Recently that female-led relationships are discussed almost exclusively in terms of wedded couples. But the phrase is not female-led marriages.
Many men and women date without marrying. Many couples live together without becoming engaged or being wed.
There’s no lack of dominant girlfriends with submissive boyfriends. But their love and sex is usually described in terms of the BDSM scene. Their ‘deviations’ – romantic BDSM – ignores the rhetoric of Venus on Top and Elise Sutton’s works on female domination for the most part.
Interesting how two people who may be passionately in love, she a dominant diva, he wanting to be her compleat slave are content with the older, less sexist form of erotic power exchange.
