Bloomingdale was known as a blunt, aggressive businessman, and he wasted no time telling Vicki what was expected of her.
Alfred arrived with a hooker named Samantha at their second Old World lunch. After they finished alfalfa-sprout salads, the threesome drove to a modest house on Sunset Plaza Drive.
En route, Samantha prepared Vicki with a girl-to-girl talk about Bloomingdale's "special needs" in the bedroom. He got off watching lesbian S&M sex, and he often joined in with whips and belts.
"He won't hurt you much," she said.
Vicki shrugged. She was sexually shock-proof after a few months with Earle Lamm.
Bloomingdale, Vicki and Samantha were greeted at the house by Mistress Kay, a rather brawny woman in black leather who lived there as a dominatrix-in-waiting.
In no time, Vicki was naked and trussed.
Throughout a long afternoon, the women exchanged roles — sadist, masochist, innocent victim, dominating oppressor — under the direction of Master Alfred's kinky baton.
Years later, Vicki would recall Alfred's stone-cold pillow talk after the session ended: "C'mon, let's go take a shower."
