How were you trained as a Dom? And how did you feel when 50 shades opened the door to vanilla, fake D/s players?

I was never trained as a domain. Sorry to say I find the idea quite silly as bdsm and even being a doom is really such a broad term. As far as 50 shades of grey I see it as a movie about a mentally abusive and manipulative sociopath. The bdsm elements really just seemed like light kink.
