A Life of Service
For each of you submission will mean something different. Your submission will be made up of individual interests, experience, and skill. Hopefully you will temper your submission into a beautiful instrument of pleasure for your Dominant, but in order to do so knowledge of yourself and your drives is essential. If you have a Dominant partner, this is an important journey for both of you and a wonderful opportunity for growth. If you are a solitary submissive, understanding yourself and your desires in submission is important in being able to find and establish a healthy relationship with a Dominant partner.
I would suggest that as you start assessing your particular submissive traits you take an in depth personality test and complete Miss Abernathy’s Assessment. These are both good starting places for the development of specific skill sets.
