To stake one’s claim is different than adopting an animal. Although a submissive is associated with a dog in these relationships, there are significant differences between humans and dogs to show loyalty.
Owning an asset does not mean you are to mistreat it. It does not mean you restrict eveything in the world. It does not give you a right to tell them a lie or trick them. It does not mean you can forget that they also have families and social lives.
I stated above what “to stake one’s claim” is not, you can augment the variations.
Well then, what is to stake one’s claim? What is BDSM? What is DDLG? I also tell you that?
