Would you consider switching?

Gdom Gdom
Since those that identify as switches already would obviously switch, this question is directed instead at those that identify more rigidly as dominant or submissive. Are there any circumstances under which you would consider switching? If not, does playing that other role actually violate a hard limit or do you just feel that it wouldn't be enjoyable enough to be worth it?

I am a sub, and my partner prefers to be submissive, so we switch for each other

It's not a hard limit for me, but I get no enjoyment or pleasure from dominating. I suck at it and it makes me feel like I'm a kid playing dress up - it's just not who I am.

I like being a sub. My husband is a Dom. We never switch.

I would only consider Domming if I were paid, but only if there were no sex, and what fun would that be? Honestly, I'm not interested in being a Domme, but I like the outfits.

I voted other because I'm not sure I fit any of the above categories.

For me...it really depends on my partner. I like being a submissive, but I really want to be a Dom to a female partner. (I just have a head full of ideas that I like done to me...so I want to do them to another women.)

I could never watch someone in pain. I hate it.
I like the feeling of a crop or a whip in my hand- but I could NEVER hit someone with it.

I am dominant in certain parts of our relationship. We are about equally dominant in the bed.

I'm a sub. I just can't switch, I'm not dom at all and it actually induces panic to have to be dom, lol.

Someone is more than welcome to beat me, and I'll sit and take it. But BDSM is so much more than that, so many mental things, that you would never get from me, it would be boring is what I am saying. SO I say no I would never switch because I would be a crappy sub.

I am a Dom and I would love to switch things up and be dominated but I always end up having the same problem. As soon as they start I lose the mood and begin to imagine how much better I would handle the situation. Slaps feel sloppy, routines seem underwhelming, and everything seems somehow fumbled. I suppose it comes with the territory when I end up with real submissive types.

I'm not even going to bother trying with my newest GF, she can be violent in small doses but she is far from commanding.

I'm already a switch, so it doesn't apply to me. I've never dated anyone who was so set in either a sub or dom role that they never switched at all.

I identify as a switch but I am with a partner right now who I am primarily dominant with. She asked me if she could pierce me the other day and I let her but I don't know if I would do it again. I think it really matters on the partner.

Having had a boyfriend in the past who was submissive, I attempted to switch for him now and then only to find that I wasn't very comfortable in my skin when I was doing it. To me I had to really force a part of me, and it felt almost silly. Where as when I am in the role of submissive I feel more at ease and comfortable.

But I would at least attempt it if that is what my partner wanted, perhaps it didn't work with that boyfriend at the time and it could work with someone else. I try not to say this is the one and only way I can be in a relationship because all of my relationships have been different.

I've been dom so far, but she's interested in trying the switch. It is taking me some mental prep, but I'm going to let her try it

I am a little bit switchy, but a collared submissive who hasn't had the chance to Dominate anyone really.

I think I may be a switch but I've only ever subbed with my partner. I am interested in switching though.

I'm a sub, and I would not switch. I tried once, but it just didn't work at all.

I enjoy switching. It keeps things more interesting.

I enjoy enjoy S/switching with certain people. My sadistic (and occasionally Dominant) side really has to spark with the other person. Otherwise I really have no interest.

I have never found a situation where I would consider switching(I'm a submissive), but I'm not entirely against it.

I'm submissive, and, while I would CONSIDER switching, I don't think I'd be able to.

I am predominately a sub/bottom and have switched in past and had fun. My current significant other has much more experience with bdsm on both sides than I do, but mostly with being a sub, to the point that I feel a bit intimidated to switch for him in anything but a playful manner. Luckily he's fulfilled with our current dynamic and I don't need to do much switching other than some occasional flogging on him, which really is just fun.

Switching is a good change.

I guess I'm other to some extent... I'm a Dom that sometimes bottoms, and sometimes doesn't Dom at all. But I *never* sub. It puts me in a horrible, unhealthy headspace that I don't need to go to ever again.

So, there's a slight possibility that I might sub lightly in some point in the future with a partner that I really, really trust, who is willing to be gentle and careful to deal with my issues, but I would only do it if my partner really, really, really wanted it.
