What does switch mean: a switch is someone who participates in BDSM activities sometimes as a top and other times as a bottom or (in the case of dominance and submission) sometimes as a dominant and other times as a submissive. Partners may switch roles based on mood, desire, or to allow each partner to experience their preferred activity. For example, a switch may be in a relationship with someone of the same primary BDSM orientation (e.g., two dominants), so switching provides each partner with an opportunity to realize his or her BDSM needs.
The act of "switching" may also refer to a spontaneous reversal of roles, initiated by either the bottom or the top.
My previous master and i had talked about it from time to time but i could never really get my head around it, given i always just assumed a Dom was always Dominant and the sub was always submissive. I found it hard to grasp why a Dominant would wish to become submissive, what would he get from that given i assumed that all his pleasure was his control over me, why then would he wish to change roles. I told him that i couldnt assume the role of a Domme in that it wasnt inside of me, i couldnt take that control over from him, i wouldnt know how to dominant him. Needless to say that it never took place between us.
Then i started to read online about about this type of play, i also read about Dominants who liked to dress in womens clothes and be treated as a sub (serving sub) and oh so many other things, and i know this in this lifestyle that really anything goes really but it has really threw me, i just cant get my head around if a guy wishes to be a Dom why then would he want to sub to a sub. i would want my future Dominant to be truely Dominant. (if and when that ever happens)
So i thought i would ask readers if they have found themselves in the same situation and how they coped with it? What would they do if their Dominant asked this of them? and what do other Dominants think of this?
