491. More submissive mental space and swimming pools fun

Some recent talks have brought me back to thinking about submissive mental space and various other spaces and I wanted to write a little bit more about it now.  As I often do, I will be referring to submissive mental space as "subspace" in an attempt to take back a word that has had its … Continue reading 491.

490. Thoughts on Uniqueness and Conformity

Something that I have had to deal with a little bit in my local excursions into our groups here is the notion that many of my ideas and thoughts about D/s fall outside the norm.  Those who have followed me for a long time are probably used to the topics that I write about and … Continue reading 490.

489. Thoughts upon me, the submissive

The history of my life has been one where I have never felt desirable nor attractive.  I have always been different.  Different in such a way that the difference would be the characteristic that stood out the most.  Different was bad.  I would have to be twice as good to be considered half as good.  … Continue reading 489.

486. Thoughts on Emotional Masochism and Healing

When I have written about emotional masochism it is frequently through the lens of my own life.  It explores the horrible awful truths that I am afraid of but in a way that does not lead to the worst possible outcome.  For those who feel abnormal or deviant, that worst possible outcome is usually rejection, … Continue reading 486.

485. Mental Spaces, Integration, and Awakenings

It feels like forever since I last made a "real" post. Those who have followed me over the years know that I write quite a bit about the mental spaces that exist for both the dominant and submissive roles.  By and large, the theories I have developed pertaining to each of these represent the majority … Continue reading 485.
