Master, Mistress, Mxtress, Mxtrix

Our Definition

A dominant party who has control over a slave in a consensual master-slave dynamic. Often, not always, practice 24/7 total power exchange with a submissive slave. Not all dominants who prefer these forms of address engage in total power exchange or the master-slave dynamic.

Common Practices & Experiences 

Everyone is different! You'll see this repeated throughout our website and glossary. Common practices and experiences for Masters/Mistresses/Mxtrixes include, but certainly aren't limited to:
  • Being involved in, or desiring a continuous power exchange dynamic.
  • Enjoying the trappings of total power exchange either in-scene or as a continuous dynamic.
  • Preferring partners who identify as slaves or lifestyle submissives.

Sam wants a continuous power exchange dynamic wherein she has total authority over her submissive partner.

Mike prefers “master” as a term of address but is in a continuous limited dynamic with his pet.
