SAMPLE LIMITS CHECKLIST


This checklist can be filled out by a sub and provided to their Dom/Top before playing with
them. This will provide a quick "head-start" to identifying limits, negotiating and finding
common ground for play. Dominants may wish to work through the checklist, to get a better
handle on their specific interests. Switches should go through the checklist twice; one persons
Dom and sub interests may be very different.

For each item, you need to provide two answers:

1. Experience
Have you had real time experience with the activity?
Indicate YES or NO next to each item. Write N/A if it does not apply to your gender.

2. Willingness
Are you willing/open to try an activity?
For each item, indicate the degree to which you are willing to try that particular activity by rating
it on a scale of NO or 0-5 (see rating scale below).
If you write "no", it means you will not do that item under any circumstance (a hard limit). There
is nothing wrong with indicating 'no' on an item. However, if you write 'no' next to every item,
you should probably find another interest to pursue.... like knitting or basket weaving. *grin*
If you do not understand what an activity is, mark that item with a "?".
Mark with an asterisk (*) those items which you are willing to do only with your current sex
partner(s), but not with casual play partners
Rating Scale

Utterly no desire to do that activity and dont like doing it (in fact, may
loath it) and ordinarily would object to doing it, but you would permit the
Dominant to do it if they really wanted it (sometimes called a soft limit)

Dont want to do or like to do this activity, but wouldnt object it if was


asked of you

Willing to do this activity, but it has no special appeal for you

Usually like doing this activity, at least on an irregular/occasional basis

You like doing this activity and would like to experience it on a regular
basis

Is a wild turn-on for you and you would like it as often as possible

Note any additional information or nuances which might be important for your Dom to know in
the comments section.
There is intentionally some overlap between categories. Unless otherwise stated, the sub is the
recipient/target of the activity

Excerpt
Copyright 2014 Lauren Hawkeye
Logan felt a wicked surge of excitement as the small Mistress planted herself in front of
him, hands on her hips. Very sexy hips, he noted yet again, ones that flowed into a slender waist
and the curves of full breasts. Hed felt a deep sense of satisfaction to find that she appeared
every bit as interested in him as he was in her.
Something in him again warned him to find a different partner for the evening, one who
would be satisfied with administering a flogging, then sharing hard, impersonal sex.
Every other part of him wanted the woman currently standing in front of him, though he
knew somehow that she was going to push him further than he was comfortable. Just having met
her had thinned the barriers he always kept in place.
He hadnt been in the club for very long, but he was already feeling the pain from being
trapped in the crush of people. A scary looking Mistressor Master, he wasnt quite surehad
started bearing down on him at the same time as the tasty treat in front of him, and hed felt as if
the walls had been closing in on him, stealing away his air.
But it was different with this one
An experienced submissive, he could tell that she was a fairly new Mistress. The nerves
were there, in her eyes, around the corners of her mouth. Still, despite the sweet features of her
face, dominance seemed to seep out of her very pores, an exotic perfume that caught his attention
like a dog with a steak.
And then there was that strange pull between them, the one that had snapped into place
the second his arms had wrapped around her outside. The one that made every other dominant
woman in the room seem dull and unappealing.

It was an irresistible combination for a man who ran the show everywhere besides the
bedroom.
And he couldnt ignore the fact that, since shed introduced herself and glared at him with
that bitchy expression that made his cock hard, hed found it a little easier to breathe.
Whats the problem, sweetheart? He grinned down at her, his expression deliberately
cocky. He needed to keep his defenses up from the start around this one, to keep her from
sneaking too far into his psyche.
He waited to see if she would dismiss him immediately for his rudeness.
She arched an eyebrow at his term but didnt comment on it, which left him mildly
disappointed. Instead she nodded at his feet, looking like nothing so much a wet dream of a stern
schoolteacher.
Bottoms go barefoot in Veritas, sub. Remove the boots.
Her voice was whiskey smooth with an undercurrent of sin, at odds with the girl-nextdoor face. Logan found himself wanting to fall to his knees and obey, to please her, and despite
how much he wanted her, the notion didnt sit well with him.
A mistress had to work much harder than saying a few words and looking pretty to earn
that kind of response from him.
Hed felt the punch of attraction when their eyes had first met, but now he was wary.
What kind of hold did she have on him already, to make him want so badly to please her?
Shaken by the notion, he grinned insolently and shook his head. Make me, baby.
Logan watched as heat flickered in her eyes which, upon closer inspection, were stormy
grey rather than the expected blue.

