Financial Domination Support Group


Hi Guys, welcome to my journal.

I’m an ex money slave, who had a severe addiction to financial domination.  I created this site to help other guys learn how to overcome their addiction, and to warn anyone interested in 'trying out' this extremely dangerous fetish of the dangers it holds.  Now, I know this journal is quite controversial, and will likely attract some negative attention from both financial dommes, and financial slaves who are so deeply entrenched in their addiction they are beyond help.  If this is you, please, click the back button on your browser.  This site isn’t for you - it’s for financial slaves who are struggling to get over their addiction and who really want to change, and start living and enjoying their lives without the burden of financial slavery holding them back.

Financial slavery is quite complex, and unfortunately is a very rare and undocumented addiction, so there is very little support and advice available. I’m no psychologist, but I aim to provide some pointers here to help guys get back on track and start living their life for themselves, without sacrificing it for their Dommes.  The advice I provide here is just that - advice.   Everything I mention here has been tried and tested by myself, but please understand that any actions you take from reading this site are your responsibility.


Financial slavery is a psychological addiction, with characteristics similar to other major addictions, such as porn addiction and gambling addiction. It also has aspects of relationship co-dependence.  As such it is rather difficult to solve, however I do provide some information in this site to help overcome these issues. Rest assured, this challenge CAN BE SOLVED. It just requires determination, will power, self-discipline and a bit of work.  This is a challenge.  Once you succeed and get out of this addiction, you will be a much stronger, wiser and more self-disciplined individual.


The Dangers of Financial domination

The dangers and consequences of financial domination are not just financial, they include many other areas including social, interpersonal and your own health and wellbeing:

  • Lack of money / poverty
  • Inability to appreciate sexual intercourse or reach orgasm without fantasizing about submitting financially to ones Domme (development of a fetish)
  • Loneliness and social issues
  • Guilt and 'secrets'
  • Loss of job
  • Divorce
  • Bankruptcy
  • Valuable time wasted
  • Decreased academic/job performance
  • Addiction
  • Assaulted self-esteem
  • Depression and unhappiness
  • Poor, unhealthy lifestyle
  • A wasted life

Offset this against the benefits - a mindblowing orgasm and believing you have pleased a woman (who probably doesn't appreciate your effort), and you can see that financial domination really is not worth pursuing or engaging in.

Psychology of Financial Slavery

The vast power of financial domination stems from the way it's deeply wired into ones sex drive and emotions.  The fundamental root of the pleasure obtained from submitting to a woman financially resides in the value system.  The value system rewards us with pleasure each time one of our values is fulfilled.  The value system is designed to prolong and enhance life, but the value system assumes all values are positive and life enhancing.  If somehow, intentionally or accidentally, we acquire a negative value (such as the value of submitting financially to a woman), then whenever we fulfill this value, we are rewarded with pleasure.  The value system cannot differentiate between a positive value that is meant to enhance our life, and a negative value that  restricts our life, so whenever a negative value like submitting financially is triggered, we are rewarded with pleasure as though it were a positive, life enhancing value.  This explains why financial domination is so addictive and pleasurable, and why it is so challenging to overcome.

A slaves belief system also holds a big key to the addiction.  Whatever one believes about themselves and their world is true to them.  When I was a slave I believed that I was worthless, pathetic, a loser, and that women were superior to myself and all men on earth!  These beliefs are not the ones someone with genuinely high levels of self-esteem would possess.
These beliefs developed from my inaccurate perception of the world (chiefly how I perceived rejections from women in my early youth), low self-esteem, BDSM and D/s porn (this was a VERY big influencer for me), and from the feminist programming from the media and the world in general.
When one realizes that one is NOT worthless, that one has tremendous value both to the world and to a woman one can have a loving relationship with, ones self esteem is raised and his desire to submit decreases.  This brings me to my nerdy formula!  The degree of ones 'submissiveness' is inversely proportional to ones level of self-esteem:

Submissiveness proportional to 1/self-esteem

sorry... I couldn't help it! I'm a scientist at heart, in all this text there had to be an equation somewhere! lol

