Dominatrix operates ‘dungeon’ in downtown Orlando neighborhood

(WKMG.COM) ORLANDO, Fla. – On her website, self-proclaimed dominatrix Judith DeLucenay promises customers they will reach their “pain threshold” while being subjected to activities such as flogging, torture, electrical stimulation and corporal punishment.

Those fetish activities are conducted in DeLucenay’s “dungeon” in Orlando, according to the online advertisement, which reportedly includes a cage in the backyard. Click here to see her website.

The website shows a photograph of a home on Grant Street, a residential area in the city’s SoDo neighborhood located a few blocks west of Boone High School.

Now, as a result of neighbor complaints and a Local 6 investigation, Orlando’s code enforcement division and Central Florida’s vice squad have launched their own investigations into the business, which does not have a home occupational license.

“It’s scary,” said Emma Scott, who lives across the street from the house where the dominatrix claims she invites clients to participate in bondage and sadomasochistic activities. “I have a daughter. And God knows what guys are going in there, and who they are, and what they’re looking for.”

There are no laws in Florida that prohibit consenting adults from hiring a dominatrix for services as long as there is no sexual contact that might constitute prostitution, according to law enforcement officials.

DeLucenay’s website warns potential customers “DO NOT ASK FOR SEX,” explaining that she will “never perform illegal sexual acts.”

The Metropolitan Bureau of Investigation, which focuses on vice-related offenses such as prostitution and illegal adult entertainment, announced that it was investigating DeLucenay’s business after Local 6 inquired about the Orlando woman’s website. A representative for the multi-agency task force did not elaborate on what concerns it may have.

DeLucenay’s home on Grant Street sits less than a half-mile from Boone High School. An MBI representative was not immediately able to say whether a dominatrix business would fit the legal definition of an “adult entertainment establishment,” which is prohibited by Florida law from being within 2,500 feet of a public or private school.

In the past month, the city of Orlando’s Code Enforcement Division has received three complaints about a woman running a sex business out of the home, according to city spokeswoman Cassandra Lafser. After each complaint, code enforcement officers visited the home to investigate but found no evidence of violations, she said.

However, city officials were unaware of DeLucenay’s website, which details the alleged activities inside the home, until Local 6 mentioned it while inquiring about the complaints, according to Lafser.

DeLucenay does not have an occupational license to run a business out of the home on Grant Street, nor would the city issue such a permit to someone wishing to operate a business similar to the one described on DeLucenay’s website, said Lafser. The city of Orlando prohibits adult entertainment, escort services, massage parlors, clothes modeling and private clubs from being operated from homes, according to the city records.

After receiving an anonymous tip about suspicious activity at the home, Local 6 positioned a camera across the street from the house Thursday. The home is unoccupied most of the time except for a few hours at night and on weekends, according to neighbors.

Around 6:20 pm., DeLucenay arrived by herself and walked inside. About a half-hour later, a man drove up, parked on the front lawn and went inside the house. Local 6 was unable to determine whether the man was a client or merely an acquaintance of DeLucenay’s.

A little more than an hour later, DeLucenay emerged from the house and rolled a trash can to the street. She was wearing shiny knee-high boots similar to ones that she wears in photographs posted on her dominatrix website. Yet when DeLucenay and the man came outside a few minutes later and got into separate cars to leave, she had changed into different shoes that looked like the ones she was wearing when she first arrived.

Activity similar to that captured by Local 6′s cameras is reportedly what prompted at least one anonymous neighbor to file complaints with the city and law enforcement.

Minutes after DeLucenay left the house on Grant Street, Local 6 found her car parked in front of another house that she owns about a block away. Delucenay did not wish to speak with a Local 6 reporter about her dominatrix business.

“No, but thank you,” said DeLucenay as she closed the door.

“It’s not something I’m comfortable with. Not around my children,” said Emma Scott, who originally assumed that the house across the street was being used by vacationers visiting theme parks because of cars with various out-of-state license plates parked there on weekends. “It’s not welcome here at all.”
