OPP - Tibetan Nun turned Latex Lover

For ten years Damcho Dyson used to live a simple life of chastity and was once an attendant to the Dalai Lama. Her only habit was her plain religious robe but now she has swapped it for something quite different - latex rubber.

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.

“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.”

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.”

  1. That's a great story. I had a teacher at school - politics - who was a nun once - that changed when she was on her way back from some foreign country where she had been carrying out her godly duties, when a rather handsome black man offered to carry her bag. She married him!

    1. Was she in her nun's habit when she met him? That would have been a bit kinky!
