I’ve read a couple of terrific blog posts about rules within a D/s relationship lately. As Sir & I are currently working on my rules these posts always catch my eye, and I read with great interest what other couples come up with. No point re-inventing the wheel if someone else has had great ideas that will work well for our relationship too.
Of course I know our rules will be specific to us, not just a copy of what somebody else came up with. Which is why when I saw mention of ‘the 128 Basic Rules’ on THIS post over at The Kinky World of Vile I was intrigued! There are basic rules? Who knew? After I’d got over the thought of 128 rules, I mean 128!!?? I had to go find them of course.
I found several sites that referenced them, and there seemed to be a few small differences between them all, so I am going to link the one that was easiest on the eye:
I appreciate these seem to be written for a M/s relationship, rather than a D/s relationship. I also want to be clear I absolutely respect that the rules a couple come up with that work for them are nobody else’s business. I am certainly in no place to question, judge or ridicule, even if I were so inclined.
But….. come on, you knew there had to be a but…
These 128 rules had me alternatively open mouthed in shock, spluttering with indignation and laughing my ass off. Not to mention in total awe at the thought of someone not only being able to remember all these rules, but live by them too. There were also a lot of rules that we already have, and others I thought were great, so it wasn’t all negative.
I’m not going to pick out particular ones that elicited the varying reactions, though I bet my Dom will be able to guess at which ones they were.
So I merely share them here for your edification, or amusement.