In addition to exploiting this negative value and the negative beliefs many slaves possess, many financial dommes employ hypnosis and NLP to anchor your feelings of arousal and orgasm to sending them cash!  They also exploit human behaviors, such as social proof, commitment and consistency, the friendship factor/liking and scarcity to add further punches to their already deadly anchors.  These methods of persuasion can be seen on pretty much all financial domme websites, in their Livejournal entries as well in some of their videos.  Almost everything you get from a financial domme is in some way designed to keep you addicted.  Financial dommes are very intelligent, manipulative and sneaky individuals and produce highly elaborate schemes to anchor emotions and trigger them strategically so you'll spend more on them and stick with them for longer.
When a slave buys gifts or tributes his Domme, he feels a sense of importance and self-worth, that he has pleased and helped his Domme.  This is another aspect of the addiction, where one can easily become addicted to feeling good about buying gifts for his Domme.  The slave also gains psychological trust, and acquires 'pay momentum' where he is more likely to submit further in the future to prove to himself and the domme that he is consistent.

Thoughts and habits in the mind are like paths in grass.  The more one thinks about or acts on a thought, the deeper and more worn the path becomes.  Therefore the more one exposes ones self to financial domination (or any form of submissive D/s - including porn), the more his subconscious mind is programmed and influenced to be submissive.  The more his mind is programmed, the harder it is to overcome the addiction.
A surefire indication that you have been influenced by the contents of the subconscious mind is if you dream about being dominated - either consciously day dreaming, or subconsciously when you sleep.

Read Influence by Dr Robert Cialdini for more information about the various influence and persuasion tactics dommes may use, it's a very insightful book!
Also, Frogs Into Princes by Bandler & Grinder, and Introducing NLP by O'Connor and Seymour are two books which offer vast quantities of information about NLP and anchoring.  Frogs Into Princes is the original book on NLP by the founders of NLP, Richard Bandler and John Grinder.  It is currently out of print, but there are copies available on Amazon and eBay, but expect to pay highly for them - my copy was $80 (and it says $7.50 on the back!) - it's a good book though, and worth every penny.
The Psychology of Self-Esteem by Dr. Nathaniel Branden covers the value system in detail, and also covers many other aspects of self-esteem.  It's a must read book if you are serious about overcoming this addiction!
The Mechanism of Mind by Edward DeBono covers the way in which memories and habits form in the mind (the grass track analogy).  It's quite technical, but a very interesting read.

Types of financial slave

I believe there are 4 types of financial slaves:

1) The 'fantasizing slave' - This guy browses all the toplists and livejournal pages for financial dommes, and fantasizes about being enslaved and dominated by them.  He lurks, but doesn't act on his desires. 

2) The media fantasist - This guy acts on his desires by buying media, such as pictures or videos from the financial domme.  By doing so, he is gaining psychological trust with the domme, and gaining 'commitment and consistency' which increases the probability of further future submission dramatically.  This seemingly small initial purchase may snowball into mass buying of all the dommes videos and pictures, which can amount to several hundred dollars.  This is the start of the 'real' addiction.

3) The 'Junior' Financial Slave - This guy contacts the domme, either in response to one of the requests in one of the dommes videos (e.g. 'email me for further instruction', 'email me for permission to cum', 'spoil me', etc), or just from her website.  He buys gifts from her wishlist, sends giftcards, or tributes her on niteflirt.  At first these tributes are relatively small, but as the addiction grows, he starts spending more and more on his Domme.  He may also try to compete with other guys to be her 'favorite pet'. 

4) The 'Mature' Financial Slave - This is a guy who has served his Domme for extended periods of time.  He likely has a good relationship with his Domme, and gives her 80+% of his disposable income.  I have never been here myself, so my advice for overcoming this type of problem would just be theory and hypothesis from some of the books I have read on addictions and psychology.  This guy is likely to be deeply in debt and suffering severe consequences for his actions.  If anyone has overcome this, which I am sure there will be, please contact me and let me know how you succeeded.  I also have a forum up for guys to post to where they can share their experiences.

Overcoming the addiction

In brief, I believe the following ideas are essential to overcome this addiction:

1)    Acknowledge the problem and accept 100% responsibility for it
2)    Make a decision to overcome the addiction
3)    Get Pissed Off!!!
4)    Set Goals
5)    Increase your self-esteem
6)    Create 'conventional' sex habits
7)    Learn seduction and find your ideal woman

Acknowledge the problem and accept 100% responsibility

It’s so important that you realize how serious this addiction is.  If you are currently a slave you’ll know exactly what the problems are.  If you’re a 'fantasizing slave' STOP NOW!!! You will eventually be lured in, it’s only a matter of time.  I lurked for almost 2 years before I finally gave in and paid, and paid dearly I did.  This is no joke it’s a serious addiction that can truly fuck up your life!

