Diva Claudia's Biography
Sublime Lady Diva Claudia Varrin is an elegant, sophisticated, and mature Sensual Female Dominant, Diva and Fetishist.
More years ago than Diva Claudia cares to remember, a friend introduced her to "The Scene", and a lifelong personal passion for SM became a sojourn into the international world of BDSM. Diva Claudia's passion still burns hot and bright, fed by her encounters; not dulled by them Extensive training in both the psychological and physical aspects of the art of sensual female dominance was followed by well over a thousand fantasy sessions with submissives from around the world. Experience was enriched by Diva Claudia's voracious appetite for reading and research, and her passion to explore the paths of spirituality that can be opened through romantic, consensual SM. Diva Claudia believes that with a responsible partner, the SM fantasy arena can be a safe place to heal old conflicts, to change, and to grow.
Varrin took a leave from domination when she was featured in a New York Magazine article on SM and subsequently contacted by a literary agent about writing a "how-to" book on romantic BDSM. The Art of Sensual Female Dominance: A Guide for Women, was released by Carol Publishing in April 1998 in hard cover, and is now available in trade paperback at major book chains and specialty shops.
Varrin's second book, Erotic Surrender: the Sensual Joys of Female Submission, was written to empower women with submissive sexual preferences and make them feel pride in their submissive state. From Citadel Press, NYC, it was released in April of 2001 and is currently available in hard cover and trade paperback editions from all the same sources.
Diva Claudia's third book, A Guide to New York's Fetish Underground, was released in December of 2002. NYFU is the ultimate guide to fetish shopping and events in New York City. NYFU will take you to all of the best places to shop for fetish clothes, shoes, wigs, tiaras, uniforms of all types, BDSM societies and clubs, events that are staged weekly, monthly and yearly, where to buy books, toys, and videos, and where to eat, drink, and be merry while wearing latex!

Varrin's exciting fourth book, entitled Female Dominance: Rituals and Practices, takes The Art of Sensual Female Dominance up to the next level.

Female Submission 1: The Journey of Madelaine is part one of the pre-quel to Erotic Surrender. It relates Varrin's exploration of the submissive side of her nature while she was a "sexual slave" to a well-known British Master. Written from the journals she kept every day, this highly erotic book will give the reader an in-depth look at the deconstruction of ego and its succesive downward spiral to explore the darkest side of Varrin's submissive and masochistic fantasies. Private one-on-one enactments, public scenes, and playtimes at private dungeon parties will titillate readers from all walks of BDSM. This book is due out in hard cover edition in October, 2006.
Also planned for release in 2006 is an updated revision of The Art of Sensual Female Dominance: A Guide for Women, featuring a new shopping chapter rather than list of shops; a fully revised foot fetish chapter; an update on latex care; several detailed, step-by-step sample sessions, and more.
