Diary of a Submissive: A Modern True Tale of Sexual Awakening by Sophie MorganIn Diary of a Submissive, Sophie Morgan candidly explains what exactly an independent, 21st century woman gets out of relinquishing her power and personal freedom in a submissive relationship with a dominant man for their mutual sexual pleasure.
In the wake of Fifty Shades of Grey, here is a memoir that offers the real story of what is means to be a submissive and follows Sophie’s story as she progresses from her early erotic experiences through to experimenting with her newfound awakened sexuality. From the endorphin rush of her first spanking right through to being collared, she explains in frank and explicit fashion her sexual explorations. But it isn’t until she meets James, a real life ‘Christian Grey,’ that her boundaries and sexual fetishism are really pushed. As her relationship with James travels into darker and darker places, the question becomes: Where will it end? Can Sophie reconcile her sexuality with the rest of her life, and is it possible for the perfect man to be perfectly cruel?
Daring, controversial, and sensual, Diary of a Submissive is filled with a captivating warmth and astounding honesty such that no one— man or woman—will be able to put Sophies story down.
Why I Chose to Be a Submissive in My BDSM Relationship
Female submission describes an activity or relationship in which a woman submits to the direction of a sexual partner. The submission can be voluntary and consensual , such as in BDSM. The dominant partner is usually a man, but can also be another woman, or there can be multiple dominant partners simultaneously. The submissive woman may derive sexual pleasure or emotional gratification from relinquishing to varying degrees control to as well as satisfying a trusted dominant partner. Submission can take the form of passivity or obedience in relation to any aspect of conduct and behavior. Submission can be to a partner in an interpersonal relationship , such as allowing the sex partner to initiate all sexual activity as well as setting the time and place and sex position.
It is a subset of BDSM. In other cases, it can be intensely physical, sometimes crossing into sadomasochism. Those who take the superior position are called "dominants"—Doms male or Dommes female —while those who take the subordinate position are called "submissive"—or subs male or female. A switch is an individual who plays either role. Two switches together may negotiate and exchange roles several times in a session. The term dominatrix usually refers to a female sex worker who dominates others for pay.
Aziz, We Tried to Warn You
Like all of us in the throes of MeToo, I have been taking rigorous inventory of my sexual history, rolling back the tape on past highs and lows: the disturbing teenage experiences no longer chalked up to miscommunication, those times I gave in because it was easier, some unwanted advance successfully fended off. And then there are the memories of being brusquely, and without permission, pushed up against a wall — and loving it. In fact, those were the steamiest moments I could recall. I wondered if I would ever experience such an unscripted embrace again — and then immediately worried: Did my secret desires make me a traitor to MeToo and what it stands for? No, according to Michaela Boehm, a sex and intimacy therapist and psychologist; they make me pretty normal. Boehm said. Theories differ on whether this preference is a result of societal norms or biology or both.
When I first met Doug on Match. He had a big position with a top financial firm; I headed up public relations for a health-care nonprofit. On our first date, although we only kissed, he told me I wouldn't be the same when he was done with me. I knew he was right—I just didn't know what it meant. Neither of us did.
