In theory I had control, but in reality I don't, Mr Maus's not been into it lately, his chastity equals my chastity and if he's not into it then I too go unattended. The last dice-designated day came and went with nothing. Sad face.
The stars of his body, mind and motivation must all be aligned and they are not and for good reasons. December we had sex once. January we had sex once (January isn't over but it is due to schedules and obligations). I honestly have a different expectation than a once a month hostile take over of his cock. Consequently my feelings are pretty bent out f shape. I empathize with all of the reasons the stars are not aligned so I don't push. Although he said he wanted me to be in control so I tried exerting myself and managed to trigger some old deep shit that caused an emotional retreat. At the time I was mad at him and then mad at myself for being mad at him, and it's gone downhill from there. I asked him then if he wanted to stop wearing the chastity device, he said no and the reason he gave had absolutely nothing to do with me or our relationship. That stung a little. I foolishly started poking around about other related topics and got negative or neutral responses. That's my own damn fault I suppose. Having thought about it for a bit I concluded that the symbol of my key has become meaningless to our relationship, his chastity no longer has anything to do with our sexual interactions. It's taken me a week to mull this over but I decided to give the key back stating that since I'm not permitted to have any participation in the decision process associated with our chastity, my having a key is pointless. And with most other aspects of his life out of his control, if I have the power
to give him back one piece of it I will. I'm probably misunderstanding something here but I'm hoping by doing so I'm lending
to his putting his life back together. I have always wanted to be a soft place to land, not a pain in the ass. My having the key and having expectation of control in the bedroom - which are being resisted makes me a pain in the ass. Giving the key back gives me the distance I need from intimacy and sexuality to back off and give him the space he clearly needs. I really really don't want to do this but I will do so in an effort to be supportive.
I feel horrid. I honestly can't stop crying. Giving the key back feels like an admission that I'm not good enough, that I don't have the right gearing for this coupling. It feels like I am relinquishing the option to have sex with him ever again. It feels like we're going back to being just friends. It feels like if there ever was one there is no future together. It feels like he has slowly broken up with me and I just got the message and acknowledged it. Or worse that I just broke up with him. I have not. Giving the key back gives me the distance I need from him and sexuality to back off and give him the space he clearly needs. I really really don't want to do this but I will in an effort to be supportive.
My reaction my own actions is to run off and hide in a hole. I keep reminding myself to be patient, be supportive and stay in it but today that just seems stupid. Delusional. Whether that's reasonable or not doesn't even matter, it's how I feel.
