|Frankly, it's stupid and unhelpful to make |
dominance look any more complicated
than it actually is.
This particularly pernicious meme is a good example.
It implies that a "true dominant" take on some sort of paternalistic leadership role in the relationship. Not all dominants or subs actually want this!
It also doesn't really make sense. Dominant is a sexual orientation (or near as damn it). Substitute in "Gay Man" for dominant, and the meme is revealed as... special.
"Would you still be a Gay Man even if it meant that there would be absolutely no sex involved?"
I mean, really?
And what parts of the lifestyle are non-sexual? Speaking as a sub, power exchange itself is sexy, and any resulting punishments, commands, standing orders and protocol turn me on.
Frankly, it's stupid and unhelpful to make dominance look any more complicated than it actually is.
Especially if you are a sub, think twice before you pass on stuff like this.
Ask yourself whether this would encourage or discourage a young dominant from exploring his or her sexuality!
There are reputed to be a lot of (mostly) men who use dominance as "just" a way to get the sex they like, and lots of it.
To me that is actual dominance: using BDSM to get what you normally couldn't or shouldn't have. For a certain kind of sub, that kind of dominant would be fantastic. The only challenge would be not giving it away for free: insisting that they use the tools of BDSM to get what they want.
|"Dominants: If you don't like service |
topping, please don't pretend that you do."
However, this type of dominant is dishonest because they misrepresent themselves as more mainstream kinksters, interested in negotiation and fulfilling their partners' needs... essentially dominants who service top.
But then if your submission is all about your needs, then don't you really need a "top"? Aren't you really mostly a bottom misrepresenting yourself as a sub?
If I was less charitable, I would find this situation amusing: Fake sub encounters fake top... hilarity ensues...
A better meme might be: "Dominants: If you don't like service topping, please don't pretend that you do."
