Sometimes I giggle when I hear someone saying a sub has no choices. Geez Louise, sometimes it feels like that’s all a sub has. Questions that need answers, and choices that need decisions all fall to the sub.
Some submissives feel once they’ve submitted there’s no other choices to be made but I’d argue the decision not to safeword is a one hell of a major choice. Submission to a Dominant or Master needs to be made on a moment to moment basis.
Maybe not consciously, but the sub is following their need to service. They are choosing to stay and follow instructions. They are exchanging their power and submitting.
NOT DECIDING IS A DECISION
This is true in life and BDSM. Sitting on the fence or refusing to decide equates to nonaction which means the decision is not to act.
The Longest Night is about a sub’s decision to take a chance. It’s about Benjamin not settling for something easy but for holding out for what he needs.
Exclusive Excerpt from The Longest Night by Z. Allora
He dropped to his knees and adjusted his position. When happy with his display, he settled in to wait.
The hardness of the carpeted floor kept him centered on his purpose— to please Foster. Time ticked by as Benjamin reveled in the knowledge that Foster told him to do something and he submitted to the demand.
Members of Entwined gave him a wide berth, but he could feel their eyes on him. Some must wonder who he waited on. Was Foster watching him? He straightened his spine a little more.
He glanced at the clock—7:01 and no Foster. Maybe he wasn’t a Dom who was into being exact about time.
Another check—7:07. Benjamin’s knees were beginning to ache. The pain turned him on.
Still no Foster—7:13. Had Foster decided he didn’t want to do this? Maybe Benjamin wasn’t pleasing enough? Should he go?
Every second seemed like an hour and every minute a day.
At 7:16, doubt ate at him. Where was Foster? What had Benjamin done wrong?
When 7:20 arrived, Benjamin decided he’d wait all fucking night if he had to. He’d be worthy of Foster. If Foster wanted to test him, make him suffer, embarrass him, whatever Foster wanted, Benjamin would do. He’d earn the right to go into the back room and bend over for Foster.
At 7:23, his cock decided to lengthen in anticipation of all the delicious things Foster might do to him… or might not.
In this scene, Benjamin makes a decision and waits for the Dominant to join him. He’s confused and upset but it is his decision to submit to the situation.
There’s power in personal agency. Benjamin decided to remain on his knees. Once he settles into his choice, he accepts everything that means.
Always seek your own truth.

The holiday season is lonely for construction worker Benjamin Morgan, a big muscular guy who just wants to submit, obey, and serve. But the men he’s attracted to usually don’t have a dominant bone in their bodies. He’s done seeking his BDSM dreams with someone who isn’t interested in putting him in his rightful place—on his knees at their feet.
When a friend sets up a meeting with Foster Ridgeway at the BDSM club, Entwined, Benjamin has his doubts. Of course he is attracted to bookish Foster, who works for the same construction company, but how will someone so small and delicate-looking master Benjamin? But when Foster–the tiny temple of dominance wielding a crop—heads toward Benjamin, he might get what he’s always wanted, just in time for Solstice.
