In some ways this page has become a kind of index, with many links to other pages, Discipline covers many different activities, and can be dished out in a lot of different ways.

The Dictionary would describe it this way;-

dis·ci·pline [dis-uh-plin]
training to act in accordance with rules; drill: military discipline.
activity, exercise, or a regimen that develops or improves a skill; training: A daily stint at the typewriter is excellent discipline for a writer.
punishment inflicted by way of correction and training.
the rigor or training effect of experience, adversity, etc.: the harsh discipline of poverty.
behavior in accord with rules of conduct; behavior and order maintained by training and control: good discipline in an army.

In a fetish context, the term "Discipline" describes the use of psychological Restraints, with the use of rules and punishment to create control over behavior, generally Discipline would be one of the main Domination activities of a Dom or Domme.
Other forms of Discipline could include Erotic Sexual Denial, some Domme's/Doms might even force Gang Bangs or Bukkake sessions on a CONSENTING Sub. Gags may also be incorporated into the Discipline activity. Some Subs that enjoy Discipline may well have a Humiliation Fetish, or even act as Human ponies, there is also the possibility of a Kidnap fantasy being linked to a Discipline fetish, as well as Male Chastity/Chastity. Masochism may also play a roll, as well as a Mistress/Slave relationship. Discipline could also take in other things, for example Blindfolds, possibly even Corsetry, the list would be as endless as someone's imagination. Other pages worth checking out, with information that could be incorporated into a Discipline context could be Humiliation Fetish, Sadism, Slavery, Submission, Subspace, S & M and of course Whips.

The "Punishment" or Psychological Restraints can take the form of pain caused a physical activity, (such as caning), humiliation caused psychologically (such as a public flagellation) or loss of freedom caused physically (for example, chaining the submissive partner to the foot of a bed).

It is VERY important that the person who is receiving the Discipline has made clear their limitations to the person who is inflicting the Discipline, sometimes things can become highly extreme, but things still meed to be within clear limitations. "Safe words" could also be of use.
