Elise Sutton

Naturally since female supremacist Elise Sutton is credited with creating the term any site dealing with Loving Female Authority must make reference to her.

Quite possibly Sutton is the most influential woman in the history of female domination. Her book Female Domination was the first widely available work on what is often called Femdom. (Though some would say that the best thing about the book is the Sardax cover.)

Sutton attempted to validate her espousal of female superiority through the use of anecdotes, sociological speculation and dubious bits of history. Aping scholarship without achieving it.

At the time of the books release Female Domination was a great awakening for many women (and a source of countless fantasies for even more men.) Commentary on her second book has remained skimpy.

Since many dominant women find her depictions of female domination and male submission not very loving her influence has waned in recent times. Works by Janet Hardy, Claudia Varrin and Midori – aside from authors of leather and general D/s texts – provide more appealing and useable examples of power exchange within romantic partnerships.

How do you feel about it, what do you think?

    Elise sutton’s form of Domination is very shallow and stinks of a Caste System to Me. Anyone who was involved with her should unlearn most of what she teaches and start again to build a relationship worth having!

    I’ve been on Her site and I agree with Her. I’d like to find a Wife like that, absolutely! Do I believe in Female Superiority? Laugh if you want, but yes, yes I do!! I’m anxious to submit to a strong, intelligent, beautiful Woman. It’s sure the way I was brought up.

    Elise Sutton’s approach to bdsm has nothing to do with a loving, mutually fulfilling relationship. Her style is a way of trying to pass off greed and laziness as d/s. A d/s relationship is still a relationship. Relationships involve respect, compromise, and oh yeah, love. She shoves all that aside in favor of housework and protocol.

    I disagree first of all that her book was the first widely available one on female domination. There have been several in print that I am aware of years before hers came out.

    Second, I’d be surprised to see any evidence that it was a great awakening for many women. I think her site is primarily masturbation fuel for neurotic male submissives. Even a cursory consideration of her ideas on female supremacy contradict all objective sense of reality. Female domination websites are loaded with submissive men whining that they can’t find a woman to dominate them or that their partner doesn’t understand their needs. Even when they do get a partner to take a dominant role, they complain that “she’s not really into it.” That’s because most women want a man to be a man. Most women that do get involved in female domination are inwardly sighing and just trying to make their man happy.

    I agree that it seems that Elise Sutton seems more geared to sub males fantasizing being controlled by a Dominant Woman than to Dommes themselves. I have dominant girlfriends who find many of her ideas unworkable in real life. I am glad she’s out there however, if at least to bring the subject more to the masses, as she is quite popular .

    I voted for, or should i say spanked this post on http://www.fetspank.

    Thanks! Great blog

    Honestly, what is it about femdom sexuality that seems to make people feel qualified to speak on behalf of “most men” or “most women”?

    I am behind Her most of the way.What She has to say about establishing a Matriarchy and about sexuality are spot on.So She understands male sexuality.That does not mean that She panders to it.
    Where we might differ is that She comes from a slightly conservative Christian beleif system which I find at odds with Her thoughts and espousing of a Matriarchal future and Female Led lifestyle.

    Like it or not, we’re seeing a shift toward female-led relationships. My recent issue of Domino magazine (a main-stream home decor magazine) has a washing machine ad with a woman standing next to the machine and a caption that says, “look at all the buttons he’ll get to play with.”

    CSI, Desparate Housewives, Nip/Tuck and many other shows are using characters and story lines to start to break down the taboo and show females exerting their natural sexual dominance over men. My site jeanagirl.com is very popular with men in general and my chastity device key holder services are in demand. I enjoy the power I have and I use the power. I don’t make excuses and I don’t feel bad about making men want me. If they want to buy me things, do my laundry, bring me wine and rub my feet, that’s up to them.

    Yes, Elise is a true sexist and female supremacisist. She lists many articles on her site in regard to the proper and rightful decline of men and the establishment of a matriarchy or complete female domination of men. I’ve also seen her work published in anti-male hate circles and radical gender feminist groups as well. She is clearly an ill individual…

    Jeana,

    I was going to visit your site at jeanagirl.com, but it is closed. Did it move? I love Sutton’s views, and Ingrid Bellemare’s.

    Elise Sutton has been and still is ahead of her time. She figured out the true dynamic between men and women and time keeps confirming her observations! That is why many males, such as one of the above commentators, feel threatened! Men are losing control, rapidly. What men don’t know is that the future takeover by women is good for the men too.

    In 2004 I gave my wife her book and a chastity device. We were already in an FD relationship but the book, combined with permanent chastity brought a new dimension to our life-style.

    My wife would admit that Elise’s book made her more confident in her role and I as submissive I have to admit that because of the book my wife started to make this relationship more about what she wants out of it and less about what my needs are.

    Therefore our D/s relationship got deeper. My wife does now what she wants and because of that I’m forced to be even more submissive, even when it doesn’t suit me. That is true submission.

    ansi tutto tu devi piacere lei e lei a te.Voi avete le tete e il culo e noi sbabachiamo dietro vuoi.En vecie di dominare in manera confusa e stupida come gia lo fatte,che crea soltanto litigio e corna,dominatelo per completo e saremo tutti piu felici.

    Female domination is clearly the future whether you think it is right or wrong, Elise Sutton is right. You may call her a sexist, a feminist, or whatever else, but it doesn’t detract from the fact that she is right.

  15. name says

    “Sutton attempted to validate her espousal of female superiority through the use of anecdotes, sociological speculation and dubious bits of history.”

    That’s all sociological speculation ever is – speculation, thinking things out. Elise Sutton takes the long view and engages analyis. Undoubtedly she is correct.

    more appealing to women, perhaps. but for a relationship to work (that is, a relationship that includes a man), there has to be something in it for the man too. and submissive men tend to include much harder, edgier, crueler treatment in their definition of what is loving, desirable, and desired, than do women. it can be very frustrating and lead one to feel rather hopeless, being a submissive male in a country where, despite their lip-service to the contrary, most women still seem to think they must be – and that all men want them to be – sugar and spice and everything nice (and often minus the spice).

    while I disagree with some aspects of her approach, I think Elise Sutton is a lot more in touch with submissive men’s much broader definitions of what constitutes love than most women are.

    Do not see how anyone can deny the amount of role-reversal inn the last 50 years, or the geometric acceleration of it in the last two decades.
