Why are poly relationships more acceptable in bdsm? I know no vanilla or NORMAL people who would put up with this. It seems men are quite happy to find gullable females to add to their little harem and then we can all play at being happy. What happens when one person gets more attatched to another or one gets more attention than the other.? Please do not tell me jealousy does not occur as it is human nature.
Why is bondage and spanking more acceptable in BDSM? And I do know a few 'nilla people that are into poly relationships and it works great for them. As far as normal goes... well.... define "normal"? I "normally" get up around 4:30 am, I "normally" watch about 4 hours of television a week at the most, I "normally" eat cereal for breakfast, although the cereal may vary week to week.... I do not set the precedent for what others do on a daily basis and neither to do you. What my neighbor would consider normal I may consider "strange" and what I would consider normal she may see as deviant. And I am FAR from gullible, our submissive is also very well educated, experienced, intelligent and strong.
As far as human nature goes.... shall we go there? The "hunter/gatherer" mindset is also human nature yet you don't see everyone out shooting their dinner nightly, grocery stores came into being and we learned to suppress that. Anger is also human nature, but with the laws and prisons being abundant, we also learned to suppress that. Lust is sincerely human nature yet we are taught to suppress that at inappropriate times. We, as a society, have learned to overcome and suppress so many traits that are "human nature" and yet I hear all to often that jealousy is part of our natural makeup and cannot be overcome and done away with.... explain that please? If it is your nature to be shy, then you can either be shy or you can get past it. If it is your nature to be pouty.. then either be pouty or get past it.... sooooooooo, if it is your nature to be jealous, then either be jealous or GET PAST IT. It is NOT something that is carved in stone, it is not part of your genetic make up, it is not a part of you like your arm or leg is... it is an emotion (albeit a harmful and useless one IMNSHO), if you don't like it.... get past it. It does NOT have to rule your life, your thinking or your way of doing things. And just because you allow it to reign over your life does not mean that everyone else does too.
I will gift my submission to ONE man as I feel that makes it worth more than if I gave out my favours to the whole household.
The "worth" of ones submission doesn't come from who or how many they give it to... The "worth" of ones submission comes from within and is mirrored in the relationship(s) that one holds dear to them. As much as EmeraldSlave and I disagree on so many points, her submission, her desire to submit, her personal "worth" holds as much value as any monogamous submissive/slaves in each and every relationship she holds dear to herself. (sorry Em.... I don't normally use examples like that, hope you don't mind)
Don't ask, trust me, you won't like the answer... no one ever does.
