Alexandra shows her dominant side to Adrian. ("Awakenings")
When the Powells throw a party for Marisol Suarez, in honor of her new book, Coming Clean, Alexandra attends, where she runs into Adrian. The two introduce themselves to one another, and Adrian asks if she knows Marisol. Alexandra states that she doesn't, but that a friend brought her, and that she's just in town for a couple of days; she asks what he does for a living. Adrian replies that he is independently wealthy, and that it takes up a lot of his time, but he finds it fulfilling. He proceeds to ask what it is she does for a living, and Alexandra states that she probably shouldn't talk about her work in polite company. Having heard this, Adrian now believes she has to tell her, and so Alexandra confesses that she is in fact a professional dominatrix. Adrian admits that he didn't expect that, and that she doesn't look like one. Alexandra questions how should she look, as she starts getting closer to Adrian, she asks if she should be wearing fishnet stockings or a leather corset with whips and chains. She begins pressing a toothpick against his chest, making him a bit uncomfortable. "I suppose so," he replies, nervously. Alexandra proceeds to drop the toothpick, and demands he pick it up. Adrian doesn't know what to make of this at first, but he ends up following orders, now intrigued. He addresses her as Alexandra at first, but is corrected that it's "Mistress Alexandra". She then commands that he get on his knees, which he does so; as he goes for the toothpick, she proceeds to step on his hand, forcefully with his shoe. Because of this, he is able to form an erection, and so he goes to find his wife immediately. ("Awakenings")
