It’s pretty common to hear people in the femdom crowd talk about paradigms. Some see themselves as a queen and a knight, an Amazon and her captive, a princess and her servant, etc. Why the reliance on fictional imagery? (Yes, royalty and knights did and do exist, but the reality is nothing like the storybook version they draw on.)
This all comes across as an elaborate role-play. Why not just be yourself? If you want to add in some role-playing now and then, go for it. But to seriously identify with a fictional persona on a 24/7 basis strikes me as delusional.
It makes me wonder why this is so widespread in femdom yet nearly nonexistent in the maledom community. Why do the majority of those in male-dominant relationships not feel the need to relate to people who have nothing to do with their lives?
