I've waited for years, searching everywhere,
But only you have made me understand:
Patience in a slave is itself a prayer,
And answered by your fist around my hair.

~~~Elissa Wald, "Meeting The Master"

First of all, I am not a slave...I am a submissive. Yes, there is a difference. A slave does as the slave is ordered, no limits. A submissive has limits, although the limits are more than likely pushed by the submissive's Master.

Second, for the purpose of simplicity, when I speak of slaves or submissives it will be in the feminine, and Masters or Owners will be in the masculine. Please...no e-mails bawling me out for categorizing, okay?

Thanks.

A lot of people I know are under the unfortunate assumption that Dominance/submission, Bondage and Discipline, slavery/Mastery, and even sadomasochism is all some two-dimensional psychotic play-acting. Only sickos do it. It's for people who can't reach orgasm unless either they or their partner has been whipped so furiously that blood flows freely. It's all about whips, chains, handcuffs, and rope.

Wrong, wrong, wrong.

D/s (as I am going to call it from now on) is far from two-dimensional. Nothing that uses one's mind and emotions to such an extent could ever be that. As for me, it permeates all aspects of my life in different ways. It reveals itself in a subtle manner always to those who can see it. It gives me comfort and strength when I'm in the midst of chaos...I know there is some structure somewhere in my life.

Yes, I can actually derive pleasure from sexual activity without being beaten to a bloody pulp. Believe it or not. I can actually enjoy "vanilla" sex. All this I'll have to go into in the "Stories" section, though...way too long for this front page.

Lastly, the lifestyle is not all about the implements of physical torture. It's about masculinity, femininity, equality, trust, the gifting of oneself to another, structure, obedience, communication, creativity, instruction, teaching, learning, self-awareness, pride, humility, safety, and losing oneself for a time in the beauty of one's sensual being.
