I am so glad Patricia Green is hosting this month’s Spanking Round Table. She combines her wisdom, experiences, and creativity to come up with awesome discussions! Today’s posts are going to be very interesting.
When I started thinking about my post, I worried that I might not have much to contribute. Hubby and I have only been doing LDD for a few years now. We are both in our early 40’s, have been married for fifteen years, and are firm believers of equal rights between sexes.
But we do have a division of labor:
- I work from home, and help raise our children. He works outside the home.
- I clean the house. He does the edging and trimming, and anything involving bugs, spiders or really high ladders.
- We talk about our goals and plans together.
- But he makes the final decisions. And I submit to those decisions. (usually without any resentment )
So how did we get from former military officers (I even outranked him for a few months! 🙂 ) to the clearly delineated roles we have today?
Kicking and screaming, of course!!
LOL, I’m kind of kidding.
In all seriousness, my husband tried to take charge of certain aspects of our relationship, over the years. But I always fought it.
Tooth and nail.
If he suggested I clean up the kitchen, I would roll my eyes, and insinuate (most passive aggressively) that he do it himself.
If he had even DARED to suggest submission or discipline, ten years ago, I would have called him a ton of very unkind words, and would have filled his shoes with the gross stuff our dogs left in the back yard.
A lot has changed in the past five years. We have grown. I have grown.
LOL, I saw this picture, and had to share it! It’s so me! 🙂
Several years ago, I accepted the fact that I wanted to not only be a homemaker, but that I wanted to serve my husband. This was not very politically correct, but it was still something I wanted to do.
I also discovered my other side- my spanko nature. Even though it made me nervous to express my needs for dominance, and for boundaries, I truthfully explained it to him. And he accepted the role that I had been fighting for years.
I realized that submitting to him did not make me weak. He realized that being the HOH (Head of Household) , meant greater responsibility and greater potential for love.
We have had our ups and downs, as we have grown into our roles. But we have come so far in the past two years, that I feel truly blessed to have a husband willing to enter this relationship with me.
LDD is not for everyone.
And it wasn’t for me, ten years ago.
But the maturity and trust that grew within us over the years, enabled us to try this new adventure.
Today, I am a homemaker and submissive wife, who loves and thrives in her duties. My husband laughed when I showed him this part. Ok, being at peace in my relationship and duties, doesn’t mean I have a consistently ‘Pollyanna’ attitude. I have been known to get a bit ornery at times. 🙂
But here is what I know:
When I lose control or over-react to a situation, I know that my husband will help me. He protects me from myself. He sets boundaries. He empowers me with a firm push when I am feeling down. And sometimes, he spanks me.
I am not sure where we will be in twenty and thirty years. I do know that he will be in charge of our relationship, and he will be my lover and protector. I know that he will make the tough decisions, so I don’t have to. And I trust that he will keep me safe.
I hope that we will be more comfortable with experimenting in the bedroom. Spanking has opened in me a desire to try different things with him, and when he is ready, we will try them out. 🙂
DD, spanking especially, has opened both of us up to some new sexual experimentation. I hope that we will continue to explore our relationship and our sexual sides as we mature. He is already more willing to try new things, and I may decide to take his nickname (Mr. Vanilla) away, if he keeps progressing as he has. 🙂
Wow! Who would have thought one little phrase, “I want you to spank me”, could open us up to so much change in our relationship.
Things have changed so much over these past few years. I know the future has even more to offer us, if we keep our minds open and if we are willing to honestly communicate our desires.
I am looking forward to aging gracefully with my dominant husband (who looks even sexier now with his beard and a few greys!), and can’t wait to explore with him.
But for the time being, we are living our relationship one day at a time.
One spanking at a time.
