Brat in training. I guess that’s me.
When Sir and I were first getting to know each other, he told me he likes bratty submissives. He enjoys the challenge they pose to his Dominance. A sub who simply obeys all the time is rather boring to him.
He informed me in those early days that he saw a brat inside me, one just dying to be let out. My protest was automatic. I most certainly was not! I was proud of the fact that I was not a brat. Cheeky, yes. Sassy at times, ok. But a brat? Definitely not! That was like a bad word once upon a time.
But then I found myself with a Dom who was actively encouraging me to be bratty. It’s been something I’ve had to wrap my brain around… first, that perhaps he is right and I do have bratty tendencies; second, that it’s ok to give in to those tendencies from time to time.
Sir said he recognized the brat in me early on. He explained to me that he was going to encourage it and that he would not punish me for it until I had a chance to explore it for myself. But I was warned that there would come a time when I would have to consider whether the bratty idea floating in my head was worth the consquence of acting on it.
I wasn’t sure, and still question, whether what he sees in me is correct, that I am a real brat. I mean, I’m not even sure what a “real brat” is. (Anyone care to explain it to me, from your perspective?)
I’ve been game to explore it. And I have quite enjoyed some of my antics. But I still don’t know if my behaviour is that of a brat or not. I’m hoping you all can help me out here. Would you consider the following to be bratty, or just sassy/cheeky?
• Pretending I’m the one in charge. This takes various forms, yet it’s clear I’m teasing and not actually trying to gain control. (He is quite quick to put me back in place.)
• Saying no when I’m told to do something, in a defiant “make me” kind of tone. This includes refusing to open my legs when he wants to touch his pussy. (I admit, I love it when forces them open!)
• Sticking out my tongue.
• Biting him.
If these are indeed the behaviours of a real brat, then I feel like the training wheels can come off and I’m ready to be held more accountable for my bratty actions. If they aren’t, then I think I need more training, to learn more about what a brat really is…. maybe take on a bratty mentor, someone who can guide me… That sounds fun! Lol
If anyone has any ideas for how to dial up the brat, I’m all ears! I’m ready to show him just how bratty I can be.
