    Thank you Luna for a wonderful series on pain. It has helped me to realize better ways to process pain through management. I am going to start using some of those techniques for a more pleasurable and longer play time for my Master and I

    luna this series was so fascinating. As I read the series, I kept nodding my head in agreement with emotions I have felt. I have viewed pain as my reset button .. prior to a whipping, I feel so charged with energy, I am unable to direct it usefully .. the days following I am at peace and able to focus. I have also experienced bouts where it just plain hurt! I see now my mind was not focused on the release or handling the pain but on other sidebar issues. The last time I was totally focused on not saying my safe word .. I was terrified I would blurt it out for no apparent reason. Yes a gag would have been helpful, lol. I can see rereading this series many times.

    I can’t tell you how helpful this was. I had a scene with my dominant a few hours ago and had just finished reading this series. i was able to breathe through the pain and found through focus i could manage it better by using my vivid imagination to focus on the beautiful sensations rather than the actual pain. I broke through my false edge and was able to play in subspace. Thank you so much.

    Thank you for writing this series. I happened across it recently because one of the articles was included in your Weekend Reflections. I did have a little trouble figuring out in what order to read the articles. I’ve noticed this before in your article series. I hope you don’t mind a suggestion. When searched for by keyword the articles don’t come up in order by date but by alphabetical order. My suggestion is to include a number in the titles so they will come up in order. Your readers will also be able to see at a glance which one to read first, next and so on.
