Financial domination is not only the objective of the alt right (at least for the purpose of this story). Read closely and don’t judge. Some people actually really get off on this fetish—and you may end up being one of them.

According to Master Fetish Trainer Jasmine, financial domination (FinDom) is a form of sexual and psychological play that involves two parties (a financial dominant and financial submissive). The submissive receives pleasure—from mental highs to sexual arousal—by worshipping his or her “dom” via bestowing financial gifts and services. But that’s not all. Those who are really freaky may elect to become a “financial hostage,” which means this person willingly gives access to his or her personal accounts to the dom and agrees to be punished financially when they’re naughty. Right now you’re probably thinking that financial subs spend sex-filled days and nights getting off thanks to a dom. Well, you’re wrong. Participants of this fetish often opt for no sexual intercourse. Apparently the men (and a few women) who enjoy serving as financial subs are so paid (Read: rich) that they’ve already squirted on and in whomever they’ve desired. These folks are literally paying to be told no. “Financial subs are typically high-powered men, who make substantial amounts of money but find their identities and value are connected to their titles. Giving that up authority is powerful,” says Jasmine.

So, if you’re thinking financial dominants simply sit around and stack dough, you’re actually kind of on the money. Still, there are some rules. Here are a few of the parameters Jasmine suggests if you’re ready to explore.

1 Financial dominants and submissives should iron out a contract detailing the boundaries of their exchanges. Common provisions include secrecy (some subs are married or in committed relationships), limits on gift giving (ex. cars, homes, stipends, etc…), the dynamics of servitude and worship (ex. a sub may be required to handle tasks such as setting up and paying for the dom’s vacation with a third party) and more.

2 Doms and subs have to iron out the “how’s” of compensation. There are even special accounts set up, widely referred to as “piggy banks,” that allow subs to deposit funds with ease.

 

3 Last, and perhaps most importantly, doms cannot demand or accept gifts that are beyond the sub’s financial means. This is part of the reason this setup is not exploitation. The submissive gives because he (she) wants to and can afford to cater to his (her) fetish as an indulgence.

“Financial subs are typically high-powered men, who make substantial amounts of money but find their identities and value are connected to their titles. Giving that up authority is powerful.”

Interested in adding finances into your fetish? Here are some ways to find out if you’re ready to play:

  • You want to be commanded by a dominant or command others as a dominant.
  • You are looking to find a new way to be useful to women (or men).
  • You receive great pleasure from extreme gift-giving without a return, or you receive great pleasure in giving directives and receiving gifts.
  • You believe a great deal of your identity is derived from your financial status.
  • You want to be taken advantage of financially, with the goal of transferring power and authority.
