I had the pleasure of doing a great session with a lovely gentleman the other day and the matter of release came up. For most of us life can be a great pleasure, but it can also allow for pent up emotion to occur, for any reason, generally personal and associated to emotional baggage. When this has happened to me I have found a good, intense scene with reasonably heavy cP to be something that can release this pent up emotion.
In the past (and present I guess) I have found that I get a most spectacular natural high after events such as judicials and so forth. That feeling is also accompanied by a feeling of release; that all that I have held on to has been let go of, leaving me feeling cleansed. I suppose the best way to think of it is the smell of the air after it has been raining, or cut grass. Both have a fresh, clean smell; the smell of a new beginning.
I had not, prior to visiting this gentleman talked about this subject on quite this level so I can only thank him for that. Does anyone else have this feeling? Does anyone get any other feelings post punishment that they wish to share?
