Fascinating. This is a book that describes the relationship (near enough) that I would like to explore with my proposed wife.
My girlfriend said that she wanted to be my sex slave, all very well - but whilst I liked the idea of owning a sex slave I am also into self development and higher self. How could the two be compatible. If we are all equal and we seek to promote the best in each one of us - how can you own a slave? Well this book gives some very clear guidance on how the two parties in the relationship effectively end up owning each other - or at the very least having responsibility to care for/serve each other. Both very similar and both requiring a lot of respect, love and compassion for each other. So why do would you seek a consensual Master/slave relationship? - to explore the nature of the here and now, the voluntary giving of attention and being of service to others. Both parties in the end care for the others satisfaction and well being. No one is hurt, no one gives away their free will. Each person in the end DECIDES how much they are willing to give - and then explores how that affects the psyche.
I have explored some of the Bande Desinee that are available through Amazon - Minerva and von Gotha gives some clues - exaggerated though they may be - one how to work with a slave - The art of spanking being a favourite.
This is a very enjoyable read, I would have loved to hear more about scene playing and how this is all acted out - I am sure each of us is different and so would have a different way of proceeding but still it would be nice to have some pointers on this as well. In all other matters the book was thorough and comprehensive. Thank you Master Nage. I expect my girlfriend will be thanking you in due course.
