In my last post I shared that I had a delightful conversation with the hostess of the inn we stayed in last Sunday night. While Barry was packing things up and loading the car, she sat down at the table and we talked for almost an hour. She was curious about the type of relationship that Barry and I have, and I was curious about she and her husband. It seems that she and Robert have a complete female led relationship in which she is the head of the household in all regards. She manages the inn and Robert does most of the work. He prepares breakfast each morning for the guests and after cleaning up the kitchen he takes care of cleaning the five rooms. She also keeps him in a chastity device and panties most of the time and has taken complete control of when and how he receives sexual pleasure. She is convinced that since she has taken complete charge of Robert, he has become a much kinder and gentler husband. She also does not hesitate to use corporal punishment whenever necessary to keep him well behaved. I was curious how she could do that due to having strangers in the house most nights. She explained that most guests leave by 10 AM in the morning and new guests seldom arrive until at least 2 PM. When a punishment is needed, it is frequently administered during that time period except when the inn is vacant. She also explained that she also frequently uses a cane, which is a very quiet implement. The only problem with cane is that it is difficult for Robert to remain quiet. Initially, she would gag him whenever the cane was used, but she has slowly trained him to take it quietly. Before we ended our conversation, she invited Robert to our table from the kitchen and prompted him to tell me about their relationship. His summary confirmed what Margaret had told me.
I was quite intrigued by the complete control she exhibits over Robert and what a gentle, pleasant person he is. When I commented about that, Margaret explained that he wasn't always as loving and kind. However, that changed once she took charge of their relationship and him. She strongly encouraged me to take more control of all aspects of Barry's and my relationship. She was confident that I would see a dramatic change in Barry's general demeanor and an increase in his desire and actions to please me in all ways. She also suggested that based upon what I told her about Barry's desire to be spanked and his acceptance of me controlling much of our sex life, it is very likely that Barry really desires to have a woman control more aspects of his life and that he will quickly embrace it.
As we drove home that morning, I couldn't help but playing my conversation with Margaret over in my head many times. I was struck by how similar it seems to what several of you readers have shared in comments to me about HOH and FLRs. That night over dinner, I shared much of the conversation I had with Margaret with Barry and told him that I was thinking about taking full control of all aspects of our relationship and household. When he asked me what that meant, I told him I wasn't quite sure, but that I was going to give it significant thought and we would talk more.
Barry didn't seem to object to the idea of me being the HOH, but since we haven't talked in more detail about what it would mean to him, I'm not sure he fully comprehends the extent of what I'm talking about. I have been giving it a lot of thought the past week and jotting down a number of specific changes I would implement if I decide to do this. This feels like a really major change and is not something I am taking lightly. The changes we have already made in our relationship are also huge, but they have occurred fairly gradually, so they didn't feel so dramatic at the time.
I suspect we'll be talking in the next few days ....
