Very interesting comparisons. Many years ago when I met my first kinky boyfriend (while I was still a 20-something virgin steeped in the lifestyle of the fundamental church) he explained D/s to me. I immediately saw the parallel between submission to a “master” and submission to “Master/God.” I think having that knowledge somewhere in the back of my head made it easier all these years later to open myself up to kinky experiences and desires. Thanks for this post!
