Dominate

Definition - What does Dominate mean?

Dominate refers to a practice in the BDSM lifestyle where one partner exercises physical and emotional control over the other both in a sexual and non-sexual context. The superior party is often referred to as the Dominant (Dom) or Dominatrix (Domme) while their partner is known as a submissive. Erotic domination is enjoyable to both partners. A safe word is commonly established to ensure that both parties remain firmly within pre-determined boundaries.

Kinkly explains Dominate

Contrary to popular belief, domination is not limited to physical contact. It also includes erotic humiliation, phone sex, or various types of mind-games where the submissive party follows a list of instructions provided by the dominant. For example, the Dominant might order the submissive to go out in public with no underwear or to wear a leash and a collar when both of them are out together.

During domination, the superior partner has full control over the submissive's chastity. Some Dominants want their submissive to completely belong to them and consequently require them to wear a chastity belt. On the other hand, others prefer to share their submissives with other Doms. This practice is often used in the BDSM lifestyle to illustrate the Dominant's ownership over the submissive's body. However, it is not done without the consent of the submissive.
