One third of the way though! How time flies...are we having fun?
We used to be much more BDSM-y in the past when we had the dungeon in the basement. Today not so much. This is in part because Daddy had issues (it still pains mouse but, you can read about that here) and also now -- seriously who has time to plan a lengthy scene? We do play with rope, Daddy will never give up his love of knots...and tying mouse so that she's open and completely vulnerable to him is a favorite pastime. Even if he just wants to read! Yes, he's done that. Once he tied mouse up, gagged her and held her wide open to him. He rested a vibrator right against her and opened a book he wanted to read.
Ok -- mouse had been pestering him a little...
BDSM isn't the core of mouse's submission and really never has been -- it's more of a bonus but totally not needed for her over-all happiness. It remains around the outside rim. When we play it's fun...but her submission continues long after playtime is over with. Sometimes mouse does miss the harder play. But we've learned new and exciting ways to make mouse drift into subspace.
