Dominatrix Wins $1.5 Million Lawsuit Blaming Brain Injury for Getting Into Sex Work

Dominatrix Wins $1.5 Million Lawsuit Blaming Brain Injury for Getting Into Sex Work: Sasha Mizaree

Brain trauma can cause a lot of painful consequences for victims. Whether it’s headaches, reduced mental capabilities and/or memory loss, it can be a difficult experience. But did you know it can also lead you into a life as a sex worker? That’s exactly what happened to one Canadian dominatrix, and she even has a court judgment to prove it.

Alissa Afonina was a high-achieving high-school student hoping to become a director or an actress. However right before her senior year began, she was involved in a car accident that changed her life forever. According to Elite Daily, when she returned to school she would “regularly disrupt class, use sexually inappropriate and ultimately could not complete her work.” She eventually dropped out of school and began a career as a Dominatrix with the name “Sasha Mizaree,” proving the car accident didn’t affect the part of her brain that generates puns.

Sasha and her family decided to sue her ex-boyfriend, who had been the driver during the accident, claiming that the injuries she suffered made it impossible for her to keep a regular job and made her life unstable. Her lawyers argued that the brain injury kept her from engaging in “correct thinking,” which is why she works a career that involves sex acts that can cause her physical harm. This is opposed to the “correct thinking” that was leading her towards pursuing a career in acting, which is clearly a slam dunk track to success.

Candian Judge Joel Grove ruled in favor of Sasha, saying that her brain injury caused her to engage in unsafe behavior and prevents her from doing anything more than entry-level work, whereas before the accident she was an excellent student with a higher ceiling for success. He granted Sasha a $1.5 million judgment.

Unfortunately, money won’t be able to reverse Sasha’s condition. But it will allow her to purchase a lot of new toys to really take her to the top of the Dominatrix business, which will almost certainly see a giant boom in light of the upcoming release of the Fifty Shades of Grey movie.
