Dear Redhead,


The first place to start is to ask him what he means by that.


You need to know what he has in mind.


Dominating him sexually could be anything from being the assertive one, to S&M and so called DOM type stuff, which can be dangerous.


So start by asking him what he is wanting exactly. What does he have in mind.


You can also ask him to describe a sexual fantacy to you and then act it out.


But above all else, you must feel comfortable doing these things. If it does not make you feel good, you may have to make some compromises.

Dear Red head,


I understand where you are coming from.


Q1: I am not able to help you with feelings of guilt. That is something for you and he to talk about. You may want to see a relationship counselor in person for a few sessions to discuss this issue. IT sometimes helps to talk to a third party in depth about what exactly makes you feel guilty and the ok ness of what you are doing. As long as it is not cause injury, you would not have a need to feel guilty. Guilt comes from thinking you are doing something immoral, illegal, or wrong (sinful). Those issues are founded in how you were raised and your religion. In order to overcome guilt you have to be able to see that what you are doing is not wrong, immoral, or illegal, especially when done in the confines of a loving relationship and marriage; where you are not causing harm. The more you talk about this with him, and or a third party, the more it becomes normalized for you. I am sure you have no problem indulging him from the idea of it, but getting past guilt can be more difficult.


Q2: Playing like this will not necessarily have a negative effect on the relationship, provided it is ok for you as much as for him. This is not a 50/50 idea, but from the idea that it is ok with you to extend yourself in this way. If you are not ok with it, then there could be problems. He needs to respect your position and feelings as much as he wants you to respect his. So if this is not something you can do without guilt, there is a potential of damage to the relationship.


Q3. I agree that this should not be the only way you have sex. I recommend a schedule. For example: Tuesday nights is play night. Or Tuesday and Thursday. This gives him and you something to look forward to. By scheduling this kind of sexual play, a schedule can help to build excitement as the time and day approach. He and you may find that it also creates a since of preparing. When people have scheduled events, even schedule sex, they find themselves in their anticipation, developing a ritual of preparation that contributes to the sexual play in a favorable way.

Dear redhead,


Thank you for your feed back and comments.


It is not a matter of money. You do not have to pay anything extra, but bonuses are always appreciated. You are entitled to follow up questions until you are satisfied.


Your follow on question: Whether you feel selfish or feel like your are taking advantage of him, is different perspective of guilt. Only with this phrasing, it is more like not having a sense of entitlement. BUt it comes to the same thing, feeling somewhat inadequate or selfish taking advantage of someone. A person feels selfish or like they are taking advantage of someone, out of how they were raised and their religious and philosophical up brining with regard to sharing, taking care of themselves, and others. So it amounts to the same process as overcoming guilt.


You need to realize that in caring for your partner that you are entitled to satisfy him in the way he has asked you. If someone has asked for something, then it is not selfish of you because you are really not taking advantage of someone to give them what they want.
