The early casual and innocuous conversation which included some minor teasing by the two of them suddenly turned into a more formal "meeting" to go over what Paul termed "ground rules." The three of us were gathered around the island in our kitchen, Paul seated between the two of us. i was to his right with Diane snuggled up close to him on the other side. When Paul suggested i get a pencil and paper to take notes i knew this wasn't going to be a discussion. i was there to listen.
For a brief moment i wanted to speak up. i wanted to say "hold on a minute" or something that would shift the balance of power that was establishing itself so suddenly. But i didn't. i suppose it's my submissive nature, my personality, my DNA, who knows. Before i knew it, Diane had already retrieved a pad of paper and a pencil and slid it in front of me.
Paul began by saying that for this to work, it had to be enjoyable and emotionally fulfilling for all three of us and "Not just you terri." He made a point to say that in his opinion enjoyment and fun were two different things. "There might be times where this isn't much fun, especially for you and I can understand that." i was still smarting from how firmly he took control of this casual meeting, yet i understood what he meant.
Before he went over ground rules, he first wanted to talk about his relationship with Diane. He firmly stated that it wasn't nor would it ever be his intent to take Diane away from me. "It's not what She wants and it's not what I want, so that is one thing you don't have to worry about." It was nice to hear and comforting since he said it with such conviction.
The next part of our meeting was very uncomfortable for me and i sensed the same from Diane. Paul addressed the kinky side of their play. i knew Diane enjoyed being submissive to Paul, i just never realized to what extent. Now i knew. "Diane's my submissive when I'm with Her, and only at times I specify. you'll need to get comfortable with that. It's all safe. I do nothing to Her that She's not comfortable with. She has a safe word. I want you to know this ahead of time." Of course, i'm paraphrasing here, but that was the gist of what he was telling me. i was surprised and shocked. i looked at Diane but didn't make eye contact with Her. She suddenly looked so submissive with Her head down and eyes lowered. Again, i said nothing and Paul quickly moved to his ground rules.
He told me i should write these down and if there was anything that wasn't clear to ask questions now.
In summary, here are Paul's rules.
- When the three of us are together both Diane and i are his submissives. i have to obey them both, but his orders take precedence over Hers.
- i will need to come up with a safe word.
- Unless we are in a public setting, i will always address him as "Sir."
- When the three of us are together i must always be in chastity and he will determine if i am allowed out of it. At all other times, that's up to Diane.
- i am to send him a copy of the daily chastity report i send to Diane.
- i cannot have regular intercourse with Diane. (This one stung a little when he joked that this shouldn't be a big problem since Diane had already shared with him that it had been years since i'd been allowed inside her anyway.)
- Absolute discretion. ("I want it as much as you guys do.")
- No sex with others. None at all. ("That means no Jake.")
- If I don't agree with these ground rules then things will revert back to the way they were. He and Diane will continue to see each other the way they have been.
- If I agree, then it's a total commitment. No picking and choosing what I want and don't want.
- Once this starts, any of us can put an end to it at any time. No questions asked and no hysterics. We have the right to walk away.
- There could be other rules that might be added, but they would be minor in nature.
He asked if i had any questions and i said no. It was all pretty clear and i didn't really feel like talking. i was probably too embarrassed. i should have said something sooner. Much sooner. But the most startling and unnerving revelation of the whole afternoon was about to come.
"I really want to make this work. I want to please the both of you, but my pleasure is also important"
he said. "You're lucky to have Diane. You have no idea how hard She's worked to get to this point. I've read your blog so I think I understand your needs. I believe this can be enjoyable. For all of us."
When he said he knew about the blog i felt sick to my stomach. It was an awful feeling. i looked at Diane and again She was looking away. i felt betrayed. This blog is where i bared my soul and shared my innermost feelings, fantasies, kinks, etc. Now he knew everything, or had access to all of it.
Paul obviously sensed my shock and told me to "Relax. It's all safe. It was important that I understand." He ended the meeting by telling me to take my time to think about all he'd brought up.
The meeting formally ended when he took Diane by the hand and led Her to our bedroom, leaving me alone with my thoughts.
Naturally, it was a very emotional evening for both Diane and i. Very testy at times. We both said things we shouldn't have. There were apologies.
i've got lots to process. Not the least of which is how i can go about blogging the way i always have. There's been a set of eyes peering in on and studying this blog. And not just any set of eyes. They belong to my Wife's lover.
