Most of the people that a professional dominatrix sees are men who have high powered jobs; ones who have to be in control all of the time and whom everyone looks to for stability and strength. Just like tough feminist women who have to hold it together most of the time and be strong, sometimes they want to take a vacation from that in a safe and consensual way. I think so many women like being sexually submissive because it’s a break from how tough they have to be in the rest of their lives.
