I very much relate to the woman he describes here.
On The Unknown.
As I have often related, I seek intelligent, strong, independent, talented, attractive, sensual girls. I particularly enjoy girls who shoulder significant responsibility in the vanilla world, leading, guiding, managing, or coaching. And while I have worked with experienced submissives, I have a penchant for novices and beginners who have fantasized and hungered for a proper introduction to the joys of BDSM.
If this sounds counter intuitive for an experienced, sensual Dominant who journeys on the fringe of darkness across several interests, consider again. There is no greater joy than introducing and/or training a girl like this. And one of the most rich, erotic aspects of this training is the unknown.
The girl I have described rarely confronts the unknown. She is in control in the vanilla world, and she has most likely controlled her vanilla sexual encounters her entire life. She gets what she wants, and she uses any number of methods to do just that.
What would compel a girl like this to strip, kneel, be collared, and be taken into my world - on the fringe of darkness? A place where she is taught to not think, not ask, not discuss, and not direct, but only to do, and do to the best of her ability? Especially a place where everything she encounters - instructions, implements, positions, etc. - has no basis of comparison in her life to date?
Simple answer. Because it is unknown. Because it is a challenge she has craved but never confronted. And because she hungers for the fringe of darkness - where she can release every responsibility and stress of her vanilla existence and fall into me.
She knows she will face many erotic predicaments and challenges. She understands I will bring her to the razors edge of pain and pleasure with implements she has never encountered. She anticipates being used for my pleasure, and being required to use all her sexual talents and abilities in serving me in deliciously erotic ways. Beyond that - she faces the abyss.
She will fall into me because she knows and trusts me. I have established this trust in a thoughtful, caring manner, over a period of time. It is a core requirement for any journey with me. And with this trust - the most compelling allure for a girl like this is the simplest:
This is the place where her fantasies become memories.
