I was reading the submissive’s creed today, and was thinking what really is a creed, and do we need one. So I looked up “creed” and basically it’s a code or system of belief. Every D/s relationship is different, but they still stem from the same belief system that a submissive willingly gives control to their Dominant. There are different variations of the submissive’s creed but I like this one the best. Mainly because it states the essence of submission in a general sense, and it reminds me of the core values that are part of being who I am as a submissive. I like to read it from time to time before I do my reflections, it just puts my head in that place where I’m reminded of the very basics of my submission to Him. I think we all need reminding from time to time of the basics of anything. Do we need a creed, when we should just know the basics of submission? I think it helps to have one to give focus especially those new to submission, or those showing an interest, and I like the idea of having a code or system of belief as a sub 🙂
The Submissive’s Creed
I will communicate with complete honesty my needs, desires, limits, and experience. I realize that failing to do so will not only prevent my Master and I from having the best experience possible, but can also lead to physical and emotional harm
I will not try to manipulate my Master.
I will not push to make a scene go the way I feel it should.
I will keep an open mind about trying things that I am not accustomed to or comfortable with and expanding my limits. I will continue to grow as a submissive and as a human being.
I will accept the responsibility of discovering what pleases my Master, and will do my best to fulfill His wishes and desires.
I will not allow myself to be harmed or abused, I know that submissive does not equal doormat.
I will be courteous and helpful to my fellow submissive’s, I will share my knowledge and experiences with others in the hope that they will learn from where I have been I will take the time to help those new to the lifestyle start out on the correct path.
I will be responsive to my Master, I will not try to hide what my mind and body are feeling so that I may assist Him in His responsibilities as my Authority, I know that Dominants are not telepathists, and will not expect my Master to know thought or feelings which I do not share.
I will never think myself a submissive because I choose to submit on a different level than another. I will not be boastful of experiences I have had as a sub. I know that my actions reflect upon my Master, and will do my best to help others see him in a positive way, I will not intentionally embarrass or displease my Master.
Above all, I will wear my title of submissive with honor, I will never cause others to think that being submissive means to be weak or sub~human. I will take pride in who and what I am, and will never show myself in a negative way.
I love You Master xoxo ((me))
