look up any word, like pussy:

3.
A male/female who is sexually submissive to their Master/Dom by choice. The "GIFT" if submission is earned by respect it's not just given.
Safe, sane and consensual submissive.
Characterizes the acceptable play within the SM community: players adhere to safety precautions within their activities, do not participate in practices that will injure their partners (mentally or physically), and obtain consent by negotiating scenes and scene related activities before carrying them out.

4.
A person (male or female) who is part of the BDSM subculture, who takes part in a power exchange (partial or total) within a relationship. This doesn't have to be sexual- Dom/sub relationships can entirely exclude sex. The Dom (also known as a Top), takes control over the subs (or bottom) life; this can be in the form of dictating their diet, or what they wear, or more intimate things. The sub often wears a collar to show that they are owned by a Dom.
My Master told me not to drink any alcohol, so I obey him because I am his submissive.

5.
A person who submits to a dominant person or Sector. I don't think that is the same than slutty because that person doesn't do it necessarily for that reason. If a guy says "I fucked two girls last night" you won't describe him as a submissive person. A woman who can break double standars and make her own decisions, a woman who can fight to her goals and also a woman who wants to satisfy her desires is not submissive, but to the men sector she shouldn't do those things because "she doesn't deserve the same sexual freedom" so the woman who represses her own desires just to obey expired norms is the Submissive one
they told me: you can't do that, so I won't, oh I'm Submissive
