Default New Jersey Cop Fired For Being Dominatrix Says She Was Just Acting

A New Jersey sheriff’s officer who lost her job because several years ago she appeared in bondage films as a dominatrix refuses to apologize for the raunchy scenes.

Kristen Hyman told Inside Edition she didn’t view her previous vocation as an “embarrassing thing.”

“These are acting roles, filmed acting roles,” she said. “I am not 100 percent sure why anyone would think I should be embarrassed about it.”

She's not a sex worker, she just played on on TV.

“I am not 100 percent sure why anyone would think I should be embarrassed about it.” (from the article in the OP)

These kinds of comments drive me crazy. Not that she should be embarrassed but the pretense (and unless she's really stupid this is pretense) that she doesn't understand why others might have issues with something that she herself has no issues with. Come on. You don't have to agree that their POV is right but to act like you can't even figure out why they might feel the way they do?

However, she was fired earlier this month after department officials ruled she lied on her application by not disclosing she had worked as a dominatrix for hire, according to The New York Post.

Hyman insists she had nothing to hide since she had been an actress playing a character named Domina Nyx Blake, so she just wrote “actress/model” on the part of the form asking for past occupations.
If not listing "porn star" (or whatever they think she should have done) on the application is the root of the claim that she "lied" on her application, their claim sounds pretty weak. Unless they specified a list of job titles that she had to pick from, the titles she used sound correct. The 2010 Standard Occupational Classification System says:
Quote:
Actors - Play parts in stage, television, radio, video, motion picture productions, or other settings for entertainment, information, or instruction. Interpret serious or comic role by speech, gesture, and body movement to entertain or inform audience. May dance and sing.
Models - Model garments or other apparel and accessories for prospective buyers at fashion shows, private showings, or retail establishments. May pose for photos to be used in magazines or advertisements. May pose as subject for paintings, sculptures, and other types of artistic expression.
Neither the 2010 or the 2018 versions contain any specific categories or separations for sex workers.

CBS adds a line that HP left out, though.

The department suspended her six days before her academy graduation last year, saying she failed to disclose that she appeared in the films and sometimes saw clients privately for money.
If the clients were participating and not just a member of a private audience, I don’t think that’s technically scripted acting.

If her claim that she was not naked and didn't perform sex acts in the films is true, then I can't see how they could have expected her to claim she was a "porn star", even if that IS a legitimate job title.

Has she admitted to that, or is that just an unsubstantiated claim?

Assuming that there was no sex in those sessions*, still not an illegal action. Which brings up another question, are there other officers that have been disciplined** for failing to list, in specific detail, every single job that they have worked prior to being an officer? For example, I don't usually list the jobs I held during high school (fast food) or the first job I worked at after my schooling (auto parts store) as they have little impact on my IT career. If the police department found out about that, would they suspend me as they have her?

* AIUI, many dominatrixes don't have sexual contact with their clients.
** Not that kind.

Agreed. She has not been charged for any crimes, and maintains she hasn’t done anything illegal. The question her attorney said is the real issue is whether or not she lied on the application by calling herself an actress.

The whole “bringing embarrassment to the department” claim is ridicules, IMO. If she had broken the law I can see why she’d be disqualified from law enforcement. That’s a fair question. Otherwise this just sounds a lot like slut shaming.

I read an article where her lawyer made a comment that seemed to confirm it, but I can’t find it now and that lawyer is no longer on her team. So as it stands, it seems to just be a claim made by the sheriff’s office.
