Well first off, Hi. I'm new to the forums (obviously) and also pretty new to the D/s lifestyle. I have a Dom who has done a wonderful job introducing me to all the various aspects of bdsm, but other than that, I have no real community to talk to or learn from. I'm in a pretty rural area, and it's a bit frustrating at times. I'd like to know how other subs (and doms too) feel about crying. On a few occasions, after some really intense play, I've just burst into unexpected tears. Is this a normal sort of reaction, or a signal that we are pushing too far? The first time it happened, it frankly scared the crap out of me. But it also felt really cathartic, and afterwards I felt so relaxed and happy. In day to day life, I'm a fairly tight reined person; crying in front of people makes me extremely uncomfortable. So the fact that my Dom can bring me to the point of tears--and I like it--makes me feel pretty weird.
