Collars Differences:

Written from a FemDom perspective;

Collars can be used in a great many ways around BDSM. BDSM Collars can be used to define an entire relationship or signify "ownership". Consensual BDSM Collars are NOT dog collars!!!  More on Collar Differences below.

The most common collar in BDSM is the Commitment Collar. Commitment collars are used to define a commitment to a Dominant such as a Mistress ( or Master, or even BDSM House aka House Collar ) , this is the Top in the relationship, whereas the submissive/bondservant ( sometimes bottom ) Consensually would wear the Commitment collar as a sign of their commitment to that specific Dominant for the duration of the BDSM relationship.  There would also most likely be a Commitment ceremony accompanying the collaring service.

Collaring etiquette - The submissive/ bondservant should request to be accepted by the Mistress or Dominant. Prove to the Collar Owner that they are worthy to wear such an honoured symbol.

Some BDSM Collars can be locked to signify ownership, those that aren’t locked in Commitment Collars should be returned ( NOT Destroyed ) to the original Dominant if the submissive is unsure of the arrangement. ( or even after their betrayal.... )

submissives, BDSM slaves, aka BDSM bondservants can Consent to wear BDSM Collars. Tops or Dominants usually will not wear, but could accessorize to show a mutual commitment to their submissive or bondservant.

BDSM Collars can be used in role play type scenarios called “Scenes”, aka BDSM Scenes, these collars can be worn for the entirety of the Scene then removed, they are unlike Commitment Collars. Usually are returned to the Dominant/ Top at the end of the Scene.

Types of materials used for BDSM Collars are:

  • Leather
  • Multiple types of hides
  • Metal - “Turian” collar
  • Chain Metal
  • Accessories with spikes aka “Wolf Collar”
  • even Wood

 

BDSM Collar History: Initially the Dominant would leather craft or fashion some sort of BDSM Collar which the Top or Dominant would create themselves. The idea of the BDSM Collar was taken from the Old Guard Leather Community
