Single In The Scene Part VI: Vulnerability

I’m of the opinion that there are many slaves who are unowned for one reason: fear of being vulnerable.

Dealing With Anger As a Submissive

“If your angry, take deep breaths. If your really angry, swear.” – Mark Twain My friend says on her blog, “Anger and I are old friends.” This is why I like her blog so much, because she is very realistic. You’ll probably see a lot of submissives say that they never get angry at their [...]
