Prompt for today: Are there areas that you have pushed yourself to explore? Are there areas you want to explore but need someone to make you? Related to submission, I think the only area that I “forced” myself to explore was polyamory. Forced is a strong word here. I was in a situation where I had two different Dominant options that presented different opportunities and I wanted to explore what that would look like. Turns out it looked confusing and not viable but not because it was a bad idea necessarily but because we couldn’t accomplish the first thing with open communication among all parties. I think force won’t work on me as much as coercion. Not in the if you don’t do x I’ll punish you or abandon you or what have you kind of sense. More so in the questioning, listening, coaxing and then encouraging kind of way. That has worked amazingly well.
