i went looking for quotes today ~ don’t ask me why i do that, i just do. i found a couple that gave me the shiver of pleasure and a rush of warmth ~ these two do it for me. i think i might even have used the first one before? But hey, it’s my blog, i can do repeats.
“I’ve been taking it easy on you, kid, can tell you’re having fun. But it’s all sensation to you so far. I haven’t pushed you, taken you out of yourself, looked for that place inside where you give yourself to your top. Sometimes pleasure can take a bottom there, but more often it’s pain that does.”
― Anne Thomas, Just Friends
Here’s another one, a bit more simple, that gives me the same rush.
i was thinking that just when i believe i can be resigned to a vanilla rest-of-my-life, that there are other outlets than submission, then i read something like that and it makes me shake my head. The longing is so intense.
i have the same feeling when i read Kia’s story “Chosen.” i can feel her character’s longing, and the resignation to not being picked and then ~ o!! Such deep joy…
Anyhow. As i was searching quotes, i came across this:
“Her intensity often surprises and mystifies the people within the Warrior Princess Submissive’s circle of associates. They will occasionally forget how deeply she feels and believes in her causes and, as a result, suddenly find themselves being pummeled in a debate that they hadn’t expected, nor wanted.”
― Michael Makai, The Warrior Princess Submissive
and i thought “What??” The Warrior Princess Submissive?
So i googled. And guess what. It’s a book. A brand new book. The description says:
Ever get the feeling, when you read about all the “classic” categories of submissive, that there must be one missing? You know which one we’re talking about. The missing submissive is the one that is the wicked-smart, strong-willed, uber-competent, ultra-competitive, synergistic, switchy, crusader. She’s no one’s doormat, never a victim. She is a kick-ass submissive for the 21st century. Think: Xena, the Warrior Princess, kneeling at the feet of Hercules.
This definitely isn’t a woman in a precarious predicament waiting helplessly for her White Knight to arrive and slay a dragon for her. This was a woman who, as she is kicking the dragon’s ass, smiles at the White Knight standing on the sidelines and says, “Hey, buddy! Feel free to jump right in and lend your sword to this fight. Otherwise, stay the hell out of my way!” The Warrior Princess doesn’t need or want a rescuer. The Warrior Princess needs an ally that she can rely upon in the chaos of battle. She seeks a warrior equal to the tasks that she has already chosen for herself, and is demonstrably capable of accomplishing with, or without, his help. She is willing and able to fight the good fight alone, but welcomes the notion of having a worthy partner, fighting by her side. And yet, when the day’s fighting is done, she is perfectly at ease with considering herself entirely His – heart, might, mind, body, and soul.
Why is she important? She is important because she just may be the hope and salvation of this lifestyle. There will come a day, in the not too distant future, when the Warrior Princess Submissive will be forced to become a combatant in a highly politicized war on the BDSM lifestyle. It will be a propaganda war that characterizes all Dominants as abusers and all submissives as victims of abusive and exploitative relationships. When she comes out of the shadows and chooses to fight for this lifestyle instead of against it – as many of her contemporaries will expect her to do – her strong moral compass will reassure those on the sidelines that she is doing what is right and just.
Michael Makai is the author of the Amazon best-seller, Domination & Submission: The BDSM Relationship Handbook.
Apparently, he’s been doing workshops on this for awhile. And while i’m not so crazy about the idea of being the standard bearer for the BDSM lifestyle, it sure feels like this description fits me in many ways. So i’ll be reading the book. Stay tuned for reviews.
