I think a lot of people who don't understand D/s think it's all about doing sexual acts with our bodies. It's sometimes difficult to explain it so that it makes sense to folks who don't get it, that it is more about our minds than our bodies. You did a great job articulating what makes you tick.
I'm not exactly the way you described those things, but in some ways i sort of am. I mean, i'm more like the way you are, not the other way. I am not hitting on you, i sympathize with you. Lol
