About The Book

“If Alicia Zadig is half as good a Domme as she is an author, then she surely leaves her submissives begging for more. Written with erudition, authenticity, and exuberance, Yes, Mistress takes you to the erotic edge and lets you peer into an underground that is fascinating, revelatory, and challenging of the gender assumptions and power dynamics that proliferate in the light of day. And it’s really sexy too!” —Ian Kerner, Sex Therapist and New York Times bestselling author of She Comes First

Discover the forbidden desire for Female Domination—and the real men who seek it out.

Leading Dominatrix and BDSM expert Alicia Zadig takes you on a provocative, eye-opening journey into the erotic world of Female Domination and male submission. Zadig explains the psychology behind male submission and answers the question: Why do men crave surrendering to a dominant woman? Hear from the men themselves as they reveal their most intimate desires.  Learn why so many secretly fantasize about being dominated by a woman. Delve into their experiences with Dominatrices and see what keeps them coming back for more.

Yes, Mistress shines a spotlight on the everyday men who seek to explore their submissive fantasies—an aspect of sexuality that often goes unacknowledged, despite a long history and deep psychological roots. Set at the crossroads of psychology, culture, history, and media, this book challenges society’s perception of BDSM, kink, and fetish. Male submission is more common than you think—and more rewarding than you can imagine!

Yes, Mistress pulls back the curtain on male submissiveness with an insider’s view of what female dominatrices and male submissives are thinking, feeling, and seeking when they engage in one of the most prevalent yet misunderstood forms of erotic play. Boldly guiding us into the heart of those places and moments where fantasies become real, Alicia Zadig reveals that the male desire for submission (and the female desire for dominance) are neither anomalous nor unconventional—they are natural expressions of some of the most fundamental urges of our sexual brain.”

“Just because our conversations about what we like in the bedroom are finally opening up, it doesn’t mean we always understand what our partner really wants—or why. Yes, Mistress is an engaging, extraordinary guide to the mind and motivation of the male submissive while also demystifying the role of the female dominant. Alicia Zadig’s clear and comprehensive writing, brimming with real-life anecdotes and relatable commentary from BDSM practitioners on both sides of the whip, is illuminating for anyone trying to understand the nature of D/s relationships and immensely affirming for those who have such desires and are ready to start exploring.”

“Alicia Zadig explores male submissives, from novelty-seeking sexual adventurers to men seeking profound experiences in suffering and servitude. She does so with the sensitivity of an anthropologist and the confidence of a dominatrix. Ms. Zadig knows these men and their cravings intimately, and her book, Yes, Mistress, offers tantalizing insights into what compels these men to subvert gender scripts.”

– Jane Boon, Ph.D., Author of Edge Play
