BDSM Topics

BDSM stands for Bondage, Discipline, Sadism and Masochism and is a form of play between two or more consenting adults. BDSM uses the exchange of power and/or the experience of pain in a variety of scenarios to enhance the human experience (Kashiko, 2011). There is nothing sinister about the practice of BDSM and it is nothing to be ashamed of. It is the difference between preferences of certain types of interaction and experience. Beneath is a list of informational topics that I consider important knowledge and considerations for those engaging in BDSM.
