Lately, I have been introducing my dear boy to bdsm, teaching him about the importance of things like trust, obedience, limits, knowing where to draw line when those limits come into play, etc. I've been doing it through several lessons- obedience first. Currently, we are working on a lesson about trust as well as recognizing and respecting limits. Whilst explaining limits, I brought up things that might be limits for other people: anal, pain play, flogging, sadism, masochism (not targeting anyone, only using examples) Much to my delight, his face changed at the mention of flogging and he began to get bright bright red. :clap: I have long held that striking is one of my limits, albeit a soft one. I've decided to pursue that limit and see where it takes us. My question to the community is directed to the Dominants: Who amongst you has had such an experience, one where your sub winds up teaching YOU something, let alone something about yourself?
