I think the Mask which alienate SM from an ordinary life.
A person play various roles in the social life, and He or she controls him(her)self in compliance with an occasional goal or an atmosphere. I respect such virtue as the supreme intelligence of a human kind. Aristoteles said that "A man is a social animal". I think that it is the truth.
However you should think it twice carefully. Who is the person that control oneself? Is there another person who live secretlly in another world?
A lot of persons live their lives not to release their sexual dream and desires. Or they oppress their sexual wants and passions. Why? A social life is superficially far from sexual things and it is more convenient than not to touch sexual matters. Do you understand it ?
So that, the very sensitive person feels ill at ease to wear masks for the social life on the face, and is conscious that the real sexutal desires is stirring under the masks.
SM is the process to get back to the real life while peering the socaial masks. And it is a holy ceremony to unite with a real persona.
A man is standing in front of me. He will tear off his masks with my dominissive help. It will be whipping or Submissive training. As his stepping up the stair,he will peering the masks and will get a real himself.
But everyone will not be able to execute it successfully. It will be holy ceremony for selected sensualness.
It's all for today. If you meet your real one, come and see me.I am waiting for you,