It can be easy to blame your Domme, but really all the blame rests on yourself.  It is essential to accept 100% responsibility for your actions.  The dommes INFLUENCED you to act, they didn't FORCE you to act.  They employ mind persuasion, not mind control.
The sooner you accept 100% responsibility for your actions, the sooner you can free yourself from this addiction.

Make a decision to overcome the addiction

Now you have acknowledge 100% responsibility, it's important to take this to the next step.  Now its time to take responsibility for OVERCOMING the addiction.  Make a decision to overcome the addiction!  Once the decision has been made, it has been made and there is no going back.  Write the decision down on paper to make it more 'real' and lock it deeper into your subconscious.  Totally detach from the option of going back. 

Get pissed off!!!!!

Emotions are VERY powerful things.  All emotions can be used as motivation.  The financial dommes use your emotions of orgasm, sex drive and feelings of importance to motivate you to tribute them. 
I think the quickest approach to overcoming financial domination is to get pissed off!!! Really get mad!  Get so mad your anger exceeds your desire to submit, so mad you don’t want to give her any more of your money.  Whenever you think of your Goddess, don’t run thoughts of giving her all your weeks wage, think THE FUCKING BITCH HOW DARE SHE ARRRRGH!!! Get REALLY MAD!  Eventually, this anger will be anchored onto your thoughts you have of your Goddess, and these thoughts will overwrite your thoughts of surrendering financially to her.  This was the most powerful exercise that helped me.  It’s simple but effective.
Now, a word of warning.  Do not let your anger gain control of you.  Just use it as fuel to motivate you to overcome your addiction.  Don't blame your domme or yourself too much, just get angry when you think about your domme or submitting to her, but don't get so mad you have an aneurysm! 
Anger is a very powerful emotion and you will find that it will overwrite your desire to submit, so when your feeling anger, when you are pissed off, there is no way you can think of surrendering to your domme!  But remember the old spider man line: ‘With great power comes great responsibility’ – use your anger in constructive ways to overcome your addiction, not in negative destructive or harmful ways.

This stage will effectively 'overwrite' any anchors you have in your mind to submitting to your domme, and will also give you motivation to overcome your addiction, but it won't solve the core, fundamental root of the addiction - the negative value of financial domination in the value system.  This means, although you won't feel the desire to submit to your specific domme, you may still find the thought of submitting to 'a domme' arousing.  If you persist, you can get to a manageable level where you no longer want to submit to any domme whatsoever.  This is the level where I am right now :).  All it takes is persistence for a few weeks, and you can be here too.

Set Goals

I think it’s very important to set goals for things YOU want to achieve in YOUR life!  Do you know how long the average person lives?  The figure may shock you.  The average person only lives around 28251 days!!!  That’s not a long time!!  Do you want to look back on your life and see yourself not really accomplishing anything (apart from getting in a shitload of debt)?

One of the best visualization exercises I know that can give you a big kick up the ass to make yourself change is to imagine yourself 80 years old or so, sitting in the retirement home on the last day of your life, looking back on your life knowing that your time is done, and nothing else can be done.  You think about all the times you could have changed, all the things you could have done, all the great things in the world you could have experienced, but didn't.
Do you really want to be the guy who regrets his life?  I know I don't! 
If you do this visualization properly you'll feel down and depressed - and even more motivated than ever to overcome this addiction.

Setting goals is easy, but there is a structure to them though. 

There are 4 main requirements of a goal:

1) The goal must be PERSONAL
2) The goal must be POSITIVE!
3) The goal must be MEASURABLE
4) The goal must be SPECIFIC

The questions below provide a good outline for your goals.

By answering the questions below for yourself, in detail, you should feel a sense of motivation to overcome your addiction and start living your life for YOU, not for your domme.  ANYTHING is possible, if you want to be a millionaire, put it down as a goal.  I know I want to be a millionaire before I turn 40.  That’s one of my goals.  Remember goals must be personal, positive, measurable and specific. E.g.:
I will earn $1Million per annum before the age of 40

So now it’s your turn…

How much do you want to earn in 5 years time?
How much do you want to earn in 10 years time?
How much do you want to earn in 20 years time?
How much savings do you want?
How much do you want to retire with?
Where do you want to live?
What car do you want to drive?
What would your ideal girlfriend or wife look like?
Where would you like to travel to in the world?

