Alexis Lass’s well-rounded education took place at the Spence School, the Kent School, Bard College, University of Bologna, and the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. She worked as a Certified Yoga Instructor and did some stage and television work in New York City before taking on a brief stint as a pro Dominatrix.
For five years, Lass owned and operated her own fetish film production company in Manhattan. Her film Infernali won Best Picture Award at the Traum Film Festival in Germany, and the trailer was in the winner’s circle for the best horror film trailer at the Paranoia Film Festival in Los Angeles.
In partnership with Penthouse Magazine, Lass ran fetish parties at Chris Noth’s Cutting Room lounge in Manhattan, earning a Page Six spread of party pics in the New York Post as well as live video coverage on its website. She was featured in Katie Roiphe’s essay collection, In Praise of Messy Lives, and in a story by Roiphe on Slate.com. She has also been featured in The New York Post and The New York Times and has appeared on Entertainment Tonight.
Lass categorizes herself as “proper Bohemian,” resides on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, is active with animal rights groups, and volunteers with a cat rescue group.
