Welcome to Collected Submissions (the blog). Here we will delve into many aspects of living an alternate lifestyle. While I identify myself as a submissive male living in a Female Led Relationship (FLR) which incorporates aspects of Domestic Discipline (DD), I also acknowledge diverse inclinations to fetishes and practices rooted within the umbrella of BDSM. There simply is a lot of 'kinky stuff' out there that appeals to me.

Additionally, even though I am a heterosexual man in a monogamous, committed relationship, I appreciate those out there who explore their own realities through other expressions I may not be personally familiar with. So, over time, you will find we will explore many aspects of "kinky living" in an open, honest, and non-judgmental fashion. However, that is not to say this scrutiny won't include some good-natured teasing.

Primarily, however, I intend to discuss my own stories, cartoons, and illustrations which can be viewed at my website of the same name as this blog. (The links are on the Home Page and in my Profile.) These offerings will provide the fodder for the discussions and observations that are posted here.

I hope you will enjoy your visit and leave with something to think about.

Starting things off....

Oh, "safe-words"......the cornerstone of "sane, safe, & consensual".....but what do they really mean? If you're a submissive on the receiving end of whatever.....just how safe are you? And if you are a die-hard submissive, just how safe do you really want to be? Granted, no one longs to be hospitalized by their partner, but how many trusted partners are looking to send us to the emergency room?

Now, don't get me wrong. I'm all in favor of safety and safe-words. And when it comes to new folks playing together early on, safe-words are a very good idea. But there's an inherent irony to the notion of 'safety' when you are willingly engaging in activities that most would not consider 'safe' even under the most agreeable of terms.

That's what this blog will explore. The humor and irony in the real-world manifestations of living a kinky lifestyle. Each week....or maybe even more frequently, I will take a look, and subsequently a poke.....(or perhaps an outright jab) at those topics that arise for those of us living beyond the confines of a vanilla existence.

So come along and snicker as you ponder these things. Sometimes the world is only tolerable when viewed with a sense of humor.
