I'm having difficulty coming to terms with who I am...:

 1 Vorthon, Thu, 30th Sep '10 9:58:21 AM from a pale blue dot
I'm a little over ten months away from being legally considered an adult (here in Canada, anyways), and I've been looking at who I am lately. I can't help but be a little disturbed. I've developed a masochistic streak, to the point where my ideal relationship would be a total power exchange where I'm the one who is essentially stripped of their freedom. The reason I find this disturbing is that I'm normally the kind of person who doesn't like to be controlled, yet I find the idea of being reduced to a slave... well, 'exciting' (IYKWIM). I'm confused about who I am, really.

Help please?

We all have our kinks; you should come to the Fetishes page.

You like being humiliated and forced to do things you 'normally' wouldn't want to....

What are the laws in your region? I know some places (such as Britain and Italy) have a possibility of arrest for even consensual BDSM if the authorities discover it.

Also, I would probably recommend against any full-time contracts, for the simple reason that there's more to life than sex.

If you're going to give all of your agency to another person, you should be entirely sure that they'll always have your best interests at heart. Somehow I don't think such a person is easy to find. If you give someone else your control you'll have none for yourself.
Those who accept their fate find happiness; those who defy it, glory.
I think Fetishes might be more qualified to help you with this issue than On-Topic Conversations.
If this bothers you, look into counseling. They might be able to change this, by figuring out the underlying reasons for it.
If I'm asking for advice on a story idea, don't tell me it can't be done.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
