Worship refers to a BDSM act or dynamic where a part of the dominant's body is revered by one or more submissives. Commonly adored body parts include the penis (cock worship), the vagina/vulva (pussy worship) and the buttocks (ass worship). In a worship dynamic, prostration is involved, wherein the submissive is a sexual inferior and is only allowed to touch the body part by licking, sucking and kissing.

Less commonly, worship can involve the entire body. Other forms of worship including muscle worship and foot worship.

More About Worship

When worship is present in BDSM relationships, the sub will likely act on those impulses only when permitted or instructed to by their dominant partner. In a vanilla relationship, either partner may begin to worship the other’s body without these cues.

A sub will generally show their adoration of their dominant by kissing, licking, sucking and stroking their preferred body part. In this way, body worshippers express their adoration of their partner’s physical form.

The dominant partner generally receives worship passively. However, a dominant may reinforce the body worship by praising or spanking their submissive.

While it is less common, the roles may be reversed if the dominant feels like worshipping the body of their submissive.

The most common forms of worship are penis (cock) worship and vagina (pussy) worship. In penis worship, the submissive takes on a kneeling position to kiss, lick and suck the dominant's penis. Facesitting may also be involved to reinforce the dominant's control. Vagina worship, on the other hand, is referred to as oral servitude. Facesitting may also be practiced.
