Male submission or malesub[1] is a situation in BDSM and other sexual activities in which the submissive partner is male.[2] A woman who dominates a male submissive is referred to as a dominant, domme (feminine form of "dominant") or dominatrix.[3] Sexual activity between a male submissive and a dominatrix is referred to as femdom.[4] A 2015 study indicates that 46.6% of men who are active in BDSM expressed a preference for a submissive role, 24% consider themselves to be switches and 29.5% prefer the dominant role.[5]