It is always a good idea to write out your goals on paper.  This makes your goal a goal, not just a wish. Some people even suggest writing them in a spiral notebook and rewriting them every morning.

Get yourself a copy of Brian Tracy's The Psychology of Achievement for more information about goal setting.  It's a very insightful audio program.  You can get yourself a copy from www.briantracy.com.

Increase your self-esteem

From my studies into psychology, I believe that the root to financial domination and many other problems is low self-esteem.  People with low self-esteem, or a low self-concept that pertains to women, are far more likely to submit to a ‘Goddess’ they perceive to be superior to them.  They degrade and humiliate themselves for the entertainment of their Goddess, just to suffer themselves.  They may get excited sexually, but subconsciously they are reinforcing their negative self-esteem each time they submit and humiliate themselves and act in ways that individuals with low self-esteem act.  On the flip side, people with high self-esteem don’t give their hard earned cash over to some beautiful woman online, they don’t beg for permission to cum, they don’t eat their cum after their Goddess has given them the privilege to cum.  People with high self-esteem would think that is CRAZY!

So, how do we improve our self-esteem?

Dr Nathaniel Branden in his book ‘How to raise your self-esteem’ talks about the importance of living consciously.  I truly believe this is extremely important when it comes to overcoming financial domination addictions.  Living consciously basically means seeing the world as it is, whether you like it or not, free from any perceptions or 'delusions' you have.  See the world LOGICALLY rather than emotionally!  When you get horny and your mind goes all fuzzy and euphoric just as your about to send your Goddess $600, your living unconsciously and emotionally!  You're living a fantasy that is detached from and avoiding reality.  Whenever you get into this state STEP BACK AND STOP!!!!! See it logically AS IT IS!!!  She's a woman, you’re a guy, your handing over a shitload of cash – but why?  Because she’s a Goddess? Lmfao that woman goes for a shit in the morning just like you, she’s nothing particularly special, just a woman!  She's no Goddess, she’s just an attractive woman out to make a quick killing!  That’s reality!  It's harsh, but true.
Another important aspect of raising self-esteem is to ACT as though you already have high self-esteem.  Self-esteem is like a vicious circle.  If you have low self-esteem, you act in ways that low self esteem people act (e.g. believing your only worth to a woman is the money you give her, drinking cum because your 'goddess' says so, etc).  This further reinforces your low self-esteem.  People with high self esteem would never dream of doing such a thing!  Act like someone with high self-esteem, and eventually you'll start thinking like them, and your addiction to financial slavery will be a thing of the past!

Create 'conventional' sex habits

Now, as I described earlier, financial domination is brought about by constantly thinking and associating the feeling of orgasm to sending dommes money.  The more this association is triggered, the deeper it becomes and the harder it is to break free.
If you have done the 'Get pissed off!' exercise, you will find that you no longer feel aroused by submitting to your domme, BUT you still have a sex drive to satisfy! 
Now, I use porn to rewire my mind to associate my sex drive with sex, rather than sending money to my domme or submitting to a Mistress.  I watch conventional porn (No BDSM/Ds!) and I associate with the man in the video - I visualize myself stepping into him, seeing what he sees, hearing what he hears, and feeling how good it feels to be fucking a super hot babe!  When you do this at first, it feels pretty boring and dull as it's not as good as the orgasm you get from submitting financially, but as you persevere and keep doing the exercise, eventually your mind will reconnect your sex drive back to sex, rather than sending money to your domme, and you will feel the same explosive orgasm when you watch this porn to when you submitted financially to your domme!
Once you have your sex drive anchored back to sex porn, you will find that real sex is more pleasurable too, and you don't have to fantasize about your fetishes in order to cum.  Your addiction to financial domination will be over, and you can start living your life for yourself and enjoying the pleasures sex can bring!

Learn seduction and find yourself a girlfriend

This is another big one.  I believe that people who are addicted to financial domination really, deep down, have a strong desire to be in a loving relationship with a beautiful woman.  I know I do.  I believe that most guys into financial slavery see beautiful women as totally out of their reach, and feel that the only way to please them is with their cash.  This is a huge insecurity and misconception (and a manifestation of low self-esteem!).

