Often times I respond to posts on Fetlife or Allexperts.com that deal with “How do we do this?”.  “How do we do this?” comes in so many different forms too!  Some of the questions I have gotten recently include:

  • How do we peg?
  • How do I have more sex on dates?
  • How can I help my wife to be more comfortable with my kink?
  • How do i serve my Master without resentment?
  • How can I get her to respond better?

And, the “How do we do this?” might be beginning kinky play as a couple, as this post is.  I include the original post and my response, for any of you who have a spouse how wants to play, and you love them enough to ask: “How do we do this?”  Because, “How do we do this ” is such a beautiful place to start… it speaks to desire, curiosity, interest. It speaks to hope and presupposes there ARE answers, there is a way.

My husband wants to play

Hi, I have been with my husband for 6 years. We have been married for 1 1/2 years. I am way more vanilla than he is ( or would like me to be). This has been our big fight since we meet. We love each other that I know. But he is just so unhappy with this part of our life. We have tried to come up with things I am ok with, but when we do them it is never enough. I want him to be happy. I love him so much. He asked me to come up with things he can do with or without me. I know he wants to play with me more that without me. And. Want to also. I need more suggestions of what we can do. ( a bit racy and fun but still something I can do) please help!!!

Hi ___________

Welcome and congrats for writing. I love hearing about couples searching for ways to make their relationship great!

Most often there is a dream behind what is wanted and the ‘never enough’ has more to do with the dreamer than the act. Here are a few questions that if your husband answers will help you move forward.

What was ‘not enough’? Enthusiasm? Were your reactions less then hoped for? What did you/he do right? What can you/he do differently or more of? Did you expect the first time or three to go ‘great’? How much room are you both allowing for discussion about how to make it right?

Have you asked him: “What would be great for you? (you mention that when you do things it is never enough. I don’t go for “enough”… I go for Great!).  Another question to ask him is: “What are the 5 things that turn you on the most?”.

Here is a link to a “Play Partner Checklist” that is a useful guide for couples.

Here is a link to my website www.BDSMcoach.com where there are many other resources.

Please do let Me know how it goes for you!

Off W/we go to Arizona this weekend presenting “NLP 201-Other Than Conscious Control” at the Behind Closed Doors Conference. 

As a kinky coach I get many “how to” questions… many have to do with how to influence our partners, submissives and slaves. Influence, control… it is so much of what we do in this BDSM lifestyle… Tops/bottoms; Doms/subs; Masters/slaves…

Influence is easy…really.

     A key to ease in influence is #1 You… Your emotional state and skill levels. One cannot expect to ‘Master’ another until they have mastered their self. If You know what you want, and You are confident in your “dominance” then directing or commanding others will come natural.

Then there’s the Other Than Conscious Influence… that’s the skill part. Knowing that all behaviors are communication is part of it; training yourself to observe things like: breathing changes, body movements, skin color changes, eye movements and then Use these behaviors to influence…. without ever saying a word.  That’s some of that NLP stuff. And there’s more.

Then there’s the ability to influence with just a few words… to influence mood, attitude, thoughts, emotions and behavior… with just a few words…  just a few words.

This NLP stuff is really remarkable.  Here’s a link to Learn More about NLP (NeuroLinguistic Programming) training which includes a short video and a short introductory paper for you to learn more: “NLP-Just the Tip of the Iceburg”

 

Kinky…everyday living; is it 24/7?

I laughed recently when a kinky friend of mine said: “Well, I don’t live it 24/7 like you.” Funny because living day in and day out with a slave, one get’s used to things… a new “normal”  begins to settle. I had forgotten that having a slave is a bit different.

Yes, slavery is illegal. Some or many of you are familiar with the M/s dynamic, Master/slave. So when I refer to slave, please know that it is voluntary servitude…. slavery is illegal, and immoral.

I was surprised and taken aback by his statement: “I don’t live it 24/7”.  Well, where do these parts of you go? Are your dominant/submissive characteristics eliminated during daylight?   We all have certain ‘tendencies’ and these are context dependent…. so in some way, aren’t we always living ‘are stuff’ 24/7?

This may or may not be true of some other proclities or preferences: Bondage, extreme masochists, extreme sadists, spanker fetishes… these things may be harder to incorporate in your daily life.

But not so with our Dominent/Submissive characteristics. I’m a Master 24/7…it has to do with who I am and how I approach the world. I also submit, with full decision and consciousness depending on the context; tis part of “Mastering”.  W/we get to be great servants, Masters, Dominants and submissives in our daily lives… 24/7.  Well we get to if we embrace these other aspects of ourselves in our so-called normal lives.

Why not love your life just a bit more… embrace your preferences, experience even more joy.

      A recent posting on the kinky social site “FetLife” spoke to the “Spiritual Nature” of a Master/slave relationship.  But isn’t it just about kinky sex?  About the fun? The adventure, daring and risk? 

NO!

Well, maybe sometimes…. for some of us, it IS just about the sex, the fun, the experimenting with others and with ourselves, our own light and dark shadows… And for many, it is part of our spiritual growth, our emotional growth, our particular expresssion of or developing into our authentic selves!

Well, that post on fetlife?  I responded and included the question/answer below in their entirety.

     So, “Is it just about the sex?”…. well, sometimes it is.  Fun is in fact a life lesson we all have!  That’s right, there’s two: Learning to have fun and learning to consciously create successs.  We all have those two… so SEX is part of FUN for many of us!!!  and there are others….

