Kinkly explains Dominant (Dom)

Being a good Dominant involves much more than being able to control and give orders to others. A good Dominant will also be able to practice self-control and respect their submissive. Dominants should also be responsible enough to decrease the intensity of or stop a scene altogether when a safeword is spoken.
