Is there anything about submission (yours or what you see in others) that you question, dislike or repels you? Was there a time you questioned or were resistant to your own submissive feelings?
I remember reading a story on the internet about 12-13 years ago about a D/s relationship. In the story, it was just the beginning of the relationship and was about how she, the submissive, began to submit to a Master, to give herself up totally to his control. It was heavy on degradation and humiliation, and the story (which I had found by doing a search on "bondage") both repelled and attracted me. I couldn't imagine the thought of submitting myself totally to another person, couldn't imagine being degraded that way and loving it.
At the same time it attracted me and thrilled me. I didn't want it to happen to me at all and yet I couldn't stop thinking about it. And being made totally hot by the idea of being in such a relationship.
It wasn't until last year that during another internet search for the same sort of story I discovered a website where people were actually living this way. I started asking questions, joining in discussions and found that I really, really wanted this. Not just a little bit, but wanted it in a way that was a fire inside me so hot I felt it must be attempted, and damn the consequences. This was when I finally brought it up to my husband, and asked if I could be his submissive, if he would spank me and tie me up. He said yes, he'd like that very much, although he didn't really want to hurt me. As I recall I said something like "Oh, that's good, I don't want you to hurt me either, I'm not a masochist." Which fills me with laughter these days. If I only knew then.
There is very little that repels me about other relationships of M/s or D/s. I figure it is their relationship and it is up to them as adults to run it the way they feel is right. There are some individual acts that I personally would fear to have done to me, but whatever floats their boat, ya know.
