This quote about the behaviour of cult leaders applies equally well to so-called femdom goddesses, humiliatrixes, and purveyors of POV humiliation videos:
"Shame is the currency of cults and their leaders. The human potential for shame, to feel not good enough, bad or unworthy, is what cult leaders exploit. These traumatizing narcissists instill shame in their followers, using belittling, intimidation and humiliation, alternating these with displays of love and acceptance, in such a way as to convince the follower that their only hope for redemption, for staying in favor and not losing favor, is submission."
"For traumatizing narcissists to hold on to their followers, they have to attack the followers’ subjectivity to keep them from having their own independent minds, their own view of the world. The follower must be influenced to forsake their own intuition, morals and values, in any way in which they do not conform to the leader’s. Though followers typically believe they are voluntarily embracing the leader’s vision, the reality is that they are coercively manipulated to abandon their own subjectivity and submit to the leader, via the traumatizing narcissist’s triumvirate of abusive behaviors: intimidation, belittling, and humiliation."
