I love it when two wonderful words meld together. The flat straps of darkened steel wrap the victim's face, but are wide enough for use of eyes, nose, orafice...It's beautiful and cruel. The head cage sits on my desk now as I write and I can't help but also think: this is the ultimate metaphor for the domination/submission role engagement. As serious players, we seek those who are able to lock us in our head cage, those who let us roam freely in a part of our persona that we need/want to dwell in, whether it be Top, Domina, Seductress, Governess, Teacher, Nurturing Guide or Bottom, Slave, Victim, Slut, Adoring Pet. When we are allowed to enter our chosen cage, we find freedom.
