it is a funny thing actually, people often have a massive misconception of what its like being a dom. but actuallya dom in the bdsm relationship is the carrier of all the responsibility,. dom is responsible for both keeping the illusion alive in the game while allways thinking safety first

allways thinking , and modifying ideas. worrying about any given situation far more than he or she would ever show, for remember, illusion must be maintained. and while the peyoff of the sexual pleasure in bdsm session usually far surpasses anything else, it is a game that is controlled by a very meticulous master


so , yknow... domming aint easy XD

I've found this comic quite interesting for the past couple of weeks. It is almost not at all arousing, but conceptually captivating. If I had any sexual experience at all, I might just try it.... I'm at least interested in the thinking exercise presented here.

I once heard it said as this "Respect the sub because they have the power to say no. Respect the dom because they are the one keeping you safe."

It'd sound better as "Respect the sub because they have the power to say no. Respect the dom because they are the one keeping you from needing to."

Oh, this is so very, very true.

Ever think about condensing some of the pieces of the story like this one into some kind of manual or handout for aspiring BDSM players? It would save so much time and prevent so many problems. Then again, I suppose they could just keep reading Shiniez...

ever since reading your comics, you've made an amazing point about sex and relationships. i kinda respect and understand bdsm because of your amazing art and how gentle you've kinda approached your characters/story/sex scenes. lol. you fucking rock. :D

Indeed, which is why I personally do not partake.

But there is, as someone who is pretty much frightened off by this subject matter, the fact that I can very much enjoy the comic and characters a lot shows how the hobby really doesn't matter so much as the people involved which reinforces the imagery of it.
If more subject matter like yours came instead of the stereotypical stuff people like myself would not be as...not repulsed, not creeped out but less timid of it.
I can't describe it but the comic is much more supportive than anything else I have seen, which admittedly isn't much, but enough to get the vibe.

Also, thank you for replying.

you are welcome. and not partaking is perfectly fine. it is after all a matter of taste. for instance in the comic alans friend, and cassies brother chris and his girlfriend have zero inclinations to partake too, and  are perfectly happy doing their own thing just as the little group is doing their own :)

that is pretty much the point. bdsm people are in majority fun  nice people ( of course with exceptions but this is more human nature thing... no group is immune oto morons )  bdsm people just happen to like their sexuality spicy just like some like their food spicy :)  but aint nothing wrong with a good old traditional steak, in fact.. steak... is delicious! XD

I'm a student in England...we kinda don't get any good steak at all. XD

But yeah I see what you mean.
I'm just going through what I do, what I see and trying to wrap my head around it, especially uncharted territory at such a late stage in my young-adulthood. (Not just BDSM but stuff in general that usually is not really happening at all. Not getting too much into it I'll just say in terms you might understand if I don't fumble over the concept, I feel I am in a tiny social bubble made from latex about 5 inches thick with no knife or air supply to get out. XD

Basically keep up the great work and even though we may not be on the same sides of the viewing area you're still a great inspiration and source of enjoyment. :)

Hahahaha, it's really fun to see the insane amount of planning a dom has to do behind the scenes. Now whenever my friend has that phased out look in his eye I'm gonna start wondering whether he's thinking about his work or theorizing all the stuff he's going to do to his girlfriend tonight XD

I really do have to say i've learned a lot about bondage, and bdsm from your comic. Coming from a somewhat conservative catholic upbringing i had all sorts of misconceptions about it. I am glad to see that a loving relationship can come of it and it isn't all "whips and chains".

...and Lisa's lip-bite is sexy as hell, just tossing that out there.

gahhh.. i need someone masochistic^^ i never tried out much but, well, i am not dominant-not for 5 seconds-but i am sadistic.. this is a strange pairing i think-a masochistic, devote and sadistic switch. well, i tried the sadism.based on needleplay which i really like (and i am competent-PLEASE DO NOT AT HOME if you don't know about it-this isnt something you try without proper information.)
sigh, old times, old times. its sad that i didnt have played the last 6 years..
hmnnm
I may order a nice pack of sterile needles i think.^^ at least i have myself^^

Ice is a great solution to things.
It is a natural timer and works as a lock, it's cheap, can be dialed up or down based on ice volume or ambient (or body) temperature, and above all, it NEVER fails...
The hundreds of $ I saved with ice, you can't begin to imagine.

Oh, plus you can get the girl wet in the end. :D

You wouldn't believe (or actually, you probably would believe XD) how often I have to explain to non-kinky people how in BDSM, the dom is the real slave.

I lost sleep for about two and half days reading about wax once. Just wax. For sixty or so hours.

Ropes are a bit easier because, for the most part, you can practice a lot of ties on yourself. Or even on your partner in a non-scene context, to try it out while cooler heads are prevailing.

Wax can be downright scary if you mess it up, though. Doesn't matter how you're using it. I am unbelievably relieved, looking back, that our little moment of absolute whim didn't result in any harm.

I have been loving your strip and art. Rare among artists is your grasp of both the feelings and thoughts of your protagonists. I just this particular strip to respond to, because you touched on a very rarely understood truth. The guy (or girl) in charge, is the one with the responsibility to make sure everything comes out okay. This doesn't just apply to BDSM, but in every possible area where one person has to the leader. All to often though, those who must aspire to lead are the least qualified....

In any event, I'm enjoying your stuff and look forward to more adventures of your pervy gang.

Quite taken by the story, mate. Might I suggest "Red and Black" as a working title? Plenty of double entendre there, not to mention the hair.

Not a BDSM guy (don't knock it till you try it, I know) but I love how you've captured the essential elements of love and relationships in this motif. I particularly like this one, but from a Gamemaster's perspective. Constantly plotting new ways to imperil your playmates, while at the same time coming up with devious escape mechanisms.
