Whether you're new to the scene or a seasoned practitioner, understanding the various flavours of submission can add depth and excitement to your play. Let's explore 10 different flavours of submission in BDSM.

1. Brat

The brat is a type of submissive who enjoys pushing boundaries and challenging their dominant. They may act out or misbehave in order to provoke a reaction from their partner.

2. Pet

A pet submissive takes on animalistic qualities, such as behaving like a puppy or kitten. This type of submission can involve pet play, where the submissive acts as a pet to their dominant.

3. Service

Service submissives find pleasure in serving their dominant in various ways, such as cooking, cleaning, or running errands. They take pride in meeting their partner's needs and desires.

4. Masochist

For some submissives, pain and pleasure go hand in hand. Masochistic submission involves deriving pleasure from receiving pain or humiliation from their dominant.

8. Obedience

Some submissives find pleasure in strict obedience and following orders from their dominant without question. This form of submission can involve rules, protocols, and punishments for disobedience.

9. Primal

In a primal dynamic, the submissive partner taps into their primal instincts and desires, embracing a more animalistic and raw form of submission. This type of submission can involve intense physicality and passion.

10. Slave

A slave submissive fully surrenders control to their dominant and lives to serve and obey. They may engage in 24/7 power exchange relationships where the dominant has complete authority over the submissive.
