Learn How To Be Submissive & Have Kinkier Sex

Whether your man wants to try his hand at being dominant in the bedroom or you find yourself turned on when you’re playing the role of a submissive, you might want to try relinquishing power in the bedroom. These feelings are normal for many people, and you may even want to play both roles at different times. However, it can feel awkward and even a bit silly if you don’t know what to do, so here’s your primer!

Power exchange is a two-way street, which means you’ll have to talk to your man about it if you’re interested. It’s best to talk to him about it well before the fact and not during the heat of the moment. Switching from regular sex to that which includes BDSM can be tricky or awkward in the moment. Discussing it beforehand also helps you to determine what you’re both comfortable doing and not doing.

If you’re unsure how your partner will react, approach the subject by explaining exactly what it is you wish to do – being tied up, spanking, flogging, blindfolds, orgasm control, service or some other form of BDSM.

You might simply want to be taken over his lap, but saying you want to try “BDSM” might bring to mind more extreme forms of bondage and discipline or even ideas of abuse that aren’t actually safe, sane and consensual. 

What If He’s Not Dominant? 

Hopefully, you’ll be matched with a partner who is interested in playing the counterpart role to yours, but this isn’t always the case. While you can’t force the desire to dominate in another person, you can highlight how powerful he will feel by taking on that mantle so that he can make demands of and perform erotic activities with you.

You may also find that your partner is interested in trying on the dominant role but is worried about hurting you. This is a major stumbling block for some couples.

Having a safe word, which you’ll read about later, can help put you both at ease. If you know that pain or submission turns you on, you can also explain how that feels for you. For example, it’s not that pain doesn’t hurt necessarily, but that you don’t experience it in a negative way.

Either way, your boyfriend or husband might need encouraging if you’re really interested in submitting. In fact, if he does have interest in dominating you, he might not understand what you see in playing the counterpart. If this is the case, then you simply need to explain it to him.

If service is a large component, you can discuss how pleasing him ultimately pleases you as well.

A Primer on How to Be Submissive 

Although this article will suggest plenty of behaviors that show your how to be submissive and exemplify power exchange between you and your partner, there’s no one way to be submissive.

Instead, you should look for the ways to show submission to your partner that you are personally comfortable with. Furthermore, if your partner wants you to be submissive but you’re not naturally inclined to be that way, the best you might be able to do is to play a bottom for the scene. Bottoms receive the same bondage and discipline as a submissive, but the idea is that it’s a temporarily role, and you don’t have to necessarily feel submissive.

Generally, a submissive person will be the one who is bound, gagged or blindfolded…or a combination of all 3 Often, a submissive will wear a collar in addition to those binds. Your submissive persona may be the receiver of penetrative sex and impact play such as a spanking, paddling or flogging. If you’re engaging in BDSM with sex, you might find that giving oral sex to your partner helps you feel submissive.

The feeling of power that a person often feels when receiving oral sex certainly lends itself to the power exchange you’re looking for. 

To really dive into the submissive role, you can ask your partner whether you can perform certain actions, such as bringing yourself to orgasm or changing positions. You might also find that you both enjoy it if you call your partner “Sir” – or another nickname that indicates your positions of dominance and submission.

Some power exchange relationships extend outside the bedroom. For example, serving your partner at home or even in public can be a sign of subservience. You might have a specific routine that requires you to kneel or to drop your eyes when in front of him. Many of these things can be adapted to play time in the bedroom and vice versa.

Roleplaying, Dominance and Submission 

For some people, it’s easier to get into a submissive head space by playing a specific role that’s associated with submission. Here are a few:
  • Teacher and student
  • Boss and employee/secretary
  • Coach and athlete

Of course, there are many other scenarios that you could play with your partner, and you could simply be the more dominant and submissive versions of yourselves, respectively. However, roles add in an idea of how a scene should play out and the type of words and behaviors that each person will display. 

How to Be Submissive Without Giving up All Control 

Remember that just because you are the submissive or bottom doesn’t mean you lack control. Ideally, you’ll discuss with your partner what will happen before the fact if you’re planning a serious BDSM scene rather than just sprinkling in a few elements into your regular sexual routine.

A safe word can also help to ease your reluctance if you’re not sure about this whole BDSM thing. A safe word is a word or phrase you can say when things are too intense for you to handle. Your safe word should be easy to remember and say even when you’re under duress. Wikipedia has some great info on safe words here.

A popular system is the “Light” system in which you instruct your partner, saying “red” when you want him to stop, “yellow” when you want him to slow down and “green” when you want him to continue.

It can be exhilarating to give up power in the bedroom, but it can also be frightening if you don’t feel safe or understand how to be submissive in a healthy way.

Even if you enjoy being a submissive, you may still run into intense feelings or find that your scenes trigger past traumas. Both of those things are normal, and if your relationship is healthy, you should be able to work through them to truly enjoy how erotic and freeing BDSM can be.

Beware of any partner who thinks the only way to be submissive is to give complete control. A lack of safe words, discussion of your what’s going to happen and your feelings or wanting to jump into a BDSM-like scenario too early in your relationship can be a red flag that this person is a potential abuser.

BDSM is a far cry from actual abuse because you should both be benefiting from BDSM, and no one should truly force you to do anything you don’t feel safe or comfortable doing.

Turning the Tables 

We commonly see images of dominant males and submissive females, but that’s not the only way how to be submissive. Your man could submit to you, the powerful woman, or you can take turns with dominance and submission. A person who enjoys both roles is known as a switch, and a switch gets to experience both sides of the coin.

Taking on the dominant role has the obvious benefit of you getting to use your man for your pleasure and benefit. It’s also a great way to show him what you like in bed and to train him to do those things on command! Just because you’re a woman doesn’t mean you have to be submissive, and you can learn a lot about yourself by exploring your dominant side too.

When done right, exploring BDSM follows the mantra of “safe, sane and consensual.” Whether you want to be dominant or submissive, there’s no reason to be ashamed or even afraid. With honest and open communication, you can safely explore those sides of you to find things that turn you on or even bring you closer to your man.

How To Be A Complete & Total Slut – 14 Steps To Sluthood

What’s A Slut, Anyway?
A slut is a word that is typically used to describe promiscuous women and women that enjoy casual sex. It is a word that is almost exclusively used for women and it does not have a positive connotation. It creates an image of a woman of low value. A guy who leads a similar lifestyle is often called a stud or a player.
So what is wrong with a woman who enjoys having sex? Are women supposed to repress their desires while men fulfill theirs? That’s neither a fair nor a healthy attitude.
This isn’t how we look at men. Men aren’t expected to “save” their virginity, and having sex with a lot of women can earn some mad props from other men.
The more I thought about it, the more confused I became. Even though it’s common enough for women to be called sluts, it doesn’t always seem to mean the same thing!
Before you can learn how to be a slut, you need to understand what it means to be a slut.
Everyone who uses the word “slut” uses it in a slightly different way.
