Original Locations


For our tale, we've created some very unique places that fit in well in the Eastern Missouri area. Have a look and see what we have come up with. St. Louis is an incredibly diverse and busy city, and has everything imaginable within driving distance from several outlying areas. Would you want to check out any of these places? We certainly hope so.

Of course, along with original locations, there are several real locations that are featured in the novel, such as the St. Louis Arch, Historic Main Stree in St. Charles, MO, and more. Our hope is to show you a city that is very real and believable and places you feel as though you could step right into through the pages in our work.



Strawberry's Black


Strawberry’s Black is a Goth and Fetish club which includes a Dungeon for public and private play.  SB is the only Dungeon in the St. Louis area that allows full contact and public scenes involving sex.  The club has four levels. The club is constructed in an old brewery building.

The Ground level is the Dance club.  Here there is little to no scene play unless it is discreet.  Most the patrons in the ground level are there for the club music, drinking and mingling.  In the back of the dance floor, however, there are three rooms with fogged glass where the occupants can see out, but those on the outside can’t see in unless they are pressed right up against the glass, and even then the view inside is hazy and only shapes moving in the darkness can be scene.  This level has a stage where the DJ and house band perform, a large dance floor, several tables, a full bar, and a set of public restrooms.

The Second level, or Mingle Floor, is a section that overlooks the dance floor and is somewhat a meeting area and lounge for those who come to the club to consider visiting the lower levels or to simply mingle.  This is often the “show off” area of the club, where, while there is no active play, there are plenty of Doms/Dommes and their subs who come to relax in this area.  There is a small bar, two fireplaces, and plenty of couches and places to relax and watch the dance scene below.  The area is kept relatively quiet, though moderate discussion among patrons in encouraged.  The area is enclosed with sound proof glass, allowing the occupants to see out but they are not disturbed by the sound from the club below.  This area also allows people to see in.  There is a bouncer at the entrance to the stairs at all times.

The first basement level is a Play Area.  Similar to the upstairs section, it is a relaxed atmosphere but allows for play, both of the public and private variety.  There are three suites in the back which are free to use unless there is a posted booking.  The play area has a small stage for special public scenes to be played out.

The second basement level is the semi-public dungeon.  Only members gain access to this, the lowest level of the club.  Here, the club’s namesake, Strawberry has her professional set up.  Strawberry is a professional Domme and helps with training of younger subs and occasional Dom/mes new to the area.  Strawberry’s name comes from the head of vibrant strawberry red hair she has, as well as a fetish for food play, especially sweet fruits.  The name of the club comes from her preference for black in all things.

The club is owned and operated by Danica’s sister, Marissa Patrick.  Marissa is not a member of the scene, but she and her sister decided to go into business together.  They have found the marriage of their two loves, Marissa of the Goth scene, and Danica of the BDSM scene, has been profitable and a dream come true for both of them.



The Japanese Teahouse Tattoos and Piercings


Located in the suburban area of St. Charles, the Japanese Teahouse is a tattoo and piercing parlor.  All members of the staff are vetted and most of them are medically trained in some fashion.  The place is built along the Main Street area in an old shop building that has two levels.  The first level is the tattoo parlor.  A set of stairs in the back lead up to the more private piercing parlor.  They also do intimate tattooing in the upstairs area if a customer requests it.

The place is decorated to look like the interior an old style Japanese Teahouse brothel with red and black curtains and lanterns. 

Second Floor – Included in the second floor are a chair as well as a reclined table for piercing purposes.  Either can be used for intimate tattooing, however, only one tattoo artist does intimate tattoos and must be scheduled.  Everyone that performs piercing has some sort of medical training.  Intimate piercings are done on a scheduled basis.


First Floor – The tattoo portion of the place features two seats and one reclining table for tattooing purposes.  A wide variety of tattoos are done, including white, black light, black and white, and full color.  All artists take time with each client to ensure they are getting what they want.
