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.
