  16. I'm a brat and proud of it. And yes, you're right. If I'm behaving bratty, I'm PROVOKING a punnishment. I guess in that sense, people might not be satisfied with a submissing having control (because, essentially, that's what a brat is doing, deciding when the punnishment should take place and what for, right?).
  18. Some Doms need to be in control on EVERY level, concrete (actual spanking) and abstract (I call the shots, not you). So of course, some might view brattiness as a way of taking away control from the Dom. I don't think it's so much seriousness as it is a complete form of Domination. Frankly I find Doms of this sort to be very insecure and less manly, as they can't take any deviation from their ultimate control and percieve this as a threat to their position in a relationship. A real man can handle my having some level of control, because at the end of the day, it doesn't change his position in our relationship or my level of respect for him. At the end of the day, he's still the Dom.
  20. Of course, this is just how I handle MY relationship and this isn't for everyone. What we do is best for us and that's pretty much the sum of it. Not everyone is satisfied with that, obviously, and that's fine and good if everyone's a consenting adult and they're all okay with their own unique needs and desires.
  22. Hope no one takes this personally.
