Elise Sutton examines the prevalent male desire to be dominated by a woman. She explores from a psychological perspective why men have submissive desires toward the female gender, where these desires originate from, and how this common male fantasy reflects what is transpiring within society, as women are becoming more liberated and independent. Elise reveals that Female Domination is a large tent with many forms, expressions and lifestyles contained therein.

Elise takes the reader into the personal and intimate lives of forty couples, who are not unlike your family members, the people you work with or the people you socialize with, yet who practice different variations of the Female Domination lifestyle. Some couples like Female Domination to be soft and sensual, some like it hard and rough, some like it wild and trend setting, some like it romantic, some like it untraditional, some like it primarily in the bedroom, and some like it both inside and outside the bedroom.

Through the experiences of others, Elise depicts how the Female Domination lifestyle can build a bond of intimacy, defuse arguments, relieve stress, transport sex to a higher level than just the physical, empower women in society, and inject excitement into the mundane tasks of life such as household chores. Elise portrays how Female Domination can satisfy the inner male child, build up a woman's self-esteem, add spice to the bedroom, re-ignite romance, and cause a power exchange within the female/male relationship. Elise Sutton examines how society is evolving toward Female rule, one relationship at a time.

"Female Domination" discusses some intense and controversial sexual practices. "Female Domination" will no doubt arouse, titillate, shock and challenge. However, it is Elise's hope that above all, it will enlighten and educate.

Here are a few reviews:

"Finally, a FemDom book done right! After an exhaustive search for quality literature involving female dominance in marriages, I have finally found it. Although not focused entirely on married couples, I appreciated the book's attention to FemDom marital relationships. Not only does the author explain why men seek dominance in relationships, she very effectively explains how to achieve it. I recommend it as useful reading for both men and women. Whether you're in a FemDom relationship, seeking one, or have been asked to become your mate's FemDom, this book is perhaps the most informative I've read.

It is also fun to read. It is much more then a 'how to manual.' It is entertaining. I particularly enjoyed how real life interviews with couples are used to demonstrate concepts. Those interviews were not only insightful; they give the reader a number of ideas for dominance techniques. The book is well thought out. Because it covers so many topics (i.e. discipline, humiliation, feminization, chastity, etc.) the book is sure to appeal to you on some level, if not several levels. Buy the book, but be careful! Once your lady reads this one, things may never be the same!" (review from Barnes and Noble website)


The all-time best selling book published by Lulu Press.  "There are 447 books for sale on Amazon that list Lulu Press, Inc., as the publisher. The best-selling tome is "Female Domination" by Elise Sutton. Yes, it is an instruction manual, couple with psychology-speak about why men desire to be dominated by women both in and out of the bedroom.” ( Tina Gasperson, NewsForge)


"This is an important book that delves into the fascinating and misunderstood world of Female Domination. Written by a practicing psychologist, this work provides crucial insights into the mentality and attitudes that drive this alternative lifestyle. The author arrives at several key conclusions of the origins, development and long-term practice of why and how significant numbers of men yearn then continue to worship a dominant woman, as well as what goes on within these special women themselves. She cites little known truths of Christianity whereby Female Domination is quite compatible with scripture, as well as identifying contemporary trigger points for men who wake up to their own deep stirrings of wanting to submit to a woman.

Her literary references to back up her opinion of women as the superior sex are ample and solid. But this is not a feminist diatribe. Elise Sutton is clearly influenced by a deep love for men and a desire to see them at their best. Indeed the sub-title of the book is `An exploration of the male desire for Loving Female Authority'. She makes it clear that a submissive male must not see himself as a wimp. The male has every right, duty even, to be strong in his affairs and strong for his Lady. The author eloquently and, yes, romantically states: `The man should be his Queen's friend, partner, lover, servant and slave. A woman needs all of this in a man'.

The author uses some 40 case studies to back up her work. Every major strand of the lifestyle is examined including role reversal, leather sex, cuckolding, feminization, disciplining versus punishment, strap-on play, humiliation play, age regression, male chastity, and fetishes. The author emphasizes that Female Domination is a big tent: There are many practices that find a home here but there is no obligation to undertake all of them. This is a well thought out piece of work that will offer reassurance and direction to those who need help to work out their inner most thoughts and feelings. It will hopefully go on to be a ground breaking philosophy for revitalizing relationships between men and women, and offer a sound foundation for the rejuvenation of family life." (JGW from the UK)


"Educational and Erotic! The best book I've read about D&S! For those of us interested in Female Dominance and male submission within caring and loving relationships, this is the book we've been waiting for. There have been lots of books written about BDSM, D&S and FemDom but this is by far the best. Psychologist Elise Sutton interviews real couples who practice this alternative sexual lifestyle and shares their experiences. This is not a fantasy book but a true exploration of the Female Domination lifestyle as it is practiced in reality.

Ms Sutton has an incredible gift in being able to explain why men desire to be dominated and how a man's fetish and sexual desires reflect what is happening within our society as women are becoming more independent and liberated. Ms Sutton also is able to explain to the female reader how her male partner's desire to be dominated can empower her and be beneficial to her.

She takes a look at such FemDom practices as spankings, discipline, forced feminization, strap-on play, cuckolding, female body worship, male chastity and leather sex. This book is very educational and as she shares the real experiences of real couples, the book also becomes quite sexy and erotic.

Ms Sutton's knowledge about these subjects is incredible. She gets into the minds of those who desire FemDom and explains why so many men want to be sexually dominated by a woman. She approaches if from the psychological as well as the social. She draws the clear conclusion that society is evolving toward female dominance and female authority. Her research to support her thesis is based on mainstream research that is hard to deny. "

"Ms Sutton, I ordered the PDF format and printed it out for my wife. I only gave her the preface, introduction, and the first five chapters to see how she would react. My wife loved it and wanted to read the rest. She said that she now understands why I need to be dominated. She plans on performing your Psychoanalysis on me tomorrow night. Thank you for this important book" - J. T.

"A Masterpiece of Eroticism"

"It is no small achievement to write about such unusual sexual practices in a way that a novice can understand without being offended or overwhelmed. Elise Sutton pulls this off magnificently with this book.

She takes the reader by the hand and leads him to explore this alternative lifestyle with intelligence and grace. She does not smack the reader across the face with her controversial philosophy but instead she builds a solid foundation of scientific evidence with a strong blend of popular culture to set the reader at ease while also piquing the reader’s curiosity to venture deeper into this subject.

The actuality that the stories which are related to the reader are of authentic people only hastens the sexual characteristics of this book. It is a mesmerizing journey into the sexuality of ordinary people who live extraordinary private lives.

If the female reader harbors any dominant attitudes toward men, she might be converted into a full fledge female supremacist by the time she has completed this work. Similarly, if even the faintest flicker of sexual submission resides within the male reader, it will be a burning inferno by the time he is finished reading this book. The remainder will delight in countless erotic dreams." (Joshua - Amazon.com)
