A new dungeon set to open in a few months in the UK has quite the set up. The space is headed by Goddess L’Amour. I was particularly impressed by their full stable set up. I wish them well and hope they do not get too much push back from local governments.
Sorry to beat a dead horse (too late) but we’ve come across an article from someone who claims to be a pro-Dom and sub. She says she’s in support of the Fifty Shades of Gray franchise. Take a read and let me know what you think in the comments.

Interesting to know about the new dungeon. I also hope there is not any push-back from the local government, there are so many misconceptions about this lifestyle. Take the comment from the Sun article below:
“Yet again, free advertising. I have no wish to stop these people but the constant stories make it look like a normal, mainstream activity. Normalising it makes a mockery of safe, secure relationships.”- ‘Bella’
That tone. “Mockery of safe, secure relationships”. How does anything that can enhance the intimacy, trust and mutuality of a couple (or indeed if there are multiple partners) constitute “mockery”? Is it really wise to make broad generalisations on kinks based on limited insight/experience? I thought this was the Sun, not the Daily Mail…
“Safe”? From my understanding there is usually a dungeon keeper or dungeon master at such facilities to ensure people are adhering to safe practices and that consent is being respected. If a dungeon keeper feels that a scene is potentially unsafe, from my understanding they have the right to interrupt it as well as having privileges that vary from venue to venue.
Besides, there are plenty of vanilla people who are living in insecure relationships. Yet they do not face the same scrutiny. Perhaps because it is considered strange? Which brings me to my next point.
“Normal”? According to an article in the Sun, one in three people have a fetish. One in three. How’s that for “mainstream”? With this in mind, why should there not be a place to explore themselves without fear of ‘shame’? After all, there is a clear demand.
