I am a big fan of masks. I find them interesting ways to conceal the identity of the wearer. Useful for taking pictures of those you don’t want exposed to the world. More useful though, is the use of masks to deny the senses.
I find using a hood (just another type of mask) over the head of my slave is useful for control. It denies her senses, disorients her. A mask conceals what I want concealed. A useful technique, especially when you don’t want your slave to know what will happen next (or when you accidentally hit the ceiling fan instead).
One more interesting use of masks is the Vi Johnson Award, presented every year at BlackBEAT. Ms. Johnson buys a mask every year which is then awarded to someone who makes a significant impact in the Lifestyle amongst people of color. Every mask has a different meaning.
What meaning does the mask you wear have?
