Submissive Archetypes in BDSM

The world of BDSM, there are many types of people who have many varied interests and desires. Within this world of people, there are common desires and traits. Below is a listing of submissive archetypes. This is based on my own experiences and observations over time. As always I am writing form my own perspective as a Male Dominant for a female submissive.

Submissive types:

  1. The brat. A submissive who likes to test not only her own limits, but the limits of her Dominant. The behavior of a bratty submissive can be akin to a spoiled undisciplined child. This is of course usually done in a playful manner. This can include intentionally misbehaving and/or causing a scene in public. The brat wants to see just how much she can get away with, and just how much discipline her Dominant can and will inflect based on the infraction she’s commuted. This depends on the time, place and circumstance of the undesirable behavior. Once a good rapport is established between a submissive of this type and an accommodating Dominant, can lead to a “Daddy/daughter” type relationship. Brats also have a tendency to be masochistic, enjoying the corporal discipline for the sensations that come with the the punishments carried out.
  2. The baby-girl. A submissive of this type has the desire to be sheltered, protected and cherished in much the way father does for his young daughter. The submissive will have a desire/tendency to act like and adopt the manner of a little girl as a form of extended role-play, which can be permanently fixed depending on the relationship. This includes speaking and dressing like a young girl would. While this can include the adult-baby fetish, it is not necessary.
  3. The pet. This submissive has a strong desire to treated like a house pet, typically a dog or cat. House pets receive a lot of attention and care from their Dominants (or “owners”) in much the same way of a typical house pet. This includes being fed, and walked, petted and so on. While in this role the submissive relinquishes any active human behavior such as speaking, walking upright, and in some cases the wearing of clothing. Among the more dedicated, the intensity of this role can include being regarded as an actual pet, complete and total domestication in the sense that no human consideration is wanted and/or given to the pet for the duration of the relationship.
  4. The dress-up doll. This submissive loves to dress up at the direction of her Dominant.
    To have her outfits for the day chosen for her, to abide by any clothing requirements and/or restrictions the Dominant may have. This usually goes hand-in-glove with a strong desire to be shown off, displayed like a prized pet. This kind of control can extend beyond just the wardrobe, it can conceivably extend to body image and behavior modification.
  5. The bimbo. A submissive of this type is an extension of the dress up doll previously mentioned, The bimbo will have all of the traits mentioned above with an intense need for body modification and behavioral programing. This can include breast implants, hair extensions, speech restrictions and behavioral programing usually through the use of hypnosis. Hypnosis and other forms of conditioning would be used to have the bimbo focus on looking pretty, acting simply, and ready to be used sexually. With successful conditioning the bimbo can be somewhat of a cross between the pet and the baby-girl, though a bimbo will require much upkeep for clothing, beauty treatments and body modification.
  6. The pain-slut. This submissive is first and foremost, a masochist. She derives pleasure from the sensation of pain, weather it be physical pain brought about through spanking, canning, binding, whipping, suspension, piercing, blood-letting, and other forms of punishments/torture. Or the emotional pain that comes from humiliation. A submissive of this type can be very open to sensory experimentation, so long as her safety is assured and her limits are respected.
  7. The controlled whore. This submissive typically has a very high sex drive. As well as an exhibitionist streak akin to the dress-up doll. Often uninhibited and bi-curious (if not already bisexual). Eager to explore and push the limitations of her desires under the guidance of her Dominant.
  8. The servant-slave. For this submissive the will of her Master is hers to carry out, the word of her Master is law. This submissive can exhibit any of the above qualities from the other types mentioned above. A submissive of this type adapts herself to the needs of her Master, and is prepared to take care of any need that should arise. This includes domestic services such as cooking and cleaning, to personal grooming, to sexual use. Devoting herself completely and without question to the service of her chosen Master. This is of course done with full consent and understanding of what her expectations are, and with the Master’s full knowledge and understanding of the servant-slave’s needs desires and limitations. A submissive of this type has a sense of devotion that borders on reverence for the one that she serves.

The classifications and descriptions mentioned above are by no means a definitive answer. Certainly there are submissive out there who have a mix of traits of what has been mentioned above. Though it would be safe to say that some submissive women can identify with one type more than another.
