Male dominance, or maledom, refers to BDSM activities where the dominant partner is male.

Maledom scenarios are common in BDSM fiction, including works such as the Story of O and the works of John Norman and Adrian Hunter. Maledom is a growing adult film genre.

Maledom fiction began with the works of the Marquis de Sade who wrote about sexual scenarios in which men tortured others, primarily women. The term "sadism" is derived from de Sade's name. Since then, the lifestyle around male dominance has grown into a large part of the BDSM scene.

Practices of domination common to many BDSM and other various sexual relationships are also prevalent, such as various forms of body worship, cock and ball worship, ass worship, fellatio, foot worship; tease and denial; corporal punishment including spanking, breast torture, caning, whipping; orgasm denial; and as well as verbal humiliation, face slapping, hair pulling, dripping hot wax on the genitals, spitting, golden showers, "forced" chastity, and irrumatio.

A 1995 study indicates that 71% of heterosexual males preferred a dominant-initiator role,[1] and 89% of heterosexual females who are active in BDSM expressed a preference for a submissive role in sexual bondage, also suggesting a preference for a dominant male.[2][3]
