Dirk Hooper and Eva Oh discuss how being a submissive man are perceived by society versus how it is in real life.
Some of the topics in this episode include how you have to be strong to kneel, how society tells men they shouldn’t be submissive, how all submissives are not into the same things, trust in a BDSM relationship, the media’s take on BDSM, and the idea that BDSM is a sexual orientation.
Much of this discussion comes from Mistress Eva’s question on Twitter below.
What do you wish the public knew about being a man and being a submissive? How are you misunderstood by society?
