Fear and punishment

There was a lot of talk coming over the feed on Fet in the last week regarding punishment dynamics and those that say oh we don't do that, we are adults. It's one of those discussions that you just know are going to go down in a blaze of flames. In part because some people just can't or are incapable of stating their opinion without being vaguely insulting. What usually takes it up a notch is the drift towards fearing your Master.

Round here we are adults and we do have a punishment dynamic. Oh it's not as pronounced as some and one probably gets (a lot) more lee way than some, but it is there. The knowledge that if one steps over the line He will retaliate is always there. It might not be physical, He has this inventive quirk that lends itself to the punishment fitting the crime, though it has been in the past, but it is in no way to be misinterpreted as funishment.

That knowledge does make one pause for that split second that is required for the other part of the brain to go "oh do you think that is a good idea". See without that split second one will go for it... soft tissue, the chink in the armour... whatever it takes to win. Those high aggression levels, that float just under the veneer of unflappable calm, will come out when put in a physical threat situation.

We tend to regard fear as a bad thing, but fear is what makes us not shove our fingers in electrical sockets or on hot plates. Fear in itself isn't a bad thing at all, it keeps us from harm. So does one fear Him? Oh hells yeah. It's a healthy respectful kinda fear, but it is fear. And you know what? As a person one has no issues living with that fear J

I don't call it fear, but man, does he have the ability to make me squirm with a few words and a look. I don't know, maybe just a teeny bit of nervousness?

Fear is also a normal part of life. You're right fear keeps us from danger most of the time and can be a very good thing.

Mostly, I'm afraid he wouldn't like it if I admitted to sometimes being afraid of him. How's that for messed up?

But I adore him, and mostly he's very nice to me, heck, he uses lube on the back end, what is not to like?
