The reason why I want to be part of this platform is because as a queer and African American person like me can’t find acceptance. I do not have access where I am allowed to be me, to be raw as I want or to be free as I want. I have to limit myself in order to play their rules of acceptance. I heard about Balaclava.Q and read the website. I realize I found a safe place where I can submit without judgement.
The purpose of this photoshoot is about control. I want to advertise my power as I am his master. The submissive role and the dominant role is what I am interested in and curious about what power do I have. What you see here is the power dynamic between the pug and me (the dom). As he striped off his control one by one, I was able to capture the willing to please me and you.
