I had a lovely little chat with a friend today about the creativity that's involved in BDSM. As the Dominant, I feel like I'm a storyteller, my submissive gives me the bare-bones, the acts they want to experience, their limits, their kinks. From there it's my role to weave that into something real, believable and often unpredictable.
How do you surprise someone with an action that they've explicitly told you they want performed?
That's the fun part about being given the reigns: the freedom of creativity and the possibility of surprising someone with their own plot. In my experience, that's the key to gaining loyalty from submissives.
