The Story of O (4) – Tears

Histoire d'O - tears

Allow me to talk about aspects of our relationship, the fascination I have for Histoire d’O and the similarities between the two. I frequently call the movie my ‘training video’. Each time I see it, I discover more aspects of my submissive self.

After O has been taken to Roissy and she has been prepared by two women, she is taken to see the dominant men. Rene is there too, to watch, but other men touch and feel and pinch and whip and fuck O. One dominant says: “The point is to draw tears from her.”

Histoire d'O - tears

This made me think of when we started out on our D/s journey. It took quite some time for me to not feel ashamed when my tears came. There were times when I did my best not to cry, because to me it was a sign of weakness; a sign that I cannot handle what Master T was dishing out. The first time Master T told me that he loves to see my tears, it made me cry even harder. I thought he had gone crazy. How could he like me showing a sign of weakness? It took me some time to understand that it wasn’t weak when I cried. How could it be weakness if it made me feel so much stronger afterwards? How could it be weakness if it felt like my soul had been washed clean after I had cried?

When I realized that my tears were not a sign of weakness, this didn’t mean that I cried every time we had a session. It just meant that I didn’t try to stop the tears anymore, that I allowed them to flow if they came. I learned to recognize the pride and approval in Master T’s voice when he caught a tear running down my cheek and said: “This is what I like to see – your tears.”

Watching Histoire d’O again and seeing the words “The point is to draw tears from her” immediately made me smile and took me back to several scenes I had with Master T, where I cried. Sometimes silent tears ran down my cheeks; other times I sobbed and kept on sobbing because I needed the intense release.

The last time I kept my tears hidden was when we had a playdate with The Talker, and I think I will do so again when we have playdates with others. This is not because I am ashamed of my tears, but because I have no idea how my tears will affect the other Dom. It has happened in the past that everything stopped when I started crying and that’s the last I want. If I want things to stop, I will use my safeword. I guess this means that when we meet someone new, my tears should be discussed too.

In the meantime, I know my tears are more than welcome to Master T. He knows my tears. He knows when he can continue and he knows when he has to stop. And even if he knows those tears are because I am nearing a point where I might use my safeword, he continues for just a bit more, pushing my boundaries and making me make him proud.

Yes, frequently his point is to draw tears from me.

Wicked Wednesday

This post was chosen by Molly as one of her top 3 for week 261 of Wicked Wednesday and this is what she said:

Let’s start with our fabulous host Rebel. She has been writing a short series about The Story of O and how key parts of it have resonated with her. This one is about tears and crying and really spoke to me. Like Rebel crying is definitely a thing for me and it is not about fear or pain but a release of emotion that is intensely powerful. Rebel often writes about her submission and D/s relationship in a way I can strongly identify with and this is a perfect example of that.

  1. Same for me, Michael finds my tears very hot. He knows if there are tears then he has pushed me to a place of release that feels good for me

  2. I like to make a submissive cry, and I think tears are beautiful. It’s not about how hard you hit or how much pain you give: to me, you can get tears cheaply by lecturing the submissive and making her feel bad. But you can get them by making her feel safe, and giving her a time and place where she can have emotional catharsis, and release old pains, and guilts and negative emotions.

    Which you wonderfully evoke. It was fascinating to read a submissive perspective on this!

    Regards!

  3. I can imagine that tears can be unsettling . . . but you describe it here so well that perhaps I will be better prepared should I be confronted with them now.
