New Blogs

It is always very unfortunate to see potentially brilliant LDD blogs start up and then frizzle out of existence. Take for example Newlywed Jane I was very excited to read the beginning of her venture. I keep hoping for an update, but so far there has not been one. I cannot help wondering how she is settling into her married life and how she is adjusting to being a lovingly disciplined wife? Blogs such as this are written by real people who come and touch our lives with their joys and struggles along their LDD journey. It is hard not to form connections and truly empathise with their trials and tribulations. Since submission is a very hard task for many women to accomplish, we read the journeys of others in a bid of trying to help us understand our own struggles along the way. Sometimes stronger friendships can be formed, the kind of open and sincere friendships about LDD feelings and aspirations which would not always be possible to share in the outside world.

The first blog I would like to draw your attention to Lovingly Punished has been in hiatus for some time. It is a blog written about a couples LDD journey, from the woman's (as_babe's) perspective. What I find very interesting about the postings in this blog are the very marked masculine/feminine dynamics between as_babe and her HOH. as_babe's HOH has (so far) not written any posts, but his silent authoritative presence is very much acknowledged!

as_babe's quote (from email):

"........we are D/s, (not BDSM--although we do practice some things) and that we utilize many/most elements of DD to add to and reinforce our lifestyle. I don't think I will be including any BDSM specific items to the blog, I don't want people to get the impression that DD or D/s must include BDSM because as you know it doesn't. D/s is how we relate to one another, while DD is what we use to keep things in order, and BDSM is how we sometimes relate sexually, does any of that make sense."

The second blog is a new one called Lisa's Domestic Discipline. It is a blog written for Domestic Disciplined wives where they can share their thoughts and opinions. Pervious posts include "Is Spanking Degrading for the Wives" and "Why do Wives Support Spanking. I am sure that you will agree that this blog shows a lot of promise.

Lisa gave me permission to quote her from a recent email:

"I do not intend to promote DD, because it is not for everyone. However, there are many others who are interested about DD or involved in DD relationship. My intention is to know about their opinion. In a nutshell it is about DD awareness."

Thank you ~C~ for the announcement and for your comments. I am what I call a self proclaimed alpha-female. I am a very masculine female. I don't do frilly, never have. Because of my natural tendencies submission is not something that comes to me easily or naturally.

Dear as_babe,

You are most welcome!

I don't think wearing pink dresses or being a girly-girl makes a woman anymore feminine. But I do think that relatively superficial things such as wearing an elegant dress and tasteful jewellery are very important since they can often make a woman "feel" feminine. However, this is only at a superficial level. True femininity is ultimately achieved through respecting, obeying and yielding to the HOHs authority - which you seem to do. The core of submission (as you rightly point out) is ultimately very sexual and nothing to do with frills and bows.

Thank you for blogrolling me!

All my very best,
