Some of you might have noticed that after sharing 15 posts I the Master Douglas series, I have stopped. There won’t be any other posts about him and his life, even though there are many stories I can still share.
However, I have chosen to stop with it.
I am intrigued by his life and he continues to tell me a lot about it. No, I definitely don’t agree with everything and I sometimes cringe when I see his ‘cruelty’ towards the women in his life. I always talk to him about it, remark on it, ask him questions and he always honestly answers them. Through those emails we exchanged after he had told me about a scene, I understood better. It gave his story a different feel. I spoke to Master T about this, about the fact that I had decided to stop with it and he said something that I have not thought of before: by simply translating Master Douglas’s stories, there was no nuance to it. By emailing with him after I have received the stories it showed me that he really cared about his slaves, but that caring part of him never came across in his stories.
I thought that my post on 12 September would make it clear that he is not a monster, that his slaves have safewords to use, that he would never administer more pain than he knows they can handle. Master Douglas would never harm anyone. He likes to play hard, but only if the slaves likes that too AND she can handle it. I don’t think… no I know that didn’t come across in any of the stories I have shared. It didn’t come across as I have simply been translating his words. And, to be frank, he is a man and he is no writer (sorry Douglas), which means he gave a business-like account of what happened in the sessions and there were little to no emotion from his side in his writings.
Like Bibulous One mentioned in one of his recent posts:
Sometimes working out how to write about a session is all about finding a way into the emotion of it, getting to grips with the intensity of the interchange between dominant and submissive.
It’s sometimes difficult enough for a writer to put the emotion into it, so I can understand that for a non-writer it might be even more difficult. Also, maybe some of the nuance of Douglas’s stories got lost in translation.
Master Douglas didn’t mind me stopping sharing his stories. In fact, before I told him I wanted to stop, I received mail from him where he said that he felt like someone from a different planet when he read the comments on the stories I have shared. I know there were some people who enjoyed the stories, but I have the feeling that the majority of people didn’t. Therefore, it’s better to stop.
Since the Master Douglas series was shared on Masturbation Monday, I am sharing this post for the meme again. As a sort of closure…
