When you have an agreement agreed upon by multiple parties. There are always consequences for actions if lines are crossed. There are hard lines about what can be said or done and what is not allowed.
If lines are crossed and actions happen to a sub the the sub has to report it to the dom otherwise it’s a break in trust between the dom and sub.
It can suck if you become close with someone and they break the rules. If you become closer to them then it means they have the chance of hurting you more by breaking the rules. This life style is about respect if you can’t respect someone enough to follow the rules then you don’t need to be part of it.
