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) Such as telling one what to do or how to act. Having pretty much total control over the sub. they may be “bratty” opposited to being obedient this is where they will act up and disobey probably for the purpose of being put in their place. when used in sexual relations submissive fully submit in the bedroom letting you have full control to use them as you please, a sub takes pleasure from pleasing and being used by a dom.

Often confused with a little; a type of submissive. Are not the same taking into consideration that a little acts like a child and a sub really does not.

As ambiguous human sexuality has become in the 21st century, it is important to recognize that being a submissive is just as ambiguous. And that reality has serious implications when you add the need to find a Dominant to serve. Understanding the anatomy of what makes someone submissive is necessary in order to effectively present in the truest and most honest form possible. Because while it is so easy to just focus on fulfilling the fantasy, it is equally difficult to focus on what a Dominant deserves.
A true submissive serves from the heart, they don’t need an Owner driving them to do something, they do it willingly, gladly, eagerly.
