Naturally sexually submissive wife and naturally sexually submissive husband. They both want to respond to the other in bed… and not a lot really hot happens. So they’re cursed with “not that hot” forever right?
Dominance and submission are not monolithic sexual orientations from which there is no escape. Men do tend toward dominance, women toward submission, but few of us are hard-wired for 100% one or the other. There’s no requirement to be sexually dominant all the time if you’re a man, or sexually submissive if you’re a woman.
In addition to that, being sexually dominant and submissive are skills that you can learn. Some of the best dominants are actually wired submissive, they instinctively know what makes a submissive tick because they are one.
Sometimes the way you respond and please your partner the way they most enjoy, is by acting sexually dominant toward them. So if he’s a natural submissive, and she really gets off by having her hair pulled and her ass smacked, or having her head gently pushed down into giving him a blowjob, then by doing all that dominant stuff… he’s being a great submissive.
So yeah, some of this gets confusing. Who is the top again? Who is bottom? After a while it starts looking like quantum physics is a mental warm up to discussing D/s.
The key thing to learn and experiment with is that there can be power exchanges in sex that make things vastly more enjoyable for both of you. If you discover you’re both submissive… then take turns being the one getting bossed about and made to do stuff. I mean you’re both submissive right? Can’t the two of you get along?
