What I Look For in a Submissive Partner
From my blog, BDSM: Things You Need to Know. Here’s the list of characteristics that I look for in a submissive partner. Excerpt:
Possesses a strong will. As a friend of mine who’s the master half of a master/slave pair likes to say, “A good sub has a spine of steel.” …
Wants kink for the way it makes her feel. Doing it “for his sake” may seem like a submissive attitude, but activities which are not rewarding to her, either during or afterwards, are ultimately depleting and unsustainable.
Shares a few significant, non-kinky passions with her partner. D/s partners must have vanilla chemistry; they can’t spend every minute of the relationship in a kinky fog …
Attentive and curious. These are essential for a submissive partner, since she has to learn to read her dom, and to respond to his needs or goals in any situation where they’ve agreed she will submit.
