The term mythology sometimes refers to the study of myths and sometimes refers to a body of myths. For example, comparative mythology is the study of connections between myths from different cultures, whereas Greek mythology is the body of myths from ancient Greece.
The term "myth" is often used colloquially to refer to a false story; however, the academic use of the term generally does not refer to truth or falsity. In the field of folkloristics, a myth is conventionally defined as a sacred narrative explaining how the world and humankind came to be in their present form. Many scholars in other academic fields use the term "myth" in somewhat different ways. In a very broad sense, the term can refer to any traditional story.
Most mythology is based on a pre-Christian belief in a hierarchy of nature-related gods and goddesses. In BDSM/spanking culture, the title "goddess" is sometimes adopted by a female dominant (dominatrix, domme, etc.), particularly in sessions where her submissive performs various acts of tribute, worship, and subjugation.
Definition and practice
The term dominatrix, unlike domme, usually implies that the person is a professional dominant, also known as a pro-domme.
