New ArcaneAdvice.com Article: Not Everyone is a Dom
Please note: This is PART 2 of the series, “Can a Dom be Made, or Only Born as One?”
You can read Part 1, “Evolving Into Excellence” here:

I was recently involved in a conversation further discussing whether a Dom can be “made,” or whether they are they born into it. As you read in “Can a Dom be Made – Part 1” my perspective has evolved over the years into an understanding that YES, under the right circumstances a Dom CAN be made. However, in the recent conversation someone suggested a very “politically correct” standpoint wherein they stated that, “anyone is a Dom if they call themselves a Dom.” Are you laughing yet?
You should have seen the hackles stand up on the back of my neck, because if you’ve learned anything from me thus far then you know that their statement is grossly and abundantly WRONG. The statement caused me to reflect deeply on the fact that there are absolutely circumstance where someone will definitely NOT become anything worthy of being called a Dom. If you know my writings, then you know I generally prefer to teach positively about what people can achieve. However, after this conversation I thought my readers would benefit by being able to understand a few Red Flags in this matter of anyone suddenly self-proclaiming they are a “Dom.”
To this end, I decided to further clarify exactly why some people will NEVER make a good Dom. The spectrum presented between Part 1 and Part 2 should help you see what makes the scales tip FOR or AGAINST the success of anyone being or becoming a Fine Dom. I feel these extremes must be acknowledged so as to avoid allowing some miscreant to present themselves as a “pseudo-dom,” as well as making it clearer which qualities can be welcomed in genuinely well-meaning newcomers who could blossom into excellent Doms.
I begin by addressing the myth that “a Dom cannot love his slave” which has once again reared its ugly head, and of which I dedicate a whole section in my book “IGNITING THE FIRE” to destroying this idiotic myth, because Yes Indeed a Dom ABSOLUTELY CAN love their slave, and in fact in most cases this is highly desirable and even foundational.
First and foremost, about 15-20 years ago I heard this idea that a “Dom should not love his slave; that it will interfere with his ability to be a Dom,” and I have to tell you that is a gigantic load of nonsense. In fact I think it is one of the foremost damaging myths within the greater world of Domination & Submission, and I am happy to dispel that myth. I have only ever seen harm done by this myth, and here is why I happily dispel it (in fact I dedicate a whole section to tearing this exact, particular myth apart in my book)….

The LIMITLESS MAN CONFERENCE in Las Vegas NV this coming Memorial Day Weekend – Classes with Master Arcane and 35 other Expert Instructors!!!
It has been my pleasure over the years to speak and teach at various conferences and gatherings. Many of these are expressly BDSM oriented, though not all. Once in a while a seemingly “vanilla” event will want a speaker there to teach their audiences about the most beautiful side of BDSM, or about what makes for a fulfilling relationship within Domination & Submission.
The Limitless Man Conference is exactly one such event, a mostly “vanilla” gathering aimed specifically at Men who genuinely want to improve themselves. At first I thought I was being asked to teach BDSM and D/s to a group of men just wanting to spice up their sex life. But the more I learned about Limitless Man the more I realized (as you will read below in their press release) that these will be men who Genuinely Want To Be Better Men, to have Better Relationships, and become the Best Possible Partners they can be for their women. I found these goals to comprise a decidedly noble attitude, and as such agreed to conduct a variety of classes at Limitless Man for the attendees who want to learn the Art of BDSM and D/s, above all because of the opportunity to help create more Excellent Male Doms and Male Tops in the world.
Perhaps as little as 5 years ago the subject of BDSM and D/s would have been too “fringe” or too risqué for such a crowd. Not so anymore. We live in the “Post 50 Shades Era” where, as I mentioned in a previous Crow Academy Newsletter, about 1 out of every 37 literate adults over 18 On Earth has at least obtained a copy of that awful-yet-nonetheless-conversation-starting book. While we all agree the book is garbage and the endless butt of jokes, nonetheless the Conversation Has Begun…. openly, and in everyday life. More and more people are now asking about BDSM and D/s, and how they can safely, sanely and lovingly add it to their personal life.
It is therefore going to be my honor to speak at the Limitless Man Conference. I will teach the men who are interested how to become Excellent Doms, how to embrace the Responsibility for their partner’s Well-Being, how to understand BDSM as an Art Form, and how to find their own meaning and self-worth in developing serious skills and proficiency in the BDSM Arts. One of my quintessential and ultimate goals here at The Crow Academy is to help create more Excellent Doms in the world, and I see the Limitless Man attendees who take my classes as candidates to become exactly this.

Arcane Interview with KinkWeekly
Recently, my delightful slave Daphne and I were interviewed for the intriguing new website, KinkWeekly.com
As ‘anniebear’ states in the opening of the interview:
“I sat down with Arcane and his slave Daphne on a sunny afternoon in Hollywood. As an educator and founder of the Crow Academy, Arcane has experience coaching couples on D/s relationships and BDSM techniques. We talked about all things kinky, his new book, and kink around the globe.”
Thought I would share the interview with y’all. 😉

Dominant Dreams and superb submission to you all,
— Master Arcane and The Crow Academy
