It’s impossible for the femdom devotee not to have seen something of OWK* on the Net. From photos and videos all over the Net we are all by now very well-acquainted with the white walls of the palace exterior, the endless wooden-floored corridors and the vast halls with leather-clad ladies and their devoted naked slaves. Decent folk like yourself will probably have bought a membership to their website. Some might even have stayed for a holiday or attended the events participating in the occasional festivals. Anyone under 30 will hardly remember when it did not exist – it seems so long now since they started.
I remember my first contact was when I had come into the offices of Zeitgeist (one of the better femdom magazines at the time and only running for a few issues) somewhere round 1997 and was told there was a package for me. I opened a heavy envelope to find a beautifully produced book and a selection of well printed colour magazines with an accompanying letter explaining who they were and a description of their castle and vast complex of surrounding buildings.
It was extraordinary to see something so lavishly crafted coming from a country which had only recently thrown off the shackles of communism, and from someone totally unknown in the West. I asked around the people I knew – like Skin Two – if they knew anything about them. They too had received a package but were none the wiser. I was hesitant to make contact at first when I was commissioned to produce a number of watercolours for their magazine and thereafter a few black and white line drawings. But all went through without any complications though I did not form any close association either; our negotiations were straightforward but formal. There was talk of murals for a room but that never realised.
Sadly I never had the opportunity to go there myself but enjoyed hearing the adventures of others who did. After some years of an uncertain future I believe the premises itself is no longer functioning but the website is still in existence.
