New to the world of female domination? Then the first thing to know is that not one dominatrix is the same as another.

If one domina doesn’t quite do it for you, that doesn’t mean your exploration of femdom should come to a halt. There are many different ways to dominate and not all of them will necessarily be up your street. The numerous different terms used in the world of femdom to differentiate these approaches can make it all a bit confusing when you’re new to the scene. Most dommes will incorporate a mix of the below approaches into their sessions, but here is a general summing up of the 5 top styles of femdom.

Disciplinarian femdom📝

Think: school mistress, canes, whips, paddles, writing lines, spanking, getting a good old fashioned telling off. The disciplinarian style of femdom is a very traditional approach.

Common activities: corporal punishment (CP), impact play.

Often known as... Domina, Mistress.

Is it for you?  Did you have spicy daydreams about your teacher in school? Does the thought of cane marks on your bare skin give you butterflies? Do you love being put in your place by an authoritative figure?

If it’s a ✅ – check out a sensualist offering disciplinarian femdom on Sensuali.

 

Sensual femdom🐆

Think: skin on skin, animalism, ear biting, hair pulling. The sensual femdom approach is usually very primal. It’s less sadistic than other styles of femdom more about the physical devouring of their sub. It’s often relishing in the senses such and enjoying the intimacy of somebody’s taste and scent. Many sensual dommes like to be worshipped and treated as the higher being that they are.

Common activities: primal play, temperature play, wrestling, wax play.

Often known as... Domina, Goddess, Mummy.

Is it for you?  Do you dream of somebody not being able to control themselves and simply needing to have you? Are you less into being degraded and more into being ravished? Do you find yourself particularly turned on by sensations rather than mindgames?

Bondage femdom⛓

Think: latex, leather, chains, ropes, cuffs…all of the things you might typically imagine when you think of a dominatrix. Like the disciplinarian, bondage femdom is a more classic style.

Common activities: Shibari, breath play, cock and ball torture (CBT), latex, chastity, tie and tease, edging.

Often known as... Domina, Mistress, Rope Top.

Is it for you?  Get turned on being physically restricted and unable to stop your domme from doing whatever she wants to you? Does a light choking during sex instantly arouse you? Are you obsessed with the idea of pleasure restraint- your orgasm being denied?

Pleasure femdom💋

Think: being nurtured, softly instructed, your pleasure being their pleasure, power without pain. In pleasure femdom, the domme is not interested in inflicting pain and making you give yourself to them. Instead, they give. Their power comes from being in control of your pleasure and giving you mind-blowing orgasms. Because of the caring nature of pleasure femdom, it is sometimes associated with age-play.

Common activities: Orgasm control, sex toys, praise kink.

Often known as… Domina, Mummy.

Is it for you?  Are you a pillow princess? Do you love the idea of a woman in charge but don’t love the idea of being in pain? Do you want be praised whilst for being so good?

If it’s a ✅ – check out a sensualist offering pleasure femdom on Sensuali.

 

Humiliation & degradation femdom🚽

Think: name-calling, spitting, being trampled. In other words, think of the most degrading kink activities and this is what you get. This is for those who are definitely into the psychological side of femdom. A domme who is into humiliation normally gets a real kick out of the power they hold. The bully-esque nature of humiliation means that this style of femdom often attracts dommes who have a playfully bratty side.

Common activities: Human toilet, pet play, slave training, sissification, cuckolding, findom.

Often known as… Domina, Humiliatrix, Owner, Mistress.

Is it for you?  Do you dream of being treated like an object or animal, acting as a footstool or eating out of a dog bowl? Do you want to be told how worthless you are or forced to dress up in embarrassing outfits?
