Why do I choose to identify with the title of Goddess as opposed to “Mistress” or “Master” or any other variety of Dominant titles?
The style of domination that comes most naturally to me is one where you recognize the inherent power, sensuality, sexuality, and allure within me. While I absolutely have the ability to dominate you in a more traditional forceful, power-taking way; I prefer when you give yourself to me. The power exchange there is more meaningful. The way you submit is different when the submission is given rather than taken.
Does that mean I want you fawning over me, worshipping at my feet, and lavishing me with gifts? I mean…of course, who doesn’t! But that doesn’t mean that traditional BDSM interactions go out the window either. I can and do enjoy humiliation, impact play, pushing your limits and discovering kinks and ways to explore domination and submission!
It’s all about intention. Do you intend to fight your submission? Are you going to be attempting to top from the bottom? Then I question your intentions as a sub in general, and in particular if my domination style is for you. I want to control you because you want it. If you’re going to be a teasing brat, I will remind you of your place and remind you why you worship me, but if I have to convince you and drag you kicking and screaming every step of the way, then perhaps this pairing isn’t right for us.
I am powerful, I am badass, I am endlessly sexy and delightfully silly; and that alone qualifies me as a goddess. I also care about you as a person, not just about controlling you as a submissive. I want you to do and be your best so that you can do and be your best for me as well. Domination for me isn’t about the fetishes or about the kinky play (though those are absolutely delightful things to include!), it’s about knowing, really knowing, that you are giving yourself to me because you believe that I deserve it. That I deserve to be served and that you deserve to serve.
As a sub, what’s your favorite part of the power exchange? There are no wrong answers here. Is it the knowledge that the person can overpower you and do what you want? Is it the trust that the other person can act out their darkest desires on your helpless body without going further than you can take? Is it the freedom of giving up your choices and control? I want you to think about these things and decide that I’m the one that will be taking this power from you and adding it to my own.
In practice and action there’s not necessarily a lot of difference in the functionality of a Goddess dominant vs a Mistress dominant. Much like a mistress, I can be a goddess of pain, a goddess of anger, a goddess of love and care, a goddess of healing. The difference to me is a mental one. It’s how I picture myself, and how I’d like you to picture me. What traits come to mind when you think of a goddess? A goddess is someone you are in awe of, someone you worship, and someone you have a deeply personal connection with. And that’s my goal with every D/s relationship. To find the divine in myself, communicate that divinity to you, and for you to recognize and apply yourself to the servitude and worship of that divinity.
