These notes were prepared for the Monday night topic chat at The SafeworD/s Club. Join us next Monday to discuss Having a Servant Attitude!
This weeks theme is “All Tied Up”, so Lars and i decided to start by considering being restrained and in control of ourselves first and foremost. We prepared the following questions to be discussed in our chat:
-Have you ever practiced self discipline, punishment, or bondage?
-Does sub or Dom frenzy make self control more challenging?
-Do you have rules regarding masturbation, and is this rule difficult to follow?
-Is orgasm denial equal parts self control and power exchange?
-Are there rules in your dynamic that require you to exercise self control?
-Are you able to remain self motivated and under control without threat of punishment, or breaking a rule?
-Do you set self control oriented standards for yourself, or does your partner?
-What are your biggest hurdles with self control?
-When your partner isn’t looking, do you give in to impulse without admitting so?
-Are there times where self control in D/s has helped in vanilla life?
Here are some highlights from the conversation:
-Basically everyone admitted (even some Dominants!) that when our partner isn’t looking, we are sneaky sneaky jerks, and do things we aren’t always supposed to!
-Self bondage, and punishment is a curiosity, would be and is challenging.
-From a submissive perspective, it appears that while we set our goals and standards ourselves, we want our Dominants to help encourage and motivate us to achieve them. From a Dominant perspective, this is not always apparent. This needs communicated.
-Snacking, exercise, and sleep seem to be big issues for those trying to practice self control.
