The Basics: A Collar

Many submissives and slaves wear a " (A band that fits around the neck and is usually folded over) collar" to denote their status and commitment. It can be much like a wedding band, except that only the submissive partner wears one. The traditional collar is a neck band in leather or metal, chosen, designed or even crafted by the Dominant partner. Some subs wear a "symbolic collar", often a bracelet or ankle chain, which is more subdued than the traditional collar and can pass in vanilla (non-BDSM) situations. It is not uncommon for a sub to have several collars for special occasions.

There was once a tradition that wearing a collar with an open padlock indicated that one was seeking a partner, a closed lock indicated that one was in a relationship. This symbolism is less common after 1995 or so.

It is important to remember that the (Rock music with deliberately offensive lyrics expressing anger and social alienation; in part a reaction against progressive rock) punk rock and (One of the Teutonic people who invaded the Roman Empire in the 3rd to 5th centuries) goth scenes have also adopted collars as a purely fashion item, so one cannot assume that all people wearing collars are into D/s or BDSM.

Do you wear a collar? Let's hear about it.

Welcome! We should have one helluva time here! I am a self-professed bdsm pain slut, so I've searched all over the web in search of the kinkiest fetish pics, bdsm stories, and bondage and domination movies I can find to tide me over till Master can take care of me in living *color* so to speak. I look forward to sharing it with you as we grow here.

Anyway, thought I'd turn you onto one of my favorite movie spots. It's so cool cause I don't pay shipping to or from the company, there isn't any time limits, and I get a free movie every 3rd month. They have AWESOME BDSM movies!! Two of my favorites are: Bondage Slut and Addicted to Pain.

So check out
U Rent DVD's

Ok, I am going to kick around the web and see what we can talk about next! I always find something about domination and submission, or sexual torture worth sharing with others!

Till later,
whips and kisses
