What tumblr/DDlg thinks it’s like:
What it’s actually like:
Nowhere do I see a bigger misunderstanding of what a Master is than in the DD/lg community. They have a worse view of Masters than ignorant vanilla people do.
No, Masters are not all cold, unemotional, unloving, arrogant or abusive. They are people. They can be all the things Daddy Doms can be. Both types of Dominants are nurturing, provide aftercare, love and care about their submissive and want to guide them in life and help them improve themselves.
But where Daddy Doms put their main focus on these things and delve deep into the role of a father figure, Masters want to go further and have all control over their sub.
Read a blog by a slave in a long-term 24/7 relationship before jumping to these horrible conclusions. They speak of happiness, care, playful moments as well as mundane days, and above all, love between them and their Master.
