Saturday evening in my Alpha Submissive Class for The Academy in Georgetown, SC, I brought up the Hierarchy of Needs as an illustrative point on the foundation of trust within a power exchange relationship.
I’ve received several follow-up messages about the idea from that class, which I began responding to this morning.
Looking at my writing calendar, I also found a link to this piece:
Needs vs Wants Hierarchy in a M/s relationship
That I’d added in to remind me to delve a bit deeper into the idea of what is a need and what is a want in a relationship.
What are needs?
To clarify, these are needs within a relationship, beyond the basic need to breathe, eat, have clean water, etc.
