A little over a year ago, I came across something completely new to me when I made an account on Fetlife. As I created my account, one of the questions they asked for was my BDSM role. I was going to select 'Master' as I always had, but found a few different options further down the dropdown list. Each of them was listed as 'Primal', 'Primal Dom', and 'Primal sub'. In my curiosity, I went on to find out just what a Primal is, which led to the discovery that I am a Primal and prompted me to write an article all about what I found, and what makes someone a Primal.
