On the event of sadomasochism as an applied discipline: Remember, hold arms and hands flat across the bed. Do not look at him when he pulls the thick leather belt from his waist. This is an expression of challenge and aggression. Wait until he begins before you look at him or try to cover your skin. Looking and covering will make him more angry and the lashes will come faster and make the stinging more constant, numbing. Slow hard lashes hurt more on raw skin than fast hard lashes. This is the proper craft of a submissive. Stuff of artists.

A study of sadomasochism in binary oppositions:

• Leather belt = ♂;

Buttocks & vagina = ♀;

♂ / ♀;

Leather belt / buttocks & vagina;

Discipline / disobedience;

Pain / acquiescence of pain;

Teacher / student;

Good / bad; ♂ = leather belt,

• Discipline, pain, teacher, good; ♀ = buttocks & vagina, disobedience, acquiescence of pain,

student, bad.

You read somewhere that Cynthia Chase is a friend of Derrida and is the half-sister of Chevy Chase. You wonder if Chevy Chase might make a good dad. People say he’s a dick but you like his sarcasm. You send a letter to Chevy Chase because maybe he will read your letter on Weekend Update. everyone Chevy Chase read your letter on Weekend Update and his half-sister is going to teach you about Derrida and you’ll have wonderful discourses and the whole Chase family will adopt you and Chevy Chase will teach you to write sarcastic jokes because you jokes aren’t funny. They make people sad.
