|Comment||Thank you Ben, I can't anticipate his response but will be humble in my approach and make clear verbally the message I am trying to send with this gift. He has always welcomed my mind and suggestions of course the difference here is he asked and I didn't suggest he listen. I will have to sleep on this. Thank you again for your input and for your time in answering mine and others questions. You make the BDSM community a better place. May we all continue to grow and learn.|
