I wrote a post about mentorship and i said i would write a post about a Protector.
I will start by saying that i think a Protector would take the place of the Master whilst at an event or where a sub would need to be accompanied. Also it would have to be someone that a Master and/or sub would have complete trust in. To me this is an extremely important position especially if play is involved afterall a Master is putting the life of His sub in their hands.
But what does a sub do who doesnt have a Dom or Master they can call upon? Does the same amount of protection apply whether its online or real time? How far should a Protector protect? Also what if there is distance between them what actions can a Protector implement to protect the sub? or would there be any point in protecting someone who does not live in the same area, do they involve others in this?
I suppose there are lots of actions/steps to undertake this important role. Would the Protector have limitations, what if a sub doesnt agree to these, does the Protector just abandon the sub?
I realise i have actually asked more questions than given any answers or opinions with regard to actions that could be taken to protect a sub, e.g. presence, open and consistent communication, phone numbers etc.
I would really be interested in hearing from Doms or sub who have found themselves in this role in the past or are currently protecting a sub or being protected and what actions have been put in place.
