dominatrix: a female in the sadomasochistic role of total domination and discipline.

Dictionary of Sexology Project: Main Index

A Dominatrix is a professional in sadomasochism who has mastered the art of seduction as well as the exchange of energy, pain and cash. She employs various psychological and material weapons in the session with the submissive (or masochist or fetishist- these categories can and often do overlap). These include, but are by no means limited to, masks, whips, rope, chain, and paddles.

She is clad in erotic gear of alluring materials, be it leather or pvc or rubber or even chrome and can engage the client in heavy roleplay or not, depending on her preference and his proclivity to achieving satisfaction under the conditions of their activity.

She may use a safeword so that the client has a way out of the abuse should things get too heated. She will wear latex gloves to prevent the exchange of fluids while in session.

She may or may not be a Domme in "real life" and personal degree of sadism is also highly variable.
