Bound with ropes, Cassandra Cain is immobilized in a chair with a calm smile on her face as we warm her up with six canes of gradually decreasing thickness. Every now and then she wiggles her toes with dark-polished nails. Cassandra keeps looking amused but finally three quarters of the way into the clip she lets out an “oww!” as the grin fades temporarily. We put her in a blindfold and this seems to break down her defenses a bit too. Although shes back to her cool attitude for her ultimate countdown for 50 strokes, she’s definitely finally feeling the sting on those helplessly trapped feet!
