It’s hard for an educated woman to turn her head off. That’s part of the joy of being a submissive. None of the decisions are yours. When you can’t refuse anything and can’t even move, those voices in your head go silent. All you can do, and all you are permitted to do, is feel.
― Cherise Sinclair
This quote is from Dark Citadel, a novel which was written by Cherise Sinclair. I chose it to write about because I completely empathised with it: one of the reasons being submissive feels so good and right to me is the lack of decision-making and control I have. It made me think of subspace and the sensations I get when I’m in it. The way my body becomes hyper-sensitive and my mind becomes clouded is so amazing that it leaves me just as I am. When I’m in subspace I don’t worry about anything; my usual fears about my body or what others think evaporates and my entire being becomes hostage to my senses.
It’s truly an experience I think everyone should have at least once!
You look up when you wish to be exalted. And I look down because I am exalted.
― Friedrich Nietzsche
I think Nietzsche might be the man I will quote the most when it comes to BDSM. Whether he means it or not, a lot of the things he said can apply to a BDSM relationship.
Take this one for example: there is an implication that the person he is talking to is looking up at him while he looks down upon them. This position is often used by Daddy and I at events and in his home. I spend a lot of time on my knees staring up at him and just by doing so I feel very fulfilled. I’ve heard that a lot of other Doms and subs do this too, so Nietzsche in my mind will always be a kinkster.
