Lezdom or lesdom is the combination of the words lesbian and domination, used mainly in the lesbian BDSM scene, referring to domination between two female lovers.
The phenomenon is encouraged by feminists, who take pride in giving dominance to women.
The origin of the term is unclear, it first appeared on Urban Dictionary as lezdom in 2007 and during the next year, another entry, titled lesdom was added to the site.
The term probably originates from the end of the 20th century and the begging of the new millennium.
With the porn industry booming, and demands at an all-time high, lesbian on lesbian dominations came onto the screens.
The successes of the LGBT community also aided the birth of the term, by creating a world, where same sex sexuality is not frowned upon as much and people may delve deep into this aspect of nature.
