I have a conflict about my "sub" tendencies. On the one hand, I love to be totally dominated for a few hours at a time, while being given enemas, and spankings, and such like. On the other hand, I like my day-to-day relations to be based on full equality. In other words, I don't want the sub role to take over my whole life. I don't want my partner making rules that I have to try to live up to. So my fantasy utopia would be that my partner and I are equal and independent most of the time, but we set aside a regular time for me to be disciplined - not needing any reason other than "it's that time", or because one of us gets the hots for one of our "sessions".
I suppose SOME of the dominant/submissive relation would be bound to creep into the rest of our time together. Something like this, maybe:
She: "You mean you spent ALL morning reading?"
Me: "Uh... Yeah."
She: "Mmm... You remember what day tomorrow is?"
Me: "Uh... Yeah."
She: "You'd better get your bottom ready for something extra this time!"
Me: "Hey! I worked really hard this week. I needed some time to unwind."
She: "Well, that's entirely your decision, isn't it? And whose decision is it what happens to your bottom tomorrow?"
Me: "Uh... Yours."
She, smiling: "That's right, Sweetie!"
By which time I'd probably be just about creaming my pants, and not too worried about her judging me. (Actually, being made to feel either guilty or unfairly accused would probably make me cry more readily, which is a plus as far as I'm concerned.) This sort of thing could excalate, I suppose. It would probably help keep things from getting out of hand if every now and then it was HER turn to be disciplined.
Or another "ideal" solution would be to have a side relation with a stern friend or "auntie", who ALWAYS dominates me, comprehensively, whenever we're together, but our "together" time is limited to an evening every week or two. (As long as enemas and spankings are a regular part of her domination pattern!)
Postings by "serious" subs suggest either a serious commitment to a 7x24 BDSM relation, or people who choose a lifestyle that includes corporal punishment as a consequence for breaking their partner's rules, also 7x24. Since I'm a part-timer, and don't want to commit my whole lifestyle to either of these patterns, I don't know quite how to describe my lifestyle tendencies in a nutshell. I also don't know if there's anyone else out there who is into this sort of "part-time" approach?
Any comments from "real" subs (or doms) about this? Anyone out there share my desires for a part-time / limited sub relation? Anyone currently in such a relation, or was at one time?
