FemDom

Femdom, or female dominance, refers to BDSM activities where the dominant partner is female. A female dominant is sometimes called a domme  femdomme or domina. In the English speaking world, "Mistress" is by far the most common dominatrix title, while in most of continental Europe, the most common title is "Maitresse" or "Domina." The most common dominatrix title in the Spanish language is "Ama." The equivalent Japanese term is 女王様 (joōsama, or queen.)

A dominatrix (from the Latin dominatrix, meaning a female ruler or mistress) or mistress is a woman who takes the dominant role in bondage and discipline, domination and submission or sado-masochistic sexual practices, which are commonly abbreviated as BDSM. The male equivalent is master. A common form of address for a submissive to a dominatrix is "Mistress", "Ma'am" or "Maîtresse". Note that a dominatrix does not necessarily dominate a male partner; a dominatrix may well have a female submissive.

The term "Domme"  is a coined pseudo-French female variation of the slang Dom (short for dominant). There is confusion on its pronunciation, with some pronouncing it identically to Dom and some pronouncing the final e as a second syllable, e.g. saying dom-MAY or DOM-may. The correct pronunciation is identical to Dom, by analogy to one-syllable French-derived words like femme or blonde.  This is most commonly is used as away to distinguish online whether or not one is speaking about a female dominant or male dominant
