  1. I agree with you that the loss of control is a vital component of submission. If I am reading this correctly; then your hypothesis is that someone who is currently walking the edge of blackmail would be happy with safer activity if they were able to openly discuss what they need.

    This is undoubtedly true for some. A sincere need for something – like submission – cannot be ignored. If it cannot be expressed openly; then it will find some way to come out. By allowing a person to loose that control in a safe manner, the more dangerous desire falls by the wayside.

    However, I believe part of the desire for the edge of blackmail – for some – comes from the risk itself. There simply is no safe way to experience that level of risk. Talking about this need will not move a person to safer experiences, but to more dangerous ones – because they will need to find a thrill and this no longer provides it.
