A Domme in St. Louis has declared US Femdom Day as July 24, and is asking for other countries to declare their date. For more info on the St Louis event: http://www.dadungeon.com/FemDomDay.shtml

First, I do really like the idea of all the various Female Dominance groups across the country and around the world agreeing to host similiar events in their areas on a specific date next year. I've confirmed that the date will be 7/24 every year, in order to honor the depth & devotion of 24/7 relationships.
Secondly, a submissive on the list asked the Mistresses for help in selecting a symbol for submissives to wear 24/7 on that day in order to show their submissiveness and reflect their desire to serve an agreeable Mistress. His rather yummy idea was for all the submissives to go to a bookstore or coffee shop where the Mistresses could then easily identify them based on the symbol, and select from them if they so desired. (Why do I see that becoming a favorite new fantasy for many of you? ;-) )
I'd like to take that idea to an international scope and suggest a symbol for all uncollared* subs everywhere to wear on July 24, 2010, and to celebrate it each year to come. Even if there were actually no Mistresses around, they would still be going about their day wondering if anyone would notice and would know what it was. I love the thought of so many subs walking around all day in nervous compliance... some hiding it a bit, others eagerly showing it off... wondering... waiting... hoping...
It needs to be something subtle, but symbolic.
My thought... My Assignment, even... is for all subs to wear a rubber band around their left wrist all day on July 24: a vanilla item, a bit unusual, but easily explained, yet very symbolic of the collars, restraints, chasity devices and/or cock rings that they might one day hope to wear for their Mistresses.
*Collared subs would need to ask permission to join in, and would probably need to wear their collar or other symbol of ownership. However, we could also have them do special things with their band, such as:
- Wear a rubber band, or a special wrist bracelet, made in our house color.
- "Twap" their wrist with it if they think of a certain thing, or at certain times, etc.
If you like this idea, help spread the word by sharing this link:
I'll update this post as needed. I'd also love to hear from all the subs who are joining in.
Looking forward to July 24!
And, yes, this is just the sort of thing that I love to do in my training assignments, except that you boys would probably be wearing it around your cocks! ;-)
PS - I love the suggestion of pink for sissies, and, of course, purple ones for subs who would like to honor me with their bands. I now have one of the Office Max has Rubber Band Balls with Pink, Purple & White bands. I really like the purple color, and they fit my wrist nicely. The pink ones seemed a bit tighter. (My wrists are a bit big for a woman, but I'm not sure how they compare to a man's.)
If subs within the US would like to PayPal me at least $1.50 for shipping, handling & Paypal fees, and their mailing address, I can have my assistant send one to you. (We'd need to check on international rates.) Specify pink (CD/pantyboy/sissy), purple (in Honor of Me) or virginal white. ;-) I'm more likely to include a personal note if you add a tribute, but it's certainly not required.
For those in Australia, Smiggle has balls of colored rubber bands in single colors, including all purple, pink or even black. Briefly borrowing from the Hanky Code, the black ones would be great for masochists. And, yes, I am aware that I used left instead of right for bottoms/submissives. Quite frankly, I've always felt that the code was backwards. In most people, your left side is your receptive side, and your right side is your sending/doing side. Hmmm... I wonder if the originator of the Hanky Code was left handed.
