Rights Of A Submissive

Author: Jill Kneer © 1995

*this list is the view of the author


I have the right...

...to set limits, and expect them to be respected.
...to adjust these limits at any time, with notice to you.
...to expect you to push them, to force me to create new limits & boundaries.
...to expect you to be concerned about time we spend apart, but I expect you to understand that I
am a person, separate from you, and thusly having problems and situations in my life that I will
not need your help with.
...I have the right to expect you will respect me for my independence and not criticize me for it.
...to ask you for help, should I need it.
...to be trusted, providing I have earned it.
...to expect you to believe I am an intelligent, caring and loyal person.
...to ask things of you, and have you listen to my requests.
...to ask for your attention, without having to misbehave to get it. ... to ask you to contribute as
much to this relationship as I do. As long as my requests are submitted respectfully, I expect you
to consider them as you would from any friend or colleague.
...to question your motives, should you deny my requests, as long as I do so with the proper
...to expect you to administer your punishment with care and caution.
...to use my safewords at any point, should I feel them necessary.
...to get up and walk away from a scene if you have crossed the line.
...to expect you to respect my decisions, and not think less of me, or abandon me for them.
...speak up if I feel our relationship is not giving me what I need.
...to tell you what I need, in a respectful manner.
...to expect you to understand my reasons for doing so, and to expect you to listen with an open
...to walk away from the relationship if we cannot come to a common ground on these issues.
...to expect tenderness, love and understanding after a scene is completed, should it be what I
...to ask you for that tenderness if I've had a bad day, or if I just feel the need for closeness. I
understand that there will be times when you and I will disagree about this, when you will want
a scene, and I will not. I have the right to call for a talk about this, and to expect you to listen to
and consider my reasonings. I expect you to have the final word, but I expect you to
wholeheartedly consider my feelings, whatever happen to be.
...to expect our relationship to progress, for trust to continually be renewed, for our souls to be
as close as our bodies are.
...to tell you if I need more from you, and I expect you to respect my decisions about what I want
and need. I expect you to want the relationship to progress, unless decided otherwise before
hand. I expect you to understand that deep trust often breeds love, and I expect you not to repell
me if I tell you that I love you. For, my Master, I will love you, should our relationship move
ahead, should our trust continue to grow.
...to expect you to tell me, at any point, if you do not feel you can return those feelings, so that I
may decide what I want and need. For it is your pleasure that adds to my own, makes it real. And
mine, that adds to yours.
