One of the words referenced in the acronym “BDSM“.

To submit is to give up control. The act of submission, as it pertains to BDSM, is the consensual relinquishing of control to another person, usually (but not always) a dominant. The control can be service or sexually oriented, both, neither. It all depends on the desires of the people involved.

A person who likes to submit to people can fall anywhere on the gender or sexuality spectrum. The level of control a submissive relinquishes to their dominant varies from relationship to relationship, and sometimes from encounter to encounter. Submission may include masochistic play, or it may not. Submission may include bondage, or it may not. Ultimately, what it all boils down to is control, however that manifests for the people involved.
