For more than 20 years I (Master Yang) was in a vanilla relationship where something was always missing. No matter what steps I took I could not fill a void that existed there. When that relationship finally died and I was no longer looking for another one I met someone (slave yin) that changed everything. That was nine years ago and although there was a few hurdles to overcome which included an age difference (not our issue…others’ issue). We started vanilla and quickly discovered that we both wanted something else, something more. At first it was role plays and some light bondage but then we discovered the Power Exchange and things really got interesting.
We have been involved in a Power Exchange relationship in one form or another for about 7 years. As our relationship grew, changed and developed, we met a variety of people who shared a similar belief in the Power Exchange. The road was not always easy, there were several bumps along the way, some experimenting on what we wanted, we made some great friends and lost some along the way. Change is just a part of life… people change… sometimes you outgrow them and sometimes you realize that they are not who you want in your life. Hell you may not be what you thought or maybe you changed or discovered what you were missing. Either way we ended up where we are now… Master and slave. For me, that void was filled by the lifestyle that we have chosen to lead. The base of our relationship is Power Exchange and BDSM is how we play.
Our Power Exchange relationship is 24/7; we are a married couple who believe strongly in monogamy. As a Master I feel that slave yin more than meets my needs and expectations. Have we discussed adding another party at times? Yes but only in a service oriented way to assist with the House duties when we both work.
Over the past few years we have been fortunate to build a solid base of friends, who also live as Master and slave. The one issue that did arise was the closest couple lived 11 hours away for the better part of the year. As a group we all get together twice a year and sometimes a few of us get together more often. When we are together the Power Exchange is more focused, more present than it is in day-to-day life. When apart there was almost an event drop that occurred for a short time and a longing for more focus. Our desire to share our lifestyle with people closer to home is what made us become more involved in the Winnipeg scene. It was our desire to meet people, who share similar interests and belief in the Power Exchange relationship that led us to form a MAsT Chapter in Winnipeg. For more on MAsT see their website mast.net.
MAsT Winnipeg is closing in on the one year mark and experiencing a solid base and growth. It is also how we have been able to meet a more localized base of friends that share in the Master/slave lifestyle. These friends coupled with others who are involved in other Power Exchange relationships have helped us learn and grow over the last year. Our knowledge of Power Exchange relationships is constantly growing and our knowledge and understanding of other forms such as Daddy/babygirl is greatly improved.
Both of us are grateful for the friends we have made over the last year and want to thank them for inviting us into their lives. We hope that our friendships will continue to deepen and grow over the time regardless of what life may throw at us.
