Romance [31 Aug 2005|09:34pm]
morghanx
Romance is a concept that seems to have been sidelined by society. But it is alive and well in the D/s lifestyle, just not perhaps in shapes that most would understand. In the Romance of Mastery and Submission, a formal dance begins. Protocols are created and followed. Honor is shaped and allowed to grow, respect is earned, and a structure develops to allow each to become their best.

This is not the romance of fluffy teddy bears and red roses (though those can have their place.)

This is the romance of measured patience, a weighty glance, a dance between supplicant and Divine.

Welcome to the Dance

the first dialogue [03 Jul 2005|01:35pm]
luxveritas
the following is an excerpt from "Slavecraft"
...................

"What are you?"
"i am a pilgrim - a kind of seeker."
"And what is it that you seek?"
"i seek fulfillment, the goal to which all other goals must eventually lead."
"And which of the paths to fulfillment have you selected?"
"It is the path that selects the pilgrim."
"Well then, which?"
"The path of joyous surrender, ecstatic suffering, and selfless service has chosen me, and at
length, i have yielded to its call."
"How did you come to know this path had chosen you?"
"In surrender, suffering, and service, i can feel light streaming into my life - my soul; away
from these, i feel only despair and longing for It."
"If this is so, what delayed your yielding to their call?"
"First, so few are called to this path, and then, only singly and privately. At first, I was afraid
there were no others like me. Second we are ridiculed and otherwise abused by those who
do not understand us. i feared such ridicule. Third, although we can usually make our
preparations for the journey without a Counterpart, none of us can make the journey itself
without One, and in this, i feared greatly that i might not find the right One."
"A Counterpart?"
"Yes, a joyous Master - an ecstatic Sadist must be chosen for the journey, for it is the paradox
of these paths that one of us may not travel without the other."
"So you're both on the same path together?"
"No, these two paths are parallel and sometimes quite close together - often touching."
"Interesting. Is there more?"
"There is always more."
---------------

a dialogue on the subject of Identity - the book continually asks the reader to dig deeper into the process

all this in the way of making a correction: the book is edited by Guy Baldwin with an introduction and afterward by Patrick Califia, who offers a brief "Mastercraft" in dialogue with text from the perspective on the Top

books [02 Jul 2005|12:32am]
luxveritas
currently I am reading a remarkable book:"Slavecraft: roadmaps for erotic servitude"

written by an un-named grateful slave and edited by Patrick Califia - chock full of essays that bring out the spirituality as well as the matter-of-fact actuality of the slave calling

it takes as its reference point the personal relationship of a male slave to a Male Master - but draws broader conclusions and is just full of wonderful information

does anyone know of this book - or have another book that they find stimulating on related subjects

The silence in this community is deafenning. I am looking to actively recruit intererst. Please post some questions, thoughts, perhaps an introduction of yourself. Thanks!

Gender and Dominance [15 Oct 2004|11:55am]
morghanx
[ mood | contemplative ]

I am troubled by something I see so often in the D/s world. There is a gender gap which is insisted upon by either Female Supremacists, or their equivalents in the Gorean style. Each side insists that the other was meant to serve, that they are in their place when serving. That their gender is the superior, naturally dominant gender. Yet both sides are populated with happy people giving and receiving service.

I think it is time that the D/s community opened its eyes. Some are born to serve, others to lead. Know thyself. Know your place, and the rest does not matter. So male, transgendered, or female; submissive, dominant, or switch, you have a place here if you feel that D/s runs in your veins as surely as your blood. Come, be welcome, and speak with your own voice.

Due to the lack of traffic from invited individuals, I'm opening this blurty community up. I'm hoping that more people will come here to discuss the details of Total Power Exchange and honoroable BDSM practices.

Single or Paired - How we deal with being alone [13 Sep 2004|03:43pm]
morghanx
It was mentioned by a good friend of mine in the scene recently that we are not people who do well alone. Everyone wants a lover, partner, etc. But when folks in the BDSM lifestyle are single, it seems to be more important than for the average 'nilla to find a mate. We Dominants crave the presence of our one, our constant companion and confidant. Perhaps the submissives and slaves out there crave the control and guidance, the sense of security.

What are the thoughts of those who lurk in this forum? Do you think it is harder to be lifestyle single than nilla single? What are your experiences with the process of a breakup and beginning anew? Does it take more time or less to recover and move on?

test post [12 Sep 2004|07:41pm]

this is a test, this is only a test.

were this an actual emergency, you would be instructed to torture the submissive until their masochistic crisis had been met to your satisfaction.

again this is only a test.

How this works [12 Sep 2004|10:37pm]
morghanx
I've discovered that folks don't know *how* to post to this journal. To post, just go as if you were updating your journal. Below the text box is a 'journal to post in' menu - select 'honorablebdsm' and continue as normal.

I'd like to encourage everyone to post a bit about themselves, where they're from, etc. I'll be doing this too, though all of you know me to some degree already.

Welcome to Honorable BDSM! [29 Aug 2004|04:25pm]
morghanx
The purpose of this community is to bring together individuals who I feel have a similar perspective on BDSM to my own. I will include Doms, Dommes, and any submissives who seem to hold the same basic philosophy. What that philosophy is will be harder to describe.
Since it is my project, I will be moderating all newcomers and all initial posts. My word is the final word. This community is invitation only, and all posts will be locked after the initial introduction. To join the community, you must contact me at skadai@yahoo.com

There will be directed threads on various topics relating to BDSM. Often these will come from conversations I’ve had with individuals who are seeking perspective and information.

Personal ads are accepted so long as it is not trolling. Sincere people have difficulty meeting in this lifestyle. I hope to create a tiny corner of the net where the likelihood of compatibility is significantly higher than all the pay sites floating around on the net.

This is NOT a porn community. Please do not post erotic stories or photos here. If you have some good material and want to share it, do so directly with the individuals who are interested. Non-pornographic photography or information such as event listings are ok.
