Trubled Times
...when you're having a "bitatruble"
- Celeste aka BitaTruble

I have always had an interest in BDSM, since I was a very young child but didn't have my first r/t session until July 3, 1982.  I knocked on the Dom's door at 4:50 and didn't go home until after 1 AM in the morning.  I think it's obvious it made an impression on me. That first session hooked me r/t on BDSM and I've been steeped in the leather vats ever since.  [continued]

- Miss Ayme

Miss Ayme is a MTF Transsexual who's lived and worked successfully as a woman for over 10 years. Currently residing in the Bay Area, California with her domestic associate, Chloe (a pure-bred Manx), she is the Editor of TGSF's (TransGender San Francisco) monthly newsletter, The Channel. After six years as a submissive (3 of them in a LTR D/s relationship), recent years have been devoted to expressing her Top space - derived from what she calls her "residual male programming."

Picture HereWhat's a slave for?
from a male submissive's point of view
- semanticus

I have come to believe that I am quite a bit the vanilla guy in addition to being a masochist. I have been submissive in sex all my life, and that is a defining part of me, not to be denied, pervasive, intense. But I have the same troubles as all men. Relationship problems, family problems, business problems, but they are not due to my sexuality, as I once feared. My masochism is a life enhancing part of me. Married to Mistress Cherie after a long search for Her, we are now 24/7, which works better for us than the bedroom M/s play we tried in the beginning. [continued]
