Exploring the Different Types of Submissives in BDSM: From Sexual to Consensual Slave Which One Are You?

Welcome to the world of BDSM, where there are many different types of submissives. BDSM stands for bondage and discipline, dominance and submission, and sadism and masochism.

It’s a world where power exchange is paramount, and we explore different aspects of our psyche that make us feel pleasure in different ways. In this article, we’ll take an in-depth look at the different types of submissives and the importance of negotiation in short-term power exchange.

Defining Types of Submissives By Elements of D/s

The world of BDSM is vast, and within it, there are many different types of submissives. Let’s take a look at two main elements of D/s (Dominance/submission) that help define submissives:

Duration: This refers to the length of time a submissive relationship lasts.

– Short-term: This refers to a submissive relationship that lasts for a short period, anywhere from a few hours to a few weeks. – Medium-term: This refers to a submissive relationship that lasts for a few months to a year.

– Long-term: This refers to a submissive relationship that lasts for years, and sometimes it can be a lifetime. – Scene: This refers to a type of submissive encounter that has a clear beginning and end.

It is usually related to a theme or a specific activity. Level of submission: This refers to the degree of submission within a relationship.

Bottom: Submission is the focus on the physical act, and the submissive may not be interested in any other aspects of D/s. – Sexual submissive: This refers to a submissive who enjoys submitting within a sexual context only.

– Non-sexual submissive: This refers to a submissive who enjoys submitting outside a sexual context. – Consensual slave: This is a relationship where the submissive gives up total control to the dominant and agrees to be owned.

– Service: This is a submissive who enjoys providing services to the dominant. – Sado-masochism: This refers to a submissive who enjoys pain or being dominated.

– Power exchange: This refers to a submissive who gives up control to the dominant with the understanding that the dominant will take care of them fully.

Short-Term

Power Exchange and the Importance of Negotiation in BDSM

In short-term power exchange, a submissive and a dominant come together for a specific amount of time without the intention of pursuing a longer-term relationship. It could be a one-night stand or several play sessions over a weekend.

The goal is to explore a particular aspect of BDSM, get a taste of D/s, and enjoy the experience. When engaging in short-term power exchange, the most crucial step is negotiation.

Planning and communication are critical elements of this step. Before engaging in any D/s activities, it’s essential to discuss what everyone is comfortable with.

This means discussing any limits, boundaries, and expectations of everyone involved. Consent is an essential element of BDSM, and it must be regularly given.

Consent does not mean a one-time “yes” or giving consent to everything. It means checking in with each other before doing anything new or taking things further.

This ongoing negotiation is essential, especially within a shorter-term power exchange. Talking about what you want and don’t want in a scene is just as important as talking about what you are okay with.

Clear communication is key, especially in a shorter-term power exchange because it is more intense. Trust and emotional safety are important even in this context, and the dominant must be clear about their intentions.

In BDSM, there are different play possibilities, and the submissive has the right to choose the type of play they feel comfortable with. Communication during negotiation and play are essential because it helps the submissive feel seen, heard, and valued.

In conclusion, understanding the different types of submissives in BDSM is vital, as is the importance of negotiation and communication in short-term power exchange. It’s essential to remember that while BDSM can be intense, everyone involved must feel safe and respected.

Consensual power exchange can be an incredibly fulfilling and enjoyable experience, and having a clear understanding of what everyone is comfortable with is an important part of making it memorable. Medium-term and

Long-term power exchange is an exciting type of BDSM relationship that can help one explore their deepest desires and keep them engaged for an extended period.

When engaging in any power exchange relationship, it is essential to explore what one is comfortable with. Communication, trust, respect, and consent are crucial elements that ensure a safe and fulfilling experience.

In this section, we will discuss the different kinds of power exchange, including Medium-term and

Long-term power exchange, and what one should expect when entering such relationships.

Medium-term power exchange

A

Medium-term power exchange involves submission and dominance for an extended period, lasting several months to a year. The power exchange is more than a one-time interaction or a short-term span of one or two nights.

Medium-term power exchange is a type of BDSM relationship that usually involves giving control over certain aspects of one’s life. In

Medium-term power exchange relationships, a submissive gives up some control to a dominant in a particular area of their life for an agreed period.

The dominant partner can create rules and limits that the submissive consents to adhere to during this period. Examples of these rules may involve matters such as food choices, financial issues, dress code, or other specific behavioral aspects.

Communication and negotiation of the rules and limits are critical in these types of relationships, as it is crucial to ensure that all parties involved understand the boundaries and agree on them. In any power exchange relationship, there must be trust and mutual respect.

