What was M/s 365?
You may be seeing posts with titles that start with “[M/s 365]” or the category “Master/slave 365” and wonder what that’s all about? Well, simply put, it was our project for 2014/2015 – during our title year as International Master/slave – sharing a year in the life of a Master/slave couple, one day at a time. One thought, or one huge post – maybe a thought, something we encountered together, something we discovered. Master/slave relationships take work, take time and take attention… and we want to share that with you. One day at a time. For a year.
How did this all start?
We posted about this back in Feb. 2014:
Awhile back, I had the pleasure to speak to Leon MonkeyFetish (@Monkeyfetish on Twitter) about his “Rope 365″ project he had. His vision was to do a rope tie each day for 365 days in row and post them to his Twitter and Instagram feeds. He just completed that project in January. I had seen the posts and clicked on some of them, not being much of a rope guy, but I found the project concept interesting so I wanted to talk to him about it. It was a very interesting conversation, but what was interesting was to hear about how he looked at his rope work a bit differently now. (I’m reading between the lines here from his comments.) It looked like to me that he had become very mindful (and more skilled) in his rope work.
I’m not a stranger to blogging or to doing these sorts of projects, but it never occurred to me to do something like that as part of this blog. So, my slave and I discussed it (and still are discussing it) and we have come up with a rough plan of doing something similar, but from the perspective of what goes on in a Master/slave relationship for 365 days – what are our thoughts, our victories, our stumbles and our moments that reflect who we are? What if it’s 10 days in a row of “Life goes on, had sex, served Master” sort of thing? (Answer – I’m sure there will be some thought we can write about.)
However, the chance to be that mindful of our journey, in that we would record it, and share it, intrigues both slave angie and I to no end.
So, as crazy as it sounds, we’re going to give it a try. We’ve decided that the best day to do this will be the immediate day after the 2014 International Master/slave contest – win or lose – we begin to record what our lives are like in an M/s relationship. That means on March 9th, the first post will go up.
We don’t know if this will equate to a post a day, or we “batch” them together, especially if traveling – that’s probably something we’re going to have to account for (possibly by email submissions from the phone, if needs be).
We’re both a bit nervous about this, as this will be a far more intimate look into us than my ramblings on Facebook are, and slave angie has never been much of one to put a lot of herself online. How will it look and what will we discover on our journey after IM/s?
We’re all going to find out.
How can I see the M/s 365 posts?
Well, that’s where the “[M/s 365]” titles can help, or you can click on this link for the “Master/slave 365” category to see all the posts.
What happens after the year?
We’ll probably take a break! Haha… we’ve talked about possibly putting the posts into a book of some sort, depending on how well this project goes. It’s all an experiment with some goals. As of this writing, we’re 2 1/2 weeks into it, so ask us at about week 40.
What if I have more questions?
