What Kind of Dominant Are You?

I took an interesting quiz that tries to figure out your dominant type (the corresponding quiz for submissives is here).

I took it without thinking too much about each question, and my personal result seems to indicate I am a sadistic daddy white knight.
  1. The Bear Dominant16%
  2. The Collector Dominant8%
  3. The Daddy or Mommy Dominant68%
  4. The FemDomme Mistress0%
  5. The Gorean Slave Master28%
  6. The Ineffable Dominant28%
  7. The Lesser God Dominant20%
  8. The Sadistic Dominant84%
  9. The Tin Pot Dominant4%
  10. The White Knight Dominant52%
The definitions were as follows:
The Bear Dominant.  The Bear Dom is typically a burly gay or bisexual male Dominant who prefers diminutive and youthful gay or bisexual male submissives. Some Bear Doms are attracted to lady-boys and boyish females, as well. They are called Bear Doms mostly for their tendency to exhibit hyper-masculinity and somewhat exaggerated male characteristics such as a muscular or stocky build and abundant body hair. Bear Doms are commonly encountered in the BDSM leather and LGBT subcultures. Best match: The Painslut Submissive / The Little Submissive.

The Collector Dominant.  The Collector is focused on building a stable of submissives similar to a harem.  For the Collector, quantity always trumps quality.  In his way of thinking, the measure of a Dom’s standing is how many submissives he can accumulate, without much regard for who, or even what, those submissives may be.   It is relatively common for a Collector Dom to attempt to collar a submissive mere minutes after meeting her for the first time in an online chat room or on a BDSM social network. Best match: The Novice Submissive / The Pseudo Submissive.

The Daddy or Mommy Dominant.  Daddy & Mommy Doms find fulfillment in the relationship dynamic that exists between the Dominant and submissive, who is usually referred to asbaby, babygirl, babyboy, little one, or other pet name that reinforces the sub’s child-like status in the relationship A Daddy or Mommy Dom craves a sub with the ability to trust absolutely, a spirit of wide-eyed innocence and playfulness, an eagerness for guidance, and no-holds-barred adoration. Best match: The Little Submissive / The Pet Submissive / The Brat Submissive.

The FemDom Mistress.  The FemDom is always a dominant female who utilizes a unique combination of force and sexual role reversal.  She may prefer either male or female submissives, and is sometimes referred to as a Domme, Domina, Dominatrix, or Mistress.  A sub-category of FemDom is the FinDom,  a contraction of Financial Dominant.  There is often a significant element of misandry (hatred of men) which may be real or role-played involved in the FemDom Topping style. Best matches: The Painslut Submissive / The Cow-Pig Submissive.

The Gorean Slave Master.  A Gorean Slave Master, almost by definition, is a male Dominant who prefers slaves to submissives and subscribes to a highly stylized, authoritarian, and ritualistic way of life described in John Norman’s science fiction novels about the planet Gor.  Goreans typically believe that women are inferior to men and deserve to be enslaved.  Gorean slaves are treated as property, have no rights, and cannot own property of their own.  Best matches:  The Kajira Slave / The Domestic Submissive.

The Ineffable Dominant.  The Ineffable Dom is typically a Dominant who has been in the D/s lifestyle for several years or longer and has, mostly through trial and error, learned what does and doesn’t work best in his D/s relationships.  He has consciously explored and borrowed traits and characteristics from the other Dominant categories.  The synergy created with each new partner brings new facets to the Ineffable Dom’s unique (and sometimes indescribable) Topping style.   Best matches:  The Warrior Princess Submissive / The Acolyte Submissive.

The Lesser God Dominant.   A Dominant who expects and thrives on the worship of his or her submissives.  This adoration and worship, which can sometimes take the form of highly ritualistic activities and behaviors, has but one purpose, which is the ego gratification of the Lesser God.  It is relatively common for the households of Lesser God Doms to forsake all traditional forms of religion in order to practice their own home-grown religion, with the Dom at its head and subs as followers.  Best match: The Acolyte Submissive / The Domestic Submissive.

The Sadistic Dominant.  A Dom who enjoys or becomes sexually aroused from inflicting physical or emotional pain or discomfort upon his partners.  Whether or not his partner is a masochist (someone who enjoys pain) is usually irrelevant to the pleasure that a Sadistic Dom gets from inflicting it.  There is a wide spectrum of sadism that can range from the minimally sadistic yet skilled pain-inflictor on one end, to the abusive or pathologically dangerous extreme sadist at the other end of the scale. Best match:  The Painslut Submissive / The Cow-Pig Submissive.

