I’m lost today, swinging at unfinished thoughts in the air, but nothing is connecting. It was a long weekend and I’m having trouble wrapping my brain around any of it. I have a tendency to conduct post-mortems on my time with J, and for the most part, I find there’s generally something I need to consider, figure out, understand, or learn about myself. It’s like there’s something discordant that needs resolved, and generally, it gets resolved, and it’s a good thing. This time, I don’t feel the resolution and I’m not even sure I can identify the dissonance. I’ve been … [read more]

BDSM and Aristotle's Aesthetics

I often bristle at some of the language I see associated with BDSM and general kink: actors, players, scenes, props, cues, scripts, costumes, dialogues, etc. On one hand, the language suggests drama–heavy, significant, and serious. On the other, it also suggests fabrication–light, inconsequential, and playful. I understand the language, but I don’t like it. I don’t like to think of myself as an actor doing a scene.

Okay, maybe I’m not quite ready to lace myself into leather, but I’d love to find something black and lacy to wear the next time I see J. I know I want a pair of sexy stilettos, and at least, I can wear them to the office–under sensible slacks, of course. I think it’s time to go shopping. I don’t … [read more]

Right now, I am in a relationship with J. He’s smart and beautiful, and most of the time, he is sweet and attentive. J has known that he is submissive for nine or ten years. I’ve only realized that I’m dominant since I met him. Looking back, I can certainly see signs throughout most of my relationships, but I’ve never felt the urge to dominate anyone before him. It’s been an interesting journey, as he’s an experienced submissive and I’m just realizing that I deeply enjoy dominance. I enjoy hurting him, teasing him, and petting him, and I love being … [read more]
