The Supreme Court of British Columbia ruled earlier this month that Alissa Afonina, who works as a dominatrix, should be awarded $1.53 million since it was established that she suffered a brain injury after a car accident she was involved in.

Before the 2008 car crash, Alissa was a promising student who dreamed of being a filmmaker. The accident took place on Highway 1 near Salmon Arm. She was in the car with her family and a man who was her mother’s boyfriend at the time, was behind the wheel. The car ended up in a ditch and Alissa suffered a moderate brain injury.

The court ruled that her subsequent changes in behavior and personality were a direct result of the brain injury. She became lethargic, had poor memory and impulse control and her social behaviour was questionable. Once a bright student, she dropped out of school.

Sometime before the trial, Alissa started working as a dominatrix and generally started exhibiting unusual sexual behaviour.

As the experts agreed, the brain injury affected her cognitive abilities, especially the ones that control safety measures and risk assessment, which basically made Alissa careless towards her own safety and drove her towards high-risk behavior.

According to the court, her career choice as a dominatrix was, therefore, a consequence of the brain injury. Alissa’s lawyers argued that engaging in such a reckless and potentially risky profession proved that she, to put it bluntly, didn’t know any better, which, in such a bright and promising young woman, could only be the result of brain trauma.
