I Do Love the Bondage and Light Discipline .
I enjoy Domination and submission part of it too ...but
I am not so keen on Discipline if it is Hard Sadism as
I am not into Masochism or Humiliation.
a switch is someone who participates in BDSM activities
sometimes as a top and other times as a bottom or (in the case of dominance and submission) sometimes as a dominant and other times as a submissive.
Partners may switch roles based on mood, desire, or to allow each partner to experience their preferred activity.
For example, a switch may be in a relationship with someone of the same primary BDSM orientation (e.g., two dominants), but enjoys participating as either orientation, so switching provides each partner with an opportunity to realize his or her BDSM needs.
Why do people switch?
That is easy to answer.
Some people need to submit,
some need to Dom.....
others need both!
