BDSM roles

BDSM Roles in the Overview

The range of BDSM roles and fetish personalities is almost endless and many overlap. Be it in motivation, behavior or executed kinks. In order to bring some order to the chaos, here is an overview with a brief description of the around 50 roles.

D-Type

Individuals playing above consensually take physical, emotional, or mental control over other individuals. This can be for the duration of a session , a gaming relationship or, in the best case, a romantic relationship. Sounds like fun, but it also means a lot of responsibility for the well-being of the submissive.

TopA person who consensually controls what is happening in BDSM activities. Top is more of a kind of umbrella term for a variety of dominant roles.
Judgment / Judgmentsshort for “dominant” and uses it to designate a person who consensually assumes power, authority, or control in a relationship, session, or other activity.
Brat-TamerA dominant person who disciplines a submissive but rebellious person and sees this as a challenge.
Daddy / Mommy / CaregiverA person who assumes a paternal or maternal caring role within a relationship dynamic and ageplay .
Master / MistressA person who agrees to take ownership of a person with whom they are in a relationship.
SadistA person who enjoys inflicting consensual humiliation or pain on someone. Be it emotional, mental or physical.
Rigger / Rope TopThe active part in rope bondage , which ties up one or the other person by mutual agreement and taking safety risks into account.
Hotwife / CuckoldressA woman who has sexual relations with people other than her partner. She is often sexually dominant over her partner, and her outward play serves to reinforce her dominance . Your partner is fully aware of your activities and enjoys them.
FeminizerA person who enjoys transforming men into women by changing their appearance, behavior and way of thinking.
Bull / CuckcakeA person who engages in sex with another person whose partner enjoys the cuckold dynamic. Like the sex partner, this person is usually dominant over the third person, the cuckold or the cuckquean.
Primal PredatorA person who enjoys animal games and within them behaves like a primal animal that enjoys hunting and trying to capture prey.
HandlerThe dominant role of the human pet keeper in a pet role-playing game .
MakerA person who is in control of a human doll and generally sets the rules and commands by which it acts and reacts.

ProtectorA person who performs protective activities for another, for example accompanying them to activities to ensure their protection.
DegraderA person who derives pleasure from the consensual humiliation and degradation of others.
SpankerEnjoy spanking other people's butts or other body parts.

S-Types

In forums and BDSM literature, they are often written with a lower case letter to underline the status. Individuals playing below submit to other individuals physically, emotionally, psychologically , or even financially. This can be for the duration of a session or as part of a gaming or romantic relationship. However, giving up control does not mean giving up responsibility, but being clear about your wishes and limits and not being afraid to formulate them clearly at any time.

BottomA person who agrees to relinquish control or receives stimulation during kinky activities that may or may not involve submission.
SubA person who agrees to submit or relinquish control in a relationship, session, or activity
BratA person who enjoys engaging in one or more of the following behaviors to challenge a dominant counterpart: teasing, playful, sneaky, mischievous, stubborn, rebellious, disrespectful, or disobedient.
LittleA person who feels like an infant in age or is willing to adopt infantile behaviors and seeks a relationship with a parenting or caring reference figure. See also ageplay .
MiddleA person who identifies with or behaves with a younger mindset, such as in their teenage years, and seeks a relationship with a caring but strict parent figure. See also ageplay .
SerfA person who agrees to give up total control to someone with whom they are in a relationship. Note : “Serf” is a new term from the USA for the variety commonly understood under the term slave:in. Due to the problematic historical significance and the triggers it still triggers in some people today, we no longer support the use of the terms "slave" and "slave" in public spaces, preferring the term "serf" from now on, i.e. " servant, serf”.
MasochistA person who enjoys receiving pain or humiliation done to them consensually. Be it emotional, mental or physical.
Bunny / Rope BottomA person who, with due regard for safety risks and consensual, allows others to tie themselves up with ropes .

DollA person who likes to be objectified and transformed into some sort of living puppet by their own or someone else's powers.
ToyA person who wishes to be treated as a toy or object and used for playful purposes rather than treated as a human being.
DegradeeA person who loves to be humiliated or humiliated as they derive pleasure or excitement from it.
SpankeeA person who enjoys being spanked on the butt or other parts of the body.

OTHERS

There are also BDSM roles that cannot be divided into “top” and “bottom”, such as the switcher. These are people who have both dominant and submissive traits and, depending on their kink, engage in classic D/s play , bondage, or impact play .

But there are also other roles that are assigned to the kinky spectrum, at the center of which there is not necessarily a power imbalance , but one is recognizable.

SwitchA person who can be dominant or submissive depending on the partner, mood or situation. Some switch with one partner, some have several partners with whom they live out one of the sides.

The list of BDSM types presented here is not exhaustive, nor is it intended to be. We have deliberately chosen the most common game personalities, which at least have the characteristics of a power imbalance, in order to be able to match them with complementary BDSM roles.
