  1. I am so happy to have read about your withdraw during vanilla time. my Master just left for 9 months and I have experienced the hardest adjustment ever. It dawned on me it was probably some hormonal adjustment from the lack of endorphins. I also experienced some of the worst PMS ever. And after reading that part of your post it just kind of clicked!

  2. Thank you for sharing! It sounds like vanilla time provided some wonderful insight as you were able to compare and contrast lifestyles. I totally understand what you wrote about the sexual energy! On a scale of 1-10, I don’t think I’ve dipped below a 5 in quite awhile, but I’ve noticed I’m not at an 8 or 9 like I was for the first couple of months. D/s has brought sex back to the forefront of our marriage again. As always, I love reading about your dynamic…thank you for sharing!

  3. I’m glad you had fun but to an outsider like myself, this vanilla time is really just more domestic discipline, isn’t it? So you really didn’t have any time off, as it were because you were ordered, under pain of punishment, to do nothing. “Vanilla” is a word used to describe the ordinary and mundane and I guess because vanilla is considered to bland (but it really isn’t if you really know anything about vanilla) and “business as usual.” What you described doesn’t fit that connotation, at least in my opinion and, yeah, I have the nerve to point that out, with all respect to you, Kayla, and Mike.

    1. It was in fact “vanilla + abstinence” in the generally accepted use of the term. No discipline, no required acts of service, no aex, etc. just a “normal” DD-free environment. Albeit with the threat of future punishment if we did not adhere to it.


  4. If ever there was a ‘good’ time to take a pause from DD, right after an M/s immersion would certainly provide a shocking contrast. Mike’s observation that Vanilla Time was in fact submissive service, obviously didn’t resonate with either of you.

  5. Ugh, I could imagine it would be torture in and of itself! Hey, I don’t know where else to post this, so I wanted to let you know, in case you didn’t. We found a way to have sex on my period without the “mess” factor. There is a product called Softcup, basically looks like a huge condom and you place it up in your vagina and onto your cervix, where it forms a seal. then every few hours, you dump it out, kind of like a Luna cup, but it is a soft plastic thing. Anyway, it says right in the instructions, you can have sex while wearing it. your partner can’t feel it. It takes a bit to get the hang of how to insert it, but once you do, it is painless! We used it when we had planned an “exhibition” and Aunt Flo showed up 4 days early. It was wonderful! Just a tip for you for Kayla, if you didn’t already know. We got ours at our local Walgreens. AND no risk of toxic shock syndrome, and nothing hanging down like with tampons.
