Kinkly Glossary Term: Collar

Kinkly Entry

A collar is a restraint that is sometimes placed around the neck of submissive partners in BDSM play. It is not uncommon for dominants to wear them as well. Often, submissive partners that regularly wear collars are referred to as being “collared.” At times, formal collaring ceremonies are held. These ceremonies can be likened to wedding ceremonies, with the collar being nearly equivalent to a wedding ring, as they signify the start of a special relationship between a Dominant and a submissive.

 

Wikipedia Term: Collar (BDSM)

Wikipedia Entry

In a BDSM context, a collar is a device of any material worn by a person around the neck to indicate their submissive or slave status in a BDSM relationship. A person wearing a collar to symbolize their relationship with another is said to be collared. Some people conduct formal “collaring ceremonies,” which are regarded as effectively solemnizing their relationship in a similar way as a marriage ceremony and the collar having similar significance as a wedding ring. The standard form of a collar is a black leather band around the neck, often with metal D-rings added to allow the attachment of a leash, rope or other restraints; but to be more discreet in public, some people may wear an ordinary choker or jewellery necklace for the same symbolic purpose.

Collars may be used in role-playing games involving erotic humiliation because they have connotations of control and pet-like status, especially when worn with a leash.
