A truly submissive woman is to be treasured, cherished and protected for it is only she who can give a man the gift of dominance.
A Sunday thought: I often wonder what our History of Art books would look like if painters in the last millenium had not been forced to depict religious subjects to paint naked women. From this vantage point, the situation seems almost laughable but those magnificent artists worked under the most inane restrictions. Thanks for that, Church.
The Temptation of Saint Anthony (1892). Henri-Pierre Picou (French, 1824-1895). Oil on canvas.
According to the story, St. Anthony’s temptations were visited upon him by Satan in the form of sexual seductresses. On one occasion, frustrated with St. Anthony’s resistance to the pleasures of the flesh, the Devil beat Anthony severely and left him for dead.

How To Tie A Double Rope Cuff With Ring
This easy rope bondage tutorial will allow you to attach wrists or ankles to each other as well as any piece of furniture your heart desires:
Place both arms or legs parallel to each other but not touching. Fold your rope in half, take the U-shaped end (called the ‘bight’) and wrap it twice around your partner’s wrists or ankles.
After the second wrap, cross the bight over the top of the wraps.
Continue crossing the bight around the bottom of the wraps and back up to the bight.
Leave enough of the bight to tie a square knot with the remaining rope.
The final result looks like in picture 5
Use the remaining rope and bight to tie your partner’s bound hands or feet to the bed, or leave them free to explore different positions in bondage.

Following up on this lovely photograph posted by Babygirl last month (http://kimmisniceandnaughty.tumblr.com/post/77005756629/les-sept-couleurs-rainer-maria-rilke-auguste), I found at my local library this English translation of Rainer Maria Rilke’s 1903 text…
"But there is another kiss that is even more wonderful – the kiss around which the piece called ‘The Eternal Idol’ rises like walls around a garden. One of the copies of this marble piece belong to Eugène Carrière. In the quiet twilight of his home this luminous stone lived like a spring, enlivened by an unchanging motion, always the same rise and fall of magical powers.
"A girl kneels. Her lovely body leans back gently. Her right arm stretches back, and her searching hand has found her foot.
"These three lines, from which no path leads out into the world, enclose her entire life and all its mystery. The stone beneath elevates her even as she kneels. And suddenly we recognize in the bearing of this girl, in the lethargy, reverie, or solitude into which she has fallen, the sacred gesture of a primeval goddess from a distant, terrible cult.
"The woman’s head leans forward slightly. With an expression of tenderness, nobility, and patience, she looks down is if from a height of a silent night, down at the man whose face is buried in her breasts as if in myriad blossoms. He too kneels, but more deeply, deeper in the stone. His hands lie behind him like worthless, empty things. The right hand is open, letting us look in.
"A mysterious greatness emanates from this group. As is so often the case with Rodin, one hardly dares ascribe meaning to it. There are thousands. Thoughts pass over this sculpture like shadows, and in the wake of each of them it rises new and enigmatic, lucid and nameless.
"Something of the mood of a Purgatory lives in this work. A heaven is near, but not yet attained; a hell is near, and not yet forgotten. And here too, all this radiance comes from the contact of two bodies, and from the contact of the woman with herself.
"The colossal "Gates of Hell," which Rodin worked on for twenty solitary years and which was not cast until 1917, is still another rendering of this great theme: the contact of living, moving planes. Proceeding with the explanation of the movement in the union of these planes at one and the same time, Rodin searched for bodies touching at many places, bodies whose contact was more intense, stronger, and less restrained.
"The more points of contact there were for two bodies, the more impatiently they came together like chemicals of great affinity, and the more stable and organic was the new whole they made together."
