    What Makes A Man A Worthy Leader?

    A man should be a worthy leader.  Not every man is capable of leading well.  He should be kind, compassionate, thoughtful, he should have the desire to make you happy, and fulfill your needs.  He should love you more than he loves himself.  He needs to not only listen, but...

    Stability

    It is liberating in the finest sense, to submit to your husbands authority. I learned this from my parents, from being my father's dutiful and obedient daughter, and from my mother who was submissive and obedient wife. And my parents were emulating their parents as are my aunts...

    What It Means To Be A Woman

    This is a topic I have struggled with for some time. And why wouldn't I? It is fundamental to my very identity. I cannot consider it objectively or in the abstract. I live and breathe it and it affects me every day of my life. Accordingly, it is difficult to gain perspective on...

    I Certainly Do

    After more then 2 decades involved with bdsm and D/s, it seems quite obvious that most people have a ying/yang personality:  some sub, some dom; some sadist, some masochist, some male, some female.  But most people, fearing that societal norms will disapprove, stay...

    I Am A Dom Author Unknown

    I am a Dom. I did not say brute. I did not say harsh. I am a Dom, not a cold-hearted chauvinist who cares little for, and respects even less the woman in his life. No, I revere my beloved, for I realize that without I do not exist. Without her I am a mere disassembled puzzle. Yet...

    Learning Our Roles

    In A Marriage There Can Only Be One Boss

    Nature Vs Nurture

    It's no longer the PC thing to believe, but nature doesn't give a damn about PC. A man's instinct, and right place, is leading. The societal pressure on men to abdicate this, and on women to step up and assume it, is bad for both. There are bad leaders, but it doesn't...

    I Am A Firm Believer In It's Still A Man's Place To Lead.

    To submit and surrender and to place all of your faith and trust in a man, is a natural and very relevant instinct for any woman. Contrary to society's view that submission equals uneducated weakness, it is a role in a relationship.  Human history relationships have been...
