A leathergirl is a specific name for a submissive (s-type) in the Leather Community and falls under the D/S category in BDSM. While similar to other submissive roles, being a girl has its nuances. 

The girl may eventually become a Mommy and have Their own (s-Type) girl, or they remain a girl for their entire Leather journey. In the meantime, the girl will learn how to be a Leatherperson. They will learn what their kinks are, how to provide Service, what’s expected of them both while in dynamics and in the leather Community.  While a girl provides service either physically, emotionally, or even in a sexual manner, a girl's choice lies in the dynamic they choose. Vetting and negotiation are always necessary.

So what does a leathergirl do? Like all submissives, a leathergirl provides Service. What that Service entails is different for each leathergirl relationship o or dynamic. It can span from house cleaning chores, bootblacking shoes and gear, to detailed clerical office work, or simply being a submissive in a kink scene (which can also be rewards for service from their d-types), or all of the above. All or none of these things are available for negotiations and are necessary topics of conversation before entering into any scene, service contract, or exchanging power in that type of D/s Dynamics.

Dynamics do not happen in a day. So knowing all the right things to do or all the expectations in this type of D/s dynamics will be taught over a period of time (trust the process), and as soon as the girl has achieved trust in the beginning levels of Service, the girl will then step up to more advanced level of consistent service, as the levels of trust and experience evolve.
