Victoria Durnak

The Mistress Dispeller

* Mistress dispellers are becoming increasingly popular in China
* They specialize in ending married men’s affairs with their lovers
* A mistress dispeller does this by befriending the mistress in question
* They might then get them a new job or a new lover elsewhere


Earlier this year, Victoria Durnak found out that her friend’s boyfriend was being unfaithful. At Podium, Durnak tells the story about what happened when she hired a mistress dispeller to save her friend’s relationship.

In Podium’s restroom you can also wash your hands with a soap that Miriam Myrstad has made from the ashes of the best-selling book by Dr. Gary Chapman «The 5 Love Languages – The Secret to Love That Lasts».
