It's time for N, O, and P. NOPE. According to Urban Dictionary, there are several definitions of the word "Nope." There seems to be a consensus among various sources, though, that "Nope" is somehow different than "No." It is a variant of the word "No" and there are some situations where "Nope" simply fits better. Here are some different definitions and examples, slightly altered so as to pertain to our D/D lifestyle:
1. The best response to a sub who is trying to argue or debate with you; the ultimate comeback that is immediately followed by a spanking.
Sub: "You are so wrong! My way was the right way!"
Dom: "Nope." *takes Sub over lap for spanking*
2. "No" or "negative." An emphatic form of "no," implying that the Dom's answer will not be changing in the future--often used when the Dom has to say no repeatedly.
Sub: "Are we done yet?"
Sub: "Can I get off your lap yet?"
Sub: "Can I leave the corner now?"
3. The reaction a sub has when seeing a scary spanking implement, e.g. Lexan cane
*Sub walks into bedroom and sees Lexan cane and paddle laying on the bed.*
Sub: *backs away slowly* "Nope nope nope nope nope..."
4. A flat-out refusal; the complete and ultimate rejection of orders.
Dom: "Your task for tomorrow is to write me a three-page reflection on respect. Now over my lap."
*Highly un-recommended response.
5. A word to express when a sub knows what she is attempting will not be successful.
Dom: "You are going to be punished for this."
Sub: "You shouldn't punish me because I really tried to do the right thing. I even prepared, thought ahead, wrote instructions, and...um...nope, OK." *gives in and goes over knee*
6. The most common response from women when a man asks for anal sex.
Man: "Would you like to try something new?"
Woman: "Sure, sounds exciting!"
Man: "Anal sex..."
Man: "I'll be gentle..."
A message of caution to the subs of Blogland: Just because you can use the word "Nope" doesn't mean you should. I wouldn't recommend reenacting any of these scenarios. If you simply can't resist, perhaps you should follow it up with a "Sir," so as to make it slightly more respectful.
