Jump to. I always feel very manly while taking pain. I want to think more about this, as well as the accompanying discomfort with female dominants that it implies. My thoughts at the time:. So how do we see stereotypically un-masculine behavior, such as sexual submission, represented in pop culture? Well, sometimes by attempting to preserve manliness in other ways—e.
We also see submissive imagery turned into a joke that only a man too vain to actually think through any of his actions would participate in and yes, everything in my world does eventually come back to Zoolanderhence the photo. One good example of this was in the movie Thumbsucker. We see neurotic, nervous protagonist Justin struggling to abandon his thumbsucking habit at the age of 17, whilst doing all the normal things teenagers do—trying out for the debate team, getting into soft drugs and falling in love with pouty-lipped classmate Rebecca.
When—as any conscious person would probably do, but especially an excited year-old boy—Justin tries to remove the blindfold, she stops him.
I needed to educate myself…so I decided to pick someone like you. Either way, it poses interesting questions about how we feel about submissive men. Most of my last post considered how the image of a submissive male bothers some other men, but what of the people deeply attracted to a man willing to surrender power? Or was the appeal precisely the idea of breaking down a buff, self-assured man into a naughty schoolboy?
One for any J-T fan to have a good long think about…. Her second book To Deprave and Corrupt is due in early Get Bitch Media's top 9 re of the week delivered to your inbox every Saturday morning! I've really been enjoying this series. It's sad that even in these discussions of male submission, there still has to be some "Alpha Male" element. Even in the Sherlock episode, the clients are all in macho professions or very wealthy. There has to be so much reassurance that despite the man's interest in being submissive, he's still a "real man" at work or whatever.
And the notion that his "Alpha Male" qualities make his submissiveness more appealing means we're still buying the masculine narrative, even if it is temporarily overturned. I reject that, because that narrative still stigmatizes vulnerability. That entire binary framework of Alpha Males at the top of the pyramid and everyone else is just another way to preserve masculine privilege. Thank you so much for saying this. I am a submissive man. Outside the bedroom I don't let people walk all over me, but neither do I have a lot of, or seek out, power over others.
I am extremely empathic, but sometimes I am vulnerable. To think that in order to express my sexual submissivity I would have to basically be so dominant in my everyday Ever wanted a sub male slave as to turn play into a kind of ironic theater is about as antithetical to my desires as something could get.
Words like yours help me feel OK with who I am, but too often I pathologize my sexual desires and end up feeling like I have some mental disease. I will admit I'm coming at this from a possibly odd angle.
Anyway, in addition to the issues it causes submissive men, the "alpha male sub" idea is kind of insulting to dominant women, too. I'm a switch, don't even really identify as female, and I still get annoyed with the implication that women obviously can't want to be dominant in real life. Because obviously, they still have to want a manly macho man outside of the bedroom note sarcasm. It seems to basically tell men they can't ever be submissive beyond as a fantasy, and tell women they all still really want to be submissive a majority of the time.
Disclaimer: I don't mean to say that alpha male submissives are bad, or criticize anyone who likes them. I know a few, am quite good friends with one, and it's not an issue. I just get tired of it being the only sort of submissive guy that's supposed to be acceptable. What a interesting article is here. From my point of view, I don't want to be an alpha male, ever. I think it's an awful concept, because it refers sub-textually maybe to a man defined as 'alpha' in relation to women.
I want to be able to be assertive in my day to day life, in the same sense as I expect any healthy man or woman to be assertive, but in a relationship I am submissive, and if I have any attractiveness at all I want it to be because that submissiveness is the heart and soul of me, not because I am an alpha male playing with the turn-on that surrender gives.
The issue for 'genuine' submissives of either sex is that they need to be matched with 'genuine' dominants; and that means genuine dominants who are not just getting off on the idea they are alpha-people, but who recognise what a submissive partner can do for them and what they as a dominant partner can do for their submissive. Submissive males, I think, worry that many, in fact a majority of, women expect what this article calls 'the male narrative' to be played out in a relationship, and that advertising their own submissiveness will be seen as 'leaning on' a potential female partner, pressurising her to be what the submissive male needs her to be.
This article suggests, cautiously albeit, that some maybe many women can be happy and themselves in a dominant role, and that a submissive male partner can play his part in her fulfilment. That is a thought I would like to feel is true. Loved your comment. I'm a female dominant, and I really hate that people like us end up feeling so Ever wanted a sub male slave. Search form Search.
