Sub Or Slave...
I identify as a lifestyle submissive...I do not identify as being a slave because while I want and like almost total control at times I know that I also need to have my freedom at times - to negotiate/discuss if i feel that too much is being asked of me and while i need to feel owned I like to know that I am more than just property.
My question for the subs/slaves is how did you decide which you were? I know that it was at times difficult for me to accept being submissive...for slaves - was giving up total control a difficult decision in the end? How difficult was that final acceptance for both subs and slaves?
And on the other side - for Masters/Doms...a lot is written about the difficulties of accepting that you are a submissive or a slave...are there similar issues associated with accepting that you are dominant?
