Currently, Little Kaninchen and I usually speak every night on the phone before we go to sleep. Sometimes I work too late into the night or find myself in a far away timezone that makes nightly communication difficult. Lately, we have been talking from one ear piece to another as we both try to accomplish the various chores that we have to perform daily on each end of the phone. This has proven to make effective communication extremely difficult.
I just set my alarm for 0230 in the morning and decided to Face Time my Little Kaninchen tonight before going to sleep. LK answered me on her iPad and climbed into bed.
“Are you laying in my bed LK?”
LK instinctively climbs out of my bed and answers, “Yes Sir.”
“Would you please go over to my chair and kneel by it as you would normally if I were at home with you and I was actually in my chair?.”
I have mentioned our bedroom setup in several posts. We have a large bedroom with a fireplace and mantel on one side. In front of the fireplace we have a large rug and two large leather tufted chairs that face one another, one is my chair and the other chair belongs to my LK. In between the leather chairs and directly in front of the fireplace there is a large three and a half by five foot matching leather ottoman that we use for play quite frequently.
In the evenings, when I am at home, I will sit in my chair and ask my LK to kneel in front of me with her head on my lap. I will stroke LK’s beautiful blonde hair as her head rests in my lap and we discuss everything. We call this time together “Downtime”. It is a reduced protocol of sorts that allows LK to speak to me regarding any issue.
Our downtime technique has proven powerful; she is kneeling at my feet with her head in my lap while I have her by her hair. How much more of a vulnerable or submissive position could she be in? Doing this always leaves LK with a proper submissive mindset.
Little Kaninchen walked over to my leather chair and knelt beside it in her usual position. She then placed her iPad up on the back of the chair propped up by a blanket. It was perfect! I could see just the top of her blonde hair as she rested her head on the chair cushion. We began to talk. It was amazing how we were communicating so much better than we had earlier in the day. Neither one of us was distracted doing any of our other chores or responsibilities; it was immensely satisfying. We once again were effectively communicating.
Tonight our virtual D/s relationship was a complete success. Little Kaninchen‘s mind was cleared as if I were really there, sitting in my chair with her head in my lap.
Little Kaninchen rose out of the chair with a more submissive mindset. The virtual downtime turned out to be therapeutic for me as well. I felt more in control of her and our household, from a thousand miles away, than I probably ever had before.
