Dominance is...

Dominance is not so much an act as it is an intellectual, philosophical, emotional, and thoughtful state.


The Appropriate Mix 

Dominance entails conquest and requires effort, desire, and ability.  If any of the three is missing, then the dominance is lackluster at best. True dominance does not come from whips or chains but of torments and bonds much deeper. The best mind fuck is when a true dominance takes the desire for independence and replaces it with total dependence.


Submission vs Surrender

A slave merely gives, submission is even easier as it is surrender with choices after that residing with the dominant. One can offer submission, but in doing so diminishes it. In fact the submissive offer capitulation but it is the dominant person who accepts it, and in accepting it takes the freedom from the submissive. Surrender is not a freely given state, but one compelled or forced of an individual and demanded by the dominating entity or situation. There is a fallacy in this lifestyle that the submissive surrender their freedom willingly. It is when forcing upon the submission as a victim that dominance effectively grabs the throat with invisible hands, squeezing ever so tightly that the submissive realizes it has no options.


 The Act of Owning

The taking of an individual as property requires there is control and yes even violence. The act of dominating needs to initiate with a rending of the soul, the mind, and self-image. The dominant shreds the parts of a submissive’s psyche which are self-defining replacing them with a structure and form suitable to the needs of the dominant. The usurping of wills leaves the slave with a single path forward and the return to "freedom" is impossible; no options left ONLY its submission. The effect is why freed individuals once emancipated who are truly of a "slavish mindset" always seeks a return to the structure and control of submission in which they find comfort.


 Applying the Stockholm Psychosis

Any true dominants know this, they in effect practice a form of "Stockholm Syndrome" and take what their's by right of willpower is. Now and forever. The human survival instinct is very strong, and when faced with overwhelming odds individuals tend to either rebel forcible or instinctive become diminutive as a function of survival and self-protection. Clinical psychology researchers found the attachment of individuals to dominants occurred in all the "hostage" groups studied, including:

  • Lifestyle submissives,

  • Cult members,

  • Battered women,

  • Incest victims and

  • Those suffering from physical or emotional abuse.


There is no universally accepted definition of the Stockholm Syndrome, but there is agreement that observations demonstrated the following:

  • The captives, submissives and subjugated all hold:

    • Positive feelings towards his/her subjugator.

    • Negative feelings toward any individuals attempting to disengage them from the subjugation.

  • The subjugators generally develop:

    • Positive feelings towards their subjugated

    • Protective of their subjugated

    • Defensive of eternal interference.


It has been found to occur in circumstances where there is:

  • a perceived threat to survival and a belief that the captor is willing to carry out that threat.

  • a perception by the captive of some small kindness from the captor within the context of terror.

  • isolation from perspectives other than those of the captor.

  • perceived an inability to escape



Prey or Victim

Dominants within the lifestyle infuse much in candidate submissives through a mix of terror and excitement. The submissive at first feels victimized and possibly trapped or unable escape, therefore, connecting their physical, psychological or even emotional well-being to their submission. A skillful dominant realizes that the victim needs nurturance and protection to process the terror, and a sense of compliance to justify the excitement. Sometimes it is the isolation from others which compels the victim to turn to the abuser, at other times it becomes a group dynamic where simply as a part of a community they find following the pattern a sense of “normalcy”.  


Kindness as a Bond

The small kindness given by the dominant creates hope and comfort within the subjugated. The kindness shown allows the subjugated to overlook their overwhelming rage at times accompanying the abuse. They compartmentalize it hide it, and simply accept the acts as normal or even fulfilling. This further bonds the subjugated to the dominant at a very deep and emotional level.


Hope Reinforces Submission

The hope builds with every event, and the subjugated begins to take on more acts to keep their dominator happy enthusiastically. Determined to build on the emotional bonding and needs now in the subjugated, they begin to arrest their own needs, feelings, and perspectives. Putting their self-worth and value as secondary to the those of the Dominator allows them to adopt the perspective of the dominant unconsciously.


Role Definition

Now the dominant becomes the "positive force," and those,  acting against the continuation of the situation become "negative forces." The entire sense of self over time (depending on the intensity of the situation) becomes that which the dominant desires. This transformation results in the subjugated becoming a “slave” to the will of their “master” and if the opportunity arises to challenge the state, the slave ceases to have reason to do so.


Total Power Exchange

Never wanting the limelight or openly interacting with people without instructions. They merely become casually involved in conversations at the request of others and while never truly becoming wallflowers in social situations. The submission is now total and complete, a true power exchange.


The best and most successful dominates are intelligent, thoughtful, analytical and very practiced in the arts of cementing submissive bonding. It becomes the cornerstone of long-running relationships, and the flight and return or errant submissives.
