Definition - What does Absolute Power Exchange (APE) mean?

An absolute power exchange (APE) is an extreme form of power exchange where there is an apparent master/slave relationship. It is less extreme than a owner/property relationship, and is also sometimes referred to as a total power exchange (TPE)

Kinkly explains Absolute Power Exchange (APE)

In an absolute power exchange, generally, the slave or submissive owns their own property and may act in their own right, but follows all the commands of the master or dominant. In this type of power exchange the submissive does have a degree of freedom, while in owner/property relationship there is no freedom of the submissive.
