Day 12: Do you include financial submission within the definition of your own submission and if yes, how does it manifest itself? If no, is there a particular reason why? Are you familiar with the concepts of financial submission? Do you have an opinion about financial submission in general?
i’m familiar with the concept of financial submission, yes. It’s not part of my submission. Daddy works hard and provides for us. He is very generous and takes good care of us. i have free access to the household finances and am the one who typically handles the way funds are spent with Daddy’s oversight. We don’t practice financial submission to a large degree because i am the more financially prudent of the two of us. Daddy respects my talents in this area and has given me this task.
i would not agree to financial submission to anyone based on my life experiences. As a victim of domestic violence, i know full well the dangers involved in not having my own funds. i do not lump all men or all D-types into a category of being abusive. Just not something i would opt to do.
An overall opinion? Not really. Each of us has different things we like, need and are good at. i can see true benefits of financial submission for a sub who needs help with budgeting skills, saving, or would rather have the Dom handle things. As with anything in a relationship D/s or othewise, it’s important this was decided on as a mutual agreement.
