    How long should it be after the start of a relationship, that a collar should be introduced? Any collar or symbol?

    I think it depends on the individual relationship as to what is appropriate and where both people involved are wanting it to go, and also it maybe depends on how much contact there has been for instance in a long distance or online relationship it make take longer to be sure its a direction you want to go in.

    i think the average, based on my experience and based on friends is probably 3-6 months. If it has gone beyond ‘casual play’ and more committed it might feel appropriate to introduce a play collar i.e. a leather one or other style that can easily be removed.

    i suppose this is the same as asking a vanilla couple ‘when is it appropriate to first say i love you’ the answer…it depends when you’re ready!

    my Master branded me, putting His mark on me. i also see this as a sign that he loves me and owns me. i don’t expect anything else from Him, this is enough. i love to feel His fingers tracing over the branding as well, it’s a great feeling for me. i know that He loves me and the feeling i get knowing that i am owned by Him is indescribable.

    I’ve been looking around the internet forever trying to find the chinese symbols for submissive or slave and each site has more then one image for the words! I’m not sure which are accurate. We plan to make a tattoo out of the symbols so i need to make sure they are the right ones! Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated!

    There are no “exact” symbol for what you seek, however your best source of information is to find someone who writes and speaks the language who can guide you to the symbol you want. Try college campuses or cultural centers.
