Reba Maybury (1990) is an artist, writer and political dominatrix sometimes working under the name Mistress Rebecca. Her work explores the tension between her perceived strength as an object of fantasy and how through the reality of sex work she turns this power into something tangible. 

Much of her art practice is physically created by her submissive’s through her direction as a way to further the complicated imbalances of labour under sex work and attempt to empower her further than the mens desires, leaving her with more than just a payment from them. Her first novella is named ‘Dining with Humpty Dumpty (2017). Themes of capital, labour, sexuality, female perversion, bureaucracy as torture and corporate humiliation are essential themes to her practice.
