As Lion mentioned, we did an interview for the Huffington Post. I was fairly nervous. Lion is more accustomed to the limelight so he did fine. I’m hoping people who listen will understand that we’re just regular people who happen to do enforced chastity and power exchange. We’re no different from people who collect salt shakers or run marathons. This is our thing, one of our things, and it may not be for everyone, but it’s not so much of a stretch that everyone couldn’t try it. Does that make sense? Just because you jog to stay in shape doesn’t mean you’re training for a marathon. You can try enforced chastity and power exchange without jumping in with both feet. You can dabble.
Listen to our Huffington Post podcast and read the article too!
We’ve said many times that we had no idea how enforced chastity would go when we first started. I figured it was one of Lion’s harebrained ideas that we’d try for a while and both (definitely me) lose interest. I guess my mother was right. How do you know you don’t like something unless you try? This is definitely better than lima beans. But something happened along the way. We became closer than ever. I’m not sure that would have happened without the Journal or without our daily emails. Both the Journal and emails are a sort of safe space. Not that we can’t tell each other everything, but in a blog or email, you can think things out more clearly and the other person can digest what you’ve said without someone staring at them waiting for a reaction. Of course, blogs and email lack emotion and it’s difficult to gauge the tone. Misunderstandings occur. But that’s why we talk about things too.
I may have what I think is a brilliant idea, but in reality it doesn’t work out. For example, yesterday I got my purchase from my shopping spree a few days ago. I found a masturbation toy for Lion. It’s a set of beads on elastic that promised a wonderful sensation. We tried them and they pinched. So much for my brilliant idea. I really like to surprise Lion sometimes so I didn’t talk to him first. Perhaps if I had asked Lion about them, he might have nixed the idea right off the bat. Perhaps he would have said they were worth a shot. You really don’t know until you try. So now I’m searching for the next brilliant idea.
I guess my point is that there is no right way to do enforced chastity or power exchange. You can read all the ideas everyone else has, but ultimately you have to do what works for you. When we’re out surfing the web we’re looking for ideas. Some we know won’t work for us. Others are worth a try. Through our trials and tribulations, maybe we’ll plant a little seed in our readers’ minds. Something that they might like to try, or even take the idea and run in a different direction with it. And if they do, we hope they’ll let us know. We’re always open to suggestions.
