BDSM: What’s A Switch?

BDSM What's A Switch

So, What’s A Switch? 

In the area of bondage, a switch is someone who “switches” between dominant and submissive roles. Not surprisingly, a lot of people in the BDSM community take issue with this and have a very negative reaction to someone deemed to be a Switch. Many claim switches should just “make up their mind,” but the truth is that we all have our own flavors and sometimes we like them all. I personally don’t see anything wrong with that, but I can see how dedicated dominants and submissives would take issue with it. It’s not fitting into the mold, as it were, but that doesn’t mean there’s a problem. It simply means you will need to look for a very special kind of BDSM relationship in order to satisfy their diverse tastes.

Who Switches & Why?

Switches vary from all walks of life and may have any sexual orientation so it’s very important not to assume anything. Often times, switches are very experienced in the world of BDSM and know precisely what they desire. They tend to be polyamorous or swingers, switching between partners frequently to satisfy their needs. Although they switch from being incredibly dominant or incredibly submissive, usually always in some extreme, they will always stick with one mode in a scene. They won’t likely “switch” in the middle of a scene and many have trouble admitting they enjoy switching because it’s considered such a big turn off in the BDSM community. To truly be a switch, you should be able to seamlessly play both roles of dominant and submissive, though not at the same time or in the same scene. It shouldn’t be forced, but the role chosen will likely be influenced by whatever mood the switch is in.

Variety is the spice of life, right? Maybe switching is a fun undertaking for the right people and there shouldn’t be any judgment in that. Sexual pleasure and fulfillment is a curious thing and we should allow others to seek their erotic truths in whatever way they please so long as nobody gets hurt (in any real way).
