The Submissives Creed

 as taken and copied off the internet . . .

I will communicate with complete honesty my needs, desires, limits, and experience.

I realize that failing to do so will not only prevent my Master and I from having the best experience possible, but can also lead to physical and emotional harm.

I will not try to manipulate my Master.

I will not push to make a scene go the way I feel it should.

I will keep an open mind about trying things that I am not accustomed to or comfortable with and expanding my limits.


I will continue to grow as a submissive and as a human being.

I will accept the responsibility of discovering what pleases my Master, and will do my best to fulfill His wishes and desires.

I will not allow myself to be harmed or abused,


I know that submissive does not equal "doormat".


I will be courteous and helpful to my fellow submissives,

I will share my knowledge and experiences with others in the hope that they will learn from where I have been,

I will take the time to help those new to the scene start out on the correct path.


I will be responsive to my Master,

I will not try to hide what my mind and body are feeling so that I may assist Him in His responsibilities as my Authority,

I know that Dominants are not telepathists, and will not expect my Master to know thought or feelings which I do not share.


I will never think myself a "better" submissive because I choose to submit on a different level than another.

I will not be boastful of experiences I have had as a sub.

I know that my actions reflect upon my Master, and will do my best to help others see him in a positive way,

I will not intentionally embarrass or displease my Master.


Above all, I will wear my title of submissive with honor,

I will never cause others to think that being submissive means to be weak or subhuman.

I will take pride in who and what I am, and will never show myself in a negative way.

ty again with respect and utmost contentment

you are most welcome my friend . . . 8D. . . I love to see happy people . . .

Thank you so very much for this post!

I was losing hope that there might be other women like me. At first when I began exploring my essential nature and innate dispositions I believed that masochism and bondage was the essence of submission.

Recently I have come to understand that for me, it's not about the pain, rather submission is in my case about being there for my dominant. Surrendering to him, making him and his needs and wants my priority gives me more joy than I can possibly express. I keep no secrets from him and trust him with everything that I am.

Opening the door and greeting him wearing something sexy, because that is how he wants to see me when he comes home from work; taking off his shoes, making the breakfast he likes; following his direction and guidance and gracefully accepting his correction when I have displeased him, as well as the intensity and physicality of the way we experience each other in bed and in our dungeon/play are; being his in every way. In return I have the love and support of someone who cherishes me, makes me laugh, encourages and supports me in the things that are important to me like going back to school and volunteering; a man who is "strong enough to be my man."

For me each D/s relationship is unique to the two (or more) in the relationship. I can't tell you what a relief it was to read your post. I am proud to say I'm a feminist. The idea of being submissive and a feminist seems antithetical to many people. Not to me. For me, the essence of feminism is having the ability and opportunity to embrace and express one's true nature: in the boardroom and/or the kitchen, as a CEO and/or or a mother; as an athlete and/or a teacher. It is a luxury to be able to have and make these choices about how a woman lives, how she spends her time, and with whom she spends it.

I am a highly educated woman with a Master's and years of working at the management level for corporate organizations. Yet being with him, surrendering all of myself to him is the most magnificent feeling to me. I am proud of and thankful to all the woman who have come before me for making it possible for me to choose submission. My life would be very different if I was subjugated or forced to be obedient. Instead I give of myself willingly, happily, and thankfully.

so perfectly put my friend . . . thank you for taking the time to read and comment so thoughtfully . . . you are a prime example of what it means to be a sub . . . thank you for sharing . . . best of luck and love to you and your Dom . . .
