From S&M to Harassment Victim - A Most Unusal Twist of a Tale

Imagine your feelings at your new job when a supervisor is familiar -- because he was a client at your former job as a professional dominatrix. Thank goodness, at least you are in San Francisco. Former client becomes pushy, seeking "sessions" and other harassing behavior. Ex-domme strikes back, ultimately with sexual harassment suit that eventually settles for $35,000, $25,000 in attorneys' fees, reinstatement of 800 hours of leave time, a job transfer and the ability to work home one day a week. The employer -- the United States Treasury Department. You can check out all the details in the San Francisco Chronicle story of Mistress Celeste, nee Susan Peacher.

The former client is now retired and Peacher is now a leader in the local chapter of the National Treasury Employees Union. You really can't make this stuff up.
