Outi Alanne (born 4 May 1967, in Oulu[1]) is a Finnish writer, also known by the pseudonym NeitiNaru.[2][3]

In 1995, Alanne started studying literature, art history, Finnish language and theatre in the University of Helsinki. As a student she also worked as an intern archiver at the Finnish Literature Society.[2] In her thirties, after a period of introspection following the divorce from a failed relationship, she found herself in a new relationship with a dominant male, and discovered her masochist self.[3]

In 2000, she started a website called NeitiNarun Ihmeellinen Huone (MissNaru's Wonderful Room), where she discussed sadomasochistic sexuality under her pseudonym, until in 2002 she published an autobiographical novel called Neiti N:n tarina (Miss N's story),[3] which earned her the "Year's Kinkiest Performance" award by the cultural society Rsyke the following year.[4]

Alanne has also served as chairman of the BDSM organisation SMFR, founded in Helsinki, between 2002–2004.[2]
