My viewpoint....

I hate to interrupt the story I've been telling...but a couple of things that I've read during the past couple of nights compelled me to break into the story line....

[blog kelli4u2dew] & [blog mzhunyhole] have both written powerful blog posts about being abused. I have also read other postings by some of the ladies telling the same story, along with some of the guys relating some incidents of abuse that they were familiar with.

That got me thinking about it, but there is some assmonkey on here who posted something about 'women love abuse' and that kicked me in the gut. NOTE: I'm not going to give this assclown's name because he's not worth the typing..suffice to say, I read his blog & he's a bitter old man who likes to pick on people better than himself...which is damn near everybody)

Understand...I am just a man, so I won't even begin to say "I feel what you're going through"...that's an insult. I can say I've worked crisis hotlines and heard the trauma from battered women and little ones on the other end. I have seen abused individuals in the hospital...and yes, I've gotten drunk with cops who've taken loved ones to the morgue to view the end result of abuse and are trying to drown out the tears with Jack.

I am also a Dominant, an active participant in the BDSM Lifestyle. I fear that most people will look at me and others like me and say, "BDSM...abusers...one in the same."

I can say that I have, nor will I ever abuse my lady or any woman that ever plays with me, but how do I prove it? I just know in my heart what I'm capable of doing and what I won't do. As I've said before, I'd throw myself under a train before I would really hurt my lady. Granted, I'll spank her rear end until she squeals...but there is a difference between play and abuse...a big damn difference.

I have nothing but utter contempt for any so called 'man' who feels he has to make himself better by striking a woman or someone smaller than himself. Most times, abusers are f*cking cowards....let a man step up in their face and the abuser, the big man, will cower in the corner, blubbering and pissing on himself. Makes me want to vomit.

I only ask, dear reader, that you please don't lump those of us who like a little 'kink' in our sex lives with those cowardly bully bastards who have to terrorize a woman to feel like men. That's all....thanks for your indulgence.

Bravo NG! i do my best to point out in my autobiographic stories that although Master K was a Lifestyler He was a dispicable criminal. i do my best to get people to realize there IS a very damn big difference between real BDSM and the abuse that i grew up in. My story isn't being told to tantalize, its being told to address the real dark issues in the lifestyle. my desire is to get folks to see the difference between a loving and consensual lifestyle person and the negative abusive criminal that simply hides beneath the banner of BDSM. i welcome Your comments and the critisms so that i not fail in this endeavor. i can't say that the One i grew up under was a coward...but i can say He was a criminal, because pedophelia IS a crime. * steps off soap box and just lets the light shine out from the darkness* *hugs to You and Lady* c

chelle,

Your post was also one that inspired me to write this...I winced when I read what you wrote and couldn't come up with an appropriate comment at the time. You've shown more bravery than any man I've known...your sister as well, bless her heart.

btw....I spoke with Pinhead earlier....he's set aside a very 'special' place for K......know what I mean, my dear?

an abuser has no thought for the victim

a Dom holds the interests of his submissive before his own -the utter and complete control that He must have is based on raising him/her to another level of consciousness.

some will never get it my friend

and some abusers hide in BDSM - we have all met them

so what to do?

shine the light like Chelle says

like You and lady do everyday

I actually read an article on this the other day pointing out the differences. The condenced version would be the key word being CONSENT, the submsive gives their consent knowing their master will not harm them, they both receive pleasure from their actions. The abused women (or man, it has happened) does not give their consent to be beatin or battered, more often than not they have no say, and the only one receiving any type of pleasure, if you can actually describe it as such, is the a-hole that thinks brute force makes them more powerful.


Nightguy_1961 replies on 4/28/2006 8:43 pm:
I have read articles on this subject, taken part in discussions on the subject...but still, people on the outside looking in still lump us together.

Hopefully, the more of us who speak out, maybe...just maybe...people will hear us...

I concure with your thoughts NG.I feel even though i don't know this particular person, that as you said abusers are cowards.I will also say that no woman i have ever been with or played with in the lifestyle has even come close to being abused.The one point that sticks out the most is and i feel this person is failing to realise is the fact that in lifestyle play all is consensual.And if a Dom is true to his word or is or has entrusted the submissive, then he will either stop when he knows she has had enough or until the safeword is called.It is so easy to hide behind words yet cower under in the presence of a stronger being.And while i'm on the subject, online only Dom's!!,Get a fucking clue please!!!!!No more than a wanna be.

