Mentors and Protectors in BDSM LB118

Episode 118 of Loving BDSM discusses BDSM mentors and protectors

This week we’re talking about BDSM mentors and protectors: what they are, whether they’re necessary, and what to consider if you choose to find one or become one.

In this episode:

  • This week’s sponsor is Play, the first ever kink lifestyle brand bringing you Playboxes of kinky fuckery! Use code lovingbdsm and save!
  • We discussed protectors with Pixie and Andrew on Kink Craft (several months ago) but we wanted to elaborate on our own episode and look at both mentors and protectors.
  • A mentor is different from a protector
  • A mentor guides and teaches. Can be for Dom or sub
  • A protector is kind of a Dom-light without the full responsibility of a D/s agreement
  • There are arguments for and against either
  • Definitely not required
  • It must be consensual, and you must have parameters and boundaries.
  • Choosing a mentor or protector is a lot like choosing a partner – compatibility, communication, a certain amount of trust and faith