The Tin Pot Dominant.  The TPD is primarily a role player.  He doesn’t consider what he does as a deception; he considers it role play.  For him, D/s isn’t a lifestyle; it’s entertainment.  He sees it as perfectly natural and appropriate behavior, mainly because he believes he is interacting with others who are doing precisely the same thing.  Since he believes that everyone is simply making it up as they go along, he feels pretty confident in doing so himself.  Best matches:  The Pseudo Submissive / The Novice Submissive / The Brat Submissive.

The White Knight Dominant.  The White Knight Dom wants to right wrongs, slay dragons, rescue subs in trouble, treat his submissive like a princess, and become King – and he wants to do it all before lunch.  He is driven by a sense of chivalry and altruism that transcends what he considers to be the sordid and tawdry business of self-gratification.  Making you happy makes him happy.  The White Knight lives to find solutions to your problems, but the downside is, not all problems are fixable.  Best matches:  The Warrior Princess Submissive / The Acolyte Submissive.

Geisha Cowgirl

I gifted my baby girl a gorgeous rigged mesh blue qipao, and she looked ravishing in it, though Linda says people will think she's a geisha. I reminded her geishas are Japanese, NOT Chinese. But I'll call her my Geisha Cowgirl anyway.

Alanis Gallery Angels & Devils Dance

Alanis held a Angels & Devils dance on January 19, hosted by Laura Audebarn (Laura Demonista) with DJ Geordie (Bee Itamae), and my Linda Lou and I attended dressed in our finest themed costumes.

My Linda was in a spectacular white angel outfit, with wide gossamer wings, while I wore a demon suit, complete with bat wings, two red devil horns, and insectile legs that made me think I was some kind of RoboDemon.

Angel Linda and RoboDemon MK
Laura created the venue herself, and I was impressed by the merging of heavenly and hellish elements in the one room, with one entire wall covered with art work.

Laura also chose two winners for best costume, one for males and one for females. Serinea Askold (Serinea Resident) won best costume for females, and amazingly enough I won best costume for males!

I was so moved by this honor that my emotions overcame me, much to the horror of many of the dancers *sheepish look*

The prize I got was a very cool picture of a demon ravaging a fallen angel, and I think it'll go very well with all the other pictures I bought from Alanis Gallery.

The Speakeasy @ Austin and Austin Revue In "Her Christmas Gift"

Thanks to my girl Linda for some images, and to the ever resourceful Melinda Nyn for help with the story line. Full cast and crew information listed below, subject to updates.

I confess that I didn't know what to expect when I dropped in for a while to see the play at Cafe LaPe'rouse @ Austin on the night of December 26. I knew that the regulars at the sim had been practicing diligently and regularly for it, but I had never watched such a presentation in second life before. I sat myself down on one of the comfortable green chairs and looked up, and what a wonderful sight greeted my eyes!

The thick curtains parted slowly, and there before the audience was a lushly appointed scene, with background textures complementing various on stage props, the entire production speaking volumes about the attention to detail and planning of the members of the crew.

The original play was written by Austin regular Crux Maximus, and it explored a couple's desire to please each other by sharing a very special gift. It is composed of three acts, each of which has up to six different scenes and their accompanying music, so the degree of complexity in terms of its production was not trivial.

The story opens with Charlie (Crux) and his wife Rose (Orchid Zsun) on their Hawaiian vacation a few days before Christmas, discussing whether or not to explore the D/s lifestyle. Rose is somewhat reluctant about it, but Charlie convinces her to dance in the nude publicly for him, and she suddenly feels something deep within her that responds strongly to the act of acceding to his demands.

Then on the flight back home, Charlie brings her to the lavatory, where he pins her against the wall and makes her orgasm for him, grinding against her and nipping her neck, while the passengers outside go on blithely on their little chores and errands.

Lavatory Action on Flight 007
Sometime later the two relax in a friend's home. As Rose and her friend Birdie (Sweetness Whitestone/Sozome/Sagewisdom) wrap packages, Charlie talks to Birdie's husband Paul (Billy Avedon/WillTitus) about their newly-discovered love for D/s. Paul approves, and invites them to go to a place called Club 763, which will be holding a "Seasonal Debauchery Event". Charlie agrees, and the date is set.

At Paul and Birdie's Mountain Home
At Paul and Birdie's Mountain Home
The scene then cuts to a number with mannequin dancers, who come alive and are chased and spanked by a Santa (Worldwide Pedalo) and Elf (Billy Avedon/Arie Sewell), all done to the beat of Madonna's Hanky Panky, before switching to a male strip club. There Rose confides to Birdie that she had dreamed about the mannequins coming alive and happily being spanked, and Birdie tells her this must mean she has hidden desires about BDSM.

