I am sharing something each day (not always every day in a row) covering the alphabet until I reach Z! Here we are at day 20! I am sharing topics having to do with sex, BDSM and/or kink. These topics are of things I am curious to learn about, love to know more about or just love to share.
If you have anything to add or have something else in that alphabet letter to share, please do so in the comments below.
Today’s sexy letter of the alphabet is:
T: Total Power Exchange (TPE) :
-In BDSM, TPE refers to a type of relationship: total power exchange. The implication is that the dominant partner has complete control and authority over the submissive in all areas and at all times, even when they’re not actively engaged in a scene. Most couples will, however, agree to a set of terms and limits beforehand, which can be renegotiated if it becomes necessary. (Urban Dictionary)
-Total power exchange (TPE) is a relationship dynamic that occurs in a BDSM relationship where the dominant partner has total power over the submissive in everything. TPE always applies in sexual situations, but generally also refers to the dominant having power over all other elements of the submissive’s life. (Kinkly)
General Power Exchange as described on Kinkly =
-Power exchange is a term that is frequently used to describe dominance and submission relationships and the BDSM community. These types of relationships involve submissive partners whom willingly and voluntarily relinquish control to their dominant partners, either in certain situation, for a specified period of time, or completely. Once in power exchange relationships, submissive partners must surrender to and obey their dominant partners. Common elements in power exchange relationships include bondage and discipline.
This is an interesting subject to me. I originally thought it was just a “Power Exchange” in the lifestyle. In this, the submissive gives control to the Dominant in a scene or even in their daily life.
I then found that there is a Total Power Exchange as well. Where the submissive gives the Dominant complete and total control over their play time and scenes or in their life, decisions, everything. At first this was something that intrigued me. Wouldn’t it be nice to just give over everything to someone to take all the responsibility?!
Then thinking about it more, I realize I am not willing to give over every single thing in my life.
I was raised to take care of myself and my life. So, even though the thought of relinquishing all to someone was a nice thought, I can’t see this working for me.
To have a partner you can share responsibility with and discuss things with is so great! And it is nice to have someone that wants to make sure I continue to be responsible for things. He doesn’t just take all out of my hands (even though sometimes I think he would like to).
I must say, for a scene, it is absolutely amazing!! 😉
Next post for the Sexy AtoZ we will share the letter U!
