Slave to the Metal is an American television program on Fuse which premiered January 21, 2005. It was hosted by Juliya Chernetsky, known on the program as Mistress Juliya, who served as a therapist, answering fans' question on phone or voice message; however, a disclaimer during the show's opening stated that Juliya is not a professional therapist. Lying on a bed in a darkly lit room, Chernetsky frequently dressed in bondage attire and held a whip while giving advice in relation to sex, relationships, music, and other themes. Slave to the Metal ran a half hour, playing music videos in between Chernetsky's advice segments, which, in contrast to her previous shows, served as the main course of the program. Because of this, the videos, largely of the heavy metal genre, were often highly edited and shortened to make up for lack of time.
