FACT NOT FICTION: The Dom Files is a collection written by dominant men who share their perspectives, experiences and desires…
Pleasure and Pain
I am not a sadist, in the darkest sense of the term and I do not get pleasure from simply administering pain. Pain is just one element I have available to me in the collection of physical and mental sensations I offer you. Yes, pain demonstrates my power over you and control of what you experience and it is a component of discipline, reminding you of your chosen place. Mixed with pleasure, pain is just an ingredient in a cocktail of words and sensations that merge to form a state of blissful comfort and a true sense of powerful ownership. A whip can temporarily tarnish your body, but words and suggestion mark your imagination with much greater depth.
So why do I expose you to pain? – Why not simply smother you with pleasure?
Sometimes a suggestion or perception of torment is much stronger than the action itself, but this is doubly true when you have lived and felt the experience before and the images of doubt, fear and trepidation are still wrapped in the memories of contact, discomfort and torment. Pain, torment and degrading acts – wrapped in a context of control with an overwhelming sense of trust and a depth of care so immense – are pleasures of the mind and sensations of the body not found in traditional acts of attention or love. I use your body, I torment your mind and torture your flesh because it makes you drip with lust and your animal needs are given freedom, which drive me to fulfil them with the darkest of actions.
It is certainly true that ALL contact with your flesh offers stimulating pleasure, even when the act is shrouded in torment. However, I believe it is important that I do not get lost in lustful thoughts and desires for the act of causing pain, because it is my place to maintain absolute control at all times. I must be constantly aware of your mind and body and the boundaries and limits they are currently capable of enduring, so unguarded sadistic pleasures could distract me from my responsibilities.
So, do I need to give you pain to arouse me…? No.
Do I get pleasure from your reaction to such acts and your need for this treatment…? – I think the answer is clear and I will always use you in the darkest of ways, whether touched by my hand or addressed by my words.
