190 Submissive Punishment Ideas for Every Occasion

Here are 190 BDSM punishments you can use for nearly every dominant/submissive situation. Whether you are a hardcore Dom with several slaves or you simply role play with your partner, I’ve laid out dozens of punishments for your Submissive. And when we’re finished, please feel free to comment with your BDSM punishment ideas!

Rules and Safety in BDSM Punishment

Before implementing any type of BDSM punishment, remember the rules and safety that go hand-in-hand in a dominant/submissive relationship.

Discuss Activities and Punishments

Entering into any type of BDSM relationship requires you to discuss activities and punishments. First, you must discuss how far you are willing to go. That includes sex (or no sex), the types of activities in which you’re willing to participate and punishments you’re willing (or not) to do. Then, move on to the next and most important step; the safe word.

Safe Words and BDSM

Having safe words during consensual BDSM play is crucial. Many times, a willing participant may not be prepared for what they previously consented to. In that case, a safe word is used to stop the activity immediately. Additionally, a safe word is important if you are feeling any unusual pain or discomfort. Finally, the safe word is just as important for the Dom to respect as it is for the Sub to use to stop any activity.

Safe, Sane and Consensual

Safe, Sane Consensual BDSM

SSC, or safe, sane and consensual, represents the safety of BDSM activities as well as being mentally able to consent to those activities. If at any time you feel your Dom or Submissive are not mentally capable of accepting this type of play, it’s time to stop it immediately. Furthermore, BDSM play, including submissive punishments, should be done in a safe manner.

Finally, consent is key to any sexual and non-sexual act. Sure, you may have gained your Submissive’s consent in the beginning. However, they are allowed to change their mind at any time, regardless of the activity taking place and their prior consent.

Risk Aware Consensual Kink

RACK, or risk aware consensual kink, illustrates that kinky activities are inherently risky, which means they usually aren’t entirely safe. Therefore, you must be aware of those risks in order to consent to said kinky activities. So, before consenting to anything, be sure you know all about BDSM play as well as discussing everything with your partner or Dom beforehand.

And remember, this risk doesn’t simply include physical hazards. It includes emotional, mental and of course, risks of raising eyebrows and possible police involvement when implementing any punishments in a public space. In that case, it’s best to stick to familiar establishments that embrace the lifestyle.

Now that the important aspects are out of the way, and hopefully noted, let’s get to the list of BDSM punishment ideas!
