Give Me All Your Money
Financial domination has to be one of the more contentious aspects of D/s. On coming across this kink the initial reaction is often one of horror and repugnance.
There was a Twitter thread on Sunday started by @_Masterseye about some of the uglier FinDom terminology turning up in her timeline via RT’s. It seems I set myself up to produce a post on the topic of FinDom. It’s a topic I’ve avoided writing on up to now because as @HannahLockhardt noted it’s pretty damned complicated.
The resulting post is really long and has no sexy pictures. You have to get almost to the end before there’s even a pun on song titles. Yet the feedback has been exceptional. With Hannah’s encouragement this is my first foray in to Wicked Wednesday because the post fits the #Educate prompt.
Thoughts on Financial Domination can be found here.
If anyone wants to tackle the question I’m too cowardly to address of the usually hostile female reaction to FinDom, I’d be fascinated.

[…] Give Me All Your Money by Melody I found Melody’s detailed assessment of financial dominance to be extremely interesting. I have seen FinDom adverts and treads on Fetlife and have to be honest that I find the whole concept both fascinating and slightly weird. Mostly this seems to relate to a dominant woman entering into a D/s relationship with a male sub, with a heavy emphasis on financial dominance. This is a long post, but well worth reading to the end as Melody discusses the various aspects of this phenomena. It is clear that there are a range of behaviours from the clearly consensual and ethical to those that are definitely abusive. […]

Great post – I am with Marie in that I did not and don’t really have an opinion on it – and I can be extremely opinionated on some stuff 😉 I suppose I just thought where there is a demand there must be a supply so money here will change hands. Nice to have you in this meme and will have a look around your site 😉

Opinions always welcome 🙂

That was an interesting article, and where I have heard of FinDom before, I have never stopped to think about it, whether in a positive or a negative way. I just let life happen…
A warmhearted welcome to Wicked Wednesday! Hope to see you here more 🙂

Thank you Marie.
You’re a bit unusual in that attitude, most seem to hear of it and gape in horror at the concept 😉
@BibulousOne has been trying to get me to post for Wicked Wednesday for a while – finally lost my virginity.
