- For one person to have power over the other
- Often non-sexual situation of a dominatrix holding power over a sub, for games of abuse, belittling, spanking, whipping, and so on.
Sub section is Light Domination, where one partner in a sex scene is slightly more powerful than the other and generally tells the other person what to do. This ranges from the slightly abusive "Suck my dick bitch" to spanking, mild bondage, and so on.
Domination is part of porn, but not all domination involves sex.
