What is a degradee?
A degradation receiver (degradee) gets turned on by being humiliated, degraded and/or embarrassed in a sexual or kink context. This is a consensual activity where both parties enjoy this play and have strict rules and boundaries in place. A degradation receiver is more than likely going to be a submissive.
Degradation receivers find being treated in such a way, as a person’s property, to be very arousing. They may enjoy being objectified too. Actually used as a piece of furniture for their Dominant to use or just talked about in a way you wouldn’t talk about another human being in everyday conversation. They may enjoy being ignored or ordered around too.
Which BDSM archetype matches well with a degradee?
Degradees match up with degradation givers (degraders) as they understand the sexual arousal involved. Other Dominants might be a little hesitant to use humiliation and embarrassment as for other submissives these activities would be hard limits. For degradation receivers, they find being humiliated a way to feel intense submission. They like to feel secondary to the degradation giver as part of their submission.
What is BDSM degradation and humiliation play?
BDSM humiliation play can take many different forms. It can involve being called names, being instructed to take off all your clothes in front of others, being ejaculated or urinated on or physical belittlement. Such as small penis humiliation for male identifying degradation receivers.
Degradation can be private or public. It is a practice that needs to be handled sensitively if practised outside of the BDSM scene or safety of your own home, as it can look like abusive behaviour if not understood as being a BDSM act between two consensual adults. However, acts of degradation such as being ‘made’ to strip off or to do certain acts in front of people can be indulged in at BDSM events where people understand what is going on.
