|23 Feb 10 More on the O&P Open meeting on 6th March|
|Today I updated the thread about the O&P meeting in Manchester on the 6th of March, with a photograph to help find the venue and some directions. Belasarius has now also started a thread with suggestions for discussion topics for the open round table part of the afternoon. Finally mia has begun a thread about names for this type of meeting: not just a munch but not as formal sounding as "meeting"|

|5 Feb 10 IE and O&P|
|I started writing about Internal Enslavement ("IE") in 1999, first calling it "Internal Slave Development" and then adopting the more accurate "Internal Enslavement" name in August of 2000. Now that most of my writing efforts are going into O&P (Ownership & Possession), this is a good time to clarify how IE fits into this new framework. [more...]|
|4 Feb 10 Carpetting your world?|
|I'm reading Raven and Joshua's questions and answers book, and there's a great line in a section about control: "I can't carpet the world, but I've put down a lot of throw rugs." [more...]|
|26 Jan 10 Transferability thread on IC|
|New thread on the O&P group on IC: "I think it's taken for granted that the best things about dominants and owners tend to be transferable from one relationship to another: skills, experience, self-awareness and self-acceptance of one's desires and right to receive service etc. However, what about the submissives' side of things?"|

|5 Jan 10 "The Curious Human Phenomenon" by Peter Masters|
|A couple of years ago I reviewed Peter Masters' previous title, "The Control Book", and "The Curious Human Phenomenon" is very much in the same vein. It doesn't try to teach you BDSM techniques, but instead tries to explain some of the reasons behind elements of BDSM. Masters summarises this by saying BDSM has an "abundance of 'how'" but a "scarcity of 'why'". [more...]|
|2 Jan 10 O&P Wiki|
|The Wiki on TSR acquired many good articles about D/s and M/s subjects in 2007 and 2008, but had only a handful of updates during 2009. It's now been rebranded as the O&P Wiki to give it more focus, and it appears on the O&P website itself now too. In the last week, I've updated a great many of the articles to make it more consistent, and include more O&P topics and links to O&P blog posts.|
Possession. Ownership. Consent. Responsibility. Respect. House. Service. Dignity. Authenticity. Rituals.
O&P (Ownership & Possession) is a new structure built from familiar D/s and M/s concepts, defined by the O&P Manifesto.
There is an O&P discussion group on Fetlife.
The O&P Wiki contains articles about O&P and related D/s, M/s, and BDSM topics.
