Capitalization In Kink

It is traditional, particularly in online spaces, for folks to use lowercase when referring to submissive roles and upper case when referring to Dominant roles. For example - D/s (Dominance and submission) is frequently written with the "D" as a capital letter and the "s" as a lowercase letter to symbolise the power exchange.

This style is also used by some people in a D/s dynamic when communicating via text, with the submissive capitalizing You when referring to their Dominant and i when referring to themselves in messages.
