Women, sex and domination

  Elise Sutton, a psychologist, is back with a sequel to her underground best-seller, “Female Domination: An Exploration of the Male Desire for Loving Female Authority.” Her new nonfiction book is titled “The FemDom Experience,” and it’s a collection of personal stories from people who have participated and lived the female led relationship lifestyle as a reality.
  At the beginning are a preface and introduction that delve into the growing phenomenon of female led relationships and their effect on society. There’s no doubt that this particular lifestyle is attracting more and more people to it. A large part of this is due to the Internet, which enables men and women to meet by the thousands on Web sites and in chat rooms. What had originally started out as a simple male fantasy to be dominated by a beautiful, yet stern woman, has developed a life of its own as more females are beginning to see the advantages of this type of relationship and actually seek to implement it into their own lives. Like the women’s movement for emancipation at the turn of the 20th century, this new trend is not going away and is growing stronger every day. 
  The first section of Sutton’s book deals with the birth of the dominatrix and the influence she’s had on the submissive nature of men in general and the woman’s inner desire to dominate. Sutton discusses the early professional dominatrix of 19th-century England and how she was born out of men’s sexual fantasies and the woman’s necessity for financial survival. She then turns to the birth of this profession within the United States during the 1960s, and up to the present. 
  The next section deals with relationships and how men can go about introducing their hidden desires to the women in their life. It starts off with dating and how important it is to be up front and honest about one’s desires. This then leads to chapters on marriage and living the lifestyle on a 24/7 basis, delving into a variety of activities that the woman can use to enhance the relationship between her and her partner. Of course, everything is supposedly geared toward the female’s personal pleasure and happiness; and, if she’s happy, then the man will be happy!
  The final section deals with different groups that have sprung up over the years and their effect in spreading the advantages of this lifestyle. The reader is given the history of these individual groups, along with their successes and failures in bringing people together. 
  “The FemDom Experience” is an invaluable tool in understanding the new shift in our society toward relationships in which the female is in charge and the male caters to her, putting her specific needs above his own. There’s no mistaking the sexual aspects of this relationship and the use of certain activities in making it work. Sutton believes that our society is gradually returning to the old ways in which a man treated his lady as a goddess. Even the harshest critics can’t argue the fact that relationships of this type have gained in popularity over the past two decades. References to strong and powerful females can be found in countless movies, TV shows, books, articles, Web sites, and even the types of clothes that women wear.
  Certainly as women become more independent, their desire for more control in a relationship grows stronger. Some also believe that with women making the decisions, we might finally create a better world to live in with no hunger or war or homelessness, and where every child receives an education and there’s health care for everyone, and we might actually solve the problems of global warming. Men have done a terrible job of running the world and if we want to survive to see the 22nd century, it’s going to take the firm, but loving hand of the female to do it.
