African Femdom Mistresses are some of the most experienced and esteemed within the Femdom community, so it’s no surprise they take their specialty of power exchange seriously and ensure the safety of their submissives. From assessing a submissive’s emotional, physical, and primal needs, to providing informed consent and properly introducing BDSM techniques, an African Femdom Mistress knows the ins and outs of kink and all the measures of safety a submissive needs in order to have a successful experience.
Before beginning a D/s relationship, African Femdom Mistresses will spend time with the submissive to ascertain the individual’s wants and needs. Open, honest, and non-judgmental communication is key here, so the submissive won’t feel embarrassed during the process of gauging what erotic activities they’d like to experience, as well as how deep they want a power exchange to go. African Femdom Mistresses also make sure to ask about any physical limitations or mental hangups the submissive needs to be aware of and works closely with the submissive to slowly build trust while pushing boundaries.
The Mistress can then introduce a variety of BDSM techniques depending on the submissive’s tastes and desires, such as flogging, caning, rope bondage, foot worship, and whatever else the two may agree on. African Femdom Mistresses make sure to slowly but steadily introduce each technique to make sure the submissive feels safe and isn’t overwhelmed. Education regarding each new technique is also vital, which is why a Mistress will explain the practical uses of the BDSM tool and include demonstrations.
To protect each partner further, African Femdom Mistresses typically use a Safeword. This word is designated by the submissive and Mistress before starting the session, and it acts as a way for either partner to stop the activity if it exceeds the boundaries of what was agreed on. This safeword isn’t something to be embarrassed about or used frivolously; it takes one second to create one if a slave starts to feel out of their depth, and it carries much weight when it’s spoken.
In addition to all the safety maneuvers discussed, African Femdom Mistresses also promote the mutual understanding of informed consent between the partners. This means both the Mistress and submissive need to understand the specific BDSM techniques involved, and the risks associated with them. If a Mistress feels her submissive isn’t in a right state of mind when it comes to consent, she will decline the D/s session altogether.
The highlight of ensuring safety within the BDSM world is a loving, caring, and trusting relationship between a Mistress and submissive, which is exactly what African Femdom Mistresses aim for. After discussing boundaries, assessing physical and emotional limitations, and talking about consent, the Mistress should feel at ease enough to explore with her submissive all the BDSM techniques they wish to try. Safewords, communication, and trust are all part of these./div> Original Article.
How has lesbian BDSM been portrayed in the media?
When we think about lesbian bdsm (Bondage, Discipline, Dominance, and Submission) in the media it is often portrayed as something dark and often exploitative. This portrayal often does a disservice to the lesbian BDSM community. It is important to see the positive and consensual side of lesbian BDSM as it exists in real life.
First of all, let’s make a distinction between consensual and non-consensual BDSM. Non-consensual BDSM includes activities such as sexual assault, rape, and abuse. This is of course never OK. On the other hand, consensual BDSM is based on mutual trust and respect. In a BDSM relationship, all roles are negotiated before any activities take place. There must be a clear and enthusiastic consent between all participants. Consent can be withdrawn at any time.
The media often paints BDSM as dangerous and something to be ashamed about. This is misguided. In real life, BDSM activities are a safe and healthy way for people to explore their sexuality and connect with their partners.
Lesbian BDSM has been explored in books, television and movies. One of the earliest examples is the 1998 movie Gia, which depicts supermodel Gia Carangi’s relationship with her friend Linda. In the movie, the two share an intense relationship and engage in BDSM activities.
In the past few years, we have seen more and more lesbian BDSM characters in mainstream media. Take for example, the show Lost Girl, a Canadian series that ran from 2010 to 2015. The show featured a bisexual succubus (the character played by Anna Silk) and her relationship with a female doctor. They explored BDSM activities together in a consensual and realistic manner.
We also saw lesbian BDSM in the hit show Orange is the New Black. The show explored the characters’ relationship with a BDSM backdrop. It showed the characters negotiating their roles, consenting to activities, and even discussing the importance of safety.
In recent years, we have also enjoyed movies and TV shows that explore the dark side of BDSM. In the movie Fifty Shades of Grey, the BDSM was portrayed in an unhealthy and non-consensual manner. This movie put a bad light on BDSM in general, leading some to see it as a dangerous activity. Nevertheless, the movie sparked the interest of many and has inspired to explore: lesbian BDSM.
Overall, portrayals of lesbian BDSM in the media are often negative. It is important to look at how BDSM is presented in media and challenge it to a more realistic one. We need to show that there is a positive side to BDSM: that of mutual trust and consensual activities. It’s important to show that BDSM can be an empowering activity that is based on communication and understanding. Let’s keep challenging media to represent lesbian BDSM in a realistic and positive light.
