Answering that question; “Does it help”?
Yesterday, I experienced submission again within the care of a purposeful dominant. My senses were overwhelmed and I left feeling refreshed. The anxiety that had preceded the play, about whether I should give myself and about the trivialities of existence, had gone.
So, now I feel some confidence that this experience can be positive and mindful. It brings me completely into the hear and now. It brings me back to a complete focus on a surrender to another and to the feeling of pleasure and pain.
