Cookies with Chanta Rose

Pity the unsuspecting soul who assumes Chanta (pronounced Chant-uh, like a Gregorian chant) Rose is just as she appears. Chanta is classically, stunningly beautiful: very long honey blonde hair, a cherubic face, and a natural, breathtaking body.
From first glance she would seem to be a sweet, angelic girl. Donít be fooled - behind this dream lies the smartest, toughest and most demanding Domme and fetish content Producer in the Industry. Chanta Rose, co- owner and operator of Oakland, CAís Twisted Factory is the perfect example of the ''iron fist in the velvet glove.''
Native to Australia, Chanta travelled widely growing up and settled in London in 1998 to pursue a mainstream modeling career. During this very successful career she wrote a sex advice column for Fiesta Magazine, and tried her hand at being bound for a shoot. There was no going back from this point...Chanta has found her new direction and pursued it.
Being bound, suspended and subjected to forced orgasm, Chanta learned through subjective experience what worked and didnít work for the submissive model in terms of rigging. Quickly becoming an expert in many styles and methods of rope bondage led Chanta to San Francisco in 2002. She began Dominating on camera for Whippedass.com as well as directing and rigging for Wiredpussy.com, Waterbondage.com and MenInPain.com.
Twisted Factory was soon to follow. A joint venture between Chanta and Tony Pirelli, Twisted Factory is located in a former cottage cheese processing plant on the San Francisco Bay waterfront. The potential settings for shoots in the Factory are endless - thousands of square feet of industrial wasteland, enormous belt driven compressors (one shoot for fuckedandboud.com features the sub bound to the giant belt in an inverted position) and several very oddly decorated rooms. Shortly before my visit, Chanta and Tony had discovered a previously unnoticed multi-stall bathroom that already included a glory hole in one of the walls!
Twisted Factoryís future is summed up simply by Chanta; more. ''More sites, more employees...more.'' The network is certainly poised to head toward her goal...Twisted Factory features very talented and recognized models as well as Industry newcomers, and has taken a solid place in the online Fetish Entertainment market alongside San Francisco leviathan Kink.com.
Chanta is tough, but eminently fair by all accounts. She demands a great deal of her models and staff, but also treats them extremely well when they rise to the challenge. Models are provided with lunch on set during shooting days, and this hard-as-nails Producer/Director/Domme rarely fails to have cookies for the talent. Models are well looked after before, during and after shoots.
The demands she makes of her models are for quite specific, logical reasons...drug use on set is simply not tolerated due to the inherent dangers of the BDSM content being shot. The model needs to be completely clear headed at all times to report any impending injuries before they happen.
Because of the nature of the content, Chanta prefers to work with models in their early twenties for the submissive roles, old enough to handle the psychological stresses of a bondage scene, yet young, flexible and fit enough to tolerate the suspensions and strict immobilization that comprise rope bondage.
Were Chanta Rose given the chance to change anything she could about the Industry, it would be the elimination of the odious SR2257 documentation requirements and the associated bureaucracy. The time and money required to handle administrating SR2257 eats into time spent doing much more worthwhile things according to Chanta as well as most Directors and Producers.
According to Ms. Rose, the worst hotel room she's ever been in was in New York City - ''It was dilapidated, with a shower you would be more dirty after using than before and I shared it with a giant rat that I never saw but used to hear every night scampering loudly across the floor.'' The strangest food she's had are ''Witchety Grubs'', required eating for all Australian schoolchildren as part of their education in how to survive in the outback. She mentions that she is a fan of Moreton Bay Bugs, ''Weird looking shellfish that many foreigners never try but are fantastic.''
By all accounts, Chanta and Twisted Factory are an excellent company for capable, interested and professional models to work with. I spoke with several of their regular talent base and heard nothing but glowing reviews of the treatment and compensation provided. Chanta Rose is a unique entity in the world...beauty and intelligence, care, concern and cruelly. Whatever the situation calls for, this womanís got it.
