivy Manor Videos with over 60 films in its catalog.

With the Internet in its infancy stages, Isabella was one of the first Dominas with a presence on the web. Using this new technology, she was able to reach distant fans across the globe and offer them a glimpse into her realm. In late 1997, she began hosting a membership-based fan site out of her private dungeon, which she eventually sculpted into The Ivy Manor. That membership website,, was fully active for over 14 years until she decided to take it off line. All content produced remains the sole property of Isabella Sinclaire (an extremely large amount of exclusive content, both photos and videos).

Also included in Isabella’s corporate portfolio is the AVN award winning fetish video production company, GwenMedia ( Isabella helped launch GwenMedia in 2001 with the world-famous Ivy Manor series, written and directed by John Fitzgerald. As the company became more popular, the website grew into its own entity as a latex fetish themed site, featuring many of today’s top fetish models in kinky scenarios. As owner of GwenMedia, Isabella also produced films, adding to the 120+ already in its catalog. While she is not currently producing films nowadays (with the exception of custom training video requests), many of her content can still be found on:

With all of this experience as a foundation, and from her insider’s view into the deepest recesses of people’s minds, both male and female, Isabella Sinclaire has gained an unparalleled knowledge and understanding of those who engage in BD/SM (Bondage, Discipline, Sadomasochism) activities. She remains very much a part of the fetish community and continues to hold lectures and training sessions, both privately and publicly throughout the world.

Safe, sane and consensual play has always been a primary element with Isabella and her clientele. To strengthen these principles in her rising community, and at the request of her clients, she began the Sinclaire Academy in 2008. With this institution, Isabella trained the next generation of women who expresses an interest in becoming a successful, professional dominatrix, upholding the same values that helped Isabella rise to the top. 

Isabella also teaches couples and group classes and holds public and private lectures upon request. Should this be of interest, you can get in touch with her through her Contact page.
