Being ‘sent to the corner’ is not really a kink for me. In fact it kind of makes me uncomfortable and as a result I have not posted this image because in my head it hints at something that I struggle with. There feels like there is submissiveness to it that is just not me, the loss of identity coupled with the idea of being banished or ignored are not things that turn me on and yet I love this image. I like the way my body looks, the way the light falls over my back and hips. I think I look strong. I am not cowering, I am not hiding. There is a confidence about the way I am holding myself that contrasts strongly with the fact that I appear to be in the corner of the room. Tonight when we talked about this image and I tried to explain to him why I was reluctant to post it he said I was over thinking it but he was wrong. I wasn’t thinking enough, because the moment I started telling him my problems with it and he asked me what it was I liked about the image I realised that I had mistakenly seen weakness when in fact what it shows is a raw vulnerability and sharing that with him is not a weakness but a strength.