Long-term power exchange

Long-term power exchange involves a deeper level of commitment, trust, and communication, and it is often referred to as total power exchange(TPE). A TPE relationship is a step beyond

Medium-term power exchange and involves a commitment to total and unyielding submission.

It is often referred to as a Master/slave or Mistress/slave relationship. In a TPE relationship, the submissive gives up control to the dominant partner and becomes, in essence, a slave who serves the Master or Mistress’ needs and wants.

This means giving total decision-making power to the dominant in everything, including daily activities such as what to wear, what to eat, and who the submissive can interact with. In a TPE relationship, the Master or Mistress has total control over the submissive’s life.

The submissive must relinquish any decision-making power and accept all of the decisions of their dominant partner. While it may seem one-sided, there are stringent rules and protocols that a skilled Dominant will follow to ensure that the submissive is well cared for emotionally, physically, and mentally.

As with any power exchange relationship, communication, trust, respect, and consent are critical to the success of a TPE relationship. Open communication and negotiation of rules and limits are essential, particularly in a TPE relationship, where the submissive has so little say in their daily lives.

This is why trust is critical in TPE relationships, as the Dominant must be trusted to respect the submissive’s limits and to take care of them emotionally, physically, and mentally.

Conclusion

In conclusion, there are different types of power exchange relationships in BDSM.

Medium-term power exchange involves giving control over certain aspects of one’s life, while long-term power exchange takes the submission to a deeper degree of commitment.

In both types of power exchange, it is essential to communicate openly, negotiate rules and limits, and establish trust, respect, and consent. Whether one chooses to engage in

Medium-term power exchange or try total power exchange, it can be a gratifying experience that transforms one’s relationship with their partner.

It is important to remember that any form of BDSM must be consensual, safe, and respectful for all parties involved. In BDSM, there are different types of submission based on a person’s needs and desires.

These types range from bottom to consensual slave, sexual submissive, non-sexual submissive, sado-masochism, service, and power exchange. In this section, we will delve into the different types of subs based on their needs and desires and explore what ‘bottoming’ means in BDSM.

Different Types of Subs Based on Their Needs

Bottom: This type of submissive enjoys the physical sensations associated with BDSM but does not necessarily want any other type of power exchange in the relationship.

Bottoming can involve anything from spanking, hair pulling, to other types of kinky acts.

Bottoming is often confused with being a submissive. However, bottoms do not necessarily want to submit or have control taken away from them.

For them, it’s all about experiencing physical sensations that come with BDSM activities.

Sexual Submissive: Sexual submissives enjoy submitting within a sexual context. These individuals get aroused by giving up control during sex.

Sexual submissives find it arousing when a dominant controls the pace and type of sexual interaction they have. They trust their dominant partner to take care of their physical and emotional well-being during the sexual activity.

Non-

Sexual Submissive: Non-sexual submissive refers to a submissive who enjoys submitting outside a sexual context. This person may enjoy being told what to do, but this does not mean they are interested in any particular sexual activity.

For them, simply submitting to a dominant’s commands outside of sex is gratifying.

Consensual Slave: Consensual slaves tend to enjoy giving up total control to their dominant and being owned. This is a step beyond submission since the submissive gives up all rights and decisions to the dominant.

The slave relies on the dominant to make all decisions for them. However, as with all forms of BDSM, the relationship is based on trust and consent.

Service Submissive: A service submissive derives pleasure from serving the dominant. Service subs are devoted to their Dominant partner and take pleasure from performing tasks and completing household chores and other activities at the dominant’s request.

Sado-Masochism: This is a type of submission whereby the submissive enjoys pain and enjoys being dominated. Sado-masochists get pleasure out of physical sensations, such as being struck, whipped, or otherwise physically hurt.

Power Exchange: This type of submission entails giving up control to the dominant with the understanding that the dominant will take care of the submissive’s physical, emotional, and mental health.

Bottom

A bottom is a sub who enjoys experiencing the physical sensations associated with BDSM, and they do not necessarily want to be controlled or submit to another’s desires.

Bottoms enjoy being spanked, hair pulled, scratches, or other physical activities.

For some bottoms, it’s about pushing themselves to their physical limits to experience the rush of adrenaline that comes with it.

Bottoming is often misunderstood as submission because the submissive is giving up their power to another person. However, for a bottom, it’s about experiencing physical sensations without necessarily wanting to submit.

For some bottoms, it is more of a recreational activity, and they may not feel the need for any deeper emotional or mental connection during the BDSM activity.

