One website i used to enjoy reading and contributing to on occassion was InformedConsent which has now closed, well its still there but its more aimed at activism, the owner of the site and many of the people that were on it have moved to Fetlife. I was sorry to see it go, it was the UK's largest bdsm orientated site, it was small and because it was it had more of a 'community' feel to it, but mostly in a sentimental way for me personally, it was where i 'met' the bossman.....where he seduced, stalked and consequently corrupted me....just to add a flair of drama! i was happy to be corrupted!
I tried Fetlife, perhaps i didnt give it long enough but it just wasnt for me, perhaps as was pointed out by someone on there its that 'im not a team player', because i dared to give an opinion that the 'group' did not agree with...umm even though apparently "different opinions are always welcome as long as expressed respectfully"..something to that effect...well yes they were welcome as long as the group owner and their posse agreed with it.
I do admit im not one for joining 'groups' (online that is) and thats probably why Fetlife was not for me, there are so many of them its actually mind boggling..groups for slaves, masochists, property, unowned slaves, subs with big tits, skinny subs...i swear there is probably a group for everything you can come up with..and if there isnt you can make your own....maybe i should make one and call it "i hate being put into a bloody pigeonhole" but then that would rather defeat the point.
However as i didnt 'investigate' every single group going i wont tar them all with the same brush, thats unfair.
Anyway what i was going to write about seems to have morphed into something else (that happens a lot), what i remember of one of the groups was this submissive making a post that she was struggling with aspects of her slavery and was asking for advice, she got some, but she also got ridiculed...coz clearly being a submissive/slave means that everything should always run smoothly or whats so difficult about submitting..and other 'helpful' comments, and having recently had 'issues' myself it made me think about that....i think i will leave that for another post on another day, as this is my second one today....gosh this cutting my hours at work is giving me too much time to think!
