Elsewhere it was commented that someone wasn't a slave, because that role meant there was no choice, he was a submissive. This brought me to think... what ARE you? What does it mean to you? How does it define you? How do you define your role? Obviously my pet is known as pet. His role is to be loyal and friendly and be my companion. He's spoilt and pampered. Hence "pet". Personally I would prefer slave!!!! LOL He's bordering on slave. I make most of the decisions as to what he should be doing and how it should be done, but he's not quite there with obeying me. So hopefully once we've got our dynamic sorted, he will be "promoted". So are you slave, submissive, sissy maid, sissy slut, pet, or partner. I know I usually don't like labels, but I thought this might be something interesting to explore.
