When is it ok to play pretend? Or to play games….let’s see, when one is a child…..and I don’t mean a child at heart. So that’s the easy part.
Is it ok to pretend to be someone you are not? I suppose as long as it’s just in fun, and no one is getting hurt….ie naughty librarian and “student”.
Pretending to be someone’s friend…..and disappearing when their “use” is done…..not so much.
Pretending to be someone you are not is ok I suppose, no matter what age you are, as long as no one else might get hurt by it.
However, somehow if you are pretending to be someone you are not, the chances of no one else getting hurt by it are pretty slim.
No man, or woman, is an island, and what might seem to be a harmless “game” should always be considered carefully before proceeding.
We are all responsible for the people in our lives, I don’t mean we have to “toe the line” or pretend to be something we are not, but at the same time we have to be careful to not be acting in a manner that will hurt those we care about, simply because it seemed like a fun idea at the time.
Risk versus reward…..is this game or pretense you are embarking upon worth the potential risk of discovery and pain to those you love?
I will add here, that in my world of D/s…that is particularly important. In the world of D/s, when a submissive hands control over to a Dominant…..he is supposed to take special care of her, his needs are to be met, but not at her expense. Just sayin’
As responsible adults, this needs to be considered. But that’s just me.
