There is not a single country in the world today whose top political position is held by a woman. Although, during the last decade, women have entered fields previously barred to them, men still monopolize the key positions in government, industry and military institutions. The questions remain: Are there innate biological harriers that prevent women trom attaining equal power? Or, is there something built into the human male that makes it more natural for him to command females than for females to command him?
These are women whose music tops charts across the world, whose dollar sales are well into seven figures and, perhaps most importantly, who understand that a music career can amount to more than just singing songs. Jennifer Lopez acts in major films and appears on American Idol. And all of them help sell whichever publication puts them on its cover. But — and this may seem a silly question — why now?
A dominatrix might be of any sexual orientation, but her orientation does not necessarily limit the genders of her submissive partners. The role of a dominatrix may not even involve physical pain toward the submissive; her domination can be verbal, involving humiliating tasks, or servitude. A dominatrix is typically a paid professional pro-domme as the term dominatrix is little-used within the non-professional BDSM scene. The term domme is likely a coined pseudo-French feminine inflection of the slang dom short for dominant.
