BDSM 101 — Forced Feminization

by Zandrock

Today we are going to look at forced feminization; we will see what it entails, what the attraction is, and how people commonly enact it.

So, how do you have a forced feminization scene?

Now, each person has their own likes and dislikes when it comes to forced feminization, so I will just talk about the various aspects you might see.

One very common practice is cross-dressing a male, and this can range in the intensity. Sometimes the male just wears female underwear. In pornography, a scene will often start this way; a female will find a male wearing feminine underwear, and then she will force him to adorn more female items. This is just a possible suggestion when you are playing, of course. Then, beyond that, there are actual female clothing articles that can be worn. As I mentioned earlier, forced feminization plays off of stereotypes, so common items here would be maid outfits, schoolgirl outfits, very frilly and pink outfits, corsets, anything Victorian, things you associate with royalty, a princess dress, or a secretary outfit. Some people will then put on makeup, nail polish, wax, and any other cosmetics that a “typical” female might wear. Some people will even buy a wig for this type of play, as it helps them to get a hair style that is similar to that of a female.

The second act that can occur is pegging. Pegging is the act of using a strap-on with a male. You can read my article on pegging if you want more information on this. Butt plugs are also used during this type of play. Also, sometimes in a polygamous relationship, another male is invited to have anal sex with this male. This is because anal sex is typically viewed as a female activity. It's also viewed as a submissive activity because you are the one being penetrated. Again, those statements are not meant to be offensive, but they play off the stereotype that forced feminization uses. This all reinforces the submissive role of the male.

There is also chastity. A male is often connected with his penis, so his sexual prowess is dependent upon his penis. So, locking it up and preventing him from using it is a way of emasculating him. It takes away his power, making him more submissive. There is also some chastity in forced feminization that “plays” to the idea that men are always horny, and, because of it, they are not as smart as women. So, chastity can be a way of getting him to be more reasonable and put together like a woman. If he cannot always fulfill his sexual urges, he can concentrate on being proper, doing tasks, and being a model citizen. There is also chastity that is simply to tease him. The male sub is made so that he cannot use his penis while he is being teased. The dominant female might use a dildo or vibrator on herself in front of him while this is going on. She might also comment on his masculinity, stating how he cannot please her. Anther male might be invited to have sex with her while the forced feminization sub is made to watch. Again, all of these chastity aspects reinforce the D/s aspect of play.

Finally, the male can take on feminine tasks. So, he can cook, clean, wash dishes, etc. He can do any "female job" that will reinforce his role. When he fails to carry out these jobs, corporal punishment can be used. So, he can be bent over your knee and spanked, or he can be caned; anything really can work. It becomes especially authentic if it is anything a male would have used to discipline his wife 100 years ago, though.

These are the most common aspects of forced feminization. As you can see, it is a form of dominance and submission, and it is typically, but not always, done by a male sub and a dominant female by playing on female stereotypes. As always, if you have any questions, or if you have a suggestion for another article on BDSM, just let me know in the comments.
