I came across this question today and thought it could use some addressing.
“How is it possible to live a 24/7 lifestyle? You can’t submit 24 hours a day, it just isn’t possible.”
So many people get tunnel visioned when learning about D/s. There is so much information and not one right answer but many. I’ve not met a single person who can dominate or submit 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Life happens and people change.
The bigger question is what does living D/s 24/7 mean to you? That is what truly matters.
Pet and I don’t live together, so much of our relationship is via phone and other means. Do I want him to? Hell yes, but we take what we can for now. We have set protocols and rules. When those rules get broken we address it and remedy it. The kink aspect of our relationship is really a very small part. What matters to us is how we interact and communicate with each other. That is how we live 24/7. I don’t want him on his knees all day, every day . I just want him to think of how I would respond to something if I’m not there. For the most part he does. He has the occasional “oops I forgot” moments, but he does circle back to us and addresses it with me.
This is how we live our dynamic. It works for us and when life gets a little chaotic we adjust. Our happiness is 24/7.
