This. This this this this.
Always good to keep things clear.
Don’t overthink this. A rollercoaster is exciting because it’s a voluntary, controlled experience Being trapped on a runaway train is terrifying and dangerous. Skydiving is voluntary and exciting. Falling out of an airplane… isn’t.
Things partners do together are categorically different from things one person does to an involuntary victim. This is true even if all parties have been partners in other activities. It’s true even if the victim has previously participated enthusiastically.
Forcing someone on a rollercoaster when they’re not in the mood is categorically different from them asking to join you. Even if they’ve ridden in rollercoasters with you before.
Partners doing things together is categorically different from coercion, badgering, bribing, intoxicating, or seducing someone to get them to do something they don’t want to do.
You can’t be a Dom and be a drunk.
A friend of mine sent me a text yesterday. “You can’t be a Dom and be a drunk” She said it in reference to the NY AG stepping down.
My response was “I’ve heard that.” I don’t know if she got that it stung but it did.
I struggle with alcohol and have for a very long time, I’m on a path to recover now and I pursue my own aggressive brand of therapy mixing AA and Smart Recovery.
Always in the scene the Dom must be on and be emotionally and mentally fixed, prepared and certainly not impaired. I practice that in all ways all the time during play sessions. I consider being with a partner in a D/s situation with the same gravity I take with any sort of action that could have serious consequences, whether it be riding a motorcycle, handling firearms or being in a combat zone.
I guess my question is that as a broken person can I be a Dom? I think the answer is yes but at the same time I don’t know I guess I won’t find out until and unless I’m in a position to be with a submissive again.
On the NY AG issue, personally my belief is that he was an ill informed ass of an abuser who like many watched 50 Shades or BDSM porn and thought that shit was how it was done.
Forgive me, friend, for tugging this up from the archives. I had it saved in my drafts because I wanted to respond to it but couldn’t quite figure out what I wanted to say.
I’m pretty sure I was the friend who said that. “You can’t be a Dom and a drunk.” And I’ve said similar things since then. The overarching thing for me is that, if you are not in control of yourself, you are not allowed to be in control of me. Period. Monsieur knows that if he goes out with friends and has too much to drink, that’s perfectly fine. But our D/s dynamic is effectively suspended until he is sober again, particularly when it comes to play. It’s a matter of safety and trust in the moment, not a judgment of his value as a Dominant.
It’s the same with you, dear friend. You are one of the good ones, and you have shown a great deal of responsibility and determination in making a lot of life changes in the time I’ve known you. Any submissive would be lucky to have you as her Dominant.
You can’t be a Dom or Daddy and a drunk. You can be a Dom or Daddy and be in recovery though. Self discipline matters in a Dom or Daddy. More important, maybe, is not being in denial.
@cherishedproperty makes the even more important point that you can’t be a Sub and a doormat or codependent. If your partner is impaired -whether by intoxication, anger, distraction, or fatigue – you gotta be up for whistling the play dead. Because your Dom can’t always.
A kink relationship is a relationship. Between equal, autonomous partners.
It’s not bad or wrong to get hammered. But it’s not ok to play with power tools while impaired. Or to operate power exchange.
You can be an awesome Dom in recovery. You can be a marvelous Sub and say this isn’t the right time.
Hats of to both @cherishedproperty and @twisted-from-lit.

service top: you don’t get to stop cumming
Slight correction here

also top: you don’t get to stop coming till I let you
Nothing wrong with service. But it’s pretty misunderstood.
Each of these things is technically “service.”
- Walking your dog
- Making dinner for your kids
- Going along with the joke
- Leading an expedition
- Standing on stage and getting everyone to clap while you solo out on “We Will Rock You.”
- Washing a car because you were asked to
- Washing a car because you were told to
- Washing your car because it’s your car and you want to make it glow
- Changing a baby’s diaper
- Rescuing a child from a burning building
- Edging someone till they’re a gibbering mess
- Making someone come and come till they’re a gibbering mess
- Answering “sure, princess” when someone says please let me come
- Answering “we’ll see, princess” when someone says please let me come
But not all service is subservient, is it? No, not at all.
Goodness, your panties are soaked! C’mere, fluffbucket, so Daddy can get you out of these wet things…
You don’t have to love polka dots, stickers, and claiming Skittles candy is a food group to be a D/Lg Little, do you, thimble? Sometimes it’s just about those irresistible urges to hump like a little animal in front of an older, experienced Daddy.
Great advice, definitely worth remembering for the future.
But for this particular relationship, I’d say don’t bother giving him a second chance. Just break things off now – he’s already demonstrated he’s not a D-type as far as I’m concerned.
