Even though many individuals inside her situation might elect to get a fresh roomie, Jennifer, whom now had the full household at her complete disposal, made a decision to get a various path. When you look at the living room of her apartment, she did one thing she had always wished for doing: She built her very own dungeon dedicated to bondage, domination, sadism and masochism (better called BDSM).
While residing in Florida, Jennifer (whoever title happens to be changed to guard her privacy) had Bing searched вЂњHow in order to make moneyвЂќ and landed on a typical page about BDSM dungeons. She began reading concerning the continuing company and began operating one part-time. With out a household to phone her very own, though, her dungeon struggled to show a profit. Then she relocated to Brooklyn, and temporarily threw in the towel the business. However with her roomie now goneвЂ”and 1,750 square foot at her disposalвЂ”Jennifer made a decision to take advantage of the ability and re-open store. During the time, she had been having to pay $1,800 per month in lease for the three-bedroom duplex in Park Slope, and she didnвЂ™t have a regular revenue stream.
