MAsT Metro NY presents: “Serving in M/s” Presented by Master Don & orja
In many M/s relationships, service is one of the primary components. In some M/s relationships, it IS the primary component. BDSM may take a back seat to those whose idea of service is what drives their relationships. How many ways are there to serve? How can service be kept fresh in long term relationships? What are the driving factors for those who serve and what do those they serve find so appealing? In this class, Master Don and orja will explore service and what role it takes in their relationship.
