Above; a man’s back has been reddened into the shape of angel wings with a knife.
I came across this photo again (source) while working on an article and wanted to share it separately because it’s one of my favorite BDSM photos ever - and believe me, I’ve seen a lot of them. I recently got a new laptop so I lost all my files and I’d been looking for it again. I love the symbolism of the wings; in my interpretation, at least, they symbolize the sort of freedom that comes with submission. People outside BDSM circles often see submission as something caging, restricting, shameful, but you’ll hear so many submissives telling you the opposite; it’s freeing. As I’ve said before, submission isn’t giving up, it’s giving in. Letting go; and there’s a kind of freedom in that. Being a submissive takes so many strong qualities; selflessness, love, generosity, confidence… for a lot of subs, it’s completely the opposite of how a “vanilla” person might view it.
Anyway, it’s two in the morning and I’m not coherent but I adore this photo and I hoped some of you might, too.
Reblogged for the photo and for the caption.
Maybe I’ll do one of those youtube things where people submit questions and I answer them ~
Yes!!! And powerful questions done by your loyal followers…
Chimed by a ball whacking sub acting like vana white.
Finally, I can present you my little comic ‘Hearts for Sale’ these are the first 10 pages.

I’m very nervous about this since it’s my first self-published book. I hope you like the story. Following pages are coming soon!
