Here are just a few things we have learned from reading BDSM novels.

  1. All the power lies with the submissive. They are one safeword away from stopping the scene.
  2. Aftercare and cuddling are extremely important in the Dom / sub relationship and the mark of a good Dom.
  3. There are three types of spankings as described by Master Marcus Cavendish in With this Collar by: Sierra Cartwright ”One is punitive. Another is erotic. Another can be for reinforcement.”
  4. The key components to a healthy Dom / sub relationship are trust and communication.
  5. Naughty subs get trussed up.
  6. A crop is not just used for horse riding.
  7. A Dom’s role is to push a sub’s limits, and still know when to stop.
  8. Punishment is not always a bad thing.
  9. A locked collar can mean the same thing as wedding ring.
  10. To be a true sub you need to be a little bratty to keep your Dom on his / her toes.
