Jared, Catrina’s “benefactor”, has agreed to pay off her debt in exchange for one year of service to him.

As part of the agreement, he’s tasked with helping Catrina get her life back on track. He’ll succeed even if he has to spank every piece of financial information into her, and he finds he just might have to do that.

Day 13 of My 30 Days of Kink

20120530-041425.jpg

Day 13: Explain as best you can what the appeal of kink/BDSM is to you? Why are you drawn to what you’re drawn to?
I guess the biggest things that draw me into BDSM are the: open communication, the amount of trust that is developed between partners, the sense of protection and care you feel as a submissive, and the reward of knowing (and HEARING) that you’ve done something to please your Dom/Master…..this a big one for me, to actually have the person tell me they appreciate, care for me, the freedom to express my sexual needs/desires without judgment, the fact that a Dom/Master is paying attention to the slightest detail & is even able to pick up on things that arouse me that I might not be ready to admit, and then providing the little nudges along the way to help me expand my comfort zone, and the biggest reason (besides the awesome sexual reactions that have) is that I feel safe, like there is someone who has my best interest at heart, who will be there when I feel the utmost despair, share in the celebration when I’ve achieved a goal, and knows when I just need comfort
One a sexual level I’m drawn to the following aspects of BDSM/Kink: I love that my fantasies are discussed and validated, having my hands bound is like receiving a pound of Godiva chocolate…yes please, anytime ;), I have fantasized about being spanked in a sexual/erotic way for quite sometime, as someone who has a ton of guilt/same associated with things of a sexual nature (funny, I didn’t attend any catholic schools until college) it is amazing to have someone “tell you what to do”/ be in control, I know he’s not going to have me do anything that would be psychologically traumatic & honestly it probably would be stuff that I Really want to do but am too embarrassed to admit, ASS PLAY is there really anything more I need to say about that except, oh hell yeah….
Why am I drawn to what I’m drawn to? Well all I can say about the sexual things is that I’m drawn to them, because I rather enjoy the orgasms that they produce *BLUSHING*! I would say that I’m drawn to the emotional aspects for several reasons: a week after my 16th birthday, I decided that my dad had beaten me for the last time, so I was bounced around from shelter, foster homes,being a runaway, group home & then back to them for a short time while I was a quadriplegic…when I was removed from my home because my mom chose my dad, I realized I was the only person that I could truly count on…BDSM enables me to know that I’ll be cared for, it is afterall the essence of a BDSM relationship. And as I said earlier, it allows me to share//do all of the wonderful freaky things I can think of.

Day 11: What are your views on the ethics of kink?
I would have to say that I really appreciate them; in a BDSM relationship there is a level of trust that I think can at times be greater than in a vanilla relationship. In order for a BDSM relationship to be successful the sub has to be able to trust their Dom with their greatest desires, embarrassing incidents or feelings and their fears. After all, if you don’t trust someone to the core of your being, do you really want them to have their hands around your neck? I know, I don’t.
As someone who has experienced sexual trauma, it is very comforting to be able to discuss the activities that may take place between a Dom and myself. I think it is important that the level of comfort of each activity is discovered, and if there is something that I am completely opposed to I trust that my Dom wouldn’t do it.

Day 12: Tell us about a humorous BDSM/kink experience you’ve had. If you haven’t had one, talk about aspects of kink/BDSM you find funny.
If I offend anyone with what I’m about to write, it is truly not my intention.
Okay, it may just be me….but I totally think that pony play is hilarious, purely from the viewpoint as a non-participant. Don’t get me wrong, I would totally love to have a nice object in my ass….really, really love, as in I can feel the wetness starting just from writing about it. However, I totally can’t get into having some kind of tail flapping around behind me, as I’m crawling around on all fours.
Although, if that meant my Dom had a nice rope stashed to easily lasso and tie my ass up…..nope, I still think I would bust out laughing. Yes, I realize that my beautiful brown ass will have red streaks on if my Dom so chooses, but they spanking part actually sounds pretty damn good.

Okay, I don’t know if I find this next part humorous or weird; perhaps it’s something that just don’t understand, and one of you more knowledgeable readers can enlighten me. What is up with the Daddy/baby girl thing? Okay, maybe I do find this a little funny too (but it could be different if i experienced it). I just can’t imagine a Dom spanking me, and I’m calling out : OOOO, Daddy!
So exactly how does the Daddy/baby girl thing work? Perhaps, there is something beautiful about this type of relationship, but as an outsider it kinda creeps me out. Don’t get me wrong, if that floats your boat…then take as many trips down the river of awesome sex as you can. At this time, from my limited knowledge of this type of relationship I honestly don’t think it is something that I want to do. Did you notice how I prefaced my statement with : at this time?
One thing I’ve learned as I venture into the world of BDSM, Sexual Enjoyment, Sexual Experimentation and Self Discovery is: I shouldn’t say that I’ll never do something, because it’s funny how things change.

Struggling with My Submission

20120521-131526.jpg

I find myself struggling with my submission, well maybe that’s not exactly the right way to describe it. I find myself struggling with my need to be submissive. I was always taught to stand up for myself and that I didn’t need a man for anything; combine that with the embarrassment that was ingrained in my brain about sex, and frankly it’s surprising that I’m not a virgin locked in a tower.
Lately, I have found myself envisioning being curled up at the feet of a Dom, and even having him stroke my hair. Or, I picture myself in a position where I’m offering myself to him. This scares the fuck out of me! I’m not sure what scares me the most about these things, if it’s the amount of trust that I’m turning over or if it’s the fact that I actually find myself craving to be submissive to him. By no means do I feel the need to be submissive to everyone, but I can’t describe the way I feel when I know I’ve done something that pleased him.

Day 4 in My 30 Days of Kink

20120420-051817.jpg

Day 4: Any early experiences that, in retrospect, hinted at your kinks?

I think that this is the hardest question that I’ve had to answer so far, in my 30 Days of Kink series. It’s not because I’m having a difficult time remembering any early experiences that might have hinted at my future kinkiness. While I’ve made HUGE strides towards accepting my sexual desires and trying to reclaim and embrace my sexuality, I’d be lying if I said I’d overcome all the shame that I feel too.
****Takes Deep Breath****
I can remember finding an old copy of one my dad’s Playboy’s, and carefully studying the poses of the models that were pictured. I remember thinking that I had to learn how to copy those poses exactly, because I wanted to make sure that the boys I hung-out with liked them. I should’ve prefaced this by saying I was the biggest tomboy around, but I can still remember striking the naked poses for my friends. I didn’t know at the time that the behavior I was participating in was sexual, but I can still recall the pleasure I felt at making them happy….and I can remember the amazing things I felt when they touched me.
As a teenager, a friend and I had a mutual attraction to one another but we were so good of friends, we never wanted to take the chance of messing up our friendship. However, that didn’t stop us from frequently enjoying mutual masturbation sessions on the bus….and yes, it was a rush to know we were doing these things in public.
But, the biggest thing that I can think of as a sign that hinted at my kinkiness, was the fact that I used to write erotica. The stories didn’t include any instances where BDSM occurred, but at the time it wasn’t a common thing for 8th and 9th grade students to write erotic stories. Although, as I think about it I’m wondering if my stories weren’t another part of my sexually submissive nature. My friends would give me requests for subject matter, and while I obviously enjoyed writing the stories and the way I physically felt while writing them….that was nothing compared to the feelings I got when I saw the pleasure on the face of the person who requested the story.
I haven’t written any erotic material since before I realized/admitted to myself, that I was sexually submissive….but, I’m sure if someone requested one I would jump on it 😉
