What is humiliation play?

Consensual humiliation play is a powerful yet often misunderstood aspect of BDSM. Simply stated, it's any kind of activity in which one person says or does something that causes feelings of embarrassment, shame, or humiliation in the other. This can be something as simple as "dirty talk," for example by using terms like "slut" or "bitch" to refer to your partner. It can also be as complex as creating situations that are embarrassing to your partner, like exposing them in front of others, making them crawl around while on a leash, public scolding and discipline, etc.

So in essence humiliation is about power play - feeling powerless, or making someone else feel powerless. When done ethically, humiliation can build a person's mental strength, provide catharsis and raise self-esteem even as it takes away that person's power during the play. Being objectified and appreciated as a piece of art, or interrogated about things like fantasies that have never been shared with others, make for great humiliation scenes that can empower the bottom in many ways long after a scene is finished.

Humiliation play is different from most types of play because it plays mainly with emotions. Different people have different emotional triggers, so the range of activities considered to be humiliation play is huge. What one person finds embarrassing, another person might not react to at all to. Humiliation play is mostly about the feelings it produces, not just the activities themselves.