Male Strip Club
When the curtains next open, the audience is shown the dark catacomb-like interior of Club 763, where women have been laid out and bound and are being whipped and spanked by their partners.

Club 763
Charlie leads his wife to each of the various stations, where she sees and hears the agony and sexual pleasures that consume the women in thrall to their  captors. Even her friend Birdie is part of the wanton proceedings, and Rose is visibly affected by it all.

Later that night, in their bedroom, Rose mulls over what she had seen and felt, and finally realizes her destiny.

i give myself i trust you .. i give the world to you standing at the end of the bed as i start to slide out of my dressing gown feeling it caress my body as it flows to the ground in a whisper exposing me as much as i feel exposed inside...slipping to the floor on my knees as i do give the world of me to you remembering tonight .... how it felt ... to kneel at your feet as i kneel again now on our bedroom floor feeling the soft rug on my naked knees and how good it feels to be like this as a warmth comes up through my body

And so saying she becomes his, and as the New Year comes upon them, the couple, with Rose now newly-collared, is introduced to the club by Paul. Rose is giddy with happiness at finally embracing this new life.

It is at this point that the play ends, and the entire company then gives a rousing finale of Auld Lang Syne at the airport.

The final bow
Needless to say, I have nothing but praise for the production, which is the first for the newly-formed Austin Revue. The set designs were superb, the story engaging and very much in line with the spirit of the Cafe O sim, and the actors did their parts well and with passion.

The play run twice, on December 26, 2014, and then once again on January 10, 2015, and both times the crowd was large and boisterous in between acts and scenes, their thunderous applause echoing in the elegantly appointed Speakeasy room at Cafe O.

Meli, Linda, and myself enjoying the show
I can only imagine with great anticipation the future endeavors of this company, and I look forward to once again sitting myself in the plush seats and gladly entering the world that they so skillfully create.

Demons and Angels Dance at TOB

The Olive Branch held a very successful Demons and Angels dance on January 14, 2015, with more than 40 people total joining during the 2 hour long festivities and an average of around 30 present at any one time.

The Dance was hosted by Melinda Nyn and Lia (Naharlia, who also came up with the concept for the show). DJ Abby (Nightgirl Destiny) provided the music, and all the songs she played dealt with angel and demons, or heaven and hell, which added very nicely to the overall atmosphere!

The venue was a stunning work of art designed and built by Mili Adored, with Melinda providing some stylistic cues. Beautiful statues of angels and demons created especially for the show by my girl Linda (lb burnstein) were placed strategically around the cube-like environment.

The venue was divided into two floors, with a transparent floor between them. A misty fog provided a particularly supernatural ambiance to  the environment, although I filtered it out from my pictures in order to get clear shots of the event.

The "Heavenly" upper floor had blue skies with clouds surrounding it, and this is where people first congregated during the start of the dance.

The lower floor that depicted "Hell" was even more stunning. A maelstrom of dark red flames  swirled below the dancers, who were surrounded by walls of desolate but majestic vistas where angelic and demonic statuary cavorted and flew. In the center of this infernal landscape, a statue of a demon carrying a fallen angel rose from the flames to dwarf the dancers.

Looking up from the floor below, one could see the dancers above, although given the crowd that day, I doubt many envied them their place in Heaven.

Looking up to Heaven

I must admit I had seen the beginnings of this venue during the Night of the Asshats, but the final version still stunned me. From afar, the entire set looked like a colorful Borg cube (yes, I was a Trekkie when growing up *shamed embarrassed look*).

Colorful Borg Cube
Compliments about the venue were many and loud, and Melinda promised to pass them all along to Mili and Linda, both of whom could not attend the event.

The event also featured a contest, whereby people could vote for the best female and male in costume. About 20 women signed up for the best female costume, and around 10 men signed up for the best male costume, and when the winners were announced near the end of the dance, MarthaJT won best female costume, and Lucian Overland won the best male costume.

Board for best female costume
This was the second major event held by TOB that I have attended, and like the 1960s Beatles Dance held earlier, the time and effort spent on its preparation was plainly evident and a major contributor to its success.

Thanks again to Melinda, Mili, Lia, Linda and all others who worked so hard to give us such a good time!

Night of the Asshats

The Asshats Gang: Lia, Meli, Mk, and Linda
Warning: graphic depiction of butt paraphernalia and other things related or semi-related to people's derriere. The author will not be held responsible for any vomiting, fainting, or partial blindness caused by reading this article.

