Lion is having eye problems again. When I mentioned it to a coworker she jokingly asked if I hit him last night. I said, “No, not last night.” She has no idea that I just spanked him on Friday. And no idea that I’m planning on spanking him tonight. No one at work has any idea what goes on at our house. Sure, there are jokes about training husbands and keeping them in line, but no one is really serious. Or are they? If they don’t know how serious I am, how could I know how serious any of them is about this?
That’s the good and bad thing about our lifestyle. It makes for a good joke, but it largely lives in the shadows. A dominant woman is portrayed, by society, as a bitchy woman. She’s overbearing and rarely has her partner’s best interests in mind. While that may be true of some dominant women in real life, it’s certainly not true of the few women I know of who are involved in FLR. From my reading, we’re all doing it to make our partners happy. Some of us are natural born leaders who run the entire household because that’s what works best for them as a couple/family. It isn’t much of a stretch to continue on to domestic discipline.
It’s entirely possible that my coworkers do exactly what we do when they get home. No one ever talks about it. Then again, we don’t talk about sex in general. It’s not polite conversation. And if “regular” sex isn’t polite, then “weird” sex definitely isn’t. So it lives in the shadows and pops up from time to time in joking conversations. Lion wonders if my coworker was only half joking. There’s no way to know without venturing into that impolite area. I’m not brave enough to do that.
