As part of the reloading process, I have developed / improved /modified the rules based on the first go round (actually this was my fourth draft). I still think there is room for improvement but it would not be much of an adventure if we got it right the first time!
The new rules are posted and I created what I call “The Ten Commandments“. A list of the over-arching guidelines and things that I thought were important to the foundation of our D/s relationship. The core of which are trust and love (at least in a relationship where you have been together for many years and have kids, pets, and a mortgage).
