This written contract is an excerpt from Darling Discovered: A True Story of Submission. It recounts the year my husband and I began exploring Power Exchange both inside and outside of the bedroom. Feel free to use this contract as a template for what will or will not work for your relationship. I also provide our Master/slave contract and our most recent contract to help you see how one dynamic has evolved over time.

24/7 Dominant/submissive Contract

I, Chloe Donnovan, with a free mind and open heart, request Leo Donnovan to accept the submission of my will unto him. I ask that, as my Dominant, Leo Donnovan, take me into his care and guidance and encourage growth together in love, trust, and mutual respect. It is my desire as a submissive to satisfy his needs and desires whenever possible in hopes that I will be found pleasing to him. To do so, I offer him the use of my body, abilities, and purpose.

Further, I ask that, as my Dominant, he will accept the responsibility of using my body for the fulfillment and enhancement of our sexual, spiritual, emotional, and intellectual needs. In order to achieve this, he has unrestricted use of my body at any time, any place, and in front of anyone as he determines appropriate.

As a Dominant, Mr. Donnovan may bestow upon me any symbol of ownership, including a collar and any other future marks or tokens he may wish to bestow upon me. Symbols of ownership are to be a visible reminder of status and will be worn with pride.

Section Three: Submissive’s pledge

I will do my best to serve my Mister. I will work hard to correct any insecurities or inhibitions that interfere with my capability to serve you. I will grow as a person. I will maintain honest and open communication. I will reveal my thoughts, feelings, and desires without fear of judgment or embarrassment. I will bring you any wants and perceived needs of mine. I will be the very best mother and homemaker possible. I will work to repair our marriage. I will not hold past mistakes against you. I will do what I can to try and trust again.

My surrender as a submissive is done with the knowledge that nothing asked of me will demean me as a person and in no way diminish my responsibilities toward making the utmost use of my potential. In recognition of my family obligations, I know nothing will be required of me that will damage or harm my child or interfere with my duties as a mother and wife.

This I, Chloe Donnovan, do entreat with lucidity and the realization of what this means, both stated and implied, in the conviction that this offer will be understood in the spirit of faith, caring, esteem, devotion, and the love in which it is given.

Should either of us find that this agreement does not adequately serve our aspirations, find this commitment too burdensome, or for any other reason wish to cancel, Mr. or Mrs. Donnovan may do so by verbal notification to the other in keeping with the consensual nature of this contract. We both understand that cancellation means a cessation of the power exchange dynamic indicated and implied within this agreement, not a termination of the relationship as friends, lovers, and spouses.

Upon cancellation, each of us agrees to offer the other their reasons and openly assess the new needs and situation. This agreement shall serve as the basis for extending our relationship, and we are committed to the spirit of loving and consensual Dominance and submission to further self-awareness and exploration, promote health and happiness, and improve both lives.
