| In reality most women in the BDSM community that I have observed take the submissive role. Of the Women that take dominant roles many of them are switches meaning that they switch roles and play on both sides of the slash. I would like to make clear however, that this says nothing about women intrinsically, this is just a demographic observation I have made out of one kink community in southern California, so this may vary.
Believe it or not I have actually heard this argument before and I'd like to comment on it:
| Firstly you need to figure out whether you are more suited to the role of the dominant or the submissive in the situation. According to a study by Wismeijer & van Assen (2013)[ext], cited in Psychology Today, the spread across the gender in dominance and submission roles would look similar to the following:
doms to switches (someone who is comfortable playing either role) to help you play them out, or get comfortable with the idea of a man wielding that power over you. BDSM doesn't actually have to involve sexual contact after all.|
| The study by Hébert and Weaver recruited a sample of 270 DSM practitioners through the website Reddit and particularly focused on comparing those who identified primarily as either dominant or submissive. Those who liked to switch between roles were not considered to simplify the comparisons. Much like the Dutch study, there were striking gender differences in preferred role orientations, although these were more marked in this case. As can be seen in the graph I have created below, the vast majority of females in the study preferred the submissive role, suggesting that female dominants may be rather uncommon (and presumably in high demand). The majority of males on the other hand preferred the dominant role, although quite a substantial proportion were submissive.
