She’s so pretty when she’s suffering for me <3
Sasha found a way to crawl into the drawers from behind!
Nice and easy, like it was made for this…
Aww, candles! How romantic!
No. I don’t need to cuff her for that.
Or I’ll find other ways for you to amuse me.
Sometimes I do, yes. It depends entirely on my mood :)
Control: No such thing as enough.
I don’t see how the type of restraints would make her more or less comfy as a pillow.
There are a number of motivating factors here:
1. She needs to feel my control. It doesn’t have to always be physical, but physical manifestations are always good. Control is a feedback loop. When I feel in control, she feels controlled, which feeds my feeling of control. The physical aspects are powerfully symbolic, and to both of our benefits.
2. She needs to make me happy. My happiness is her happiness, and so if it makes me happy, she’ll do it, even if it’s not something she’d normally do or even likes to do otherwise (this ties in to #4).
3. She needs to serve. She needs to feel like she’s bettering my life in some way, otherwise anxiety starts to creep in.
4. She needs to sacrifice for me. Sacrifice is a form of worship; a way of showing love, devotion, and loyalty. It’s a demonstration of all she’ll give up for me; a symbolic gesture of love.
So in answer to your question: yes, but the reasons are complicated.
He came in through the door and couldn’t find his way back out!
He’d just sit there perched on the ceiling fan, and buzz around the upper windows, with Sasha prowling below.
Then I got an idea: Turn the ceiling fan on to force him to fly around, then catch him in a fishing net!
That worked just fine, and now he’s on his way to play with his lil hummingbird pals again!
It’s whatever you’ve negotiated with the company. Different companies do different things. As a full time employee, you’ll be expected to work normal office hours. As a consultant you can negotiate your own terms.
It’s a dog bed. The “stick” is a steel rod with loops at the end so I can attach her cuffs to her collar:
Rise and shine, bitch.
She won’t be able to get a permanent residence visa in Canada for some years, so we’ll spend that time in Europe and then decide what to do from there.
I don’t have any formal training in photography. All I know is the rule of thirds (separate the scene into a 9x9 grid and place things in thirds either horizontally or vertically). With the exception of the outdoor irish-8 photos, everything was taken with my Nexus 5X (you can tell because I was messing with the depth of field). Dovey has a lot more experience in photography, and an SLR camera with very nice lenses, so she could probably offer better advice here.
We were both breastfed. I was born a week late, and Dovey was born 3 weeks late.
Any time I set up a new irrigation line, the horses come a-running to inspect everything
For a truly epic movie night!
by @keepingher, the only person who is not annoyed by me dissecting bad movies/tv shows while watching them. And vice versa. Finding all the plot holes and logic problems together is so much fun. We really are the perfect match in so many weird ways 😸
It’ true. I’ve had friends threaten to leave the theater if I didn’t shut up about all the inconsistencies :P
It’s remarkable just how much of a relief it is to finally be able to share the joy of deconstructing movies with someone like-minded :)
There are few movies & TV shows that have escaped my wrath. Off the top of my head: Aliens (first and second movies only), Westworld (TV), Unforgiven, 12 Monkeys, The Expanse, Firefly (usually), The Americans, Lonesome Dove, Orphan Black (usually), House of Cards (UK version), and one episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (The Body).
I gave it some serious thought a few years ago, and in the end concluded that no, I don’t like dividing my attention like that. One slave only.
It’s just my way of saying “I own you.”
Everything accounted for.
“Standing still” doesn’t mean standing like a mannequin. Your body makes micro movements to keep balance, and it’s those movements that push against the rigid cuffs, eventually causing pain.
No. It’s impossible to walk in irih-8 ankle cuffs. Even standing in them gets painful very quickly.
There is a watermark on it. We have ticks here, but tick-borne diseases are pretty damn rare in the Pacific Northwest (similar to what you’d find in Germany).
Life in the New World
Yes, she’ll be coming with us back to Europe
In that picture, yes. When you make cheese from milk curds, you’re left with a lot of whey. If you don’t want to throw them away, you can use them to make another cheese like ricotta. But even after that, you’re still left with a lot of whey. Ghetost is what you get if you process the goat milk a third time, boiling it down to ¼ its original volume (and adding some cream for texture and flavor). The process also caramelizes the lactose, turning it dark and sweet, similar to dulce de leche.
I’ll make you feel.
I eat my waffles with maple syrup. - He eats His waffles with GOAT CHEESE!
Who is the Canadian here?!
(Norwegian father, that’s why, but still… goat cheese on waffles?? Another evidence for His obvious insanity.)
Whoever said electricity is not a toy obviously never tried this!
This is Sasha’s chair. None may use it except her.
That is true. It depends on what they’re actually looking for.
It definitely has a calming effect on her. She’ll just lie down and sink into me.
It was time consuming in that you need to leave it overnight. Other than that it’s easy.
Dominant behaviors, like submissive behaviors, are an expression of the soul. They just come gushing out and can’t be held back for long.
As a submissive, you’re capable of being dominant, but it’s not something you like, and not something you’d tolerate doing for long. You’d do it for someone you cared about, but it would become more and more soul crushingly empty and trying as the days, months, and years crept by.
You can’t pleasure him because he isn’t dominant, and the same goes for him because you’re not dominant. You can’t maintain a dominant posture long term and neither can he. Men generally start out saying they’re dominant because that’s what’s socially expected of a man. It takes a lot of experiences for them to get to know themselves well enough to say for sure what they are. It sucks, but that’s just a fact of life. Actual alpha dominants make up about 5% of any given population group (human or animal), and it’s etched into all social animals’ DNA. When that percentage rises too high, they eliminate one another by whatever means necessary until it’s down to 5% again.
I know you love him, and he loves you as well, which is why he attempted to please you by being dominant, and why you’re now attempting to please him by being dominant. But just as a ship with too many captains will be in chaos, so will a ship with no captain. You need a dominant partner, and so does he.
They don’t make German bread in Canada (the closest thing to it looked like the real thing but tasted terrible), so we made our own!
You know that nothing’s gonna stop this.
Lovely and helpless
The house is too expensive to keep, and my new job is in Germany (which is why I start at 6 am). It’s a beautiful place, but I could find something similar in Europe for much cheaper.
