To make the upcoming tennis match more fun, we decided to have the males shave their heads to match My tennis partner. She’s a shaved-head Domina—therefore, the males will be too. Video will come soon!
Myself, and a good friend and popular Domina, will be having a tennis match against two cross-dressing, wig-wearing Female-wannabee males. We are going to film the event. Catch is: they will be wearing high heels, wigs, etc. — the whole nine yards. Look out for the video!
“If I look at the mass I will never act.”
A resolution on the 1915 Armenian Genocide was recently introduced in Congress by Representatives Dave Trott, and Adam Schiff. It’s legislation to officially recognize genocide. It got me thinking about why many of us go numb and fail to take action in the face of large scale massacres and abuses.
Do you recall the horrifying image of a child refugee who drowned while trying to escape his war-torn country? The image brought the world to tears. Yet, just twenty-four hours later, similar refugee images had circulated the internet but failed to elicit equal outrage. The difference was in the number of victims. Why did the image of one victim engender more sympathy than images depicting the same tragedy with more victims?
The same psychological tendency happened with the story of Cecil the Lion. The public was outraged by the death of Cecil, the lion killed for sport by a dentist. Meanwhile, hundreds of animals— on a much larger scale, are killed for sport yearly, and most fail to engender the same level of visceral outcry.
The quote by Joseph Stalin: “One death is a tragedy; a million deaths is a statistic.” is the perfect apropos for this psychological phenomena called compassion fade.
Why is this? Why does our sympathy decline, and our capacity for compassion and our desire to help fade when the number of victims rise? Why does one death or one example of abuse leave us more upset than genocide and other urgent, global issues such as climate change?
The answers lie in the numbers; in something termed “arithmetic of compassion” by Zbigniew Herbert.
A study on “compassion fade”, conducted by Paul Slovic, showed that our compassion for victims decline as the number of victims rise. The emotion areas of our brains will deactivate, or go “numb” in response to higher number of victims or larger scale problems.
The study found 3 psychological mechanisms behind arithmetic of compassion:
1. Psych numbing: our sympathy for victims fades if the number of victims is higher than one: compassion fade.
2. Prominence effect: placing more value on issues in the near-term, e.g., current affairs, and less value on issues that seem too remote and abstract, e.g., climate change.
3. Pseudo-inefficacy: we lose our desire to help even just one victim when we’re consumed by how many others we can’t help. Helping one seems futile and less desirable when there are many more we can’t help.
Amazing there’s a science behind why our capacity for compassion fades the greater the number of victims.

“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.”
From time to time, I share with you certain letters we receive. Here’s one. I’ll be elaborating more inside the private journal as I have an upcoming “slave interview” with him. I will film this interview as I have the others. Look out for the video coming soon.
My experience meeting you:
I will say that I have been following Saharah Eve for a number of years as an acolyte. I recently made contact with her on Night Flirt to see about meeting her as part of my path to slavery to her (to see if this was even obtainable).
I sent a letter of introduction (an essay of sorts) that spoke to my idea of how i viewed submission and desire to follow that into the ultimate paradise….slavery. After talking with Saharah Eve on the phone (emails, sending photos and essay) We/we agreed to meet for a dinner and light drinks.
The moment i saw her walk up and greet me with a hug was unbelievable…we seemed to start talking almost immediately…she asked about my background and some on how i veiwed myself…..I have a PhD and am a geek at heart.
Her personality, Her demeanor, Her beauty, all combined with her confidence.. that unspoken “knowing” of Her Superiority..and an immediate consensual sense of my place ….beneath Her.
She was soft spoken, very engaging, enthusiastic about learning new things, optimistic, and most of all her contentment, with Her position of power…ruling over those beneath Her….males….as it should be.
I am not sure that i have ever met someone that conveyed without saying a word such power in such a wonderful person ever before.
After hearing her speak for a few minutes i realized that i was in the presence of greatness.
Her attitude and the confidence of her personality confirmed my desire to meet and work my way to becoming her slave. The way She is makes you want to serve Her, obey Her, make her smile, She does this all with just Her Persona – Presence.