I agree somewhat with MzHuny. I have yet to get turned on by a flogging however your writings are very intersting. In some cases its also very erotic and a bit of a turn on. But I agree with you that being abused and BDSM is not the same. And that some people think so is to some degree worrysome. Mostly because lots of folks do not know the diffrence between the two. for whatever reason. What you and your Lady and other Dom's and Domme's and subs do to educate people helps a great deal.

Hugs,
Kelli

While I don't play in the BDSM lifestyle I know from what I have read here on the blogs about it that it is NOT abuse. I've seen first hand what abuse does do a family. As I commented on MzHuny's blog, I had a one time brush with an abusive man but he hit the wrong woman because I can tell ya that when I picked up the stick and started beating the shit out of him for hitting me he screamed and cried worse than a little girl. I'm not a violent person by any means but I will defend myself against anyone that tries to hurt me.

I knoiw belive me I have spoken to a few people and I was suprised when after getting my first and only spanking that turned me on to hear one of my guy frineds complain that "there is another one gone on the whole being beaten thing." It kinda upset me and made me angry cause I don't like being beated. I have been both at one time or another. And its not pleasent. But BDSM is diffrent. It is often a matter of trust and control. Too bad some people can't understand that. *sigh*


Nightguy_1961 replies on 4/29/2006 5:39 am:
It is about trust, control, and consent. Glad you understand it, Kellie.

Actually, BDSM is sooooo far from being abuse. It is the ultimate act of trust. It is the act of caring very deeply, even love. It is pure communication, of which there is NONE of these in an abusive situation. This, i know as pure fact, i'm sad to say

The bdsm lifestyle appeals to me, and I did a lot of reading on the subject, and discovered it really wasn't for me. Not in a full time capacity. There is a lot you have to know, and a lot that people don't understand about it. How doms know how to spank, where to spank, how often to spank, and how hard, and the reason they do it.

Which is completely different then just knocking the fuck out of a girl because your an ass bag.

This is a pretty good post, let me know if you plan on writing more about the differences, I think we could all use a little lesson in it.


Nightguy_1961 replies on 4/29/2006 11:23 am:
Thanks for visiting....from what my lady and other Lifestyle friends keep telling me, maybe I need to write more.

And there is much much more than just learning how to spank...24/7 BDSM relationships are just that....24/7...more on that later...

Wonderful post and thank you for it. I read MzHuny's post and it made my heart hurt. I was so happy for and proud of her for being able to overcome her past. Like many I have my history and so I respect her and others that fight back or take their lives into their own hands.

As for me, I don't dial 911. I think abusers should be dealt with in an dark alley by use of a baseball bat, blow torch and pliers. I've no respect for those sub-humans.

On a different note, one thing I'm really enjoying about this post is it seems to have turned into a sort of discussion on BDSM. I like that, as I'm very attracted to the lifestyle yet really know nothing about it. Also, it's interesting to read the comments of others - their questions - opinions - perceptions.

Thank you! Great post!!! Whisper...


Nightguy_1961 replies on 4/29/2006 11:28 am:
Whisper,

You are so welcome for your comments and your questions. It seems that mz, kelli, and a lot of other ladies are stronger than most men in putting their personal history out for all to see.

As always, I encourage you to keep seeking information about BDSM...if you are interested. I will help in any way I can, okay?

Abuse is without consent.

With consent, not abuse.

"consenting adults" What part is hard to understand?

As an adult..I've not experienced abuse. As a child...well..it's not something that I talk about much. I've touched on it here and there..even in some of my blog postings.

I know BDSM is not the same as abuse. I've read some things about it..and understand the difference. Some of what I've read..I find erotic and arousing. I used to wonder..if maybe there was something wrong with me..for finding it so.

I've done some research on the subject of abuse..and find the information frightening. Thousands of women are maimed and killed each year..thousands of children also..by men who batter.

If only there were more men like you..willing to speak out..and step up. Perhaps..things could be changed.

HNB,

He posted something to the effect that "nice guys only get a kiss on the cheek; that women wanted to be slapped and choked while fucked up the ass"...he went on to say that he'd had more pussy than everyone combined; that at 61 years old, he was master of everything around him, yadayadayada....

I used the back button, so I wouldn't let him know I'd even been there; I think he's been banned after that comment....not that I really care...he's gone after mzhunyhole, papy, sexyfit, and other ladies.....I wish he'd take a shot at me, you know? I haven't gone after anyone in quite awhile....

Nightguy,

Thanks for putting up your viewpoint. And thanks to the many who have pointed out the difference, the trust and consent integral to BDSM. One more word needs to be added. Responsibility. When you take on the role of Dom, you take on the responsibility for the safety and welfare of the submissive. It is an integral part of the compact between Dom and Sub.
