Next Level

Anyone can tie their partner’s wrists and believe they are being kinky. Likewise, any square couple can get a little rough and assume they are experiencing domination. I mean, any average vanilla jerk can buy some handcuffs and think of themselves as part of the BDSM community. And yet, anyone who is truly into the alternative lifestyle’s community knows that this is BS. Being kinky is more of a commitment to an unconventional lifestyle than just jumping occasionally into a specific practice. This is not the point I want to make. But I felt it was necessary to include this sort of disclaimer before talking about taking things to the next level.

You see, when it comes to kink, I’m the real deal. I was born with it, and I’ve been practicing since it was advisable to do so. And I’m not just into practices; I’ve done a fair amount of research just to have a better understanding of what kink is about.

Nowadays, I’m in a polyamorous relationship with two women. Together, we have explored every letter in BDSM. Suspension, mental domination, subspace—it’s all on the record!

So, what we want now is to take things to the next level. In the end, there are just so many practices you can jump into, so many experiences you can provide yourself with. But, as I said before, being kinky is all about a lifestyle, and not just about adding one experience after the other, like you’ll do when traveling, for example.

So, we’re thinking about setting the conditions for a long-term experience. Doing a bondage scene now and then is not truly a lifestyle; living your relationship within the realm of bondage is. And the same happens with all the other practices.

That, for me, is taking things to the next level. Would you dare?

This is my Shibari story.
