Dungeon Fungeon & the difference between 'torment' and 'torture'

My sweet Serafina, upon occasion, reminds me of the power of the words I use. I don't want to bore you with a bunch of prattle about my business, but my slave/wife's gentle reminders are at least somewhat ironic, because writing and communications are my trade.
I'm very much used to using powerful words to convey messages, illustrate needs, not to mention words designed to help create desires. But, I occasionally need reminders simply because I use powerful words so very much that I am in danger of becoming somewhat immune to their complete effect.
I am of the belief that this is also a common phenomena with some words in use by the BDSM community.
Let's explore, as one example, the common use of the word "dungeon", if you are willing to indulge me for a moment.
I'm currently drafting a future blog entry about renovations we've undertaken here at House D'Amore. My first draft refers to - "Two dedicated dungeon spaces on two separate floors of our…

about last night

I used a new silk blindfold on my slave/wife last night.
I've used blindfolds on a couple of previous occasions with her, and intend to make it a more regular part of our play as she becomes more and more comfortable with her submission and the increasing intensity of our relationship.
The new toy is the Lelo Intima Silk Blindfold as pictured in this ad photo . . .

Soon I'll be posting a review of my perspective on the blindfold as a dominant, and then I'll ask my slave/wife to make some additional comments from her view (or lack thereof) from the submissive side . . .

TMI Tuesday: August 23, 2011

1. When you go to a party, would you rather show up accidentally underdressed or overdressed?
Serafina - I enjoy dressing up!

2. What is something you have won and how did you win it? (Inspired by the An Optimistic Virgin)
Serafina - Master Michael's Trust

3. Do you squeeze the toothpaste from the middle, end, or top?
Serafina - Always from the bottom - I even slide the toothbrush handle over the tube from the bottom up to make sure it is used up evenly!

4. What is something your parents used to say to you that you promised yourself you would never say–but now you catch yourself saying frequently?
Serafina - I can't think of anything. . .

5. What 3 lies did you regularly tell your parents? If applicable, what 3 lies do you tell your parents now?
Serafina - I believe that lying is unacceptable. That said, I would not tell all if it was hurtful. For example if you got a new hair-do and were happy with itI would with-hold my opinion and agree with you.

6. What is something t…

letter to Wyred Slave - makers of my slave/wife's permanent collar

Dear Wyred Slave, The collar is very beautiful and we are absolutely thrilled with our purchase, thank you very much! We've started a blog about our life as a Master/slave husband and wife and intend to detail our purchase of a collar from you in a post very soon. The site's URL is I plan to send you a link to the post(s) about the collar you crafted for us once I've managed to shoot some pictures and write a glowing description of Wyred Slave. We do plan to order more from you in the near future, as my wife/slave has requested a wrist and/or ankle bracelet to match her collar. I haven't told her yet, but I am also eyeing a locking belt as the picture of a locking belt over a corset on your site has given me inspiration! I just wanted to say thank you again for the wonderful collar, it's a true pleasure doing business with you. Sincere regards, Michael Samadhi

presents for slave girl Serafina

I just ordered some very special treats for my slave/wife because she's been a very good girl for a very long time under some very difficult circumstances.
Now, when it comes to "romantic" presents most ladies would prefer things like lingerie or perfume or massage oils, and I certainly have a great appreciation for those things, but my visions are usually a little darker and quite often there's more leather than lace.
So, just for fun, I decided that the readers of our blog will know the identity of her presents even before my sweet Serafina finds out for herself . . .
In case you are wondering, I'm very certain my Serafina is a good girl and I just she won't ruin the surprise by clicking on the links I'm about to share here . . .
Surprise #1 Surprise #2 Surprise #3
While on my shopping spree I did throw in a couple goodies for myself, although I suppose they really are for use on her . . .
toy #1 toy #2
Once the presents arrive we will write about them here and …

the naked lunch

My beautiful slave/wife and I had a wonderful romantic lunch together yesterday . . .
Delicious smells were coming from the kitchen when I got the call from Serafina that my meal was prepared.
There was one single setting at the table, with a delicious steak (medium rare) and steamed broccoli florets as a side dish.
My slave/wife knelt gracefully on the floor beside my chair. As I ate my own lunch, I fed Serafina her portion straight from my fork.
I really did intend to bring back a picture . . . at least of the steak :) . . . but Serafina kept loosing the straps off the negligee she was wearing, first exposing one breast, then the other.
Before it was done I had her kneeling naked beside my table, and I forgot all about the picture of the steak . . .

the lead wheel

My name is Michael Samadhi, this blog will detail the journey I share with my wife Serafina.

Serafina is also my consensual slave, a designation that might confuse or bother someone who's familiarity with slavery is only with forced (or non-consensual) slavery.  With that in mind, I'll try to better explain the dynamics of our relationship . . .

The most simple analogy I can offer is that our relationship is like a bicycle.  I am the lead wheel of the bicycle, it's my responsibility to steer our relationship to assure we reach the desired destinations.  Obviously then, the beautiful Serafina, my partner in all things, is the rear wheel.  Her love and devotion, and yes even her surrender, are the forces that power our relationship.

Make no mistake, regardless of who makes the final decisions, the relationship is a true partnership.  A bicycle loses it's identity - ceases to exist - without a rear wheel, instead it becomes a unicycle.  So a Dominant needs a submissive, a…

Spiritual BDSM by Michael and Serafina Samadhi

Welcome to the virtual home of Michael and Serafina Samadhi, where we share our exploration of Spiritual BDSM.

I'm your host, Michael Samadhi.  That's my smiling face (not to mention my wandering fingers!) in the picture that accompanies this post.

I'll be joined here by my lovely slave/wife, Serafina.  Those are her beautiful legs in the picture, although I'm quite sure you'll see quite a bit more of her if you follow this blog.

Although Serafina calls me "Master", you are welcome to call me Samadhi or even Michael.  While I am a full time dominant (the term Master is pretty much interchangeable from my perspective) to Serafina, my interest is only in consensual exchange of power, I certainly would not attempt to impose anything upon my readers, or any one else for that matter.

Although I call my slave/wife "slut" or "wench," not to mention a variety of other appellations, you are welcome to address her as Serafina, or even Ms. Samadh…
