D/s without sex??

Have you ever considered D/s without a sexual component?

Woah!  Nope!  Admittedly, with sex is the only D/s I have known or heard about, but recent research has shown there is more to it than the norm.  (Go figure).  Although with my current situation it feels like D/s with no sex and most of the times, no D/s.

Would you be interested in something like it?

You know… maybe.  I’ve been so caught up in my current situation with my current Dom that I never really think about anything other than fixing what is wrong “currently”.  But… I like being submissive and I like serving so I am curious if I would like a situation where sex was not a factor.  Trying to figure out what that would look like is a little strange.  Would it be just service without any kink at all?  Kink without sex?  I don’t know.  The play and impact play that I like usually REALLY has me wanting sex too.  It is something to think about.

How important is sex to your current or future D/s relationship?

Sex is important to me.  Several levels and several reasons why this is so.

  • I am older (53). I was very late to realize what I liked and what turns me on.  It took a long time to get here.  A long time of suppressed feelings and wants.  Being older and finding this out late in life makes me feel anxious about postponing or waiting.  I feel a different biological clock ticking.  I have good genes, but I don’t know how long I’ll be able to sustain the style of sex I want and have come to enjoy.  Playing with a 35-year-old Dom, I’m not sure he sees my perspective all the time.  He is craving kids and hears his biological clock ticking but for different reasons.  It is complicated.
  • I played for both teams because at some point my dislike or disinterest in sex made me think I preferred women. Thought I had answered all my questions.  But I hadn’t.  Something was still missing.  After years of convincing myself, there was something wrong with me, I revisited my interest in Kink and BDSM.  (I had shared my interest with a potential boyfriend after separating from an ex-husband.  I told him I didn’t want to see him anymore, he violently raped me.  The whole time saying, “this is what you said you liked!” After I escaped, and the ordeal was over, I put aside my interest in kink and had serious trust issues with sharing that part of me with anyone).  I truly believe I have found my place so letting go of it now is difficult.  Sex is fun now (when I have it) and my Dom is very good at knowing what I like and need.  Although he is not in a good place right now, it is still something I want to hang on to.  I know anyone who has been following this has probably been screaming at the screen for me to move on.  But my current Dom was the first person I ever told about what happened to me.  Even my family didn’t know.  I went through the entire thing alone.  Partially because I was embarrassed I let someone that close, and partially because back then, BDSM and Kink were way less excepted or understood.  I knew that going public would destroy my family.  So, I went through everything alone.  The ordeal, the police reports, the court hearing, and trials.  All of it alone.  It wasn’t until I met my Dom that he made me feel safe enough to talk about it and share what I had been through.  Then he helped me feel ok about wanting and liking what I do.  Again, it is complicated.  Finding someone to trust again is hard for me.  But, maybe letting go of what I have discovered this far is harder.

Everything felt strange and new and exciting and scary… and then it went away.  I usually run from some of the emotions I feel.  I tend to be marinating in them with no way out.  I picture what close to perfect will be, but I just can’t get there.  Is it wrong to depend on sex and the kind of sex I like for the kind of relationship I want?  Could I have the relationship I want and not care about sex again?  So many questions.  So hard to figure out alone.
