The second volume of Submissive Women combines another three of Charlotte Edwards' popular stories in one collection. TURNING THE TABLES Emma, the ever submissive mistress is to entertain another couple this evening in her Master's dungeon. But things don't quite go as expected. MY SUBMISSIVE ENTERTAINS Emma was completely submissive to her married Master. Always ready to expand her experience, tonight he takes her to a lap dancing club and watches her entertain both the patrons and the other entertainers. REPOSSESSING THE MISTRESS Emma thought she could manage without her married Master. Besides, she needed to get on with her life and her biological clock was ticking. Realising she was wrong and desperately needed Him, she invited Him for a chat in a hotel room. He came to repossess her with his bag of tricks and his wife! Extract: 'Still holding Charlotte firmly by the neck, I strip off her jacket and firmly fasten the cuffs to her wrists. Dragging her to where a rope hangs waiting from a pulley in the centre of the room, I fasten the clip at the end to a convenient ring between the cuffs and haul her up on to her tip toes. The moment I take my hand from her throat, she begins to struggle and protest that this wasn't what she wanted, threatening me with all sorts of reprisals and ordering her husband to stop me. Tying off the rope, I move to stand in front of her to watch her futile struggling. Her lithe body is now stretched out as tightly as a bowstring and she can't do much but sway from side to side; even that is rapidly tiring her out. Her mouth is still active though, now spewing obscenities at a rapid rate. 'Thwack!' I slap her once across the cheek. Her mouth immediately falls silent and her big eyes fill with tears. I admire her splendid body. Her breasts are displayed at their finest, her succulent nipples pointing toward the ceiling. She is a rare beauty, her flame red hair frames the face of a china doll and her upper body appears to have no fat on it at all. Unzipping her skirt, I let it drop around her feet and gently caress her little pussy.' These are explicit erotic tales which will appear to both sexes and as you might expect, have detailed descriptions of many sexual activities, including bondage, whipping and double penetration. If that sort of stuff offends you, please do not read it!
Mark, Alice, Peter, and Jay are each of them very different submissives. But they share the same compulsive need - the same yearning - to submit completely to a powerful dominatrix.
For more than 150 years, empowering practices have been used by social workers in their work with families, but the techniques of today differ significantly from those of the pioneers or even from those of a few years ago. Today's practitioners recognize that empowering others is impossible; social workers can, however, assist others as they empower themselves. This book integrates time-honored approaches with today's more modest goals, mindful of what empowerment can and cannot do. Synthesizing several theoretical supports& mdash;the strengths perspective, system theory, theories of family well-being, and theories of coping& mdash;the author responds to the question "What works?" with today's families in need. Practice illustrations are provided throughout to bring concepts to life and, more important, to present families describing their own experiences with achieving empowerment.
