41.   We all know there's a popular theory out there in BDSM-Land that in order to be a good Dom, a person should start out on the bottom. The reasoning: someone who learns to top by bottoming will have a more sensitive and compassionate attitude towards subs (having walked a mile in their stilettoes), and will be a safer, saner top.My question: if this is true, then shouldn't the reverse also be true? Aren't there realities of dominance that would make a sub a *better* sub if only he or she walked a mile in *our* heavy leather boots? After all, if a dom is really improved by living on the subbie side, it stands to reason that submissives would be improved by living on the dominant side too. 8/15/2002 1:35:53 PM

43.   We banter the term around a lot, but what do we really mean when we say we're having a consensual BDSM relationship? In my experience, a lot of people have difficulty communicating their deepest feelings and innermost thoughts. It can be a slippery slope when you get involved with someone who isn't able to articulate their feelings: how can you be sure that when they're giving you consent, they mean the same things by it that you do? 8/15/2002 1:40:00 PM

53.   Bringing D/s out of the bedroom is difficult for couples with children. Deciding to make your relationship 24/7 is a daunting task, much more so than most realize, but it is even more difficult when there are children in the home, how can Y/you manage to do it without it having an impact on the children in a harmful way? 10/27/2002 5:53:29 AM
