  • Summary

  • Please note: contains strong language and adult content.

    Meet Miranda. She is a cheerful and happy-go-lucky single girl who just happens to be a dominatrix with a dungeon in her flat where she services clients with flogging and extreme correction and (if she's lucky) gets the occasional slave to pay her for the honour of doing her vacuuming. 

    When she's not delivering 30 lashes to the sensitive parts of religious zealots or doing step aerobics in stilettos on the buttocks of retired army officers, she is just trying to get on with the neighbours and make her flatmate, Dan, realise that in spite of what he may think of her job, she could just be the girl of his dreams (and not just his nightmares). 

    This a refreshingly funny and joyfully rude sitcom that proudly celebrates sex, nonconformity, and doing the wrong thing.

    As an Audio Show - free for members - when you add Slaving Away to your library, you'll get all 6 episodes, each with a runtime of about 30 minutes.

  • Ep. 6: Driving Test

    Mar 23 2018

    [Contains explicit content] In Episode 6, Miranda finally sits her driving test. But on the morning of the test, she is completely thrown by a surprising and unexpected houseguest, wearing one of her flatmate Dan's T-shirts and making herself more than at home. Celebrating her test (we're not saying she passes by the way), more might be exposed than even Miranda is comfortable with. Dreams are espoused and plans are hatched to escape the city in this first season finale.

  • Ep. 5: Rumbled

    Mar 23 2018

    [Contains explicit content] In Episode 5, Miranda gets a warning that her secret life as a dominatrix might soon stop being quite so secret. She suspects it's the work of her nemesis, Mistress Laveen. Although business is affected by the bad reviews, she also ends up getting some of her weirdest clients yet, who yearn to be treated every bit as poorly as the troll reviews suggest.

    When she discovers that the person responsible isn't Mistress Laveen, but someone who had previously wasted her time, she takes great pleasure in making his life a misery.

    Mar 23 2018

    [Contains explicit content] In Episode 4, Miranda suffers a workplace injury while grappling with an Australian wrestler with a fetish for...?

    Chastised for making the flat smell too much of vapour rub, she gets her arse in gear and begins to do her accounts... an exercise that involves her being tortured more than she's ever tortured a client. Once she's back on her feet, she agrees to go on a rare date with a sexually charged client, only to discover he's painfully dull with his clothes on.

Fruity Chuckles!

In truth I didn't warm to this immediately as so many other reviewers seem to have. I was going to go for four stars but when a female dominatrix demands five stars off you during the closing credits what else can you do but obey?

Sure this isn't for the squeamish but it has some bloody funny moments and I think it got better as it went along and in fact many of the best lines were in the final episode.

Personally apart from Miranda herself I think the driving instructor was the star of the show, he has some absolutely cracking lines. Some of it was a bit overdone such as the next door neighbours who I could have done without but as a way to cleanse the aural pallet between grisly crime thrillers and zombie apocalypses an episode of this seemed to work a treat for me.

It's like a sexy Black Books for your ears

I didn't know what to expect when I first downloaded this, but after listening to all episodes I now, medically, need more! Very funny, great writing, with enough incite into a sex-workers world without going over the top… and that 4th wall break!

Give Miranda a 2nd season! Then some more!

Brilliant! Funny and well performed.

This was a great surprise! The actors were great and the main characters likeable and identifiable with. It's not explicit though it is about a sex worker but the sex is more "meta" than actual.

Marvellous Listen

What did you like most about Slaving Away?

It seemed very real, as I am sure it was given the background of the author. made me laugh out loud, especially the fetishes that people asked for.

What other book might you compare Slaving Away to, and why?

I don't think I have ever come across a book like it, that's why we should have another series.

Have you listened to any of the narrator’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No, follow on twitter, but will look out for more material, in fact I did listen to a radio interview
after the Edenborough festival so yes

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Deffo made me laugh

Any additional comments?

Bring on the next series, and quick snap about it...what oh!

Loved it... especially Dan

For a free show, i really liked this. Narration was great. Loved all the London/UK based references and Dan had the best lines.
People on the train kept wondering why i would suddenly break out in smiles/laughter.
The only thing i wasnt happy with is that it was only 6 epidodes.. like most british TV series. I WANT MORE!!!

Brilliantly Funny

What did you like most about Slaving Away?

All of it! It was hilarious and so relatable

What did you like best about this story?

All of the characters were amazing and I loved Miranda & Dan's friendship.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I really enjoyed what the Brigadier said in the review. Oh, and the hilarity of the fetish market, especially the "piggy" bit. Err, and the neighbours... so weird, but so very funny.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely! I listened to the whole thing as I was doing the housework and was hoping to find more episodes.

Any additional comments?

I could listen to this cast everyday. They were entertaining, hilarious and I can't wait for more!

Plays out of order

My issue is with Audible, they don't play them in order continuously. Playback switches around regardless of what you have already listened to. Story is hilarious, intriguing, and informing.

A very cool look into a world not often explored

I very much enjoyed this frank look into modern sex work. I found the characters relatable, and I am sad that it's over. I hope to listen to more content soon!

A cheeky delight from across the pond

This series gets better with every episode. My only gripe was the women who disdain other successful women but It circled back around. It's not smutty but it is funny and very smart. Hoping to catch you in the next series.

Love this series!

Funny and witty. When I tell people about it I describe it as Bridget Jones meets the life of dominatrix. Worth the listen and hope there is more to come!
