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.
