There seems to be a slight sense around that dominants should buy all the equipment, the furniture, pay the rent, getting in all the various fetish outfits and costumes, so that a submissive comes along and does not pay anything.
Let's get real here, nothing in life is free, especially BDSM, it is an area where the prices have always been high for equipment and furniture, because it is all bespoke, one-offs, which cannot be manufactured in large quantities.
I see nothing wrong with their being professional dominants, or semi-professional ones, and I see nothing wrong with amateurs deciding to charge the idiots who demand that they provide everything for FREE.
Obviously I'm not including couples who are in a D/s 24/7 relationship, as that is something else again.
Just me blowing up.
