In the BDSM scene the dominant plays the role of either a Mommy, Mistress, Owner, Babysitter, or Teacher. Age play focuses greatly on the practice of relationship dynamics. Spanking, caning, costumes, cuddling & nurturing can play a part of age play. For many, this is a form of escapism from the responsibilities of the adult world.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Many session wrestlers who offer BDSM sessions are skilled in BJJ or some form of martial art. Men who adore strong powerful women love to test/feel the strength and skills of their dominant.

This could be anything from one hour to a month, the longer the submissive is locked up the more chance he has of developing blue ball syndrome. Chasity devices prevent erections, sexual intercourse and orgasms.

Roleplaying provides a safe and legal way of acting out a fantasy.

While it may seem an unusual fetish, scissoring is very popular. Some men wish to be knocked out & squeezed until they go unconscious during a scissor session.

Some session wrestlers have extremely powerful thighs with the ability to crush their victim. There is a famous party trick called the "pressure gauge", where the intensity keeps increasing in increments until the submissive can no longer take the punishment. Scissoring is often combined with other kinks such as domination wrestling in particular.

Scissor holds include but are not limited to, figure 4 scissor, body scissor, front head scissor & reverse head scissor. The service scissoring is offered mostly by session wrestlers.

Semi Competitive Wrestling

Each session provider who offers semi competitive wrestling has their own definition in terms of intensity. Always check with your session provider, semi competitive wrestling is NOT competitive wrestling.

Generally the consensus is that, semi competitive wrestling is where the session provider offends in trying to put their competitor in holds or pins, while their opponent defends using reasonable resistance. This gives the session a real feeling, letting the competitor test the session provider's strength and skills

Semi competitive wrestling sessions should be fun, friendly, focusing more on the challenge, instead of winning.

Sensory Deprivation

Sensory deprivation focuses on eliminating one or more senses of the submissive, therefore heightening their other senses. A dominant might use a blindfold to remove the submissive's sight or ear plugs to remove hearing. The object during a sensory deprivation session is to focus on the remaining senses. Removing a singular or multiple senses heightens the sensitivity of the other senses which can result in an erotic experience.

A dominant may tease and torture their submissive's body using, feathers, floggers, hot wax, electric wands and a variety of sex toys. Sensory play and sensory deprivation heightens the available senses to make foreplay and orgasms more thrilling.

Smoking

For some people who have a smoking fetish the act of watching a female playing with the cigarette before lighting it or the act of smoking itself can cause arousal. It is thought that the cigarette could be seen as a sexual prop and a woman's lips representing her vulva.

Smoking is also associated with the recovery phase after sex, referred to as the "refractory period". This has been portrayed in many film scenes where a naked female sits on the edge of the bed and lights up a cigarette.

Spanking

Spanking within the context of BDSM is a punishment for misbehaving, rule breaking or forgetting to complete a task. Spanking can be the gateway into more hardcore fetishes, enjoyed by both sexes. Spanking is a quirky kink that can involve light playful spanking or heavy painful spanking that results in a sore red bottom.

Individuals who get off on pain, enjoy a good spanking, no matter how bad the spanking is. This may be the effect of an endorphin rush, which is associated with pain. There are no hard and fast rules about how long a spanking may last. Safe words should always be agreed between the dominant and submissive.

SPH

Small penis humiliation or SPH is a fetish where men get aroused when a female ridicules the size of their penis. Within an SPH session, the dominant may mock the size of the man's penis using various methods. Verbal name calling such as micro dick, tiny dick, pencil dick and many more. The dominant may also use props and pornographic images of large cocks to further enhance the humiliation.

Not all men who enjoy SPH have a small penis. In fact, a good number of men who enjoy SPH have average to large sized penises. Another form of SPH is virtual where men send images of their flaccid or erect penis to the dominant for an overall rating.

Strap-on

The male G spot, the prostate is located just inside the rectum, this may be one of the reasons why strap-on is such a popular BDSM fetish. During a strap-on session, the prostate gland is stimulated, this can cause the submissive to ejaculate, referred to as milking. Due to the number of nerve endings attached to the prostate, orgasm or assgasms can be intense.

Strap-on can be considered a from of feminisation, slave training or humiliation. Fantasizing about strap-on is quite normal and will not change anyone’s sexual preferences. The dominant will normally wear a harness with interchangeable  plastic or rubber dildos of various sizes. It is recommended that first timers select a small dildo and gradually work up to a larger one.

Please note, your dominant may request that you give yourself an enema either the day before or the morning prior to your strap-on session.

Tickling

People who enjoy the fetish tickling can become sexually aroused when tickled. The dominant may hold down or tie up the submissive to limit movement. The tickler will generally choose sensitive areas of the body to tickle, such as the ribs, armpits, neck, feet, chest, inner thighs and genitals.

Tickling can be fun, sensual and torturous depending on how ticklish the submissive is. Unlike some other types of fetishes, there is generally very little danger with tickling.

Trampling

Trampling is a BDSM fetish where the submissive becomes aroused by having a person walk over his body. Trampling can be popular with fans of sadomasochism and it is thought that sexual arousal is the result of pain and humiliation.

The dominant may instruct the submissive to lie on either his back or stomach while they walk over his body. In addition to walking, the dominant may jump or stomp on the submissive's back, stomach, chest and genitals, The dominant may be barefoot, wearing socks, nylons, or for extreme trampling, high heels.

Water Sports

Individuals who engage in the kink, watersports enjoy being urinated on. Within a BDSM session, the dominant may use the submissive as their slave toilet, urinating over their face, mouth, body and genitalia. Water sports also referred to as a golden shower can be used as a form of punishment or humiliation.

Wax Play

Wax play is a form of sensual BDSM that can cause sexual arousal. The feeling of the hot wax hitting the body causes a rush of adrenalin which stimulates the pain pleasure centers of the brain. Wax play is often combined with other kinks and fetishes, and generally offered as a service by a dominatrix.

Wax can be used to heighten arousal or used as a form of punishment. Certain wax compounds have higher melting points which causes a more intense experience. Paraffin and soy wax are the most popular varieties for beginners.

Whipping
