Roleplay – an interesting topic to explore. I consider myself a submissive and my husband a Dominant and Master. We don’t pretend or roleplay. It is true that the degree to which we are expressing our submissive and Dominance. We definitely express more of the BDSM when we are in bed/having sex. And because we are long term partners – We’ve been together for about 10 years – i think life gets in the way sometimes of our degrees. But as for the roles we are – as opposed to playing them – I feel I really am submissive and don’t think that I could ever play the Dominant.
We have done a little role play that does not have a definite line between role play and real selves and that is the Daddy/Little Girl thing. For me, it IS a big turn on, not only because it makes me wet even writing about it, but because it shares so much with Dom/sub. I like to feel vulnerable, when I know I am safe. I like the thought of being “made” to do things in any text, actually. I never was abused as a child and I never had sexual thoughts of my father, whom I adored and thought was awesome! Even when we play this role, I don’t think of my father at all, but rather of my Master. Because for me, it is all about power – whatever the name!
I think it would be fun to role play in some other situations. I think if my Master were leading it, I could easily fall into any role that he wanted me to be put in as long as I were still allowed to be my submissive self.
