Dyson says having a massage while on a trip to India reawakened her sexuality – and turned her into Britain’s naughtiest nun. And now, after quitting her Tibetan Buddhist monastery in France, she spends her weekends dressed in latex at fetish clubs. The 45-year-old woman 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.

But it wasn’t until she ended up in London in 2011 and passed the window of a shop selling fetish clothing that Ms Dyson realised wearing rubber could fill the Buddha-sized hole in her new life.
“I’d been a nun for ten years and was open to new opportunities so when I spotted the shop I thought ‘why not’ and headed inside,” she says. “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, of Wandsworth, London, UK, was 23 when she first thought about being a nun, but didn’t leave Melbourne, Australia, for Nepal until six years later. Despite her vows meaning she never had children Damcho – who is crowdfunding her PhD exploring human rituals – says 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.”
“I still feel a bit like a naughty nun" she says “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.”
