Dominant or Master?

Being relatively new still to this lifestyle, the different titles and what they mean, the responsibilities they carry for their partner and the community interests me.  There are many levels of intensity within each title and each person customizes their own relationship according to their likes, dislikes and needs.  When two people are considering being together, whether in this realm or plain old vanilla, they are either compatible or not.  Safe, sane and consensual is a good idea in any type of relationship, but particularly in this realm, because it is so easy for someone to be taken advantage of in trying to be good in their perspective chosen role.

SirW has been my Dom for nearly a year now and O/our journey has been amazing, with its growth and slow evolution into what it is now.  Not only have i grown as His submissive, but so too has He grown.  He is more than my Dom, so it got me thinking about Him being a Master in my eyes...

His peers in His community have learned much about His beliefs as a Dom, as well as His experience with various usage of "toys" for control of pleasure and pain, both physical and emotional.  He is too humble when it comes to titles, and frankly, I don't think He really cares, but i have been curious about what makes a Dom, a Master.  

So...the research has begun - i read an article ( Dominant-vs-Master (steel-door.com) ) and find the information interesting, but would like to hear what Y/you (Doms, Masters, subs, slaves) have to say about the subject, SO...what are Y/your thoughts?

Please comment about Y/your opinions, if Y/you would be so kind!

Wishing Y/you A/all well,

  1. That is an interesting article on Steel Door - I'd read it a while ago. I'm new to D/s.

    I think there is Master as in they are more experienced etc and inside the community maybe they are referred to as Master.

    But I know too that some subs call their Doms Master instead of Daddy or Sir.

    I'd be checking back to see what other comments are. Thanks for an interesting post. :)

    Take care, Sky
