He Found the Key

He Found the Key

Are you up to speed on this awesome new writing prompt: #QuoteQuest, an inclusive, sex-positive prompt that runs weekly on LSB’s blog. The concept is simple: respond, through words and/or images to the quote posted weekly. This week’s quote is:

“The thing is that you brought this out in me. How could I want it with anyone else?” – JM Storm

This one is a no-brainer. As soon as the prompt was released I chuckled and forwarded the topic to Him. He agreed that it perfectly underscores how we both feel about our current dynamic and that it would be an easy prompt to respond to.

If you’ve read this blog for any time at all you’ll know that I’m no stranger to D/s dynamics and I have struggled with being a Switch and suffered impostor syndrome on both sides of the slash. It’s been a tumultuous ride but I have learned a lot about myself, enough that I can better understand my needs in either role, but particularly in submission. My previous Dominant D/s counterparts have roused varying degrees of submission in me but never enough to quell the impostor syndrome or stop the constant loop of worry and negativity. The difference now is that with Him I can feel the submission being unwound and gently, steadily pulled out of me. It’s mine, it’s in me, part of me, but He found the key to a locked part of myself that I had yet to discover. My entire view of submission, what it is, how it feels, what it can be, has all changed. For the first time I feel like there is nothing performative or calculated about D/s power exchange. It’s simple and easy and right. I feel like I finally ‘get it’ – without that internal struggle, my submission is clear and sure, and much more intensely submissive than I thought it would be. I always thought that I could submit, but with caveats (not the same as limits!) but with Him there’s no ifs, ands, or buts. He found the key that opened something exciting and new in me and I am finally, finally, comfortable and at home in my kink identity: my submission belongs to me, and I belong to Him.
