There are moments when one has to choose between living one's own life, fully, entirely, completely-or dragging out some false, shallow, degrading existence that the world in its hypocrisy demands. - Oscar Wilde
Hello all. Welcome back to The Forum. Our weekly gathering of men and women who are in, or interested in being in, domestic discipline or Female Led Relationships.
Thank you all for the enthusiastic reaction to last week's posting. People do seem to like it when I tell more personal anecdotes. So, let me explain why I don't do it that often. The primary reason is because, believe it or not, I would very quickly run out of material. One of the things I've said is somewhat lacking in my own DD relationship is consistency. When men first decide they want this lifestyle, I think there can be a tendency for it to become kind of all-consuming, and there can be an expectation that spankings and other forms of discipline will happen very frequently. Then, along comes real life with all its competing commitments and distractions. While I write this blog every week, real disciplinary spankings happen less than monthly. There also is not a huge amount of variety in the sessions. They tend to happen in the same place, using the same basic set of tools. So, if I tried to build this blog around personal anecdotes, I would quickly run out of anything interesting to say. Also, some of what my wife and I deal with as a couple is personal, and while there is obviously some exhibitionism involved in talking about something like this in a public blog, there are some limits on things I will share, such as private conversations with my wife about our relationship.
But, I will share personal stories and thoughts from time to time, because I do sometimes just want to talk to people. That's always been my goal for this blog. I want it to encourage real conversations about this interest that we share. That is also why I get so mad at some of the trolls and the obsessive compulsive verbal diarrhea that some are intent on spewing onto the pages of this blog. As I pointed out to Tomy in a response to a comment he left yesterday, it's not that I have a problem per se with comments that may reflect something that didn't really happen. It's that those comments tend to not have anything at all to do with the conversation that is happening. Oh, the person may throw in one line at the beginning that kind of sort of responds to the topic. But, it then quickly degenerates into minor variations on whatever obsessive fantasy the troll is fixated on at the moment. It is basically just masturbation passing for conversation. It's the lack of interaction that really vexes me, along with the attempt to take the blog in the direction the obsessive commenter wants it to go, instead of in the direction I want it to go.
See, there I went sharing about myself again. 😀 I hope you all will do the same.
Have a great week. If you are new to this Forum, please stop by the Guestbook (tab above) and tell us a little about yourself and your DD or FLR lifestyle.
