Dark Priest


I have know it forever

This desire for sexual control.

It seems as if I was never innocent. My childhood seemed full of yearnings beyond my years. My teens were confusing. I adored women utterly. Everything about them. Mind to body to soul. I saw women as superior human beings – intellectually, emotionally and, of course, sheer heaven physically. I still do. More than my equal. Goddesses to be worshipped.

Yet somehow at the same time I needed to direct, to restrain, to control, to impose pleasure, and perhaps a little pain. Though not without consent. The consent, the giving up of sexual free will, was what made it, and makes it, so deeply erotic.

All around me, in those pre-internet days, were sexual images and physical relationships that were so depressingly vanilla – though I would have never have known that description then. D/s was not the glossy, fashionable, female-fantasy, multi million pound, mainstream media (FSOG) phenomena it is now.

Over the years, with a number of lovers, I began to learn the nature of my desire. I discovered, then ignored, the world of BDSM with its often ugly misogyny and extremes. It did not sit with my poetry or my romantic dominance. I developed my own path, my own direction, almost my own sexual handbook.

And as I grew to understand the extraordinary nature of submissive woman, so I mastered the many diverse pathways to giving her overwhelming pleasure through control. Physically or at a distance.

So I am here. Romantic Dominant. Older and wiser. A man completely at home with his sexual self.

The sole priest of his own dark D/s religion.



I am amazed  to find I wrote this only a year ago. These days I sometimes barely recognise myself.

    Love the honesty. And of course, dark priest sounds so alluring.

    Are there certain things that you recognize that set a submissive woman apart or do most women inherently have a desire to be dominated…. in your experience?

      Smiles. I can only talk of sexual domination and submission. And I feel a little uncomfortable talking on behalf of women. In my experience it is not uncommon for women to sexually fantasise fantasise about D/s relationships.

        Sadly the reality is often a million miles from their fantasies. Smiles.

        Thank you for your answer. It wasn’t a loaded question… I promise 🙂
        I’m sure it’s very common for women in this day and age of “50 shades of Grey” to fantasize about about D/s. I think there’s a big difference between a temporary fantasy and a core need.

      As for things I recognise, my instincts are usually right.
