How do you feel about pain? Let us be clear, in D/s, pain isn’t a requirement. You don’t have to be a masochist or a sadist to be D/s. But it’s always good to have an idea of where you stand on the subject.
As a submissive, would you consent to a painful spanking as punishment? As a Dominant, do you want to inflict pain on your submissive? Does the idea of it turn you on or off?
There are no right answers with this one, but because it’s so common, it’s worth thinking about.
I’m definitely no masochist, but I’d definitely consent to a painful spanking as punishment. And I would probably endure certain amounts of pain—not because I would necessarily get off on it—but to please my Dom. More on that here.
