Thoughts on Co-Topping vs Stewardship

Last night at TES some interesting ideas were brought up. Laine‘s talk was really about Service Archetypes in a very structures MS type relationship. That’s not the kind of dynamic I’m into, but one of the archetypes she spoke about was the “steward” or “majordomo” i.e. A servant who rules over the other servants when the master commands and perhaps when the master isn’t there.

This struck a chord with me because although I can’t really see myself in a service role, I often think the ideal for me (at least in a scene with group larger than three) would be sort of an assistant or second in command to a more experienced top.

Also the line between co-topping and actually bottoming to the lead top turns me on for some reason.

I can imagine being the lab assistant to a mad scientist. A person doing unspeakable things and I am unflappably watching and handing them implements (while impeccably dressed.)

Perhaps the snappily dressed valet to devilish rogue. Like Azolan, Valmont’s manservant in Les Liaisons Dangereuses.

I will keep my eyes open for a co-topping class. I heard Lolita and Boymeat gave one and that sounds like it was awesome.

Maybe I will even talk to some people I know about playing this out. We will see.

  1. this is really interesting! i like the idea of taking care of others while ultimately being a sort of protege to a great big dom top. in a group sort of setting. i also like the idea of showing off one submissive to a group of underlings who are under me and the great big dom top. kind of circusy or county fair like! like the big top dom says, step right up and see the submissive have forced orgasms, folks, and then i’m the one who gives the forced orgasms. i don’t know. i’m rambling. but this is a neat idea! hope you write more about it.

  3. My previous partner filled this role for me several times over the course of our relationship. Sometimes, he was the photographer while I was topping somebody, other times, he was my able-bodied assistant – but although we switched, the vast majority of times we played with other people, I was indisputably in charge. All I can say is, an extra pair of hands can be incredibly useful.
