The women who write about their CDD experiences online are not complaining. Many of them report feeling extremely calm and relaxed after being disciplined, and believe it is an expression of their husband caring about them enough to help them modify their behaviour.
virginity
Am I crazy? Repressed? Am I brainwashed with legalistic doctrine that I was force fed my whole life? Actually, no.

Pensacola Christian College markets itself as “one of the friendliest college campuses in America." In reality, it is one of the most dangerous places for abuse victims.
religion
Should I have asked her, politely, to stop with all the religious talk? Am I overreacting?
atheism

No doubt he represents himself as Mr. Squeaky Clean Role Model to the parishioners in his wholesome Midwest hometown. They just don’t know he’s really a kinky sex maniac who’s totally into coveting thy neighbor’s wife.

I always felt lame for being lazy and unathletic. Now I'm just grateful I got to avoid college sports coaches like this apparent nutjob Beckie Francis.
