Sub Journal 011: What We Need to Be

We cannot become what we need to be by remaining what we are. –Max De Pre When I first learned what a submissive was—and particularly service-oriented submissives—thought, ‘My whole life makes sense now! I’m going to be the best submissive ever! This is who I’ve always been! This is going to be a piece of …

Sub Journal 010: Perversion and Normality

One person’s perversion is another’s normality. –Julie Peakman This is the unofficial motto of my site and is the opening line of Peakman’s book The Pleasure’s All Mine: A History of Perverse Sex (podcast review, written review). The quote works in a couple of ways, but I think the overall message is that you’re normal …

Sub Journal 009: Tolerance of Others

How tolerant are you of others who live in a lifestyle that would not suit you and who live in such a way it does not affect you? Do you consider yourself open minded? How do you react when others judge your lifestyle as fantasy? I wouldn’t say I’m tolerant—I would say that I’m accepting …

Sub Journal 007: Revelations of the Past Year

007. What have you learned about yourself in the past year that surprises you? I’ve learned that I can be committed and passionate about something if it means a great deal to me.

Sub Journal 006: Submissive or Slave

006. Do you identify as submissive or slave or something entirely different? What is your definition for that identity? I’m currently unsure how to answer this. In a way, slavehood feels natural—and by that I mean belonging completely to another person and trusting that they have my best interests in mind while also serving that …

Where I am Led Month 04

Similar to the previous three months, these are the most thought-provoking (for me) posts from the previous months’ prompts from the Where I am Led workbook by Christina ‘slavette’ Parker. This month had five weeks’ worth of prompts, which is five guideposts and writing assignments each and ten weekly thoughts to choose from. Weekly Guidepost …

Sub Journal 005: Obedience

005. Do you find obedience to be easy? Obedience is easy if I’m obeying a woman I admire and respect. Then I want to please her and live up to her standards and expectations. Obeying a D-type would also be freeing, as I wouldn’t have to think, I would simply have to do as I …

Meditations for submissives 002

Like the first month, this month’s Meditations for submissives also comes from the second book of Meditations and it’s my second favourite piece. (After this one they sort of shake out evenly so I promise the next one won’t be from book two.) As the previous month, this could be used as a journal prompt …

Marcus Aurelius was the Emperor of Rome (twice) way back during the early triple digits of the common era (before the year 200). He was a Stoic and wrote a collection of thoughts that were originally titled ‘To Myself’ and are now called Meditations. Some of these would be very useful to submissives. The first …
