Master/slave dynamics are different than many other relationships within the BDSM lifestyle. Some of these activities may seem extreme but should only be completed between consenting partners. Informed consent (consent with knowledge of the activities and risks involved, also known as RACK) should always be given freely, without coercion or manipulation. If you feel you are engaging in activities that you are not comfortable with, please check abuse resources for organizations that can help.
One of the main factors in feeling truly Owned is to be constantly reminded throughout the day of Master’s/Mistress’ control. These reminders can be subtle or really obtrusive. The more often a slave is reminded of their submission, the deeper it becomes….and the more fulfilling. So here are some ideas you might want to try. And no matter what rules you decide to make on your own, please be consistent. If you’re unwilling to take the time to enforce the rules you make, then there may as well be no rules at all. There is nothing in the world that will make a slave feel less loved than to have a Master/Mistress who ignores their transgressions and does not exert their Dominance.
