Does your submission – either what you practice or what you strive for – have a label? Do you view your submission as Taken in Hand, domestic discipline, top/bottom, dominant/submissive, master/slave, owner/pet, or some other description or combination? If you do not use a label, why?I don't really like labels. They are confining. I've also said on a couple of responses on others' blogs that they kind of make me feel we are out in left field somewhere. There are lots of aspects to our relationship. Daddy is a Dominant. I am a submissive, so yes we are in a D/s relationship. He is Daddy, and I am his little girl. So we are D/lg. We incorporate discipline and correction into our dynamic, so we are DD. Daddy is the absolute authority, and makes all final decisions, controls the finances etc, so we are a '50s-style household.
We are not Taken-in-Hand, that implies a more assertive non-Dominant partner. We're not M/s, though I have moved beyond submission to Daddy. There is nothing I would refuse him. But both of us dislike the term slave because of the negative connotations to us personally, though we do not judge anyone else to whom that dynamic speaks.
In all actuality, we dislike labels, because we are a lot of things, but we are mostly just ourselves, and it fits us and it feels good.
