D/s: Self-Discovery after an Unhealthy Beginning (Part One)

This is an unusual post for me, since I will touch on an incident that I have only told one person (kat) in my life. It took place long ago and has lost its main power-hold over me; although, I must admit it is still a little embarrassing to me because of my alpha personality. Even though my mind tells me I was only 15 (less than half the age of my manipulator) the alpha in me still has a hard time admitting I was manipulated.


My D/s journey began during my teen years in a time before the “information age.” Back then you could not use a computer, I-pad, or smart phone to connect to the web: letting you fingers surf online with keyboard and mouse to find an overabundance of fetish fare.

I suppose you can say I was initiated into D/s the “old-fashioned” way. An older woman—who I later learned was married—plucked me from my fairly normal vanilla world of teen sex and immersed me into the darker world of kink.

She had recognized my natural alpha personality while observing me dealing with others my age. And she decided to open my eyes to the world of D/s by guiding me into a dominant position. In other words, she topped from the bottom in order to get the satisfaction she craved.

Now, for any of you who think I’m bragging because of my young age at the time, allow me to set the record straight. This woman used her age, experience, and education to seduce me…along with her position of authority, because she was one of my teachers. That’s how she continually observed my actions with others my age. I even found out later that she had a Xeroxed copy of my education file.

I had personal issues and was expelled from every local high school. So, I was eventually sent to a continuation school two cities away from where I lived, where this woman taught.

With her instruction and my alpha personality, it didn’t take long before I assumed control in the bedroom. However, she used a combination of seduction, veiled threats, and various rewards to keep the relationship going.

Unlike today, this was during a time when you did not constantly hear of teachers getting busted for sexual-misconduct with students. Plus, no one wanted to believe a woman was capable of such behavior (which is still the case in some areas). And on top of that, no teenage male (especially an alpha) wants to admit he was taken advantage of by a female.

Fortunately, for me, I’ve always been a quick learner. So, I didn’t just learn how to become dominant in the bedroom. Since I figured I was stuck in the relationship for a while, I decided to take advantage of it. I countered her techniques with similar ones of my own: especially the veiled threats.

In exchange for not exposing her to the cops, school, and her husband she gave me control over her body, along with various other rewards. And she willingly agreed. Sure, she didn’t want to be exposed, but she truly craved the rough sex. After all, she initially broke the law in order to get me to fulfill fantasies and scratch a sexual itch her hubby wasn’t taking care of. And you can bet I made sure the sex continued to get rougher until I severed all ties with her at the end of my junior year, when I enlisted in the military.

One of the last things I did prior to getting on the plane, was send a short letter, an audio cassette, and a half-dozen photos to her hubby. And from that point on I never looked back (except during a period of introspection many years later and while completing my psychology degree). I became a member of an elite military unit and had no time for such things. And, to this day, I don’t know what her hubby did with the information.

I grew-up, moved beyond that negative period, to a point it no longer mattered. Although, there is a part of me that hopes her hubby did not just require a “pound of flesh,” but actually made a few calls.

As a natural alpha, I will most likely never find a way to look favorably on the woman that initiated me in the D/s world, because of the anger and sense of powerlessness—or rather power loss, since I still had power among peers—that I had to overcome. But, I must admit, that D/s would become an integral part of my life from that point onward.

I attempted to compensate for the initial feelings of lost power in the unhealthy relationship with the teacher early on. I took what I learned of D/s—BDSM and used it in relationships with girls my age. It fed my need to dominate, which I had to grow into and fight for in the unhealthy relationship.

Unfortunately, because of the unhealthy relationship (and another incident), I would abstain from a 24/7 D/s lifestyle for a very long time.

I participated in D/s while playing the field. And, since my first marriage only lasted a few years and left the proverbial “bad taste” in my mouth regarding long-term relationships, I spent over a decade and a half playing the field before considering another long-term relationship.

During that period, I dated a lot. Most of those dates were with vanilla girls that might accept a little kink now and then. But, the law of average equally made sure girls in the areas of grey-to-black crossed my path from time-to-time. And with each D/s encounter I took the opportunity to expand my knowledge, because it continued to feed needs within me.

Sure, it fed my need to dominate, along with satisfy fantasies, but it also got me back in touch with my need to satisfy the wants and needs of the submissive female, while keeping them protected and safe.

D/s also allowed me to regain my love and respect for women, which had been damaged as a result of the unhealthy relationship. It likewise helped me reconnect and transition back into society after being wounded in the military. And it equally helped me become more accepting of my inner and outer scars through the acceptance I witnessed from legitimate practitioners in the D/s—BDSM world.

My long-term, on-again off-again, participation in D/s has truly been a journey of self-discovery… which I will continue discussing in Part Two of this piece, that will be posted Friday.

  1. I can think of a few female teachers I would fantasize about and then put them into this position. Mine remain fantasies. Fantasies are always what we want. Real life doesn’t often work like fantasy. Glad you were able to move past this.


    1. I had an occasional teacher fantasy prior to this, myself. But the manipulation and veiled threats really sucked the positive energy out of it.
      Thanks, CM.

  2. Thank you for sharing this, Alpha. As a teacher myself, it angers me to think of a teacher using his/her position of power over a student in this way. I know it is probably more common place than we think.

    1. Sadly, I believe you’re right. They know which kids have personal issues that they can use to their advantage. And, though I eventually used her own tactics against her to make it easier on myself, the situation spanned 2 years before I severed the ties to go in the military. No child should ever be put in that position. That’s one of the reasons I’m so protective of others.
      Thank you, Dbl-N.

  3. I’m happy that you were able to move past this, Daddy; so many people aren’t able to put the past in the past, and it damages their relationships.
    Great post. ♥️


  4. I’m sorry you had to go through all that, Alpha. No child should ever have to go through that, it makes me so angry that she thought that was ok. Happy you came out the other side and are moving forward 😊 V x


    1. We appreciate the gesture, CM, and hope you aren’t offended when we decline. But, kat and I decided this would be an award-free blog when we began. We simply do it because we are in the lifestyle and enjoy it. But it’s nice to know we touch people in some positive way.

      Have a nice day. And thank you, again.

  5. How did I is these two posts? Well now I have caught up, thank you for sharing and being so open. As a teacher it horrifies me that people behave like this and yet I know it is true. I had some experiences myself when I was at school of them using their position to take advantage. This left me feeling guilty and like I must be doing something wrong but was nothing to the level you describe here. I am glad that you have been able to move past it and also that young people are more aware of their rights now. 😊

    1. I’m sorry to hear that you had some negative experiences, as well. It made me angry for a lot of years. I would actually focus and turn that anger against any bullies I saw…till I realized it was still a negative and I needed to get rid of the anger completely. But it took several years and a lot of introspection before it was gone.
      Thank you for the heartfelt comment, Missy.

  6. I’m glad you healed from it all and learned lessons that benefited you.

    On a number of occasions, I have spoken up amongst friends about how males can be abused in this manner. It is not a point of pride and braggadocio.
