Musings of an owned slave, i am allowed to write here freely, this chronicles my highs and the lows, its not everyone's reality but it is mine...welcome
tori,I believe that a slave gives everything to a Master, body and soul. I find it very difficult understanding the depth of the relationship because it is so special and not something I have experienced.Therefore, the Master has a responsibility to the slave that is consistent with what the slave has given. A Master must focus on developing the slave and providing consistent control that enhances the life of the slave. To me, M/s represents a more significant commitment than a D/s relationship. It is all consuming for both the Master and the slave.Hug,joey
I found it a difficult question to answer joey, i think because im wary of sticking a label on it of what it should be, but yes i agree with what you said here.x
When I think of the word "Master"...I think of how the word is often intended. In French "Maître" is kind of an old world description that refers to the fact that someone has mastered their craft. Master Accountant, Master Lawyer, etc and this is what goes through my mind when I see this question because in a D/s relationship, I think to be called Master is a title, it is a title that has been earned through trust and being responsible and excelling in all the qualities of a good Dom. It means, I think, to have mastered control over someone else. Complete control, mastery. Mastery of trust, of loyalty of keeping their word, of being the safe place but yes...Mastery over the individual. However, I don't think it necessarily is a progression from "Dom" to "Master". Many don't like the word, many others feel that it is reserved for a dynamic in which 'slave' is the other label. And I rambled in your comment thread--apologies--it definitely made me think.
This i like, i like the idea of it being something has been earned rather than it being a given.Some people dont like labels, and i get that, but i do think they are useful in narrowing down definitions, the problem then is that not everyone agrees on what the definition is lolno problem for rambling, im guilty of it myself!x
Really used to have many ideas about this...The title Master must be earned and not just handed out because he demands it. Other times it's about how slave/sub feels....like mouse will most of the time refer to Omega as Daddy. Tho sometimes it's Master and still other times Sir. That largely depends on her own mood and his maybe. Hugs,mouse
Yes definitley agree it must be earned, respect needs to be built on rather than it just being assumed that because one is dominant they are entitled to it.I call the bossman Sir, Master very, very rarely in r/l but occassionaly in the blog....i think yes its dependent on his mood, situation.x
