LOS ANGELES — Dominatrix, model and fetish star January Seraph has passed away.
The BDSM queen was known for her Kink.com performances, as well as her many “Latex Fashion TV” episodes, among so many other projects.
Seraph started her video work in 2008 as a Kink performer in “Whipped Ass,” and continued on to stardom as a disciplining mistress.
An outpouring of sympathy was made after news of her reported passing yesterday. Details of her death were not known at XBIZ post time.
Director Dee Severe of Severe Sex/Severe Society Films said that Seraph was “one of the most beautiful and amazing dommes ever.”
“[I] worked with her all the time when we were first starting out. Heartbroken,” Severe wrote on XBIZ.net.
Adult star Lexi Sindel wrote: “Another loss to the femdom community. Rest in peace, January Seraph."
“Rest in power, goddess,” adult publicist Kelly Shibari wrote.
On her website, JanuarySeraph.net, Seraph described herself as a “mercurial cunt, a pro dominatrix, an adult performer, a kinky adult video producer, a latex fetishist, a pervert with wanderlust, a dreamer, a doer, the id of some girl. I have a lot of projects. I have a lot of ideas, opinions and world views to share.”
“I love intensely. I hate just as intensely, though very rarely. I am kinky passion incarnate, my entire world revolves around alternative sexual practices and lifestyles.”
