In real life, he tells me, he is a 25 year veteran of the BDSM lifestyle so, naturally, he gravitated toward me in my distress.
I couldn't figure out how to turn myself around so that I could see what I looked like. I have found no mirrors in the program and was dying to know what kind of impression I was making.
