A Dominant, or dom, is the person of power or authority/control in a Power exchange relationship who practices some form of Domination, whether it be physical, mental, emotional, spiritual domination, or a combination. The term can also be used to describe someone with a series of dominant personality traits.

In general usage, the word Dom is a short, gender non-specific replacement for the word Dominant. "Domme" (usually pronounced "dough-may") has come to indicate a female Dominant.
