"I’m finally letting my hair down when I once used to shave it all off.”
A former attendant to the Dalai Lama is a completely renewed individual after receiving a massage in India that “reawakened her sexuality.” Damcho Dyson, a former Tibetan Buddhist monk, lived a simple life in a monastery in France for about ten years. After a trip to India, however, she rediscovered sexual passion and traded in her plain habit for skin-tight latex.
Some might judge Dyson, but she feels pleased with the transformation. The 45-year-old told the Sunday People:
“I’d been celibate for 10 years and, as a nun, my practice meant my brain was able to override my bodily needs. Lying there having that massage I had an epiphany. I suddenly had a sense of the vitality within my body and decided the time was right to leave the monastery.”
In addition to rekindling her sexuality, Dyson found herself empowered from wearing rubber. This was discovered after stepping into a shop that sells latex clothing. She said,
“The first time I tried on latex I felt empowered. It compliments the female form and somehow felt reminiscent of the ritual wearing of Buddhist robes. The shop owner and I became friends and she introduced me to the latex scene. I went to a club feeling all risqué, but I looked at other people wearing top-to-toe latex and rubber masks and realised I was actually quite conservative. I find the whole thing amazing and intriguing. It’s really liberating.”
Damcho grew up in Melbourne, Australia, and lives in South London. She was 23 when she first thought about becoming a nun and officially joined the convent six years later. She never had children and is presently crowdfunding her Ph.D. exploring human rituals. Most importantly, she has no regrets.
“I travelled around the Himalayas,” she says. “It was incredibly enriching and inspiring for me. But now I want to continue my contemplative adventure using a different medium.”
She says, “I still feel a bit like a naughty nun. But I’m a middle-aged woman who has always liked to express herself so why not? I’m finally letting my hair down when I once used to shave it all off.”
