    This week, Dan & dawn talk about the different types of followers and submissive and rank them!...do we rank them? 
     
    # EA635 - Types of S types
    **Dan:** [00:00:00] This week on Erotic Awakening versions of followers, master school and unknown tentacle. 
    **dawn:** Welcome to Erotic Awakening, an exploration of all things erotic. If you are offended by adult topics or prohibited by law, we recommend you stop listening right now. 
    **Dan:** When you support erotic awakening via Patron, you're not only helping support the educational mission for our community, but you'll also receive ad free early access to the podcast, free eBooks, exclusive chats, and other content.
    **dawn:** Thank you to all of our supporters, including our newest one, Jeff. Yay, Jeff. Hi, Jeff. 
    **Dan:** Hi, Dawn. 
    **dawn:** Hi, Dan. 
    **Dan:** Today on the podcast you have no clue what we're gonna be talking about and I'll explain it to you in just a minute. er of fact, I'm not even gonna wait a minute. I'm gonna tell you right now. Are you now?
    Yes. Dawn some people use the term property, slave submissive. We're gonna use a generic term called follower to encompass all that. Awesome. You are a follower. Yes, sir. And what kind of follower 
    are [00:01:00] you? What kind of follower am I? I'm an obedient follower. . Except when I'm not.
    Except when you're not . Which is not usual, but what kind of follower am I as if. As in, I know, but I'm not. 
    Are you a, So there's a variety of types of followers, right? Indeed. , I'm gonna name one. You tell me what it is, 
    **dawn:** what it is. 
    **Dan:** Okay. Sexual 
    **dawn:** service. Usually sexual service means that is all you are a slave of is the sexual side of things.
    How 
    **Dan:** about. Administrative slave. 
    **dawn:** Again, that just means you do administrative stuff. Usually there's not sex involved or play or things like that. It's just about being the right hand of the master. 
    **Dan:** What would you call our friend? I don't know her fat name. Shea's girl. 
    **dawn:** Oh do they even have a name?
    I think they use lower level. Okay. Because they [00:02:00] follow that kind of, that that show Victorian style of Yeah, it's Victorian style. Abby Downton. Abby, right? . I don't know that they actually have a name for it though. Okay. 
    **Dan:** So what about tip slave? You remember tip? 
    **dawn:** What was Temp Slave service 
    **Dan:** Temp Slave was, and that's a name, a nice name that we call Half for somebody.
    , who, She was very much a service orientated person. 
    **dawn:** Oh yeah. She didn't wanna name, She was it was a, she knew we called her Temp Slave. That's what we called her, was Temp Slave. She knew it was for a temporary thing and it was all about service. It had to, I had come outta surgery. And it was all about doing the things that I couldn't do and taking me to appointments and things like that.
    But you guys negotiated a back and forth, but it was still service. You taught her something for what she provided. So that was really cool. 
    **Dan:** So the common thread in all these. Is that there is a give and take that there is a, I'm gonna teach you a thing. , I'm gonna do a thing for you and you're gonna provide a service for me.
    . In [00:03:00] the case of a sexual slave, it might be I'm gonna drive you to deep slutty lands. In the case of a service submissive you, it might be you're gonna take care of my dog and my car, and I'm gonna teach you leather protocol. Et cetera, et 
    **dawn:** cetera. And that's why I didn't have a label for me because I'm not really a service slave, which is a title a lot of followers use.
    Even though I do a lot of service and I like doing service for you, I'm not in particular a service follower like our friend. A 
    **Dan:** is it okay then to. Is there is an administrative and where you, and people use different terminology, but we're gonna use a terminology that people I think are gonna easily understand what we'

but thats all good ,

Thank you for helpful pointers

I come from the BDSM world and this podcast was recommended by a play partner of mine.

Your podcast is and has been super helpful. I went all the way back to the beginning and started there. Boy am I grateful I did. I take literal notes of books and shows and podcasts from y’all. And every single time I think of skipping ahead, the episode I’m listening to is absolute gold. So I’ll hear about this review in a while ☺️

Also suuuuper helpful is your experience trying to meld the swinger lifestyle with BDSM. I’m a slave, and boy is there a difference in protocol and what’s acceptable between the two lifestyles. But without dawn’s perspective and translating her early experiences, I wouldn’t have had fun at a swing club.

Because of this podcast, I am more able to actualize my authentic self safely and confidently.

Thank Y/you Dan and dawn! Y’all rock.

{Kari} ,

Thank you.

The way DnD explain things in a level and obviously non judgmental way is amazing. A lot of clarity can be gained by listening.
