Professional Submissive

Definition - What does Professional Submissive mean?

A professional submissive is a sex worker employed to perform the submissive role in BDSM activities. Most professional submissives do not consider themselves to be prostitutes as they don’t usually have sex for money.

Professional submissives are less common than professional dominants and can be found working at BDSM dungeons or through BDSM websites.

Kinkly explains Professional Submissive

Professional submissives are often hired by single people, or those who are attached but have not found a way to live out their fantasies, perhaps because their partners do not share their kinks, or are not aware of them. Some professional submissives also cater to couples.

The services a professional submissive performs for a client varies from job to job. Some clients enjoy role-playing, others enjoy bondage and sadism. A professional submissive will adapt his or her services to suit a particular client's desires. A professional submissive might agree to be tied up, spanked, tickled, or even flogged if this is what turns the client on. They might also assume the role of a student, secretary, pet, sex slave, or another popular submissive character.

While a professional submissive works hard to please clients, most have limitations about what is acceptable play. Submissives working at dungeons might abide by house limits, and avoid penetration and fluid exchange. It is always important to respect the preferences and boundaries of a professional submissive.