For some reason, Linda is particularly fascinated with the word 'asshat' (and no, it's not because she thinks I'm one!), and yesterday she got me a gift and asked that I wear the hat she had given me. Being an honest and innocent soul, I had visions of it being some classy Fedora, or maybe even a macho cowboy hat.

I put it on with neither thought nor worry, and suddenly found her bursting out laughing!

I looked up and did a Home Alone moment...yes, THAT Home Alone moment!

There was an ass on my head...with toilet paper sticking out of it, and some really nasty hairs growing out of the butt cheeks!

Disclaimer: In both RL and SL, I have a rather juicy, tight butt that sometimes causes women to faint in delight...NO hairs either cause that's just...ewww... Ok, back to the story.

The next day we were chilling and dancing with the people who are responsible for putting together the Angels and Demons event at TOB next week. I was having some fun as the girls started giving me various dance animations to test, although Lia (Naharlia) kept trying (but failing!) to animate me with something called Bellydance.

I mean, come on...I may be fun-loving and nice, but I DO have my dignity ;-)

It was at that moment (after they had started dancing with cows - ahem, don't ask) , that Linda and I put them on again, and after awhile she gave ones to Melinda and Lia as well.

Making noises: Meli, MK, Lia, and Linda Lou
Then we partied the night away, with Mili Adored and Hunter Teodosio being the only ones who retained any semblance of dignity, as they watched us shimmy and wiggle and waggle on the dance floor.

And that was how the Night of the Asshats ended - not with a bang, but with a lot of farting sounds (yes, the darn things make farting noises when touched - sighs).

The Cherry Cheongsam

A cheongsam is a body-hugging one-piece Chinese dress for women, also known in Mandarin Chinese as qipao. The stylish and often tight-fitting that is best known today was created in the 1920s in Shanghai and made fashionable by socialites and upper class women.

My baby girl rocked the cherry cheongsam I gifted her. I literally could not keep my eyes off her. It is full mesh and with intricate and subtle designs on it.

Rodney McGimsie's Ring Ceremony at Cafe LaPe'rouse @ Austin

A report by blogger Melinda Nyn on Rodney McGimsie's Ring Ceremony held at Cafe LaPe'rouse @ Austin on December 27, 2014. I should like to add that I have always held Rodney in high regard. He was one of the first to greet me in Austin, and friend me as well. I send him my warmest congratulations and wish him all the best in his endeavors in SL and RL!

A flurry of gorgeous gowns and  handsome Masters in tuxes gathered at the  imposing Ceremonial Arch at the heart of Austin on December 27, 2014 to celebrate the graduation of Master Rodney McGimsie. After months of deep study, both theoretical and practical, he was to receive his O ring and become a full Master.

Master Ratzu called the twittering masses to order and began by acknowledging all levels of members of the community - from the humble Amiees who organize events to the Girls in Study, Tyro Masters working towards their own graduations and the fully-fledged  O Girls and Masters. Then he  continued by inviting Rodney and his mentors, Sir  Jonathan and Sir Crux, to the stage.

It was interesting to discover that Sir Rodney had changed mentors at some stage  - Sir  Jonathan announced, in the opening of his speech, that he had only been so for a short while. He went on to congratulate Rodney on his achievement. Sir Crux, on the other hand was very forthright:

"When you arrived here I could sense we had a very a strong Master in the making.... You tested us, challenged us, and yes, pissed us off at times. You and I, let's say, tested our boundaries on manly talk... to put it mildly. But through it all you listened and persevered, keeping your eye on the prize and trudging on. ...."

It seems that Rafe also mentored Sir Rodney towards the end of his training and, although not present, he sent a message via O Girl Sassy Snoodle.  Others who spoke in praise of Sir  Rodney were  Maitre WW,  Aisleyransom, Sir Will, Orchid  and Sweetness.

Sir Rodney was invited to respond and he gave thanks to all who had spoken and to those who had helped, advised and guided him throughout his journey. It was very pleasing, and I felt very proud, to hear him include Sir MK in his words:

'To my friends Alvise, Arie, Hadaway, Hunter, Marq, Michael, MK, Nik, RB, Ronald, Silverfox, and Wild >>> Thank you for being contributors to my growth, and to the Austin community. I have enjoyed our chats, and I look forward to more.'

 Then it was time for Master Ratzu to  say the vows that Sir Rodney repeated after him to swear his allegiance to Austin and its code of ethics and conduct. The ring was placed on his finger and his tag now read "Master @ Austin' - and everyone burst forth with their applause and delight.

Then those who were able to stay had a great time dancing in the Cabaret room.
