I've been doing some looking around the site for interestingly new content and I didn't find anything that fit my definition of 'new and interesting' per se. But, seeing as I haven't posted anything or interacted with ADISC at all in a hellishly long time, I've actually developed a good question, I believe.
Now, we've all seen the 'emotional vs. sexual' question being raised, but it's seemingly always an umbrella for diapers -- or, at most, it's broken down into smaller regions e.g. furry, *B, DL. But I'm going a little more in depth and reaching out to the fur/babyfurs: How about collars?
Are collars sexual or emotional for you? Why?
For me, I suppose it's both. Sexual because, I mean, hell.. Something tight around the neck, the whole dom/sub thing, etc -- very common fetish. But it's also emotional because I enjoy the feeling of being submissive - and not just sexually. Someone's pet, so to speak. Like, during pet play or something, if someone puts a collar around my neck, I'd be compelled to act submissive toward them, very much like they're my owner. But the same goes for outside of pet play. It could be someone I look up to, a close friend, a girlfriend, a boyfriend, whatever. It's a weird, sort of symbolic thing. Sexual anything aside, if I let you put a collar around my neck you own me and I serve you until you choose to take it off.
I'm just wondering how the rest of you feel about this subject. Opinions? Thoughts? Experiences?
