Bound (S)

My Favorite Word...a quick stream-of consciousness evaluation of the word BOUND...

meaning a confinement.
meaning a predicament.
BOUND meaning a promise.

I just realized what a powerful word BOUND can be. So diverse is its meaning. It isn't just about a tangible situation, but also what each of those situations represent.

Dymion often finds himself bound in chains. Bound in cuffs. Bound in ropes. Bound any other creative way I can find to limit his movement and remove his control. Yes, that is really hot, but he and I also share this magical verb in other ways:

We are...

BOUND by love.
BOUND by commitment.
BOUND our life together.

To be BOUND is such a huge part of a 24/7 D/s lifestyle. BDSM is so deliciously symbolic of the ties that bind any relationship. Yep, one cannot deny the multi-dimensions of our kind of kink.

So, in summary, I dig the word BOUND and all it represents. Three cheers for Selena's new favorite word! Here is wishing we all find ourselves BOUND in the most delightful and meaningful ways.


  1. A BOUND can also be a leap - the kind of leap you experience in your entire being when your Goddess so much as looks at you.

    Well done - you are a lucky man.

  2. Anonymous,

    Sorry for the late reply... missed two comments from the last month, and this is one of them.

    Good catch! And indeed, a leaping bound is what my heart and my soul feel when I feel my Goddess' dominant vibe washing over me.

    And indeed I am a lucky man. And flattered that I can elicit the feelings in my Goddess that she wrote about in this post.

    Thanks for dropping by.