You don’t have to send anyone nudes you don’t want to.
You don’t have to show anything to anyone you don’t want to.
You never have to send nudes.
So, now that that’s out of the way: A d-type doesn’t declare rules like some god-chosen omnipotent emperor on his throne. Rules are a negotiation and they’re agreed upon by both parties. He doesn’t have “his rules” the two of you have “your rules”.
He can want to create a rule about nudes, you can discuss said rule, and you can agree to said rule if you want to. Or you can tell him nudes are a limit you’re not ready to break and that’s that.
If you’ve told him that nudes are a limit and he continues to pressure you into giving him some knuckle thunder then he’s not respecting you, your relationship or the d/s dynamic.
You need to sit down and have a meta-talk with him. Explain you’re uncomfortable with nudes, explain they’re a limit that you’re not willing to move past right now (or ever if that’s your choice), explain his pressuring makes you uncomfortable. If he can’t respect that and stop the pressure immediately, then he’s no d-type.
He keeps telling me it’s his rule to send him full nudes and I have to obey.
Yeah, maybe he’s young and inexperienced, but he’s also pushy and selfish, and clearly interested in putting his desires for immediate gratification over your comfort and boundaries.
There are plenty of guys out there who pretend to be doms, because they think they’ll get easy access to titillation and sex, without having to bother with all that tedious treating other people with respect. He strikes me very strongly as one of those.
It’s not your job to teach him to be a better person. If you leave him, and tell him why, maybe he’ll learn better for the next person. But he’s very unlikely to change behaviour with you – he’ll just keep at it till he faces real consequences.
General ummutable rule for Submissives: kink is supposed to make you happy. For that matter sex is supposed to make you happy whether you’re kinky or not! And so if something doesn’t make you feel happy, fulfilled, or generally satisfied then a partner asking you to do it doesn’t make it magically ok.
If it turns you on to be asked for naked selfies? If it makes you excited? Gets your creative juices flowing, or just gets your juices flowing period? Awesome! Go for it! Hope your partner asks every time!
But if it doesn’t? Also awesome! Negotiate the hell out of it or draw the line entirely.
Another way to put that immutable law: whatever your role in kink, you’re still an autonomous and equal member of your relationships.
It’s not just your Dom who needs to get that. You need to get that too. Really. I promise!
D/S, D/Lg, S&M, B&D, even plain old vanilla sex works better… lots better… when everyone remembers that you’re in it for each other, yes, but you’re also there for yourself.
And look. This isn’t about “topping from the bottom!. No matter how Submissive you are, if someone visits your home you still tell them things like they need to take short showers because there’s not much hot water, that you keep the doors closed so the cat won’t get out, and that the bottom step is wobbly, right? That’s not “domination” that’s courtesy! It’s responsibility! It’s saying “you’ll need to keep these things in mind.”
You’ll warn them that putting their bags against the baseboard heaters could burn their stuff and fill the place with smoke, right?
It’s the same thing in D/S.
“If you ask me for nudes it’ll burn our relationship” is also an ok thing to say. For the same reason! Expressing one’s boundaries and limits isn’t just responsible, it’s courteous!
OH IT MAKES SENSE NOW THANK YOU FOR PUTTING IT INTO WORDS
Same story for evil cops. Environments that allow predators and abusers to thrive and be protected are going to fill up with predators and abusers no matter how good the people around them are.
It happens in a lot of fields. Cops, social workers, priests, volunteers who work with kids, foster parents. Predators operate at their peak in positions of authority where they can act unquestioned.
Might want to add abusive “Doms” and “Daddies” in the D/S community…
This is a great guide!
At some point, I’m just wondering, how many people don’t understand what consent is and how hypnosis is supposed to work.
Like, if I post on my tumblr, “covertly try to hypnotize me” and then you come into my DMs with a link to a spiral, it’s consensual because I already said yes to it.
If I didn’t, and you hopped in my DMs with a spiral, it wouldn’t be consensual and that would be a form of abuse.
Things I’ve experienced:
– Random usage of dropped triggers
– Completely going off discussion and ignoring boundaries
– Literally watched someone go, “well communicating means my TRIGGER HEAVY induction won’t work, and I’m actually going to be pretty much like an abuser” without realizing proper consent is important
– Mislabeled or unlabelled files with forced slavery or feminization
– Fucking bullshit with trying to “make another personality” without permission
– Forced unconsenual masturbation
– Forced Nudes
– Tried to literally break my relationship up
– Random Messaging when I said I was at dinner in an attempt to trance me
Consent isn’t just important, it stops you from being a fucking predator. Like, what the fuck.
