A few months back I was browsing POF and came across a profile that I can only describe as slightly terrifying. This was the profile of a 39 yr old man, average looking, has children, in a relationship already, looking for “friends” and wants to dominate you…. Wait, what?!! Yes, please join my alternative lifestyle and be my new sub. This profile was complete with pictures of the “dungeon” and a link to his website. Sir Stone, as he is called on his site, has a family where he is head of the household and founded said site. Beneath him there are several other members of this so-called family who are either doms that “own” various members of said family or subs who are owned or are free to be owned, I guess.
While I am in no way shocked by this lifestyle, nor do I judge such things, I really don’t think that a dating site is the right place to enlist new members for your group. I mean, he had pictures of his dungeon, complete with a BDSM cross and his ummm, tools of the trade. Let me just show you:
Yes, these are the ACTUAL photos. Now, I have to hand it to him, at least he was open and up front about the whole thing. That was until I received a message from this guy about a week ago and all traces of said site, lifestyle, and proclivities has been removed!! I can only tell you that I am thankful that this man is not my type physically and had I not seen this profile when it was first created, I still would not have replied.
That being said, can you imagine if I had been attracted to him and not had the benefit of having viewed the original profile? On paper he has everything I would normally look for: kids, lives close enough (in my town), job, shared interest in photography (we both get paid for this), single, and so on. It wouldn’t be a stretch to suggest that it could have been a distinct possibility. We would meet for coffee or a drink of some kind and perhaps arrange another meeting. This follow-up meeting would occur, he possibly invites me back to his place and now I’m led into the red room of pain where he proceeds to offer to tie me to the cross and give me a nice flogging to relax me. *shudder*
Consider this a warning to anyone in the GTA and East. If a man by the name of Preston (I won’t give you his profile name as even this dude deserves a modicum of privacy) fitting the above description asks you back for a nightcap, think twice. Better yet, send me an email and I’ll let you know if he is indeed one and the same.
