Madam Lash – Gretel Pinniger’s Scandalous Life of Sex, Art and Bondage

Gretel first garnered attention as a life-drawing model in the late 1960s

Gretel Pinniger, dominatrix, fetishist, artist, and courtesan to the rich and famous has been shocking and outraging Australia for decades.                                      

Never shy of publicity, this introverted daughter of a handsome war hero from the Melbourne establishment once wanted to become a nun. Instead, she threw her leather-clad body into a w orld of sex, drugs and riotous parties. She danced with Elton John, catered to Clyde Packer’s more creative sexual fantasies and was supported by a fabulously wealthy patron, who bequeathed her a generous allowance so long as his name was never disclosed by her.                                                                                

In her 60's Gretel contracted Breast Cancer. This image captures the spirit of a women who pushed boundaries

Despite marrying and becoming a mother, there is nothing ordinary about the outlandish Gretel Pinniger. Join Sam Everingham as he takes you into the colourful reality of Australia’s most misunderstood eccentric. This is a portrait as revealing, provocative and outrageous as the Madam Lash persona which first captured Australia’s imagination.
