Okay, I keep starting drafts for this post and then scrapping them, looking for the perfect post. I was warned that doing that ends up getting you nothing. So here goes *something* I hope.
I know there are people who live the D/s lifestyle 24/7. But is that how most people approach it? Personally, I see it as a menu item, but I couldn’t imagine living it full time. Do those who do live it full time look down on the part-timers as dilettantes? Should we, in turn, look at the full-timers as one-dimensional? Can you whip a slave one moment and then do the New York Times Crossword puzzle with them an hour later? I’d like to think so. Though it’d be hard to concentrate with the weeping and gnashing of teeth going on so close to you. I guess that’s why they invented ear plugs and ball gags :)
