"How I became a Mistress" by Mistress Michelle Peters
The first factor is my hypothesis and only theory, but I'm sure it was a important part in my path towards the dominant side of B&D.
A) Physiology. We all have male and female hormones, science has proven that the behavioral traits come from these hormones. Meaning male hormones produce a aggressive behavior and female hormones produce a passive behavior. Some females produce xxy factor or xxyy factor or in different combinations other than the normal xy factor. The only time this factor becomes normal or there is a excessive amount of female hormone secretion is during menstruation. At this time females become less aggressive and more passive. It has been found that many lesbians also have this hormone imbalance as well as many bi-females. I was born a twin and do have this slight imbalance of hormones which possibly contributes to my dominant behavior.
There are also other factors we must consider, the next being;
B) Cultural up bringing. My father was a executive for one of the big three auto manufacturers. (GMC) He held a responsible job. He was a very dominant, in the sense of job responsibilities and very aggressive at his work. Where as my mother was submissive and a house wife. Because of my fathers job, he worked constant hours and I did not see him as much as my Mother. My father worked a many weekends and I probably only saw him a few times a month. My Mother hardly ever disciplined me as a child, it all came from my Father. Because I rarely saw my Father and because discipline came from him I associated more with my father than my Mother. My Father was very strict when I was young, but as I became older he was very lenient. I think this up bringing was a also a cause of my Dominant behavior.
Factors one and two are only theories, I know factor three was a definite cause in my dominant behavior.
C) Psychological; My metal state caused from environment or circumstance, How a my path began into B&D also inter links why I am a dominant. There are several reasons why and this will probably apply to every dominant in the scene as well as submissive.
My first introduction began years ago. I had a friend who often persuaded me to dress in black nylons, garter belt and black bra, to enhance my sexual desires. He would often show me magazines of girls who wore this attire, at the time bondage magazines rarely existed, if at all! I would dress in front of him and we would have sex. It seemed like a progression and soon I found myself dabbling in exotic make up and hair styles. From there we progressed into oriental style rope bondage. We played with rope for a few years and progressed into gags, nipple torture, spanking, whipping, suspension, dildos and various forms of humiliation and other forms of B&D. Magazines had also come a long way from rag sheets to glossy covers and full color pages. It was through those magazines that the both of us started to meet with others of the same interest. However the people we met were not yet a evolved into the scene as we were.
After five or six years being into B&D my interest changed and I lost contact with my friend. More than likely this dominant nature was always present, but I all it needed was something to nurture it along. In time I enjoyed being a dominant, I enjoyed oriental style rope bondage, spanking, whipping, nipple torture from the begriming. Later I progressed into cock torture, hoods, gags, weights, harnesses, public humiliation, electricity, and golden showers. Then I learned about high volume enemas, colonics, and bardex's. Then into piercing! So you can see I'm well versed in the B&D arts. And B&D is a art! It is not for everyone, it takes years of experience and knowledge. Do not attempt anything alone if you are a beginner. I do this every day, it is my lifestyle and I have learned over the years. So summing up why I am a dominant, it is my destiny. After reading how I became a dominant you may see a correlation with your life and mine, a parallelism. But it not only takes attitude, knowledge, experience and other inner quantities, but it takes the ability and desire to learn more. Dominant's can become limited, the only way to gain is to learn from others. Of course attire, equipment and having knowledge and experience.
I think I have excelled at being this kind of Mistress!!!!!!!
