  • The Submissive Husband & Dominant Wife Dynamic — Let's Talk About BDSM!

    When we think of “submissive” husbands, we might envision some quiet, meek guy who is excessively subservient to his wife.

    But the truth is, many men actually enjoy being submissive in the bedroom as part of BDSM sex play!

    I recently wrote about this topic for our article, “Understanding The Submissive Husband/Dominant Wife Dynamic” and you can read it here:

    https://www.womens-health.com/submis...-dominant-wife

    Are you currently or have you ever been engaged in a submissive husband relationship? If so, how do you and your partner navigate this dynamic? If not, is it something you fantasize about being part of one day? What turns you on about the idea?

  • Hi Gena! Wow, such a juicy article...I just read it and think it is excellent. I never thought of the various dimensions to this, and stuff like "slaves" being involved! WOW!

    But what is most interesting to me, is that being submissive is not a sign of WEAKNESS but one of STRENGTH, and also how much responsibility the "Dom" has for the sub in terms of respect, boundaries and caring about that person enough such that they would never violate the trust that's been instilled in them through the BDSM agreement they're both fulfilling.

    On my side, I tend to be a "Dom" in my relationships and usually meld well with women who like to be taken, dominated and yeah, a little bit roughed up too, in a consensual way of course!

    And at the same time, I have a softer side that allows affection, warmth, kindness and intimacy, and passion in a more traditional lovemaking way...so I guess I straddle both sides of the spectrum, and perhaps that is what has made me a great lover my entire life -- I can read the room, while still adhering to my instincts and what I want to do in the moment.

    Very fascinating stuff, and I'd be super curious to hear from the other forum members if they've ever had these types of fantasies or participated in this arrangement.

    • This article is fantastic. Def gonna read it again with the hubs tonight.

      I love the focus on communication...it’s crazy how many couples think they don’t need to talk through sexual experiences when they’re trying something new. Talking and taking time to process is crucial to any sort of power-play in relationships.
      I also love the wide spectrum of activities covered. So many views on BDSM and the like are so narrow, as if it’s all about whips and leather (nothing against those, but there’s so much more).

      • Wednesday L.F. Yes I think the focus on communication is so important for every relationship (kinky or otherwise)! My bf and I have been in an open relationship for years and people always say "Oh I couldn't do that." If it's something you can't do that's a bad sign for your relationship in my opinion. If it's something you're not into, I totally get that. But if you can't, to me that's saying you don't have enough trust and communication with your partner because that's really all it takes.
