Insightful Quotes about Submission in BDSM

Submission is not weakness – it is the furthest thing from it. Often, people stereotype a sub as the introverted and agreeable type. However, submissives come in all shapes, sizes, genders, and personalities. Submission, like anything, is a spectrum. Exploring this either as a submissive or Dominant is a beautiful journey for all involved. These quotes about submission explore all the nuances to this level of devotion. I did my best to find quotes about submission that were not gendered, or can easily be made gender neutral. Above all, I avoided “Fifty Shades” like the plague. I hope you enjoy these quotes as much as I do! Certainly, they “stirred” a few things up!

“Fear can be a potent aphrodisiac.”

-Kele Moon, Beyond Eden

“If my Master is lost, I’ll find him. I’ll lead him back to himself, because to serve doesn’t always mean to follow.”

“Right on the edge of fear was where trust could grow.”

-Cherise Sinclair, Breaking Free

“I’m offering you my pain. My blood. My pleasure. [Secondly], I’m offering you the right to whip and fuck. To debase and harm. [Lastly], I’m offering to fight your needs with my own. I’m willing to join you in the darkness and find pleasure in excruciating pain. I’m willing to be your monster, Q.”

-Pepper Winters, Tears of Tess

“Fear, anxiety, arousal, and pain; all are emotions and sensations. They are neither right, nor are they wrong; good nor bad. They are simply passions, a most important part of life. Feel them, fully experience them, surrender to them, and learn to accept them. As a submissive, you must let go.”

-Nikki Sex, Fate

“BDSM is about dropping the pretenses; I want you completely exposed.”

-Sierra Cartwright, With This Collar

“When the power of the shift rips the human body apart and transforms it into its new shape, there lives a second, less than a second, a mere shimmer of time when the mind is without a home, no body to call its own. Existence is painless in there, nothing but formlessness beyond understanding. A secret place, it contains nothing but the essence of self, a lost self. In the fire of pain, Colton found a whisper of that place, its ghost, its echo, and from that echo he withdrew a thread of deepest black.”

-Finn Marlowe, A Thread of Deepest Black

“I look at him ready to cry again. Not out of pain. Not out of need. But because his words rub that part of my soul that suffers, that wants to be explored like a virgin land that has remained intact for centuries and craves to be occupied, appreciated and transformed.”

-Aileen Rose, Girl in the Woods

“What turns me on is not what I do to your body, it is what I do to your mind.”

-Dirty Archangel, Lust Is My Favorite Sin: Dirty Archangel

“I knew instantly that I wanted that type of love in my life. [Above all], to have someone I could take care of in every sense and who would trust me to do so. No matter what I asked of them.”

-Breanna Hayse, The Game Plan
