Definition - What does Male Submission mean?

Male submission describes any sexual activity or fantasy in which a male submissive, or male sub, plays a subservient role to a dominant partner. Commonly, male submission occurs in a BDSM context through acts of servitude or sadomasochistic sex. However, for some couples, a non-traditional yet vanilla act, such as woman-on-top intercourse may be considered a form of male submission.

Kinkly explains Male Submission

In a BDSM context, male submission might involve the submissive worshipping at the feet of their partner or being bound and whipped by them. A man could demonstrate his submission by wearing BDSM accessories such as a slave collar, chastity belt, muzzle, head mask, or gag. He might also adhere to behavioral rules set by the dominant partner. However male submission manifests, it is about focusing attention on the dominant partner and his or her needs.

Like all submissives, male submissives are not necessarily powerless in their relationships. The rights of submissives are generally discussed in advance of the D/s relationship and are often put into writing regardless of gender.