     There are other reasons we participate in “kink”; as well as other life lessons… I have included an article with two tools I use to help people to discover:

  • Their Life Purpose
  • Their Life Lessons
  • Their Souls Journey

WHY???? Beacause, I want to

  • Inform you
  • Awaken you
  • Challenge you
  • Invite you
  • Love you

Yes, because if You are living in alignment with your soul’s journey… then the world is simply a better place!

Soul Journey, Life Purpose and Life Lessons (vanilla newsletter format)

Please do forward this blog or the above link to those you care about… unless you’d rather they flounder!

Regarding that conversation… Everything I and we do is about our life purpose, our journey.  Sex, eating, sleeping…. how conscious we are of this is the only difference.  Here is the post from FetLife describing the ‘bigger picture’ of one particular M/s relationship.

Who are you, what do you do? (Introductions.)

8 months ago

This is the obligatory introduction thread. Here are some questions to get people started:

Who are you, and who is in your power dynamic with you? (If you don’t have one, what is your ideal?)

What is your spiritual path, and that of the other people in your power dynamic?

How do you relate spirituality to M/s or O/p? Give us a blurb.

Greetings All!

I am Sir Jim (SirJimBliss) here on fet life. My slave is chela aka cupcake.

What is my spiritual path? A bit longer of an answer here and easier to speak about My soul journey first.

I an am Enneagram 2- the helper/caretaker…this speaks to my souls path. You can find more about soul path of a “2” here: Enneagram Type Two .

My largest lessons related to being a 2 have to do with honoring what I want, loving and being loved. My path of growth is related to developing Myself and setting an example for others—remembering to take pleasure in my existence and to esteem and value others.

On this soul path, in addition to the life lessons we all have of “Success” and “Fun”, there are several others for Me which include: Character/Integrity; Service; Love (a comprehensive understanding); Healing/Teaching and Spirituality—to deeply explore My relationship with God/Goddess All That Is.

My spiritual path is related in part to my soul’s journey: To Deeply explore My relationship with God/Goddess All That is.

AND…My Spirit is WILD! Let Me introduce Him: He enjoys FUN…adventure, exploration, learning, curiosity, more fun and pleasure from it all. Hedonistic? Somewhat… Wild and sometimes dangerous? Well, no danger for me or those I’m with, although the more faint of heart do sometimes cower at what I consider fun.

My spirit LOVES the tastes of life… it is why He decided to join with My Gentle Loving Soul… to come on down and party while journeying and learning our life lessons.

and that of the other people in your power dynamic?

cupcake is also an Enneagram type 2 Helper/Caretaker… some of her life lessons are similar to mine. There is much to be learned here about her path and life lessons as W/we journey together.

I relate Spirituality with M/s as part of My spiritual path as it fits with My role as Master. As a healthy type 2, I like to be the embodiment of the good parent that everyone wishes they had…to open others heart, soul and spirit just because mine are already open… to teach others to be more deeply and richly human. At the same time, I am here to enjoy the pleasures of life, to have all I want! To honor and value the desires I have while balancing these with the honor and integrity I afford others in My relationships.

To guide and teach others in the world is my life work. To guide and teach slaves and submissives in particular to honor their selves and their role is an honor which I hold sacred. When not acting in My official “Master” role I am also: a teacher, a healer, a counselor, a hypnotherapist, a personal coach, a magician, a husband, a father, a friend, a business owner, a lover, a martial artist and a metaphysical being becoming more magickal and powerful everyday.

“How could you!?” 

“You know that is wrong, you should do the right thing.”  

“You should think about your family!” 

 “Those are Not things adults do.”

     You’ve heard the admonishments, the warnings, the advice and direction about what You SHOULD do with your life… how you should live, who you should partner with and of course, how often you should call and visit.

      And it’s not just what you should be doing…it’s what you “Have” to do, “Must” do and “Can’t” do.  Now it was our parents job to guide us… up to a point.  And whether they were the ideal parents or psychotic maniacs, their job is done, period.  What that also means is the rest IS up to you. Hmmm….

     I started this blog this morning with the idea of introducing NeuroLinguistic Programming (NLP) to my kinky friends… and instead drifted off into the land of “Follow Your Desire”… no wonder, that’s where I go so often!  And this is an introduction to NLP, because the very “Shoulds”, “Have to’s”, etc… are actually LINGUISTIC LANGUAGE VIOLATIONS.

   Ok, so what the heck are Linguistic Language Violations?  They are violations in the speakers language that either delete, distort or generalize causing a “mis-perception” for the casual listener.  In this particular case, the “shoulds, have to’s, can’ts, etc…” are referred to as: Modal Operators of Necessity and Possibility”.  Here’s a short article I wrote a few years back which describes this phenomenon:  http://www.trulyhumancoaching.com/neurolinguistic_programming_articles/np_cant_should_and_other_modal_operators.pdf

In other words: Garbage, Nonsense.  Should, Can’t, Have To… ACCORDING TO WHO?

     At 49 years old and with ton’s of education and training in the science of humans, I am still taken aback when folks have a notion of how I’m supposed to live.  They say: “Maybe you should…”…. and I turn them off, cock my head, look at them with wonder…curious as to why this other being has a dictate for how I should live?

Our Kink, Our sexuality is a HUGE place where not only the shoulds and have to’s show up… but they show up big….

Forget about them… ask yourself… what do you want… what feels good to you?  Then, with full integrity… go play!
