BDSM Bloghop and a Giveaway!



What is a submissive?

Well, we come in all sizes and shapes lol. Yes, I’m a sub. My Dom is my husband of 20 years.



A submissive is a person who makes a conscious choice to give up some or all control of their life to another persona Dominant or a Top. Dominance and submission is about a power exchange between two consenting adults. It is about the control within the dynamics of that relationship, whether it be a full time 24/7 relationship, or a casual meeting, or a part time arrangement.

Choosing to be submissive means to allow someone else to control your body and behavior within the preset limits you and that particular person, i.e. the Dominant, have agreed upon. Submission is not a sign of weakness; some of the most successful and strongest people are true submissives.
Submission is not about passiveness, it is not about being a doormatmost submissives are intelligent and well-balanced people just fulfilling their basic desires to submit and to give up control. 



Submission is not about kinky sex and whips and chainsthough those things can and do play a part in our lifestyleit's much deeper than just that, and comes from the heart. Submission is a choice, and a wonderful gift to the Dominantit should never be entered into lightly, even in a casual situation at a party or gathering.





CONTEST!
For the BDSM bloghop, I’m giving away an eBook copy of Wrapped in Leather. This is the first  in the Wrapped UP series at DsP.

Blurb:

To celebrate his decision to take the next step with his boyfriend Ian, Toshi Baylor plans a romantic evening at their favorite steak house. Toshi starts the special weekend with a bang by surprising Ian at home with lunch. There’s a bang all right, but it’s between Ian and another guy.

Jase Taylor’s auto repair shop and the BDSM club, Wrapped Up, keep him busy while he waits for Mr. Right, instead of Mr. Right Now. He’s a Dom, but playing with the club’s submissives isn’t providing the usual stress release. After a day from hell, he deserves a good meal at his favorite steak house.

Toshi and Jase find a mix-up with their reservations: a table for Baylor, not Taylor. When Toshi invites Jase to dine with him, they discover a mutual affection for leather and a shared belief that trust must be earned.

Before they can explore their common interests, Toshi suffers a series of attacks by vandals. Jase’s protective instincts kick in, but both wonder if it can lead to anything permanent.

  9. Hi, MA. Thanks for sharing. A number of years ago a man I was getting to know told me I had submissive tendencies. I got really angry. I didn't like what I thought that meant. Wanting a better understanding, I did some research. I was pleasantly surprised at how wrong some of my perceptions were. And while I doubt I'll ever get involved in the lifestyle, I have a greater appreciation for what it means to be submissive. I also love reading about it. ;-)

  14. I do have a few friends and acquaintances who participate and enjoy such a relationship and one in particular they often switch between roles. Submission is not a sign of weakness and the relationship I referred to last are both men in high powered/intensive jobs. Both trust each other and find relief (enjoy the relief from relinquishing control) from submitting and it is no loss of power from either men from which ever role they play.

    Thank you for your article on the powerful role of submission and a chance to win Wrapped in Leather
