This week I requested the submissives to practice their submissive poses. The poses were reviewed by myself and the other Dommes, feedback was given to each of the submissives who participated.
I chose to do submissive poses because it’s a great learning opportunity for both subs and the newer Dommes. I also wanted to do something that would start establishing a connection between subs and Dommes in the new public room. A public room will only work if you have a great group of core members. People who will speak up, answer questions, do lifestyle topics and feel a commitment to the group. What better way is there than to tear down the walls and strip the subs naked and empower the Dommes with the gift of submission?
While the poses may seem simple it takes a lot of confidence and the desire to please to make a great submissive pose. You need to really focus your mind to allow your body to get into such and exposing position. There is nowhere to hide, no shirt covering your rolls, no panties to take focus away from the dimples on your cheeks, no pants to cover your dripping desire to please, no mask to cover the need in your eyes… subs are learning to not be embarrassed by their submission. They are learning to be humble and to embrace their true values as a submissive.
I really enjoy the artistic nature of the poses. The structure, the straight clean line made when each is done perfectly. The surprising part as been how well the subs have taken the feedback and come back with an exceptional pose. I am proud of the way they have used the feedback to better themselves instead you just giving up at the first attempt. The learning has been the biggest joy an reward for me personally.
The subs that have done the tasks have started to gain connections with the Dommes. This has increased the amount of trust in the group as a whole. The depth of the conversations has grown. People are talking freely and offering support to those in need. Bonds and friendships are forming now that such a high level of trust has been proven from both sides subs and Ds.
The biggest challenge came with the “we aren’t a task group why are we giving tasks?” I had to step up and explain that it was purely educational and not a requirement for subs to submit or for Dommes to accept photos to critique. Its completely optional for both subs and Dommes to participate in the theme. I do get a lot of insight into the people who choose to do things versus those that question motives. So the biggest challenge came from reading into each and everyone’s motives for making the choice that did.
My advice to the sub: Practice! Setup a mirror and look at how beautiful you look naked and vulnerable. Love who you are as a person, be proud of the lines and curves your body can create. Be comfortable and confident in being a submissive that purity will show through in your photos. Secondly practice different methods of taking your photos. The light reflects in mysterious ways. Make the most of camera positions and different angles to really showcase your submission and your natural beauty.
