The active Domination is what gained her submission in the first place. It is what earned her trust and respect in how you Dominate and show yourself as a leader. It is what fills her needs as a submissive by having you be that Dominant she desires. Throughout the relationship you must continue to actively be Dominant with her. This is what she needs to feel from and with you. This is where she really feels her submission, which is what she needs. She needs to see and be reminded that you are that person she fell for, cares for, and the one she gave her submission.
Domination and this lifestyle is not about doing all the work on the front end so you can sit back and coast later. It’s not about just being able to always sit back and have someone serve you. If a Dominant doesn’t continue to fuel the submissive fire within his submissive, then that fire will begin to fade. Problems will arise if she doesn’t continue to have more fuel put on the fire, as the old fuel burns away. It is a constant effort to maintain any relationship, and one that has the aspects of Domination is no different just because there is some power exchange involved. Her submission is never to be taken for granted, and you must continue to earn it to keep it.
In an established relationship, there does not have to be a constant level of active overt Domination. Her submission has been earned, and that comes with a certain level of being able to Dominate just because of your role, or passively Dominating. Yet, there is a balance that must be maintained and kept to keep the relationship in order and on track. A balance between being able to use your Dominance based on what you already earned versus what you have to continue to earn. A Dominant, although maybe not as much as early on, has to keep actively Dominating his submissive to enable her to feel what she needs from you and keep that fire burning.
Don’t just sit back and expect your submissive to be at your beck and call with no effort on your part. Continue to physically Dominate her through the relationship. Continue to push and test her submission. Continue to show her where her place is with you. Continue to use and enjoy her. Continue to make her submit to you and give her no other option. Or at least do this enough to maintain the balance of the relationship. After all, it’s who you both are and what you both need from each other. Any relationship takes work, and this is no exception. Yet the rewards an be great and help you keep a strong, lasting, and close relationship that fulfills the needs of you both.
