The DS in BDSM: Authority Transfer Based Relationships aka Power Exchange


Authority Transfer based relationships are ones in which one party is in charge (dominant) and the other party submits or surrenders to the person in charge (submissive). There are many names for this type of relationship: Dominant/submissive, Master/slave, Owner/property, Top/bottom.

- How this type of relationship works

- Why a person would want to be in this type of relationship

- The sexy and exciting bits of authority transfer in and out of the bedroom

- Taking control of another person – the overview

- Surrendering control to another person – the overview

- A brief primer on consent and negotiation
