A great question from Aurore, who asks:
What is the one piece of advice you wished someone had given you when you starting exploring your submission?
i think it would be something along the lines of 'don't trust just anyone who is willing to Dom you!' With casual play you are so keen to experience things and have this great need to explore your submission. So when i tried it i found myself trying too hard, to an extent. Sure it was fun and exciting at the time. i'm not knocking casual play either. i let my imagination run away with me, and i was also trying to be someone i wasn't. Looking back, i was a little foolish and rushed into something that turned on me. We all make mistakes and we learn from them. That's how life goes. It is so hard to build up trust in a short space of time too and it certainly doesn't happen overnight. i am so glad to say that i have found someone that i can trust my life with.
So i hope that answers your question and thanks, it was a real thought-provoker.
