Ego reduction

From Spanking Art

Ego reduction means the lessening of someone's ego or sense of self-worth, to achieve a greater humility.

Relating to Sigmund Freud's concept of the ego to describe the conscious adult self, ego reduction broadly describes the deflating of an over-inflated or egotistical sense of oneself.

Ego reduction is also found as a way of attaining religious humility, for example in Buddhism.

In BDSM[edit]

In BDSM, successful ego reduction is a good way to induce entry to bottom space. It is most easily achieved by humiliation.

Care is needed, because excessive ego reduction means destroying the other person's self-respect, self-confidence, and ability to think independently. Some aftercare may be needed after an effective session.
