Last time we talked about building structure into our dynamics using rules and protocols. And of course, whenever you talk about setting up rules, someone talks about what happens when rules are broken. So, next time, we will be delving into how structure is maintained (or not) through the use of various methods of discipline and punishment.
What are your approaches to discipline, including self-discipline? Did you struggle with whether or not to institute punishment? What are some behavioral consequences that have worked in your dynamic? Which did not? How does this benefit the Master, the slave, the dynamic, overall? Do you even “believe in” a punishment dynamic? Why or why not?
Let’s discuss some of these questions. And feel free to bring your own.
At MAsT (Masters and slaves Together) Metro New York, we discuss real life M/s. You do not have to be in an M/s relationship to attend, just interested in learning the real life issues that power exchange relationships deal with. We meet at the LGBT Community Center at 208 West 13th Street, NYC, between 7th and 8th Aves. from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm. The admission is $4 for members, $5 for reciprocal members/students with ID and $8 for all others.
As always, please feel free to bring your own snack and/or something to share with the group. Also, please remember to check the board for room number.
