To this day, financial fetish and domination is one of the most misunderstood power play experiences, even by those who practice it. Like any expression of power, it has the potential for abuse and has gotten a rather bad rap because of the exploitation possibilities.

Discover a deeper understanding of the intersection of money, kink, and control with world-renowned expert and author, Princess Kali.

Spend two days in a fully immersive workshop diving into the whys and hows of ethical financial domination.

Transform your professional approach to financial domination with personalized insight, an environment of encouragement and support, and the opportunity to develop an authentic, ethical approach to exploring financial fetish with your clients and submissives.

With the two-day Ethical Financial Domination: Virtual Intensive, you’ll turn doubt and confusion into confidence and understanding when it comes to incorporating financial play into your unique brand in a way that appeals to your unique clients.

This event is designed for ProDommes, Cam Models, Phone Sex Operators,
and other erotic professionals only.

Very Limited Space — to ensure a well-curated experience for everyone attending, approval is required before purchasing your seat.

Princess Kali’s class on Ethical Financial Domination helped me understand the different dynamics of FinDom. The class had so much information! Princess Kali is great at breaking down information into subsections for easy understanding. Highly recommend this class.

Meet Princess Kali

Princess Kali has spent nearly twenty years exploring not only the how but the why of taboo erotic desires.

During Kali's experience working as a successful professional dominatrix, she naturally integrated ethical financial domination into her client relationships and cultivated many personally collared submissives who found joy in financial servitude.

Common misconceptions about financial domination often contribute to the abuse that both kinksters and vanilla folks associate with money-kink. As an educator and proud FinDomme, Kali is passionate about helping consenting adults participate in financial fetish play more safely and enjoyably.

Her dynamic and engaging style of presenting has been welcomed at more than 150 venues, including kink events such as Dark Odyssey, Fetish Fair Fleamarket, Kink in the Caribbean, and IMsL, as well as mainstream venues such as Harvard University and SXSW.

As the founder of, she is a pioneer of the “kinktrepreneur” business model, creating sites such as Kink Academy, Passionate U, and Fearless Press for easy access to adult sex and BDSM education. Most recently, she launched the Red Key Club, a business and marketing school for sex workers.

She’s also the author of 6 books: Enough To Make You Blush: Exploring Erotic Humiliation and companion workbook; Authentic Kink; 365 Days of Kink Journal; The Yes, No, Maybe Workbook; and Making Bank: A Money Management Workbook for Erotic Entrepreneurs, along with the upcoming ProDomme Playbook.

Her work continues to inspire and support many other SWers, kink educators, writers, and enthusiasts.

I feel like my entire perception of being a Domina has been altered for the better with this workshop. Not just by the in-depth dissection of Financial Dominance, but also with the gentle encouragement to reexamine all of my long held beliefs about money and abundance. The time on Zoom listening to Princess Kali speak was time well spent.

What if I’ve already attended your shorter financial domination class?

The ninety-minute or two-hour classes* Kali teaches online and at conferences barely scratch the surface of the depth and breadth of topics under the money-kink umbrella. In the short format, there is little time for Kali to answer questions or share any kind of personalized info.

What have past attendees said about the experience?

This class felt both affirming and inspirational. Princess Kali teaches things in a style that doesn't feel overwhelming, yet is jam-packed with the foundational ideas, themes, and framework that create a sustainable practice. Through this course, I was able to immediately identify places in my own career that were working well, which reassured my near-constant 'imposter syndrome', make a concrete plan to improve the things that weren't working so well, and get excited about future projects and ideas which had before felt a bit out-of-reach."


Miss Shayla

Kali has an amazing talent and passion for teaching and educating. Her well thought out, finely developed classes and materials are evidence of all the hard work she puts into developing them.

It was one of the most life-giving experiences I've ever had, professional or personal. The format was intense (duh!) but paced beautifully, even for me as someone with both autism & ADHD, and the workbook is a veritable treasure map and made it so much easier to relax and be present to the moment even as someone who will occasionally struggle with audio processing.
Everyone was professional, enthusiastic, open and welcoming, and Princess Kali's instructional style is super entertaining, relatable, *and* informative, which I loved. I learned so much about myself and the depth of the skill I already had, where I could grow, *and* the frameworks presented helped take all the life-sucking guessing games out of that process and formulating a vision for how I'd like to play with subs. I know I will absolutely make back my investment.
Additionally, as a Black femme, it was a breath of fresh air to be seen and to have my unique concerns and actual, material challenges discussed and addressed in a way that didn't feel dismissive, belittling, or unsafe.
If you're thinking of working with Princess Kali - for coaching, for classes, buying her books - absolutely DO. I have worked for myself for 10+ years and have been through all sorts of training, etc., and Princess Kali's work is easily the best I've encountered.

It was really affirming to have myths exposed and learn about the different archetypes of finsubs/what to expect for each. Knowing these things will greatly assist in many forms of my business including content, live sessions, ideal client/finsub profile and more. I also really liked that it was for verified Pros only, with cam/headphones on for a sense of privacy. It felt safe and professional.


Princess Hime

Princess Kali is one of the most generous educatrices I have come across in my practice as a professional and lifestyle Domina. Her workshops are accessible, thoroughly researched, entertainingly presented and bursting with the mountain of practical knowledge and wry observations she has collected throughout her justly celebrated career. My own views and approaches to professional and personal domination have been greatly enriched by her and I can say nothing more except, Thank You, Princess!

It was very informative and also helped me gain more perspective on the different elements of FinDom that I didn't know before. I think that as a beginner at times I felt like I was trying to be someone I was not to fit into the stereotypes that I felt I should be. However, I learned that I should use my personality to control the energy and provide an authentic experience within that. I will keep that in mind when I approach certain archetypes.

I've been a part of Princess Kali's Red Key Club for months now, and I'm still digesting the webinars there, and I've also done most of her other online courses too. I did her two-hour Ethical FinDom workshop, and when she said she was holding an intensive, I was breaking down the Zoom door to sign up. The thing that I love about Kali's teaching style is that it is 'no bullshit'. I love education; in fact, it's almost kind of a fetish of mine, and there's nothing more annoying than paying to hear someone brag and aimlessly chat with participants. I want the meaty education, and that's what Kali delivers, every single time, and in a way that is approachable, fun, welcoming and incredibly supportive. Not only does Kali create community in her classes but she also stays on point and over delivers, always. The Ethical FinDom intensive was indeed intense. It was jam packed full of all the amazing stuff that I really wanted to understand; the psychology, behaviors, archetypes, safety, protection, language, approaches, but more than that and something I've never seen before…ETHICS. I never thought I'd see those words put together in a sentence, and certainly not a class, but I'm so grateful that I did, and that was why I jumped straight in and signed up immediately. Thank you, Kali. Your classes are always incredibly valuable, and you are an excited breath of fresh air who I cherish dearly.

The best thing was feeling empowered and motivated afterwards to update my website copy and decide what I want, and it allowed me to understand my own money story and how language affects feelings.
