A few weeks ago, I did a YouTube video talking about the "value" of paper money. Obviously, this is not typical for the context of financial domination. While some dommes utilize the principles I am about to outline, I doubt that many dommes -- or subs -- have considered the implications of the practice itself.
Despite the fact that there have been a few copycats of my particular methods, it's clear that none of them have actually grasped what it is that I am conveying through my presence regarding the value of money and the implications of cash exchange as a materialization of power in a dynamic.
So here I am....
Money is a cultural abstract.
In the next several generations, it is entirely conceivable that paper money will disappear. The reason is that it is a stand-in for value. It has no intrinsic value other than what we have agreed upon collectively. That much is pretty straightforward: A piece of paper is worth basically nothing.
If we print $100 on it, and speak the same 'language' (if you will) then the possession of the bill conveys the 'right to consume' on the order of magnitude of $100 of value in goods and/or services. When economies are working well, this is an efficient way of exchanging value.
Most recently, we have seen this concept pressed to its conceptual limits with the growing popularity of crypto-currencies. That is, value can now be exchanged between parties on an agreed upon "unit" outside of the traditional federal system, i.e. generation of cycles on a computer as is the case in Bitcoin.
You see, money as a means of value exchange is simply a matter of convenience. Technically, value can be exchanged between parties according to their agreed upon terms and conditions. We use cash because it is the most efficient way of noting the transfer of value in an exchange that we have available to us presently.
To put in the context of financial domination: You want to interact with me, my thoughts, my energy, I extract cash from you for the privilege. If you had not found that My presence was intrinsically compelling and valuable, you would not seek it. Therefore, the exchange of cash is a *natural* notation for the direction of value in the interaction.
Modern financial markets are behaviorally and structurally different to anything that was previously conceptualized. it is possible to accelerate the transfer of value between parties using technology as a means of encounter, transfer, and ledger.
Again, paper money itself has no intrinsic value other than the 'right to consume.' So, neither buyer nor seller requires knowledge of the cash's history, giving it a certain form of anonymity. But it also means that the provider of cash is, essentially, interchangeable with all other possible providers of cash as far as the seller is concerned. In the case of financial domination where the 'object' is sentient, i.e. the Mistress herself, She is able to control the terms of the exchange to suit her needs or whim.
As the practice of financial domination gains traction, and as practitioners gain more skill and subtlety it will become more common for the attention of females to come with a cost. The practice of findom will bleed out of the strict context of domination and submission and into a more mainstream application, as is the case with My own practice.
And, as we sit here today (perhaps in large part due to the underground economy) the demand for paper currency is outstripping the potential for that paper currency to be replaced by electronic central bank reserves. (Another argument for the rise of cryptocurrencies... but I digress).
Perhaps without consciously knowing it, financial domination has taken a place in the natural evolution of this landscape:
As a disruption to the status quo, and as a reconceptualization of capital itself, superior females have started to realize that if you have something that someone wants, you do not have to give it up unless you're satisfied with the terms of the exchange. (Of course, until this concept is well understood across the spectrum of females, there will continue to be a market flooded with cheap attention, sex, etc. That's a separate issue that I could discuss at length in a later post.)
For now, My point here is that to engage in financial domination is to PRACTICE the EXCHANGE of POWER and VALUE through the very most efficient terms provided for in this economic landscape. It is therefore the most ELEGANT form of psychological domination available to practitioners.
The Future of Financial Domination
The normalization of innovation into a society or sub-society (where said innovation becomes accepted as a norm) can happen at a gradual pace or through abrupt shocks.
My practice of financial domination does radically reimagine the use of capital in the context of domination and submission, sex and power itself.
Yes, findom practices vary widely as a function of understanding and tools available to practitioners. But My particular preference (and fetish) is for cash as a materialization of power exchange. I enjoy the use my superior intellect and sex appeal to create an efficient micro-market for capital.
That is, by the way, why I require tribute upfront in order to engage in an interaction at all: It cements the understanding of power dynamics in the interaction and creates a foundation from which a joint venture can be built. It is the "Pass Go" component of the interaction.
We have to remember that money is a human invention, and a human technology.
I have, in essence, capitalized my existence as a socially and intellectually superior female. To serve Me, is to serve not only Me as a domme, but also My purpose in society and the very concept of powerful femininity.
Personally, I enjoy the company of men who naturally enjoy supporting a dominant woman in her life and purpose, and who enjoy receiving her insight and presence as a result. I exercise this fetish in an intellectually respectable place, though I maintain extremely high standards for enterting My service. I do not trade on volume but quality, as it takes a very highly sophisticated man to relish this role.
Financial Domination is, in that respect, one of the most honorable methods of power exchange. A show of respect and homage for the presence of women. The future itself.
I am not available to discuss these concepts without financial consideration of the value of My time. Though i am happy to discuss most topics at great length with those who understand this basic dynamic.