And because of it, and because Tists are dumb and assholes. Subs, here’s some tips.
First off: Look for a reputation. If the person’s been called creepy or pushy, chances are they’re not good. Sometimes just asking about the guy will get you like, DMs. Look out for posts detailing abusers and predators.
Second: Establish firm boundaries, make sure the person can remember them after conversing. It might seem weird, but, if someone can’t take the time to remember what you don’t want, then they shouldn’t be having that power over you. They should keep notes on it.
Three: Make sure you can keep the boundaries yourself. Sometimes it helps to record yourself a little audio thing, or write yourself a post. One of the major things in the community should be safety, and whilst it’s easier for a live person to take you deep, if you can give yourself some safety triggers, it’s better than nothing.
Four: Write important things down. Hypnotic Amnesia is popular, and until you’re sure you can trust the person, it’s best to be safe than sorry, write down what your name is, how old you are, and anything else that you’re worried on forgetting, including your boundaries.
Five: Set a session length, or a time you need to go, and then set an alarm for that time before you start. Make sure it’s something loud and you’d notice being intrusive. This is actually good for responsibilities too, because time can fly and you might need to go to dinner with your family or something. Also give yourself time to practice self care to avoid sub drop.
Six: Don’t be afraid to cut someone off if they creep you out or you feel uncomfortable. Even if it’s just the fact the person uses too many smileys. Your comfort matters, and you’re not going to vibe with everyone.
Seven: First sessions should be light, introductory, and you should know exactly what you’re getting into. If you’re confused, ask questions.
Eight: Get to know one another. It seems weird if it’ll only be one time, but, knowledge helps. If they’re willing to take the time to talk before a session, that’s good.
Nine: Friendships are good. Whether it be Subs or Tists, having friends in the community gives you places to go to when things go wrong. Don’t be afraid to message someone in the community to try and be friends.
Ten: Speak out. If you see someone getting taken advantage of, or experience it, tell people. It’s better to let the community know there’s a predator, and it helps for anyone in step one.
Eleven: Sub Drop. This isn’t actually about predators as much as it is about mental and physical self care. Intense emotions and activities can give you a really good euphoria. When you come down suddenly or you don’t let yourself slowly fade out while relaxing, being comforted, you can experience sub drop. Personally, I’ve never had it, but I’ve been around folks who have. Set things up beforehand so you can have aftercare. Even if it means making yourself some nice coffee and wearing your favourite robe. Give yourself some time to recover from the impact of the session.
Twelve: What works for you, works for you. Don’t be pushed into things you don’t like/don’t find work. Advice is free, your experiences and ideas matter. If you can’t do X, you can’t and that’s fine. Personally, I find Step 9 difficult because of my neurodivergence and my anxiety. Friends are hard to make. But I’m very good with one and three.
Thirteen: Stay safe, have fun. Make sure to drink lots of fluids n take care of yourself. This should be enjoyable for you, regardless of kink, or recreational. It should be fun, and good.
I know there are better guides out there, but I hope this helps! I wish you all the best.
I don’t actually know much about hypno kink, though when I was a little kid hypnosis sounded awesome! This discussion of hypnosis boundaries and limits seems like a very good introduction.
You can learn a lot about a kink from an expert’s caveats.
As a top I’m now very intrigued.

Being Poly isn’t a life choice people make to enable them to have sex with multiple people.
Being Poly is admitting to yourself that you have the capacity to love and care for more than one partner, choosing to pursue multiple relationships, and doing your very best to see that each of those partners feel loved and fulfilled in the individual relationships you build with them.
Being Poly isn’t about exploring sex with multiple people.
Being Poly is about exploring love with multiple people
This! The proper term for rubbing bits together people who aren’t your partner is “swinging.” Or maybe “fucking around.” Or even, you know, “infidelity.”
Once you get it’s not all about sex, and sometimes it’s not about sex at all, you realize polyamory’s been around for a very long time.
Once you get it you realize that a lot more people are poly than most people imagined. Anddddd… also a lot fewer!

Just a head’s up for all the guys who worry about being “manly” or not being “masculine” and “will not putting a ‘gas, grass, or ass’ bumper sticker on my car make me look gay?” Something like 40% of women in Western Civilization and elsewhere would cheerfully peel this man out of his white duck pants and fly-collar polo and not let him up till they’d had his baby.
Wear what you want. Say what you want. Do what you want. Don’t worry what anyone else thinks. That’s all you need to know about being a “real” man. Ok. That and shower occasionally and don’t get too full of yourself.
