The world of BDSM is full of possibilities. There are many niches, different plays, and several fun ways of incorporating power play -also called D/s for Dominance/submission - into sexual activities. One branch that arises most interest and curiosity, however, is Femdom.

What is Femdom, anyway?

Femdom stands for Female Dominance - and the simple explanation is the Femdom is any D/s play in which the dominant part is someone who identifies as a woman. Of course, there is much more to it - and this world is much more fun and fascinating than you imagine! So in the following text you will learn about Femdom, its history, how it works and how you can apply it to spice up your sex life!

What makes Femdom so special?

Femdom play does not conform to one sexual orientation or gender dynamic. Even if the image that comes to mind the most is a dominatrix who dominates men, that is just one of many possible arrangements! Femdom is very popular among lesbian lovers - and some dominatrices can dominate couples, too!

Speaking of dominatrices - while every dominatrix practices Femdom, Femdom is not only practiced by Dominatrices. We explain; a dominatrix is usually a paid professional. Some synonyms for the word include Pro-Domme, Domme and Mistress. The role of a dominatrix may not even involve physical pain. The power play can take other forms - name calling, humiliating tasks, servitude, to name just a few. But we will get deeper into this later.

Femdom is a direct subversion of the gender roles assigned in society - it allows women to step into their power and practise dominance in a safe space. This might be incredibly empowering, but don’t be fooled thinking Femdom is a modern phenomenon!

 

Of course, this is just a small sample of what’s out there, and like any other BDSM fantasies, it’s always fun to mix and match! There is a vibrant community for Femdom online, and you can discover a lot about what you’d like to try by reading other people’s experiences, or even tapping into some fantasy - like Femdom erotica. The first step is to start slow, build confidence and never stop!

It's your turn!
