“SHE DIPS HER TALON IN YOUR BRAIN AND STIRS THE CONTENTS IDLY, SMILES TO SEE YOUR AGONY, STOPS TO TRY THE TASTE OF PAIN. SAVOURING YOUR ESSENCE ON THOSE LIPS— THAT MOUTH AND YOU, LOST SOUL IN HEL YOU BEG HER TO BEGIN AGAIN TO DIP, TO STIR, TO TASTE AGAIN. YOU BEG TO BE HER SACRIFICE, TO KISS EACH NAIL UPON HER TOES, BE THAT INITIATE WHO KNEELS IMPALED ON HER STILETTO HEELS. BECOME THE ACOLYTE WHO KNOWS, THE SECRET OF THE FALL OF MAN, THE CULT THAT IS THE MORRIGAN.” —SLAVE O
YOU’VE SEEN THIS GODDESS BEFORE. PERHAPS IT WAS ONSTAGE WITH MOTÖRHEAD, PLAYING WITH FIRE. OR POSSIBLY IN FLICKS LIKE 3’S A SHROUD, NATURE MORTE OR JUDGE DREDD. OF COURSE IT COULD HAVE BEEN THE HOURS YOU SPENT STARING AT HER LUSCIOUS MILKY WHITE BAPS ON YOUR LAPTOP AT WORK. BUT MAYBE, JUST MAYBE, THE REASON IS THE SAME REASON YOU’RE WALKING FUNNY: THE BITCH BEAT YOUR ASS. MEET MORRIGAN HEL. WORLD-CLASS DOMINATRIX, FETISH MODEL, STAGE PERFORMER, MUSICIAN AND ACTOR. OH, AND SHE’S CRAZY HOT TOO.
We imagine you growing up with strict parents and being spanked a lot.
Ha! Quite the opposite, actually. My father was a biker and horror film enthusiast, and my mum, she was a hippie. I was brought up in a liberal, unconventional household out in the middle of nowhere in Wales, England.
Ah, Wales, the fetish capital of the world.
Hardly. I moved to London when I was seven, after my parents separated. By the time I was 15, I was modeling at London fetish clubs and events. The scene was very underground back then; the term fetish model was pretty much unheard of. There used to be a lot of prejudice within the modeling world toward women like me having tattoos and piercings. Now the scene is positively thriving. My first site went up in 2000, when there were very few alt/fetish/gothic models with websites. Now, 16 years later, there are thousands.
