…and now we pause for a humor break

The rituals. The punishments. The intensity. The just plain old general…seriousness of D/s can make us forget that it can be fun too. Whenever I find myself stressing too much because I couldn’t fold his damn fitted sheets properly or worrying that he’ll punish me for forgetting to end every sentence with an honorific or whatever, I turn to The Daily Flogger, a faux-news website that parodies the BDSM lifestyle in clever and often downright hysterical ways.

A recent fave post is “Publisher Releases ‘Emotional Masochism’ Magazine,” complete with a made-up photo of the cover. Submissiveness and emotional masochism have indeed been know to go hand-in-hand from time to time, and I’ve been told that the latter might be one of my traits. The jury’s still out on that, but this made me laugh—and also made me see how silly or overblown some of my fears are.

And that’s part of the beauty of The Daily Flogger—it counterbalances those deep, heavy feelings that can go along with BDSM. “A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men” seems to have been a popular adage long before Willy Wonka came along, and I’m a firm believer in the very serious power of levity.

Here are some other recent laugh-inducing posts on the site:

  1. My absolute favourite Daily Flogger post on emotional masochism is their review of the Disney movie Frozen!

    But in case there are any worried newbies out there, maybe I’d better clarify: I’m an emotional masochist, and mostly I just like getting laughed at. Instant, er, zings. Emotional neglect and betrayal are not necessary. 🙂

  2. Yingtai, that movie review is downright hysterical! “Tragically, she ends up living happily ever after”–I’m laughing even as I’m crying. 🙂 Thanks for pointing the review out.