Now, being a financial slave hasn’t been totally negative for me.  I have learned some fascinating truths about human behavior and influence.  I learned that we all make decisions emotionally, but women do so far more than men do.  Our decision to tribute our domme is purely emotional, and women feel a powerful emotion to guys who they are attracted to.
Now, contrary to popular belief, women are seldom attracted to super rich guys, tall guys, handsome guys, etc.  It helps, but it's not essential.  The idea that you must be tall, dark and handsome, and super rich to get a woman of value is all bullshit programming we have invented ourselves as excuses for our failure with women, programming we got from the media and retail world who want to sell us the best growth hormone pills, hair regrowth formulas and penis enlargement pills, and from our friends who really don't know any better as they are exposed to the same programming as everyone!
These attributes- good looks, wealth, etc RARELY evoke EMOTIONS in a woman.  Sure, sometimes an attractive or wealthy man can make a women feel initial attraction / lust, but that alone usually will NOT justify her dating him. Most of these pointers are LOGICAL aspects, not emotional ones.  Women are not like computers, they don’t have a script in their mind that logically totals up all your attributes and at the end if you exceed a threshold her attraction mechanism is enabled, else it’s not.
NO!! Women just ‘have a feeling!’  In fact, women can even date guys they LOGICALLY know will hurt them, but do so anyway because they are overrun by their emotions (sound familiar?). 
This is why women are attracted to 'badboys' rather than nice guys.  Bad boys are exciting - the range of emotions that a woman feels when she is around a badboy is infinitely more than what she feels when she is around a nice guy.  Nice guys are nice, they just give love and nothing else (apart from gifts and money) - they are predictable and boring.  Women want fun, excitement and unpredictability in their lives, not boring, normal, predictable every day routines.

The most important determinant of 'attractiveness' of a man to a woman is not his height, his bank balance, his looks, his clothes or what aftershave or cologne he wears.  It's his PERSONALITY!  Women are primarily attracted to personality over looks.  A dominant, alpha, confident, funny, positive attitude is what women want.  Most women of value would rather date a man with a good personality who is short and not particularly attractive, who is in a poorly paid job (I know a 5'5" tall fork lift truck driver who's dating a real hottie at the moment) to a tall highly intelligent man, who is bland, boring, shy and predictable with no personality at all (yes, I know many guys like this - I used to be one!).
Now, the good news is that it is possible to acquire these attractive personality traits!  Just like women know that their attractiveness is proportional to their looks, so they plaster their face in makeup, we can acquire psychological make up for our mind and personality!  It is possible to transform from having a totally 'ugly', boring, submissive, meek, shy, introverted personality to a fascinating, dominant alpha male who is irresistible to women - it just takes time and effort.  Read 'The Game' by Neil Strauss, about a short, gangly, thin, bald nerdy writer who transformed himself over the course of a year into one of the worlds best pickup artists.  Ross Jeffries, one of the guys who educated Neil Strauss, and the founder of the entire seduction community, is regarded by many as highly unattractive physically, but he is still able to seduce many beautiful women.  The fact is LOOKS do NOT correlate to attractiveness when it comes to the majority of women.  It's all about personality, and the FUN you can give women.  Cyndi Lauper said it best: Girls just wanna have fun!
When it comes to wealth, women of value are usually attracted to the CONFIDENCE that the wealthy man possesses, not the wealth directly.  The man's confidence gets him the money AND the women, it's rarely the money alone that gets the women.
I’ve been studying seduction for a long time now, on and off since June 2005, but pretty much constantly over the last year or so.   There are many techniques available, from NLP/Hypnosis approaches (similar to the approaches financial dommes use on us!) to routines and magic tricks, all the way through to working on ones inner belief system.  Although NLP seduction techniques are fascinating, and really do reveal a lot about how financial dommes ‘get into your head’, I find that it to be borderline unethical and quite manipulative.  Sure it works, you can drive up all number of emotions in a woman using NLP from feelings of fascination, attraction, and absolute lust, but it’s just artificial and fake.  Routines are similar, they are not as manipulative, but also seem fake.  I believe the best way to learn seduction is to learn it from the ground up - from your belief system.  If you build a belief system that a natural seducer has, you think like a natural seducer, and then you become a natural seducer!  Carlos Xuma has some great information on building positive alpha belief systems. 

