Naturally, all my experiences in the scene have involved paying pro-dommes - it's not as if anyone's going to spend much time in my sweaty presence unless they're well compensated for it! But within this very limited sphere I have, I think, acquired some expertise - I might almost go so far as to say wisdom. And I am very happy now to share some of these insights with you, my loyal readership.
So, without further wittering: some advice to a novice sub. In the form of captions. Obviously.
The ladies featuring so beautifully, and misleadingly, in this post were (from the top):
Divine Mistress Heather
A lovely lady from Schoolmistress Fantasy
Lady Sophia Black
Mistress Eleise de Lacey
Mistress Darla (now retired I understand, but here from The English Mansion)
Miss Jessica Wood (who - you can be quite sure - most definitely wood not!).
