Within the kink community, there are all types of dominant and submissive roles, each with their own layer of nuance. Think of gentle femdom as female domination without the elements of pain, harsh punishment, or humiliation. It can be sexual, only BDSM-based, or role-based. As Carol Queen , PhD, resident sexologist at Good Vibrations , says, gentle femdom is more infused with love and nurturing. The erotic component of gentle femdom can be pleasure-focused or it can just be about dominance without pain and intensity that is often associated with non-gentle kink play.
