Financial Domination, though often misunderstood, is both a powerful form of Power Exchange and a valid fetish.
Having a fetish of being financially controlled by a powerful findom is similar to having a foot fetish; just that the subject of the fetish is money instead of an article of clothing or feet. The individuals who participate in the fetish mostly get excitement out of their fetish play. In cases of financial domination, this pleasure, usually occurs when the slave gives money to the owner; feeling helpless under her control. In most cases, the man will have strong a emotion when thinking of giving money to a findom and when he gives tributes. This excitement can last even past that point, lasting days after engaging in this fetish.
In this arrangement usually the giver is a male, the receiver is a female. While there are cases of male dominants participating in the fetish; it is scarce. The financial domination fetish is one where females are considered superior; thus you would rarely find a woman serving a man in this manner.
The payment given is called a tribute. In a well-established relationships, thousands of dollars are involved. Think about it when you’re in a sugar baby / sugar daddy relationship. It takes some time before you start getting serious allowance. A tribute is kinda the same way. In order to start getting the big steady money, it takes time to earn that trust and that domme relationship. Just like other mistress/slave relationships, some financial dominants will form strong bonds with those who serve them over a long period. However, these relationships will be very platonic. While Financial Domination is a sexually charged fetish, that teases and arouses, most findom will not have any sex with their slaves, just as a Professional Dominatrix would not with her clients.
Women participating in this fetish are called goddesses, princesses and even queens. In this power exchange, not only money is exchanged, in many cases, gifts are given as well. This is usually purchased off a wish list. Gifts are so popular because there is a heavy emphasis on pampering and spoiling the Female Dominant. Kinda like some sugar baby / sugar daddy arrangements. Some sugar daddies prefer to pamper and spoil you with gifts, than to give you actual cash / allowance.
This arrangement allows a lady to live a life of absolute luxury while the male suffers and struggles in many ways for her. This is often a big part of financial domination. Time and time again he is expected to surrender and give up, so she can live above her means. After all, in Financial Domination the lady remains a Goddess and Queen, and he is her slave. In most cases, some Ladies specialize in the ruination of the slaves, while others drain more conservatively and with care, knowing that a devastated slave is useless. However, the sheer amount of men who fantasize about being ruined by a powerful and beautiful woman is staggering; however, it is to be kept in mind that for most men, it is only the fantasy of this that appeals to them, not the reality. Only in rare cases does one need and crave the reality of ruination.
Men who are into the fetish usually desire a fair amount of dishonor and exploitation; some prefer heavy forms of Domination, while others like things mild and prefer just to spoil and enhance the life of their Lady; perhaps worshipping her a little on the side. Most of the men participating in the fetish like to be called names such as pay pet, piggy, cash cow and even more. Some even like objectification and being ignored for days on end by their findom. The relationships from the outside may not seem to have any mercy or love attached to them, though some findom fiercely care for their piggy or pay pets; especially those who are with them long term.
Financial Domination is the Exchange of Power where the slave gives up his power and gives it to his Lady by showering her with both gifts and money. After all, can it be difficult to see how this could be such a strong form of power exchange? Money remains the ultimate power in today’s society, and most people consider a man’s worth to be tied up in his possessions and how much money he has. The less a man owns, the more dishonor and humility he feels. This is something that society has engrained in the brain of all. For many reasons, money is the single best means to accomplish fulfilling the desires of a slave. The slave gives up his money and possessions, thus becoming more vulnerable, and the Lady becomes more powerful through the acquisition of wealth and material belongings. Most of those who participate in Financial Domination have both a strong money fetish and many men who are into serving financially or being financially exploited also crave humiliation.
Although Financial Domination is practiced only online, a few individuals have been known to do this in Real Time too; in the forms of shopping sprees, money exploitation, and other various forms. Face to face Financial Domination is very rare. Since it is commonly practiced online, there are a lot of individuals who get into the fetish merely for fast cash. So the internet remains the primary medium.
This is a very dynamic fetish, but it is misunderstood. One has to understand that everyone is wired differently, and human sexuality is not a case of white and black. Furthermore, you need to realize that many of these men are married, middle to upper class, and educated men. So if you’re looking for a new honey pot to find your next pay pig, or you want to start promoting your domme services, take a look at the affair site Ashley Madison. While you won’t get a ton of responses in the findom world, the ones you do get, are pretty legit.
