Although the term "dominatrix" was not used, the classic example in literature of the female dominant-male submissive relationship is portrayed in the 1870 novella Venus in Furs by Austrian writer Leopold von Sacher-Masoch.
The term masochism was later derived from the author's name by Richard von Krafft-Ebing in the latter's 1886 forensic study Psychopathia Sexualis.
The history of the dominatrix is argued to date back to rituals of the Goddess Inanna (or Ishtar as she was known in Akkadian), in ancient Mesopotamia.
As far back as the 1590s, flagellation within an erotic setting is recorded.
The profession features in erotic prints of the era, such as the British Museum mezzotint "The Cully Flaug'd" (c.
1674–1702), and in accounts of forbidden books which record the flogging schools and the activities practised.
A dominatrix (plural dominatrixes or dominatrices) or mistress is a woman who takes the dominant role in BDSM activities.
A dominatrix might be of any sexual orientation, but her orientation does not necessarily limit the genders of her submissive partners.
