How did you start exploring your submissiveness in D/s play?
I’ve been playing the role of distressed damsel since childhood. I was always the one who wanted to be kidnapped and held prisoner. My adult self is a (barely) refined version of this young girl, and I’ve been actively exploring D/s since I reached maturity. I like being forced to do what I already want to do!
What does your sub space feel like?
My sub space comes in varying degrees of intensity depending on the intensity of the play. It can range from floaty, warm and fuzzy to a deep, intoxicating, almost out-of-body trance state. Being in sub space is always a positive feeling.
How do you get there?
I can get to sub space through either a psychological shift brought on by subtle interactions that enforce my ability and desire to be submissive and subservient, or by the chemical response to scenes that challenge me physically – basically, by knowing my partner is the one in complete control, whether it’s through kneeling at your feet, a hand on the back of my neck, or being hog-tied in your rope. Service is also an aspect of my submission that I love to explore and one that puts me instantly into a submissive head space.
What is your favorite body part, and why?
The mouth. I love the power that speech can bestow or remove. I can easily be turned on by words and voice alone, as well as the physical sensations the mouth and lips are capable of giving and receiving.
What is your favorite S&M activity, and why?
My favorite is impact play, especially bare-handed spanking. Spanking has enormous versatility in terms of sensation and application, and it’s one of the more intimate ways of inflicting erotic pain.
Who is your ideal Dominant play partner?
Someone who knows what he wants and isn’t afraid to communicate his desires to me while respecting my own. Creative cruelty, as well as a sense of humor and fun, are a great plus.
What are your favorite play scenes?
I am versatile in my desire to please; knowing you’re taking and getting what you want is what turns me on. Any type of scene that involves that positive feedback loop is the best. I also enjoy scenes based on role-playing or a set goal. I like being told what to do and then doing it well.
How would you describe your play style?
I’m strong-willed but malleable; playful but never a brat. I enjoy being well-behaved and doing a good job, and I’m well-versed in protocol. Most of all, I enjoy being taught what you like and rising to those expectations.
What are some of your other passions?
Music is and always has been a huge part of my life – I’m a classically trained violinist. I also read voraciously, write when the mood strikes me, and have recently taken up visual art again.
I love the thrill of meeting new people, exploring new places and experiencing new things.
I find that the pleasure I get from wonderfully prepared food (whether making, serving, smelling, observing or consuming) is analogous, if not the same, as the pleasure I take from soft lips and warm skin. I find I’m often confused as to why everyone else doesn’t seem to experience food and sex in this interwoven way. They are, after all, the only two activities that utilize all five of our senses.
