I believe that one can separate emotional attachment and the pure physical enjoyment of sex and fetish play. I see sex and play as between friends rather than requiring a relationship. Age, gender, or orientation doesn't matter to me. It all comes down to trusting your partner. However, having a relationship makes sex very special and emotionally intimate to me. A relationship allows me to have the dialogue and consent to push a person's boundaries.
As far as friends go, I'm looking for someone intelligent and with a dash of tact. It doesn't matter if you just want a discreet meeting or take the time to get to know me, I prefer a bit of class in the interaction. Before I engage in any sort of session, I like to discuss boundaries and 'what if' scenarios. With people I barely know, it's always a great idea to use protection.
I am mostly dominant and I am interested in new connections – perhaps a friend, a group of people, or a relationship. I'd be down for grabbing a beer at a bar, sharing a dessert at a restaurant, or tying you down right away if we're the right fit.