He watched as she shrugged one shoulder, a simple gesture that was nevertheless full of
innate grace.
Well do it the hard way, then. So caught up in the sirens song of her voice, Logan
was caught off guard when the little minx kicked her leg up with the smooth flexibility of a
trained dancer and pressed her sharp stiletto heel against the thin denim of his crotch.
He froze when the perfectly positioned boot heel dug into the tender sac of his testicles,
just enough to catch his attention.
No need to get nasty, sweetheart. Though he wasnt overly concerned that she was one
of those mistresses who took joy in cock and ball torture, he was still uncomfortable enough
from the feelings coursing through him to be a smartass.
Take off your boots. Damn her, she looked completely calm and in control. Like she
knew he would do as she said, simply because she had said it.
Their little standoff had drawn an audience, too, and the press of bodies around them
made his throat constrict with the beginnings of claustrophobia.
A hundred bucks on the little blonde.
Logan flicked his eyes around the gathered crowd to find the speaker and glowered when
he saw that it was Luca, the only acquaintance he had at In Vino Veritas. He would have snarled
if Mistress S hadnt chosen that moment to dig that stiletto in just a bit harder.
I warned you. She shrugged and smiled at him, and the smile made Logans entire
body clench with pure, undiluted need. She leaned forward, a calculated move, he knew, but still
he found his attention caught on the creamy swells of her breasts, offered up as they were in the
almost indecently low neckline of her black lace corset.
He wanted to get his hands on those breasts more than he wanted his next breath.

His attention was still caught on them when she lowered her leg, and he grinned as he
hoped, prayed, that she would lean forward a bit more, just enough for him to see a hint of nipple
that he knew would be rosy pink.
Id still be happy to give you the ride of your life Logans words were cut off when
the slender woman whirled behind him, her movements precise and controlled. He felt the sharp
toes of her boots dig into the backs of his knees, and then he landed on his knees on the floor, his
breath leaving his lungs in one uncomfortable jolt.
What the He threw his hands out in front of him to protect his face when she pushed
him down further and straddled his hips backwards. Despite the surprise and the uncomfortable
position, his cock pushed against the thin denim of his jeans as his body registered the heat of her
naked legs, pressing tightly into his torso.
Her ass was sweetly rounded and close enough to touch. Her skirt had ridden up when
she moved, and he caught a hint of the sexy panties she wore beneath.
With firm hands, Mistress S tugged off one of his well-worn cowboy boots, and then the
other. His socks followed. Standing, she caught his eye as she very deliberately stuffed a sock
inside each boot, then handed the pair off to Luca, to tuck out of reach behind the bar, he
assumed.
Whats your name? She asked, her voice steady, certain he would answer... and he did,
though he hadnt intended to.
Logan. He could hear the wariness in his own voice, and rightly sothis woman was
nothing like hed expected.
Well, then. Logan. Her words were stern. I told you. Subs go barefoot here.
Logan felt twin desires pulling inside of him. He wanted to apologize, to earn her favor.

He also wanted to wipe that smug smile off of her face. Shed won this roundand he
hadnt seen it coming, so points for her.
But he wasnt tamed that easily.
You going to punish me now, baby? He ran his tongue over his lips, deliberately
provoking her. He knew what would happen now, and he was looking forward to it.
She would take him to a private room, or to one of the many pieces of equipment set up
around the massive play area of Veritas. She would try to dig deeper, and he would deflect. She
would flog him, and he would be able to lose himself in the pain.
They would fuck, and then they would go their own ways. Hed head back to Montana
until his needs could no longer be assuaged with his imagination and his own hand.
The fact that he didnt care for the idea of leaving her was just a signal that he needed to
do exactly that. She looked like she could draw out all of his secrets, and that just wasnt going
to happen.
Still, he thought he just might die if he didnt get a taste of that creamy flesh spilling out
over the top of her corset.
Yes, Mistress S replied, her face calm, though those grey eyes of hers reflected more
than a hint of the turmoil that he was feeling himself. I am.
Then the woman did something Logan never could have seen coming.
She turned on her slender stiletto heel and walked away.
