Keeping passion and desire alive over the long term - Dating, Novelty, and Sex

Episode 36 - Keeping passion and desire alive over the long term - Dating, Novelty, and Sex

Dom/sub relationships are often thought of in terms of control, obedience, and structure.

But in a long term, loving relationship, things like romance, and continuing to date each other, are spoken about as valuable.

So how do WE bring these two things together?

This is what we discuss in this episode of Dom Sub Devotion. Recorded on a Friday, already dressed to head out on a date night together, we captured this episode to share how Dominance and submission for us work together perfectly with a loving relationship.

Just some of the topics we discuss in this episode:

  • How romance fits together with power exchange
  • Why dating each other is still important in D/s dynamics
  • How D/s has brought novelty and excitement into our marriage
  • Power exchange as the antidote to the slowly dying passion in marriage
  • And lots more!