Conclusion

In conclusion, there are different types of submissives in BDSM, ranging from bottoms to consensual slaves, service subs, and sado-masochists. Understanding each type of submissive’s needs and desires is essential to ensure a safe and fulfilling experience.

People engage in BDSM for different reasons, but it all boils down to personal pleasure and mutual consent. When one is aware of what they want and need, it is much easier to find a partner who is into the same things.

Remember, consent, communication, and trust are essential elements of BDSM, regardless of the type of submissive you define as.

Bottoms have their unique place in the BDSM world, and their desires are just as valid as those of the other types of subs.

In BDSM, sexual and non-sexual submissives have distinct characteristics, and it’s essential to understand their unique needs and desires. Sexual submission involves the surrender of power to a dominant partner within a sexual context only, while non-sexual submission entails an interest in submission outside of a sexual setting.

In this section, we’ll explore what these types of submissives enjoy and how the dominant partner can keep them engaged and satisfied.

Sexual Submissive

Sexual submissives enjoy the D/s (Dominance/Submission) dynamic primarily when it comes to sexual acts. For them, the enjoyment of D/s is in the bedroom, and it typically does not extend outside of that space.

During sexual activity, sexual subs like to be dominated and feel as though they do not have the same level of control as their dominant partner. This might involve anything from being tied up to having sexual acts performed on them without their input or choice.

One of the most crucial aspects of being a sexual submissive is obedience. A sexual submissive seeks a dominant who is in control, and they want their partner to command them, taking control of the sexual activity.

This is how they find pleasure, through giving up control to their dominant partner. D/s dynamics within a sexual context can be immensely satisfying to a sexual submissive.

However, it’s important to remember that consent, communication, and trust are critical to the success of any BDSM dynamic, including a sexual one.

Non-sexual Submissive

Non-sexual submission includes engaging in submissive activities outside of a sexual context. A non-sexual submissive typically enjoys practicing submission in everyday activities.

They may enjoy performing acts of service, such as cooking, cleaning, or taking care of their dominant partner’s needs. Some may also enjoy domestic discipline, where the dominant partner enforces specific rules or punishments that the submissive must adhere to.

Roleplay is also an essential part of non-sexual submission. The submissive may enjoy taking on a specific role, such as a pet, a servant, or a student.

In these scenarios, they will submit to their dominant partner’s desires or demands while playing out a specific role. For non-sexual submissives, obedience and servitude is essential.

They take pleasure from trying to please their dominant partner in different ways, and they find satisfaction in fulfilling their partner’s desires. Non-sexual submissives view submission as a way to express their love and devotion to their partner.

It’s crucial for the dominant partner in a non-sexual D/s relationship to keep things interesting- this can be done by setting task challenges that are within the submissive’s ability to perform or even extending tasks outside of their comfort zone.

Conclusion

Sexual and non-sexual submissives have different needs and desires, but the core principles of consent, communication, and trust remain the same. While sexual submissives enjoy the D/s dynamic in the bedroom, non-sexual submissives enjoy submission outside of sexual activities.

Both types of submissives find pleasure in being obedient and serving their dominant partner’s desires in different ways. Dominants should seek to understand their submissive’s needs and desires and strive to create an environment that meets those needs.

By engaging in open communication and ensuring consent, both parties can enjoy the power exchange dynamic in a way that is safe, consensual, and fulfilling.

Consensual Slave

Consensual slaves surrender themselves entirely to their dominant partner, giving up all decision-making power. The dominant becomes the master or mistress, and the submissive becomes their property and possession.

This type of submission is often irreversible, and the relationship can last for a lifetime. Consensual slaves take pleasure in serving their dominant and obeying all of their commands, without question.

In this type of relationship, trust is critical. The slave must trust that their master/mistress will take care of them emotionally, physically, and mentally.

The decision-making power that the slave typically gives up often includes things like what to wear, what and when to eat, and whom to interact with. The dominant partner takes control of everything in the slave’s life, thus making them the complete owner.

It’s important to remember that entering a consensual slave relationship is a massive step. This commitment requires giving oneself entirely to the dominant partner, and complete trust in them to take all decisions.

Power Exchange

Power exchange is the fundamental concept of BDSM. In a power exchange relationship, one partner takes the role of the dominant, who takes control, and the other the submissive, who submits to the control of their dominant partner.

The exchange of power may seem one-sided, but both partners receive satisfaction and fulfillment from the exchange. The exchange of power does not necessarily mean that one person is in control all the time.

Balance is key, and both parties have a responsibility to balance the power dynamic to ensure the other’s emotional, physical, and mental welfare. In a power exchange relationship, decision-making is shared, but the ultimate decision-making power belongs to the
