Special Presentation by Ms Rhonda and tomo
International Master and slave 2016
PLEASE NOTE TIME CHANGE: 1 – 4 PM
It is often debated whether love belongs as part of a Master slave relationship. To answer this however, we must first ask ourselves – what does love mean in this context? Infatuation, romantic love, family love, passionate love, companionate love, unconditional or conditional love, maternal/paternal love, love of a possession, love of a pet, soulmate love, spiritual love, brotherly love, tough love – what is this crazy little thing called love? There are clearly many ways to express and experience love. Perhaps the question is not “Love – yes or no”, but instead “Love – what type do you need?” Learning what type of love you personally require in an M/s relationship and then finding a match is crucial to success. In this class, we will discuss the many different types of love, examine how each may affect an M/s relationship positively or negatively, and learn to identify what each of us personally needs to thrive. This class is not limited to participants in Master/slave relationships; it is intended to be inclusive of all who are interested in hierarchical relationships.
Please join us for this special presentation by Ms Rhonda and tomo, International Master and slave 2016. Come share your personal experiences and let’s talk about LOVE in a supportive environment! And as always, please feel free to bring your own snack and/or something to share with the group.
