I do not agree at all about the claim of some that the submissive mind is very simple.
They may have points in common, but every mind (submissive or not) is different, with its own characteristics. Is that you carry the same way all submissives? Really don’t you bother to inquire within or test what stimuli and trigger which move them (and which block them) to take them wherever you want to arrive?
I can understand that many enjoy only the physical Domination, without further implications, but for me it is not enough. I need to possess a mind, sometimes even before going to a physical plane.
What good is in a body that gives me when he wants and vanishes when not? Yes, I’ve played occasionally with mongrel, a “here I catch you here I’ll kill you“, but nothing compares to satisfy the instinct of property, to own inside and outside, to have a real and true surrender.
We can enjoy enormously a humiliation and a mind fuck, but to get to that point there is a great effort to provide knowledge, trial and error to learn to play with those emotions that will trigger the response we want and not remain a mere theatrical performance.
Working on the inside I get the best results. Without losing sight of common sense and personal ethics, relationships with my properties are as I desire, intense and real. And with ups and downs, of course, there is not a flat graph, as it is played with many variables and there is the sauce around.
Not talking about brainwashing, not confuse, I always say I do not like automatons. When a personality attracts me not want change, but change patterns of behavior and that the purpose is to please me in the way I want (by submitting their own desires and needs and prioritizing mine) and at the same time, the carrying out their tasks and obligations also constituting their happiness.
Of course, to get to that point you need a time of training and constant work that many do not enjoy because it is more convenient to assume that the submissive will do everything they was told. I think that’s how many D/s relationships fail, because if you do not enjoy the way (the steps to understand and submit each submissive mind), you will not get a long lasting relationship.
If you have a mind you will have everything. However, this property entails a number of responsibilities that many do not want to assume. And this is my opinion: all is well while the parties are aware of what they do and accept it 🙂
