Cleansing Luke

Luke needed another attitude adjustment. And I was just the person to give it.

Thorough discipline. Physically, mentally, emotionally.

Total Dominance. Mind, body, and soul.

Then, he needed to be tied…


…in a configuration befitting the sacrifice of body and mind for his greater good.


His legs were bound next.

Then, a final “lesson”, which I’m sure will stick with him for a very long time: cleansing through dehumanization.

When we emerged from My Temenos, it was clear a shift had indeed taken place.

During this visit, he offered this lovely card and gift:


Then, later sent these very thoughtful and kind words:

Forgive me, but I am having trouble putting into words how incredible our session was. … I will take this moment to thank You for Your aftercare patience, as You clearly sensed I was a bit off-kilter – and stunned by even being off-kilter. I still am…but please bear with me, as I feel compelled to capture and express this “moment”, as it were.

Our first session was mind-blowing. And frankly, I came into today thinking about proving how much more I could take (to whom, I don’t know…). Anyway, You changed all of that very quickly. First, I was not at all prepared for the weaknesses You extracted from me. As I started to reflect… the dynamics of the session took a very sharp turn, and I was completely disarmed. I fell into subspace quite early, which is a slight surprise, but I guess we both already know You can that to me.

However, what happened in the last 30 minutes of our session was completely unprecedented. I’d [highlighted] an abstract picture of “ego death”…a while ago. It seemed like a great ‘stretch goal’, as the corporate types are wont to say. I never contemplated that You could bring this upon me in one session, let alone our very next session.

It makes me reflect upon what is so very unique about You. You are intimidatingly cerebral, as I mentioned…yet…unexpectedly intuitive – a terribly potent combination. Moreover, to use a word I offered in session, You are truly authentic.

Today, You took me to unfamiliar places. You dangled me there, right on the edge of submission and panic, over and over again. Yet you never caused me to want or need to safeword. Somehow, through 90 minutes, You taught me both submission and trust, as every time I felt I couldn’t take any more, it was Your hand that picked me back up.

And then, the final 30 minutes.

The cynical, obsessively analytical part of me desperately wants to understand what happened. What I can recall was that you tied me like an object, and I’ve never before felt so helpless. I was also stunned at your strength…. But the main thing I recall – and it is reminiscent of our first mind-blowing session – is Your relentlessness. Every time I thought it was over – that I had survived, or that You were satisfied – You came back for more. Every time I tried to piece things together, You came and shattered the puzzle anew. I was completely at Your mercy, physically and emotionally, and then…everything…just…slowed down…

…such that by the time [the session was ending], I feel like I was finally sipping from that Holy Grail we subs call being “broken”. Yet…I didn’t feel at all damaged. I felt – oddly – in a state of nearly perfect peace. I lay there, nearly devoid of thought, taking in Your words and Your dominance, accepting them with no resistance. Even as You thoughtfully brought me back from subspace, I was having trouble distinguishing Your words from my own thoughts. It was truly disorienting, in a way that I have never before experienced.

Again, I thank You for everything – for Your thoughtfulness and professionalism and the trust these engender, for Your intellect, intuition, and intensity, and for allowing me to again be a canvas for your indelible signature.

Thank you, Luke!! You are a joy.

Testimonial from C & M

Mistress Tissa,

We want to thank you for an incredible evening.  We have spent much of today thinking about how best to put our reactions into words.  The scene was crafted beautifully; the level of thought and care you put into it was manifest.  Though we shared the experience, we thought we would each write our separate thoughts about it.

M:  One of the most striking aspects of last evening was your ability to set a mood and tone so early in the session.  Sitting on the couch, [watching] C disrobe at your command and (so readily!) follow your instruction was an amazing transition from the casual conversation we’d shared on your couch a few minutes before.  That particular tone only sharpened as the evening progressed; you weaved so many elements – words and visuals and tactile sensations – to evoke that deep sense of submission I’d wanted to experience so much.  What surprised me – what delighted me – was the depth of profound feeling you evoked.  Towards the end of our time, when you were reinforcing my utter powerlessness vis-à-vis C, whispering in my ear, and inflicting such intense pain, I felt a kind of release of raw emotion buried deep inside.  Thank you.

C:  Normally, I’m self-conscious about nakedness, even in front of M.  But I had none of that last night.  You authority was so clear the moment we walked down the steps that that the usual self-consciousness didn’t disappear – it never appeared in the first place.  I was immediately completely submissive, something that I struggle with with M, even though I want to be.  Later in the scene, you mentioned my desire not to submit to a man, which was an epiphany for me.  Being both a naturally submissive girl and also a strong professional woman, there is a struggle to submit without question to a man, even to one I love.  As sexy as the scene was, that’s a lasting takeaway from it that will affect and strengthen my bond with M.

We mentioned yesterday that when we found you, we knew you were the perfect fit for us.  Your intelligence and poise is something we value…

Again, thank you; last night won’t just be a collection of memories but a wonderful enhancement to our relationship.
