Definition - What does Degradation mean?

From a sexual standpoint, degradation refers to a consensual technique used to embarrass, demean, and humiliate the submissive partner. This technique procures sexual stimulation and arousal to both parties, as well as spectators, if any. Degradation can occur in both a public and private context. Since it is an intensely subjective issue, degradation involves several types of activities in both a sexual and non-sexual context. It is also important to note that degradation is a consensual activity.

Kinkly explains Degradation

Sexual degradation aims at bringing an intense feeling of submission to the person being embarrassed and/or humiliated. Examples of degradation including spitting, ejaculating on, or urinating on the submissive partner. In some contexts, the dominant party may require their sub to remove all of their clothes in public places like BDSM parties, strip clubs, and other adult venues.

Other aspects of sexual degradation can include verbal abuse, insults, verbal and physical belittlement, degrading references, small penis humiliation, mockery, forced exhibitionism, and forced repetition.
