Saturday night we held a surprise dinner party for a friend’s birthday. She seemed pretty excited about being the center of attention finally. I think everyone should get the limelight on their birthday. It was one of the best parties I’ve ever hosted. I think it was a raging success. An awful lot of the reason for that is I didn’t feel any pressure to be “on”. People weren’t there to see me. Maybe the secret is to invite other peoples’ friends over.
It was neat partially because this was a bdsm crowd of type I don’t hang out with much. This was a Master/slave sort of gathering. And Daddy energy. Lots of Daddy energy. I got to talk about my opinions about those sorts of relationships. I got to talk about my experiences with people I have seen around in the scene for over a decade but never before have they noticed me. It was a weird kind of arriving moment. It was interesting.
I really enjoyed getting to explain some of my opinions. I don’t get asked about these topics much any more. I have a lot of opinions. The M/s portion of my relationship with Tom was the middle two years out of four. So we had a year to ramp up and a year to ramp down. I have a lot of perspective on that situation at this point.
And after they left Noah and I had crazy hot sex where he explained what he would like from our relationship in the future. I’m considering his words very carefully. It’s a lot more complicated for me to change the nature of my relationships now that I have young children and a marriage and a mortgage to consider. I’m not just thinking about what I want and what will feel good. I have to seriously stop and think about whether or not any given set of choices is sustainable for me. Without sustainability there is no future for any set of behaviors.
Last night in the middle of that crazy hot sex we had to stop for a while because I was crying too hard. I was crying because it has cost me a lot to maintain training that Tom gave me. It is humiliating to have to explain to random pick up partners that they have to give me permission to orgasm. Not only do they have to give me permission they have to kind of do it in a certain way. Most people guess close enough, but some people say things that make it so that I can’t. Or they think it is funny to tell me no. I feel like I don't get the final say on what happens to my body and that really bothers me. I am tired of having no choice but to submit this ownership of my body to anyone who touches me. I’m tired of being unable to have a private sexual experience inside my brain. I’m tired of constantly having to offer up my desire to someone else. Someone who doesn’t even understand what this gift costs me.
I am a slave without an Owner. I’m kind of tired of it. It is starting to feel demeaning. It is starting to make me feel like this enormous pearl is being cast before swine. They do not understand or appreciate and I feel cheapened by the experience. I want to figure out how to not need permission any more.
I’m 30 years old. I have not had control of my right to orgasm since I was 19. Maybe it’s time. I had a brief period where I started to figure out how to turn this off. It lasted a couple of months. Then Noah came back. It’s one of his favorite party tricks. It’s hard to tell him I don’t want to give this to him any more. I am tired of having to feel subjugated to new partners. It makes the barrier of sex very different. It’s a lot of why I sleep with assholes.
Assholes know how to use this. They don’t need me to stop and give an explanation of how I became so broken. They just want to play with it as a toy. Let’s press the button and see what happens! I’m tired of having my right to pleasure be out of my control. It feels like part of the larger patterns of me doing sex constantly for some perceived exterior motivation.
I want to have some idea of what sex is like for other women.
I told Noah last night that I can’t tell if part of me is breaking or mending. I don’t know what it means that I feel so strongly about getting rid of this now. I want my freedom, damn it. I’m tired of having to explain to every vanilla person about my former Owner training. I can never tell the story right in the moment. It always feels rushed and I’m trying to change gears and be a different person and it doesn’t feel like a good conversation to have.
How many other people have to stop and tell the story of their sex life going back to when they were 19 forever? I wonder how much this feeds my inability to get over Tom. I’m reminded of him every single time I have sex. I know this was done for him. I could never forget it. This is such a huge part of my body and my life. He caused this change in me. What am I like without Tom’s training? I don’t know. I’ve never been able to find out. It’s time.
