Ranat, at beyond the hills, has some emotionally profound and perceptive things to say. I’ve read her before, but now I felt the need to bring the discussion here, since it reminded me of what we and Mousie where going through here, in the comments.
Personally, I believe there are no inherently dominant or submissive acts. I believe Dominance and submission aren’t even acts. They’re a way of relating. There are acts we associate culturally and personally with dominance and submission, and I think it’s dangerous to confuse either with Universal Truth.
You can say that again. It was both enlightening and liberating to read Thumper describe what he saw in the (porn) pictures in his Weekly Woof. Most of it is, of course, inside his head as he himself proclaims. But it’s oddly liberating to read him describe how lovingly, tenderly the women in the pictures take their pleasure where they will, tease the men and all ends up happy. With a happy ending for the women!
It just goes to show. My take on the pics was totally different before I read Thumper’s review. Imagination. It’s a beautiful thing.
