Dominatrix-turned-cop takes spanking from new bosses

NEW Jersey sheriff Kristen Hyman is undergoing a legal spanking after her bosses found out she once worked as a dominatrix.

Hyman, who was recently sworn in as a member of the Hudson County Sheriff's Office, is facing a disciplinary hearing where she will have to fight for her career against claims that her status as an ex-whip mistress disgraces the organisation, the Jersey Journal reported.

The trouble started last month, just six days before Hyman was to graduate from the police academy, when her bosses became aware that she held the kinky job between 2008 and 2012 - and had even made some steamy, R-rated bondage videos.

Hyman is described in the online videos as "a true sexual sadist who hurts people not because she has to, but because it truly brings her pleasure," according to filings by the sheriff's lawyers, the Journal said.

In the videos, she's seen wielding items "such as whips, and kicking the groin area to inflict pain upon the recipient. In most cases the recipient is naked and/or bound", according to court documents in the case.

Hyman was suspended without pay May 26 because the sheriff's office said her past, which she failed to disclose, is an embarrassment to the force, and that she failed to disclose "that she ... sometimes saw clients privately for money".

But a judge later reinstated her and let her graduate from the academy. She is now facing a June 27 hearing when her job will be on the line.

James Lisa, one of Hyman's lawyers, acknowledged the videos his client made might be cringe-worthy, but says they shouldn't cost her her career. "The videos are clearly inflammatory, but there is nothing illegal," he told the Journal.

He also said she injured her leg during her time at the academy and had to undergo surgery.

Prosecutors in Hudson County have declined to press any charges against Hyman. She has completed all required training and has no disciplinary marks other than the current case, her lawyers said.

In an exclusive interview with The Post, Hyman admitted she starred in dozens of kinky bondage films during her four-year career in the fetish trade, but insisted she never performed sex acts or doffed her costumes.

"I'm not embarrassed because I can own up to things I've done in the past," declared Hyman, 30.

"I'm mortified. I'm scared," Hyman said of the upcoming administrative hearing. "I don't know what it has to do with me doing the job."

As her latex-clad alter-ego, "Domina Nyx Blake", Hyman would humiliate and subjugate naked men - not to satisfy a personal fetish, but to pay the bills. "I was struggling financially as an actress [and model]," she said. "I had been doing regular catalogues for clothing, small stuff."

Someone told her making the kinky videos was a "good wage" and "you didn't have to compromise in any sort of way". "It was a safe thing and a kind of way to explore acting," she said. "It was a totally ridiculous world."

The rookie cop insisted it "was exactly like WWE wrest­ling". "I had a constructed narrative. A constructed character. Anything you read involving 'Domina Nyx Blake, the Greek Goddess of the Night', is creative writing," she said.

In one video, called "Domina NYX Beatdown", the raven-haired Hyman, dressed in a black bra and leggings and puffing a cigarette, slaps, punches and curses out a bearded, balding man. "It sucks to be him," the ­168cm, 68kg seductress snarls, placing her chubby submissive in a headlock.

At one point in the 21-minute clip, the choking man tries to "tap out" like a vanquished wrestler. "I don't know what that means. Are you doing morse code?" she taunts.

Dismissing the role play as "stupid stuff I did as a kid", ­Hyman said "the majority of the videos are ridiculously funny". "It's super-cheesy stuff. Everything I'm doing is wink-wink," she said.

"I think it's pretty clear that you can see that nobody is ­injured. A number of videos involve the same people over and over again. There would be a costume change, and then we'd do another one."

She'd wield whips, chains and even boxing gloves to mete out punishment. Hyman would not say how many S&M flicks she made or what she was paid. She said the low-budget flicks were filmed in Manhattan and Florida, and she'd often have to drive to the Sunshine State.

And she provided her own costumes - often off the rack at Party City.

"I even purchased an Iron Man costume at a Target in Florida!" she recalled. "Me walking in declaring 'I'm Iron Man?' How sexy is that?"

She had a husband during that period, but her 2008 marriage was annulled in 2013. She would not discuss her ex-husband other than to say, "We just didn't mesh." She mentioned an abusive ex-boyfriend but would not elaborate. Hyman's lawyer believes an ex-boyfriend may have tipped off a friend at the sheriff's office about her past.

Her parents, Raymond and Laura, knew about her secret life before the sordid story broke and "support me", she said, but added they are upset by the publicity.

The lurid comments Hyman has seen online after her story went viral have left her shaken. "I'm trying right now not to look at the internet. It's pretty painful for me," she said. "I'm afraid for my safety right now."

Hyman began to weep when shown photos that are now popping up on mainstream media. "I don't want to be judged on what I did in the past and not who I am now," she said.

Who she is now, she said, is a dedicated public servant. She worked for several years as a 911-system operator before being trained as an EMT. But the Bayonne, New Jersey, native - who also has lived in Brooklyn, Staten Island and Florida - said she has dreamt of being a ­police officer "forever".

Her lawyer said she deserves to keep her hard-earned job. "I just want the world to see this young lady as she is," Mr Lisa said. "She's not a carnival sideshow. She's a woman committed to law enforcement. The biggest question is, 'Did she lie in her application?' She did not. She said she was a model, photographer and an actress."
