My main sub accompanied me to a new FemDom BDSM event. He was so nervous, bless him, that I decided to give him something to truly be terrified with to make the rest of the event seem pretty tame. Although he has a phobia of needles, and cock torture, he lay on the medical bench shaking yet permitting me to perform a small amount of needle work on him.
While I only threaded a few needles into his shaft, it was more than enough to calm him for the rest of the event, and open up more to the other Doms and subs attending.
He is a very brave subling indeed, and I am rather proud of him, although next time I aim to use a few more.
