“I really do think the best metaphor for D/s is a dance. And when you first meet someone, when that possibility of it first lingers in the thoughts it can be like looks exchanged across the ballroom, that curtsy and bow and then you start up with the music. Sometimes its magic in that first dance, smitten you want to dance more and more but the song changes from a waltz to a fox trot and your partner doesn’t know it…but you can show it to them, you can teach them the steps until they lead you again and in the end it doesn’t matter how you got there so long as you are gliding across the floor in their arms. Dancing together only gets better over time as you learn more of them.
So…just don’t be afraid to learn, to admit what you don’t know. It doesn’t lessen anything. “
— This is an absolutely wonderful metaphor, and so very well put~
