Hello. Allow me to introduce myself. I am known as The Duke. I have been EsMay's husband for the past few years, and in the last few months I have also became her Head of Household in the DD lifestyle. This is my first post in Blogland and I am doing this as part of an activity from Boot Camp Weekend.
This particular homework assignment is to start a DD journal and you can post it on line if you want to. As EsMay already has hers, I have decided to start mine, and EsMay has allowed me to be a co-poster on hers so that I can get all her viewers right away ;) Boot camp has been a lot more fun and exciting than I had expected it to be. The lecture time I think was very helpful to us as a couple, and these homework assignments have allowed us to start some things we have been meaning to like a budget, a set of rules, a contract, and this here Blog post you are reading. Also, I really enjoy planning and leading these sessions, even though it is just the two of us. I like the feeling of being charge, and that people (well, just me and my wife really) get to do the things I would like them to do. Today is when the real fun of Boot camp starts, the spankings! :)
When EsMay first came to me with the idea of DD, I was curious but also scared, as I did not want to do anything that I thought might be "weird" or "dangerous". However, as I learned more about it I found that it was not anything too out there, and also realised how much it could help our marriage. I feel that as a husband, I was not much of a leader because of a lack of self confidence. However, the principles of DD, including the spankings, and being able to tell my wife what to do, I feel this has "given me permission" to practise being a leader and has built my self confidence, where I can now do things like Spank my wife and do this Boot camp weekend. It also has made our bedroom life more exciting, I think because I enjoy the feeling of being in control.
I haven't seen a whole lot of John Wayne movies, but I have liked the half-dozen or so movies I have seen him in, and thought the user name was also appropriate because of the famous scene in McLintock. Also, I respect the man and what he stood up for. Also, I liked the old GI Joe cartoon as a child (showing how old, or how young I am), as well, I played a Duke in a couple of Shakespeare plays (yes I am an amateur community stage actor as well) making it all around an appropriate screen name. Anyway, I hope today goes as well as yesterday. Have a good morning everyone!
