Paypig is a derogatory slang term used in findom or "financial domination" fetish circles in which a submissive person gets aroused by the idea of being financially subservient to a dominant person. In pop culture, a paypig is typically a man with a domination kink that pays large amounts of money to a female dominatrix, often while being consensually berated or humiliated for doing so. Paypigs are also called finsubs, money pigs or money slaves.
While submissive and dominant fetish lifestyles predate the internet, personal blogs and websites, as well as internet-based money transfer systems like PayPal, led to the fetish taking on its current form. Findom and paypig culture is notably a form of "distance domination" aided by the development of the modern internet.
An early example of the word "paypig" being used on a findom website is a post from January 23rd, 2004, by a blogger called "Princess" on a dot com website named Financial Domination (seen below, left).
