Roleplay Guide 021: Dominance & The Dominant (Character Guide)
A look into the world of domination 101. I will briefly discuss what dominance is, caring for submissives, as well as mentioning different types of Dom(me)s that will help you construct your character/s. This will cover some of my firsthand knowledge, as a Dominant myself, that should provide a decent place to begin your research. (Includes helpful links)

[[MORE]]
THE BASICS (WHAT IS A DOM?)
A Dominant (or, “top”) is the person/s within the BDSM relationship that takes the more controlling role between the partners. Contrary to popular belief in roleplays, not all Dominants are men. There are many Dominant women in the BDSM community. They are typically known as Dommes, but like their male counter-parts, they can choose their own titles so it will likely differ. There are also non-binary Dominants. The term “Dominant” is a fairly gender neutral term that is widely used by non-binary and binary identifiers, and it is also the umbrella term for all the sub-genres of Dominants there are. 
Not a lot of roleplayers know that there is more than a “Master/slave” relationship that is available in BDSM, so let’s get into that a bit. Starting with the different kinds of Dominants!
THE MASTER
The Master wants a slave. They want someone who will literally do anything for them, which can often range from a “doormat” to a well-trained slave (not a typical submissive). The Master is up for making all of the decisions of your life should that be something you desire. They are very strict and demand the best from their slave/s, especially when it comes to promises and statements. The Master will not accept anything less than the best and will want to know you better than you know yourself. They are curious, unapologetic and strict. They look deeper than just your appearance and submission attracts them far more than anything else. However, like most other Dominants, they will also never do anything to purposefully hurt the slave in a way they do not want to be hurt. 
THE SADIST
They need to hurt someone; physically, mentally. They will stop at nothing to figure out exciting [new] ways to hurt their bottom (or, “sub”). A Sadist does not need the act of mixing pleasure and pain together through sex, but often rather gets off through the pain itself and can easily climax while just hurting their bottom. Typically, a Sadist is perfectly paired with a masochist.
THE PLAYER
The Player is more interested in becoming the best player with rope than they are in building a relationship with any submissive. They prefer to play around with others, but do not want a real connection. Normally, The Player knows a great deal about their chosen activity. 
DADDY/MOMMY DOMS
Daddy/Mommy Doms can be of any gender/sex, despite the ideas their title conjures up. Daddies and Mommies are gentle and prefer to guide and teach their little/baby (the terms for their subs) how to serve, and succeed. Daddies and Mommies do not scream. They do not lack control. They are responsible and loving, and dominate their littles with a parental guidance they need. Many Daddies and Mommies take care of their submissives much like a parent would a child; playing with coloring books with them, buying them pretty clothes, etc. 
THE ALPHA
The Alpha Dom feels entitled to your submission and will do whatever they feel is necessary to keep you at their feet. Do not try to be bratty, as they would likely not tolerate it. They also would not be happy with a “doormat”, as they like someone with intelligence and good enough looks so they can use their bragging rights as having the best looking submissive. The Alpha knows what to say and how to be dismissive enough to attract most submissives like flies. They have no problem being aloof and giving any type of command. Overall, this type of Dominant is a bit obnoxiously full of themselves.
WHAT A DOMINANT IS NOT
Now that we’ve got a good chunk of the basics to what a Dominant is, let’s talk about what a Dominant isn’t. For this, I’m going to use the current popular piece of shit literature, 50 Shades of Grey’s, Christian Grey. This flavorless character is not a Dominant for a number of reasons. 
Allow me to share.
He disobeys his submissive’s safeword, even going as far to completely ignore her lack of interest in his sexual advances. 
He eroticizes dangerous practices most people in the BDSM community would never fucking do to begin with. 
It is one thing to lead someone who has never experienced BDSM into new experiences, but it’s really quite another to so eagerly select a virgin with no sexual experience whatsoever — which is what he does in the book.
Christian’s overwhelming attention to his submissive’s well-being is controlling, obsessive, and unhealthy. 
The glaring omission of aftercare, which is something that is fucking sacred in the BDSM community. Aftercare is an immediate follow-up that occurs after play of any sort (“play” is the consensual session during which any previously agreed-upon aspect of BDSM may be acted on).
I could go on, but I think the point is made. This is what a wannabe Dominant looks like. This is abuse, not BDSM. 
A Dominant will always listen to their submissive, as the sub holds all the power. This is also something various roleplays overlook for the sake of creating an abusive culture, which is truly hurtful to actual practicing members of the BDSM scene. The submissive’s limits and hard limits must be treated with respect, and never crossed without previous agreements. A submissive should never be treated carelessly, but tenderly, even by hardcore Masters. Real Dominants will never force their submissive to do something they do not enjoy, nor will they ignore their submissive’s distaste during play should it come up. Real Dominants obey safewords, and respect their submissive. ”Safe, sane, consensual” is literally the mantra for the community, so anything that defies that is not true BDSM.
Also, if your character is new to BDSM and you want them to be serious about it, make them humble during their beginning experiences. Do not have them strut around like a fool. People will see them for the fake they are in the real world, and I’d expect much of the same in your written one should you have them act so pompously. It is something that is obnoxiously stereotyped when a character is fairly new and somehow over-confident. No singular Dominant is God’s gift to every submissive, and not every submissive needs to treat someone who is not their Dominant with the respect they think they deserve. Keep that in mind.
CARING FOR A SUBMISSIVE
If there is one thing an aspiring Dominant must have, it’s patience. Learning about toys and basic techniques is a process that might take awhile to master, but the end results are always worth it. 
ASK FOR HELP, TRY IT ON YOURSELF
If a Dominant is not sure, asking for help is the way to go. Rather than hurt someone, many beginners and veterans trying something new will seek our mentors who know the ropes (pun intended). The submissive can also give you lots of insight with regards to the psychology of a submissive, generally. One should also try some of the things on themselves to understand what it feels like.
BE HONEST AND OPEN
Communication between a Dom(me) and their submissive is crucial to the relationship. Without honesty and trust, the relationship is doomed. One must be able to trust the other, and vice versa. You need to get to know a submissive so well that you can use the way they think to dominate them more effectively. This takes two people, since no one will open up to someone who does not know how to be open and honest themselves.
RULES & CARING
A good set of rules are necessary depending on the submissive. Some need only a few set of rules for their daily routine, while other rules can focus on improving a submissive’s self-esteem — they vary, so make sure your set of rules are unique towards the betterment of your submissive. Care is always a must, aftercare especially. Your submissive needs punishment and pain just as much as they need love and security. Make sure to maintain your submissive’s mental state, learning how to improve their well being by understanding who they are as a person. 
BE SENSITIVE AND UNDERSTANDING
Being sensitive to the partner’s wants and needs is vital. Be aware of your [character’s] own wants and needs, and know where to find the balance. If one likes whipping and the other doesn’t, then you could always start off slower by doing some flogging in a sensual way. This way you fulfill some of your needs and you take theirs into account too. However, limits and hard limits should be respected and not forced.
BE CALM, AND ASSERTIVE
Be firm and self-assured, but not to a fault. Know what you want and do not apologize for wanting it. State your wants and needs clearly and clarify it should the sub not understand. Discipline transgressions consistently, and make sure that you do what you say when you said you would. Use your voice and hand gestures, and make sure that rules are established and that they are followed.
Dominance is about knowing who you are, what you want. It’s also about taking those truths and having them fit perfectly with another person’s “who they are” and “what they want” to have something special. Something withstanding that creates a humbling growth within all parties.
