How to Turn Your Submissive Experience Into Education for Your Dominant

From the Submissive Guide Newsletter 6/1/13 We don’t often think about the submissive having anything to teach the Dominant, and in many cases a Dominant is teaching the submissive. There’s nothing wrong with that, but when the submissive has more experience or learning in an area it does make it easier if the Dominant is [...]

When you’re working full time in a professional field, the desire to submit can be impeded by a good number of obstacles.

Not a whole lot has gone on in the KnyghtMare household this week. I’ve been busy with homemaking tasks (breadmaking, food preservation, cleaning, organizing) so this week has been little about the D/s and more about the everyday. Which is a good thing, since D/s is always an undercurrent here it doesn’t have to be [...]

Submissive Advent Calendar

Submissive Advent Calendar

The Advent is the time in anticipation for Christmas and is celebrated in some religious circles, but also carries a secular following. Advent translated means “the coming.” I’m sure everyone has seen the cardboard calendars with little doors and chocolate inside; to be opened one a day until Christmas Day. Well, I’ve had this idea of [...]

Fictional Stories of Male Submission

Fictional Stories of Male Submission

Fictional BDSM stories or erotica are often not only enjoyable but also may be a good way to learn what might be enjoyable to the reader in real life.  Those who are new to BDSM often do not know what activities and mindsets they might enjoy and while non-fiction articles, blogs, and communities are a [...]

I’ve had a terrible time sleeping this week. My sleeping mat is a futon mattress with springs in it and it’s wearing out. So on Wednesday Master and I purchased a memory foam mattress topper to help soften the mat. I slept so much better! I’m feeling almost 100% rested now and my mood has [...]

I’ve been feeling a bit romantic lately since KnyghtMare and I are celebrating our first anniversary on Monday. It has me reflecting on the importance of love, romantic and passionate love in our dynamic. So many dynamics seem missing in something or another that has them feeling, to me, cold and distant and very strange. [...]

A Day in the Life: bonimiss

This is a post by bonimiss for the Day in the Life Series. I saw luna’s request for a day in the life and was immediately interested but then I hesitated. I fear I suffer from “Not Doing It Right” syndrome but then I thought if I am doing it the way Sir specifies, I [...]

An Introduction to Body Service

An Introduction to Body Service

From the Submissive Guide Newsletter 11-5-11 One of the more intimate ways that we submissives can serve our Dominants is by learning and performing grooming duties usually left to themselves to do. It’s not as unusual as you might think. Upper class men and women of history used to have body servants and grooms to [...]

How to Sew On a Button and other Simple Mending Tasks

Learning how to mend and patch is an age old skill that used to be second nature, but now it’s a lot easier for people to go out and buy a new pair of jeans when they rip or a new sweater when you lose a button. Clothing has become more disposable. If you are [...]
