Femdom Imagery

There’s an intentional lack of imagery on this blog because I find most “femdom” images run counter to everything I believe about women and my role as a submissive male.

Many (most?…ok, probably all) submissives frame their desires through things they learn perusing dark corners of the internet. Males tend to be turned on by visuals, so it makes sense that submissive men would learn a lot about submitting to women through these images.

The problem for me is that so much femdom imagery is about what the male gets out of it. “Forced” feminized men in chastity. Latex-clad women wielding strapons and looking very stern. Grammatically incorrect captions. It’s all about giving the submissive man a rush. It’s about putting submissive men first.

Femdom images inspire me to a greater level of submission to my wife, and to be more focused on my wife’s needs, sexual and otherwise. They’re not so I can imagine how hot it would be if my wife wore a dominatrix costume.

That doesn’t mean I’m not inspired by pictures of men being dominated by women. It’s that I want the picture to put the female at the center (figuratively if not literally), and to be primarily about her pleasure.

I don’t want the image to be about the fact that the man is being dominated. I want it to be about the fact that a woman with a submissive male is receiving greater pleasure and satisfaction (sexually or otherwise) than she would from a non-submissive male. The male’s self-sacrifice shouldn’t be a part of it. It should be assumed, and out of the way.

And these images are important, so I’m going to try to collect them and add some to the blog. To do that, there’s only one place to go.

That’s right–I’ve gotten myself a Tumblr.

You can check out the visual side of my submissive self at lovecherishobey.tumblr.com.

And I would be negligent not to point you to the best example of the genre I have found so far, alternativefemdom.tumblr.com.

I wish this were a bigger piece of the femdom world, and I’d appreciate it if any of you could point me to more of the same. I think most porn makes women into objects, and makes men think the rules are different from how they really are. But I don’t think all erotic images (OK, porn) are like that–I think it’s possible for images to encourage internet-dwelling males to see women not just as people, but as people who can be happier and stronger if we love and support them, rather than seeing them as tools to achieve orgasm with.

And now that I have waded into that arena, I’m going to sign off, because the laundry is nearly done, and there is much folding to do before my wife arrives home.