You can find some good self-hypnosis CDs/MP3s (for you to play to yourself to reprogram your mind, not for you to use on women directly) at www.puainnergame.com. These recordings program your mind to increase self-esteem, gain confidence, increase social skills and eliminate social anxiety.  They are similar to the erotic hypnosis MP3's you can get from some dommes, but obviously these ones fill your mind with more positive suggestions!  I attribute a lot of my success, both at overcoming financial domination and to my ability with women, to these MP3's.  The increase self-esteem platinum recording and the No More Mr Nice Guy recording really helped me tremendously when it came to overcoming financial domination addiction.  The Dating Success Power Pack was also indispensable to building my confidence with women.
Good conversation ability is also very important when it comes to seduction.  From my experience, Juggler method covers conversation much better than any other method I have studied (and I have studied pretty much all the PUAs, including Ross Jeffries, Mystery, David DeAngelo, Carlos Xuma, Neil Strauss (Style), Ron Lois and David Copeland, Swingcat, Thundercat, Lance Mason, Zan, Gunwitch, hypnotica, badboy, Dave Riker, Orion & Kamal, Mehow, Maj Mark Cunningham, David Deida, David Shade, Tyler Durden (RSD) and Gambler).  Juggler's eBook is very good, as is his Charisma Seminar, which I was lucky to attend in March 2008. 

Leaving your domme

Now you have overcome your addiction, it's time to leave your domme.  The best way to do this is politely and respectfully with no abuse, insults or negativity.  Tell her you are wanting to focus on your career, or something like that.  Your domme will understand, unless she's some kind of evil psycho bitch lol.

Other ways to help

I have tried many, many crazy techniques to overcome this addiction.  Some worked, some didn't.  Here I'll list some additional techniques that can help overcome your addiction:
A note of warning though - You really should check with your doctor before taking any supplements.  They may interact with some of your current medications or cause complications.  I know you MUST NOT take St John's wort if you are currently being prescribed fluoxetine (prozac) or other prescription SSRI's due to the toxic interaction between the St John' wort and the SSRI.

1) St John's Wort supplements
St John's Wort is a herbal SSRI (an antidepressant).  This can help elevate your mood, make you more positive, and in high doses can help to reduce your sex drive temporarily (good if you have a very hard addiction to break... reduce the sex drive, and you reduce the urge to submit!)
You can purchase St John's wort supplements from any health store and most supermarkets.

2) 5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) supplements
5-HTP is an amino acid precursor to Serotonin - the 'feel good' chemical in your brain.  By supplementing with 5-HTP you can elevate your serotonin levels and feel happier.  Just like St John's wort, 5-HTP can be used to reduce sex drive in high doses.
You can purchase 5-HTP supplements from any health store.  I havn't seen this stocked in supermarkets yet as it is quite rare - health stores are the best place to get 5-HTP.

3) Liquorice supplements
A supplement you can use to reduce testosterone and thereby inhibit sex drive.  Just don't take too much of it (no more than 100mg/day of the active ingredient glycyrrhizic acid) or you'll be running to the toilet all day!
Again, this is best purchased from a health store.

4) Affirmations
Affirmations are positive phrases you repeat to yourself regularly, usually early in the morning, just before bed, when you are bored or when the need arises.  Affirmations must be emotionally charged to really work.
A good affirmation is 'I like myself!'  Repeat this to yourself 10 times each morning, while smiling and you really will feel a boost.  You can also repeat this whenever you are feeling down to give yourself a quick boost.
A good affirmation I like to use is 'I am dominant and alpha!'  This is useful for overcoming financial domination addiction and boosts self-esteem.  It will feel uncomfortable the first few times you say it as it will be totally outside your normal view of yourself, but that is proof you really should be saying it!
If you start daydreaming about your domme, repeat the 'I am dominant and alpha!' affirmation.  You will find that this counteracts the submissive desires you have.

5) Zero based thinking
I got this from Brian Tracy.  Basically, with zero based thinking you ask yourself:
Knowing what I now know, if I were to wipe the slate clean and start all over, would I get into financial domination again?
For me, it was a big HELL NO!
I also did this for BDSM, and for watching porn, and each time the answer was NO! 
Thinking back on my life so far there has been nothing that has decreased my self-esteem, affected my social life and hindered my success more than porn, BDSM and financial domination.
