You Found the Path

Its not the Destination but the Journey that matters by bhagathkumar Bhagavathi
"Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?"
"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat.
"I don't much care where –" said Alice.
"Then it doesn't matter which way you go," said the Cat.
"– so long as I get somewhere," Alice added as an explanation.
"Oh, you're sure to do that," said the Cat, "if you only walk long enough."

There are several paths that could have brought you here: anything from a friend who referred you to this site, a query on a search engine or a link randomly found on a website. You may have been following an impulse, a fantasy, a passion... Perhaps you are one of those who see things differently, one of the few who question everything, a revolutionary. Maybe you are just curious and heard about kink, sadomasochism or fetishism and felt an urge to learn more. It no longer matters which path brought you to this point; you are here along with many others who, like you, found this crossroad and are, also like you, making a path anew.

The direction you want to take from here depends on where you want to go. Odds are you already have an idea about what that place might be. You may be craving for the intimacy forged between a dominant and their submissive, maybe you search for the thrills arising from the intricate relationship between pain and pleasure or find joy in the symbolic process that transforms a mundane object into an erotic fetish. Finding your path to move forward is your privilege and duty, I can't tell you which one is it. My only purpose is to show the paths that others have taken because maybe, just maybe, one of them could take you closer to that place you want to reach.

Learning about your passions and having the courage to pursue your dreams is the first step. For many, the realization of the existence of a kink scene will be enough to start their journey but, for others, there will still be obstacles to overcome. Kink is a very personal and private aspect of everyone's life and, as such, is difficult to just jump into a community built upon the sharing of said aspects. In any case, I hope the information contained in this blog will give you some useful information about the BDSM sub-culture. For those extroverts, eager to plunge and dive in the kink scene, I hope to help you save some time in finding tools, resources and references relevant to your endeavor. For those who may be more apprehensive, I hope you'll find in these writings some words of encouragement and comfort and that the information on this blog will help you explore a whole new world. There is no reason to sit afar and hide when there are so many adventures and experiences to share, so many friends to make and so many pleasures to enjoy.

¡Welcome home!
