SSC
Safe, Sane and Consensual .
Whilst the "submissive" partner might be expected at a superficial level to comply with whatever their "dominant" desires, in fact both partners to the arrangement are more likely to make detailed preparations and arrive at understandings to ensure both receive the "treatment" or outcomes they desire. Within the BDSM community, this type of preparation is known as "setting limits", and activities are often referred to as needing to be "SSC" - "safe, sane and consensual". ( Wikipedia )
