Thoughts on Dominant/submissive Relationships (part 1, addendum)
In the immediately previous post I spoke of the need for communication between a Dominant and his submissive. As a follow up to that, I direct your attention to a post at the blog missysubmits(sometimes). Here is a snippit:
So the silent treatment is a good thing. To him. I am still a sub and it still f—s with me. Not to mention a human being.
Expletive edited by me for those who may not be prepared to read it.
The silent treatment, as she calls it, can be a tool of communication. Many Dominants are naturally quiet and a lack of verbal reply seems natural. But the submissive in this instance did the right thing. She communicated with her Dominant about it. The answer she got was not one that pleased her, but she has an explanation now. And in this case, as in many cases within a D/s relationship, the submissive’s understanding is not required, merely her acceptance.
