The dictionary definition of submission is the action of accepting and/or yielding to the will or authority of another person.
A submissive is a person who accepts and finds joy in yielding to their Dominant’s will or authority. But even within that definition with the vast complexity of the human psyche and the
there are a number of different types of submissives and way in which they act in their submission and serve their Dominant.
Different Forms Of Submissive Service
While some people try to classify the kinds of submissives that are out there, really it all boils down to three main categories of submissive service:
Now the business sub is someone that you might not think of as being a part of the typical BDSM relationship, but it certainly has its merits. This is a sub that handles business affairs that the dominant does not want to handle themselves.
Think of James Spader’s character in “Secretary.”
Now, this kind of sub doesn’t sound all that romantic in terms of BDSM and all the fun parts of it, but releasing the dominant from those kinds of petty, everyday concerns can allow the submissive to feel as though they are serving the dominant and making that Master’s life easier.
A domestic sub is someone that is more domestically oriented – hence the name. This is someone who is focused on taking care of the home, children, cooking, cleaning, etc. as a means to serve their Master. And this of course has its advantages: who doesn’t want to come home to a clean home that’s organized and free from any stress?
A domestic sub might also be someone that does not work outside the home, but rather is relegated to their service duties inside the home – sometimes with a sexual aspect to them and sometimes not. The possibilities with this kind of sub are endless (no pun intended).
The pleasure sub is what most people think of instantly when they think of a BDSM Dominant/submissive relationship.
This is a sub whose sole purpose is to provide sexual and other kinds of pleasure to their Dominant. You might think of this person as the one that’s locked away in a dungeon and only given attention when the Master wants something from them.
Different Kinds Of Submissives
Are You A Submissive?
You would be pleasantly surprised how common submissive desires are among the general adult population. It is much more common than you think and is one of the most popular fantasies.
When you’re always in the world and need to be the one that controls the things around you, being able to completely relinquish that control to someone else is not only freeing but arousing.
Here are some questions that you will want to ask yourself:
- Does the idea of surrendering control of your body and wishes to another arouse you?
- Does serving someone’s desires pique your interest?
- Have you ever found yourself wanting to learn the wants and desires of someone else and then provide them with that behavior?
- Do you receive pleasure solely from pleasing those around you?
