When Master Hurts
Presented by Sage
Friday Aug 19, 2011 – doors open at 7:30pm

The Dominant – strong, determined, tough, in control – but not invincible. What happens when the Dominant in a D/s-M/s relationship is afflicted with pain, be it physical or emotional? It’s not a subject we like to think about, but is more common than we’d like to admit and we often must find ways to handle it. What responsibilities does the Dominant have to her/himself and to her/his submissive or slave? How can s/he help that bottom feel safe and guide that boy or girl on how to use his/her talents to help the Dominant through the pain? This class will various types of physical and emotional pain that a Dominant may have to manage and will also discuss ways a person in service can help, ease, and support her or his Master, Daddy, Mistress, Mommy, or Top. At some point, every Dominant has to deal with one kind of pain or another. Join Sage, along with her boy Laine, as they share ideas and personal anecdotes to explore ways to use the D/s – M/s dynamic to overcome the difficulties and bring healing and satisfaction to both people in the relationship.
