* ''Film/WalkAllOverMe'' is about a CountryMouse girl who decides to impersonate her roommate, who works part-time as a dominatrix. Naturally, all bondage-focused scenes feature either woman as the dominant over the submissive male client.

Another part of this trope is the implication that all men secretly desire to be dominated and all women secretly desire to dominate. This adds to the comedy since it is a reversal of traditional roles and consequently, as the contradiction easily lends itself to pop psychology leading some to propound that at least this part of the trope is TruthInTelevision [[note]] It has been seen that many men in powerful positions who are into BDSM prefer to be a sub at least part of the time. With powerful women, this is even more common. Demographically speaking, though, studies have found that between 65-70% of men in the BDSM community prefer to be, or are exclusively, dominant.[[/note]]

If you want to know what we're talking about then, quick, think of the last time you saw BDSM portrayed in someway on popular television. What position was the man in? He was wearing a ball-gag and being dragged around by a collar and chain, you say? Well then, you've just encountered this trope. [[AllWomenArePrudes Only slightly less common]] are women in BDSM, and without even checking you can't deny that ''they're'' never the ones tied to a bedpost and being whipped. Well, not unless it's an outright porno. If there was a woman involved, she was a dominatrix, without exception. Men might be in a dominant role, but only if they are dominating another man because AllMenArePerverts and because [[DoubleStandardRapeMaleOnMale rape isn't nearly as stigmatized when it's male on male]].

* In ''{{Webcomic/Sunstone}}'', the main couple of the comic are Allison and Lisa, who are in a dom/sub relationship. The other couple, however, inverts this trope, with Alan, Ally's friend, as a dom and Anne as his sub. Ally and Alan also used to be FriendsWithBenefits and took turns between the two roles, though this didn't work out well as both of them prefer the dom role ("our aftercare consisted of critiquing each other's performnce").

** Like many {{police procedural}}s, ''Castle'' played the trope straight in an episode where the victim-of-the-week is a sociology [=PhD=] student studying BDSM [[spoiler:by becoming a dom]]. But it did feature a hilarious example when ''Beckett'' interrogated a suspect using dom psychology.

But it did feature domme. Her female boss at the dungeon is also a hilarious example domme. Also played for laughs when ''Beckett'' interrogated a suspect client of the dungeon using dom psychology.

* ''SexAndTheCity'' dealt with BDSM several times, only once was a woman the submissive. Even that fell into the trope however, as Miranda's dominant boyfriend was just a complete asshole and the show treated his bedroom behavior as an extension of that.

* Enforced in ''Literature/{{Tasakeru}},'' as it's actually a religeous tennant for Skunks. Their Death god ([[HijackedByJesus read: Satan expy]]) offered to be a sub for the Nameless One. Her sisters were ''horrified'' and cast her out of heaven, imbuing her with poison so she could never love again.
