While talking to Katie in bed my thoughts happened to drift back to the days of Boy Scouts and the Scout Law as I wondered what MsNaydi thought the ideal sub was. I substituted ' a submissive is' for 'a scout is' and thought - that all of those qualities could also be those a submissive man. I listed them below. The character traits focus on many character traits a man should have with respect to loving his wife - whether in a D/s F/m relationship or not. What wife wouldn't want a man to be this way? Read MsNaydi's post and see the similarities. Read what Ms Kathy wrote the last few times and see if you don't see that this is what she too desires. Speak to any woman and see if they don't want a man that exhibits these qualities - as well as those masculine traits that define masculine (strong, protective, sexually driven, etc).

I'd love to have dominant women write the qualities of an ideal Domme/Mistress. I wonder if beating, punishing, humiliating and demeaning would be primary character traits they feel would breed a loving, healthy, long-lasting relationship. I doubt it, but I am just one man's perspective and I would love to hear you express yours. Am I off-the-wall or can you identify? I would love to hear your thoughts.
