Femdom, or female dominance, refers to BDSM activities where the dominant partner is female. A female dominant is often called a dominatrix, domme or domina. Professional dominatrices (also called "pro dommes") in particular give themselves a named persona, with aristocratic or deific associations, thus "Mistress", "Lady", "Madame", "Goddess", etc.
Femdom scenarios are less common than maledom scenarios in BDSM fiction, but can be found in fiction such as Venus in Furs, The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty.
The work of the artist Eric Stanton frequently depicts situations where men are being sexually dominated by women. Bettie Page is a famous American fetish model who was often photographed posing as a dominatrix with a whip while wearing fetish attire such as stockings, corsets, and high heeled shoes or boots.
Naturally, femdom activities may draw on all areas of BDSM, but there tends to be an association with radical feminism, whether seriously or fantastically. This can lead to apparent paradoxes, such as the humiliation of men by feminization, though it is readily resolved by seeing this as disclaiming traditional gender associations, and transference of coded images of weakness onto men. Strap-on play plays a significant part in this as well. The inverse of this is of course to glorify the feminine, for example in panty fetishism and boot worship.
Similarly, erotic humiliation can focus on the inadequacy of a male sub's penis, demoting it to a plaything for the dominatrix, over which the male has no real control. Thus cock and ball torture (CBT), verbal humiliation, and orgasm denial.
Light female dominantion scenarios may involve ageplay, erotic spanking, and body worship, usually foot worship.
More intense and heavier female domination scenarios may involve facesitting or smothering, which tend to focus on the sub giving the dominant female oral pleasure, or the dominant female giving the sub anal sex using a strap-on dildo. Other forms of more intense female domination can include face slapping, hair pulling, caning, heavy torture and heavy whipping. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Femdom [Jan 2005]
Mizora: A World of Women (1880-1881) - Mary E. Bradley Lane
Mizora: A World of Women (1880-1881) - Mary E. Bradley Lane [Amazon.com] [FR] [DE] [UK]
There is a curious book by a woman from the nineteenth century called "Mizora." In it an all-female "utopia" exists in the center of the Earth. They reproduce through parthenogenesis, practice eugenics, and all of them are blonde "Aryan" types. This is the closest thing to a real "feminazism" I know of. (Even though it was written decades before the Nazis) Although there might be a very small element of white-supremacist women who advocate some form of feminism. --T.

Dressage () - Bernard de Montorgueil
Dressage, suivi de : Une brune piquante, les Quatres jeudis, Barbara () - Bernard de Montorgueil [Amazon FR]
Avec les manuscrits attribués (a posteriori, et très arbitrairement) au pseudonyme de " Bernard Montorgueil ", nous touchons à un des mystères les plus épais de la littérature clandestine. Passés en vente il y a une trentaine d'années, ces manuscrits furent en principe tous rachetés par un riche amateur américain. Mais quelques années plus tard, il en parut quelques-uns en Hollande, puis en France. Nous en présentons ici cinq, dont un complètement inédit, provenant de la collection privée d'Alexandre Dupouy. On va voir que ces textes, fondés sur le principe de la soumission masculine face à des " dresseuses " somptueuses et raffinées, fonctionnent parfaitement : épisodes bien enlevés, soigneusement décrits, ils méritent entièrement l'attention des amateurs - comme des lecteurs, si nous osons dire, de tout poil.
