For example, the submissive person might serve the dominant one food, or give them a massage; the dominant person might order the submissive one around or restrain them or punish them in some way; people might act out particular power-based role-plays such as teacher and student, cop and robber, or pirate and captive.Some people who are into D/s might have longer periods, such as a holiday, where they maintain their power dynamic.
And a few have lifestyle or 24/7 arrangements, where one person always takes the dominant, and the other the submissive, role.
However, even in such cases much of their everyday life will probably not seem that different to anybody else’s.
However, it should be remembered that most vanilla relationships have specific roles (e.g.
one person takes more responsibility for the finances, one person is more outgoing socially, one person does more of the looking after, one person takes the lead in sex).
So, for example, there may be limits about the kinds of activities and sensations people like, whether they enjoy role-play or not, and which aspects of the relationship will have a D/s element.

Seems like a lot of folks come to my website looking for information on dominant and submissive relationships. You might also find it useful to check out some more posts I did about the same topic when the 50 Shades movie came out: Why do people sometimes prefer Dom/sub relationships?Some D/s relationships would look very much like a vanilla relationship but just with a bit more power-play involved when people have sex.Others would have something of the D/s dynamic in other parts of the relationship.In D/s relationships those things tend to be more explicit, but perhaps not hugely different.
