I mean, it’s kind of the point that the sub doesn’t have all the power. They don’t want it. They specifically want to give that up!
Who thinks up this drivel, and speeches it out like gospel so that new kinkies take it to heart and pass it on?
I’m in danger of spraining my optic nerve every time I read that drivel from some internet gobshite, due to my extreme eye roll.
