That's probably true for some, but for others I think they're just power hungry and want someone who knows both of their places. And then for some it's just a game
Depends on what you're talking about. In real life, I would agree with you. But if couples like playing D/s games in the bedroom that has nothing to do with the equality in the relationships.
Sadly, I don't think we get many well adjusted people here on EP. Oh, yes, I sure the things talked about here do occur in real life. My point was that one can engage in Dom/sub role playing and be in a good relationship.
True but they do not know others can see it.
We have many very submissive wife's with dom husbands that more or less came from Mexiceo. I think what you said above is very true.
