Since this list is *horribly* quiet, let's get a roll-call. :-) Tell the class a little about yourselves! Maybe talk a little bit about the kinds of things you'd like to see discussed here. Sing a song, do a dance... let's try to get this place moving a bit more.
Does anybody know how to make a bruise go away faster? I wouldn't mind it at *all*, if I'd done anything fun to get it. As it stands, big huge black bruise... and I don't even remember how I got it.
I was cruising the 'net, when I came across this article. I thought it was very interesting, and probably a good resource for new subs.What do y'all think?X-Posted to fem_submissives
well I did start leather_pagans many moons ago, just never got around to promoting it. I'm glad this is here.The Leather Pagans website is still up, btw, but I had to let the domain expire. It can still be found on tripod, however: Leather Pagans
On the flip side from what edana_ni_emer posted, how about the use of (magical) energy and energy work in scene? I tend to use it fairly heavily when working with Subs who are also magically adept. I certainly use energy sensing to check on and monitor my Subs. I've found energy monitoring, in addition to monitoring more physical signs (e.g., breathing rate and patterns, movement, etc), makes it easier for me to tell exactly how far a sub is into sub space, and, frequently, to better determine exactly how close I am getting to the limits of their tolerance (so I can take them closer to the edge and keep them there longer). I have also on occasion (with a sub who is also an HPS) used directed energy to strengthen and amplify the pain/pleasure she was feeling. And a particular blade I have can be used with directed energy as a further threat to intensify the fear in a scene. Although these latter two I certainly consider serious "edge play" and only use with very experienced subs I know well (and who, likewise, know and trust me).How about everyone else? Experiences? Suggestions?
Hope that introductions are allowed or wanted...if not let me know and I can delete :)I am happy about the formation of this community. I'm fairly well-versed in the world of kink, but I am a fledgling newbie in the pagan world. In the past several months, I've felt a deep need to explore my spirituality, but I haven't gotten very far yet. When people were talking about possibly forming this community, the ideas they were sharing about the intersection of bdsm and paganism were very interesting to me. I will absolutely love reading what people have to say. Although forgive me if I dont post/reply much because I am just starting my spiritual learning journey and dont have any experiences yet.So please, post away! -Sarah :)
Have you ever used the trappings of BDSM (bondage, pain, etc.) in a ritual setting, and if so, how did it work out? Did you like it? Did you get into the right head-space easily? Did you think it made the ritual or spell more effective?
Hello, I'm your host edana_ni_emer . Today, we'll be talking about Pagans in kink, kinks in Paganism, and Kinky Pagans. Gee, you would never have guessed, would you?Now, don't feel like everything you say here has to be related to both. As long as there's a vague nod to one or the other, nobody's going to complain. Well, at least I won't.So join up, have fun, and let's get kinky!
