Up to this point I had been referring to Merideth as Mistress. At the time it seemed like a good idea because the definition from MW is:
a woman other than his wife with whom a married man has a continuing sexual relationship
Which fits exactly as I was attempting to characterize her. However there is another meaning of Mistress that some of my readers couldn’t get past:
a woman who has power, authority, or ownership
That could mean running a school, but in the BDSM world it means a dominant woman. I understand and apologize for the mix up as Merideth is decidedly not a Mistress in that sense. Quite the opposite actually.
Therefore I will refer to her now as Merideth. Sorry for the trouble!
