Saturday mitda and emmie went out shopping for a wedding dress (?) for a friend in the scene. Apparently they found a rather beautiful one. I stayed with the other girl’s Dominant (Master? Daddy?) and we chatted, did a couple of fixes to the car, put his juke box into the house from the garage, drank coffee, and chatted some more. It was a pretty good time, and it was good to hear about some of the issues other dominants have, particularly with the whole “being called a Master” thing. This was the day after the first MasT meeting in Austin, which the four of us attended. Even at the MasT meeting (Masters and slaves Together) very few of the Dominants were comfortable identifying with Mastery. Yet it seems to me a natural progression from Domination to Mastery, if not necessarily an easy one.
