Looked for: (1) "bibliohomunculus", "biliohumunculus", "bibliometry", "bibliometrics" etc.(2) "Professional dominatr/ice/ix", "dominatrix", "dominatrice", etc. etc.
1) A question for the librarians: I know that bibliohomunculi are a form of bibliometrics for studying trends and information in various literary fields. The problem is that I have no idea what a bibliohomunculus actually IS. I understand bibliometry, but I would like to know the actual complexities behind homunculi.
2) I have a character who's a part-time professional dominatrix. She's a college-student, making money on the side. No sex is involved, with shiny-boots and making submissive businessmen beg and be whipped are probably the highlight of the evening. Is this normal or stereotypical? I am knowledgable enough to write about D/s relationships and BDSM, but the professional side of dominatrices are alien to me. Such questions I need answered are: what are the laws on non-sexual 'prostitution' (for lack of a better word) in Massachusetts? Is it more of a business, with customers phoning up a central 'madam' and then she doles out jobs, like an escort service? Is it more often for these businesses to work out of a single location or do dommes meet their clients in hotels or a location of the client's choice? Any more info would be helpful on this.
Thanks in advance.
