From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia
Female submission describes BDSM activities in which the submissive partner is female. Usually the woman is dominated by a dominant man, but sometimes by another woman. It is a popular female fantasy that often appears in erotic literature. A large number of these books are written exclusively by women for a mainly female readership.
Female submission may include elements of Bondage (BDSM), Erotic spanking, and Servitude (BDSM), but submission originates from the desire to relinquish sexual control and also to be pleasing to one’s partner. A woman can include submission in an otherwise vanilla sex life, only submitting for a short period of time during scenes. However, some women choose to submit fulltime, becoming a slave and wearing their master's collar.
