I think of these two phrases like:<br />
The glass is half full or it is half empty...<br />
It is all in the way you look at it.
Yes, people who want to be submissive can be so dominate in their demands.
You are submissive or you are dominate in the role you are playing at the time. I am a switch ( I like to dominate women) however I am 24/7 submissive with my Master. We are all dominate and submissive in the different roles we play in everyday life. I work in a very dominate role but cannot wait to get home and be submissive to Master ....
i can relate to that, i am very confident and a bit intimidating at work however i cant wait to get hope to submit, submisive is who i am but there is only one person i fully trust to do that.
I like both
ohhh you want to be a switch sure its possible its kinda like passive aggresive
Not really. Sexually speaking, they're two sides of the same Dysfunction Coin.
How exactly is this particular coin Dysfunctional?
Submissiveness is merely a masochistic corruption of a healthy sex drive. Domination (sadism) is its opposite and equally corrupt cousin. A healthy expression of sexuality really has no need for either.
Do better research it is healthy. Not everyone is cut from the same cookie cutter.
If people are having fun and consenting and find the experience pleasant, then whose health is being negatively affected?
Because, you know calling an activity unhealthy means it has a negative impact on one's health, not that you just don't approve, right?
Not all submissives are masochists and not all dominants are sadists. Submissives like to give up control be it a little or a lot. Dominants like to have control. It's a consensual power exchange between the two. And it doesn't alway involve sex. It can be just physical or mental or all of the above. It depends on the players and the scene they are playing.
Usually I like my husband to take the lead in our intimate interactions, but some times I like to take the lead. Taking the lead is a form of dominance, letting (or asking) someone to lead is a form of submission. The perception of these terms is that the most severe definition is the norm. The reality runs the gamut from who's on top to extreme bondage and discipline.
I would jump on the correction bandwagon, but it would seem there is already enough valid points to base a novel on :)
Being a sub can very subtle. Just wearing what your partner wants you to wear, handing your partner your car keys so he can drive when you go out, or letting your partner order for you at dinner, are acts of submission. For me, this was A LOT.
this to me is funny, its like, atheist preaching about God
Sounds like a lame play on words. Personally, I am neither.......,but let someone try to dominate me....they will pay.
Yes, but probably not in the same moment. It all depends on your mood/frame of mind. Do you want to be more laid back and let someone else take the lead, or do you want to lead and have someone follow your command?
Or do you want to take turns.
Yes , your mind set .
Well there are crosses that do/are bit and I guess either is possible. I have a very head strong sub that has been a challenge at time and as a Dom I feel if I ever have to raise my voice I've done something wrong. I would never see myself, I doubt anyone else would either as a submissive Dom lol. Good question
That's an oximoron.
I would say you are more a switch than a sub or Dom
I think being submissive is situational to some extent. There is always a person out there for whom we would be submissive, even if we don't see ourselves that way. Also, there are many different ways and degrees of being submissive; not the stereotype of being tied up or put on a leash. Many see me as an Alpha Male, but I was submissive for my first BF. He was big and drop dead handsome, so I let him get away with a lot. I have not done this with anybody since, not do I want to. That's just the way it went down in that relationship!
Oh thats a good question
