In the meatime, this week's topic relates to one of our recent polls, which asked about who initiated the disciplinary relationship. Like the poll on the ages at which people start DD, this one was, in a word, lopsided:
Unlike the poll on ages, however, this one doesn't surprise me. And, the results are reinfoced by many of the comments from last week regarding DD "surprises," many of which talked about the fact that the male initieated the DD relationship, but the female soon became an enthusiastic participant.
One thing that does amuse me a bit about these results is it does suggest that a lot of the stories out there regarding DD beginnings, including unfortunately much of the content from the old Disciplinary Wives Club, is probably more fantasy than reality, as many of the stories involve the wives initiating the DD or FLR relationship in response to exasperation with the husband's behavior, but our poll results suggest that instances of female-initiated DD may be few and far between>
So, this week, give us any thoughts you may have on why the numbers are so lopsided. Why is is usually the man initiating, particularly given all the advantages DD seems to hold for the women, and also given the leaps and bounds women have made in recent years when it comes to assertiveness in the workplace and hte professional world. Also, take a moment to share your own initiation story and most importantly why you--be you reciver or giver in the DD relationship--initiated.
Have a great week!
