Not All Sweetness And Light

By | July 11, 2007

We’re not all in relationships, conventional or otherwise. But what’s worse than not being in a relationship? Being in the wrong relationship or wrong kind of relationship.

D/s and BDSM relationships are often misunderstood by those who do not understand them as being abusive. However in a well balanced relationship D/s or BDSM  the Dom and the sub fulfil needs for each other and in doing so can have a bond that, even if they comprehend it, a vanilla couple can sometimes only imagine. Being so close to the edge creates an interdependency that at its best is a beautiful thing.

Sadly not all relationships, D/s or vanilla, are so perfect. For some people, predominantly women but often men, a relationship can be stifling, ugly or even mentally or physically abusive.

Luna of The Iron Gate, brought to our attention a charity recently, one with a very specific mission statement. She will be taking part in a Blogathon on for that charity later this month (28 Jul 2007). So if you feel you can lend her your support and/or donate to her chosen cause, please do so.
