Ancient Roman Femdom

Anciernt Roman Femdom

Some Roman women casually used male slaves as sex toys or lovers, and kept them in male chastity belts called "thecas" or "seedpods". There's evidence for male prostitutes, presumably slaves, to do cunnilingus to female clients. Real slavery is nasty and evil. The ancient Romans accepted it as normal. These slaves owners, objectifying Roman dominatrixes weren't fetishists. They did they have to negotiate, or dress up in thigh boots and other kinky dresses. They were normal women who took for granted that they had power over a male slave. They could spread their legs and ordering "lick" without even thinking about the slave's reaction. There was teasing and denial, permanent chastity, corporal punishment, objectification and worship. Better yet, the men - the slaves - didn't have to plead or nag for it. Imagine being a true slave for a day.

What's important about the Roman slave mistress. Her power is real, utterly unselfconsciously self-centered in dealings with her slave, and yet that genuine power relationship generates awesome femdom action. She is actually prepared to pay for a slave. The Roman mistress choose to keep a male slave because her total power over him ensures that she can get what she wants when she wants and how she wants it. The benefits far outweigh the inconvenience of managing a slave.

Vintage Mistress takes through to a fascinating journey into classic femdom

Female domination and Female supremacy has been a popular alternative sexual fetish since at least the 13th century according to ancient writers, Phyllis rode Greek philosopher Aristotle like a pony, while wielding a whip. In actuality, female domination has been quite popular since human beings first wandered the planet.

Although we live in a male-dominated society, female sexuality has been a well-known form of sexual expression, though it is still considered somewhat taboo in the mainstream. In recent years, its popularity has expanded. It has reached the point where it is more accepted in the internet, not to mention books, movies and other types of popular culture.

Ironically, the idea of yielding sexual control to females holds a great deal of excitement for many men in leadership roles. Men often view the female form with great awe and excitement. One can speculate that this is related to early childhood, and man's dependence upon his mother. Although women are the weaker sex in a physical sense, they are capable of using their bodies as weapons to tease, control, and ultimately subjugate men. The idea of role reversal is very exciting to some men, and often leads to great benefits for open-minded women who engage in and adopt the femdom lifestyle.

Thoughts on Femdom

A thought from a femdom supporter
just a comment . . . Women ARE Superior and "Women Over men" is only to state the truth . . . Women intellectually surpass anything any male mind/pseudo brain is capable of thinking . . . Women Dominate over men by virtue of their spirituality . .their mental acuity . . . their physical prowess . . AND by their physical hypnotic mesmerizing sensual/sexual allure and beauty . . . 

any male instantly falls to his knees (either physically or emotionally/psychologically) whenever he sees or is in the presence of a Dominant Female . . . and if the Female happens to be wearing a super-short short micro-mini skirt, the male literally morphs into a creeping crawling groveling worm under Her feet - and pleads for the privilege and honor to remain there . . . to rest under the soles of Her boots . . . 
Lila Sovietskaya Thought
Rape" is the ultimate act of "disrespect" toward and for a Woman and toward "All Women" . . . when one woman is raped, ALL women are raped by that act . . and it inverts the proper order of respect and true dignity of Women . . . Women are to be honored and respected and even revered, so to dishonor a Woman in such manner is the ultimate disrespect . . . all males must be aware of a Woman's position of honor and dignity and act properly and with reverent regard for Her . . . You are right in Your insight about rape being 'the ultimate lack of respect" first lack of respect for Women and then also a lack of respect for himself as a man as well
