Months ago I was accused by a female submissive of being “materialistic” because I put a request out for a new pair of Christian Louboutin shoes. A submissive purchased and sent them for which I was very grateful. I still correspond and talk with him long after he bought them. He endures much difficulty with a parent needing extensive home care and supervision.
The shoes were nearly $1000.
I wear them, frequently send him videos wearing them and he derives much pleasure in seeing them. I also believe I have a responsibility to look my best for those paying money to serve me.
So I ask this.
Was it excessive and materialistic to articulate my request, receive and appreciate them and then use the shoes to maintain my image and persona?
